It’s watching this race in 1999 (while doing laundry) that I first became a NASCAR fan. That was the race that Dale E bumped Rusty Wallace I believe. I liked that Gordon said he just trying to win the races and he doesn’t care about the point standings.

I’ve heard that there was once thoughts that maybe Tennessee would play Virginia Tech at Bristol. That would be quite a site.

That's why they call him champion.

I keep telling Brains France that the west coast needs a Bristol type track. I think his email server must be down or something, no reply yet.

Rain....I'll have to go look that word up.

We are?

Scottsdale dems choose algore?

That’s like rooting for JPM at a NASCAR tailgate party.

My oldest boy, however, threatened to wear an algore 200 tee shirt to a huge gunshow.

Oh sorry I know how that is.

It was Terry Labonte, Dale was leading..Terry on 4 new tires passes 4 cars and taps Dale and takes the lead. Earnhardt came back and tapped Labonte and spins him wrecking Rudd, MM and Smoke. Earnhardt wins, got a lot of boos. He said he didn’t mean to turn him only rattle his cage.

Allen, White, Clanton...some that I saw. ??

Who ever that was on pit road, that truck has some dents!

Maybe on the only pit stop. Something says this is going to be a wreck-fest. Too many new ones getting an education at Bristol tonight!

The old man is first out of the pit's - Mark Martin!

Brendan Gaughan - home town boy. Promotional deal, he drove his race truck up I-15 to the speedway. Very cool.
