Phoenix Race Wrap Up

Your opinion counts — have your say on the race.

Was anyone really surprised that Jimmie Johnson won the Checker O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 in Phoenix. Johnson is the only one having a championship type year.

But first of all what’s up with ABC giving up the race broadcast with less than 40 laps to go. That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen.

Doesn’t ABC realize that not everyone has access to ESPN2. That’s no way to treat viewers after they’ve hung in with you all afternoon watching all your commercials. Way to take care of the fans ABC.

Hats off to NASCAR for being so fast on the red flag when Scott Speed was trapped underneath the No. 38 car. That could have been ugly. NASCAR did a great job.

Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Kurt Busch and Jamie McMurray all had great runs — but once again no one had anything for Jimmie Johnson. Busch was giving it everything he had on the final 2 laps.

“We had a great race car. We just got beat,and we got beat by something special.” — Kurt Busch

Are fans getting tired of Jimmie Johnson winning everything? If so, why doesn’t he get booed like Kyle Busch?

Johnson needs to finish 36th or better at Homestead to wrap up his 3rd consecutive championship.

What about the huge wreck after the checkered fell. I think that was the biggest wreck all day.

I wonder what Roger Penske thought about Ryan Newman giving Tony Stewart a push to get started after the red flag. At least Newman has only one more ride in Penske’s car, then he goes to drive for Stewart.

Is there anything you saw. A great move, or something really stupid. Here’s your chance have your say on the race. What do you say?

  2. Leaving ABC when the race had so few laps left was like watching a tied basketball or baseball game in the final playoffs. Switching for funniest videos? I saw nothing humorous about the videos. Dumb and dumber.

  3. BYRON on
  4. IF ABC WASN’T GOING TO SHOW THE RACE IN ITS ENTIRETIY, WHY SHOW IT AT ALL. GUESS ABC HAS A BUNCH OF IDIOTS IN CHARGE JUST LIKE THE WHITE HOUSE.

  5. BadBob on
  6. Bet if this was football, they would not break away and go to another channel. ABC sucks and ESPN should not be allowed to broadcast Nascar races, screw the money. Nascar better get their $h!tt togather next year and have the races televised on one channel at one time.

  7. Traveler 42 on
  8. I can’t understand why Junior can’t get thru to his crew chief near the end of (EVERY) race. Come on Junior WHO is screwing up , You or Tony Eury. I will always stand for Junior but I can’t help but wonder why his car Always goes away in the last section of the race.

  9. Judy on
  10. If the race had been a football game they would have showed it until it was over. Why not a NASCAR race? What about the people who don’t have ESPN2? They had to be pretty ticked off.

  11. Traveler 42 on
  12. I should have said Tony Eury Jr.

  13. Amish Al on
  14. Maybe its time to switch the Eury boys, to see if Sr can come up with what Tony Jr cant !!

  15. Tom on
  16. I think if Nascar can’t provide the coverage that everyone deserves they should be ashamed. If they award a contract thats worth millions of dollars they should have the expectation that they would not be overlapped by a studio production.

  17. Tony Wilkerson on
  18. Montoya is an idiot. Maybe that new President can give him a job as a Limo driver. Spread the wrecks, I mean the wealth.

  19. Daveroo on
  20. shame they didnt show Hiedi instead of funniest home videos….maybe it wouldnt happen again…but ya know..racing isnt a sport..so they dont care if they cut us off.just like we miss the start of many nationwide races this season for tennis and then college football…..now this…NASCAR needs to rewrite the contract

  21. Roy Corbitt on
  22. Are millions of fans fed up with NASCAR like i am in reference to some of their decisions ? Like today at Phoenix they had a big wreck in the middle of the race so NASCAR red flagged the race to clean up the track which was the right thing to do even though they could have ran many laps under caution. Then with about 10 laps to go they have another cautionn but they let them run 8 laps or so under caution so they could have a green, white, checkered flag finish which NASCAR must think is exciting but it is not and it cheats the fans out of the big bucks they have paid to see a full race and not a two lap shoot out ?

