Cup race was good (that's the only one I saw); the ending was a little drab, but what can you do. As for Kenseth, he made a bad mistake that cost him and Tony a chance at the win, and he deserved Tony's helmet toss. It would be a different story if Tony wrecked Matt afterwords in the race or did anything more to hurt Kenseth's day, but it really was too early to be racing that aggressively on Matt's part.

Bristol is always an enjoyable race.

Looking forward to Richmond in two weeks. Sitting in Row 8 to the right of start/finish line.

Been watching NASCAR since the early 90's (when I was old enough to understand what was going on). Well never forget the race Dale Sr died. And I'll be honest, I'm a die hard Gordon fan but also cheer for Edwards (bummed neither are doing so hot this season).

Glad I saw this thread

No what Tony deserves is a fine from NASCAR. That is totally uncalled for. There is no reason to throw any piece of equipment. No matter who's fault it was. He made himself look like an a$$. If they can fine a driver for getting a microphone shoved in their face seconds after they get out of the car and say something wrong or offensive, then a fine should be taken against helmet throwing.

nope. fans want action. so nascar wont do anything about it. like with the watkins glen race. caution should have been thrown and brad should have won (which my respect for him grows the more i see him race). nascar wanted to put on a show. which they did. and ambrose kicked butt!

but anyways. point is, if the fans don't get what they want, they will get fined. it's that simple. if a driver shoves a camera or mic away then the fans cant hear what they want.

I started this thread and glad to see it's picking up. I'm a huge Nascar fan and go to 2-3 races a year. Martinsville or Richmond and Bistol of course are next year.

As far as Bristol, it was an awesome race this year! I was the in row 1 of the Dale Sr section (end of turn 2); I take my dad every year & been going since 2008. The racing, emotion, action and it just being Bristol made it 200% better than the last year.

As far as Smoke throwing his helmet at Kenseth, he had it coming. Kenseth gave Tony no room what so ever, they only had 150-175 laps left when the wreck happened and that was stupid on Matt's part to wreck both cars. Smoke turning and pumping his fist in the air at the crowd was just awesome, but his interview afterwards saying "I'm going to wreck Matt every chance I get... Every chance I get" was even better!

Tonight's race at Atlanta should be a good one. I think Dale Jr is due for a win. As far as the wildcard drivers, Gordon got the best shot at winning tonight.

Post up who you think will win.

My prerace pick for Atlanta is the "Biff" I also think Jeff Gordan has a good chance to win if he stays out of other peoples trouble. Should be a fun race.
