A Picture is Worth a 1,000 Words

I went to Bristol! 

Usually this blog is a rant about something that happened during a race. This week nothing to rant about because I so enjoyed my experience at Bristol Motor Speedway that I thought I would let some pictures speak for themselves. Enjoy.

Accidentally on Purpose

How do you defend the indefensible? 

I spent a lot of time on Twitter reading and posting comments about the now infamous Edwards/Keselowski on track disagreement. Fans on both sides offered different perspectives on the incident. It is no secret that I am a die hard fan of Carl Edwards and I will admit to getting caught up in the "BK must die" hysteria. 

However, now that the adrenaline has worn off I am prepared to offer a calmer opinion. I go on record saying, "Carl you screwed up!" Carl was 151 laps down when he returned to the track after an earlier on track incident with Brad Keselowski. At this point Carl was turning laps to gain as many points as possible so as not to lose too many spots in the points. Why then, Mr. Edwards, did you feel it was necessary to turn Brad Keselowski with  5 laps to go? 

It has been hypothesized that this was a retaliation for the incident earlier on the track. Your responses in the post black flag interview alluded to that fact as well. Therefore, shame on you! Your fans have been able to take pride in the fact that you are a "clean" racer and you own up to your mistakes. Often it has be credited to you that in tense situations you don't let your emotions get the better of you. 

How then do you defend the indefensible?
