It was a side-by-side restart, Harvick shouldn't have guessed it'd be empty. Driver'* look to see if the line is clear, harvick obviously didn't.

I'm not really a JPM fan, he kinda flubbed up his F1 career, and just ran away when the McLaren team really turned it on, but given what he had car wise, he didn't have much room on either side. It'* a racing incident, and that'* why no one'* getting punished IMO. Yes it does look like the 1st gear was a bad choice as well, i'd love to see reasoning behind it But IMO mistakes were made on both sides of the fence, and harvick made the big one after it was done as well.. Get 'em both a pacifier...

As per the COT, I think some car specifications should be brought back to production models, such as wheel base, some drivetrain figures. Granted I prefer the COT body to the older asymmetrical body.. The major obstacle is keeping them safe, or safer than current cars.

perfectly said.

nascar is not hockey and never should be.

getting out of your car to have a scuff with a guy that hit you? or better yet, the guy you hit? i applaud the sportsmanship.

road rage ftw.

There is a very high level of frustration with Montoya. He'* made a good dozen enemies on the track this year alone.

This level of frustration was the catalyst in this episode.
