Let me rephrase what i said earlier: I don't like Sonoma, I like Watkins Glen. Sonoma is boring.
And I have no sympathy for Kyle Busch. His bad luck is only a product of his actions last year. I'm sure he'll rebound next year though.
And what was so bad last year? That he didn't take **** from that little **** Harvick?
I think Keselowski was aggressive but didn't wreck Kyle on purpose. They both went for the same space at the same time, and Brad wasn't just going to slam on the brakes to let Kyle move up in front of him, especially with Marcos Ambrose breathing down his neck already.
Were we watching the same race? Kyle started fishtailing due to the oil on the track (which, contrary to what Kes said post-race, did not come from Kyle, it came from Jason Leffler earlier in the race, and should have been cleaned up by NASCAR) and Kes moved right in, sticking the nose of the car to the back quarter panel of Kyle's car. What was gonna happen? Of course he was going to spin out. I'm not saying he should have let Kyle go, but wait until he straightens out and race him clean
. But Keselowski didn't do that, because he can't. Kyle would have beat him, so he had to cheat.
I will commend him for being a good sport after the race though.
And they were so ironic and hypocritical considering what he did to Kyle.
And I feel really bad for both Tony Stewart and Jeff Gordon.
Yeah, Smoke had a monster to drive. He was tearing through the field until he spun out. Blame belongs in the same place it does (mostly) in Kyle's wreck. NASCAR. They didn't clean the track properly. Gordon? I don't feel that bad for him. He had a **** car to start with. I'm not saying I'm happy for his misfortune, but he didn't have it flipped upside on him like Tony did.
And yes, Dale Jr has found yet another reason to give his own fans less credibility. He did admit he made a mistake, though.
Yeah, and even though I love ragging on the guy as well as his fans, I will give him this: once again, the blame belongs on NASCAR. The track wasn't clean.
