We had controversy, confusion and even another new winner in 2012. But, I am getting ahead of myself. Let's go back to Friday night's Nationwide Series race first.

So a great job by them and, like we always tell you, winning goes a long way to cure all ills. Saturday night found us with cold weather, fast speeds and plenty of great racing under the lights at Richmond. Carl Edw...