  23. Elaine on
  24. It wasn’t very professional to change channels at the end of the race. There are a lot things that I don’t understand, like why the only cars not having any problems are JJ and the CE. There is absolutly something going on in those garages and I would like to know what it is. Newman pushing Stewart to start his car was sportmanship, I think. I also wonder why Jr’s car always goes away. Why aren’t all the Hendricks cars set up the same way?

  25. Danny on
  26. I agree with BadBob…NASCAR needs to stick with FOX for the whole season. This channel switching makes no sense for the fans…this keeps up and I’m switching to open wheel again. Wake up and smell the coffee Brian, NASCAR’s too good for this kind of crap.

  27. Dave Eckrote on
  28. DUMP ABC !!!! NASCAR needs to get their [profane] together. Thia isn’t the first time this has happened. Stupid videos cutting off the end of a NASCAR race ?? Who the hell is in charge of that idea?? They should be tied to the roof of Montoya’s car for the wreck-o-rama he always causes. Fire someone please.!!!!!

  29. Buzzo on
  30. I am glad I have ESPN2. The second to last race of The Chase? ABC must not realize how loyal the Nascar fans are!!

    I AM A JR. FAN AND I AGREE TONY JR. NEEDS TO DO A BETTER JOB AT THE END OF THE RACE. IF THESE RACE TEAMS HELP EACHOUTHER THEY NEED TO STEP UP ON THE LAST HALF OF THE RACE. DALE JR DRIVES HIS BUTT OFF AND HIS CAR IS TRASH THE LAST HALF.I KNOW THERE IS ALOT GOES ON WE DON’T KNOW .BUT IT REALLY LOOKS BAD

    Yeah, I would have been pretty hot too if I hadn’t had ESPN2.

    I feel sorry for all the people who missed the end because they only have broadcast TV, or just don’t get ESPN2.

  31. Joe on
  32. I AGREE ABOUT ABC. BUT AS FAR AS THE WHITE HOUSE, IF YOU THINK ITS BAD NOW WAIT ABOUT 3 MONTHS !!!

  33. Dave Eckrote on
  34. DUMP ABC !!!! NASCAR needs to get their act together This isn’t the first time this has happened. Can’t beleive stupid videos would out score the end of a race even on ABC. Someone should be fired for this one and NASCAR needs to find a network to work with or set up their own.

  35. Joe on
  36. I DONT CARE WHERE MONTOYA GOES AS LONG AS HE LEAVES NASCAR!!

  37. Wendall Lund on
  38. I believe that Montoya should spend alot more time in the NASCAR trailer. Where does get the idea that all lap cars should get out of his way. Myabe he should go back to open wheel and have Danica Patrick teach him a few lessons. No that would be an insult to Danica.

  39. Claudia on
  40. The first part of watching the race but when they turned it over to ESPN2 at 7:30 we got a blank screen. I called Comcast about this matter and they said that everyone in our area was having problems getting the rest of the race. They said it was an internal problem. I think ABC did us wrong by not finishing the race on that channel. If it was a football, baseball, golf, hockey they would of finished. We need to get rid of ABC for televising races unless they play the whole race. I really wanted to see the ending of the race. At least now I can get some of the updates from the Speed Channel, they would never cut a race short.

  41. Mama Donia on
  42. AMEN, JOE!!!!!

  43. Tony & Kim on
  44. We have basic cable and look forward to the races on ABC, this was crap tonight for them to switch to ESPN.
    Someone needs to look at the economy or pay our cable bill’s so we can watch the races…Mery Frickin Chrismas ABC and ESPN

  45. Donna on
  46. Well I can say here for once we got to see the ending of tha race ..But they cut us off after the race was won and all didn’t get to see any interviews or anything ..But ABC has screwed us around here before by not showing us races here in Canada ..I wish they would leave fox to the broadcast they do a great job and they never cut us off..So I sure hope someone can get there act together before next season ..The other thing we here don’t see with espn taking the practice sessions and qualifying ..They don’t show either of it here in Canada and that is just the pits ..We used to see see all of that stuff on speed and when speed quit espn doesn’t show it here which I quess our channel would be tsn and alot of times there is never anything on the channel it is off air so I sure hope these people can get together and show us fans here in Canada quailying and practice session going into next year if they can’t get it right for this year ..

