Brad Keselowski feels terrible, he didn't want to ruin Kyle's day at Watkins Glen, he said it was the oil on the track that caused him to hit Kyle, yes folks the oil, is all about the oil my friends.

Did you buy that story, well folks,I don't.

Here is his quote after this weeks Nationwide race "I didn't pull any aggressive moves out of the arsenal, that's intentional, obviously. I don't need to start any trouble over here in this series when I've got the Chase coming around"

Interesting quote.

He couldn't of made it any clearer, big K was going to come out rubbing and bumping Sunday  at Watkins Glen, and he did, unfortunately he poked the wrong bear, Kyle Busch.

Mr. Keselowski also said he was using Saturday's Nationwide race to bank up -nice-guy points..- that makes me smile because I'm sure there isn't one NASCAR fan who believes he's gained enough good will vouchers to stop any driver from delivering payback.

Can you imagine Edwards or the Busch brothers saying- Oh you go ahead Brad buddy I'll give you some room- that is not going to happen, Brad has too many skeletons in the closet.

If you're a race fan you understand drivers are like elephants THEY NEVER FORGET, I'm afraid Mr. Keselowski will have a miserable chase.

Mr. Keselowski will be trying to win a championship while racing against a heard of elephants who will be looking for an opportunity to ruin his day.

Can we agree on that.

The kid is great driver, but he'll learn that in NASCAR is best to be careful with others people's money(race cars) and at times is best to keep ones mouth shut.

I'm just a fan but I understand that concept, Mr. Keselowski will be taken to school this year, the shame of it is that it will be during the chase.

As always this is just a fans opinion and from what I understand everybody has one and I thank God for that.

Enough said.

Keselowski isn't the only one that blamed oil on the track. Kyle Busch's crew chief said there was oil. Marcos Ambrose said it was oil. Dale Earnhardt Jr said there was oil. Jeff Gordon says there was oil.

They even had video footage of Bobby Labonte's motor blowing up not far ahead of the leader. How else did Keselowski and ambrose catch Busch when he had a big lead and they were side by side?

The track was extremely slick according to all drivers interviewed.

A broken clock is right twice a day...Brad Keselowski straight out wrecked that man...Kyle Busch had the inside position, and had closed the door...the rule is, if I am to your door it is not dirty. I really liked Brad Keselowski, but that was very dirty move...Expect payback while he is running for a Championship in the Chase...NASCAR blew this one...I bet you if Tony Stewart or Jimmy Johnson had been in the lead, they would have thrown a yellow flag for oil.

Only a Kyle Busch fan would that that was intentional. Maybe Brad was trying to move him out of the way, but Keselowski had Ambrose right on his bumper. Kyle had a big lead and somehow Brad and Marcos caught up while racing side by side. It was either bump Kyle or lose the position to Marcos. If Brad wanted to wreck Kyle, he wouldn't have done it where there was a wall there, and he wouldn't have tore up his own car in the process.

The track was slick, it's hard to stop on a slick track. Ask Dale Jr and Jeff Gordon about the track conditions.

Kyle Busch at the moment would be the only driver that would have a problem with Brad, and it would be an unjust problem.

Kyle Busch has been walking a tight rope all season with NASCAR and after last season's run in with Ron Hornaday, he has a short leash with NASCAR. If they find out he intentionally wrecks a Chase driver during the Chase for something that happened weeks ago, that wasn't even intentional, smart money says NASCAR skips the probation and automatically suspends him a race.

Brad will be a cup champion one day, there is no dought about that but not this year ...he will have to pipe down and quit punting ....he has lots of paybacks outhere.....those need to be cashed in before he can win a championship...

True, there was oil but I just looked at the replay ,that car did not slide more than usual, Brad just wanted the spot and he rubbed 18 to get it........most driver would give up the pass attempt and try it again..Brad just got agressive...those drivers know whats going to happen when one makes a move like that, oil or no oil....a punt....

