Brad Keselowski summed it up best after climbing out of his car and congratulating the crew members on the No.

he didn't win. NASCAR gave it to him by not throwing the caution.

amen. It was nascar's fault. can not believe they did not throw a caution; the crew chiefs heard from their drivers that #47 had thrown oil on the track.

Exciting race is one thing, but NASCAR just showed us once & for all, that they are not "safety consciencious" like they say they are! They proved it last year at that track & did the same thing again yesterday! Even if Keselowski would have won I would not approve of the way the race ended based on the fact there was oil on the track for 3 laps & nothing was done! To me, Watkins Glen is DONE for good... Shame too; It was actually my favorite road course...

I wish I could've seen this rather than having to work, but yeah oil on the track is supposed to be an automatic caution...heck a piece of paper is an automatic caution....OK I saw the replay and yeah there should've been a caution.

If Keslowski keeps running as strong as he has this year, I don't think he'll be an underdog much longer

Who's led the points for most of the season...Either Greg Biffle or Matt Kenseth.
I still think the chase is a joke...Already had this discussion once before, but Chevy would not have won the last 7 under the old format (mainly the 5 won by johnson)

Dude, it could be 2020 and you'd STILL be thinkin' the Chase is a joke. Under the old format this & under the old format that, pfftt, please bro. They changed the format BECAUSE of a Ford. You can't win 1 race and expect to be a champ. Ask Roid Rage Carl last year (a Ford). How ironic is it to see Matt Kenseth LEAVING a Ford! LOL

Wow, you people will complain about everything. I'm, for one, am glad that they didn't give us a caution. One, it gave everyone a exciting finish... and two, it gave a chance for Ambrose to show off his talent. Which he did. He won. He DESERVED that win. It's not like NASCAR ''gave it to him''. Brad could of easily won it too... Thank goodness for no caution. These are talented drivers, let them prove it.
