  3. Hey Speedy! I have a work party tonight so will only be around for about an hour and half...maybe a third of this long race! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  4. Hey Kristen! I'm like the Beagle--I'll be in and out.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Hey Jon! No Happy this week in the 'fecta eh?

    ReplyDelete
  6. Hey Lug Nuts!

    I'll be here for a little while...

    Kristen, you've got a work party? I get to go work! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  7. Hey Dwindy - I think I'd rather be partying than working... =)

    ReplyDelete
  8. Yeah, Kurt crashed. Kristen jinxed him :o)

    ReplyDelete
  9. Kristen, this isn't one of Happy's better tracks, despite him finishing 2nd in 2003.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I did jinx him on twitter I was congratulating him on his 3rd place run in practice and 2 min later wreck! doh!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I understand Penske had 4 shop engineers in addition to their regular crew at Darlington this week to get the double deuce in proper order...

    ReplyDelete
  12. What I heard as well Dwindy - problem is they all have completely opposite ideas on how to tune the car...me thinks too many cooks in the kitchen but what do I know.

    Kurt clearly not handling any better after that slide off turn 2!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Speaking of Happy, he's got a good car tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Jon - any new thoughts on your ability to come to Sonoma?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Kristen, I'm going to try to swing it, but I'm not making any guarantees. I'll probably know in the next two weeks. But it's looking like a possibility.

    ReplyDelete
  16. well at least its still a possibility! I just got my creds approved so I am all set...whew!

    poor JJ Yeley...

    ReplyDelete
  17. He always seems to run well in the Tornados scheme.

    ReplyDelete
  18. jon...

    You got a paint scheme cookin' for Kevin?

    ReplyDelete
  19. I was a bit surprised Tornado's didnt use the horrible weather as a donation/PR event. Kurt's PR guy still has no power...

    ReplyDelete
  20. Carl has splitter on the brain - better refocus!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Well, the usual suspects have gathered at the top...

    ReplyDelete
  22. Aw geez, the stripe count!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Well Folks...


    I'm off (physically as well as mentally! LOL)

    Enjoy the race!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Caution out, Gilly cut a tire and slapped the wall.

    ReplyDelete
  25. C-ya Dwindy, I am not far behind...
    OUr buddy Dave the official is working the 24 pit tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Jamie Mac and JPM taking two tires--interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  27. JPM coming to the front to find Newman?? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  28. JPM gave JJ a "love tap"!!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Okay gotta go too...hope you guys enjoy the rest of the race!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Katie eating a healthy portion of voodoo duck jerky dipped in voodoo duck sauce(the humans are having Chinese take out for dinner)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm here, bit late but here, lol

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hey Tez!

    SB, hope Katie's eating well!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. have to say I've missed a fair chunk of the race...watching the Vancouver/Nashville NHL playoff instead, lol

    ReplyDelete
  34. Kyle about to put his brother a lap down--and thar he goes!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Nice save by Truex--too bad he flattened the right rear tire.

    ReplyDelete
  36. unlucky he stopped after the cone so had to go around again.

    ReplyDelete
  37. and once again we witness the power of the Beagle's voodoo :o)

    ReplyDelete
  38. SB, can we see the Beagle's voodoo hex the Duck to a lap-down finish??

    ReplyDelete
  39. Kyle Busch in for an unscheduled pit stop.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Which means the Duck is out front. BOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Caution out for JJ's wreck.

    ReplyDelete
  42. DAMN!! Vickers and Ragan wreck! Popped Vickers' car like a can opener!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Is Marcos a magnet for wrecks tonight? None of those wrecks have been of his doing! Logano's the third driver that's gotten loose and made contact with Ambrose!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Yeah, and he's still having a solid run! As for Harvick, he's checking out on the field now.

    ReplyDelete
  45. what was Menard thinking, running over his own pit guy! :o

    ReplyDelete
  46. I hope Kahne picks the inside, but I think he'll pick the outside. If he picks the inside, Harvick will sing "Blue Bayou" as he passes him.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I think the pit guy made a last-second decision to clean the grill off the 27 and Menard was not aware of it.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Pit road is not a friendly place to be tonight

    ReplyDelete
  49. dang, Nashville force a game 6 with a win in Vancouver :(

    ReplyDelete
  50. Tez, won't matter--whoever wins this series will lose to San Jose. I think this is San Jose's year to win the Cup.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I don't know, Jon...both Boston and Tampa look mighty impressive too.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Jr with a pit road penalty--tough break.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Tez, I HATE Boston!! I DON'T want them to win the Cup!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I'm like that with Chicago! :P

    ReplyDelete
  55. I got my trifecta picks backwards if Carl wins this, lol

    ReplyDelete
  56. C'MON, SOMEONE CATCH EDWARDS!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I've got Hamster in the Trifecta.

    ReplyDelete
  58. another EC engine, what is up with that this year?

    ReplyDelete
  59. Either way, Edwards is a sitting Duck.

    ReplyDelete
  60. maybe not, lots of others pitted too.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I'd have done the opposite of Edwards. If he pits, stay out. If he stays out, pit.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Kyle Busch got into Harvick, who got into Bowyer. Busch flat out wrecked the two RCR cars. Per Harvick's crew chief: we'll get him (Kyle Busch) another time.

    ReplyDelete
  63. that was rather funny with Kevin and Kyle, lol

    ReplyDelete
  64. Kyle Busch flat out wrecked Ambrose this time!!
