So, basically don't race me hard, right? If you go to the edge, you are going to go too far on occasion. I think a veteran who still hasn't won this season probably pushed harder than he might have otherwise. Is the message, don't push that hard around me, or I will **** with you? Does that even deserve the mythical "pay back?"
Racing hard is not using the other car as a leaning post.

I know you are privy to taking the side of a driver who blows through closed pit road exits without concern for track and garage staff beyond the cones, but come on.

In general racing terms, yes it is. Eight wheels are always better than four. Believe the statement has been made at least once a year since '49. Dale Sr. said it almost every other race.

and Dale Sr. was a controversial driver nearly his entire career. He was never universally adored by the fans and other drivers until after his death. If Harvick is gonna make moves like that he has to at least win.

Still do not believe that Harvick used that tactic on Chase, he would have been just a susceptible of cutting his own tires as he would have done to Chase.

Still wrong. The tailpipes jet out the passenger side.

Harvick is a champion and has been in the sport for 2 decades. He knew exactly what his car was going to do and just got in over his talent.
