Belt-In by Big Bigelow: NASCAR News Flash: Leader’s smash still OK | racing pole

did you see that? The 22 broke the 24 however the 22 was allowed to keep the win and the giant check.

Well, by a show of hands, how many of you didn’t think Joey Logano would smash William Byron to win the race? After all, NASCAR doesn’t just allow bumping and running that they seem to encourage.

Lugano hasn’t won a race in about a year and may need two wins to qualify for this year’s qualifiers. After climbing out of his car, he made fun of Byron hitting a wall in the last reboot. Television presenters hardly ever talked about it, but I think Lugano felt he had to justify his actions.

Byron then said, “He ran over everyone, so I don’t see what’s different. I mean, he was faster. He could have easily reached the left stern and loosened me, but he’s running there 10 miles an hour faster. He didn’t even barely make a corner, so no I know why he’s going in hard and kicking (expletive) out of you. It doesn’t make sense.”

Lugano said, “If you are willing to take the step to gain the initiative by doing so, drive another car into the wall, you have opened the door for revenge to victory. When you do, you have to see it coming and anticipate it too, which is why he slowly went into the corner And low, he knew he was coming.

“So yeah, that’s what I had to do. I won’t get pushed. I won’t get bullied. That’s how this works. This is how I’ve done this sport for years. Like I said, if it’s not, I’m not making that move. I’m going to race cleaner and try to be Make the movement in a different way.

“We are equal,” Lugano said. “We’re equal, man. You put me in the wall first. Like I said, the game started. At that point in my view it’s equal. If I chase him off the road for no reason there’s to win the race without ever doing anything to me in the past, which I didn’t He does in the past, and it’s not like he meant to fencing me. I don’t think he meant to shove me into the wall. The facts are what he did.”

William Byron and Ross Chastain are the only drivers in qualifying. The reason is that they have two wins. If 17 or more men win the race, the tie is on points.

So yes, someone might win one of the first 26 races and not be competing for the championship.
