    If it finishes under yellow, so be it. I hate artificial bunching of the field are artificial close finishes. (Was there a green, white, checkered today?)
    If you notice this notice then you will notice that this notice is not worth noticing.

    I haven't the slightest idea what you are referring to.
    "Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."

    You only get one shot at a green, white, checkered finish.

    It beats the heck out of 11 laps of yellow to the finish....

    Green white checkered is indeed good as it gave Jeff Gordon the win.!!!! Call me a redneck, because in truth I am one and I loves me some NASCAR. It may well be the worst "sport" ever, but I like it.

    Here is a Bud light! Yep, a Gordon fan that drinks Bud. And my second favorite driver is Jimmy Johnson, but I shop at Home Depot. I am just a walking anachronism. And yes, the green white checker is just an invitation to a big wreck, better be in the lead or you are in the belly of the beast.

    Actually he got it before the yellow flag came out that sent it to green white checkers.

    I liked nascar better when they were allowed to race back to the yellow and didn't have the dale jr rule(All of those mysterious invisible debris cautions just when the over-rated driver is about to go down a lap.)

    I'd like Nascar a lot better if there were more road races on the schedule.

    No, he still had to race for it, until the checkered flag waves, it is a shoot out. Once the wreck occured, the field was frozen and NASCAR turns to all sources, including video to decide the finishing order. Today, the green yellow checker did indeed give the win to Gordon. Racing back to the yellow was just going to get someone hurt. The current system works and ensure driver safety. And the Dale Jr. theory does not fly. He did not make the race to the chase, seems he would have if Nascar had the fix in for him.

    I'd like nascrap better if the technology was more modern than the best 1975 had to offer. Also, IMO, just like Boxing and Wrestling, it's fixed.

    That's now known as the Jimmie Johnson Rule, by the way.

    Sorry Jeff, I'd rather watch highlights of the Tour de Georgia (even though I already know what happened on each of the stages). There is one aspect of NASCAR I can relate to though.

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    Technology does not a good race make. Go watch your local 2-stroke kart races for some good racing.
