I cannot tell if Jr is causing these wrecks because of a lack of talent or a lack of interest in racing. Either way the no one on the broadcast really wanted to blame him. He is too popular, sometimes

I think if you would pay attention to what was going on during a race you would know what happened. And if you cant follow by watching maybe you can by listening. Jr. spun his tires, and Kyle was racing a lil hard on the take off, hit Truex. Was it really Kyles fault? Was it Jr's fault? No ,I say it is hard racing . But Kyle, did take the blame, did ya hear that? So, Why not pay attention next time, before placing blame on someone just for your pleasure.

It makes you think what race was that poster watching because his view is different from the one I saw.

It was both KB and Jr. fault, but facts are facts and Jr.(by not having a good restart) is ultimately the one to blame.

It's kind of hard to blame a guy (KB) for taking off on the restart and hitting someone (MT) who is suppose to be taking off but can't because someone (Jr) didn't take off.

I know I'm going to get bashed, but the truth is the truth and if you watched it you know I'm right.

Hmmmmmm.....

If by "us" you mean you and your little sheep herd, then the "brain capacity" comment is a joke.

If by "us" you mean those who actually use there brains (have a job, life, etc.) then I will be the first to say "Goodbye Shimit you don't have the brain capcity nor are you an adult".

Not a shimit. Glad to see the real world hasn't changed you a bit Jimbo. You are still as nasty as can be. Perhaps your wife doesn't pleasure you enough.

So he spun the tires, I am sure your precious biff has done the same thing once before. Get over your obsession with Jr.

"When I was in the care center, I saw the replay and it looked like the 18 was just completely impatient," said Brian Vickers, also involved in the crash. "Very normal. Just hooked [Truex] in the right rear and turned him in front of the field. If you wreck somebody on the straightaway, you kind of should be black-flagged for it, but that's NASCAR's call, not my call. That's the second week in a row that stupidity has cost us a race, and it's frustrating. I guess everybody just learns to expect Kyle doing something stupid. Stupid is forever."

Jeff Burton, David Ragan and Kevin Harvick also were knocked out, while David Reutimann and Casey Mears suffered damage. Truex, mired in a miserable season, waited on Busch to circle past under the ensuing caution, and faked throwing his helmet at the No. 18 car before getting into the ambulance for his mandatory ride to the care center.

BRIAN VICKERS"This isn't Pocono or Michigan. The front straightaway isn't 30 car-lengths wide. People get checked up. You just have to chill out and wait until you can race them," Truex said. "I don't race on a restart basically with 150 laps to go or whatever it was. There was no reason for it. Our car is tore up, and I am pissed about it."

Somebody else blamed Busch, as well -- Busch himself. The Joe Gibbs Racing driver made a point of apologizing in every interview he did after the race.

"I've got to apologize to all the guys who got tore up in that melee there," he said. "It wasn't meant to happen like that. From my vantage point, the 88 [car of Earnhardt] spun his tires, and I shot for the middle. The middle closed up when the 42 [car of Juan Montoya] came down a little bit, and I pinched myself with the 1 [car of Truex]. I just barely tapped him in the right rear and sent him sideways and spinning down the frontstretch. I hate it for those guys. I don't know if they're in a Chase berth or not, but I hate it for Martin and Jeff Burton and the rest of the guys who got tore up there. My fault on that deal."

And the personal insults have started! great job! Anyways Jr did spin his tires which has happened to him before but to place all the blame on him is wrong I also believe Kyle is not at fault either. its one of those things what if Kyle hadn't tried to race so hard as he usually does what if Jr hadn't spun the tires. Still a Jr fan! I was cheering for Ryan to win,he and Tony have an awesome team going on.

It was not dale's fault as usual it was that slug Kyle. He is not as talated as people say. Just remimber 2 years ago when he was at H. He sucked as a driver and a person. I mean come on people all of his wins are againts drivers who are at the end of their carees (no offence to the drivers in the truck series I like alot of them). Or in the NW series with a bounch of young guys trying to make a name for themselves or from all of his but buddies from sprint. Dales numbers are alot better then Kyles ever will be because in case none of you have noticed his true talant has been coming back out the last couple of weeks and that is he is a total loser.

Maybe Truex would win some races if he did race on the restarts. He needs to remember that there was rain in the forecast and anytime after the race was 1/2 way over should be the time to go.

From Kyle vantage point the 88 spun his tires. Question if he saw Dale spin his tires why the heck did he hit the gas. what a JA

Junior spun the tires, but it was Kyle who tried to take it three wide at New Hampshire. Boy needs to learn to cool his jets when there is still half of the race to go.
