I realize that I was getting sleepy by the time the last 100 laps came around last night, and I remember thinking "Why are they telling Kurt Busch to go to the Nascar hauler", but I don't remember hearing anything from the Tower of Babble about Kurt Busch having any issues with the Nascar officials during the race.

Help me out, folks.  Did Larry, Darrell, and his other brother Darrell say something about these 'issues' and I just missed it?  Or was this another case of Fox and Nascar editing what they choose to tell us over the air?  I don't remember hearing that Sterling broke an engine, either.  Was I just too sleepy to notice, or what?

He took the No. 97 Ford into the garage so his crew could make enough repairs for Busch to continue racing.

Later in the race, NASCAR said Busch moved into the wrong position on the track under caution. Officials ordered him to stop and get in line where he was supposed to be, but Busch refused.

He was sent into the pits for a two-lap penalty, and NASCAR officials took offense to the language he used over the radio. They ordered him to turn his engine off, and he responded my revving it.

He also tossed a water bottle out of his window that hit the official in his pit.

Busch was then summoned to meet with NASCAR after the race. Although series officials looked less than pleased with the champion, Busch emerged from their hauler with a huge grin on his face, but nothing to say.

Yes, I read all that on the internet this morning.  Was ANY of this referred to during the race broadcast last night?  I can't believe I missed it, so I'm wondering if Fox/Nascar are censoring what  information fans watching on TV have available...like waiting so long to mention the red flag last week.

But none of this was mentioned on the TV broadcast.  I know I wasn't asleep!

I can't wait for your first book.  Maybe we can collaborate somehow.
