ARE YOU IN A NASCAR FEUD?

Martinsville showed what happens when folks stop being polite and start getting real.  The gloves came off and surprising feuds simmer to a boil.  Matt Kenseth found himself smack dab in the middle of a Jeff Gordon feud.  A simple bump can become a NASCAR fight.

The way to prevent it is to check every part, even the 10-cent ones. And then check them again.A car is almost ready to load into a team’s transporter for a race weekend after the final scaling and setup is complete. The crucial safety check remains.
