  1. I am guessing no...but he sure needs a win in Cup!

    Excited to finally get to watch a race live for once. Hope its not a snoozer!

  2. Hey, Kristen. I think if Denny wins it will be a boring race... of course, same thing if Kyle wins. lol

    ReplyDelete
  3. C'mon Dwindy... Kyle's gonna make it 3 in a row at Richmond in the spring race.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Hey everyone! Hamlin's capable of getting it done, but I think either Happy or Bowyer.

    ReplyDelete
  5. What happened to AARP? Did they pull out? (I know, it's just DuPont's turn... A little controversy, eh?)

    ReplyDelete
  6. Definitely got to hope for no one to hit the setup!

    You got any inside info on Trevor - what the heck bit him? Brown recluse? neurological symptoms not good sign...

    ReplyDelete
  7. Harvick's car is loose center off. (I'm watching Harvick's dedicated channel on DirecTV Hot Pass.)

    ReplyDelete
  8. Now Trevor says the docs at Mayo don't think it's from the bite. Still testing.

    ReplyDelete
  9. JPM is looking pretty racy tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hi Jon and Dwindy!

    Kurts in car radio not working on his website - probably for the best since he is going to be teaching sailor's some new words tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  11. jon...

    Do they have a dedicated announcer too?

    ReplyDelete
  12. I have Bowyer, Gordon, R Smith, and B Labonte. Need a good night here.

    ReplyDelete
  13. That's wrong... I switched Labonte for Smith

    ReplyDelete
  14. yikes...if not from the bite then what?? I hope not another Vickers situation...

    glad JPM is racy I've got him ,Big Daddy, Jr and Bobby on the team for tonight...

    ReplyDelete
  15. I've got Kyle, Clint, Burton and Bobby L.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Hmmm lots of folks thinking alike - at least on the C - team...LOL

    ReplyDelete
  17. I've got Burton, Bowyer, Hamster, and Blaney

    ReplyDelete
  18. Kris, looks like one year is the limit for Addington and the Busch boys.. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  19. Rooty is my other driver. With 33, 24, and 72.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Gordon's gotta collect his 1 lap led points then disappear back into the pack...

    ReplyDelete
  21. Looks like Harvick's car is better built for the long runs.

    ReplyDelete
  22. KK had knee surgery during the 2 off weeks. Last year, Denny won the next race after doing same. Hmmmm.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Uh, DW and Larry Kyle passed both Mark and Juan while yall were bragging about Mark.

    ReplyDelete
  24. JJ's uncharacteristically struggling.

    ReplyDelete
  25. So far Kurt blaming Dodge not Steve but they have been ugly lately. Only shot I have seen of Kurt is him adjusting his underwear right before start your engines! That seems fitting some how...

    ReplyDelete
  26. Chad Knaus is on the horn to NASCAR... "We need a couple of debris cautions!"

    ReplyDelete
  27. Harvick's backing up--he's complaining of the car being loose. I think it may be a repeat of Texas.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Harvick dropping like a STONE. He's 18th and falling FAST.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Well folks...

    I owe, I owe, so off to work I go! Later!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Plus Jr about to get lapped, definitely = caution!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Looks like you won't miss much, Dwindy. Keep those girls in line tonight. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  32. Harvick in for an early pit stop.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Is there a Roush car in this race? hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  34. Dont work too hard Dwindy!

    Shockingly no debris caution even with Jr going down...

    ReplyDelete
  35. Now we need to cycle through without a caution.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Where's the 'like' button, Tez? lol

    ReplyDelete
  37. Good job 29 crew! Gained a few spots!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I hope that was the only phone those two guys on the broken ski lift had.

    They show that commercial on EVERY channel, ALL the time!

    ReplyDelete
  39. already snoozin! ah, the season was so good while it lasted...

    gotta hold out hope that something exciting will happen like Jr pays-back Kyle or something!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I like Vader going down a lap!! VERY much!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Are the talking heads at MRN any better that these guys? If they are, I'll pay for track pass until I get my eyes back. Don't like having to depend on the talking heads to find out what's happening.

    ReplyDelete
  42. And he isn't even in the lucky dog position!

    ReplyDelete
  43. oooo, Ryan and Juan going at it, lol

    ReplyDelete
  44. Dang it! He is JUAN just got dumped by Newman...

    ReplyDelete
  45. Caution out for debris from the 39 and 42 getting together.

    ReplyDelete
  46. MRN is almost always better Speedy...what the heck did you lose so you cant see??

    ReplyDelete
  47. Good job 29 crew! The 29 gained 2 positions.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Yea, Ryan! Now get the win!!! lol

    ReplyDelete
  49. Kristen- $300 contact lens. I can get a replacement from 1-800-contacts for half that, but my dr purged his files, and mine was one of the ones thrown out, so not only need lens but $200 for exam. I've got the prescription for the lens, but he won't rewrite it without exam.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Yeah Speedy, MRN will make it sound a lot better than it actually is.

    ReplyDelete
  51. still talkin' bout' Denny's lousy knee...

    ReplyDelete
  52. CR, don't you know he's the only pro athlete to play through a little pain?

