I feel for Kahne but I'm sure he's eating his words right now. He had a right to be annoyed, but had it been him blowing a tire running over the debris he would have complained just the same.

on a 2 mile track with stands only on the front stretch.. why does anyone think a person with binoculars can tell the composition of debris??? when they showed it on camera.. it sure looked like it was something metal..

IMO, I do believe that NASCAR from time to time manipulates the race and/or rules to benefit a potential more exciting finish or to put a popular driver in the winners circle. They are not stupid, the officials know who's fans are buying tickets and merchandise. I think more people are on to them now and its hurting some drivers.

the reason you buy fords is beacause they have good cars and trucks 2nd they have a waranty 3rd the government doesn't own 60% of ford unlike chevy beacause chevy had to borrow money from the government in order to stay in buissness and all ford is the car to buy

But Ford is not known for it's quality. They build them to blow up after a certain amount of time. Probably will last until the warranty runs out, then the engine goes.

Though I believe they actually have a good hybrid, Chevy is still struggling to catch up when it comes to hybrids.
