What'* wrong with the way he drives? He'* fair, gives the good guys chances, and the idiots a message... He'* consistently good on all track types, and is honest with the media. He'* a dying breed in a Nascar circuit that'* becoming "softer" by each rule change.

Exactly. Idiots or not, I am not a fan of the bump and run or taking someone out. Although I do feel some joy when I see Tony or Jr. go out. Paybacks...

I have seen him drive his a$$ off and save himself form what almost any other driver would have been a definite wreck. An the guy wins raises. And I have no problem with how he acts with the media. Frankly I think it'* stupid that they stick a camera in a drivers face right after he wrecks, and then get all upset when the driver acts out. What do they expect?

Ummm.....ratings?

They WANT the guy to flip out after a wreck. The EXPECT the bump and run, especially if the slower car won't move up the track. It'* about hype and media. And they're good at it, which is why NASCAR is watched by more people EVERY Sunday than the NBA final 4 and championship. Only the NFL is watched by more viewers than NASCAR.

Guys, this isn't Formula 1. NASCAR cuts it'* teeth on physical racing.

Oh yeah, ratings. Ratings = $. Point well taken. I still prefer to see a clean pass. And, for the record, I don't like it when ANYONE takes anyone out. (except my earlier mentioned comment regrading the 8 and 20) Even when Mr. Nice Guy Gordon takes someone out, I hate that, even though all of my inlaws, who got me into NASCAR, are all Gordon fans.
But confrontation and wrecks equals ratings.
It was pretty cool though when Robby Gordon threw his helmet at Waltrip? (I think it was) last year.