    ReplyDelete
  53. lol Hanny... ya, guess I forgot that aspect of the story!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Hey CR!

    Ohhh...that makes sense now Speedy. Bummer!

    For once JJ tags someone other than Kurt.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Judging by that restart, I see a bunch of pileups coming if there are a few more yellows.

    ReplyDelete
  56. 11 C.C. knows they can't beat the 18 in the pits.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Don't look now, but Happy's in 9th and on the move...

    ReplyDelete
  58. did you steal a crystal ball, Gene? :P

    ReplyDelete
  59. I'm liking these comic book cutaways better than Digger.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Naw Tez he is just lurking on twitter without the 4 second delay! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  61. omg only 20 cars on lead lap with only 150 laps gone...nap time!!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I am considering firing up the PS2 and playing some Gran Turismo 4.....

    ReplyDelete
  63. JJ just got passed by Blaney!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Knaus talks to JJ like he is a total child over the radio...cracks me up

    ReplyDelete
  65. Andy Lally holding up Kyle. Don't poke the bear.

    ReplyDelete
  66. whose the bear? Laly the jujitsu master!?!? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  67. tez, speaking of firing up... if I had a bong... lol

    Those days are long gone.

    ReplyDelete
  68. That won't help on the track, K.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Gotta love Lally though. He is an X-Games master, also. Any sport with 'Extreme' in the title, he's doing it.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Ok, I know if you mes with the bull, you get the horns. A bear, you get mauled by the claws. But what happens when you mess with a 'roo?

    ReplyDelete
  71. smells like hippie in here...CR!! LOL

    =P

    ReplyDelete
  72. Hippie Lettuce. Dang left coasters!

    ReplyDelete
  73. For a short track this race is a snooze fest.

    ReplyDelete
  74. "Don't worry it'll put itself out." La Dee Dah

    ReplyDelete
  75. Fire on pit road... anybody bring marshmallows?

    ReplyDelete
  76. Slippery floor board? KK needs a cup holder.

    ReplyDelete
  77. not good if you cant keep your foot on the pedal...too weak in the knees! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  78. luckily, the Vancouver/Nashville game starts soon so I can watch that instead :)

    ReplyDelete
  79. woo Kurt going after Penske lead engineer tom germain again...

    ReplyDelete
  80. Kurt putting on a dirt track clinic!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Yes he is. That wasn't the car getting slideways, that was the driver making a statement. Love it.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Hostile work environment? ....

    Kurt Busch: "We're two laps down, our day is done....I'm sorry, our day was done when Tom German decided he was in charge."

    ReplyDelete
  83. Come on Kyle and Denny - get into one of your patented tiffs and take each other out!!

    Pretty funny - Kurt asked our spotter what caution was for and spotter said "who knows, they picked it out of a hat buddy..."

    ReplyDelete
  84. Thats the quote Gene! LOL Kurt is in pissing match with lead engineer b/c German said he didnt need driver input to tune the cars...

    ReplyDelete
  85. So far, I'm glad I benched 14 for 24. Same tires here as at Phoenix.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I thought Kurt already said he would set up the car... by the seat of his pants.

    Roger's paying engineers too much money for that.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Yes he did - apparently neither his arse nor the engineers can figure out how to get the Dodge to turn...LOL

    24 stalking...I like it!

    ReplyDelete
  88. the Dodge has always been hard to setup ever since they changed to the Charger for 2005, lol

    ReplyDelete
  89. I missed the last 15 min.

    Heard Ryan saying JPM tried to wreck him... "that's not cool if he does" lol

    ReplyDelete
  90. Dodge since COT has at least been semi- competitive.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Roger runs shop like IRL - too engineering heavy but not in best ways...Kurt's beef with the organization is valid. IRL doesnt work for NASCAR.

    Ryan cracks me up...guess same rule doesnt apply to him earlier in race! Gotta love Ryan

    ReplyDelete
  92. A top 10 would be good for Happy--the 29 camp has the wrong setup for the race tonight. Hopefully there'll be a few cautions to make things interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  93. He's like every other driver.... when they do it, it was just racing. When it's done to them, "He tried to wreck me."

    ReplyDelete
  94. Jon, that's a big camp tonight. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  95. Kristen, ya got to admit, Juan was not "clear" when he came up... and, remember, the talking heads said Ryan's rotors were "glowing" LOL

    ReplyDelete
  96. ...earlier in the race, that is!

    ReplyDelete
  97. JPM is taking the "boys have at it" mantra LITERALLY.

    ReplyDelete
  98. only in NASCAR is a bigass hammer a precision tool, lol

    ReplyDelete
  99. I know Tit for Tat... and that was not Tit for Tat! That was premeditated Jack Knife!

    ReplyDelete
  100. Kurts spotter told him Newman was staying on the bottom - which he should have until clear. Although Kurt also said he was going to wreck himself...your call!!

    Rumor on Spotters stand is 42 and 39 not done with paybacks yet!

    ReplyDelete
  101. 5x just as pissed today as Kurt...testy testy testy!

