Stop running Chase and Harvick dust up into the ground. It happened,its
Bristol. Be real writers and find new news to write about instead of repeating over and over old news. We all saw it and heard it and so let it go.


Two drivers getting mad at each other one time, or a few times isn’t a feud. A feud is when two drivers develop a deep personal dislike for each other that spills out onto the track. Examples are Earnhardt & Bodine, LaJoie & Jones, and Allison & Petty. It’s irritating that every argument is called a feud. Feuds transcend mere arguments or fights. 


When Mike Waltrips driver aided another team mate, NASCAR in effect put Mikey out of business. I very much doubt Hendrick will even get a phone call.
I saw the race and every time Kevin got close to passing Elliott would run him down to the line. The last time Harvick didn’t give way


Imagine Curtis Turner, Lee Petty or Buck Baker in that situation? Where’s Jimmy Spencer when we need him?

The real important question is, what happened to Jimmie Johns, Freaky Fast sponsorship on Harvick’s Subway car? What’s the story on that? Is he going to have Pabst Blue Ribbon next week instead of Busch Beer?

I’ve been wondering about the Jimmie johns vs Subway sponsorship too. I can’t seeing either sponsor being OK with the other being on Harvick’s car.
