I'd love to see Bob K put on the suit and try to drive one of these cars!

Yeah, he was an ARCA ace and he had a couple of truck starts. He thinks he can take out a Cup competitor? OK, he'll take out Cup stars and windmills!!! I'm not impressed.

Bottom line is Edwards is going to have to worry about Keslowski's.......when he gets into a tight spot with Gordon, Stewart ,Harvick, Earnhardt, to name a few they aren't going to be worried about taking him out!

What Carl did was just wrong. It was not hard racing at all, it was just wrong! He needs to loose more then a few points and pocket change! I use to really like him too--sad...

I agree, Carl crossed the line, but was it good for NASCAR?

I don't see how that could be "good' for NASCAR. Taking a chance with anyones life can't be good for anything! I can see a little roughing it up out there and getting the fans involved is good but not something like what Carl did. He keeps saying "I didn't mean for it to be that bad or to have others involved and ruin their day too". He cannot know what the end result might be when he pulls this kind of cr@p. He needs to get his head on straight and act like an adult. Just my personal opinion.....

Carl is like that Two-Face character in Batman. Tries to be Mr. NASCAR in front of the camera's and around the RV lot, but when he gets on the track, don't think about crossing him.

The one thing this feud and wreck did though was bring more press coverage to NASCAR. I'm not sure what the ratings for the O'Reily race at Indy was on Saturday, but these kind of feuds usually bring in higher ratings.

Carl should be suspeneded for the rest of the season

Um, the right rear is actuly easier to recover from then a left rear hit. The fact brad has yet to figure out how to drive is not Carls fault.

You are taking a bigger chance with your life leaving your home in a vehicle on public streets and roads. As for Carl getting brad back, that's NASCAR racing.

The only problem I see is that Brad lacks car control when he gets a little bit out or shape. It was unfortunate that he got T boned in that incident that made the little bump a lot worse that it could have been.
Perhaps Brad should take one of those road race driving courses like most of the other drivers have done so he could learn a little more about car control.
Either that or S T F U
