Tackles Keselosky after a race incident and now is crying about Logano taking him out.

The majority of former racers turned broadcaster seem the think both Kenseth (blocking) and Logano (spinning him out) did nothing wrong.

Kenseth should grow a pair and quit crying.
agreed!!

I haven't seen that interview. I'm guessing he showed more class than last weeks non winner.

I hate the chase format.

Really, I do. All it does open things up for this kind of BS.

I hadn't watched a single lap since mid August, but tuned in today because I usually enjoy Talladega.

Yep, I used to love this race. Today was boring at least to me. The fans were booing at the end.

Well, gee.. I wonder why they were booing.. And it's not because of the race.. It's because of who won vs who was in 2nd place.

This is what sucks.. I totally believe that was intentional on Harvick's part, but.. What do you do? Kick him out and put Newman in? An argument could be made that he doesn't do that, Earnhardt wins, and therefore advances.. But, do you take him and put him in? That doesn't add up..

Let's say Hamlin was lead lap and the wreck caused him to miss the next round, do you take Harvick out and leapfrog Hamlin over Newman?

Harvick did it perfect.. While I doubt he thought of all this.. He put NASCAR in a spot where they can't do jack squat to him, because if they do, then they show that their system is a farce.

Totally agree that Earnhardt's interview was pure class.

Little E showed a lot of class and maturity in his interview in light of a frustrating end to the race.......NASCAR should have done something when Harvick repeatedly mentioned that his car could not accelerate. If NASCAR is so concerned about safety they should have flagged him to the back of the pack and called him on his comments about his car to his crew.

I am still in the minority of those saying that NASCAR is in a diminishing sport as far as viewership and fan interest goes. I am still trying to figure out why it is only on the NBC Sports channel here where we live.......lots of guys I work with don't get the channel and don't know how to stream it.

Very frustrating ending to what could have been one of the most exciting endings in a long while. Yes I was rooting for Jr, he may not have gotten in front of Joey, but it would have been interesting to find out. Harvick did what he had to do to stay in the Chase. The other drivers behind and around him should have been warned if they hadn't been.

To watch NBCSN streaming, you may want to look into Kodi and the SportsDevil app. It was streaming yesterday. There are media boxes that have Kodi already installed or you can install it on something like an Amazon FireStick or a PC.

Thanks, at my age I am a bit tech savvy, but some of those I work with are not......and many of those who cut the cord on cable were in for a surprise this season when it wasn't on the local channels.

As far as the green white finish.....in my opinion you keep going until you can make three laps, now it is a chess game as far as throwing a caution and freezing the field. You want edge of your seat excitement......there you go.

I don't know is there any other sport that changes the rules as much as NASCAR does?

You want some excitement NASCAR..............move Talladega's elimination to next week or let those effected in the final chase like they did for Gordon.
