NASCAR itself did not want to levy ANY penalties against anyone! Apparently, they saw the replay without the clouded vision of a legion of whiny fans.
NASCAR drew the proverbial line in the sand yesterday that separates “boys being boys” from “boys behaving badly.”
Carl Edwards received a $25,000 fine and a loss of 60 Nationwide Series driver points following on-track retaliation against Brad Keselowski at Gateway.
Matt Kenseth opened the 2009 season with back-to-back wins and looked to be on the road to a second Cup championship. However, he hasn’t won since.
Does any fan out there really want to green light NASCAR, under any circumstance, to made a judgment call based on their collective wisdom?
I, like every person tuned into Saturday night’s Nationwide Series event at Gateway, had a wide range of emotions as Carl Edwards battled Brad Keselowski.
After battling for the lead for nearly the entire 250 miles on Saturday at Gateway, Brad Keselowski and Carl Edwards were again duking it out up front.
After a blackout at Gateway forced the postponement of Friday’s CampingWorld.com 200, it was Kevin Harvick who came out victorious.
After the race, Brad Keselowski’s father claimed that Carl Edwards “tried to kill my boy, first at Talladega and now here.”
One of the most positive storylines to come out of Chicago was the crowd in the grandstands on Friday night.
“Same old Daytona, cars moving around and bouncing around and handling came into play and you saw a lot of passing and shuffling…”
So what can we learn from 110 laps of playing the feud at Sonoma? They say only the strong survive, but in this case strong gets replaced with strongarm.
