This is a simple rule, If someone races you hard you race them back the same way, if someone wrecks you while racing hard you may get wrecked in pay-back.
That is how it works ! and yet some fans and media folks want to make Juan Pablo the villain of the Saturday night race .
Just in case you haven't heard about it, let me give you a brief summary of the incident.
Juan Pablo Montoya was having a great race until Newman decided to hit him and send him against the wall, destroying his car and his day, after multiple repairs the #42 car went several laps down ruining a potential top five.
Juan Pablo Montoya then embarked in a mission (with full support from JPM tweeter fans) to catch up with Newman and punt him, he accomplished the mission to the delight of his fans.
As always all the haters started their Montoya bashing for doing what most of those hypocrites say they love "good aggressive short track racing"
I now understand that "rubbing is racing" but in NASCAR it all depends on who is doing the rubbing.
I'm not going to get into all kinds of examples but if you're a NASCAR fan you know exactly what I'm talking about.
