French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte was beaten by British and Prussian forces in the Battle of Waterloo, it proved to be a defeat that changed world history.

Today at Martinsville might hold the same fate for Brad Keselowski's 2012 NASCAR championship hopes, Brad could face an army headed by El Genaralisimo Kyle Busch.

Brad's has not made many friends this year, Kyle Busch might not be Brad's only concern, the list is too long to mention and it may go as deep as half of the field.

OK folks, half of the field might be bit over the top, maybe just a quarter.

Facts are many drivers are coming into Martinsville with a voucher, a "we owe" if you will, stamped "REDEEMABLE ONLY ON BRAD KESELOWSKI" some folks say NASCAR drivers are not the sharpest tool in the box, I disagree, they do have a great memory, they never forget who bent their fenders.

Martinsville is the perfect place for discrete payback, a good place to commit the perfect crime, if you punt somebody all one needs to say is "hey! rubbing is racing at the paper clip" and wash your hands as Pontius Pilate did at the Crucifixion.

We must agree, that is one heck of a good excuse.

Today might be a bad day for Mr. Keselowski, someone may decide to play bumper cars with him, just racing of course, no harm intended.

Enough said.

Brad did ok today....finished 6th....and even though he dropped to 2nd in the Chase he is only 2 pts behind JJ.....Brad can still catch him.
Didn't appear to be much revenging going on......a few bumps here and there but nothing dramatic.

I didn't see any banging on the blue duece

Brad finished 6th, but Jimmy collected on Montoya today and no surprise, since his list is longer than Kez's.

there wasn't any banging on the #2.....I was referring to bumping in general.

He got banged by #29 and also by #55 ..JJ will win this....is over...

Only surprise with 48 bumping the 42 was how late in the race the 42 was getting lapped

Can you get any dumber?

If anything this was a big statement for Brad. Poor qualifying effort for Brad at a track where passing is tough and track position is critical, and not one of Brad's better tracks, and he manages to take what could have been a very bad day into a solid day. Even though his pit strategy didn't work as planned, it still worked in his favor getting the bonus point.

Jimmie might win the Chase, but Brad is far from out of it.

I'm not giving on Brad quite yet......he can still shake it.

All I can say about that is the 48 better watch it around the 42 the rest of the season. What JJ did was uncalled for especially as the leader trying to lap traffic with a comfortable lead. I have a feeling JJ though he had a tire going down and needed a caution and Montoya was the best patsy at the time.

The Prussian forces under were skillfully used in a play-fake orchestrated, in all likelihood, by Captain William Belichick of the British forces. He is pictured in some historical artwork, standing next to Wellington with a hooded sweatshirt and headphones. Play-action to Bluecher's Prussian columns held Napoleon's Old Guard, his solid and reliable middle linebackers, until it was too late for them to be effective, at which point the combination of Wellington's offensive line and Bluecher's ferocious flank blocking collapsed the interior of Napoleon's defense and led to the winning touchdown.
