Since when is it wrong to root for the guy to do well because he's the local kid and because of what happened to his father?

So basically what it boils down to is, Dale Jr. sucks, therefore he isn't a star (he is), and doesn't deserve the superstar treatment. got it.

Btw, I acknowledge that the entire superstar treatment is in a sense unethical. This is only for the sake of the argument.

That's kindof the point.

honestly, I liked the non call...I think there are too many pussy caution flags and this showed that there wasn't a need...track was clear by the time the leaders came around.

Regardless, it wasn't consistent with the way NASCAR had been issuing caution flags the rest of the night.

Had Nascar really been wanting a Jr win, they would've thrown the caution after he took the white flag. Then it's a done race.

Hate to break to the haters.

Learn the rules before you post dumb poo.

What gets me is that NASCAR doesn't realize half of its fan base sees what they're doing when they pull stuff like that.

that would have been the same as taking out a front page article stating, "we engineered Jr's win"

The bumping was on the first of two laps and caution should have been thrown then, waiting a full lap later after the white flag would have stunk to high heaven.

By the way, Nascar rules aren't that hard to grasp.

The fan base will still watch. They lose very few viewers by pulling all these strings for the chosen one.

I admit that it chased me away from the sport several years ago to the point that I just watch an occasional race here and there. But the number of Dale Jr jock sniffers far outweigh the numbers that give up on NASCAR because of the preferential treatment to Jr.
