Race Chat- California

Time for some California dreaming- (maybe for a race that isn't boring? Nah, like Aerosmith said Dream On).

Questions for the day-

Will Jamie McMurray pull the repeat a la Matt Kenseth?

Will Carl's phone ring before the end of the race?

Forget Danica- what is the over/under on Kristen sightings?

I'll be in and out all day, so feel free to talk amongst yourselves.

  1. At least NASCAR got one thing right- they're not competing with the Academy Awards this year(somehow I think that was more because of the Academy and not NASCAR).

  2. over/under....depends on how well Kurt runs as that will determine how many shots of his pit box we'll get, lol

    ReplyDelete
  3. What is upo with coverage? I keep getting audio skips and video black outs? anyone else?

    ReplyDelete
  4. One more question to ponder(I knew I forgot something)- Will Dave Blaney complete more laps than his starting position number(he starts 5th)?

    ReplyDelete
  5. it's fine here so far, Yee...new rule for 2010; if Tez can finish your anthem before whoever they get singing it, it's bad. So far, I am 2-0 up this season

    ReplyDelete

  10. Would we still be fans, if the cars moved this slow in the race? It's would be kind of like watching curling.

    ReplyDelete

  14. I liked Kyle P's comment..........."Potholes are doing commercials and they show up in NASCAR""No pot holes in the other sports-" I guess potholes are NASCAR fans

    ReplyDelete
  15. I think he went from 6th to 20 something in the 1st lap.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Lap 16 and we are slip sliding away.Looks like this race is going to be a sleeper.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Larry, it'll be a fair race. Should be some green flag stops to stir the thing up.

    ReplyDelete
  18. That's why Fontana should only have one date--in spring so we can tuck it away for the rest of the year.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Zzzzzzz

    Will the 'debris' caution be thrown before the 1st round of pit stops, or after?

    ReplyDelete
  20. only if Jr's about to be lapped, Gene ;)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Glad some one else has the ZZZZZ's.

    CR. It might pick up after the rack warms up or dries out. Is that a pot hole forming in the back stretch?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Tez.... True, true. Called the Danica rule.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Why is Gene speaking French? Depris...

    ReplyDelete
  24. CR...re: potholes. Is that why they were weeping before the race?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  35. cewing... that must be worse than chewing... I hope!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Thanks for letting us know that there is no out of bounds line today, Joy. 5 or 6 more times and it should sink in. We are morons.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Gene, didn't most of the country vote for Obama? I'd say we're mostly morons!

    ReplyDelete
  43. jr must have been in danger of going a lap down.

    and now I know what that loud noise I heard was- jon screaming when Harvick took the lead.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Gee... that's something different... a yellow flag!

    ReplyDelete
  45. LOL, CR. You didn't miss anything here. Except a lead change and a debris caution. Oh, it all happened during a commercial. Never mind.

    ReplyDelete
  46. So, I wonder if kristen got to stay near Kurt's pit for the race?

    ReplyDelete
  47. You received 14 experience points and R$157,080 for helping....ta Gene, lol

    ReplyDelete
  48. I actually like that new rule. Put those guys a lap down that didn't pit, do the back of the lead pack. Kudos to NASCAR.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Truex must feel like shit! His old car wins the 500, and sat on the pole today. Now he has no power.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Cord is looking for Untraceable Cell Phone, Heart Tattoo and Computer Set-Up in Mafia Wars.

    ReplyDelete
  58. That beagle need's to be more agressive on the voodoo doll!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I'll contact Zynga about my new game...NASCAR WARS. Be the first among your friends to win the Facebook Cup!

    ReplyDelete
  60. now that's a game I'd thoroughly enjoy :D

    ReplyDelete
  61. Gene, that actually might be a money maker! Don't let it just slip by. Go present it, and I'd like to be your production assistant. lol

    ReplyDelete
  62. I'll be a international consultant :P

    ReplyDelete
  63. Kahne doing doughies on the grass....you usually do that after winning, Kasey ;)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  73. Ambrose back on the lead lap I just noticed :)

    ReplyDelete
  74. Tez, I think he got the wave around.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Happy back to 16th and moving up.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I'm determined to go to the ALMS Laguna Seca race, and the Cup race in Sonoma, even though we just spent over 10,000 dollars on trying to save the life of our precious Yorkie, Shamus. We have pet insurance, but don't know what they'll pay yet. Anyway. I'm taking the U.S. policy... spend, spend, spend, till the cows come home!

