    That was a pretty good race. If Larson hadn't gotten impatient, he probably would have won. That kid can drive!

    Too many laps under yellow,won the race for Dillon.Traffic would have made the last segment interesting.

    So Bowyer finally gets even with Jeff Gordon, gets Truex in the chase and will forever be known as a cheater...classy.

    Edwards jumps the start, Kurt should have been the winner, but no black flag for Edwards...NASCAR is now even with Kurt Busch? They owed him, but they threw away any credibility they had left?


    What a joke.

    So MWR called Vickers in for no reason too? It was a full team involvement to screw Jeff Gordon and to get Truex into the chase...I'd park the whole damn company, chain up the doors and let them back in 1/1/2014. One of the dirtiest things I've seen in a long time in racing.

    Menard door slammed the 99 on the restart and spun his wore out tires. Edwards couldn't slow or the whole field would have wadded up. He did what he is supposed to do.

    The Clint spin, on the other hand, :huh

    That isn't what they told five time, cuzzin' Carl seems to get away with quite a bit...wonder who he is related to?

    I felt Jimmy was screwed when he had to do a drive through after his so called restart jump.

    I'd much rather see the drivers just stand on it once the green flag is in the air.

    But, the 2 wide restart shit is the villain in my mind, and people will routinely bitch about restarts until they go back to lead lap cars on the high side and lap down cars on the inside. There's always hope.

    That was complete bullshit. :topes

    Did you see the interview with Jr.? He couldn't believe that Boyer did what he did. Then Boyer claims that Jr. turned him with a straight face. That was the worst lie on live TV ever. Definitely a big black eye for MWR Boyer and Vickers.

    I disagree on the restart though. At first, I saw it as you but, on closer examination :D Menard beat Edwards out of the restart zone and began the acceleration but, rubbed Edwards and spun his tires. Not Edwards fault. Not that I like it but, he really won the race IMO.

    Think NASCAR will actually do something?

    I think it would be much better now if they would clearly mark the "Restart zone" for the spectators. It is just a couple hash marks on the side of the track and is really hard to see as it is now.