  47. Aubrey on
  48. i think it was extreamly stupid of abc to switch with just a few laps left, i think they could have waited the lil bit longer…i dont have espn2…and i missed the end, i had to call a friend and listen over the phone..it sucked, i missed a 8 car wreck, i wish i could have seen it…i am now hating abc for that

  49. Mama Donia on
  50. EVEN THOUGH NASCAR HAS DONE EVERYTHING THEY CAN THINK OF TO HELP CARL EDWARDS AND JACK ROUSH WIN THIS CHAMPIONSHIP, IT SEEMS THEY CAN’T DO IT. THEY RUN THE LAPS DOWN WHEN CARL WAS LEADING THE RACE LAST WEEK TO LETTING HIM USE SOMETHING SO HE WOULDN’T RUN OUT OF GAS, 60 LAPS, WHICH NO CAR CAN RUN AND IT BE LEGAL. HA, HA, HA, TO DR. JERRY AND ALL THE CROWD THAT CONSTANTLY TALKS ABOUT COUSIN CARL, IT’S BASICALLY OVER, GO JIMMIE GO!!!!!

  51. George on
  52. Went out of the room for a minute and
    N O R A C E !!!T hope there is sombody that was working for A.B.C. to-day but not to-morrow

  53. tina on
  54. how about the points?

    when Dale Jr. was running 4th and 5th, he was 8th in points, then he ended up finishing 6th, and drops to 10th in points? Does Nascar change the points system during the race or what.
    Dale Jr. stayed pretty much in the top 5 most of the race, then Denny Hamlin passes him in the last part of the race and ends up in 10th? Maybe its just me, but I don’t think Nascar can keep track very well of thier own points system. What do you think of it?

    Traveler 42 ,I agree with you 100% ,There is some communication problems with the JR’S

  55. Mick on
  56. I’m sick of this open domination. Was Kyle, til Toyota got busted, now it’s Jimmy..will Chevy get busted? Don’t think so. Only magic makes one car THAT much better…and I don’t believe in magic. Far as TV..this split season stuff sucks! Nobody goes out 100% when you only get half the season. I think TV is a big part of Nascars problems, one of many that need addressed before next season.

  57. Tom on
  58. What did they do to Matt Kenseth for his dumb act? He took out about half a dozen cars with his little payback stunt. He should have been parked. I like Matt, but he was wrong. ABC sucks, just like usual! We need a designated station for all Nascar activites, half the time, I do not know where to go to see it anymore. Put all the races on the SPEED channel, let them try it, and see if it works. They do good with the truck races, and prerace shows.

  59. Mama Donia on
  60. TINA, I AGREE, IT SEEMS NASCAR HAS A PROBLEM SCORING THE CARS CORRECTLY. NOW IF IT’S CARL EDWARDS THEY WANT TO GIVE HIM ALL THE POINTS THEY CAN.

  61. Mama Donia on
  62. I’LL BE HAPPY WHEN FOX TAKES OVER THE BROADCASTING OF NASCAR RACES.

  63. Motorsports Photography on
  64. ABC leaving the race high and dry with so little laps to go was just unbelievable, especially for the people who don’t have cable.They are very disrespectful to the fans that pay their salary. They wouldnt do that with the NFL.

  65. Ross on
  66. I was pleased to see Kurt finally run up front. Dodge has been unable to accomplish anything in 2008 and now with the financial mess in the American automobile industry prospects are not good for Dodge in the future. I have been a Chrysler person for many years and I was so happy to see them return to Nascar. Iacoca told Washington what would happen if they did’nt smarten up years ago! Now we are witnessing precisely what he told them. The big 3 are now has beens! This is a shame.

