  11. Hey Kristen? You out there?

    Carl pulled out of the NWS race this weekend!

    (I guess I could call her...)

  12. SB...

    I just talked to Kristen. Sounds like they're having a great time. She wasn't sure when she could get to a puter so she asked me to relay that she wants to replace Edwards in the NWS race with Justin "Lil Gator" Allgaier...

    Hope that works!

  13. Ms. Beagle...

    I've been victimized by a French Canadian!

    I'll have to take the penalty and place all my hopes in the Australian Will Power in Iowa...

    Thanks SB!

  14. WOOO...I was almost a genius! Thanks for calling me!!

  15. Dwindy-

  17. F1 driver change for the Beagle- dropping Vettel, going with Webber

  18. SB... It was a French Canadian that knocked my Italiano driver out of the race when he was looking at at least a top 10... Slow burn...
