This is what racing use to be and bettween Ambrose,BK and Kyle and i didn't hear an interview with Kyle but neither Marcos or BK were crying about it.They thought it was fun and i sure as heck did to,congrads to them for being racers and even more so for Marcos for the win! :D BTW,Tony was very impressive too,i think the oil is what ruined his day,i'd of loved to see him race against BK to see how that would have turned out.


Nope, oil was from Nemechek's car.. He lost engine two or three laps to end..


Nope.....Bobby LaBonte's car started spewin' the oil

TS put a wheel in the grass on that turn before he spun out. Sucks, but it happens.

I know Stewart doesn't like to complain, but are we seeing a pattern here with his pit crew making mistakes that cost track position? Watkins Glen last weekend with the gun, slow pits in Richmond back in April, and July at Daytona when a rear window change pre race knocked loose another system and cost the team points and starting position. It's frustrating to watch a great driver get slowed down because of mistakes in the pit box and in the garage.

On Tony's scanner after the race he blammed himself for what happened. If he hadn't spun out I believe he would have caught Brad.

I would much rather see the 14 wreck himself pushing hard for the win than laying back. Wins are all that matter at this point since his spot in the Chase is secure.
