What a great article!!! This should set the record straight. Mistakes happen and the race goes on. If Jeff Burton and Brian Vickers can let it go, then so should everyone else. This is going to be a fresh start for everyone and let the past rest.

What, did you talk to him? Obviously you must know him pretty well! I am sure he told you his deepest thoughts. Really dont think he will take that chance.

Although i disagree with Burton that Jr is at fault for i feel that it was Vickers stupidity that caused that mess, i respect Burton and his opinion and i like the way he put his point. Burton is my second fav driver, of course behind Jr, but it sounds like Burton isnt bitter or anything, although i think it's probably a different story with Vickers, but he's pathetic anyways, how many wins does he have in his entire Cup career? Oh, yea, just one where he had to intentionally wreck his teammate to win!

Anyone who wrecks Little E is insane. All the drivers wont even comment on him.

Aw,I've been gone for a week. So glad to see the nation has regrouped and decided once again that the world is wrong and Jr. is right. Checking a few polls around it looks like over 80% of fans DON'T AGREE WITH THE NATION! Now that Jr. has stepped up and taken responsibility for the wreck, what does the nation say now? Was he really responsible OR is he just saying it to get back in the good graces of the media and fans? HMMMMM????

^ I knew he'd take responsibilty for it sooner or later. He always does. Do I feel it was his fault??? Not entirely. I think Vickers should take a big chunk of the blame as well. But it's time to move on. Other crap will happen this year.

So please stick to something you know about kid.
Sounds like you're the whiny little crybaby like Vickers. Get over it! Jr took responsiblity cause that's the kind of man he is. His performance is ok with me.
