Default Dale Jr's post race comments

I wonder how Nascar felt about their top star calling them out for the use of the late race bogus debris yellow. I wonder if they will hold him from practicing at Atlanta and fine him for no reason whatsoever. (ala Tony Stewart after Stewart called out Nascar after Phoenix)

Jr got out of the car and typical Jr fashion just spoke off the cuff about how he had a long run car but he should have known better cuz no matter what there will be late cautions to make the race "exciting."

Basically, someone takes a remark and tries to brew up some controversy as is the case. I take nothing from it. Guys wrecked late. Normally if your going to get yellows, they are going to be late cuz guys are racing harder for every spot.

I blame TV for not doing their due dilligence when "phantom" debris cautions occur...NASCAR honestly is caught between a rock and a hard place in the safety aspect. They can never seem to do any right by anyone.

Anyways, lets hope NASCAR busts their ASS to get qualifying in somehow. Its pathetic they care more about their precious chase drivers starting up front then actually having a qualifying session.

Nascar catches themselves between a rock and a hard place? Your kidding me right? When Nascar will throw a yellow for a piece of clear cigarette wrapping but not for a 16 car wreck at the end of the Daytona 500, they have aboslutly no right whatsoever to play the "well your damned if you do, damned if you dont" attitude.

Im torn about the qualifying deal. Honestly I 100% believe the go or go home guys should get to qualify no matter what then line up 36th-43rd. In this economy Nascar would be doing everything in their power to encourage these teams to stay in the sport. Give them every chance possible. If your going to have a separate gaurantee spot rule for one group, you can have a different set of rules for the others.

i agree to an extent about the GOGH'ers. I think they should get another shot the day after qualifying to get them in, if it still rains out, then thats the way the cookie crumbles. its 20 minutes out of NASCAR's precious schedule. It CAN be done.

Your still making an opinion. Sometimes its just what the tv camera catches and may not be the real reason for the caution. Some things look different depending on angle, etc.

If your so good at spotting real debris then submit an application to NASCAR. Otherwise dont second guess their every move. Trying to have a discussion about the good/bad/needs improvement section is great but when you always have criticism about their every decision and sink to the level of calling them corrupt every chance you get (its implied at the very least) then you should probably re-evaluate why you post here. Im not gonna call you a troll or say you have to drink the kool-aid...but there are at the very least 2 sides to a discussion and sometimes (learned from experience) you have an initial reaction to something thats negative but if you stop and think about things, while you still may disagree why its done the way its done you see the logic behind a decision.

NASCAR carries alot of liability for these drivers, you have to imagine that since Daytona 2001 that the insurance carrier as well as the garage area has cried safety since clearly no one is invincible. Sometimes there are pansy cautions, but its not as if there are ones every single race, or 5 in a row.

It would probably be up to your definition of the word corrupt to determine if I do consider them corrupt. Are they incompetitent? Absolutly. The Talladega fiasco proved they dont know theyre head from anything else thats going on. Do they make decisions based on how much money they can make, and not whats best for the fans? Absolutly 100%. Do they put the "show" ahead of actual compeition? 100% yes. Do they put the "show" ahead of safety? Absoutly 100% yes. Do I think they fix races for certain drivers? No, I dont see how you could do that. But they have proven that they are more than capable of bending rules, throwing cautions, and even disregarding their own mandates whenever the situation suited them. Does that make them corrupt? In a way I think you could make an argument that it does.

Nascar will hide like cowards behind the whole "Saftey" perogative until theyre blue in the face, but until they can come up with some reasonable explanation as to why the they kept the yellow flag in their pocket for the end of the Daytona 500 in 2007, Im not buying it in any way.

As far as bogus debris yellows and it being just my opinion. I know some people dont buy it, but the drivers do. Too many people think it happens for it not to be happening. Tony Stewart didnt go on a rampage last year about Nascar being like wrestling for no reason. The bogus yellow is 100% wrong to have. And thats another argument of the officals influencing how these races are run.
