Jeff Burton called last week's banging wreckfest at Sonoma, Calif., "ridiculous" and said drivers need to start showing each other more respect.

Maybe it's time Burton took up RC racing instead of Richard Childress racing. It's called road course racing! Too many of these vanilla drivers have gotten soft in the years since we lost Dale. They need to put on their "big boy pants" and get up on the wheel and RACE! Another great example of the difference between DRIVERS and RACERS.

I have a lot of respect for Jeff Burton and around the garage he's considered a go to guy by his peers but you're right nobody races like they used to. The start and finish of the races today are the only excitement. Jeff Gordon is the best example of what I'm talking about. Since Jeff became a father he doesn't race "all out". He could win a lot more races if he would race like he used to. I'm beginning to be interested in other things while the race is on TV. I don't watch any Nascar event in it's entirety. The start and maybe the last 40 laps is it. How do you view the Cup series?

On DVR, in fast forward, until a yellow or the last 20 laps. Even at that, I'm bored.....

RCR Racing ( http://hartfordauto.thehartford.com/Hartford-... ) needs to toughen up Burton!
