Will Jr even lead the 1st lap?
The race sponsor won yesterday's race (Harvick, Easy-Go). Today's race sponsor (Kobalt) also sponsors JJ....Uh oh.
Hey Gene! So what ya saying - JJ wins again?
Bad enough they show JJ all the time when he's leading....now we have to focus on him when he's in 6th place! WTH!
I am a little behind on the DVR but should catch up soon.Appears Junebug did not lead the first lap!
Sad but true, Kris.
6th for JJ = 35th for Jr
No, Kyle made sure of that. Surprised me that Jr didn't contest it a little harder.
And....we're strung out already....
Well I gots Kyle on my Fantasy team this week so I dont mind too much. Jr has no fight in him lately - depressing!
Ok I am caught up to live now...bummer for Clint having to pit.
Hey everyone! Looks like my fantasy team is toast this week--I have Bowyer and he made an unscheduled pit stop.
I forgot who I have on the fant team. Haven't used Kyle yet... waiting for Bristol.
Bristol is only 2 of 9 uses Gene! I think I have Kyle and Kasey, Speed and ?? Harvick maybe?Hey Jon!
I have JJ, Bowyer, Happy, and Speed in my team this week.
Hey Jon....Clint should get a lucky dog or a wave around. I'm sure NASCAR will throw a few debris cautions today.
So that's why I'm dropping in the league? LOLI need to use RCR every week.
Ouch poor Melissa!
Gene, I wouldn't doubt it! Speaking of caution, caution for Ragan cutting a tire and spanking the wall.
Tire issues today? It's overcast now, when the teams were expecting sun today.
Kristen, she's gotta be pulling her hair out right about now!
I'm thinking Bowyer's going to get the wave around, since he pitted not too long ago.
I thought Goodyear fixed the tire issue at Atlanta last year - my guess some aggressive setups perhaps?
Checked my team...I have Kurt, Burton, Bowyer, and Speed.Sorry about the Bowyer Kiss of Death, Jon.
How come it's always the mid-packers with tire issues?
Kasey is looking strong. Didn't he dominate here in the Chase?
Because they are messing with setups to find something to get up front. OUCH! 20 and 99!
BK causes another one...
BK never came up off the yellow line.
Carl should have learned last year in Talladega that BK won't back down. lol
What is Rooty wearing in that commercial? I love love.
what's 'dead chatting'?
He said he was wearing a fishing outfit? Its kinda weird..looks like a scarecrow
Gene, now we're even! LOL!
Hey Tez. It's the opposite of live chatting.
All I'm hoping for from Happy is a top 20--his car has been slow all weekend.
Twice burnt, Carl? It's YOUR fault for thinking the Kes would give you an inch.
JPM's looking strong.
ahh righto then, I shall try not to chat when dead ;)and howdy, lol
Anyone seen Jamie Mac today?
Cupcake is around the teens...
Hey, guys! Forensic's wife, Susan, says F2 over did it yday, he's in bed, he doesn't get to see the race until tomorrow so he said he doesn't want join the chat!LOL he doesn't go on the internet very much now he has an xbox!!! (They said I could post this). Go, Junyer or whoever!lol
Yawn. Anyone see the Bird/Magic documentary on HBO last night?
I've been wondering about Jamie. He said he has an ulcer. That English food, no doubt.
I forgot about it!FINALLY, a Jamie Mac sighting!
Oh yeah, the Jamie with the ulcer is Forensic 2.
Thanks for the F2 update Bev. Hope he takes it easy...sheesh men never listen!
The Bird/Magic docu was fantastic. Amazing that they both had such a will to win, yet were so different off the court, and so similar on it.
Kasey stinking up the show so far, lol
Didnt see the Bird Magic show...Not really a fan of NBA. College ball is so much faster - like it better.Good I got Kasey!
Kristen, it began from their high school days, to college, to the NBA. I'm not an NBA fan either. This show was about more than basketball, sort of a look at American society through two basketball players.
Hmmm sounds cool Gene. I like social commentary via sports (the Seabiscuit book ex)
Woot! Love my Brew Crew!!
