Tough day, had a loose wheel, then a tire got away, then the car lost power, but still salvaged a top 10 finish

RE: Food City 500 - Race Talk
Good morning,

Yesterdays race was a long hard day at the office/track. What a recovery! Hard work and talent saved the day with an 8th place finish and kept the 22 team up in the points standings. The last two races without the teams hard work could have been a free fall in the points.

I started going to local stock car races back in 1955 and have been a fan ever since. Many times I have watched Rusty Wallace and Dale Sr. change the outcome of the race during the last lap. Many others did the same, make a car lose traction and go past to win the race. It was considered racing and the reason to race was to win.

Intentionally trying to wreck anothers' car with intent to do serious damage is different and wrong. That I do not condone.

Now, the crowd in the stands cheered the outcome and how Edwards used his bumper to cause the 18 car to lose traction, wiggle and allow the 19 car to pass and win the race. It will provide for interesting writings, interviews and possibly a retaliation. Should be an interesting teams meeting at JGR today. I would love to be the fly on the wall.

Will someone please explain to me why when the 22 car tried to pass the 20 car, at Kansas I believe, and the 20 car lost traction and wiggled why this incident was not considered racing. From what I could see the 22 car did not touch the 20 car and I do understand loss of air around a car. Isn't that part of racing? Please educate me on what really happened as seen in the drivers minds racing that day.

Thank you and good fortune during all the remaining races.

Capt Neil
