All Hail JJ - Homestead Race Chat

Our last race chat of 2009! Its been a rough year on and off the track especially with us being homeless mid-season -- So glad we were all able to stick together and stay in touch.

The fat lady has pretty much sung on this season although I know a few of you are still hoping for MM to pull an upset. At least we can say to the whippersnapper youngins that will be watching the sport in 20 years that we saw JJ win it when...

Enjoy the race today even if its boring b/c we will all be going thru withdrawals soon enough!!

Let's go racin!

  2. Hi Kristen! Yeah, it's a lovefest with HMS. I did something else. I second those congrats to Allgaier for that ROY award.

  3. I just gotta say, I love Mike Rowe!

  4. Hey Jon -- I am doing a bunch of chores as well...we are re-arranging our entire living room!

    Kinda sad that Rick's niece is so sick...

    ReplyDelete
  5. I never heard of Mike Rowe before...Hi Ragan!

    Love your conspiracy theory overheard at Homestead. I cant believe team orders have not been to take JJ out - its the only way to beat him! I honestly think Sam and Stremme or BK could have done the trick!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Carl Edwards in-race reporter AGAIN?? WTH?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Hey RA6AN! Hope Rick Hendrick's niece gets well soon.

    Kristen, Mike Rowe hosts Dirty Jobs and the Deadliest Catch on Discovery Channel and is the voice of the Ford F-150 commercials.

    ReplyDelete
  8. He is so well spoken and probably wont curse too much! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  9. Ah, thanks for the explanation on Rowe, Jon. I dont watch either of those shows.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Methinks JJ's going to be out front for pretty much the whole race. He wants to put a "NO DOUBT" stamp on this one.

    ReplyDelete
  11. No problem Kristen. I watch both of those shows.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Mike Rowe is SF local. At one time, he sang opera. He's got an awesome voice.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Interesting Ragan -- who knew! =)

    Green Green Green and JJ gets his 5 points

    ReplyDelete
  14. Lets go Kurt! Go get 3rd from Jeffy G!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Anywho, I gots tons o stuff to get done today. Here's hoping for no snoozefest and that MM can beat the odds. See ya!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  20. Too bad about Ambrose's tire issues. Smoke on the move.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Is this going to be another JJ and Chad Show?

    ReplyDelete
  22. I think his day is done....saying he's down to about 2 cylinders :(

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hey Tez - what a bummer for Marcos! He will win one next year for sure...

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hey GUNNY! Loved your H/N this season you did a great job.


    Looks like Marcos car is a mess - battery issue or ??

    ReplyDelete
  26. Marcos is saying it's electrical.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Come on KURT!! This is the FIRST time ABC has even mentioned him...so LAME especially after how much better they did this year compared to last...

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hey Gunaquat. Smoke into the lead!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hi everyone-

    Just got home from church. My Sunday school class had its annual Christmas craft show today. So glad it's over for another year.

    So what have we missed?

    TONY TAKES THE LEAD!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. STEWART IS DOING ALL THE GOOD STUFF A WEEK LATE LOL LOL

    ReplyDelete
  31. We should have had a pool as to who would be the first to start and park...

    ReplyDelete
  32. KRIS,

    ON THIS LATE WEEK WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT A HOT OR NOT SEASON OVERVIEW RATHER THEN JUST THIS RACE

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hey Speedy! Did you get anything good at the craft show? Or did you make stuff? Voodoo dolls perhaps?

    ReplyDelete
  34. And...Michael McDowell wins! Those of you who had McDowell as the first start and parker come on up to claim your prize!!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Jon I think McDowell is already parked! LOL

    GUNNY - I would do Homestead and then a year end but that is just me...do what'cha like!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Kristen, I think he skipped town with his prize money!

    ReplyDelete
  37. WELL TAHT IS WHAT I WAS THINKING BUT NOT SURE IF JORGE WILL PUBLISH IT OR NOT

    ReplyDelete
  38. McDowell won as the first one to start and park!

