5th is unbelievable with all that going on.... stayed home. Good thing this year would have stunk with that fog and all! The confetti stuck to Johnsons car - that was funny looking. I bet Lowes called to have Nascar clean the car. The gimmick is to roll it off from Winners Circle to Daytona USA but this year they had to modify it some haha.

My question is: How long will Hendrick be allowed to cheat before they get the same treatment as other cars. Ganassi and Gibbs have had cars IMPOUNDED and kept by NASCAR for pre race rules infractions inthe past. This is not anywhere near the first time in the past two seasons the hendrick cars have failed post or pre race inspection.

Even if Knaus is supended, big deal, this race was all about just putting four tires on when the caution flag flew, I don't think I saw a wedge wrench in the car all day. Take the car away and the results may have been different.

I am not a "hater" against Johnson or Knaus as he referred to after the win, but just sick of Hendrick getting unfair treatment.

Brandon, I hear you did a better 'Nascar Style' Interview after your win at the Bird's than JJ did today... Oh, I guess I'm "hating"

Anyway, I agree with what youre sayin there. Tony had a car impounded and kept because something didnt measure right on the rear window of the car, and Nascar couldnt figure out what JGR had done to the car...they still have that car, and as far as I know, have not made any effort in paying for it, or returning it.

BTW, did anyone else hear one of the crew members say something about the car making weight now, since it had all that confetti on it? LOL, that was funny considering they got caught last weekend.

I will always remember the 'Birds '06 as Drew's "Coming Out Party". If you know Drew, you kinda just assumed it anyway.

The reason why the 48 car wasn't impounded was because it was an easy fix to make the car legal again, where as the other cars required major reworking.
