Yes he wrecked Burton but He Manned up about it and admitted it was his fault, Would Danica admit fault to anything?
DP admitting the incient with James Buescher was her fault;

I drifted up and kind of got into him on the lap before and I didnt mean to, said Patrick,I thought I was clear. Its my fault."

So the answer to your question is YES.

Now answer my question.

Why do you feel the need to deflect attention and bring DP into the fact that Jr. wrecked JB?

JR. is a bigger and better man than his dear old daddy was. At least when JR. screws up he is man enough to admit a mistake. I watched his old man race for years and 40 times live at various Nascar tracks and never once did I hear that S.O.B. admit that he made a mistake. So therefore the dirty pr... meant to wreck people for a win.
Admit he made a mistake?? He never made a mistake - he knew exactly what he was doing at all times. Like it or not, that's what made him a 7 time champion. So why apologize??

It happened because Junior doesn't have the talent to bump draft. Junior hit Burton and took him out, it doesn't matter what Junior meant to do, fact is, he made a bonehead move and it took out a good Chase driver. Only good thing about it, is that it also messed up Junior's day. Karma!
Junior needs to stay in the back of the pack where he's comfortable with the familiar surroundings so he doesn't take out the competitive drivers when he messes up.
Oh c'mon you're reaching. The guy has won more then once at Talledega, he knows how to bump draft. You seem to be the one with something to get over.

Since you say he never made a mistake, I s'pose he knew exactly what he was doing when he decided not to wear the safety gear that likely would have saved his life. Like it or not, when he got knocked into the wall like he'd done to so many others, he got just what he had coming to him. That's what made him dead, that's what he got for abusing his eighth grade education.

Nascar helped him win the championship 7 times by letting him get away with the crap that he did.
Dirtiest F... to ever race in Nascar.

Thank you for the (Correct information) we all know, I watched him for years bump and run people into the walls, He got what he deserved. How many times did thay have to take him in B-4 a race to try to tell him NO dirty racing, I remember Rusty Wallace and him having it out many times on the track, Thank god Rusty got the better of him in a lot of races, Gave him what he deserved. THE WALL.

Well even the winner hit Ambrose and knocked him down in front of Kevin. I have not heard any complaints about that. Kevin would have won that race if his teammate had not caused Kevins car to be torn up.

The "stuttering idiot" should apologize for masquerading as a Cup driver.

Not cruel, just the truth. Sometimes the facts aren't pretty, but that don't make 'em any less factual. Sr was a bully on the track and one day someone knocked him into the wall and killed him at his own game. He deserved it. How many times had he risked other driver's lives when he knocked them into the wall? No, there's nothing cruel about accepting the truth.
