  2. howdy Gene...I presume your prediction of a dull race is based on there only being a certain amount of excitement each weekend and the F1 and Indy races nicked it all, no?

  4. I detest them making Juan out to be better than he is...simple fact is that, even with the best engine and best tyres, he couldn't close the deal in F1 ('03 title) and got spanked by Kimi in the same team ('05 and '06).

    ReplyDelete
  5. Hey Tez... Definitely no way that the 600 can compete with the late race antics from both races earlier today.

    Plus, the more boring it is, the more likely for Kenseth to be there at the end. :)

    ReplyDelete
  6. Juan was a race winner before he came South (North?) to NASCAR. More than I can say for the Go-Daddy hype mid-packer.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I agree with that, but they make him sound like he was the greatest F1 driver ever...and he was far from that, lol

    ReplyDelete
  8. Kristen's ignoring me on twitter....think it had something to do with the hockey results?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Vancouver will follow Calgary and Montreal as NHL champs the year after they held the Olympics.

    ReplyDelete
  10. potential problem for your boy....

    ReplyDelete
  11. Plenty were griping about the red flag at Monaco. Blaming that for letting Sea Bass change tires.... they were all going to change when it was yellow... red had no effect.

    ReplyDelete
  12. is Sadler on standby for Menard still?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Who, Kenseth? *One night stand* lol

    ReplyDelete
  14. Sadler didn't practice the car at all yesterday, but I imagine he's still there.

    ReplyDelete
  15. yeah, something about a vibration...unless he's just listening to the Beach Boys on the radio, lol

    ReplyDelete
  16. Kyle, JJ, and Jr running faster than leader.

    ReplyDelete

  22. Lots of rumors about Panther protesting their car being passed under caution coming to the checkers. Panther denied it.

    ReplyDelete
  23. oooo nice, that makes 5 people now, go me! :P

    ReplyDelete
  24. Had to watch the pitstops - my buddy dave is on the #17 - must have missed that loose lug Matty is concerned about on lap 59


    That is a good point Gene - it was under yellow. That kid is from here - Sausalito - He almost got it on 3 wheels! (insert better than danica joke here...)

    ReplyDelete
  25. WTG, Tez! I'll expect no less after Carl hits the wall coming off four on the last lap tonight.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  34. ooh like the wet tshirt contest the drivers are doing inside the car...hot! LOL

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hey Speedy! Just wait, Tez is doctoring, uh, editing a vid of the finish right now. Wait til it hits youtube. lol

    ReplyDelete
  37. I was only kidding, Kristen....just found it amusing that they ran out of fuel in quals last week and again today, lol

    ReplyDelete
  38. you could tell me anything about IRL Tez, I dont pay any attention except when Helio is on!


    anyone know what Brad has on the back of the #2?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Please tell us how the vacuum from the lead car pulls paper from the grille of the trailing car. ONE MORE TIME!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Okay Gene, ya see when you pull up on a car in front of you it creates a vacuum and allows for whatever dog is all up in your grill to fall off...

    ReplyDelete
  41. This race already seems more exciting than the All-Star was.

    ReplyDelete
  42. LMAO KLV.... Now, how many titles has JJ won?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Marcos up to 6th....Biffle going off his nut on the radio, lol

    ReplyDelete
  44. wow...biffle is sick. that was funny!


    Ah, tough one Gene...five, five dollar footlong, no no no Five Time!! Five TIME!! FIVE TIME!!! (sound like DW enough?)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Dang it, I was going to go with Matty for the sweep in the trifecta but I think Carl will still pull it off. Love matty!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Creative writing exercise for when the race gets boring-

    Broadcast the 2011 Trifecta season to date from the viewpoint of your three "favorite" talking heads (and no, thay don't all have to work for the same network)

    ReplyDelete
  47. They are making Mikey's book into a movie?!?! Am I actually going to have to read that book?!?!?

    ReplyDelete
  48. Matt is Kyle's only friend. lol Kyle held up Carl yesterday for 4-5 laps then moved over immediately for Matt.