Only a Kyle Busch hater would not believe what his eyes had just shown him...Bobby Labonte drove for a half of a lap dropping oil on the track and Kyle Busch just happened to be the first one it, or nobody would have came close to him, he had over a 200 foot lead before he started slipping. The third time he slid, he beat Brad Keselowski to the preferred groove and Brad Keselowski dumped him. The eye in the sky does not lie...Labonte drove around in the groove for over half a lap dropping oil, and NASCAR should have thrown out the yellow flag. I am a fan of racing, and watched it live on TV, Brad Keselowski just straight dumped him...and then lied about it...he told ESPN that the 18 was dumping oil on the track...which was not true, and if it was that obvious, they should have thrown a yellow flag out.ENOUGH SAID

I agree a yellow flag should have been thrown, but it wasn't. Kyle Busch was going much slower than Brad and Brad closed in on him. There was a lot of oil on the track, Brad was getting some on his windshield, the only driver ahead of him was Kyle Busch, it's not far off to assume that Brad really though the oil was coming from Kyle.

Watch the replays, Kyle was going much slower than Brad and Marcos, and at that position, it was either bump a slower Kyle or lose the position to Ambrose. It was nothing more than a racing accident. I also watched the race live, and in typical Kyle Busch fashion, he ran off crying because things didn't go his way.

Kyle Busch has a lot to prove before any non Kyle fan or NASCAR is going to take his side on anything. He's burned so many bridges, he drove off when Harvick was confronting him, he got beat up by a 65 year old man, and that whole Ron Ho0rnaday thing was the most disgraceful thing to happen in NASCAR history.

It was a racing accident, and if Kyle Busch retaliates, it will be before the Chase, and NASCAR will crack down hard on him.


And he's not the smartest driver out there. In the heat of the moment, he usually tells on himself. Notice he couldn't come up with an excuse for the Ron Hornaday deal.

Kyle Busch only slowed up when he hit the oil multiple times.

Brad and Marcos hit it too. So did Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt Jr.

If positions were reversed and the 18 hit the 2 everyone would be calling it a brilliant move, just like they were calling the idiot move Kyle made on the restart. It's a racing incident plain and simple, oil or no oil.

Maybe Brad should be complaining like all the Kyle fans, the oil cost him the win too. But you know what, Brad climbed from the car congratulated the 9 team and did his interview with a smile on his face. Brad could have just stormed off making no comments/ignoring the media but no he found the good of the situation and did one heck of an interview considering the circumstances.

QUOTE(#17):

First man through the oil gets it the worst...Payback will be sweet...Just like Edwards got on Bad Brad...I hope this time he does not flip...Michigan is bad fast...lol

Carl and Brad are now very good friends, but if Kyle were to pay Brad back for a racing accident, Kyle would be in the wrong just like Carl was.

Carl is just as bad as Kyle Busch but doesn't get half the hate.

There were 4 wrecks involving Brad and Carl.

The Talladega wreck, Carl came down on Brad trying to block when it was too late.

Then Carl blatently wreck Brad at the end of a Busch race, destroying many cars of low budget teams.

Then at the Atlanta race, early on, Carl one again trys to block Brad when it was too late.

Then later on, he flipped Brad.

So the Carl-Brad feud involved Carl wrecking himself twice and him wrecking Brad twice.

Brad dumped Kyle on the last lap...the film does not lie...he hit him in the right rear quarter panel...This will not stand in Kyle's eye...you need to expect one of those racing deals

If a driver owes another driver payback after every spinout, then doesn't pretty much every driver on the circuit owe Kyle payback? I'm sure Brad already owed Kyle one. Plus, remember the last two times Kyle paid someone back?

The last one, he was suspended a race for plowing Ron Hornaday into the wall under caution.

The one before that, he was embarrassed by Kevin Harvick on pit road at Darlington. Ran off with his tail tucked between his legs, and this lead to getting his **** kicked by a 65 year old Richard Childress.

It's in Kyle's best interest to avoid confrontations, because it's clear that Kyle is afraid to fight.
