    Often accidental contact results in both cars crashing. If done intentionally, it is much easier to avoid any serious damage. Build cars with a strong enough suspension to sustain wheel to wheel contact and back off immediately after contact.

    Kahne came really close to winning last Saturday at Daytona. Was really hoping an underfunded team like that could pull out the victory with all the wrecked cars.

    Really shows how uneven the playing field is when Harvick and Truex's cars are held together with duct tape and were still faster than the other cars with no damage.

    No one passes him all day. Then near the end Larson passes him and his fucking track bar adjuster breaks a lap or two later and kills his chance at the win.

    I think we all learned something new, though.

    14 rounds of wedge equals out - 5.5" of trackbar lol
