Yea MJ. Ryan being aggressive never pays off for him. Other drivers can turn and burn at ease but Newman........just doesn't have that kind of luck!michaeljohn wrote:well i wasnt too thrilled with ryan dumping kyle, so he got the finished he deserved, ryan is better than that.

I will always "shoot you straight" on this blog racer1!racer1 wrote:Appreciate the honesty here admitting Ryan made a mistake putting himself out of the race like the other SHR driver. The difference is if I might suggest--the first SHR driver to take herself out is actually fairly new to Cup and Nascar in general and can be called a dumb move but still part of a learning curve--but still--dumb. However Ryan is a very experienced driver and surprising to see Ryan make a mistake like that as he rarely does, but all drivers do it at some point when their patience runs out. All in all a bad day for SHR but a 5th for Tony isnt bad but wont help him much in the chase.

Then during several Cautions I guess brad wasnt keeping up with traffic turning offf his car & ryan the 56 & other teams were complaining he wasnt keeping up & was asking Nascar to do something about it. Well during ryans last caution he told his spotter to tell nascar to do something about the 2 car or he would just put him in the wall. he said I can control this situation. Where they came back & told Ryan that nascar warned the 2 car if he continues it would cost him a lap. But Ryan wouldnt let the 2 car back in line until nascar ordered Ryan to do so. Then when they went green Kyle started his blocking routine & after the 2nd major block, Ryan dumped him. I asked the chatroom if Tony was driving Ryans car LOL.
I wish Ryan didnt dump him, but he did. It is just rare to see Ryan be like that. The last time I can remember Ryan dumping someone on purpose was JPM in JPM's rookie year. I dont know what got into him, but he was pretty angry during the race. Even after they wrecked he told his spotter "Hey Jimmy tell the 18 he is also loose in the center"
Funny thing is Ryan had an easy top 5 going. TG was doing a decent job. the car was tight but still very fast. Ryan was very comfortable in the car. Think it was funny that TG's last race with Ryan was probably his best. I really had no complaints about TG this race. Figures that would be the race Ryan goes all Tony stewart on someone LOL.
As far as I could tell Ryans attitude didnt start until the 5 car drove him down to the grass. Then he got real fiesty.
I didnt want to see it happen, even though I was mad that kyle was blocking even though he knew he was too loose to be doing that crap. It seems a lot of cars drive Ryan harder & block him where they dont do it to others. So eventually I guess I knew it would come, but it wont help ryan any. One thing I know is Tony never backs Ryan up it seems, but if it is brought up to him, he better stay consistent on his thoughts on blocking & back Ryan up.
Leave it to his fans to be upset with him.
