I'm ashamed at Mike Bliss & his team for what they pulled. Bliss clearly said he would help LaBonte since they were a start-&-park! Bliss stayed on track banking on more start-&-parks just so he could get enough points to make sure he gets in the top 35 in points!? PATHETIC!!!!!

LaBonte got so ill he had to get out of the car himself & get to the care center. In addition, since the 2 DNQers, Scott Riggs & Scott Speed, went home, they weren't around to help either. That was a chicken move that Bliss & his team pulled. Luckily, Michael McDowell came to the rescue & helped LaBonte's team out since they knew they were a start-&-park & were advised over the situation. Thank you Michael McDowell!

New rule: If you're a DNQer, stay at the track anyways in the instance a driver in the race does get ill, so stuff like this doesn't happen again!

Here's hopeing LaBonte will be ok!

Very well stated Mary. I hope Labonte gets well soon too. He's one of of the few still going that I remember watching as a kid.
