  1. Robin Pemberton, I hope that you and NASCAR are looking at the driver using the out of bounds as a racing surface, this is not the racing surface I believe that the double yellow rule should be at all the tracks and not just during the Race but Qualifying. One reason is the record book a driver thinks he has a new track record when they when they used the out of bounds area he cheated buy using the out of bounds/apron of the track. Some how this new gen of drivers think its ok to used the out of bounds/apron of the track if that the case we need to release the pit road speed so they can go as fast as they want. And the second reason is it not safe look at the Phoenix race where Elliott Sadler where he used the out of bounds/apron of the track and pull in front of those guys and cause a big wreck and you know the rest. So I hope this Problem can be address to make the racing safer and better. thanks Randy

  2. Sure Robin, keep running your mouth. That is what you are paid to do, explain all the stupid mistakes that the suits that run the race have done.
    NA$CAR should have penalized for the stupid decisions from the booth. They are not competent. They should spend the winter picking an independent team to run races that know what they are doing.
    Bowyer should have been fined for running 200 yards and threatening to “kill” the “sob.” Where are you now Pemberton? What about the team of the 15? Obviously they are the ones who incited the riot.
    Meaningless decisions made by Helton, Pemberton, Darby and Huth will always be with us. Get consistent.
    You should pay Jeff for doing this. You have more coverage on the net, news shows, etc. than you could buy.
    Maybe save your sorry a—- for a sorry year.
