Hey what do you expect when you have the lead car and second place car duking it out on the bottom of the race track? I don't think that Brad was going to sit back and twiddle his thumbs while they did that. He saw an opening and he took it. It is all apart of racing. Glad he won. He is a talented driver.

I am watching Nascar Now and they just showed footage of the media conference after the race yesterday and Kyle Busch and Brain Vickers were there talking about what happened, and Kyle Busch just as much said, that Brian should have just let him go so that he could win the race and not Brad. OMG!!! Does Kyle really think that Brian was going to do that? It was good clean racing. Brian was doing what he had to do to try to win the race and Kyle has the nerve to say that. What a JERK!!!! I am glad that he lost and hopes that he looses the rest of the season and stays out of the top 12.

WOO HOO, CONGRATS Brad, what a great race that was!!
Kyle, also said ...Brad didn't deserve the win! WTH?? He must think exactly what BV said..that it's The Kyle Show ! How sad to waste great talent as he is. The kid needs someone to give him a long hard talk, or he may just get his walking papers as he did at HMS !
It might get very exciting out there today,lol Jr. may not be winning, doing very poor on the tracks.. but at least he still acts like a man.. And not a cry baby!

Try to see past your blinders.. Brad won that fair, square. Vickers was man enough to see that as well! Too bad Kyle doesn't understand they all are racing to win !
They are not out there to be a part of his side show he so badly wants. He would sure get more postive attention w/ a better attitude, not this STUCK ON KYLE chit! jmo

WHAT KYLE SAID WAS: Vickers didn't see Brad coming and was just racing Kyle and Brad slipped thru. He said that EITHER HE or Vickers should have won the race. I agree. Vickers and Kyle were driving as hard as they could and Brad sat back and played it safe like most drivers and got a free pass. I'd rather see them fight for it. You people hate on him so much because he doesn't talk after a race and then you don't listen when he does.

I agree with you on the long talk part, but Not sure he will ever be fired from his ride as long as he keeps making the sponsors money, and JGR Money.

Wow, this is what the nation is reduced to, huh? He's not winning but he's a sweetheart. His dad would probably be prouder of that than anything. Dale probably would have disowned Jr. and adopted Kyle by now if he were still around. I am SURE that Kyle would have been driving for DEI if Dale were here because Kyle is Dales kind of driver.

Good point.lol
Lisa, I hope someone will give him the talk he needs. As you know I have always said the boy was a great driver.
And, I hope to see him in the chase.

Brad was so excited that he won...I think that makes people really like a driver more when they are truly appreciative of their win. Congrats to Brad. Kyle and Brian needed to pay a little more attention to who is around them.

"Oh, man, I am so sorry -- I forgot it was the Kyle Busch show," Vickers said sarcastically after climbing from his car. "Hell, I thought we were racing for a win.... I thought it was my job to hold him off. Apparently not. He came over to the car after we came in and knocked the fender in, which was unnecessary, and then started crying like a little baby.

"I asked him if he'd give me a minute to get out we could talk about it like men. If he wanted to fight, that was fine with me. When I got out, he ran off. It's a shame that it went down like that. We were racing hard. I thought it was a good race. Congratulations to the 88 [Keselowski]. He snuck around both of us. I didn't see him coming."

"It's so frustrating that you can't have a guy race you clean," Busch said. "He was on our right rear quarter panel all the way down the front straightaway and gave the win to the 88 car. He slowed us down so much -- he had no idea the 88 car was coming, and the 88 just drove right by both of us on the outside, because Brian Vickers was trying to slow both of us down. Just stupid.

"If he would have ran his own line up at the top of the track, and I had run my own line down at the bottom of the track, it could have been us two. But, unfortunately, you race with idiots, and I guess you'll have that sometimes."

Wooooo! Awesome race. Congratulations Brad. Should be an interesting race today. Nascar is going to be all over it. I really think Brian could have taken Kyle down. JMO.

"I race everybody the way they race me,'' Vickers said. "We were racing for the win. Kyle, if you want to be upset with that, I'm sorry. That's my job to try and win the race. If anyone else disagrees, if anyone else thinks I should have just rolled out of it and let Kyle win, please raise your hand. I'm fine. The only thing I'm upset with is how he handled it after the race. I'm sure we can get past that.''

No one "SHOULD" win the race, your not entitled to win just because you dominated all day. You have to earn it, and in this case Brads patience paid off. Kyle will never be a true championship driver. He carries his emotions like a girl. That might be exactly what makes him a good driver , but he can't control his emotions when it counts like a true champion does. I wonder if his nic name "rowdy" came from all his temper tantrums

It was a conspiracy by Chevrolet!!!

Toyota has never won at MIS.

Two Toyota's have a Chevy go pass to take the win?

Does Vickers (a former Chevy driver) hold KB up so BK can win?