Go Kurt! (and Kyle)!
You trained them well...LOL
Oh yea Gene...They let me tighten screws on the car when I am around thats about it!
Looks the same as last week... whoever is out front, is gone.Last pitstops will decide the winner?
Dunno, Kasey is coming thru the field as is Smoke so definitely some passing happening. Leader not that far out front yet.
Just bring back the steering wheel, Brad!
Dang Harvick was a bad pick this week...
Kristen, so was Bowyer.
BK = Penske hired hit man...
Here comes JPM.
KLV = LOL
Oh for cripes sake! Loose wheel for Junebug
and MM brings out the yellow for Jr
Jr can't seem to buy a break. Now he's stuck a lap down. But he could get the wave around since he just pitted.
Same thing happened to Kyle last caution, Jon
if Jimmie keeps that up, Kahne will just ram the 48....watch Chad whinge then, lol
Tire issues seem to be the order of the day.
He'll get the wave around...tires again tho.
Gene, Kyle caught a break with that caution right after he pitted.
Same with Jr
I just saw Digger, yet Larry and DW didn't comment on him. Much better this way. A little Digger goes a long way.
That's why I said the same thing happened.
The less Digger the better.
Weird to see Kenseth in the Valvoline colors.
The FOX big boss was talking awful tough last year about how he didnt care if people didnt like Digger but seems to have changed his tune.
Is it just me, or is DW actually analyzing?
I am listening to Kurts radio not broadcast - cant listen to any of them anymore!
Kristen, what's Kurt saying about the car?
DW explained why Jr may have thought he had a wheel vibration. Should try that more often.
Couple of front runners with tire problems now.
Loose in and out mostly trying to keep up with tires falling off after 10 laps. Lots of adjustments with air pressure and wedge in and out...Interesting DW is not just loving on him...makes me jealous how much he gushes!
Wasn't Jr in 2nd on the last restart? Or the one before that?
he probably was, Gene.
Naw that was cuz the the pit sequence I thought.
Igt was the one before last when he passed Denny and Tony to take 2nd when they got the green. Larry said as long as Jr could see the leader (Kurt at the time) he would stay up front all day. Good prediction, Larry!
How did I miss that - so used to Jr not being up front I guess and distracted when Kurt is.
wow, some passing for the lead...at at NASCAR race! hell freezing somewhere?
Jr and Gordon are laps down!??! I am clearly not paying attention...
I didn't know they gave the wave-around to ALL cars. I thought it was only those ONE lap down. What a JOKE!
That 5 car race for the lead, mid-race, was a nice sequence. Unexpected, but nice.
someone check the #9 for a turbo or something, he is gooooooooone.
I'm watching the RaceTrax on Fox Sports' site--Happy's going backwards FAST. He started 16th on this run and is barely in the top 25.
Penske on Parade!
Whats up with Smoke on pit road? SHR not as stellar this year fer sure
JJ may be having tire issues--he's feeling a vibration.
The only thing that can slow HMS...Goodyear!
*breaking news* Rick Hendrick has signed an exclusive deal with Michelin starting from the race in Bristol!:P
What is it with the Hendrick cars and tire problems?
Woot! Go Kurt! Team Penske all in top 10!
Dang Kurt is getting all mental about tires cuz they told him about Gordon and Smoke...
Talk him down, Doc...LOL
I wish I could! LOLWow Burton running with no brakes. Ball-ZY!
I know why Kasey is doing this; he's ticked off at Jon for not putting him first in his GBU when they were last here since he was only good on a short run, lol
Tez, LOL! He'll get over it! I'll put him first IF he wins! But watch JJ rip his heart out and win on the final turn.
Off to do a few things. My GBU will be up, but later than usual due to errands.
Woot! Some Penske Dodge power there...and dont look now but the hit man is right behind JJ!
have a good afternoon, Jon :)
Later, Jon.Good racing after restarts.
Dang - I picked the wrong Busch Bro...
JJ = Stalking horse?
I picked the right one...nah nah
Anyone else sick of that Napa Knowhow song?
