    If it were Hamlin not Jr

    Of course he does, that is Kyle. He and Jr had been into one another, even before Denny's tire started to go down. Jr said on the radio that he couldn't hold his car down low, so he took the high line. Kyle could drive hard into the corner and get under him, but Jr would get him on the straight aways. You knew that it was just a matter of time with those two.

    Jr was holding Kyle down which made him loose, but Kyle being Kyle didn't back out of it but turned his wheels to catch the car. If Jr goes up, Kyle goes by, if Kyle doesn't turn his wheel he looses the car. I don't see it as intentional, but not give and take either.

    I was also at the race and saw several times where guys gave way so as not to cause a wreak. Jeff Gordon could have wreaked Denny early in the race when he got his car in a bad place on the back stretch, but he gave him room. It happens to all drivers, some are more generous than others. If he is racing Martin, he can get away with that move, but with Kyle you got to know that it is risky.

    Also there was no conspiracy to give Kyle position. Denny and his crew chief were discussing whether to come in or not. They were hoping that the tire would either hold long enough or that if it didn't that there would be a caution. It was a gamble, but could have worked. The problem was that Nascar did not throw a caution, so when he just stopped to draw the caution, he was penalized. To Denny he has nothing to lose because that is exactly what would have happened if he comes into the pits.
