I think Tony Stewart pushed Joe Gibbs across that yellow line.

I believe that tony stewart should not have won the race. He clearly shoved the other driver below the yellow line.

I think you all should worry as much about the current economy than what 43 men do on a race track. Smith should put on his big boy pants and get over it. He was asked to play in their sport, by their rules and he didn't and got moved to the back of the line,all of you whining about it after the fact is just silly, if you don't like it don't watch it. simple as that.

I have seen restrictor plate races when a driver does get penalized for forcing another below the line and it has always involved CONTACT... alongside, broadside contact. Tony did not touch Regan Smith. Regan has the control of his steering wheel, choosing to go to the left and he had control of his gas pedal, choosing to continue forward under the yellow line, thus an illegal pass. Tony won

OK to go below the yellow line but you can't advance your position...even if you are "forced" otherwise Smoke would have blocked him there too! If you can't race with the big boys then stay home and watch.

GO SMOKE!!!!!!!!!!

Ok Tony may be my least favorite driver, but unfortunately I am going to have to be on his side this one time... it wasn't a shove... more like a fight for real estate. NASCAR made the right call.

TV does add lbs to a person, I'm just wondering how many cameras was on Tony? LOL That yellow sucked! I think this is the last time he will have to wear it. Or at least I hope so.

I wouldn't care if he is wearing a diaper as long as he wins.

Who cares what he looks like??

Some times you just have to put all the gloom and doom away for a bit and focus on more enjoyable things. Thank goodness there are still some things that are enjoyable and chatting & bantering with cyber friends is one way of doing it.
