What a move by Chastain on the last lap to get into the field of four. I haven’t watched nascar much in several years, but will have to say todays race was a good one.

There's sending it, and there's SENDING it.
Un-freakin-believeable to pin the throttle, stick it in 5th gear, and ride the wall.
(Everyone runs 3rd & 4th gear @ Martinsville).
Wow.

I have a different opinion. Looked cool and that was it.

That's not racing. It was reckless and dangerous driving. Had Keslowski spun in turn 3/4 and headed to the wall, getting crunched in the door by an idiot going 150+ would have been awesome. Or that thing tweaks left off the wall and hits others headed toward the pit road wall at 150+, yep good times. I want to say he ran the fastest lap ever in a cup car at that track on the last lap.

The pass through gate in turn 4 fails/collapses and you have a Waltrip at Bristol type car exploding deal.

Nascrap wants to talk about dangerous and what idgit wallace did to larson, this was just as bad or worse.

I told a friend they needed to address this nonsense when Edwards tried it at one of the crappy 1.5 mile tracks years ago. Laid out the same deal on the dangers. I believe there is a dangerous driving rule on the books, doubt it gets used and this is one of those cases it should be.

Reckless? Maybe, but the look on Hamlin’s face was priceless.

Neat move, will be replayed for many years. As a racer not sure I really care for it as it's not "racing". Best part was Hamlin didn't make the Final 4. Gibbs racing and Hamlin about the 2 worse in Nascar, other than Bubba.

Looked legal to me.....Bumped the guy pretty hard at the strip though...But short tracks are not always the prettiest of races....You wanna win, make your own luck.

1. I can't believe he had the balls to try it.
2. I can't believe it worked!

I was so happy to see Hamlin get knocked out. The cheers for Ross and boos for Denny showed what the crowd thought! LOL!

I have to respectfully disagree. No more dangerous than putting a bumper to someone and sending them into the wall.

Yep, outstanding race and exciting ending. The whole sport is dangerous and many put others at risk. If nascar dont like it they can alter the rules.

We all heard the crowd response. I was thinking of the "Days of Thunder" movie stunt stuff.

Listen to the motor and the impressive quick shifting trans.



STOP POTATO HATE!

Bump and run is a valid technique as long as you don't crash the other driver. This was WAY more dangerous than a bump and run. Putting a bumper to someone to intentional wreck them isn't racing either.

Ty gibbs in the xfinity race was an example of the bad bump and run.

They call it rubbing normally, I wonder if he said his throttle stuck wide open and it took him a awhile to remember to turn the ignition off whistling grin devil

Someone should've told that to Dale Earnhardt.

He hit Keselowski so hard it knocked all the weight out! LOL!

DQ'd after for being under weight.

Looks like the long way was the quick way. Why do they have all that race track up there if they don't want you to use it?

Between him and Bubbles Wallace it's kinda fun to watch again.
