NASCAR has moved on to Talladega Superspeedway, where the focus on Friday was on everything it takes to race around the fast Alabama track. But there was still a slight hangover from last week, when a pair of NASCAR calls altered the outcome of the race at Richmond. Carl Edwards was penalized for jumping a late restart, and a debris caution gave Kyle Busch the opening to take the win away from Tony Stewart. Both Edwards and Stewart said they had moved on from Saturday night's race, and NASCAR president Mike Helton insisted the series made the correct calls. Still, it wasn't lost on anyone that the controversy had people buzzing about NASCAR during what's otherwise been a stretch of unusually clean racing.
