I wish my seat at the track was this close!

Remember when a 'spin and go' on a road course was no biggie? A local caution is all that it warranted. Today's NASCAR world has once again proved that an independent officiating crew needs to work that races. One without an agenda to create a show by abandoning long-standing road course rules.

 I felt the same way during the spin by a driver I forgot. I thought he got back on track and going  forward so no caution, then it waved. They had to bring Montoya close to the front some how.

The full-course cautions for a minor off-track excursions started early in the race.  I can't remember who brought out the first caution, but even then I thought it was absurd NA$CAR called a full-course caution when in the past they would've simply have done a local yellow.  That one didn't even have anything to do with Montoya, just simply more of NA$CAR's manipulation to keep the field closer together.

Was it Brad Coleman, the young driver from Texas?  I think so.