  67. Frank on
  68. I don’t have cable but I do have a dish (Directv)With them I get Hotpass. And they show 4 drivers every week.So I get to see the race to the end. You want to get rid of ABC/ESPN2 get a dish.

    I too thought ABC was wrong for stopping the race for Video’s….so what if other stuff ran behind! And all who said it, had it been a football game, no way! I love when they start the season on Fox and I wish they would stay with Fox all season. They swith around too dang much. On Friday’s , I am flipping channel’s just to keep up with peactice and qualifying!! I get ESPN 2, but I thought that was a little crazy with those few lap’s left!!

  69. Sylvia on
  70. Jimmie had a good race today, I am still a junior fan all the way. Junior had a good run today. I am very proud of him. Don’t worry junior you will do good on the next race, if not you will do great next year. You will be on top of everything. You are still the best and favorite driver in Nascar. I love you with all my heart. Sorry I wasm’t able to make it to Texas this year, I always go. Be there next year.

    I was lucky – when cable dropped Speed I went digital to get it so was able to watch the end of the race (after a bit of channel searching) – I too get frustrated when Junior runs well and then drops back by race end and do wonder why? Think this time its Jimmie’s Trophy to win – he and Chad worked hard for it.

  71. Traveler 42 on
  72. I have to agree,it was a lot better when FOX carried the races—–OR the SPEED CHANNEL. DOWN WITH ABC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  73. Ray on
  74. If the cable company can switch cannels they need to figure out how to change their dvr player so it will switch also, I ended up recording funnist video’s and I didn’t think they were funny when I was expecting to see the end of a race, that really sucked. ABC sucks anyhow, too many commercials and they never finish anything they start.

  75. Sandy Mitchell on
  76. I for one do not watch anything on ABC, CBS nor NBC because they were so bias on the election. I do have AT&T U-verse so I can watch almost anything. Only trouble when you record a program it turns off with the end of their channel programming. It does not stay tuned if a race delay or rain or channel changing takes place. When I used to have Version Fios I would program at least 1 hour after a scheduled race which would take care of the problem. I agree with most of the responses to this problem, let’s just stick with FOX.

    Hey Joe…You couldn’t be further from the truth. I give it 2 months before the s..t hits the fan. Did you say THE WHITE HOUSE?? How about all of Washington D.C.
    All I know is that if NASCAR has a contract with ABC for next year they had better get their act together. It’s like losing the electricity when the screen just sudenly black.

  77. Gordo316 on
  78. If I was running NASCAR, I would tell ABC thanks for pissing off our fans even more. Then I would pick up the phone,call FOX and say “Boo-Ga-Dee, Boo-Ga-Dee lets go racin boys” & wake up DIGGER while your at it. NASCAR needs to step up & tell ABC that it’s bad enough NASCAR is struggling with sponsorships for most of the teams for next year as it is & does ABC think by cutting the race with less than 40 laps to go is going to make sponsors wanna sign up knowing there product or ads might not make it to air. This was the second last race of the year. Just imagine if this was Homestead and they pulled that stunt. NASCAR is trying to find ways to bring back the fans and make NASCAR more exciting. Cutting the second last race of the season off to put on Funny Video’s is just plain stupid. If NASCAR doesn’t step up and do something to ABC for this. Then I have just one more comment for NASCAR. “LOOK WHAT HAPPENED TO “CART”

  79. JAN14 on
  80. The 17 did alot of damage with payback on the 10 at the end of the race but the bad part when the 10 hit the 17 the 20 got the worst of it. Yes I’m tired of seeing JJ win it all, I think everyone knew Carl did’t have a chance.The Jr. fans just need to quit being so delusional and see things learly. 42 should be fined along with the 17 and races should stay on fox.

