I suppose I will start off with the weekend?s biggest story, which unfortunately overshadows Kurt Busch?s 21st career win. Yes, I do believe Carl Edwards should be suspended one race. That has always been my opinion on over aggressive driving. Given how NASCAR wanted the drivers to have at it, I was shocked when Edwards got parked. I expect him to be docked points, fined and put on probation; the later two I still don?t quite get how that sends a message.
It seems like Kurt has picked off right where he was last year. I figured the loss of Pat Tryson would really hurt this 2 team. It is still early, but he has looked strong in every race in 2010.
What did I like most about the race? The fact that the top four were all owned by a different team.
The pole sitter has failed to lead a single lap in three consecutive races now.
It is interesting how this race has silenced everyone (myself included) about Jimmie Johnson for at least a week.
Paul Menard is 9th in points, not only in Nationwide, but Cup as well. Are we seeing JJ?s new challenger? (kidding, of course)
Gee wiz, I did awful in picking my top ten this week. I only got four out of ten correct. You can see my weekly picks at the new puttyracing.com
Lost in the drama of BK and Carl was the green white checkered mess. It definitely needs some tweaking (I think not counting caution flags as laps might help a little bit), but as I?ve said before, I prefer a green flag finish over one that ends under yellow. It has caused some nasty wrecks, but that?s more the drivers racing hard then anything else. Let me know what you think, I am curious to hear other fans opinions on this topic.
