Busch and Edwards have to play nice

This ought to get things going a little more...

Busch, Edwards placed on probation for Bristol antics

By NASCAR.COM

August 27, 2008

12:07 PM EDT

-NASCAR announced on Wednesday that it has placed Kyle Busch and Carl Edwards on probation for the next six races in the Sprint Cup Series, as a result of their on-track incident Saturday night at the conclusion of the race at Bristol.

Busch and Edwards violated Section 12-4-A (actions detrimental to stock car racing; hitting another competitor's car after the race had concluded) of the 2008 NASCAR rule book.

The probation takes effect beginning with this weekend's event at Fontana, Calif.

Executing an adroit bump and run on Lap 470, Edwards passed for the lead and pulled away over the final 30 laps, winning by 1.969 seconds over Busch.

"It's one of those deals where I couldn't get by him, I couldn't get by him, and I just had to ask myself, 'Would he do that to me?' Edwards said after doing his trademark backflip off the car in Victory Lane. "And he has before, so that's the way it goes.''

Unhappy with the way Edwards passed him for the lead, Busch bumped Edwards' No. 99 Ford after the checkered flag. Edwards bumped back, and Busch's No. 18 Toyota went spinning (watch video).

"He'll always come back and say he's sorry," Busch said. "He did it at Milwaukee and he's done it a few other times. It's just his normal fashion. That's fine. I've grown to know that now.

"You know, to pass a guy, to hit him getting into the corners ... is very tired. But that's what he did. ... I had been getting into the corner light all day, and I don't know, maybe I over-braked and drove myself right back into his nose."

NASCAR summoned Busch to the sanctioning body's transporter after the race.

"Let's make it real clear -- I'm not apologizing for it," Edwards said, citing several instances where he felt like Busch took him out of races to gain positions. "We're even.

"They keep talking about rivalries,'' Edwards added. "We might have one now.''

Now this is just not right in my mind Busch has gotten away with takin alot of people out of races all year and one little bump at bristol by Edwards to get by him and nascar puts them both on probation.Busch should of been on probation way back after the 4 race of the season when his stupid driving took out allmost half the field.All i can say is bristol has allways been a bangum up race track if your slow a little bump to get you out of the way should be ok as long as your not putting someone into the wall been that way allways will be.To put Edwards on probation in my mind was a big mistake by nascar he did nothing wrong the rat came affter him after the race ended like the rat poor driver he is.

Regardless, Edwards still spun Wild Thing.

Everybody knows Carl is a dink. Just ask Matt Kenseth

Then I have to ask why The Rat wasn't placed on probation after he purposely spun the #88 on the last lap at Richmond? If not probation, at least a black flag for rough driving at the time of the incident?

I'm pretty sure it wasn't the contact during the race that got Carl in trouble (or shrub for that matter). It was Carl spinning him out after prickly bush ran into him on the cool down lap. I heard him on the radio yesterday saying he fully expected a penalty for that and didn't disagree that he'd deserve one.

I agree Lawdog, the play after the race was more than likely the issue.

At least Edwards admitted that he was wrong, something the kid probably would not do.

I thought the whole thing was great! Did you hear the crowd go nuts when it happened? Now that is racing. Give the fans what they want. I guess I don't think anybody should be penalized. I just thought it was good PR.

It was good PR thats why they did it.

If they had not done anything and let it fly no one would be talking about it 5 days after it happened and they also waiting until Wed. to hand out the news. In the past we hear about it on Tuesday?

Nascar needs somthing for the fans to talk about right now in a year where the cars are junk (IMO) and the big name guy's are struggeling the ratings are down attendance is down Nascar needs something to help them threw the "down time" and get the fans pumped up about the chase.

There is my 2 cents.

What happened to letting the boys be boys?

Is Busch on his first probation of the year, or is he now on double probation?

I agree.

Guess it's a kinder and gentler NASCAR for 2008.

No rivalry after all. (yawn)

I thought the mantra at the beginning of the season for NASCAR was to let boys be boys? They wanted to spice it up a little due to their plummeting ratings and attendance.

My dad was at the Bristol race(s) this past weekend and it sounds like he had a blast at his first NASCAR event. I had the opportunity to go and passed on it for various reasons. I dozed off during the race so it's not the Bristol of old that's for sure. It still would have been a hoot.

