    i got one question for everyone.

    How in the world do you go to fast in nascar. I didnt know they had a set speed limit for everyone to go.

    i miss the good ol days when you come down the pits as fast as you want.

    Juan you got robbed. I dont see how anyone could be speeding in nascar. They have a license to go fast.

    your suppose to go fast. They have all the rules. you cant tap, you cant go this fast. you cant go below the yellow line at superspeedways.

    wow nascar. Your little yellow line rule has caused more crashes then when they went below it ha ha, the thing your trying to prevent

    now everybody is speeding on pit road.

    I hate Jimmie Johnson with a passion. It seems he wins everything all the time. I like to see different drivers win every once in a while. Montoya should have won the race fair and square if he didn't screw it up by getting a little too excited going down pit road.
    I hate when people hate someone just because they're good :rolleyes:
    I mean, I understand where you're coming from, but it's up to the other teams to be as good as he is. Whatever he and Knaus are doing, the other teams should be doing too. It's just so rare for two people to click as well as Johnson and Knaus has, and I think it's pretty awesome to watch the most dominant team in NASCAR since Petty was racing ;)

    ^ Ahh give him a break. He dominated only to have that happen. Besides it sounds like according to his tackometer (sp?) he wasn't speeding, which may mean the team didn't set it right or something.

    And everyone thinks it's all Johnson, wtf? It is at least 50% Chad Knaus. He adjusts the car and gets it perfect at the end. Johnson just has to explain what's wrong with the car, and let Knaus work his magic. If it was Johnson he wouldn't have totally sucked in Nationwide.
    Yeah, that's really unfortunate for Montoya. He's one of my favorites because he was in F1 right when I started watching, and he just had that rockstar look. It totally contrasted most of the other guys in F1 so I kinda started following him. It's awesome to see him doing so well in a series that is so different from the series he's raced all his life too.

    Well, Johnson didn't completely suck in Nationwide. He wasn't dominant, but he was a frontrunner a lot of the time. I just don't get all the Johnson hate :-\

    Rofl I don't hate Johnson, I just don't think Chad Knaus gets enough credit. He does more during the race than Johnson imo. BTW today was a great race and I'll update the op after I go on a run.

    I hate Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon, Kyle Busch, and Tony Stewart. Not because they win all the time. But Because they are annoying, their personality's suck.

    Agree on that one and that one only. Stewart's changed, Gordon never wins anymore, Johnson's my driver, Kyle Busch is my worst enemy.

    That pretty much was his excuse every time. God Forbid it was actually his fault.

    Updated op is updated. 'Grats to Hamlin on the emotional win. He deserved it.

    Nice for Hamlin to win today at Pocono, I used to go to the 2 races at Pocono back in the day, that time has passed along with my interest in nascar. I remember my uncle got bad sunburn from sitting on those bleachers for 4 hours. My ass was killing me too. You'd think they'd have better seating for an event like nascar.

    i can only imagine what hamlin was going through in that car. being able to perform like that after losing a family member had to be very emotional and rewarding. i am a smoke fan but there couldnt have been a better winner than the 11 car. good job denny. the dude is a beast at pocono

    Because having a decent amount of Sprint Cup wins in 4-5 years means you suck. Not liking someone /=/ they suck. Kyle Busch is my worst enemy but I still recognize that he is probably the most talented driver on the circuit.

    Also, speaking of Kyle, he's butthurt that Amborse beat him in Nationwide. Expect a bunch of whining and crying from him tomorrow. Man, I love road course racing, some of my favorite races.

    Can you have the least consideration for somebody who just won a race after a long race winless streak and doing so after just losing his grandmother? That's low dude...

    Yeah Ambrose was my hero. He raced Busch just like Busch would've raced him. I'm more curious to see Robby Gordon and Joey Logano. Robby wrecked himself trying to wreck Logano, then took Logano out and NASCAR gave him the freaking lucky dog on the same caution! He ended up in like 14th while Logano was out of the race. I think it's bull**** and hope Logano takes him out later today.

    Also, how about a new Earnhardt? Jeffrey Earnhardt finished 24th in his first start. He was in the top 20 on the last lap but the wreck that occured affected him somehow. I never saw exactly how.

    I'm hopeful that this one has talent. They put Junior in a Hendrick car and he's still a bum.

    Brian Vickers takes home the checkered flag at Michigan. That was a fun race, quickly becoming one of my favorite race tracks.

    Good job to Vickers. He kinda used Johnson tbh. Made him speed up and burn out and used him to draft and save fuel....

    Updating the op now. Kyle Busch is 15th in points ftmfw!

    I'm so happy that Montoya is doing so well this year. Today wasn't a great finish for him, but he can maintain this and make the Chase. Then he needs to turn it on and win a title already! I doubt he'll do it this year with all the competition, but that won't stop me from hoping... If he can't pull it off, I hope Johnson pulls off the unprecedented 4-in-a-row. :D

    I'm kind of hoping Stewart seals the deal with his new team, just because I think it would be neat.

    By the way, for anyone paying attention to the Talladega winner, Brad Keselowski, he wats to run in the sprint cup series next year, and stay with Hendrick. The issue? Hendrick's kinda off limits, except for one option. Hendrick Motorsports has 4 drivers, Stewart-Haas has no plans to add another team next year, and JR Motorsports isn't going cup yet. Therefore, the only Hendrick affiliated option would be to drive the #09 Micosukee car owned by James Finch, the same one he won with at Talladega. What he'll actually do, I don't know.

    saving fuel and road courses are about the only thing jj isnt good at. i think id rather be involved in an accident on the first lap than run out of gas while leading with a couple laps to go. that has to suck.

    jimmie was quick to remember vickers wrecking him and jr at talladega for his first win. i found the jab he threw out in the post race interview funny. congrats brian on your first win..i mean second win

    go smoke

    I thought(and hoped) Jr. Would Win yesterday, after Johnson ran out of fuel, I was positive Gordon and Vickers would to.

    I hope JR never wins. It just proves how much of a bum he is.

    They put him in the top equipment in NASCAR and he still can't win. He's always been an untalented hick with a prestigious last name.

    The Past 2 or 3 years he hasn't been all that great, but the thing is, his first few years he was a very good, consistent driver.

    Jr. was good until he lost Tony Eury Sr. as a crew chief and became so terribly overhyped. I still think Tony Eury Sr. may be the best crew chief in NASCAR, or 2nd to Chad Knaus.
