Dug into my diecast collection and found that I do, indeed, have a Miccosukee #09 Cup car... http://photo.ricecop.com/pics/jfinch09.jpg

Eight fans were injured and two had to be flown to hospital in helicopters. I don't know if I'd call that the "best finish." I don't think Keselowski should be allowed to keep that win -- there is a line of dangerous driving that you simply cannot cross, but as Edwards said, NASCAR isn't going to change the rules until somebody gets killed.

The two that were flown by helicopter were for a cut lip and a bruised jaw. They used the helicopter for those two simply because of traffic concerns. People can get more seriously injured in the stands of a hockey or baseball game.

It was not dangerous driving... Nascar laid down the rule that if you go below the yellow line whilst attempting a pass, you get heavily penalized. Keselowski simply kept the car going straight. He didn't turn into Edwards. He didn't intentionally hit him. Edwards was blocking him like crazy and turned down across Keselowski's hood. It was entirely Edwards' fault.

I thought the wings on the COTs were supposed to keep them on the ground? I guess that only applies when going forward :P

#4, It's hard for aerodynamics to keep a car on the ground when another car actually punts it into the air (Ryan Newman's #39 was just in the wrong place at the wrong time to deliver that perfect punt)

Holy shit. Imagine the massacre that would happen if the fence gave way or wasn't there.

#6, Dale Earnhardt Sr. once said, "Put the grandstands in the infield, take away the catchfence, and let us just race"...

#3, Name any other racing series where you can deliberately knock another car out of the way and still be given the win.

#8, He didn't knock Edwards. Edwards tried knocking Keselowski out and took himself out.