Carls a pretty big, athletic guy. Matts fairly skinny. I don't actually think too many guys would mess with Edwards that race with him.

It was pretty obvious Edwards had the faster car, after all Busch had 30 some laps after the pass to catch him and put Edwards in the wall and couldn't. The antics after the flag was a Nascar version of roadrage.

    • I meant harmless in the sense they don't kill fish. With that being said, I'm sure the host fish would prefer that it not have a lamprey attached to it, but at the end of the day, the fish will live...literally. Lampreys are very common in the upper St. Croix River system. I see them attached to redhorse all the time, which makes sense, as redhorse are by far the most abundant fish in the system. If the lampreys haven't "crashed" that system after several thousand years of coexistence, I'm liking gamefishes' chances for the next several thousand years also 
    • John Podesta May Have Violated Federal Law By Not Disclosing 75,000 Stock Shares 3/26/2017 Daily Caller   John Podesta, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 2016 national campaign chairman, may have violated federal law by failing to disclose the receipt of 75,000 shares of stock from a Kremlin-financed company when he joined the Obama White House in 2014, according to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group. Joule Unlimited Technologies — financed in part by a Russian firm —  originally awarded Podesta 100,000 shares of stock options when in 2010 he joined that board along with its Dutch-based entities: Joule Global Holdings, BV and the Stichting Joule Global Foundation. When Podesta announced his departure from the Joule board in January 2014 to become President Obama’s special counsellor, the company officially issued him 75,000 common shares of stock. The Schedule B section of the federal government’s form 278 which — requires financial disclosures for government officials — required Podesta to “report any purchase, sale or exchange by you, your spouse, or dependent children…of any property, stocks, bonds, commodity futures and other securities when the amount of the transaction exceeded $1,000.”   Podesta’s form 278 Schedule B is blank regarding his receipt of any stock from any company. Liberals and conservatives alike tell TheDCNF Podesta should have disclosed the stock. “Well Podesta should certainly have been more upfront in filling this out.  Clearly, it should have been fully disclosed,” said Craig Holman, a lobbyist for the liberal group Public Citizen which was founded by Ralph Nader.  “That’s the point of the personal financial disclosure forms, especially for anyone entering the White House,” he told TheDCNF in an interview. “If the transfer of stock took place, it had to be disclosed,” added former U.S. Attorney Joseph DiGenova in an interview. “If he didn’t, clearly it’s a violation.”   OH, MY...   And there is soo much more to this story...   Absolute criminals...   Link
    • Schumer goes off on Trump supporter at NYC restaurant, witness says Published March 27, 2017 New York Post   Witness: Schumer went off on Trump supporter at restaurant Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., caused a scene at a Manhattan restaurant when he began yelling at a wealthy and well-connected Donald Trump supporter that the POTUS is “a liar.” Schumer, the top Senate Democrat, lost his cool on Sunday night at Upper East Side restaurant Sette Mezzo, according to witnesses. He was dining with friends when he encountered Joseph A. Califano Jr. — the former U.S. secretary of health, education and welfare under President Jimmy Carter and domestic policy adviser to President Lyndon B. Johnson — and his wife, Hilary, who were having a quiet dinner. Onlookers said Schumer was incensed that Hilary — the daughter of William S. Paley, the founder and chairman of CBS — had voted for Trump, even though her husband, Joseph, is a well-known Democrat. One witness said of the restaurant rant, “They are a highly respected couple, and Schumer made a scene, yelling, ‘She voted for Trump!’ The Califanos left the restaurant, but Schumer followed them outside.” On the sidewalk, Schumer carried on with his fantastical filibuster: “ ‘How could you vote for Trump? He’s a liar!’ He kept repeating, ‘He’s a liar!’ ” Hilary confirmed the confrontation, telling Page Six, “Sen. Schumer was really rude . . . He’s our senator, and I don’t really like him. Yes, I voted for Trump. Schumer joined us outside and he told me Trump was a liar. I should have told him that Hillary Clinton was a liar, but I was so surprised I didn’t say anything.”   Sheezus....   What an unhinged lunatic a-hole....   Could you imagine if this had been paul ryan acting in this way ??   I think a knee to the groin was in order..
