Hats off to Nascar. They made the right call.

He could easily ruin Edwards' day.

And don't forget about all the other cars that got caught up in his roid-rage at St Louis.

I'd say his car has a big bullseye on the rear bumper.

As for daddy's reaction, I guess you don't have any kids 'cause if you did, you'd understand.

Yes, I got kids.

When my son played football, I saw no reason for me to be interviewed by the local radio station after the game.

The reporters probably found no reason to interview you.

Brad's dad was a former racer, so he would obviously have a different insight. The reporter sought him out. Never the less, interviewing someone's Dad after he almost saw his son get killed or injured was not cool on part of the network.

------Brad's dad was a former racer------

So was Jimmy Spencer

He also gets overly involved in his kid's race activities.

No I didn't forget about Brian-------33rd in points.

The only way he would get an opportunity to ram Edwards would be if Edwards was passing him to put him 4 laps down.

I like Carl but wrecking Brad like that was out of line.

As for Brad's dad, I don't blame him for that reaction.

I thought Brian was a start and park.

Did your son ever get hit by an idiot, bounce off the goal post and take out half the team? Bet your reaction to that would have gotten you on the local radio station.

What does it matter if he's 4 laps down? All he'd have to do would be go high and turn into Edwards when he goes by. If he watches the replay of St Louis he can see how it's done.

The likelyhood of Brian taking out Carl is slightly lower than me winning the lottery.
