Perfect. So you willingly admit its okay for Kyle to help Denny.

Thats all we needed to know.

I can answer that for you. Buy a brain. Get one that works. You talk your crap about how they told the OWNERS (as u put in all caps) but that dont mean the drivers can't make their own decisions where they drive. It means team owners cant order them to.

And ya know what I'd say to that?? Here's a quick scenario:
Owner: "We've been told that I cant suggest you guys do anything to help a team mate during this race. I can't tell you to block, or push anyone, for instance."
Me: "And I can't in any way submit that you suggested it."
Owner: "Great, now we have an understanding."
...And then I'd proceed to push people past my opponents team mate, and block people from catching/passing him.

And I like how you cry about Stewie helping someone when kyle was out there helping Hamlin. I can almost guarentee you every team in contention went over this unmentioned rule of fair play: Do NOT make it easy for someone to beat your own team!! How stupid do you have to be, not to understand that?

Fake, stupid, and white trashy.

I beg to differ. Denny doesn't have the necessary instinct. He should not have put himself in that compromising position, and damn sure shouldn't have guessed that staying out would miraculously keep him moving forward when everyone behind him was coming for tires. Under caution, you do what everyone behind you does, and thats just common sense.
I would hate to be Denny right now, he's probably beating himself up over this in the worst way, and it might effect his performance come next season. I mean, how do you forgive yourself for that? How do you battle with the logic and reality that you failed in the one race that matters most after leading in points?
I think Denny has a lot of talent and will Unseat JJ IMO.

Jimmie Johnson is the best auto car racer since Michael Schumaker. His 5 championships in a row is nothing short of a dynasty. You all haters should bow at his greatness. He is Nascar's new "King". No one ever in Nascar will win 5 in a row. He has set a new standard and raised the bar. Love him or hate him but he is no doubt "The Man"!

they held a meeting this morning to tell the team OWNERS that there would be no team strategy allowed.. well Tony Stewart, who had been my favorite driver until today helped Jimass by getting alongside Kyle Busch to let Jimass finally get past Kyle... then I saw Mark Martin boot Denny Hamlin... there was to be no team strategy, but HMS could not abide by that rule because that is ALL THEY HAVE... they usually BLOCK Tony... did Rick promise Tony that He could be HMS #2 team next year???? Tony could get the bread crumbs of Jimass's "wins" next year?
during the chase.. Jimass qualified 21st in a race but still ended up with an amazing pit stall... which was CHEATING because it would NOT happen... and he won that race, giving him the points necessary to be in position to be a championship contender..
Rick Hendricks and his finaggling with his multiple teams and now with SHR is responsible for destroying the integrity of this sport.. they used to get caught cheating after every single win... then they won off pit road because of the wing on the back of the car and no one with dirty air being able to control their car... then today,, they had all their teams punting the competiton around...
they SUCK... what am I going to do with all the money I save not going to races next year?? good question because it is about $500 several times a year... thank you Rick Hendrick for saving me sooo much money...
Jimmie STILL SUCKS... and they can NOT force us to think he is a racer.. the big baby crying whenever he DOES have to race..
So, you say that Hendrick cheats and his drivers can't win without cheating?

I guess what you're really pissed about is that Dale Jr is on the (cheatin') Hendrick team, and even with that...and NASCAR cheating, bending and breaking the rules to favor Dale Jr, he still sucks big time. You hate that Dale Jr can't win, even with the cheating.

Booo hoooo!

Don't confuse the enlightened debrobeaudean, she did buy herself a brain...at the 88 hauler. Problem is, nothing emblazoned with 88 works...so her brain is malfunctioning and all they can accomplish is a 20-something place finish.

As I have stated before I J J was an average BUSCH driver - I believe he made a deal with the devil - other than Rick Hendrick who I believe should still be banned for life from NASCAR - I believe the secret with the 48 car is spindle location

lmao funny thing is I kinda think the old school drivers are hating this guy smashing all their records, but thats what records are for, because the day of the turntable is long gone.

Just too bad those old timers couldn't handle racing in this day and age, except for Mark Martin who is literally as fit or more so than many other drivers. He's the only old-timer who proved that up until 2010- He was still championship material.

What happened with most every other old-timer who was able to win?? If Dale E was out there, I think maybe he'd get a fluke win or two but I don't see him being top-10 material. He'd maybe be back there with Dale Jr unless he wrecks everyone who could outrun him. But with the 'boys have at it' in play, that's exactly what would happen until people started understanding they need to give Dale what he gives them. It'd be Brad K at Atlanta all over again for the #3 car and I'd be cheering my ASS off.

Wow BooHoo grow the f**k up you loser! 48 is not a 5 X champ because he cheats or he sucks, if you really were a true race fan, you would just know that Jimmie and Chad are Dominate together, and as far as Tony Stewart helping the 48 again if you were a true race fan you woUld know that the 14 has HMS in his car, and really oh 14 was helping the 48 ohhh waaaaahhhhhh so get over it already JIMMIE JOHNSON ROCKS AND HE IS THE 5 X CHAMP SO GET USE TO IT!!!!! WOW REALLY? All I can say is WOW you must be a child so I am not even gonna argue with you, Hope Santa brings you a new attitude for Christmas, and a maybe a nascar rule book for Christmas, you can pick any driver you want to root for, ok Sorry you like the wrong one this year because you really sound goofy with this off the wall comments!