  81. JAN14 on
  82. meant clearly

  83. Kasey's Ga Nana on
  84. SINCE MATT KENSETH WAS NOT PARKED FOR HIS STUNT AGAINST #10, HE SHOULD AT LEAST BE FINED BY NASCAR ON TUESDAY. YOU DO NOT(REPEAT NOT) “GET EVEN” ON THE TRACK. THAT COULD HAVE TAKEN SOMEONE ELSE OUT OR HURT SOMEONE ELSE.

  85. Betty Pierson on
  86. I wish ABC & all major networks were disqualified from having NASCAR. They never follow thru. Thank God we have satellite and can move over but what a let down for fans who don’t!! Keep it on ESPN or Speed entirely. Let them have the NFL as the networks seem to be able to keep them on forever IF that is what it takes. When we travel we have the problem as our satellite only picks up ESPN & Speed and it makes me very angry also. Let’s all vote to make FOX, ABC & and other major network not eligible for any RACE!!!!!!!!!!

  87. Jan P on
  88. What’s up with this crap ABC? You would not switch from broadcasting a stupid football game to put AFHV but you would switch off Nascar with just a few laps to go? Glad I had satellite bad for the ones who did not have the option to switch to ESPN2. I say that’s crap and Nascar fans are getting a raw deal.
    Nascar needs to be on a channel where they won’t be switched off just cause the race didn’t end in the allotted time. I miss recorded plenty of programs that were delayed because one game or sporting event did not end as scheduled and the program that was to follow was up to an hour late in starting. If the networks want to be that way they should not get to have the best sport NASCAR!

  89. JEFF ROPP on
  90. JUST GOT RID OF DISH TO SAVE MONEY IN CASE OF UPCOMING LAYOFFS. AT LEAST I CAN WATCH SUNDAY RACE ON ABC WRONG WHAT A JOKE

  91. DAVID,D on
  92. I AGREE FOX SHOULD GET THE FULL YEAR.
    THE COVERAGE BY FOX IS SO MUCH BEETER THAN ABC, AND FOR THAT MATTER CBS OR SPEED.

  93. Dave Williams on
  94. ABC= Abbreviated Broadcast Company

  95. Dave Williams on
  96. Sorry about the spelling. Go Junior Jimmy is having a great year that is why he is leading. The reason people don’t boo Jimmy like they do Kyle is simply because Jimmy doesn’t cry when he loses a race

  97. michelle on
  98. ABC was absolutly rediculous if they want to carry the nascar races on their network the carry the whole thing if not let a network that wants to do it. realy if it had been a football game or a basketball game would they show AFV? come on get real.What i want to know is this one of the first signs of OBAMA?????

  99. Maureen on
  100. DON’T GET MAD AT FOX IT’S ALL ABC. I AM PROTESTING AGAINST ABC AND EVERYONE ELSE OUT THERE SHOULD ALSO. I WILL NOT BUY ANYTHING ADVERTISED ON ABC AND I ALWAYS BUY WHAT NASCAR SELLS……..ALWAYS. I DID NOT WATCH ABC THIS MORNING AS I USUALLY DO AND I WILL NOT WATCH “DANCING WITH THE STARS” ANYMORE EITHER! COME ON AMERICA STOP WATCHING ABC THAT’S THE ONLY BAD STATION OUT THERE THE OTHERS WOULD NEVER DROP NASCAR (ESPECIALLY AT THE END) FOR SOMETHING AS DUMB AND STUPID AS SILLY VIDEOS!

  101. Maureen on
  102. AMEN! Perfectly said. Montoya is not NASCAR material. When will NASCAR

  103. Maureen on
  104. My friend had several people over and spent a fortune on food and drinks only to miss the ending of the race because she did not have cable. Someone suggested we never watch ABC again and several agreed. We all felt so sorry for her because she spent so much to reciprocate by having all this at her place when it was on ABC because she is always going to others who have cable. However, we all agreed if it was NFL (football) this would never happen. Yep, we did all turn to NBC. ABC is rude with no compawssion. Everyone was shocked they dropped NASCAR for dumb and stupid videos.

