GJ blocking. Do you think Tony would have had the speed to pass and finish first had Busch not tried to block?

Stewart would have had Johnson behind him while Busch wouldn't have had anyone behind him so yeah, I think Stewart would have had the speed to win.

I think KY could've held off Stewart if he didn't try to block.. but we'll never know. He got hit hard by Kahne and then again by Logano.. he'll be hurtin' in the morning..

Sorry. Badly misworded. I meant "why the reason for the last caution".

And the headlines! (or at least MSN/Fox's). "Stewart causes last lap crash!". Umm, Busch was the one who was trying to block. I think he's the one to blame. And even better than Busch "has declined to comment".

 

I'm glad that Tony won (I'm not biased/a fan. I hardly ever even watch NASCAR). He was leading for the majority of the race and clearly had the best/better car. Had the last restart lost it for him, it would have been unfair.

I'm guessing he was more worried about possible injusries after 3 hard hits. OK I'm guessing the medical personel were since they had to forcehim to the care center.

Ya, they mentioned that and I agree. Probably better for him and for everyone that he doesn't comment. I don't blame him.

That's the media for ya.

Good finish, seems like the leader always wrecks before they get to the finish line on the superspeedways here lately

if it weren't for the last lap, the coke zero 400 was boring, especially if you're like me and rooting for the 24.

Or if you were just trying to watch the race, not a talk show.
