Hopefully, Yahoo will magically do its thing and replace Junior with Regan Smith.. I assume the 88 car will be available for the league racers to pick.

Who knows. I’ve only got one ride left for Jr. anyway and would have been using him only for Q this week. However, there are some other drivers I would have liked to have changed for the cookie cutter.

Didn’t realize it was a Sat. race. Week kinda got away from me.

Thanks again Norm. Read the article about Jr. this morning. It’s a shame for sure. Wasn’t Regan Smith supposed to have an announcement this week of a ride for next year?

Didn’t have Jr. In this weeks que but thought I did. Putting the best sled dogs in the harness for Charlotte and yes summer is ending in Oregon this week as snows a-com’n.

the last caution on Lap 15

YELLOW FLAG: Jeff Burton and David Ragan crashed on the frontstretch as the green was coming out. Tony Stewart also gets some damage in the chain-reaction mishap.

I am actually watching live tonight, not on the the DVR. I am sick about Dale Jr. and what this means for the sport. I am also sick that Speed has lost the Formula 1 TV contract. Those Speed guys are like family to me.
