From the Marbles - NASCAR

For those of you distraught at the accounting-firm state of much of NASCAR lately, you've got to love what's gone on this weekend at Homestead. First it was Denny Hamlin and Brad Keselowski throwing down at Saturday night's Nationwide race, bringing to an end -- for now -- 18 months of brawling and yapping, both on and off the track.

And Sunday night, Juan Pablo Montoya and Tony Stewart decided to get a little froggy with each other. First, Smoke turned into JPM, knocking him off the track and prompting Montoya to scream that NASCAR should kick Smoke out of the race altogether. But JPM's crew diligently worked to get their driver back on the track, and when they did, this happened:

Montoya got tagged with a two-lap penalty, but since he was dozens of laps down already, that was about as effective as tossing ice cubes in the ocean. Neither Stewart nor Montoya spoke immediately after the race, and chances are both are heading home to cool out. Any chance this will spill over into next season? Probably not, but the fact that drivers are getting saucy is a good way to close out the year, yes?
