The Pit Stop

Richmond Thoughts....

That Saturday night race for the 13th place sport was a joy to watch.  Kyle Busch and Brian Vickers right close to each other all night long.  Best battle all night long.

Even with 20 laps left the drivers at the bottom were not even safe, one blown tire or engine and their chase hopes would be toast. 

It really sucked to be Kyle at the end of the Saturday night race.  He did what he had to do to try to get into the chase, but Brian also did the same.  This certainly showcases that consistency matters which is what I want.

With what John Force was accused of doing last week you wonder if anything like that could occur in NASCAR as well.  One team with a 100% safe driver for the chase tanking the race to help another team member get into the chase.  I think the NASCAR penalty would be so sever though both drivers would not have a chance at the championship though.
