Sometimes the rules just have to be ignored

So, today the Busch series ventured north up into Canada to visit Montreal. The double dippers flew between Pocono and Montreal, some arrived on time for the European-style qualifying for the Busch Series event at the magnificent road course (really, breath-taking track). But then it got really boring.

It was about 70 laps of boring, change-the-channel, road-course racing, but then something must have snapped in Robby Gordon's head as he was spun about by Ambrose as he attempted and failed to pass for the lead. Just moments before the caution had been thrown due to a crash in the backfield. NASCAR said that Robby needed to restart 13th, but Robby disagreed. He believed that since he was in second when the caution flag was thrown -- he should still be in second. But NASCAR claimed that he wasn't going at a cautious speed when the flag came out he should be put at the tale end of the longest line -- 13th.

But Robby believed he should be in second so he ignored NASCAR and his crew chief telling him to get into the right position. The green flag fell for the rest of the field, but Robby received the dreaded black flag for not being in the right position at the restart. But that didn't stop Robby, who would immediately spin out Ambrose after the restart, and then continue on pretending like he was leading the race -- despite still receiving the black flag each time by. As Robby later stated "They said 'here's the rule book,'I play by their rules. I guess this was one of those [exceptions for rare instances]." Just a bit too bad NASCAR didn't agree with Robby. The only thing that would have made this better would be Tony Stewart and his gigantic foot in mouth disease to be involved in the whole situation.

But the real race for the win was behind Robby where Kevin Harvick and hometown favorite Patrick Carpentier battled it out for the actual win. Harvick would come away with the win -- but our story doesn't end there.

Instead it ends with not one, not two, but three burnouts. One by the guy who won the race, one by the runner-up and one by the guy who thought he won the race. Yes, probably the most burn-outs you'll ever see in a NASCAR race.

Also, probably the most amusing debacle that could have occurred in the final five laps for NASCAR's debut in Canada. Hell, it was probably the most crazy set of events to occur in the final five laps of a Busch series or Nextel Cup Series race in a long time.

I don't think the Nextel Cup Series race at Pocono will be able to have quite the level of crazy in it tomorrow, but it still should be a good race. Pre-show starts at 1pm EST, which means that the race most likely starts at around 2:45pm EST on ESPN.

I don't know how NASCAR could ask someone to go at a cautious speed at the time the yellow flag comes out, because aren't they still racing UNTIL the yellow drops? Good for Robby.

I happened to be on vacation last weekend and missed the inaugural race for ESPN, but was able to watch the Pocono 500 this afternoon. Was it just me or did anybody else have a hard time staying awake with the terrible commentary and play-by-play announcing by ESPN's Open Wheel Team??? I originally thought Rusty Wallace just sucked calling the IRL races, but I guess he just wasn't cut out to call racing all together. I guess, at the end of the day, all I wanted to hear was DW giving me one "boogity-boogity-boogity" that too much to ask for?

Designed by Sergio Lozano in 1995, the Air Max 95 has become one of the most loved sneakers that Nike has ever produced. Stated many times before,
the inspiration for the shoe is the human anatomy. The midsole represents the spine, graduated panels resemble muscles, lace loops are the ribs, and the mesh for the skin.
At the time of its release many were skeptical of the Air Max 95 because of the price, yet it was never a factor.
