Yes, finally!
And look the season hasn't even begun yet and read this....

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Tony Stewart and Kurt Busch were ordered to steer clear of each other Saturday in hopes of preventing a repeat of their high-octane confrontation on the first day of Speedweeks.


NASCAR officials summoned Stewart and Busch for a follow-up meeting Saturday morning, just hours after the two drivers tangled on the track and possibly in the NASCAR officials' trailer afterward. The entire garage was buzzing over Busch allegedly insulting Stewart and Stewart retaliating with a punch claims no one would confirm or deny.

NASCAR spokesman Jim Hunter said officials have not decided whether to penalize either driver, but delivered a stern warning.

"You two guys better give each other plenty of space," Hunter said. "You clearly understand where we are with this and we're going to continue to think about it."

Hunter said any resulting penalties would be announced Monday or Tuesday.

Busch and Stewart, former series champions with a history of clashing on the track, crashed during the final practice session Friday night.

Busch attempted to block Stewart and got hit from behind, damaging both cars. Busch retaliated by slamming into the side of Stewart's car twice as they drove back toward the garage. Stewart then used his car to block Busch from entering the garage.

Both drivers were immediately told to meet with NASCAR officials. And that's where the details get a little sketchy. Talk spread throughout the garage Saturday that Stewart and Busch continued to bicker once inside the heated, closed-door meeting.

NASCAR officials at the meeting refused to comment. NASCAR president Mike Helton said: "I wasn't in there."

Stewart's car owner, Joe Gibbs, flew in for the second meeting and also refused to comment on the specifics of the confrontation.

"Anything that happens in there, stays in there," Gibbs said.

Both drivers downplayed the confrontation during television interviews.

"Tony and I are competitors. We always have been and we're going to be just fine," Busch said. "We're going to move forward. We know we need to help each other out in the future so that doesn't happen again."

Stewart said Busch's fender-slamming wasn't a big deal.

"What Kurt did coming onto pit road ... I've done a lot worse than what he did, so I'm not going to throw stones," Stewart said in a statement. "Kurt's emotion and desire and passion to win are much like mine. The easiest way for us to go out and do what we do is just agree to disagree and go on from there.

"The best thing to do is to go on and move forward and not let this linger between the two of us. We've met in the NASCAR trailer twice now and we're both past it and we're hoping that the media will respect that fact, too, and let us move on from it."

Stewart called Busch a "great driver."

"He got here for a reason it's because he's got talent," he said in a TV interview. "That passion is what makes us all as good as we are. That's part of racing. That's what happens. It's no different than going to any Saturday night short track. We both got our cars fixed for tonight and we're ready to go."

The two drivers have feuded in recent years. Busch accidentally wrecked the heavily favored Stewart out of last year's Daytona 500.

Four months later at Dover, contact between the two sent both into the pits. Busch swerved his car at Stewart's on pit road and crew members had to leap out of the way. One even jumped onto Stewart's hood to avoid being hit.

Busch was fined $100,000 and docked 100 points for the incident.

Although NASCAR officials have cracked down on misbehavior in recent years, they came into this season saying they were more receptive to drivers showing their emotions - the "NASCAR we fell in love with," as Hunter called it.

But Hunter said Saturday officials weren't comfortable with drivers expressing that emotion by deliberately bending fenders.

"When I say that's the NASCAR we fell in love with, I'm not talking about a guy taking his car and ramming another car on the race track," Hunter said. "I'm talking about drivers getting out and showing that I'm mad, I'm upset and venting that emotion. They certainly did that."

Would Stewart and Busch have been better off getting out of their cars and confronting each other face to face?

"Absolutely," Hunter said. "I'm not saying I would have liked to have seen them get out of the car and duke it out. If they were going to do that, I would hope they would have enough sense to keep their helmets on."

Junior won the shootout! Yay! That will show his stepmommy.
I hope Mark Martin wins something this year, he is a good guy and a good driver and it's time. You just need a little luck.

I thought of that as he crossed the finish line for his first win in how many races with DEI? Sucks to be Theresa Earnhardt--betting one of those ear to ear grins was just for her! I think he's going to do great with this new team. He won me $25 last night

Was my 4th straight year going up there. Always amazed at the banking, the 18 hours of honoring budweiser and how cold it seems to get up there. Good to be home where its 80. Gordon and Hendricks will dominate this year.

I agree to disagree, but if it makes you feel any beter, i don't consider horse racing a sport either(for the jockeys anyway).

Apparently, it's not driving at speeds in excess of 190-200mph with 33 degree banking along with 42 other drivers trying not to get yourself or anyone else killed.

They must drive like that all the time. That's why it's not a sport to them.

In terms of athleticism, NASCAR is more of a sport than fishing.

I disagree with bowling and golf. It takes a tremendous ammount of athletism, and a great combination of balance, and gross, and fine motor skills to compete in bowling and golf.

Not for nothing but my uncle Freddie was a 300lbs alcoholic who smoked 3packs a day and had a 220 average at one point.

Double trouble
Edwards wins again but fails inspection


Making his second visit in six days to Victory Lane, Carl Edwards triumphantly raised the glittering gold belt he earned at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

In a town known for title fights, Edwards emerged as a heavyweight contender Sunday.


"We do this to win. Winning these races is the greatest," Edwards said. "Winning a championship would be the ultimate. What we're trying to do is win the championship this year. That's our No. 1 goal."


Just three races into this new season, it's far too early to call Edwards the favorite to win the Sprint Cup title. And this win may not be controversy free: NASCAR discovered the lid was off of his oil tank box during postrace inspection and is taking the parts back to North Carolina for further inspection.


Five Nationwide Series crew chiefs were suspended six races each, fined $15,000 and their drivers were docked 25 points last month because their lids were loose during an inspection.


It could mean that Edwards, who won his second Cup race in six days, could have a short first visit atop the points standings. He holds a 21-point lead over Kyle Busch.
