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.

    • Im pretty sure he was white as a ghost in the comics bro
    • They're results, not skillsets.  Too many factors go into those results to get a conclusive evaluation.  For instance, how many times was Howard targeted downfield compared to Njoku?  How was he used in the redzone...as a receiver, blocker, the primary option, and so forth? And yards after contact is a very inconsistent measure since not all contact is the same, nor are the situations in which a player gets the ball.  Not to mention the role the offensive scheme and surrounding talent plays.  Heck, if all we had to do was look at the numbers, there wouldn't be any need for the combine, all-star games, pro days, private workouts, etc.  Teams could just pull out the stat sheet and make their selections.  No, teams look for the skillsets a player possesses to determine how they translate to the NFL.  Stats are only an indicator to use as part of the puzzle.  So, just looking at the actual skills, what does Njoku possess that is superior to Howard?  Has he shown better hands?  Has he shown he can run better routes?  Is he a better athlete?  Is he a better blocker? The answer is no to all of them.  Does that mean Njoku is a bad player?  Absolutely not.  But Howard clearly has the better tools, and is considered the better prospect by virtually every evaluator for a reason.
