My Yahoo starters....994336Why didn't I start 43 and 27? Ugh.
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?
Juan's new logo....http://desmond.yfrog.com/Himg618/scaled.php?tn=0&server=618&filename=oh9dm.jpg&xsize=640&ysize=640
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).
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. :)
Juan was a race winner before he came South (North?) to NASCAR. More than I can say for the Go-Daddy hype mid-packer.
I agree with that, but they make him sound like he was the greatest F1 driver ever...and he was far from that, lol
Kristen's ignoring me on twitter....think it had something to do with the hockey results?
Vancouver will follow Calgary and Montreal as NHL champs the year after they held the Olympics.
I so hope so :)
potential problem for your boy....
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.
is Sadler on standby for Menard still?
Who, Kenseth? *One night stand* lol
Sadler didn't practice the car at all yesterday, but I imagine he's still there.
yeah, something about a vibration...unless he's just listening to the Beach Boys on the radio, lol
Kyle, JJ, and Jr running faster than leader.
TSN just said that Hildebrand won the 500....Indycar website still says Wheldon however.
Hey boys! I am only on lap 3 trying to catch up.Ignoring you on twitter!??! I haven't logged on in about 4 days...major in the weeds at work this week - almost forgot to change my drivers. I am racing the 99,5,43,6.I owe ya a starbucks Tez, I know, I know...=)Lets hope MY National Guard driver is in a position to win it coming out of turn 4....california dreamin....
You missed nothing so far, Kris.
what lap is live?Tez I just followed you...I only have a Sharks colored shirt, not jersey! I do have a teal feather boa though... =)
just fast forward it, K...you won't have missed much, lol
Lots of rumors about Panther protesting their car being passed under caution coming to the checkers. Panther denied it.
oooo nice, that makes 5 people now, go me! :P
Had to watch the pitstops - my buddy dave is on the #17 - must have missed that loose lug Matty is concerned about on lap 59That 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...)
WTG, Tez! I'll expect no less after Carl hits the wall coming off four on the last lap tonight.
why is streme standing by for biffle?
okay I am live! time to turn on the cuss machine - Kurts radio...LOL
was there any truth to the fuel number crunchers at Ganassi having fake beards and had their Penske logos taped over? :P
Bif is sick, S&P Stremme standing by. Must have no one else available. lol
stick Vettel in there....he's winning everything else, lol
Kyle Petty has been stirring up Jr nation on twitter all weekend, funny stuff.
Yeah, Stremme + capable car = crash
Ah...poor biffI didnt hear anything about them taping over the Penske logos.....funny!
ooh like the wet tshirt contest the drivers are doing inside the car...hot! LOL
500 finish video up on youtube. Yellow light came on AFTER Wheldon completed pass.
Hey Speedy! Just wait, Tez is doctoring, uh, editing a vid of the finish right now. Wait til it hits youtube. lol
I was only kidding, Kristen....just found it amusing that they ran out of fuel in quals last week and again today, lol
heck no, I like Wheldon!
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?
Please tell us how the vacuum from the lead car pulls paper from the grille of the trailing car. ONE MORE TIME!
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...
This race already seems more exciting than the All-Star was.
LMAO KLV.... Now, how many titles has JJ won?
Marcos up to 6th....Biffle going off his nut on the radio, lol
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?)
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!
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)
They are making Mikey's book into a movie?!?! Am I actually going to have to read that book?!?!?
how many did DW win?
Matt is Kyle's only friend. lol Kyle held up Carl yesterday for 4-5 laps then moved over immediately for Matt.
"How many laps until the next stop"= Are we there, yet?
Oh ya oh ya...hamlin gonna blow??
Trifecta Season to DateDW: 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.
Rusty: Dwindy's got a fast hotrod under him and those other cats need to catch up fast.
What's the kinder gentler Kurt saying, Kristen?
"Son of a b*tch" over and over...and now radio silence=) thats my boy!
my yahoo team; Vader, Burton, Kahne and Robby.
woo yeah, go Ambrose!
He blamed his radio tirades on the media earlier in the week. I didn't even read how he came to that conclusion. lol
dang its 5p already! gotta start prepping dinner.
Tez... Robby? Gordon? There really should be a Class D, for S&Ps.
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.
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.
and pop goes the Cupcake.
