Well, for Pete's sake if I can't pick Flash who?? Wahhhh lol

Oh well, instead of working on my team I've been checking out the photos over at Schraders M&M's Night Of Stars from last night here

I see pics of SlowCasey, Schrader, Kenny, Truex, flipper, Blaney, Hamilton and Jr (in street clothes) because since last years Sonoma accident he's not allowed to drive anything other than his Cup and Busch cars.

Night Of Stars report......


The race was a hoot. Experienced guys and guys with little idea of what they were doing. Spencer managed to scrape the wall twice during hot laps and his car wasn't able to start the race. You could really tell from the lines the drivers were taking through the corners which ones actually know how to drive dirt. You can't drive around the corners at a dirt track, certainly not the high banks of Pevely, you have to slide around and have your car pointed correctly when you're done to attack the next straightaway. Not everyone figured that out or was able to be consistent. They ran 8 laps, inverted the field, then 8 more. Martin managed to spin in the first half, though without hitting anything, and finished that half last, which meant he started on the pole for the second half. He actually managed to lead two laps before being passed by guys who knew what they were doing. Experienced guys won both halves -- Edwards the first and Kenny Wallace the second. We did get a backflip (taking off and landing on the track surface) from Carl. Kenny announced that he had his own signature move to introduce ...

the "dirt roll" somersault! He is a character! I must admit that I couldn't see that area of the frontstretch due to the people crowding the fence, but the response was cheers.

Dale did a gr8 job with the flags -- but of course. He mentioned afterwards that this was the first time he'd flagged a race, but he handled it like a pro. 1-to-go signal, green flag, caution flag, restart with the green, white, and checkered. Then the same in the second half, except for a caution. He looked like he was having a blast, and we did get that wonderful grin of his as he cheered Martin onward as they started the pace laps. That certainly seemed more fun for him than power-signing. Needed no help from Pevely's regular flagman, except to reach for the white and checkered flags from where they hang. The announcer teased him about not being impartial, since he was cheering on Martin.

One of our boys works at the Auto Zone headquarters in Memphis. They are going to be unveiling the 23 car for Kenny Wallace in the NASCAR/Busch series. Eddie our boy is going to do the unveiling.
