another nascar race and another whine by Dale Jr.about why its someone else's fault he lost yet another race.The guy is getting embarrassing .....did you see him being interviewed? looking around and pointing as if trying to validate his own rambling by pointing out the culprit that caused him to lose.

the bump was clearly HIS fault and then when HE violated pit rules and was fined a lap it was the officials fault or the dumb rules or whoever....according to Jr its always someone elses fault......even Jrs.crew chief looked bewildered in trying to explain why Jr. did what he did in the pits....

Triple -

In any Sprint Cup race, if half the laps have been run it is considered OFFICIAL!

Kenseth went from 43rd to 1st and ran up front within the top 5 from lap 15 on...he deserved this win! He made an awesome pass at the end with the help of Harvick and he earned that right!

I would have loved to see the race continue but the rain in Florida ( I know because I live there)can go on for hours and with the humidity it's tough to dry out the track...this race could have resumed after Midnight....it's not fair to ask the fans and everyone else to wait that long....think about it!

Don't get mad because mother nature butt in....

Well in my opinion.

I think NASCAR should get tires that runs through the ran.Because i dont like shortened races escpically the 500.

I think they should move the start time back to 12:30 like it was for yrs. if it aint broke don't fix it. the race could've finished without rain.

in the same interview, at first he said he was to blame. at the end he said it was Vickers fault. which is it JR?

I agree Lynn.....they should move the race back to an earlier time. What was the reason they moved it in the first place - so they have a night race???

It's too bad because it would have been awesome to see the rest of the race and the bumpin' and grindin' we always see the last 25 laps or so....

Even if Kenseth would have lost - which he had a great car so maybe not - I would have loved to see the rest of it!

If I was attending the race I would have the right to be mad.They couldve delayed the last laps until today an determined a true winner.
But since I was sitting on my couch eating chips an salsa an didnt pay the price of admission ~outrageous prices btw~ I still wanted to see them battle down the straightaway on the final lap.

i agree. i still think it should be moved back to 12:30 where it always was until bill france sr died. there have been changes since then. not all good i must say.

matt winless didnt win, nascar gave him that race. thats the only way he can "win" a race!

they felt sorry for him because he hasnt won a race in almost two years.

sorry but a pity win still makes him matt winless!
