I'm watching this and UFC 126 while writing a research paper. I'm rooting for JJ of course but I wouldn't mind seeing Martin Truex to win.

Finally got back home a few hours ago from the track. Amazing 9-11 tributes everywhere. Richmond is a fun track and the races are usually good and last night lived up to that.

Glad to see 29 take the checkered flag, wouldn't have had a prayer without that last caution. Both the 24 & 99 came on strong atnthe end.

Let the championship run begin- Come on Harvick!

I was sitting at the entrance to turn one and saw him about a second after he spun. His car never stalled and once he finished sliding in the grss he righted the car forward and touched the gas for a second then abruptly stopped. The yellow came out almost immediately after that. He then took off normally. Couldn't look more suspicious if he tried to.

Everybody in the stands around me was yelling the obvious that he did it to get the 29 on fresh tires so he could dominate Gordan in the final laps. Don't know how much they talked about it on TV but the 29 was the fastest car on the track for the first 1-4 laps, then the 99 would dial in and slowly be as good or better. The 24 looked piss poor on the 1st 10-15 laps under new tires but was a beast on worn tires.

This stuff about teammates sneaking ways to help each other to these extremes is nothing new to NASCAR. I remember it happening a lot back in the mid to late 90's.

They didnt say a word about it on tv. Didnt even show the replay. One of the reasons I dont follow Nascar as much any more. I still like watching the Daytona 500 and Richmond but after that I dont watch. Get the cheating and favortism out I might come back.

If he did it for the caution, he's the man.

if he didn't, his car control sucks.

If it wasn't for the fact that he provides his own sponser it's doubtful he'd even have a ride.

Could have been "team orders" but there was no real advantage to Harvick, it's not like he was on the bubble. On top of that, you can't tell me that HMS has never done something similar.

But it did help Harvick. He was able to get extra points for the chase with the win. It happens all the time with blocking which I have no problem with but to spin out on purpose I do. Wont effect any points but hopefully Nascar will be more prudent on watching for it.

It bumped him up within the Chasers, but if that makes any difference I'll be surprised.

I don't support it by any means, but there's really no way to know for sure. I'd be disappointed in Kevin if he was apart of that.
