I might become a Stewart fan after he made the bonehead move and took out half the field,handing the win to Kennseth in a FORD!![bootyshak I think smoke must have bumped his head when he went upside down in the wreck. In his interview and the reporter asked him if he was ok, he said "I'm a finely tuned athlete,I've got a really strenuous work out regimen" baahahaaaa....If that's the case,then I'm in perfect shape!!

That a beautiful picture, though. The 48 car with a crumpled hood.

It is a shame, however, that all those cars got damaged in the last half lap.

What a massive wreck & shitty end to a good race.

Smoke is a racer first & foremost and was racing for the lead, out alone all by himself. Michael Waltrip should have lifted, what the hell is he even doing on the track anyway. I'm pretty sure Tony was being sarcastic...

stewart only tried to get in front of waltrip because waltrip CLEARLY had a good run to the lead and could have possibly won. he didn't cause the wreck and i'm happy he didn't lift. even stewart blamed himself. i dont even think it was his fault. it was just racing

just too many cars in the moving parking lot at the same time

Yeah he took the blame for it and apologized. Like you said it's racing and Talladega at that. Everyone knew it was comming specially with a GWC.

Shitty for Bowyer!
Kurt Bush's interview was prolly the best & most honest interview I've ever heard from him.

Jr giving Johnson a ride was pretty funny!

If they hadn't run out of fuel, they would have been alright. They aren't in bad shape, however, even with the poorer finish. At least they were still very competitive compared to the 48 and have a solid shot of holding them off for the championship. Good race.

Man I just hope "5-time" doesn't make it "6-time". I'm not a fan of his in anyway but you HAVE to respect & acknowledge he's a class act on the track & off.

I'm pulling for Denny Hamlin even though I hate Toyota! It's a shame IMPO that 1 of the big 3, "Dodge" is leaving (even though there really not an American car company anymore bc their 60% Italian owned).

I'll be at Martinsville in 2 weeks for my 1st chase race, can't frickin wait!!! Anyone else going? If you live somewhat close to the track they have plenty of tickets still and the most exspensive is $79, just an FYI...

Bummer about Penske giving Hornish the boot & he's going good too. Kurt Bush didn't do to good in his new Furniture row 78 ride. I guess getting use to it. Martinsville seems like it would be a great race to see for the fan's= being a fish bowl. I'd love to see the Kansas & Texas races= two great tracks. Maybe Kyle Bush can grab a win.
