Caution Flags

Wed Jul 06, 2011 12:08 pm

Nascar needs to stop with the BS caution's
The caution flag for Jeff Gordon's spin was BS he saved the car ,no debris ,on flat tires.
Now there are about 15 or more wrecked cars that there was no need for.
There was a great battle going on at the front of the field for the lead.
I was enjoying watching the race until the caution.
I would almost bet that if JJ or JG where fighting for the lead and someone like Martin Truex Jr spun out and saved it there would not have been a caution.
Throwing the caution flag just to tighten up the field need to stop.

Well part of me would have to say yes because Ryan was out front.
A single car spin at 200 is not as bad as what the caution caused.
Instead of 1 car out of contention it took out at lease 15.
If safety was first and for most then they would not have thrown the caution.
That caution was for ratings not for safety.

Awe, come on Oldtimmer . you wouldn't want one of Nascars poster boys to finish out of the top 10 at Daytona. It just locked in his restart position. The #### with everyone else. j/m/o

And you're just saying he said that cause it would have screwed Gordon if there was no yellow.

well jj finished 19th or 20th so that blows yet another paranoid conspiracy out the window ;)
just because ryan self destructs on plate tracks, dont blame other drivers who finish better than him.
