Only MW could put himself into the wall coming out of the pits.  Sheesh.

Great job by SPEED to show Danica in-car after the crash instead of the final lap.  It's not like the final lap is important.

I was thinking the same thing when he did it.

At the point she went around the race was over. They panned to show the leaders and back to Danica. It's not like they were just showing where she was running, she was headed into the wall.

I'm as anti-Danica as anyone, but to say a frozen field as important as what that could've been is ridiculous. Had they germ in turn three, then yeah I understand.

They were not real clear in the booth.  My point is SPEED is doing a pretty crappy job so far.  Just like the audio is messed up and the video has been jumpy in the pre-race.  And I'm not anti-Danica, I just don't want to stare at someone sitting in a wrecked car.

When they replayed the wreck, the sound happened before she hit the wall. I told my wife that was a hard hit to hear it first. Then they interviewed her and it was like watching a japanese movie.  LOL

It was a stupid thing he did, by climbing back on the track WAY too soon. Of course DW said it was due to dirty tires.

HoggyCat:
Now Mikey blames it on "not knowing the rules" or not running here last year, and not pitting Saturday night.

I remember back before NASCAR instated the yellow line rule, they warned the drivers not to go below the yellow line because it upsets the car and will shoot it across the track.

Sure enough, Ward Burton; "NASCAW told us not to go under duh yellow line cause it really hinders the caw's fahwud momenum. I messed up and go too low over in 2, drifted up into the 3 caw and piled a bunch of good caws up."

It's the same principal. Not rules, or experience. You messed up.

Hognosis Negative:
Why did they even throw the caution at the end of the first duel?  She was in the back on the last lap.  Let them race to the finish.  Would've been an exciting finish.

It was too close to the front half of the lap. Had she been further around where there was no issue with safety crews then they woulda let em race.

I watched Tony win the first duel.... then went back to work... dvr'd the thing.... it stopped middle of duel 1.... so when I got home to watch it all..... nothing!  Speed cant even get their schedule right on directTV.... good thing it is replaying so i can record it again.

I cried laughing when I saw that.  My friends and I have a $5 a person pool every time he races on what lap he will crash. We forgot to do it for the duel, I picked lap 27 on the shootout and lost handily.
