Best race I've watched in some time. Disappointed at what happened to Tony, but at least he's angry now, and angry Tony doesn't lose. Haha

Damn entertaining race last night. It didn't seem like anyone could pull away as the leader, until Hamlin did.

Stewart better be careful not to drop out of the top 10. If he loses those bonus points, that is going to hurt his chances of repeating. Yes, I know he won without any last year but he is not going to win 5 of 10 again.

Awesome race to be at, such a great time.

If you ever get a chance to go to Bristol, do it.

Around the time of the debris caution, ESPN showed viewers at home and on Sprint Vision screens at the track an in-car video of Keselowski throwing a water bottle out of his window during the green flag. While that's a common practice for drivers, it led many viewers to believe the caution was connected to the water bottle based on the TV images.
Quote:
Keselowski looked surprised and said he had no clue what Harvick was talking about, because it was news to him that a water bottle had caused the caution. The Penske Racing driver later said he was confused because he threw the bottle out of the window 15 or 20 laps before the caution, and that it was one of three bottles he tossed during the race.
ESPN is so retarded. Even if Keselowski did do it on purpose, which obviously he did not, what is so wrong with it? Nobody seemed to care when Earnhardt was throwing roll cage padding out of his window.

Joey Logano & Brad Keselowski will be a good duo i think. Penske might get 5+ wins next year.

I am becoming a huge Keselowski fan. I think he's starting to find consistancy and he always seems to find the top 10 even with garbage race cars. Also he made Kevin Harvick mad, so he scored big points with me

While I can't stand Logano much at all, I feel that he was rushed at JGR. He could have used a couple of years running trucks and Nationwide.

Sadler leaving RCR? I'm guessing Ty Dillon will fill that seat.

Anyone going to take a guess as to when Burton and Menard are outed for the grandchildren?

Menard will never be out unless daddy runs out of money. But until that day, no one else will ever drive the Menards' car other than Paul.

Ty won't be moving up; why would u want both Dillons in the same series; there is no contract between Elliott and RCR after the end of the current season; RC admitted that on Twitter @ AMS;

Don't be surprised if Logano splits the 22 in NW; THE 33 Nationwide car always will be a Cup-driven entry and RC already sold off what had been the 33 Cup entry earlier this year

It eventually will happen, so why not? Grandpa said he wants each of them to get 1-2 years of seat time in each minor series before eventually moving to the Cup series.

It is so hard to feel bad for Kyle Busch.

not exactly, then what? have both run in both series just as Edwards/Keselowski, etc, Ty's already doing that now w/ the 51 Nationwide car and Ty's already recommited to Trucks in '13

It was his own fault. I mean seriously, not pitting under caution when you know Gordon will was just dumb. Even if you felt it would end with rain, It wasn't about getting the best finish, it was staying within 10 positions of Jeff. If Busch got 30th and Jeff. 20th that's way better than finishing 2nd and Gordon winning. You were racing 1 car.

Oh well. Being a huge 24 fan and despising Busch, good call kyle!

It is not Kyle's fault really, it is all on Dave Rogers. He makes the deciding call.

Unless I missed something this week where Kyle made the call to try and get the win.

I'm not really following what you are trying to argue.

Nonetheless, I think we can agree on the fact that RCR will look a lot different in few years.

Hopefully Cupcake sticks around.

While this is definitely true, Kyle should have reminded him who he was racing. or maybe discuss before the race, copy everything Jeff does. If he pits, you pit. Unless, of course, he gets in trouble or it is unscheduled.

But this one decision was not only bad, it was an extremely easy decision. They ****ed it up. I'll never understand the logic.
