    Cup - Denny "My Turn To Fire The Crew" Hamlin

    F1 - Fernando "I'm Too Sexy For Turkey" Alonso

  5. the Kentucky what? Only horse race that matters is the Melbourne Cup, every Australian knows that ;)

    NW - Carl "watch me use Ricky to shove Kyle out of my way this week" Edwards

    for those interested, people on youtube are putting up the V8 Supercars and the British Touring Car races, full length, a couple days after they air. This is good news as you don't have to wait a week for the V8's on Speed and until December for the BTCC :D

    Moseby- I didn't realize you had picked Joey Logano for the NW race until it was too late to make a change. I gave you credit for Denny Hamlin's finish since he was in the #20 this week.

  14. Close Trifecta this week. What a finish in the Cup race! Tuesday should be an interesting day, with possible dunce hats being handed out by NASCAR...

    I'd like to thank Ryan Newman for being the best finishing Cup driver this week. ...and of course SpeedBeagle for putting this up, week after week, without the aid of eyesight!

  15. Oh! I almost forgot! HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

  16. CR... I think congrats are in order! WTG!

    I'll echo your sentiments to SB and all the Mothers out there!

  17. Wow! That was a wild ride. Looks like Darlington may be the new Talladega.

    Congrats to CR on his 2nd win of the season. Dwindy still leads the Chase for the Coveted Triple Lug Nut Trophy by virtue of the tie breaker.
