Yeah, they threw that around, but from what I read, Leffler's penalty was more because it was retaliation than isolated incident. But since I didn't see the race, I really don't know.

Jr would have been better off checking up , but Vickers was an idiot for that move , he's lucky the initial contact didn't cause the wreck .
While I don't agree with Vickers' decision, what he did was perfectly legal. And you said so yourself, Junior's best bet would have been to check up and get back in line for another pass, so the argument that Junior wasn't penalized because Vickers started it doesn't hold water. What Junior did was dangerous and he should have been penalized. But he wasn't, and on the next caution, got his lucky dog pass, and finished 27th.

The problem was at that point, they were both racing for the lucky dog pass, and racing the bad weather. Both made piss poor decisions.
Bad Things man, I mean bad things...
