If this fiasco today by Kenseth didn't prove that NASCAR lost control of the sport I don't know what will.  It was a great race up to that point.  I am not a Lagono fan by any means.  I think he is a little jerk driving way over his head with a streak of good luck on his side.  But to be taken out on purpose by a car several laps behind when he was leading is uncalled for.  Glad for my favorite drive on his win.  Will be interesting to see what NASCAR does on Tuesday.

Kenseth is my new hero. Lagono has needed someone to do it to him.

No doubt that Lagono has been drive like the Earnhardt of old.  But for a driver that is several laps down to deliberately wreck a leader, regardless of who it was, is uncalled for.  Kenseth needs real hefty fine and bared for the rest of the season.  Wasn't even ,man enough to own up to what he did.  Flat tire my butt !!  He had no more mechanical problem than the man in the moon.  Just a very cowardly act on his part and he made a lot of enemy's doing it.  He will pay dearly for his stupidity.

He will pay, But the crowd love it. Stock car guys never forget. Yes I would have rather he got his ass kicked then to be taking out. That would have been a better race. I'm glad Jeff won it.

Kenseth doing that was a black eye on the sport and his own reputation. I always liked his smooth style and low-key manner, but when he wouldn't man up to what he did, that has made me re-think it.

 

Do you folks remember when Jeff Gordon was the one getting all the boo's from the spectators? Funny how that changes!

 

Logano driving like Earnhardt should be gaining his popularity you would think---LOL! The crowd reactions were embarrassing to me though. Kenseth should have been the one getting the boos.

 

I've nothing against either of Penske's drivers. Hard core racers. My guy, Martin Truex Jr. had a decent day so I'm ok with that!

No doubt in my mind that Logano is a very talented young driver. For a long time he has been banging on other drivers and it was a matter of time before someone was going to take a shot at him. That happened on the smallest track on the circuit where there was the least chance of serious injury(unlike some retribution incidents in the past) .On the matter of admitting one deliberately took him out? Seems a few years ago Dale Jr. Bragged on the radio about a deliberate spin, to get position on a restart. Caused enough trouble to make talking too much unwise.

You bet Logano was due..  How many drivers did he wipe out this year??  Johnson and Gordon and...

The 20 took out both of the fastest cars on the track yesterday. Used to like him but not so much now. What happened at Kansas between the two was as much the 20's fault as it was the 22's. When you have a slower car and you're blocking things like that happen. The 22 did nothing wrong at Kansas to deserve what happened to him yesterday.

It's getting to the point where they might want to run the races in giant sandboxes. Keeps all the kids in a familiar environment.

 

Very happy for 24 though :thumbs:

This puts Logano in a similar situation as Jeff was last year this time.

Lagano had to expect it, if not he's stupid, and I doubt that. I stopped paying much attention years ago, but every time you heard about him this year, it was either who he wrecked or who was looking to get him back.

Think what he did to Denny, Im Glad  He took Kenseth out of the chase. So Kenseth  took him out of the chase.
