    Are you serious? Im getting the feeling you are saying this sport is easy on the body if you are. While not as gruelling as a contact sport flipping your car 4 or 5 times at 200mph cant be that fairy like.

    I got 6th last year and that was good enough to take the Gold in my smaller league. Hendricks Homeboys will be back.

    Flipping cars is not even really an issue - the heat, the g forces on your body for 400/500 laps. Not to mention a pace of a football field a second, being inches apart from one another and 42 other cars to avoid all while staying mentally sharp. One slip and the potential for killing yourself and several others becomes reality.

    Anytime some one says all it is 'is left hand turns" tells me they know very little about racing.

    Yeah I like using quick exaggerated examples. Im sure stopping in an instant while doing 150-200 mph when you hit the wall could be a little tough on the body/brain. Its the freak aspect I was pointing out. Siting in a car is NOT comfy boys....its a sport and requires much more training and BALLS than you would think from watching on TV. It is physically demanding but not as gruelling as a contact sport. Hey imagine how many guys get knuckle busted preparing those cars...thats gotta count for something

    It wasn't just novice drivers taking out contenders - the 24 bump drafting in the corner had to be the bone head move of the race.

    - and NASCAR's signature event was full of potholes

    Well not to start an inquest or anything....but the 24 has has his share of being in the other spot and judging from his stance in the Shootout and the race it aint gonna be like that anymore.

    I thought Harvick got extremely unlucky with that Elliot wreck and only 2 laps left. That was the best move of the race and the poor prick didn't get rewarded for it.

    Potholes? good lord

    Dubz - I could see that if the 24 had been having issues during the race but from what I could tell he was raced clean all day.

    You're probably right...I just have my 24 goggles on

    The track falling apart was the real issue here.....embarrassing

    Im not a Jeff Burton fan either...what a fucking tool after the race, somebody should punch his whiney ass face. I know you are a fan Mocat but that was just wrong...Kyle has been having a tough go lately and to try and add to it is idiotic. Im positive that its out of character for Burton but real bad timing for something like that. Im surprised he didnt get slapped like a little bitch (I like Kyle but think he is getting fat and too big for his britches...dont get me wrong)

    I turned the race off as soon as it was over and went to bed - I have no idea what happened.

    Apparently Burton has chosen that this is time to "demand respect" IMO it bad timing and shows poor taste/class considering the struggles Ktle has been having "off" the track etc. To me it really seemed like a "gang up" on Kyle type of tirade.

    I sort of over reacted tho (whats new) I made it seem nastier than it was but the timing really irked me.

    Who knows what actually happened .......... race coverage by FOX is extremely lacking unless your a Hendrick driver.

    I think Burton is probably frustrated - he has had a couple of wins in the bag this season and last taken away by other driver's carelessness.

    Plus Burton was top 10 all night - even up to 3rd at one point ..... that last restart he was sitting 6th and coming ...........then next thing you know he is in the pits for some mysterious reason. Thats a long hot race - maybe a heat of the moment deal.

    I imagine more details will come out as the week progresses but until then - I'll give Burton the benefit of the doubt, considering you can count on one hand the number of issues Burton has had like this is in his entire career and vice versa with Kyle.

    - I'll see what I can find out through the grape vine ......... One of Burton's crew usually posts a race synopsis on a racing forum I visit.

    The thing with Ambrose was he had plenty of gas so there was no reason to coast...he said that he was told to do it in post race interview.

    I love road course racin'
