Awww, poor baby!


Even after Jr. team messed up, AND he had to come down pit road, AND the 51 followed him down pit road, AND just a few laps before Jr. was inevitably going to be lapped, the Hendrick affiliated #51 blows an engine to bring out the first caution, AND Jr. fought back to the front, AND NASCAR waved off the first attempt like they should not have to give Jr. another shot, AND after NASCAR gave him that second shot and he STILL lost, I guess that was NASCAR's fault for not penalizing Harvick, another Hendrick affiliated car.

Some highlights from my weekend!! Here are the videos for my 2 laps at Talladega!

The two arrows.. one is on a friend of mines '72 Challenger, and the arrow to the right of my car. My car is behind an orange Torino and in front of the only GM in the group, a Camaro pace car from a 1969 Camaro.



My car is hte one iwth the trunk open, I was helping hte David Pearson car and its carb adjustments. My Torino is the one with an open trunk, and the car beside me has a hood open.

It has nothing to do with Jr. Sure, I would have liked him to win that. But Harvick cheated 3 times in that race. He got caught illegal pre-race, than was allowed out on the track with a car that couldn't maintain minimum speed, then he went on to intentionally wreck half the field. And they said he did nothing wrong. Not even a probation or warning. That is an insult to my intelligence. A penalty to Harvick would not have put Jr back in, but letting Harvick steal the day at the expense of everyone else is not right. I'd be ashamed to call myself a fan of NASCAR now

As far as I'm concerned, you'll have a hard time convincing me that the Hendrick team didn't cheat and order the 51 to blow his engine to save Jr on lap 120 or so there. Hendrick has a history of this... he started Ken Sharder in the 1995 Hooters 500 and he parked before the race even started, giving Gordon a few laps in case he needed it. This was a sure way to prevent Gordon from finishing 43rd and losing the championship to Dale Earnhardt. Plus, Hendrick is a convicted felon who received a pardon.

What does it all mean? Not all drivers or teams cheat, but all winners cheat. Penske is guilty too. THe year that MWR scandal broke out, Penske had another car slow down and let Logano pass to get into the Chase.

Harvick cheated. He cheated by taking out 15 cars. But Hendrick cheated, Penske cheated, and now you just have a runaway sport where all winners cheat.





Anywho, I guess I'll drop Blaney since he isn't racing and put Almirola back in.

1) Brad Keselowski
2) Joey Logano
3) Aric Almirola
