He shot his mouth off all week about someone being killed because of the bump drafting, and then BAM! He's an idiot.
Thanks, and from what I saw of Matt prior to the wreck... he had a pretty fast car too.

Looks like there will be a little fueding between JJ and Ryan Newman.

Newman already crying. I understand the problems with JJ`s crew and car. But they served, or are serving thier penalty. Is Ryan a seahawks fan????

Yeah, usually it takes at least a couple races before these guys start going at it, and we've got at least 2 full blown feuds this year after just one!

wow it looks like the author of this article is crying more than newman. (sarcasm) look at what he had the gall to write:


"There was more fallout later in the day, when NASCAR suspended Knaus for three more races and fined him $25,000 for making the illegal modification.

Knaus has had problems in the past, which probably led to the negative comments. Last March, he was accused of cheating following Johnson's win in Las Vegas when his car failed postrace inspection. After a win in September at Dover, Del., Johnson's car again failed inspection."

i love it how people call ryan newman the whiner/crier. and then they refer to his 8 win season and say the only reason he won had to be because of cheating. of course while ignoring that half those wins were by outsmarting the competition with pit strategy, and ignoring that newman is one of the best drivers at feathering the gas pedal and floating the car into the corners thus saving fuel. its an age old technique that most newer drivers dont bother using. the more common method is mash the gas pedal and mash the brakes. - not to fuel efficient. with newmans and borlands background and degrees in automotive engineering, im sure they could cheat circles around the competition if they really wanted to.

(gasp) BLASPHEMY! That's it! Me and you, dude... LOL

Regarding the article Suit posted, I found the last paragraph particularly interesting, as well...

"In the garage area, the crews know they're trying to pull one over on the sanctioning body and the sanctioning body smiles about it because they know they're trying to get them back. It's a cat and mouse game that's been in our sport forever and it will always be there."

Has no one here ever tried to "pull one over" on their boss/company? Never called in sick when you weren't? Never, ever cheated on an exam/test? Never cheated on your taxes? Never cheated on a girlfriend/wife/lover? Etc... C'mon now...

I'm not saying that I condone cheating, but gee whiz... I'm sure every single team is trying to find an advantage. Jimmie says it's true and I believe him. He would never lie to me...(lol).

so hes cheating because everybody does it but would never lie?

steelerzgirl this article kind of addresses your viewpoint:http://www.sportsline.com/autoracing/story/9254061

2. Should Jimmie Johnson have been allowed to race?
Brian De Los Santos /

Personally, I have no problem with Johnson running -- and winning -- the 500, because I don't think violations found in qualifying should be considered as serious as those found in a post-race inspection. NASCAR went over the car with a fine-toothed comb after the race and it passed with flying colors. But -- and there's always a but -- I can see where those who think the whole No. 48 team should have been thrown out of Daytona along with crew chief Chad Knaus are coming from. NASCAR continually says it will get tougher on cheaters and then dishes out the same old punishment: suspension of crew chief, some sort of fine and loss of owner and driver points. In this case, NASCAR didn't even go so far as to impound the car that was found in violation. Now I do think that was wrong. Even though it was a fixable issue, Johnson should have lost his primary car for the race. If NASCAR is going to start kicking teams out of races, they need to come right out and say all violations will result in expulsions, no ifs, ands or buts. But as of now, that's not the rule, so there's no reason Johnson shouldn't have been allowed to race in the 500.

Charlie McCarthy

Of course. Johnson doesn't build the car or set up the car, he drives the car. Crew chief Chad Knaus has paid a huge price, and I'm not talking money or points. Knaus wasn't present when his driver won the Daytona 500 -- that's something he'll live with the rest of his life. If NASCAR ever does contemplate suspending an entire team for committing a rules violation, the organization at least should do so only after giving fair warning. NASCAR also should tell team members to erase a long-held garage thought from their minds -- "It's NASCAR's job to make the rules, and it's our job to break the rules or push them to the limit." Not any more.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

nascar doesnt want to become like wrestling where a guy pulls out a chair or sledgehammer, beats the crap out of his opponent, while the ref has a turned back knowing damn well whats going on. all in the name of entertainment. nascar has come too far and has huge vested interests in the legitimization of the sport.

See, that's just the thing. NASCAR needs to not only make the rules, but also needs to outline the punishment to be meted out for each infraction. Currently, NASCAR just does whatever the hell it feels like. I agree with the poster that said that NASCAR needs to be consistent. After what Tony Stewart pulled on Sunday, it's my opinion he should be banned/punished/suspended/fined from a few races himself. I'm sure you don't agree with that, though, tony, because you're simply a Jimmie hater. Matt Kenseth was screwed royally over what happened. My opinion is that everyone should be treated equally, regardless of their popularity, championships, etc.

Us Steelers fans weren't too happy when Peyton Manning and Tom Brady were considered the golden boys of the NFL don't forget.
