well, as usual at a restrictor plate track, Tony was abandoned when NASCAR called a phantom debris caution for several reasons first and foremost, they wanted jr to be back in the hunt, secondly they did not want a major pile up due to how many cars running out of gas? so, they called a phantom debris caution, thus ensuring the Big One.. that they actually promote as exciting,, and then when it happens because the leader is turning into turn 1 on the last lap, leading and the guy coming fast, being pushed, as the leader is now alone and needs to find a nose to ride on or fall deep in the field fast on this the last lap, gets turned...Tony is the one that said if anyone blocks me I will wreck them. He was the one blocking. All I can say is
he needed about 19 Helmets thrown in his face.He just needs to shut up after this deal.I like Tony but according to him its o.k. for him to block but not for anyone else.What do you think about this Debi??????????
It was a racing deal... it was Dega..
the ONLY driver who had fault with Tony was Clint.. Mikey appreciated Tony taking the blame, it was big of Tony to say he blocked. I was listening to his channel, watching it and they showed mikey hit Tony in the left rear quarter panel and I thought he flat out wrecked Tony... then to watch it as it happened from above,, it was a racing deal.. ensured by the phantom debris caution as usual.... they seriously do need to shorten the restrictor plate race in the chase because it is pathetic to watch a guy who almost lost the draft several times throughout the race actually squeak through the wreck, apologize to his fans who he knows hated what he did all race long.. and this guy might be the "champ"????? unbelieveable... Dega is not only DANGEROUS.. it is amazing that no one has been killed there with the aerial crashes that are the results of those races... that track should be filled with water, turned into a swimming hole, a fishing hole... Dega stinks IMO no matter who crashes out.. but that is my opinion because I personally do not like not only NASCAR messing with races because they do not want guys who refuse to go in for the splash of gas they NEED, to wreck out people, yet the phantom debris caution they call WILLLL provide a crash anyhow...
I feel for Tony because I remember how many restrictor plate races he would be leading, all set to take the checkers when a phantom debris caution would steal his partner, reload the guys who can line up by manufacturer or teams... restrictor plate races now STINK big time, back when both lanes could go and the pack would be an omeba that did not favor a pair of 2, THAT was when restrictor plate racing was legitimate. it no longer is IMO
I am not going to Daytona this next year for several reasons, this being one of them,, the other is the rain deal from last year that was BS, running the race the next day so late.. NASCAR is suffering their manipulations of the sport to its own demise. I feel for racers like Tony who are trying hard to keep the sport alive.
Clint Bowyer should keep his big fat mouth shut.
just as I defended AJ when they blames HIM for changing lanes to block Denny coming up the middle, I defend Tony for trying to win this race.
It is a pity Mark wasn't in that 55... with the patience he thinks he has that he always reprimands others for not having.,, Tony would not have been wrecked by that 55 car..
