Loudon Race Chat

Oh Gawd this pre-race is a little painful...now I am remembering why I don't typically watch it!

Ok! Stop the presses - Chase begins today in case you didn't know!
And we appear to have another tight race in the Trifecta so if nothing else, that should keep the race interesting.

Whose around to chat!?

  2. Ok Bev, we will keep you in the know. You know there are a few places on the web that you can watch the video feed.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Un-hanable! Tim Brewer is an idiot!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Some insider Brew Crew notes - apparently TR missed his flight and Kurt missed his media time because he didnt know what time he was supposed to be in there. Good gawd you'd think he could read the schedule...

    Not sure what happened with the tire penalty - methinks Addington probably tried to pull a fast one and knew the penalty wouldn't be that severe in order to try out something for a GWC finish perhaps? Dunno...could have been honest mistake too.

  5. BTW- those who haven't seen it - check out TEZ's Olympics blog - very cool!

  16. So race recap for Bev - Smoke leading, Speed brings out first caution with a spin...lots gamble with 2 tires - JJ up into top 10 as result and Bowyer leading...

    ReplyDelete
  17. go McFlurry, smash those crappy Chase drivers!

    ReplyDelete
  18. AND JMac pushing Bowyer for the lead! Probably teh most important update for you eh?

    ReplyDelete
  19. I suck at stuff like that, Dwindy, lol

    ReplyDelete
  20. OUCH! Ambrose takes out Menard and MM scoots by...sorry Tez!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I presume the commentators mean that last week was Marcos' best oval finish for 2010 since, of course, he got 3rd at Bristol last year.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ambrose needs to go trophy huntin'! Take out all the drivers you guys took in the trifecta!

    ReplyDelete

    Ah, Kristen...You were just waiting for the chance to be an announcer, weren't you? Thanks.lol

    ReplyDelete
  25. Check out the TV feed SB noted Bev - its a pretty racy race so far - worth watching!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Busy watching Dolphins give the Favres more than they can handle!

    ReplyDelete
  27. BALLOONS & WHISTLES...Tez just posted the 900th blog on Lugnuts and Fan-Addicts. (I found that out when I had to re-start my computer after SB's link shut it down!lol trying it again.)

    Hold on I am falling off my couch...

    ReplyDelete
  30. I dare anyone to drink a shot every time espn announcers say 'Jimmie Johnson'

    Geesh! Give us a break.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Might take the dare, using Nyquil! Good night everybody, just in case! Go, Jamie!!! & Junyer!

    ReplyDelete
  32. at 11 in the morning, Kristen? :P

    ReplyDelete
  33. A shot of what? Milk? Old crow? Or the 12 year old Scotch?

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm impressed with AJ the last couple weeks. Always liked him, and he's got a hot wife too!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I get that response when I take our Yorkie to the park!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm doing shots of cran-grape juice with my breakfast! LOL

    I sat with AJ's parents on a plane to PHX once - they were super cool, laid back. I like AJ too!

    ReplyDelete
  37. No, I think I'll move the computer back to the living room so I can go to sleep in the recliner watching the race, like old times!lol

    ReplyDelete
  38. I saw him win a Champ Car race in Portland. He was so young!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Wished I would have followed my intuition, and swapped Kyle for Clint after qualifying. Oh well, SB need's a win.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Its a long race yet CR...have faith in Kyle -
    all the Chasers are pretty hyped up on the radio.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Kristen, you sound like a great crew chief! Have ever had a chance to talk to Mr. Penske? ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Argh! What happened to my brew crew!

    ReplyDelete
  43. LOL - I listen to Steve calm Kurt down enough. Hmmm, maybe next time I see the Captain I'll ask- would only work with Sam or Justin tho - the sweethearts! But both who seem to be outta luck at Penske!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Maybe there's room on top of the #2 war wagon for a mental health specialist, for those crisis times during races? lol

    ReplyDelete
  45. That' a new record! Moving my desk top computer to another room! Now for the Nyquil. Lights out shortly.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh they make room for the shrink - we often have "sessions" sitting on tires with the crew. Other crews and officials come by sometime too! LOL


    Dang I thought Kurt was gonna dump JJ there...shouldda even tho it would have screwed my trifecta!

    ReplyDelete
  47. It's not whining when Kevin trashes his car and crew, right? Just Kyle.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Richard, trying to settle Kevin down.

    Why in the hell doesn't NASCAR give the regular season champ a trophy, money, or even a gift certificate to Red Lobster! For Pete's sake!!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Gene, whining is whining, no matter who.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Just Kyle and Vadar, Gene.

    Love the what the hell glove sign from Rooty!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Anyone see the end of yesterday's truck race?

    Did you see Kyle wave at Buescher after crossing the finish line?

    ReplyDelete
  52. Just sayin'..... they all do it, but the haters overlook all but one. Same morons used to call Gordon a whiner. I think they must have problems pronouncing 'winner'... lol

    ReplyDelete
  53. Anyone else have Bowyer on their team this week?

    ReplyDelete
  54. I do! Got Kyle, Harvick, Bowyer and Smith...
    I thought I had Burton but he is on my bench.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Pa-lease nobody whines like the Busch Bros! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  56. Junyer is the best whiner cuz he starts sounding like Boomhauer (sp?) on King of the Hill...

    only dif is the Busch Bros are also winners!

    sigh. my poor beloved Junyer

    ReplyDelete
  57. I've got Kyle, Bowyer, Burton, and AJ

    ReplyDelete
  58. Is it just me or do those third rate crews look really slow?

    ReplyDelete
  59. Woot! YEA!! Take out Smoke Clint!!

