  • I agree. What Edwards got was a slap on the wrist. It would be easy to say that he got special treatment becasue he is the poster boy for NASCAR. I don't know if that is true or not. I do know he gets more face time on all the pre and post race shows than his competitors, win or lose.

    That may or may not be the point however. Bottom line, he should have at least been penalized some points. Three race probation means that if he plays nice for three races all is forgotten.

    I see Edwards as a talented driver. He has every bit as much ability as any of his competitors. His main problem is his lack of good sense. He has displayed this in the past. I once heard him say after wrecking that he thought the move would work because he'd used that move in a video game. He needs to realize what he does on Sunday afternoon is real life with real lives at stake. It is not a video game.

  • Brad Kaslowski is a young aggressive driver that has not been correctly disciplined for all of his aggressive actions in both Nationwide and Sprint that HAVE caused several wrecks that could have been just as catastrophic. If NASCAR does not discipline equally, then seasoned drivers, like Carl, will have to initiate some street justice.

  • Yes Edward was being a thug and a nut. I was shocked when it happened. It was terrible. Let's hope Kaslowski keeps his cool this Sunday on the track. I've been a Nascar fan since I was knee high to my Daddy. Let's stay safe guys.

  • well if you think about how would someone wrecking another driver on purpose any differant than Dale in the #3 doin it to pass or the rainbow princess causing big pile ups to win.They didnt do it out of anger but they still done it same as this guy...Ofcourse out of anger is ignorant and low it sounds like a whiney #24 move...but trying hard to only wreck this guy was a pathetic move...3 races aint enough of a banishment how about 3 seasons....GO KASEY KAHNE #9
