Its NASCAR's Fault!

Carl Edwards causes "The Big One' and somehow it is all of NASCAR's fault, at least according to Jack Roush it is.

 

In an interview after the race Jack said, "Carl wound up pushing harder on Greg than he could stand. NASCAR had set that up by allowing people to push all day. It was real clear to me and I think it was clear to everybody, including Carl, that if you weren't willing to push the car in front of you, then you couldn't advance as well as somebody else would that was doing the pushing." - please not the part that I bolded and put in italics.

 

With Jack you'll find that no matter what happens it will always be someone else's fault.

 

At least Carl was man enough to owe up to it himself, regardless of what Jack was saying.

 

Carl said, "You do the best you can to move as far forward as possible. I was just pushing Greg as hard as I could. It's my fault and I apologize to everybody caught up in that wreck. We just got in exactly the wrong spot there going into [Turn] 3 and [Biffle] got real loose and that was just the way it went," Edwards said. "It's my fault."

 

"I was worried about the idiots here," he continued, "and I was the guy that caused that one."