I never get sick of looking at Truex. Teach the world to sing is worse! Thank god those guys can drive cuz they cant sing!LOL
I was sick of it with the two yahoos singing it. Now they have the same song with Truex!
mute button, peoples ;)
"the GoDaddyGirl" Not, "the racecar driver."Says it all.
LOL Gene Jr pole sitter not lead a lap all day, 2 laps down says it all too...
all because he picked the inside line on the start I reckon....well, for the first point anyway, Kristen.
You are so kind to my boy Tez...
Hey SB !Just in time for caution...
howdy SB :)well Jr always runs the high line so I just expected him to start there, lol
wham! 13 and 19 - no yellow amazing!! uhp, now yellow
JJ done - looks to be between Kasey and Kurt.
Ambrose didn't pit there....bad move I reckon since he was at the back due to that penalty anyways.
HOW ARE ALL MY NASCAR PEEPS?
You all know I'm watching Magic-Lakers, right? But still living vicariously through y'all.
Hey Chump! So far so good...Whose winning the bball game?
Magic are in control of this one. And Ron Artest has dyed his hair purple and gold a la Dennis Rodman. I hear Bleed may soon be doing the same thing.
Shameless attempt at self-promotion. There's a new post up on the Chump.http://sportschump.net/2010/03/07/chumpservations-vol-9-mel-kiper-rockettes-and-the-nfl-draft-gary-bettman-vs-the-nhl-vs-the-winter-olympics-and-what-not-to-say-at-an-open-bar-wedding/3102/
will check it out after the checkers my man!Purple and Gold is a good look...Bleed better take pictures!
Good racing at the end here...helps Kurt is leading!
Definitely payback, but most likely from earlier in the race.
Brad was looking like, "I'm gonna get that SOB for turning me."
Wow...hello big yellow hauler for Carl. Lost a LOT of respect for carl there.
Carl just made a HARD right into BK.
Not that BK doesnt deserve some payback but that just killed Kurt's chance to win. Now we are going to have to pit or everyone else will and blow by us
NASCAR just parked Edwards! Hello yellow hauler!
Bubye carl...parking your arse
Carl is not a nice guy!
Kurt first one with 4 tires, will see if we can catch em...BK well spoken so far gonna make Carl look bad
hi guys, big ole bonehead move by edwards!
So much for the new "let the drivers police themselves" edict.
BK sounded a little whiney but Carl gonna have a sore butt once Helton gets thru with him.Kurt looks good...
Go Paul indeed. He's on my fantasy team this week.
after Helton's finished, then Jack will lay into him
SB, smart choice!
Come on KURT!!!Hey Ragan...bad day for you with David and Carl...sorry girl!
Yeah, good thing I slept thru it all
Caution BEFORE the white flag! Harvick BARELY escapes!!
let's try again, lol
the old mccupcake's back!
Dear Jamie... just stick to the plate tracks!
Dang. Kurt had it in the bag. that was a sweet move to the lead. Cupcake is toast.
I think Kurt's a sitting duck now.
Dunno...if he can beat JPM off the line we are good. Kurt has been practicing restarts with his drag racing dont forget!
This ALL Carl's fault! No respect. What a jackass!
maybe nascar paid carl to do it to keep things exciting at the end...?
He's got a VERY hungry JPM lining up next to him and no one in front of both of them.
Yup should be a good drag race. Hope they dont take each ohter out!
BK's new nickname is "The Situation". Just like the idiot on 'Jersey Shore', everywhere he goes... there's a situation!
good one, hanny!
Carl would not have been parked if Brad didn't get airbourne.
Go Paul, again!
JPM will be crying like a Columbian onion farmer
good for K's guys!
Good job Kurt and the Blue Deuce crew!
Congrats to Kurt, Penske, and Kristen!Back that thang up, Kurt!
WOOOOOOTTT!!! Awesome! My boys are so happy.Dang why cant he do this when I am there!!!
Off to do my GBU. Later!
Doing the snoopy dance over here...C-ya all! =)
You called it Gene - JPM whining that Kurt took off too fast...whatEVER!!!
