Contact between the cars of Kyle Busch and Dale Earnhardt Jr. basically too the win away from Jr. Was contact intentional? Was the caution caused by Hamlin intentional?

For some reason, the whole Gibbs team is being allowed to get away with everything this year. I really think Nascar is liking the villian vs. hero setup that they have going with Busch and Earnhardt Jr. Frankly, Hamlin has done numerous things this year that have been questionable, and I can't believe Nascar hasn't fined him or put him on probation. Considering Jr. had a large role in Hamlin even getting to Nascar, I'm surprised at how Hamlin has been acting towards him.

I'm not sure if it took the win from Junior. Busch looked very strong and might well have passed him anyway. If that is the case, it took the win from Busch. That being said, I think it was just the product of hard racing. I think Busch drove in hard, in an attempt to drive by Junior. Junior, on the other hand, looked to try to pinch Busch down, to keep him from getting by. So, I don't think either can blame the other.

Not sure on this as I didn't get to watch the actual race. My husband told me about it though and I don't think it was intentional because these guys race hard every week and cars are tuned to race the same it takes the drivers to outwit the others. These guys are for the most part friends with some being family and i don't think it is ever intentional.
