Nationwide Saturday Night did not have the normal amount of Cup drivers. Must have went on vacation. There was 3 Kevin Harvick , Carl Edwards and Brad K. that are top line Cup drivers. Kevin basically took himself out trying to push the wall down which left our favorite drivers who seam to have a past.
You know the race had to come down to them. Brad gave Carl a little rub and backed off and let Carl gather it in. Then went hard at it. Announcers half way tried to say they Carl had thought he was clear of Brad and tried to do a crossover pass. Hmmmm Brad was right there in front of him , do you need a spotter to tell you the car in front of you is clear? Maybe you do and if someone has experience please let me know if I am wrong. End result Brad K hit the wall and took out a allot of cars because there is not much room at gateway between the walls.
Now I am not gonna takes sides on this one .... ok Carl needs glasses but other than that those 2 guys walk away and go to their Cup cars. I will say there was at least 3 totalled Nationwide cars and few more with good damage. It is one thing to lose a car because of your own driving but the 2 bozos do not need extra practise for their Cup teams in the Nationwide series. They are established drivers and in the end get too walk away with pockets full of cash.
What about ..... collateral damage?
Some of those teams are on shoe string budgets , are Brad K and Carl gonna walk over give them cash to replace the cars they wrecked?
Is this gonna be a nail in the coffin of Cup drivers running Nationwide?
Brad K and Carl are running 1 , 2 in the series.
They are using the Nationwide series as their own sandbox to carry on and screw everyone else.
Personally I think they need to take it outside of the track.
Carl was not even a little bit apologetic afterwards and basically said Brad K rubbed him earlier and could not let Brad K win.
In interviews afterwards I am not sure if it was Brad K's father , owner or crew chief but he was pretty worked up and was saying he was gonna put on a fire suit and go out on the track and finish it because he was not gonna let Carl kill his boy.
Makes for great TV and makes viewers want to see the race but ....... this seams to be a escalating war and NASCAR might regret their
let the boys race"
If someone does get hurt who is to blame?
Owners for not stepping in?
What about the small teams losing out equipment and not having the ability to continue to run because of the boys playing?
Round 3 or 4 next ... lost track of where we were.
