This race is good.

I think Ambrose has a little more in that than JPM though. If Kurt can take Ambrose at the restart JPM has a good chance, otherwise Ambrose should get past before the end and will win... good race though!!!

yeah i'm enjoying this one. Half expecting JPM and Ambrose to take each other out.

AJ almost awesomed all over the place and nearly took 3 cars on the outside of a restart. Meanwhile Boris was an idiot. :-\

Maybe JPM was just playing with them earlier. He's checked out at the front. Hopefully we keep green till the end.

I reckon he just used his car upto to get that posistion and to catch and pass jpm earlier in the race because he was waaaay faster than anyone out there!!

this win has been a long time coming though, its a shame it was a road course. we know he can do it there, its just the ovals.

He was relaxed today, somethng which he hasnt seemed for a few races, and thats what has dogged him!!

nice, very convincing, ala Webber... Ambrose was a bit dissapointing, he lost the race on merit, small mistakes meant he dropped behind and trying to recover he might have used a bit more the tyres so didn't have them for the end?? it seems he's the Vettel of NASCAR, his small, almost "insignificant" mistakes cost him wins in a series that forgives mistakes a bit

what's going on with Hornish? it's almost funny and embarrasing to see him at the end of races, it's like everybody let's him go and have fun just to take all the places back at the end, he's always loosing places at the end

I think part of the problem for Ambrose at Watkins was his starting posistion... He had to pass alot of cars to get up to that posistion and they said he probably would have used his brakes. Whilst JPM was probably taking it easy out in front. A clever drive for Montoya. But on a road course, i think it's alot easier to win. He adn the 42 team still need to prove they can do it turning left.

Kahne to be at RedBull next year then whilst waiting for the #5 car.

Scott Speed has to be the one to budge. If he's fit Vickers is so much more impressive whilst Scott Speed isnt great at all.

He's not quick on road courses, and he's usually at the back somewhere on the ovals. The guy is a c*ck anyway imo, somewhere in the same category of Kyle for being a c*ck, but at least Kyle has talent.

Montoya again looking strong this weekend :)! I'd like to see his total laps led of the last 10 races and compare them to others. He wont get in the chase, but if he did, I think he could supprise again! He's been quick week in week out!

Good stopping point for Kahne, but I'm disappointed it isn't Stewart-Haas.

Sadler still has no contract for 2011. Menards left Petty for RCR (and takes the sponsorship with him). That leaves just AJ there for now, with nobody else confirmed.

I just think RPM are going to go down hill from here. they been going downhill for a while, if it wasnt for kahne they wouldnt even be worth talking about. but saying that We dont know if they are giving all the good cars to kahne and giving the crap to menard and Sadler. AJ can be up there but its always short lived and never for a whole race.

side note, kahnes payback to newman was grand. didnt have to try kill him like edwards, and bowyer got infront of newman so he lost positions in the chase!

well that was partially dissapointing... no secret i'm gunning for Harvick, he looked strong until last pit stop... he requested some changes that didn't work... luckily for him last pitstop and restart worked and he was able to get ahead Johnson... but still i was hoping for better

it was cool to see him bump Johnson there, lol... i could almost feel his anger

Hamlin looks good though

I think I prefer the #11 to either the #29 or #48.

Gordan had every right to be as angry as he was, but I hope he's sensible enough to forget it now, it was a simple mistake by Burton...

The prick of the race was Kyle! Its such a shame he's so talented because he is an utter prick! As his spotter said, he ruined the race for the team. Being a lap down would not have cost him, a top 5 would still have been possible imo, but his gestures were out of order.

The guy can drive, he just needs to grow up! ironically, wasnt it the other prick in the field who spun him in the first place? scott speed.

JPM was pretty awful really. Could barely stay in top20. Ill put it down to a one-off becausse bar a few mistakes on JPM's side/the team they would be in the chase. They've run well this year and though it doesnt seem it, imo its been an improvment over last year. I just hope he can finally make that step next year and grab that win, and be a geniune top 10 contender race in, race out. He seems to do well for 2-3 races then has a bad one... then again 2-3 okay/average races etc.

you can really feel his spotter's frustration... i really hate him, he thinks he owns the track..... i really hope he @#$%& with the wrong guy one day.... at least Kurt didn't even get a second on TV.. lol

also i honestly don't believe a single word Burton said about the incident with Gordon... he sounded genuine when he apologized and all but the way i see it, i think he did it on purpose and once he knew and saw what he did he probably regretted it as it was a bit extreme
