Yeah,Yeah and if Brad had spun Carl like he tried to (and don't try to say he wasn't trying) then we wouldn't be talking about "Big Bad Carl" Nobody can say what they were really thinking except to win this race. What happened after the "fender rub" wasn't intentional and wasn't known. The idea that Carl; or any race driver; trying to kill someone is crazy.The fact that no one was really hurt is the main thing and thats all thats gonna change. The accidents will always be there and always have; it's part of racing.

Wasn't it just last year when posters were complaining NASCAR's rules were too strict and they should just let the drivers race ?

I am thinking Edwards is losing any respect he has left, Nascar is going to have a hard time doing anything to Brad when he does pay him back after they let Edwards off the hook when he basically admitted he took him out on purpose. Edwards has serious mental issues.

i disagree, carl is just telling people that you cant try to wreck him without consequence. brad needs to learn that lesson. brad also needs to look at the bigger picture as well, especially when he has the points lead. all brad had to do is maintain that points lead by just finishing close to edwards every race, and he will win the championship. but if brad continues to try and wreck edwards, he may end up losing that championship. dont forget that because of the stunt he pulled, and which carl retaliated, brad lost 59 points by finishing 14th, as opposed to finishing second and losing no points.

^More like horse face vs horse face.

Every time I see either one of them it makes me think, why the long face?

Although I don't care for either of them, I gotta side with Keselowski on this one. Edwards was way out of line.

I'm sure Keselowski will make sure Edwards doesn't make the Cup Chase.

I don't know gang... If you take away the other cars hitting BK's car after it came down to the inside wall, it really wasn't a big deal.

And what I mean by that is he chased Edwards up the track in 1 & 2 and then gave him the chrome horn to pass. You know darned well if that Edwards (or whichever driver that happens to) can catch up to the other guy before the checkers, he'll get you back.

The payback was not over the top. It was a classic return bump. The aftermath was where the severity came in. Sometimes you're going have minimal collateral damage, and sometimes, you're going to have a big wreck after a payback.

It's a shame that the wreck turned out as severe as it did. But, in the grand scheme of things, it was a total racing deal.

(Besides, the cars that hit BK actually put him over the Finish Line!)

Whoa there partner, A return bump would have been to the back of Brad's car, given position he could'nt tag him in the left rear (as Brad did to Carl). That loostens ya up and makes you counter stear, but is recoverable...To deliberatley put someone in the outside wall by turning them right, is dangerous and Carl was wrong to do it....The last 3 drivers killed were suddenly turner right and into the wall...Either by another car or a blown tire. Carl should be suspeneded for the rest of the season

if you think carl should be suspended for the rest of the season, then you have to suspend brad also as he was the one that started the whole thing. i am not saying what carl did was right, but brad needs to learn he cant be pushing others around all the time.
