Today When I did my usual search of anything new in the world of Nascar I found an article claiming that Dale Earnhardt Jr. didn't have the right to blame David Reutimann for an incident on Sunday at Loudon.
I beg to differ.
I understand Earnhardt has made his fair share of mistakes on track, but I don't recall (from what I have heard/seen) Earnhardt Jr. ever wrecking two cars in the same race.
Well guess what David Reutimann wrecked Jeff Burton and Dale Earnhardt Jr. on Sunday. The only difference was that Burton changed tires and kept going, while Earnhardt's 88 machine was literally torn to pieces.
I would like to say now that I have never heard nor have I seen a driver "accidentally" wreck two different guys in one race.... its just not normal.
I'm not saying Reutimann is a bad driver or should be docked points, but it was obvious he got scared after seeing smoke off of Denny Hamlin's car and slammed the brakes, but somethings got to give!
David Reutimann asked his crew chief to give a public apology. Why couldn't he do it himself? His crew chief isn't the one driving the car, David is. Is he scared of Dale Jr.? I don't blame him if he is, I would be too after the interview Dale Jr. gave (I'm joking.)!
