Wreckin’ RacinDeals

March 8th, 2010

THE 800 POUND GORILLA: You can’t really comment on Sunday’s race without talking about the boneheaded move that Carl Edwards made when he intentionally wrecked a competitor. Edwards basically caused the first wreck by moving down on Keselowski, and then had the gall to blame it on Keselowski. So to get back at him, Edwards, well over 150 laps down, turned right into Keselowski, who was running in the top ten at the time, and caused Keselowski to crash, hitting the top of the car on the outside wall. It’s amazing that Keselowski wasn’t seriously injured or killed. At the very least, NASCAR needs to give Edwards the weekend of Bristol off so he can think about what he did.

LAPS-DOWN DRIVERS: That brings up another point: should a driver who can no longer make up any laps be allowed to stay on the track? Edwards premeditated attack on Keselowski would not have been possible if NASCAR had a rule that prevented drivers back on the track if there’s no way they can make up any laps on their next competitor.

AN EXCITING FINISH (NOT): Edwards also robbed the fans of an exciting finish in the making. It was evident that Montoya was going to challenge Kurt Busch for the win, but Edwards idiocy quashed that.

HEY, JACK, HERE’S THE BILL FOR MY CAR: Penske and the 7 or so teams who wrecked after the first green/white/checkers should send Jack Roush and Carl Edwards the bill for the repair of their cars.

EXCITEMENT: The Atlanta race was definitely better than the Las Vegas race. While a leader would get out ahead by a couple of seconds, he couldn’t stay there.  The cars behind would gradually reel him in, and pretty soon there was a challenge for the lead.

BRISTOL: Bristol is up next, and I’m probably in the minority on this when I say that I’m not really looking forward to it. I’m not sure why people think the Bristol races are so great. NASCAR is starting way too many cars for that size track. Maybe there’ll be a dozen start-and-parkers who’ll pull off after a couple of laps.
