Well, here we are at the 1st race of the Chase. So with 10 races to go:
Katie will start off with Tony Stewart and Denny Hamlin.
Hey Speedy! Can Denny really be called a Darkhorse!?! He is in the Chase after all...LOLI'll go with Kurt to win and my darkhorse will be Dale Jr. Going with my boys today!
Hi, Katie!Thanks for having us.Tony and JPM
Hey Kristen-Who's your darkhorse to win the championship?Did you see in the pre-race that Penske is only letting Pat and Kurt together on race weekends? That's just stupid.
Oh, I thought it was darkhorse for the race!! LOLThen my answer is JJ to win the Champ and Kurt is my darkhorse.Pat is only involved in the 2009 stuff - he is in the shop on Tuesdays but the rest of the time he is only communicating with the guys via email/calls etc. THey are a pretty tight crew and the car chief Jeffery THousand is super experienced so my guess is they will be ok. I did find it funny what Rusty said about Penske keepign the secrets from Pat - when it was Pat that brought them all the secrets! LOL
GREETING FRIENDS, HAVE TO GO WITH TONY FOR THE OVER ALL AND CARL AS THE DARK HORSE. KRIS WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT HOT OR NOT THIS WEEK BASED JUST ON THE CHASE RACERS, SOMETHING OF A CHANGEGUNAQUAT
That sounds good GUNNY but I would wait and see you might not have enough Nots from teh Chasers and/or someone outside the Chase might win...
How the heck did STremme get past Kurt? What the heck is going on with that 12 team?
YEAH YOU ARE RIGHT, WOULDN'T IT BE A KICK IF JR. WINS
A kick and a half!!
DOES ANYONE HAVE AN ANSWERTOTHIS QUESTION. SEVERAL YEARS AGO WE HOSTED A NATIONAL YOUTH BASSEBALL TOURNAMENT AND WE HAD THE CHAMPIONS FROM MEXICO AS ONE OF THE TOURNAMNET TEAMS. WE WERE TOLD THAT ACCORDING TO PRTOCOL THAT WE AHD TO PLAY BOTH THE US NATIONAL ATHEM AND ALSO THE NATIONAL ATHEM OF MEXICO, HOW IS IT THAT WE GET AWAY WITH NOT HAVING TO DO THE SAME THING FOR MONTOYA AND AMBORSE. AM NOT BITCHIN' JUST WONDERING ABOUT IT, THE INFORMATION WE GOT WAS FROM THE PUBLIC AFFAIRS OFFICE AT FT. SILL OKLAHOMA SO WOULD THINK THEY MIGHT HAVE AN IDEA
I have no answer for that GUNNY. Makes no sense why we play the Canadian anthem to me.On another note, Kurt is flying and the fastest car on the track ... woot!
Why is Kyle on TV so much today? Is he in the Chase? Or is he the only car being passed?
Let me clarify above -- Either we should play all the anthems of the participants (which means we should start a good 3 hours ahead since the crews should be considered too) or we should just play the National Anthem and call it good.
Hey Gene - I think ESPN is hoping he will wreck one of the many chasers around him...
Hah, that's what I thought. I guess he will have to disappoint ABC again this week.
KRIS, KNEW WAHT YOU MEANT AND WE MAY HAVE GOTTEN CAUSGHT IN IT BECAUSE FO THE MIL. PROTOCAOL THING, ANYWAY WE ENDED UP HAVING TO PLAY BOTH , FLY BOTH FLAGS , TEH WHOLE NINE YARDS, AND I THINK ALL TEH FOLKS FEELING SORRY FOR THE THORN. AND I BELIEVE HE WILL WRECK SOMEONE TODAY IF HE GETS THE CHANCEGUNAQUAT
Looking ahead about 3 hours....how will NASCAR screw over JPM today?
Nap time already?
I am still awake! Bouncing between here and twitter when its commercial so I still know what is going on...All chasers and then stremme?? WTH?
all this single file racing...oy...
OH! Kahne blows up! BUMMER for him...could be all that hubbub at the Petty engine shop closing.
Guess Miller Lite wins the first race Beer Car Chase Challenge...Too bad for Kasey...
Nap time?? ZZZZZ.Will try to come back on later in the race.
IT'S A SHAME YOU WOULD THINK RICHARD PETTY WOULD TAKE BETTER CARE OF HIS PEOPLE, BUT I GUES MONEY DOES THAT KIND OF CRAP TO PEOPLE
Peeking in.. I found you
Hey Photo -- come back when you wake up!Agreed GUNNY - the entire engine department is leaving and no one in charge that is a total mess. I am sure Kasey is p.o'ed.
I missed the caution. Somehow I think I do't want to kow what happened?
Hey YEE!! How ya been??Sorry about your driver... =(
GREETINGS REN, SO GLAD YOU JUMPED IN HOW THE NEW JOB GOING
Runs true we worked all night on the set up for the 21 car (street stock) and dropped the tanny in qualifying last night
I knew I picked the right weekend to visit the girlfriend since I have never seen a good race at Loudon....ever, lol
**trannyrunning 17.20 too (field fastest last night.I'm doing ok new sort of job op is a mess but I'm ok with unemployment
My new employer has no start up capital so it is cscary and she is expecting much too much from me
Richard Petty has zilch to do with that team. He's a paid figurehead. That is all.
Hey Tez! Hi to the GF!Ouch, a double bummer this weekend for you Yee. Did you ever go on the road trip with Miss Thorn Busch?
You got that right Gene -- RP sold out big time!
I half caught a report today that Kasey is finishing the season with no salary ? So his crew gets paid and stays through? Did I hear that right?
We have taken a couple of roadtrips. It is a good escape on weekends. (we need another long one)
The Hamster is causing a bit of trouble-- bad idea
I think that story is associated with Reed Sorenson, not Kasey...Ouch - Hamster is not behaving!
WOOT!!! GO JUNNNNYYYYYYEEEEEERRRRRRR!!
Did I hear a scream for Junyer? What did he do? and how long will it last?lol
Off to grab some lunch...In-n-Out burger!!! YUM!!!Will be back...
I just caught part of the story, Kristen thanks for the info.You know how commontaters mix stories
Yee-Reed Sorenson is finishing the season without pay. It was either that or close up shop now which would have also put his crew out of work.
Oh now I'm hungry too!Kurt looks good despite the ****
I'll try this again....HELLO, EVERYBODY!
Picture perfect pit stop, David!lol
WTF #2!!!JK, that was pretty cool
Well, so far in this week's GGW race Kristen, Tez, and photo have already taken their cars to the garage.
Tony's back in the lead!!!!!
And there goes half of the GGW field.
Where is the GGW field posted?I had to go get burgers what did I miss?
I want some 'Estrada' sunglasses!
That's a great commercial but Carrot Top looks bad! Maybe they'll do away with the King!
Some redundant commontary
JR in the wall
another restart. Can't make MMartin Happy
And the Turtle Takes it!
F2 gets the perfect Trifecta!!
Not sure what to make of that race - good racing at the end tho. What the heck - no interviews with anyone?!? ABC/ESPN coverage sucks! They dont prioritize nascar at all...Sorry RA6AN! Trust me, Kurt didnt mean it. He was P.O'ed on the radio...Poor Junior =(
