well too bad NASCAR didn't have the time to soften the front bumpers. That looks like a much better option than this so called policing policy. NASCAR has never done too great a job policing stuff like this. They definatly will find themselves regretting a situation sooner or later with too many judgement calls, esp. in the plate races. I also don't know why they wouldn't just mandate a smaller motor and scrape the plates. The teams already build special cars for these two tracks so why not make a smaller hp motor? It just makes no sense to build a 700+ hp motor and then restrict is air/fuel flow to bring it back to like 550 hp or whatever it is, when they could just have 550 hp motors built for daytona and talladega in the first places

you know what I think? I think with their complete paranoia about the bump draft at Dega,, that they are the ones who made most of the drivers afraid to race.. still Kyle was willing to bump but they told him to stop.. NASCAR needs to trust the drivers to race the cars, they need to quit interferring.

and also, thank you for reminding me that the reason they can pull their crap off is because many fans have the IQ of a pea, like them.

Just food for thought. The hardest (and best) bump of the race put JG into victory lane.

Oh joy another hand that does not need to be in the race. if your going to take bumb drafting out take the plates out. Otherwise we might as well watch a 43 car train running around a 2.5 mile track.

If nascar quits interfering then conceivably races will be won by drivers, not yellow flags. Cant let that happen to gordon or johnson. The fix was in this year and it was blatent. nascar IS professional wrestling.

NASCAR is such a "has been" that they have people suiting them trying to get a race. NASCAR is such a "has been" that their race schedule is divided up between three major networks. It's strange that the France Family has grown this sanctioning body into the worlds foremost racing series. It's even stranger that this "has been" is THE place that every talented driver aspires to be. OH, how much better NASCAR would be if they took you and Debi Does on their chief advisors!!!!! By the way, what the hell is it that DEBI DOES?