    ReplyDelete
  49. "How many laps until the next stop"= Are we there, yet?

    ReplyDelete
  50. Oh ya oh ya...hamlin gonna blow??

    ReplyDelete
  51. Trifecta Season to Date

    DW: Once ol' Four Time gets going, no one can stop him.

    Joy: He picks drivers like Wild Thing drives. Hard to believe he never even watched NASCAR until a couple of years ago.

    Larry: You're going to have to do your homework to beat the Dwindy One.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Rusty: Dwindy's got a fast hotrod under him and those other cats need to catch up fast.

    ReplyDelete
  53. What's the kinder gentler Kurt saying, Kristen?

    ReplyDelete
  54. "Son of a b*tch" over and over...and now radio silence

    =) thats my boy!

    ReplyDelete
  55. my yahoo team; Vader, Burton, Kahne and Robby.

    ReplyDelete
  56. He blamed his radio tirades on the media earlier in the week. I didn't even read how he came to that conclusion. lol

    ReplyDelete
  57. dang its 5p already! gotta start prepping dinner.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Tez... Robby? Gordon? There really should be a Class D, for S&Ps.

    ReplyDelete
  59. not quite Gene, he blamed the media for blasting him for having a "personality", first they want drivers to have one and then when they show some they get blasted for it.

    Several media harsh on him - calling him a baby or a jerk...lots of work for TR this week.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Oh. Yes, they hate the robotic answers, then they get mad when Tony calls their questions stupid. Smoke was in fine form Thursday in the media center.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Suzie Homemaker Oven overheated the Cupcakes.

    ReplyDelete
  62. dang poor JMac...and 33 too

    I heard Tony was on fire. Missed it.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I saw it, and I liked it. He was tired of questions that made no sense.

    ReplyDelete
  64. "cautions breed cautions" - over under on how many times DW says this in next 5 min??

    ReplyDelete
  65. Still more exciting than the All-Star race? Yes!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Rack of lamb on grill...not sure what else yet!

    ReplyDelete
  67. 3 times on the over/under. Although, the whole Fox crew made it through the entire All-Star race without mentioning the "dreaded aero-push" even once. And, if there ever was a case for it, it was last Saturday.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I vote grilled asparagus with lemon butter sauce

    ReplyDelete
  69. We had grilled chicken and broccoli alfredo.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Yum!

    We are outta asparagus...corn on the cob looking likely

    ReplyDelete
  71. When does Larry explain the 'comers and goers' as the race went from day to night?

    ReplyDelete
  72. OMG we are only half way! oy oy oy this race kills me...

    ReplyDelete
  73. Retweet from Hanny(too good not to share here)

    Reports of a hammer lying on white line in Turn 1. Safety crews claim they can't touch this.

    ReplyDelete
  74. that's what the red flag is for....stop, hammertime!

    ReplyDelete
  75. That's from @nascarcasm... most of his tweets are pretty good.

    ReplyDelete
  76. yea narscarcasm is funny on twitter

    ReplyDelete
  77. Kenseth had to come back in to fill gas tank. Ugh!

    ReplyDelete
  78. those new fuel tanks are tough to get the connection right on...learning curve.

    ReplyDelete
  79. is it just me or has Kyle seemingly had a quiet night so far?

    ReplyDelete
  80. Hey everybody!

    I've been on mind altering drugs... just woke up and now have to go to work... Life's great, sure would hate to miss it. What is the cure Kristen?

    Gotta go...

    ReplyDelete
  81. never mind, he's in 2nd I see, lol

    ReplyDelete
  82. wow Kurt BARELY snuck thru there

    ReplyDelete
  83. Kyle's been around 7-10th since the first pit stops. Waiting on the night.

    ReplyDelete
  84. anyone got any suggestions for Trevor's nickname? Poor kid I hope they figure out what caused that inflammation.

