I don't dislike Kyle and I certainly respect his ability as a driver. But when somebody beats you to the checker don't be saying our car wasn't right. Give a little credit to the guy who passes you for the win.
It's not like Carl is a middle of the pack racer who "got lucky".

I have to stick up for my guy Shrub on this one. He said he had a second place car all day, so in a sorta-kinda way he gave credit to Edwards for the win.

It was more like the blue flag with an orange stripe.

First three cars are Toyota, I guess those Japs know more about building small block V-8's than Chevy or Ford?
Seems to me NASCAR was warned about letting Japanese companies getting into NASCAR.

First they dominated Indy car. Then they dominated Truck racing, then Nationwide and now they are looking to dominate Sprint Cup.

Not taking anything away from Bush, Hamlin or Kane as they are all good drivers.
But if you don't think the Japs are trying to dominate the Americans at their own game you are clearly mistaken.

Hendrick, Roush and RCR ain't worried about it. Wait until they get to Michigan, Chicago, Daytona, and Indy, those Yotas are going to look like that commercial where the car is dragging a ship anchor.

I am not necessarily a great fan of Kyles but I have to say he is one of the best ever .His starts and his abilty in traffic plus what he gets out of the car bad or good makes him that fro what i am seeing.Toyota has come a long ways in a short time.
