I don't think it was just Henzler who got pugged...Liddell got quite a squeeze as well...enough to break his suspension and crash into another Porsche. Then a Viper got "tapped" and left the course...that was blatant and the driver of the Caddy should have been black flagged immediately. When the 'Vette pushed Henzler wide I cried BS but at least Henzler had the chance to come back...for a moment. The he got squashed. That's when I threw something at the TV....

I like the Grand Am's rules about no touching/bumping. That just makes sense. I also like Champ Car's rules about no blocking...that also makes sense. The problem with the Speed "GT" is that those sedans are so much heavier. Yes, the balance the performance envelope with regulated engine mods, etc. But in the end it's still a heavy car vs. a lighter car. So if there's contact, guess who "wins" and guess who suffers...