Suzie Homemaker Oven overheated the Cupcakes.
dang poor JMac...and 33 tooI heard Tony was on fire. Missed it.
I saw it, and I liked it. He was tired of questions that made no sense.
"cautions breed cautions" - over under on how many times DW says this in next 5 min??
Still more exciting than the All-Star race? Yes!
Whatcha cookin' us for supper?
Rack of lamb on grill...not sure what else yet!
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.
I vote grilled asparagus with lemon butter sauce
We had grilled chicken and broccoli alfredo.
Yum!We are outta asparagus...corn on the cob looking likely
When does Larry explain the 'comers and goers' as the race went from day to night?
OMG we are only half way! oy oy oy this race kills me...
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.
that's what the red flag is for....stop, hammertime!
woot Bye Denny!
That's from @nascarcasm... most of his tweets are pretty good.
yea narscarcasm is funny on twitter
wooot! Kurt to the lead!
Kenseth had to come back in to fill gas tank. Ugh!
those new fuel tanks are tough to get the connection right on...learning curve.
is it just me or has Kyle seemingly had a quiet night so far?
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...
never mind, he's in 2nd I see, lol
Just keep smilin' Dwindy...
Hello, goodbye, Dwindy.
wow Kurt BARELY snuck thru there
yep, hi and bye, Dwindy :)
Kyle's been around 7-10th since the first pit stops. Waiting on the night.
anyone got any suggestions for Trevor's nickname? Poor kid I hope they figure out what caused that inflammation.
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.
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!
I know what happened to Carl!!!
Dinger is mad at Carl for air-pushing him. Promises the same.
Kyle has eagle-eyes!Yea Trevor is amazing kid - should be able to write his own ticket.
Gotta love NASCAR rules... from wave around to only cars on the lead lap. WTF!
ah Nascar nascar...
Gilly looking very racy... considering DW saw him dropping all that fluid to bring out the last caution.
it's rather warm here....opening the windows, back soon.
Ravel's Bolero in a Burger King commercial??? Who's the oxymoron who came up with that bright idea?
Landon practicing his victory slide? Oh yeah!
I missed the BK spot, and, after youtubing Ravel's Bolero, I still have no idea how it meshed with a Whopper.
Yikes....there goes one of my fantasy drivers!
I hear Bolero, Ithink Bo Derek, not BK.
when you hear Bolero do you think BK = Brad Keslowski?=P
Kyle practicing his victory slide!
How about Gilly taking the blame while standing beside Mark? Mark was very weasel-like.
Mark is always weasel like! Finally getting racy if only DW would shut up all would be okay with this race!
If Jr finishes in the top 10 does that mean the end of the world- since Danica also finished in the top 10????
ESPN Sports Center would definitely implode, SB.
Would they be able to find enough highlights to fill the program??????
Jr flirting with top 5...then what!Kesenth looking to win you a 'fecta Gene
There goes Wild Thing again!
The booers are getting their money's worth at CMS.
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.
wow rare mistake by JJ 's crew
I bet Chad will be frowning, lol
Gonna be tight on gas from here.
Just heard Harvick's name for the first time all night. He's The Closer, you know.
High praise from DW, "as good a race as I've seen him (Jr) run all year."
Jr's last top-5 on a 1.5 miler.... 2008 Coke 600.
wow...there goes the split screen again! way to steal ESPN's thunder Fox
TSN didn't even go to a break, just had the camera following Biffle with no commentary, lol
Kenseth way short on fuel. Come on yellow!
woot woot! go Jr!
and Vader blows up trapping Matt a lap down!
Hope Matty got enough gas for the GWC
Ah! Potty mouth Chad!!
They have Lucky dogs with less than 10 to go now.
Just making up those rules as they go depending on who is lined up where!
Mike Joy just stole my bump drafting under caution line!
Gosh dang Jr almost lost the engine shutting it down...
one to go...Kurt is good to go in p7!
I noticed it at Darlington... they were still giving lucky dogs for the GWC.
Great day of racing!
Second time I heard Harvick's name all night.
Dang...Jr almost had it...turn 4 curse on National Guard team...Kurt finished 4th - amazing
yeah, and the first was during the driver lineup announcement, Gene.
Enjoy your Memorial Day all...g'nite!
they didn't deserve it, but congrats to the #29 bunch...and have a good day off tomorrow all you Americans :)
