    Still somewhat bitter about how that race finished. Was looking forward to an intense shootout between the leaders with a spot in the next round up for grabs and all we got was a messy restart crash that ended up causing a lot of controversy and frustration between fans. Still not a fan of what Harvick did on that start (from what the video showed along with replays), but it was a product of Talladega being a cutoff race, the way NASCAR had their G-W-C rules in effect that year on the plate tracks, Harvick needing to finish above a certain spot to advance, and having those late-race engine woes that had the crash not happened, Harvick would have dropped like a rock to the bottom half of the field and would have been eliminated.

    Not trying to make anyone upset or angry, but those are my thoughts. It was a good race, but with a disappointing finish that had myself along with others not overly happy about what went down on that restart.

    You know, I get that. It's not like Kevin purposely went out there and said, "Hey, I'm gonna wreck the field so I can have an easy way to make it into the next round!" His car was losing power and he did what he had to do. This is a product of NASCAR's "playoff" elimination system. If that wasn't in place, I guarantee you that he would not have done that. To add to that, anyone would have done that if they were in that situation. As I said last weekend, desperation can make people do things you never thought they would do.

    Sorry for all the hoopla; guess I was just a little tired of hearing about the same event over and over. At least my complaints about Kyle Busch are about varying events. lol

    I guess I am... NASCAR has forced these teams and drivers into a box, and with Kevin facing elimination, he did what he had to do to advance.

    My biggest beef with that Harvick incident was the restart before that. He pulled out of line and let people go past him, then the wreck on that restart happened and Nascar put him back in his original place in line place. In my opinion he should have lost those spots he gave up by pulling out of line and then this incident might not have had to happen.

    The Talladega race weekend thread will be up later tonight. Just have a few things to take care of before I get the Dover results up along with both of the Talladega threads.