  105. Maureen on
  106. You sure do know NASCAR young lady because you are 100% correct. They always cater to certain drivers like Carl Edwards and Tony Stewart. NASCAR took the race from poor young Ragan Smith and gave it to Tony Stewart when Tony honestly came in second and he knew it. Tony was shocked NASCAR gave him the race; why? Because NASCAR has crooked officials and is no long the exciting and honest race it has been.

  107. Maureen on
  108. PLEASE DO NOT WATCH ABC AGAIN……PLEASE! If everyone would protect and tune in other channels ABC will get rid of those dumb idiots they now have in charge; just like those dumb stupid videos they watch and broadcast. Let them keep running the dumb, stupid videos while we watch more useful fun-loving and All-American TV. We always buy everything NASCAR advertises…..but, no more! Why? Because they are on ABC! DO NOT WATCH ABC. DO NOT BUY ANYTHING SOLD ON ABC. THANK YOU AMERICA

    [...] can read all the comments on the Phoenix Post Race Thread. I hope ABC gets their act together – or gets out of the business of NASCAR altogether. [...]

  109. Colleen on
  110. Tina, the reason that Jr ended up 10th in the points and not 8th at the end was because even though Jr moved up in position, so did the other drivers he was chasing in the points, which puts them ahead of Jr in points, hope that makes sense. As far as dumbest moves of the day, I have to say it was the 88 team yet again, I am a huge Jr fan but don’t get some of the calls they make, if you listened to Hotpass, Jr said to Tony Jr he didn’t understand why they went the direction they did, when they tried that in practice and it didn’t work, so why did they do it in the race? He commented again at the end of the race on Hotpass that same thing. I just don’t get why they did that, if it didn’t work that weekend in practice why the heck would they think it would work in the race???

  111. MrDuffy on
  112. The Network just showed the importance of NASCAR.
    What comes around goes around.
    NASCAR is on the other side of the hill now.

  113. Marie Council on
  114. I’d have really been ticked off if I didn’t have ESPN2. Had it been football, ABC would not have done that. And for a stupid show like “Funniest Videos?”

    As for getting tired of Jimmie and if people are tired of him why isn’t he getting booed like Kyle Busch would? Well, for one thing, I like Jimmie so I’m not tired of him. As for his not getting booed like Kyle Busch, he is not an ass like Kyle Busch!!

  115. Betty Pierson on
  116. You said it!

  117. Betty Pierson on
  118. What can we all do to see that ABC doesn’t get anymore races? Seriously, can we sign petitions or anything to let NASCAR know HOW SERIUOUS THIS IS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  119. Maureen on
  120. I agree. Let’s all get petitions against ABCTV. People responsible for cutting something as big as NASCAR off end of the race and putting on illiterate stupid videos should be FIRED!!! YES……….FIRED!!!!! Only way NASCAR should let ABCTV have NASCAR ever again is to charge them TRIPLE and then some. Charge ABCTV 100 billion…….plus dollars if they ever want NASCAR back. They DO NOT DESERVE our big American race. ABCTV……..ugh! Away! Away!

  121. Maureen on
  122. Hooray for Dave! 100% in agreement. Fire the person/people responsible for this horror against America’s NASCAR. Football would knock this group out of the profession. All networks should get together and ban this group from the media forever. Putting them on the top of Montoya’s car is the best I’ve heard yet.

  123. myrna perkins on
  124. It was a real cheap shot. I must say I was amazed at the class Dale Jarrett and gang used in telling us about it…..not that he isn’t always the coolest guy in the house. I have cable so I didn’t even think of the ones who don’t. Sorry, guys.

    GOJIMMIEGO….you are the greatest, bar none.
    Even if I had to move the Jr Johnson stuff off my shelf to make room for yours!!!!!

