And to think that some people actually though what Rossi did to Gibernau years ago, on the last corner of the last lap was harsh. NASCAR definitely doesn't pull any punches when it comes to a get square. You guys are nuts.

That was pretty pathetic ... as was his attitude & comments. It's not up to him to "do something about it", & using a 190mph race car as a weapon is blatantly criminal.

We were sitting nearby, & could easily have been injured by pieces flying off that car. After it came out that he admitted to deliberately wrecking Brad, spectators were furious that they were put in harms way, some even threatening legal action against Edwards & NASCAR if they don't punish him properly!

Ban him for the rest of the season, & thereafter give him a lifetime ban suspended for 5 years ... if he does it again, he can go play golf.

A season or lifetime ban would be the only appropriate action here, caught this on the news here in Aus and I am familiar with the past incident with Brad and Carl, but it seems that Nascar have endorsed a "street justice" policy, an eye for an eye if you will.

Who is to blame here, Nascar or the idiot driver that went on Nascar's blessing to put not only Brad's life in danger but a multitude of spectator's and marshall's as well.

This whole series is a joke after this, you are not racing billy carts, people's lives are at risk and it's all about the entertainment, get stuffed Nascar, you've lost me :-(

The TV coverage showed video of the two cars and you could actually see the white gloves on Edwards hands jerk the steering wheel to the right and into Brad's car. It was beyond deliberate and at the speeds being run on that track, dangerous to everyone there. Edwards went over the limit and I welcome a severe punishment for him. Kyle Petty said it best later on - he needs to be sent home for two to four races to think about it. Their earlier incident can also be attributed to Edwards. He seemed a man on a mission and seemingly had no care for anyone on the track or in the stands. NASCAR does not need a car into the grandstands and a repeat of Le Mans in 1955.

Only in America would the fans be threatening legal action.

Haven't you ever heard the saying or seen the signs that say "Motorsport is dangerous" or do you Redneck Nascar fans ignore them because you can't read.

BOOGITY BOOGITY BOO down the STRAIGHTAWAY.

Denny did the same thing to Brad last year in the Nationwide series, but there was no call to give him a "lifetime ban".

The only difference was that the car didn't flip - owing mostly to the design differences of the cars.

Fans of Tony Stewart know that he often wrecks his competitors for perceived slights. His latest trick is to use his splitter to slice the sidewall. How is this any less dangerous?

Payback has been a part of Nascar from the beginning. Like Juan said, it was only a matter of time with BK.

Brad is a wreck waiting to happen, he does these kinds of things every week including back in Taladega where he put Carl in the air! Brad doesn't understand that he has not paid his dues in on track and someone was going to put him in his place. The wreck was scary and Carl should not have done it but if you have been watching NASCAR for any amount of time (Fan for 30 years) "pay backs are a b....!" Talk to other drivers like Denny Hamlin, they have an on going argument on the track that starts from Brad thinking he is great. Pretty sure it comes from being part of Jr's team! BRAD you are not JR, pay your dues and stay off of everyone elses cars!! Don't care for him, he's a brat!
