Well, it's Saturday night (not Sunday), it's on the East Coast (not West), and it's a short track (not a superspeedway). Oh wait a minute, that means the first of 2 digits in the winning caution pool pick will be a crooked number.

I like racing on both ____ (flat) and / (banked) tracks.. tho I like fast more than one groove racing..

This is definitely getting down to the quick of it Chase-wise.. time to let it all hang out.

Thank you for the ping! Now my favorite memory of Richmond. Martin Truex Jr. riding the wall all the way around 1 and 2 last year after Mike Wallace turned him on his side. Yee Haw! NASCAR got made at my man Truex for getting mad.

This link is to a bunch of pics FROM THE PITS at Richmond 2005.

Cold Passes, access to the pit road ONLY during hot laps.
Once all practice is over, passes allowed us into the garage 30 mins after practice was complete.

LARGE PICS...May not be very DIAL UP FRIENDLY...Sorry 'bout that...

And here I thought it was 4,000 laps. ;-)
Ok, eleven (11) which still meets the criteria of double digits and odd #'s. OK?

Here is some more info to chew on from Jayski's;

Chase Clinching Scenarios Heading to Richmond:
Only 117 points separate positions three through 10 in the current Nextel Cup Series standings. Only 147 points separate positions three through 11. A driver can gain a maximum of 156 points over another competitor in each event. The 11th-place driver, Kasey Kahne, can move as high as third in the standings following Saturday’s Chevy Rock & Roll 400 at California Speedway. He is currently just 30 points behind points leader Jeff Burton. Any driver in positions three through 10 can fall from the top 10 following Saturday’s event. Only standings leader Matt Kenseth and second-place Jimmie Johnson have clinched Chase berths.
The current drivers in positions three through 10 in the standings will clinch a Chase berth with the following finishes Saturday, regardless of how other competitors finish:
#29-Kevin Harvick – 40th
#24-Jeff Gordon – 25th
#5-Kyle Busch – 22nd
#8-Dale Earnhardt Jr. – 16th
#11-Denny Hamlin – 16th
#20-Tony Stewart – seventh
#6-Mark Martin – fourth
#31-Jeff Burton – fourth