  125. Racer 3 on
  126. All you Bush Suckers are Just POOR LOSERS!!! Time to stop complaining and Quit fear mongering it DID NOT WORK BEFORE THE ELECTION ND WHO THE H–l CARE WHAT YOU LOSERS HAVE TO SAY???????????

  127. Maureen on
  128. PLEASE STAY ON FOX. FOX KNOWS NASCAR BETTER THAN ANY OTHER STATION. NEVER HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT (THAT NIGHTMARE ABCTV AGAIN)……..PLEASE DROP ABCTV OR A LOT OF US WILL BE DROPPING OUR VIEWING OF NASCAR. PERSONALLY, SIX OF US HAVE PLANS TO GO AWAY NEXT WEEKEND WHICH WE MADE AFTER SUNDAY’S ABC CUTOFF OF NASCAR. INTERESTING TO SEE HOW ABCTV RATINGS NEXT WEEKEND OF NASCAR WILL BE.

  129. Racer 3 on
  130. It’s TIME TO CLONE CHAD KNAUS

    I have been a jimmie johnson fan since he started.I don’t think you can be immune to the class he and the entire organization has shown.I ,for one,don’t think NASCAR should punish brains and organization on any team.I do think that the cheating has gone too far.start parking the entire team and suspend them for the next race.I don’t care who the team is,do it.Maybe the punishment sould be 3 races up to the chase and one race during the chase for chase drivers.The 3 race penalty should apply to all non chase drivers during the chase.I don’t know NASCAR’S costs for random inspections,but all drivers should be subject to inspections after each race.I also think the point system should be based on finish positions and eliminate points for 1 lap led and most points led.A good driver can finish 2nd and earn more points than the winning driver and possibly win a championship.Let’s be fair to all.

  131. rollie on
  132. IF ABC WASN’T GOING TO SHOW THE RACE IN ITS ENTIRETIY why would they show all of Funniest Videos ?????

    I THINK THAT NASCAR NEEDS TO DROP ABC BECAUSE THAT WAS UNCALLED FOR AT THE END OF THE RACE.NASCAR HAS TO RESPECT THE PEOPLE THAT MADE THE SPORT NOT THE MONEY BAGS THAT WANT TO CONTROL IT. AND THAT GOES FOR NASCAR REP’S. AS WELL AS THE OTHERS DON’T WORRY WHO BUMPED WHO THAT’S RACIN AND THE DAM FINES ARE GARBAGE ALL THEY WANT IS MONEY.ALOT OF PEOPLE I KNOW IS FEDUP WITH THE WAY NASCAR IS RUNNING THE SHOW.SO THEY BETTER GET THEIR ACT TOGETHER BEFORE IT GOES BY THE WAY.

  133. Cecil Sloan on
  134. I think the american auto makers should pull out of nascar there is no part on the car thats made buy anyone of tham. I also think that nascar desides who wins anyway, jimmy johnson and nascar both fake.

  135. barbara on
  136. Well, hello, again, YES, that was something, them leaving the air, I thought something was wrong with my set, however, I should have known better. It ALL BOILS DOWN TO THE FACT THAT ABC WANTED MORE MONEY AND NASCAR WOULD’NT PAY UP….. Anyway,I HAD CABLE ALONG TIME AGO AND EVERYTHING I WANTED TO WATCH, WAS A PAY-PER VIEW, THEN WHEN YOU GOT THERE—-THE MACHINES (WHICH UNBEKNOWINGS TO YOU)WERE BROKE,NO PLUGS, BLAH,BLAH, BLAH. SO, I AM A HAPPY CAMPER NOW BECAUSE I HAVE DIRECT TV, SO I
    SWITCHED AND I HAVE THE NFL,SPEED VISION AND IT DOESN’T COST ME A PAY PERVIEW AND I GET EVERYTHING I LIKE FOR LESS——I MUST ADD THAT I GET MORE CHANNELS, TOO. SO GET A GRIP AND GET DIRECT TV….For those of you who have a truck, camper, or car, you can put a receiver in there for $5.00 extra dollars, if you have the connections, of course, the wire hookups run different prices,depending on how much you already have.
    About Jimmie Johnson, I COULD’NT THINK OF A BETTER CANDIDATE OTHER THAN JUNIOR FOR CHAMPION.
    He has a nice personality, gets along with his orther drivers, including Jeff, haha and HAS A GREAT CREW CHIEF,KNAUS,what more could you ask for. Although I do like JEFF (31)AND HE WOULD BE A GOOD CHAMPION, ALSO.
    SO I LEAVE YOU GUYS AND GALS WITH THIS NOTE—-GET DIRECT TV.. good luck to Jimmie Johnson and the 48 team. grammy 66

