Title: Cup Race from Michigan
Post by: Cheryl on June 21, 2004, 03:08:40 AM
Man!  It was great to see some different names up front today!  Jarrett, Marlin, Sadler, Nemechek, Gaughan, Wallace.  Even if they didn't hold on for the win.

And, to tell you the truth, I feel like Newman just has another "tainted" victory (like last fall at Dover) when he only got back on the lead lap through the pity pass.  

For some reason, I've noticed MRN never even mentions that rule exists.  They kept acting like it was so remarkable that Newman "worked his way back to the lead lap."  Not my idea of working for it, if NASCAR gives it to them.  And, I didn't even realized Kahne had gotten it too.  I knew he was as low as 34th at one point, but never realized he'd been lapped.  Jeesh!  That kind of ruins the integrity of the first two finishers if you ask me.

I really wanted to see Marlin or Jarrett get the victory!  Those guys both really needed a win.
