great minds, Kristen....will delete mine.- after the fireworks from last week, will Loudon continue the trend or live up to its usual mundaneness?- should Juan and Jeff swapped sponsors this week?- will Vader go back-to-back to pave the way for a klv win or will Kurt snatch it for SB?- what lap will Tez switch over to watch the V8 Supercars?
=) Hi Terry...good questions for the race - my mind still on futbol! What is UP with the refs this year?Vadar Vadar Vadar!!!I say you switch over on lap 10
PS. Kurt running some trick set up this weekend for testing (I think) so no idea how they are coming out of the box.
ooooo trick setups, nice!
I foresee... It's becoming clearer... Ahhhh! A LINE DANCE!!!(Do they allow line dancing in New England?)You guys have fun!
Ugh...my ears are bleeding after that anthem by Fog Hat!!
Hey Dwindy! Line dancing!?!?! You should show us how its done...
it's done....already switched over, LOL
oh and Kristen? Yes, you were in the background after Marcos' postrace interview...you were walking away though so it was just a glimpse right at the end.
I never saw it but several folks said they saw me - that was right after I said bye to TR and he told me the story of what happened with the fan and Kurt.
I only watched it on youtube earlier, lol
Hmm will have to look for it!
Good morning everyone! I think this is going to be one of those races where you can do other things and not miss much.
Foghat was BRUTAL.
Winterbottom leading Whincup by the way.
My guess as to who would be the first to park was off by one. I picked Todd Bodine to be first, and Max Papis beat him to it.
Hey Jon - Yup, exactly what I am doing...other stuff! LOL Clearly so is Tez!
I'm playing Frontierville on Facebook!
fish wrangler for me, Jon.
I am so happy I am not on Facebook! LOL
don't make us start a group for you, Kristen :P
Yeah, the Kristen Valus Fan Club!
Oh Gawd! Nooooooooo! =P
BTW Tez - where did you hang your flag?
it's on the wall in the living room....right next to the TV.Unfortunately, those hook things you can buy that you pull the strips down the wall and they come off easy didn't work and it took off about 2 square inches of wallpaper with it.
Howdy folks. I'm doing other stuff, too. Maybe a nap?
I missed Foghat.... maybe it'll be on Youtube!
Hi allKristen, you can always set up a Facebook page as Millie Leit and use a picture of Kurt for your avatar. That would protect your privacy and you could join in all the fun over there :o)
Ooops! Yea those probably only work on paint Tez...oh well your a renter! LOLHey Gene -- nap sounds good to me - too many chores to catch up on around these parts tho
Yea SB but then I wouldnt get ANYTHING done! I have to continue to resist the lure of FB...
I'll have a chat about it with the landlord....he was away last week, lol
Tony won't be overly happy with that stop, me thinks.
Sorry SB! Smoke just cant seem to catch a break so far this summer.
Hey Gene, Foghat BUTCHERED the National Anthem. My ears are still stinging!
Hey jon-Send me some building materials in Frontierville please. It takes 15 of each to finish a chicken coop and 20 of each to finish a sawmill.
Speaking of anthems, anyone down this way next week is more than welcome to come hear the annual rendition of God Bless America. I can guarantee it will be way better than most of the singers you've heard at NASCAR races.
SB, I'll have to send you some later on, when I can send gifts again.
How come the 18 pit crew doesn't ever get mentioned as the best in the biz? 12 second range every stop, every week, and no love.I love love.
I have not seen Junyer all day! How's he gonna sell tee shirts with no air time?
Junyer was on during pit stops...18 crew is top notch - brew crew gets little love too...in general pit crews get no love.
Right after I mention the pit crews, they show an ATT commercial that lets the fans vote on which crew is the best. I believe the super intelligent race fans have selected Jeff and Jr's crew 1st and 2nd!
Jr around Vader....there must be something in my water.
Kyle Busch in the lead
Tez...LOL.... pass the water, please.
Wha? Junyers pit crew isn't the best out there??LOLJJ vs. Kurt vs. Hammy vs. Smoke for trifecta!
I NEVER thought I'd say this: GO HAMSTER!!!
V8's are done....Whincup held off Frosty in race 2, reversing the race 1 result.
Argentina are up 1-0 over Mexico.
Kasey's reporting the engine is about to blow up. He's WAY off the pace.
Tough break for Kahne.
I thought things were awful quiet at the taco shop on the corner...Kahne done. Kurt complaining. JJ not leading yet!
I *love* Clint in that commercial...me too... HA!
Reagan Smith is only 3 laps down with a broken wrist, from the pileup last week.
Liking Reagan more and more...Kurt starting to lose it in the car - and now Roger yapping at him which usually makes things worse - could get interesting!
KA-BLOOM! Kahne's done.
lookcd like Jeff was speeding leaving pits
This run is long enough for JJ to start fading. He's strong on short runs but as the run goes longer he fades.
Gordon, not Burton
Unless the Chad made adjustments, Jon. Nah, he would never do that. lol
I think this race is Burton's to lose now.
Dont think I'll be winnning trifecta unless JJ steps up!
Vadar stalking the lead
HOLD HIM OFF BURTON!!!
Vadar is looking good right now.
Whew Kurt is starting to lose it on the radio again...
Monty's going to get tapped around if he's not too careful, lol
If JJ passes Burton, this race is over.
JPM hit the wall!
Reed Sorenson JUST DUMPED HIM.
Gloves will be off for the restart.
WTH was Reed doing? JPM is a lead-lap car and Reed was a lap down!!
rut roh, Burton stayed out....
Can't believe JJ and Kyle pitted! No way they can get back to the front.
I daresay Reed decided to race Juan the way he raced him the last five laps, Jon.
bub bye JPM!good stop by Brew Crew
Plus, they should have taken 4 tires as long as no one else was pitting anyway.
Tez, Reed was a lap down! JPM was on the lead lap! Common sense should tell you if you're a lap down, let the lead lap car go by! I squarely place the blame on Reed.
There was a line of cars behind Sorenson that were racing him for position. He couldn't let JM go that close to end of race. he might have lost spots himself.
there goes Vadar.
Oh, now I find out that EVERYONE pitted! TNT showed JJ and no one else!
Could Happy STEAL a win here?? He's in third now!
Nice driving Burton. Maybe Kyle will cry in your face after the race!
klv v SB on the front row....
Jon... Happy is points racing. He won't go for the win/
Kurt could win this too Jon...I am all for anyone dumping anyone at any time of the race - sick of this pulling over for cars to pass
He always wins the race after I am there...always!
Take that JJ!!!!
Dont talk too soon! Kurt gonna get the bump
Whew! Great finish boring race overall
nice trifecta, Kristen!
Grumble, grumble, grumble.A man's got to know his limitations, BURTON!
Woot!! =) Nice finish by Kurt with the trick setup...good clean racing too at the end
THAT'S how you pay back a driver! JJ did a masterful job!Off to do my GBU. Later!
Bye all! Enjoy rest of your Sunday...Off to catch end of Mex v Argentina
Wow Smoke apologizing to Kurt for last lap...a new man??
have a good afternoon/night everyone. I won't be around next weekend so I hope Daytona is a good one :)
klvalus...You've lost your jinx powers!Way to be!