    ReplyDelete
  60. THANK GOD Kurt missed Hamlin!! whew

    ReplyDelete
  61. Nice driving by all... except the Duck!

    ReplyDelete
  62. "He just cant hold his line can he"..."nope"

    and he wont apologize either!

    ReplyDelete
  63. At least they keep us updated as to where they would be in the points right now. If the race ended right now. It won't? Never mind.

    ReplyDelete
  64. how Brad didn't t-bone Hamlin, I'll never know.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Who would've thunk, a duck and a horse would team up for a race car?

    ReplyDelete
  66. Carl... biggest A-hole in racing? Vote now.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Points as they run right now...stupidest stat they have come up with yet.


    Vote - CARL

    ReplyDelete
  68. But he does one heck of a back flip!

    ReplyDelete
  69. I cant believe Kurt didnt get hit

    ReplyDelete
  70. Go ole Burton... Just wants to be safe...

    ReplyDelete
  71. Dang You Burton - that was a pretty tight pinch!
    Now he is going to have to deal with two pissed off Busch Bros

    ReplyDelete
  72. Mmmmm disagree Gene - Burton didn't give Kurt an inch - Denny gave Carl way more room than Burton did.

    ReplyDelete
  73. go the syncronised spinning by Shrub and Vader, nice!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Both went in too hard... is what I'm referencing, Kris

    ReplyDelete
  75. Interesting smoke and bowyer not coming

    ReplyDelete
  76. I believe Tony, Clint and Burton all went "bugger" when they saw everyone else dive for the pits, lol

    ReplyDelete
  77. Penske team orders - start taking people out in front of Kurt!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Kristen just left the 100th comment! (The Nyquil is kickin' in.lol)

    ReplyDelete
  79. Is there something on the track? WTF?

    ReplyDelete
  80. that's what Briscoe should have done to Dario last night, Kristen!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Yea, kurt even said it was his bad. Burton didn't give him any wiggle room though.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Carl made his own wiggle room... lol

    ReplyDelete
  83. Kurt's got Bad Brad in front of him - look for him to punch a few more holes in the field! LOL

    Yea Gene its call RACING for the first time in months....

    JMac to the lead!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Hmmm Kurt practicing his bull in a china shop persona today

    ReplyDelete
  85. One way or another Kurt's gaining positions!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Kurt's had a shocking last half hour or so.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Joey's dad is blowing a blood vessel! lol

    ReplyDelete
  88. Yup! Except the damage and need to pit isnt helping us keep those positions!

    I bet he is a treat on the radio right now...

    ReplyDelete
  89. I've dropped 7 positions in the Fall NASCAR Nuts league!

    ReplyDelete
  90. LOL CR! You sound like Harvick...

    ReplyDelete
  91. God dang it! JJ pitting...there goes my shot at Trifecta!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Gotta say impressed with this race so far...best racing we've seen in recent memory.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Yea, since yesterday's truck race! lol

    ReplyDelete
  94. first time in Loudon's history there's been a decent race isn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  95. Clint, feeling his Cheerios clicking in?

    ReplyDelete
  96. Can't believe the hard racing in the 1st chase race. WTH planet am I on?

    ReplyDelete
  97. You are just dreaming all of this Gene...or you are drunk from all your JJ shots. I dunno what race your watching, ours is a snoozer. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  98. "will it stay green?" These announcers know what they're talking about?

    ReplyDelete
  99. is Kurt still on track...then no!

    ReplyDelete
  100. "will it stay green?"

    No, eventually the white and checkered will come out. Probably yellow and red, too.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Dolphins beat the Favras! YES!

    Brettski had FOUR turnovers!

    ReplyDelete
  102. man how I would love the fat man to run outta gas...

    ReplyDelete
  103. I picked the wrong Ganassi car for the trifecta, lol

    ReplyDelete
  104. Is this great racing going to be trumped by fuel mileage?

    ReplyDelete
  105. I like the fuel mileage aspect - this one is 100% on the backs of those teams for not pitting during those numerous cautions...

    ReplyDelete
  106. 99 v 43 is the best thing happening? Puleeze

    ReplyDelete
  107. WOOO HOO ! Fat man is outta fuel!! So is Burton

    ReplyDelete
  108. Tony is blaming SB for this one :P

    ReplyDelete
  109. Nice win Bowyer! Impressive with the gambling by Tony...wouldda thought he would have played it safe.

    Great chatting everyone! Have a lovely Sunday...

    ReplyDelete
  110. Wow! Graet win for Clint! ...and Harvick get's a top 10! Good job!

    ReplyDelete
  111. I dunno - certainly best start to the Chase. I am partial to Kurt losing his wheel in the final race when he won in 04.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Yep, Tony lost because of SB. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  113. No he's not. I couldn't win with Tony because moseby picked him first.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Oh Speedy - you're gonna have some 'splainin' to do...

    ReplyDelete
  115. LOL... Thanks all. I had fun! Have a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  116. is that the first time the number 33 has won in Cup?

    ReplyDelete
  117. Kristen- you're the one who wanted him to run out of gas. I was screaming "Go Tony!"

    ReplyDelete
  118. No tez. They've won here before.

    Tony; "I ran me out of fuel". There, SB, you're off the hook!

    ReplyDelete
  119. ta Gene, Jayski has Nemechek was the last guy to win in it at Rockingham in 2001 as well.

    ReplyDelete
  120. I bet Richard Childress is so very happy this race isn't 301 laps like the June one is, lol

    ReplyDelete
  121. I must have been yelling louder SB! LOL
