    Kevin, can you and Budweiser top Brad and Miller Lite's victory celebration?

    How about that, the team he used to drive for finishes right behind him. Holy crap that was crazy.

    Bummed Newman didn't get it but give him credit, he picked the perfect time to actually be there when it mattered.


    Edit: I just realized that for the second day in a row, we're celebrating a championship from a team that didn't exist until this year.

    I hope Harvick gives a drunken interview on Sportscenter like BK did a couple years ago, you know, to plug the sponsor.

    I guess if Gordon couldn't win the title Harvick was the next most deserving.

    I'd like to see who won the championship without the chase nonsense.

    I would like to know who won if we only counted points for finishing positions that are prime numbers for the entire season.

    Holy crap, I just realized that. Wow how that just worked out.

    And funny enough I find something else ironic: That coke commericial Where they are In the store (The one with the Cutouts), there's three of the chase drivers right there together.

    Wow, I think Tony Stewart might have just pulled off the fastest post race dress down ever. You usually have to wait at least four interviews before you find one driver in street clothes.

    With all of the ups and downs, I really enjoyed this season. Now on to Abu Dhabi next week before we hit the off-season with little to no racing.

    Congrats Harvick!

    Hopefully Harvick wins next week and gets 3 wins in a row to finish the season out.

    Yup, then hibernation ensues...

    I had picked my three drivers in the beginning (Keselowski, Logano, Hamlin) and ended up with two of them in the end. Really ashamed to see what happened to Joey in the pits but even moreso for the crew member who is going to get the worst of it. Denny was probably stretching those tires to the end and those last few cautions scrubbed all the life off of them on restarts. And Keselowski.... what a horrible year at the end in Phoenix.

    I've never liked Kevin at all, and especially had no liking after Texas for walking away with clean hands. But NASCAR has by far lost me for any interest next season unless NBC/SN can turn me back....

    I just wonder why Newman didn't punt Kevin into the wall this time..

    What would a NASCAR thread be without baseless Conspiracy theories? :D

    Meanwhile, I believe as I predicted around March or whenever, Larson has walked away with Rookie of the Year.

    And I'm sorta glad this championship wasn't on the same weekend as the F1 Championship, Jenson Button got to watch this and Now Jeff Gordon will get to watch the F1 Finale.

    Funny I thought Childers had blown it for Harvick by going for four tyres instead of two like Newman did. All those late cautions definitely made that decision the right one. Tough luck for Denny, even though I'm not a massive fan of his, felt like he did have the best car of the final four, for most of the race.

    Anyway, congrats to Harvick and everyone at SHR. :tup:

    Also, don't forget. Keselowski was right about bringing Logano on board. given as how Logano was fighting for a championship and all.

    I get the feeling that Logano's jack operator won't have a job Monday morning.

    That or their jack supplier won't be getting any more orders from Penske. Possibly both could happen for that matter.