    ReplyDelete
  39. GUNNY - Well do what you want regardless of what Jorge wants! We will read it! And I bet he would link to it if you did one...


    Hey YEE!! How the heck are you?!?!?!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Kris-

    No voodoo dolls, although we have discovered that the problem with the JJ voodoo dog is that it's not specific enough, so looks like we'll be putting money into JJ's pocket to buy something more specific to that team for next year.

    As for the craft show, I don't buy, I make stuff to sell. We do two fundraisers a year with the children's Sunday school class(ages 2-11, so mommies and teachers really do all the crafting). We take the money from the craft show, go toy shopping with the kids, and buy Christmas presents for foster children served by Lutheran Social Services.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Woot to Happy to the lead!

    Very cool cause SB - what is your crafty specialty?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Kristen-

    I crochet. I usually do scarves, hats, and potholders. This year, I also designed a Luther's Rose Christmas tree ornament.

    ReplyDelete
  43. SB - that is a good skill to have...the closest crafty thing I used to do was latch hook! LOL

    Back to re-arranging the living room...

    Awwww - Ambrose spins.

    ReplyDelete
  44. On a football note, Chiefs upset the Steelers, 27-24...

    Ambrose IS having a tough day!

    ReplyDelete
  45. speedbeagle,

    next year let me know early and maybe can get ann to make a few for you guys to sale she does that knot tying thing all the time

    ReplyDelete
  46. Woot! JG could have a flat...could go a lap down just what Kurt needs to gain on him!

    ReplyDelete
  47. wil stay in contact with you on those projects, she also does the covered coathangers for thing s like slacks and soft type blouses

    ReplyDelete
  48. I was on the phone (giving some hope to someone in prison) what did I miss?

    ReplyDelete
  49. You came back to hear Jimmie whine about how close Bowyer is to him when they're racing.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Is Montoya going to take Jimmie Out?

    ReplyDelete
  51. I wouldn't be surprised. Caution for Ambrose tagging the wall.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Dang you can tell JJ is stressed out! Complaining about Bowyer - but in all fairness Bowyer was driving a bit wonky! LOL Why JJ is racing by Montoya is beyond me!!!!

    Ok, how do you all decide where to hang shelves...this is tough! LOL

    Sorry SB - I am not crafty so can't really help but very cool GUNNY can hook you up!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Yee - whats up with your job search?

    ReplyDelete
  54. Don't look now, but Denny Hamlin is getting better as the race goes on.

    ReplyDelete
  55. OMG ! What the ! All heck has broke loose!

    Wow. Sadler out due to Menard's stupidity...RPM lost two cars in that mess.

    Smoke v JPM - now that would be a great cage match!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I am working part time as a GM for a resturant (a new business that is already in trouble)Just payroll and genaral accounting
    But other than that I'm not working

    ReplyDelete
  57. Kristen, I think it was the #96 of Erik Darnell that caused the mess.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Kristen I have finally decided to go to counselling. I have group Monday and one on one Tuesday. I see a lot of grief coming my way this holiday season and decided to be a big girl and let people try to help

    ReplyDelete
  59. Kurt looks OK if his brother leaves him alone.

    How loud is Jimmie going to whine if the pack takes him out?

    ReplyDelete
  60. Kasey's moving forward--perhaps the night time will be the right time for him.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Yee-- Glad you are taking care of yourself and going for counseling. No shame in that!! I hope you get all the extra support you need and of course we are always here to listen too.

    GM of a restaurant sounds like it would keep you hoppin' at least.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Kasey is coming alive -- what do you all think of Kasey saying he is out of RPM's after next year...do you think he will last that long?


    Wow, Hamster up to 5th in points...

    ReplyDelete
  63. Unfortuantly the 'owner' has no idea what she is into and has no investors (Or capital)

    ReplyDelete
  64. Nice to see JJ actually have to RACE for the championship rather than just ride out front. I often think he loses some of his skills b/c he is never in traffic...

