    I hate when a race does not finish. Too many races are settle at the very end of the race. I feel like I was ripped off/ cheated. Spent all that time watching the race just to see it given away.

    Did you even follow why he split with DEI? The bitch wouldn't even let him keep his number. She's in it for the money...plain as day.

    Just so you know and maybe you do, the number is not owned by Dale Jr. even though he acts that way.

    Well, obviously he doesnt own his number as he wouldve took it with him if he did. But it wouldnt have killed her to let him keep it where he was going.

    So what is your solution? There is no way NASCAR can run a high speed oval in the rain. It simply is not safe and you are guaranteed to damage a lot of equipment. Tell the fans to leave and run the next day...or the next day...in front of empty stands?

    He whines and had almost as many excuses as Jr. If I remember correctly he had hit debris on the track and blamed Goodyear. If thats true he should learn to keep his big fat mouth shut :D Ole Tony did surprise me when I heard a short interview after the race, he didn't squeal.
    I am also a Stewart Fan and he doesn't whine he tells the truth. Goodyear tires suck butt and most race drivers know this. They area huge sponsor and he called them out. That isn't whining as far as I am concerned.

    Sure it is. And NOW is not the time to be pissing off sponsors. There are much better ways to voice your displeaure with something to the powers that be and whining in front of a TV camera is not the way to go. I'm pretty sure there are not a lot of tire Mfgs. (even Hoosier) clamoring to spend lots of money, time and research for NASCAR. He needs to be glad they are there at all.

    The race could have finished if they waited about 5 more minutes for it to stop raining. I know cause I was there. It was dry out before we got to the car to go to our hotel.

    Dale Jr. totally caused that wreck. He was mad cause Vickers blocked just like Kyle Busch did to Martin earlier in the race and instead of letting off the gas and getting back in line he kept his foot in it an and spun Vickers at the front of the field on purpose. He was touching Vickers rear Quarter panel for about 3 seconds before he turned up into him to finish the job.

    He should have been penalized for the mishap but Earnhardt's get away with most of there crap. And I was a Sr fan but the guy handled the car much better than Jr ever will.

    And as far as the missed pit goes. He got confused by the signsand they never counted him down for his stop. He isn't a horrible driver but his crew absolutely sucks.

    Glad I was down all weekend and saw the Trucks and Nationwide or I would have been ticked off. It costs a small fortune to get tickets, get there, stay there and come home. If they would just start the race earlier again we wouldn't have had any problems.

    I say we agree to disagree. And the last time he said something about Goodyear was almost 2 years ago. He is an owner now so he will definatley be more political. I will even laugh at it when it happens.

    They did that before, and most of the fans skipped work and showed up.

    Just LAST year as a matter of fact....right here in CA where they are going next and most likely will encounter rain....

    It is a bit different when your next venue is only 225 miles away (Fontana to Las Vegas) vs 2,500 miles away (Daytona to Fontana). It takes quite a bit to move all the gear across the country and a days delay just might not be workable.