    ReplyDelete
  85. No suggestions, but HOW did DEI AND Mikey let him get away!?!?!? I don't care if he had no driving talent, he is amazing off the track! A 20 year old with that personality.... the Wood Bros should be letting him meet with potential sponsors.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Kyle spotted the hammer, or mallet as he called it, earlier. Now he see beer cans in turn one. Leading the race, AND supervising the clean up crew!

    ReplyDelete
  87. I know what happened to Carl!!!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Dinger is mad at Carl for air-pushing him. Promises the same.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Kyle has eagle-eyes!

    Yea Trevor is amazing kid - should be able to write his own ticket.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Gotta love NASCAR rules... from wave around to only cars on the lead lap. WTF!

    ReplyDelete
  91. Gilly looking very racy... considering DW saw him dropping all that fluid to bring out the last caution.

    ReplyDelete
  92. it's rather warm here....opening the windows, back soon.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Ravel's Bolero in a Burger King commercial??? Who's the oxymoron who came up with that bright idea?

    ReplyDelete
  94. Landon practicing his victory slide? Oh yeah!

    ReplyDelete
  95. I missed the BK spot, and, after youtubing Ravel's Bolero, I still have no idea how it meshed with a Whopper.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Yikes....there goes one of my fantasy drivers!

    ReplyDelete
  97. I hear Bolero, Ithink Bo Derek, not BK.

    ReplyDelete
  98. when you hear Bolero do you think BK = Brad Keslowski?

    =P

    ReplyDelete
  99. Kyle practicing his victory slide!

    ReplyDelete
  100. How about Gilly taking the blame while standing beside Mark? Mark was very weasel-like.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Mark is always weasel like! Finally getting racy if only DW would shut up all would be okay with this race!

    ReplyDelete
  102. If Jr finishes in the top 10 does that mean the end of the world- since Danica also finished in the top 10????

    ReplyDelete
  103. ESPN Sports Center would definitely implode, SB.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Would they be able to find enough highlights to fill the program??????

    ReplyDelete
  105. Jr flirting with top 5...then what!

    Kesenth looking to win you a 'fecta Gene

    ReplyDelete
  106. There goes Wild Thing again!

    ReplyDelete
  107. The booers are getting their money's worth at CMS.

    ReplyDelete
  108. boobirds! junior fans gotta be happy with his run - now he'll have to do the National Guard Shuffle and hit the wall in 4 coming to the checkers.

    ReplyDelete
  109. wow rare mistake by JJ 's crew

    ReplyDelete
  110. I bet Chad will be frowning, lol

    ReplyDelete
  111. Gonna be tight on gas from here.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Just heard Harvick's name for the first time all night. He's The Closer, you know.

    ReplyDelete
  113. High praise from DW, "as good a race as I've seen him (Jr) run all year."

    ReplyDelete
  114. Jr's last top-5 on a 1.5 miler.... 2008 Coke 600.

    ReplyDelete
  115. wow...there goes the split screen again! way to steal ESPN's thunder Fox

    ReplyDelete
  116. TSN didn't even go to a break, just had the camera following Biffle with no commentary, lol

    ReplyDelete
  117. Kenseth way short on fuel. Come on yellow!

    ReplyDelete
  118. and Vader blows up trapping Matt a lap down!

    ReplyDelete
  119. Hope Matty got enough gas for the GWC

    ReplyDelete
  120. They have Lucky dogs with less than 10 to go now.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Just making up those rules as they go depending on who is lined up where!

    ReplyDelete
  122. Mike Joy just stole my bump drafting under caution line!

    ReplyDelete
  123. Gosh dang Jr almost lost the engine shutting it down...

    ReplyDelete
  124. one to go...Kurt is good to go in p7!

    ReplyDelete
  125. I noticed it at Darlington... they were still giving lucky dogs for the GWC.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Second time I heard Harvick's name all night.

    ReplyDelete
  127. Dang...Jr almost had it...turn 4 curse on National Guard team...

    Kurt finished 4th - amazing

    ReplyDelete
  128. yeah, and the first was during the driver lineup announcement, Gene.

    ReplyDelete
  129. Enjoy your Memorial Day all...g'nite!

    ReplyDelete