    ReplyDelete
  65. Oy...I see why you put "owner" in quotes then! $$ is kinda a pre-req to run a restaurant.

    ReplyDelete
  66. the turtle needs to get in gear

    ReplyDelete
  67. about Kasey. See how the season shakes up. Drivers are struggling for rides. If he gets a sweet deal (hello Smoke) he'll jump --if not he will have to stick

    ReplyDelete
  68. Dang it JUNIOR!! They must get their mojo back...next year.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Kurt 'kicked' Jeff G -- giggle

    ReplyDelete
  70. Katie's doing all she can with the JJ voodoo dog

    ReplyDelete
  71. Stopping JJ may take more voodoo than one little beagle can muster.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I've got my dogs stepping on a JJ poster (just trying to help)

    ReplyDelete
  73. WOOO!!!!! It is a JPM and Smoke cage match...

    Well Kurt will finish safely in front of Smoke in the standings which will win me a few bets!

    ReplyDelete
  74. JPM had a score to settle with Smoke.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Shockers 42 being held for agro driving!

    Hole in roof on Kasey?

    ReplyDelete
  76. JPM being black flagged for two laps.

    ReplyDelete
  77. YeeMum-

    That works! Every little bit helps.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I just don't want to see a Hamlin win!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Katie will be getting a Target dog for Christmas

    ReplyDelete
  80. Why do re-arranging projects always lead to more projects?!? oy...

    Kurt is doing awesome...now we need Gordon to do something stupid or get wrecked. Where is Montoya?

    ReplyDelete
  81. I'm glad I didn't pick JPM for my fantasy team! I do have Smoke. GRRRR @ Montoya!!!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Hamsters crew is on fire tonight...not sure what happened to my brew crew that stop. My guess is they made adjustments...I hope!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Hey gang!! Hope had a great and safe weekend.

    Not to get my self in trouble with all the smoke fans but why didn't he get to sit for 2 laps for taking out Montoya,. lol.lol.

    That is sad to know unless something big happens which I said would but running out of time has car go out of the race, but NASCAR champion crying to crew chief about cars racing him hard is the second biggest joke in NASCAR to Brian France buying a Judge to keep his court files underapps.

    Ok Dale Jr's season is the second BUT Johnson is 3rd.lol

    I still got hope for Mark. CHEERS2ALL.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Hey F2! I agree, I guess Smoke wasnt as blatantly agro in their eyes...plus they dont want to mess with a new owner!


    Sheesh, I dunno about the 2 tire stop there Kurt and Pat!!! OY OY OY!!

    ReplyDelete
  85. just two tyres for Kurt....how are your nerves now, Kristen?

    ReplyDelete
  86. Is Kurt going to prove them wrong on his 2 tires?

    ReplyDelete
  87. That was a gutsy call by Pat -- likely his final one for the 2 team. Maybe he is trying to make it easier to let him go!! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  88. Way cool lap narrated by Carl for us fans! Thanks Carl

    ReplyDelete
  89. Pat is looking like a genius now...amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  90. Kurt's making that two tire change work so far...

    ReplyDelete
  91. Good race between Happy and Crabby (aka Kurt!)

    ReplyDelete
  92. WHERE'S that caution for debris??

    ReplyDelete
  93. Dang check out that Dodge horsepower!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Last lap for Mikey as a FT racer... sad

    ReplyDelete
  95. Happy edges out Kurt for third!!!

    ReplyDelete
  96. Idiots! THey dont even show the battle between Harvick and Kurt to the line to show JJ cross behind them...ABC is SO BAD at this!!!

    ReplyDelete
  97. Congrats to Hamster and to JJ -- he is amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Good thing you have counseling Yee! (smile)

    ReplyDelete
  99. Kristen, I'm putting ABC in the BAD category in my GBU!

    ReplyDelete
  100. Speaking of GBU, off to do the last one of the season. Later!

    ReplyDelete