    ReplyDelete
  77. CR....The Administration's policy: 'Spend it Like you Stole It!' Oh, yeah, they did!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Budweiser is not getting their money's worth with that white car....go back to the iconic red.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Gene, I agree

    I just got my season tix and sponsored a local car

    giggle

    ReplyDelete
  80. Gene... There's no power, like the power rulers have over subjects. No change since the beginning of time. Rome was a republic, but even before Caeser, there was the aristocracy, who held power over the masses. Our country is beyond the Rubicon. We are controlled by the ellite, the empire is alive. I know this is heavy shit. But, what better time to share it, than during a mindless chariot race in Fontana?

    ReplyDelete
  81. Caution for JPM blowing an engine.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Gives new meaning to the term, "money stop."

    ReplyDelete
  83. I just bought my self another camera at BH Photo out of New york and Ryan Newman blows up . Hope that is noat a bad omen.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Mike Joy: "How about give a call to Sam Hornish."

    Me: "What's his number?"

    ReplyDelete
  85. I was mowing the lawn. What did I miss?

    ReplyDelete
  86. JPM and Ryan Newman blew engines.

    ReplyDelete
  87. there goes Thorn!
    Mouse squeeking*

    ReplyDelete
  88. DW doesn't know the dif between 'whining' and 'constructive feedback'. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  89. No, Mike HMS is not 1,2,3. Try 3,4,5. Moron!

    ReplyDelete
  90. I guess my whole Rubicon remark was beyond the pale. Have fun all!

    ReplyDelete
  91. It was a miracle they didn't wreck to bring out the caution!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Do they pull a string, and DW just spouts out shit that has nothing to do with what's actually occurring?

    ReplyDelete
  93. AwwCR I'll still banter with you at Sonoma

    ReplyDelete
  94. Marcos out with engine issues....again *rolls eyes*

    ReplyDelete
  95. Thanks Gene. I thought it was pearls before swine. But then, on the other hand, it could have been shit for shinola! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  96. Ren, you can be there? It' would be great to connect!

    ReplyDelete
  97. CR, I'm planning on being there!

    Broken axle on Dale Jr's car. Horrible luck for the #88

    ReplyDelete
  98. Rain is in the area. They're trying to beat the rain.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Hope the rain holds off long enough.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Looks like I've been talked into it I'll know more when it gets closer Tickets for turn 7 are preferred (If I remember right)

    ReplyDelete
  101. Hah. Maybe Danica can give him some pointers.

    ReplyDelete
  102. YeeMum, at Turn 7 you can pretty much see the whole track.

    ReplyDelete
  103. I saw the dark clouds an hour ago, and wondered if anyone at Fox did.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I have to confess I did eat a chocolate car wrapped in the #88 logos just b4 the axel I didn't mean anything REALLY I wont have one again I swear

    ReplyDelete
  105. I have a box with #24 cars in it should I eat one of those now?

    ReplyDelete
  106. Yeah, and while you're at it eat the ones with the #48 cars!

    ReplyDelete
  107. Front end of 24 car chomped!
    (I don't have any 48's)

    ReplyDelete
  108. Fuel pick up explanation....for the millionth time. Thanks, Larry.

    Note to Fox....your NFL announcers don't explain the same things OVER and OVER.

    ReplyDelete
  109. melt two 24's together then, Yee ;)

    ReplyDelete
  110. Note to Gene... We're all dufus's... ya know!

    ReplyDelete
  111. Evidently, just us nascar fans, not the nfl viewers.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Cord just increased the mastery of Frigate in Pirates.

    ReplyDelete
  113. I bit 2 24's at the same time let's see if that helps

    ReplyDelete
  114. Would the plural of dufus be dufi? You know, like octopus.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Note to Gene, What you never heard Madden?

    ReplyDelete
  116. the Hamster got too racey there?

    ReplyDelete
  117. Gene... I believe you're correct. Dufi sounds cool to me. NASCAR WARS sounds cooler!

    ReplyDelete
  118. LOL Yee. Yes Madden, and Theisman, certainly did over-analyze everything.

    ReplyDelete
  119. AHA looks like chocolate voodoo might work?

    ReplyDelete
  120. DW does not care for any man's garden. Just that the race track doesn't get wet. Well, tell that to a starving Somalli... lol

    ReplyDelete
  121. Earlier, one of the guys on Fox said that the #78 has a Hendrick engine. The #78 has an alliance with RCR and it has an RCR engine. Basically, it's a satellite team of RCR. The #78 is in the top 10.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Bummer JJ got in on the stop- his chocolate is melting as we speak

    ReplyDelete
  123. 2010
    Two Races
    The Kes
    Two Cautions

    Nice average, kid!

    ReplyDelete
  124. They need to give us their jobs we know the sport better anyway

    ReplyDelete
  125. Yee, I would have said that Kes is driving like a minor league racer.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Well lets see what happens now. Not many laps left. Oh wait. We are under commercial time! 55 commercials and counting! Enough commericals now ! Back to racing.

    ReplyDelete
