Over the next few days, fans and media alike debated the possibility of team orders by Michael Waltrip Racing. Most drivers have remained quiet on the topic, but Jeff Gordon, Brad Keselowski and Kevin Harvick offered a glimpse into their view.
Was feeling pretty bad about missing the #Chase but after seeing all the details coming out now I feel even worse for @RyanNewman39.
The suspicious activity by Michael Waltrip Racing wasn't the only incident on the night that got people fired up. The final restart of the night also got social media buzzing, with many claiming Carl Edwards jumped the restart and beat race leader Paul Menard to the line - mainly Menard's crew chief Slugger Labbe.
I guess it is ok for 2nd place to beat 1st place to the line by a car length after getting door slammed. #ballsandstrikes. That is all IMO
Finally, Jimmie Johnson wasn't the only one to welcome a new addition to the family. A big congratulations to Travis Pastrana and wife Lyn-Z on the birth of their daughter. It's a safe bet she will never say, "Man, my dad is soooo boring."
