People, people, people. As long as there are large, heavy pieces of metal being driven by testosterone fueled humans who all think they are the best thing that ever happened to the world, going 190 miles an hour around in circles with 42 others doing the same, there is going to be a wreck. A big wreck. And someone's driver is going to end up on the losing end of it. Sh*t happens. Can someone please come up with a new topic?

Um, Matt Kenseth won dodo brain.
the only reason matt winless has a win in his coloumn is nascar called the race. and that was to end his loosing streak! if jeff had been in the lead they would have stayed til midnite and restarted that race! announcers were getting nasty emails from fans pointing out how they were ragging on the 24 car for not winning in 41 races. yet matt winless hadnt won in more than that. thats why nascar called that race. sorry but matt winless didnt earn that race.

Nice try Dale can't win a race wrecking a 1/4 of the field plus his own teammate. Vickers only took out two drivers for a win.
wreaking two drivers as opposed to wreaking more drivers? makes it ok?

isnt that like saying two wrongs make a right?

geez only some dumbass vickers fan would use that logic!

did you know that at that talladega race they had to surround vickers with security guards and hide him until after everyone left the race track before he could leave the track. what a weenie!

you are so right!!!!!!!!!!
many many times roush drivers and phoney stewart and kyle tush have done things that other drivers have gotten penalties for! it depends on what mood the officals are in that day.
You mean like last season when Kyle Busch ran over his airhose and wasn't pentalized? Or when Kyle Busch passed a car below the yellow line at the Daytona 400 in July and wasn't pentalized and went on to win the race? Are these the type of things you're talking about?

The point is Vickers can wreck to win. Earnhardt can wreck others and place 27th or so. Tell me how hot Dale is now.
You don't know one thing about jr and that's sad. He didn't place one lap down.
if you want to play who is a better driver, jr or vickers lets see who has won more races?

that would be jr! with 18 wins-86 top 5 finishes-137 top ten finishes

to vickers one ( which any real nascar fan will tell you he didnt win)14 top 5 finishes-34 top ten finishes. so who is hot?

NASCAR is great..the cars go around and around, and around and around the circle, around and around they go, around the circle, around and around. Around the circle, around and around. Crash..wait..around and around they go, around and around and again, around and around..O.K.!!!
let's see you get in one of these cars and drive around and around and around at 190+ miles an hour and see how long you before you hit the wall!

to me there are other sports more boring! like golf, would rather have root canal than watch that. or baseball only thing thats slower than baseball is farming!

I take it with the dignity and respect comment that you must have despised the late Dale E. The dirtiest S.O.B. on the track, you know the mother f...... that would run over any one for a victory.
By the way dude, I've watched a couple of races myself.
You are right. Get in his way, he'd put you into the wall. That's what made him the best driver in nascar history.
By the way. My brother owns a 92 SC tbird. Supercharged V6, 3.8L. 5 Spd. I bypassed the RPM limiter and he put a smaller pulley on the blower.
Clocked 171.76 MPH in the california desert.(!!!!) That's smokin, I don't care Hu U R.

Jimmy Spencer is a moron, regardless of who he is talking about, and let me tell you, if Dale Earnhardt was alive today you wouldn't have heard a peep from Jimmy because as big a moron as he is, he's an even bigger coward. That being said, Junior was a mess yesterday, it was his fault and Brian Vickers is a no talent hack. And talk about obnoxious fans, Bill Elliott's are the worst.
I dont see were he is a coward , he pretty much has no problem stating his opinion about anything, whether it comes to nascar or Mike Helton or Goodyear, or Earnhardt, from what I have seen he speaks his mind, do I agree with everything he says, no , but I do like the fact that he speaks his mind. I guess we will never know if he would have said that stuff about Sr, or not. I gotta disagree with you at the end, Jr fans are the most obnoxious by far. I go to races at least 3 times a year, and they are all the same, they think they own the whole track, and I saw it first hand at Daytona in July, Jr. fans were the majority of people throwing things on the track at Kyle Busch, and thats just dangerous.

Agressive Driving? How stupid is that? That's like putting rules in a knife fight.
Nascar racing without bumping and pushing isn't really a race. Just a demonstration of nutleyness.
And another thing. I like the fights. Let Em get PO'd @ each other. Just make sure sure every car is safe, And let Em duke it out on the track.
Get rid of all the buttlicker rules.
Is it a race, Or a night out with your ex wife?
Long as nobody gets killed.
Hey I know they gotta race, I like to see em bumping and pushing into each other, rubbin's racin' right:? But its not right to wreck good running lead cars to get the lucky dog../..