    ReplyDelete
  102. Bring it on Ryno! JPM is a black belt.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Matt changed lanes prior to the start line, has to get a penalty.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Vader would have had the free pass had he stayed out; he pitted and thus, Jeff Burton got the free pass due to the latest caution.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Well, I wish there would be after race coverage of Ryan and Juan... Too much to ask for I suppose.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Yea you are asking way too much CR...

    ReplyDelete
  107. Ryan would have to come into the NASCAR hauler after the race to get at JPM... ala Smoke.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Newman is still gonna finish strong. Nanna nann uh nann uh!!! :0

    ReplyDelete
  109. I think Ryan can handle himself--he's a pretty stout guy.

    ReplyDelete
  110. I guess NASCAR only give out that penalty if you haven't won a Cup race before....Ragan should be highly PO'd at that.

    ReplyDelete
  111. if stereo types apply... Juan probably carries a switch blade

    ReplyDelete
  112. Happy in for four tires and fuel.

    ReplyDelete
  113. That looked premeditated. 09 was in no hurry to get off BK.

    ReplyDelete
  114. BK does have "have at it brad" on the rear bumper...

    ReplyDelete
  115. Come on Kyle, roll over, and play dead so you're teammate can win on his home track.

    ReplyDelete
  116. LOL CR... that was Thursday night, not tonight!

    ReplyDelete
  117. Oh my oh my Kurt is going to give himself a stroke...

    ReplyDelete
  118. That, or get the whole field pissed at him!

    ReplyDelete
  119. Newman's leading, for now... lmao!

    ReplyDelete
  120. They cannot even play his radio via NASCAR.com bc it is just one explitive after another...

    ReplyDelete
  121. And, that's different than usual, how? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  122. Getting exciting after that boring start. JMayer may give this six stars!

    ReplyDelete
  123. Now... not so glad I benched the 14 for the 24. fml!

    ReplyDelete
  124. Definitely getting "racy" like a demolition derby!

    ReplyDelete
  125. Clint is a bad boy... but II still like him

    ReplyDelete
  126. DW, always prepared, as usual... "Is that safer barrier?"

    ReplyDelete
  127. karma for Matt....that's for changing lanes before the line, you fool!

    ReplyDelete
  128. Looks like Harvick is going to try to stretch it out the distance.

    ReplyDelete
  129. Boy, Happy dodged a bullet there!

    ReplyDelete
  130. Two of my four guys in that clusterbomb. Go, Clint!

    ReplyDelete
  131. Harvick NARROWLY escaped the mini Big One by INCHES.

    ReplyDelete
  132. Jon, that's what I like about you... you're optimism over Harvick. He, Newman, and Tony, are my Three Amigos!

    ReplyDelete
  133. My team is wiped out...crazy that Burton is in front!!

    ReplyDelete
  134. Jeff Burton in the lead! If Happy can stretch his fuel, he can win.

    ReplyDelete
  135. dang, Vader's 11th...where did he come from?

    ReplyDelete
  136. Hammond has never heard of "big picture" racing? Saying Denny will rough up Kyle. Puleeze!

    ReplyDelete
  137. You sound like Mike Joy Tez...

    ReplyDelete
  138. Hammond works for Fox remember Gene - the land of propaganda and stirring up stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  139. That is optimism, alright. Nice strategy if it goes green... doubt it will.

    ReplyDelete
  140. I have Burton on my fantasy team, as well as Bowyer, Hamlin and Blaney.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Oh boy, let's not get political now! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  142. 90 laps. Still a few yellows, a red, and a GWC, or two, to go.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Junyer... holding up traffic... good job!

    ReplyDelete
  144. I have a far cooler accent than Mike Joy, K :P

    ReplyDelete
  145. I meant FOXsports and FOXsports.com...CR quit trying to stir up trouble like Hammond! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  146. Happy's good on fuel, even good enough for a GWC finish.

    ReplyDelete
  147. So is every one else except 88 and 31, Jon.

    ReplyDelete
  148. I thought I heard the Gibbs cars were going to be 2 laps short.

    ReplyDelete
  149. that was probably Kevin's spotter saying that, lol

    ReplyDelete
  150. on last restart Joy said everyone except 88 and 31 could make it. Of course, you have to consider the source.

    ReplyDelete
  151. Not to worry there will be more cautions...

    ReplyDelete
  152. oh...well then, your boy's looking good, Jon ;)

    ReplyDelete
  153. Kristen, he was backing up for awhile.

    ReplyDelete
  154. Truex is a broken stud...hehehee

    Oh _has_ a broken stud! =P

    ReplyDelete
  155. Can you tell I am getting bored...

    ReplyDelete
  156. Truex has terrible luck. The costs of working for Mikey.

    ReplyDelete
  157. They better start playing up Kyle's gas mileage... if they want to keep viewers.

    ReplyDelete
  158. Yup -- yet one of the happiest teams in the garages...mechanics, crew and drivers. It really is like a family - not many others like it

    ReplyDelete
  159. In the zone.... Larry Mac

    Unlike Larry Mac himself

    ReplyDelete
  160. if Kyle and Denny both run out gifting the win to Kasey, I shall laugh so hard, lol

    ReplyDelete
