Difference is, Kyle Busch was fading and had already blocked Blaney once. No way he was going to keep Blaney behind unless he wrecked him.

Exactly, Busch was a sitting duck. As to a rule, it's a common sense racing 'rule' but not written down. Another dreaded unwritten rule that probably needs addressing. Blaney showed a lot of maturity not spinning Busch out when I'm not so sure that would happen the other way around. That kind of blocking has no place in racing on any level. And yes, Busch is one helluva wheel-man but come on now, he's better than that stuff.

you guys need to take off the little girls skirt and put your big boy pants on. this is real racing people, and it is NASCAR racing, a rough a tumble series for real drivers, not some sissy boy racing like F1 or cart has become these days.

you want to watch a bunch of sissy boys race "like gentlemen" then dont watch nascar, F1 or cart is your style.

Enough with the hyperbole. When you block once and the guy is going to pass you anyway, you don't run him down the track. It's common sense.

oh please this isnt formula one, its nascar. this kind of thing has been going on since the inception of the sport, in fact before nascar was formed. and you havent answered the question i asked either, how many times has kyle busch not taken new tires, when everyone else did, an not only stayed in front of the field, but won the race on old tires? it happens quite often. he did what he had to do to try and win the race, and so did blaney and harvick.

i suppose next you are going to claim that dale earnhardt sr never did what busch did right?

Have you watched nascar in the last 30years? Because the rough and tumble stuff went out ages ago. As to Earnhardt, he would have dumped a driver that blocked that badly. If he blocked like that he would have been dumped as well, and I doubt he needed to go that far. Kyle had zero chance of holding that position.

I'll ignore the colorful parts as none of that makes any sense at all.

i have been watching nascar since the early 70s, and while some of the rough and tumble has gone out of the sport, there is still the under current of the old days. all i can say though is grow up and put your big boy pants on, and stop thinking this is F1 or indycar racing, it isnt, and it never will be. what kyle busch did was mild compared to what drivers in the past have done, including drivers like carl edwards, kevin harvick, brad keslowski, tony stewart, and many others. busch was protecting his position, and so was blaney when he held off harvick.

if you dont like kyle busch, fine, but at least respect what he did to try and win the race, and respect the fact that he didnt wreck blaney, or that blaney didnt wreck himself in the effort.

Where do I say I dislike Kyle? Read the thread some, I'm Kyle supporter for the most part.

As to the rest, I really have no idea what you're talking about.

you are trying to tell me you dont remember when carl edwards and brad keselowsko tangled regularly? or when harvick and logano tangled? to when tony stewart tangled with half the field at one time or another? if you dont remember these times, then you are no fan of nascar, at least not one that watches regularly.