  137. barbara on
  138. I HAVE SOMETHING ELSE TO SAY, ALSO IT WAS NOT MONTOYA, IT WAS KENNSETH AND HE SHOULD BE FINED. HE HAS A BAD ATTITUDE, I REMEMBER ONE RACE WHERE JR WAS DOWN A LAP AND HE WOULDN’T LET HIM BY…. GIVE ME A BREAK, WE DON’T NEED HIM AS A CHAMPION, OR KYLE BUSH, AND LET’S ADD CARL EDWARDS–BOOHOO BOOHOO, I BELIEVE THOSE 3 SHOULD BE CALLED THE BOOHOO BOYS. grammy 66

  142. What’s the deal????Does ESPN own ABC??? Tonite on NASCAR NOW on ESPN they issued a disclaimer stating that they gave us plenty of warning that they were going to change channels. They brushed off the people who don’t have cable like they were nonexistent….which they are to the station owner.

    ABC and ESPN are both owned by The Walt Disney Company.

  143. cat on
  144. Give the Nascar corprate office a call they record and discuss all topics if they receive enough calls. Go to ABC site and complain as long as we are silent we will be treated as switching to espn was fine by us.

  145. Lana Pence on
  146. Well, everyone seems to have pretty much the same gripe and rightfully so. I have ESPN2 and got to see the end of the race but I know how you felt because when Ike hit and abig part of the nation was without power, well Cincinnati got hit pretty good. Out in Indiana where I live we got the power back on shortly but the ABC affiliate in Cincinnati chose to show the same thing over and over during the entire race. I too think this should be televised to the fullest unless of course there would be a National Disaster. Now, my question is…Who actually reads these complaints. Does Nascar and if they do, do they care? I would hope there would be some kind of link directly into Nascar especially since the fans are what is making them wealthy.

    If anybody knows how to contact, sign a petition or whatever, please post it so that we can get the programming we deserve. What other sporting event besides the Super Bowl has such a vast number of people in attendance as the races? There was only 84 hits on this site since Sunday. Perhaps the change should start here…

    Yes, I am sick to death of Jimmie Johnson but I might add, I am not surprised. All we heard all season by the sportscasters was a three-peat for Johnson. He was 3rd in points after Richmond, 2nd after New Hampshire and Dover and 1st the rest of the way. I believe he will continue to win as long as Chad Knaus works the system. We all know he is not beyond cheating to win.

    Johnson is a good driver I will give him that but there are a lot of very good drivers in the field every week. If you dont agree with what I am saying, take a look at the 18. Seems he couldn’t lose during the season but for some reason or other (Right) he fell apart in the chase. Can anyone explain that? All you Jimmie Johnson fans don’t go fanatic on me but I think it was fixed and they threw the flip-flop boy in there just to make it look good. How surprised are we going to be when the 48 wins it all Sunday?

    AND THAT IS MY OPINION….

  148. ABC would have never cut off a football game!
    Some of us don’t get ESPN and this is our only source of viewing the race. Extremely disappointed…

  152. I think abc did the right thing, The cheaters were going to win any way, The cheaters being Jimmy,Chad and Nascar I won’t be watching the last race its already been decided.
