IMO there are just too many over aggressive, immature drivers in NASCAR for the "Boys, have at 'em" approach to work satisfactorily. If NASCAR is to be taken seriously, driving standards and etiquette need to be improved big time.

Of course, it's always possible it isn't meant to be taken seriously?

quick hits-
KB sure had what appeared to be about an eighth of a mile pushing the 33 to decide whether he was going to finish the 33 off or back off. Hard not to punish such decisive malacious intent.
you can exit turn 4 at texas 3 wide with a cinder block sitting on the gas peddles and you can manhandle a slippery, ill-behaving truck through turn 4 at texas with a cinder block sitting on the gas peddle but it is pretty ridiculous to try both at the same time, especially if you're the meat in the sammich. REALLY bad move, Ron
from the looks of the grandstands these days NASCAR must be overjoyed that somebody did something to generate media buzz, so they parked him.
So much for KB getting this chase thing out of his head.
So does this mean that boys have at it attacks like this are only OK under green?

I agree with both comments, NASCAR is too unprofessional, anywhere else and the driver would be out of racing, and NASCAR encourages too much of this stuff. This however was so blatant and it wasn't a back and forth thing either which would have made it harder to judge.

Case and point. Nascar is about entertainment, it's not really about racing. There may have been a time when Nascar was about seeing which "stock" car was fastest around an oval, but those days are long gone. I'm an American, and I can say that while many Americans DO see the through the joke that is Nascar, many others buy into it--just like they buy into big time wrestling. I'm not saying that all Nascar drivers, or all wrestlers, are fakes, but their sports are generally fake. Crash shouldn't even carry news about Nascar--not on the same site as F1, MotoGP, WSBK and WRC, anyway.

Apologises? How many times have we seen actions quite similar to Kurt's last friday, and no apologies were ever offered.

Patetic. For some dark reason, Kurt accepted to have his good share of NASCAR's bull sh**. Even worst, he's aparently actually enjoying the thing...
