Without having to look it up, how many times has Kyle Busch made the chase?

If only Jimmie had trouble on the front straight instead of turn 4 he might have kept his car together. ...oh well.

I like Brad.

Once, I think.. I ask, what happen to Carl? wow.. massive swing or what, smoke is a bit of a disappointment too.. and poor Clint, and luckily the Keseler has been a real dynamo since his major wreck a couple years ago.. but he could have as easily have got caught up on that Flash BooYaaa crash.. and JJ blowin’ a t’ar .. hard to predict on newly paved tracks and such as to what will happen and to who.. OH well.. Luck shines on who it will.

Jeff is just a little guy, he'd better be careful.

I don't recall seeing him in victory lane.

Tbe $100k fine for Gordon was a joke. That's like the average person paying $100.

I'd like to see Clint drag the little worm out of his car and pummel him. Not likely to happen, though.

Barking? Did you say barking? If there’s any barking on this thread I want a part of it.

Speaking of barking where’s that Bender County fella??

Go Blue Deuce!!!

Had a great time at PIR last week. The place was packed all three race days. The crowd was different though. Lots of people were in a sour mood like Jeff Gordon was. I think it was because of the Kenyan stealing another election and continue to wreck the country. 10 times the number of smokers than normal. NASCAR fans are not happy campers. Lots of Bars and Stars and "Don't Tread On Me Flags." Anti-Barry Benghazi bumpers stickers and signs. Didn't see one Obama/Biden 2012 bumper sticker anywhere. Great race though.

Never been to a race, BUT, it’s on my bucket list if I ever get into the top 50% I’m going to rent a motor home and camp out int the center.

Give ‘em helmets nutcups and pugil sticks and let them settle it fair and square.. all of them are athletic and tough as nails.. well,, some are..

The sport has essentially been neutered, cleancut drivers abound, maybe they need to race a couple races on dirt tracks ,, hard to say,, cookie cutter tracks have been the order of the day for awhile.. returning to one’s roots can be a good thing.. but who are we kidding.. It’s a hugh business, basically a family run affair, if yur lucky, yur in the family and may have say where it goes from here..

2013 is a whole new ball game across the board car-wise.. some shuffling of drivers will happen but I’m not real optimistic about CoTank’s future offering.. COTank II .. we’ll see.

as to Clint, don’t miss him on Duck Dynasty.. ;-}

Zero cars running at the end of the race? I’m used to trick questions from he who shall not be named so my immediate thought is - duh, it’s the end of the race - no cars are running. If that is not a trick question then I’ll request that tubebender send you some garlic and red’s finest to easy your sorrows.

I feel like a senile old man after the Duck’s game last night. Ouch.

Race is a low priority today. Church, shopping and a family event will push the race “watch” time back to ‘bout 7PM for us. Baring a disaster the #2 will win; the ‘Raiders will be running:

Kyle
Joey
Marcus
Eric

And may the schwartz be with us all...

Two near fatal aircraft crashes will do that to a guy.
He’s lucky to be alive in any shape.

Back before they combined engine shops with Yates, I toured the Roush engine shop in Motown. They had about 300 motors in rotation, but there was a small section where they built the engines for Jack’s P-51 Mustang.

Lots of good teams with one loss. I don’t think ND had a tough schedule. Not like a SEC team does. Gators lost one to the Georgia Bulldogs, probably with some GA help from snappydogx2.
