These are 3500 lb stock cars, they are pretty robust. It might be too rough for OW.

What ever took down FR took down the FR league and really messed up the scores...

I was lurking on the thread talking with family in Knoxville.
The race was one to remember.

So we weren’t able to talk about the exciting finish that Robot pulled off. What a night!

I guess we’ll see everyone next week at Phoenix!

NASCAR says that because that patch wasn’t painted black, they gotta do another GWC...

DW was really worried about the patch and I guess it’s all because it didn’t match the rest of the track.

Whoda thunk.

Yahoo FR league gave me points for the driver I ran (Edwards) but took away an allocation for a driver I didn’t. (Stewart). Go figure.

At least I didn’t run J.J.

Thank you John - that was the most bizarre race.

There was also a race to the porta-potty

All I can say is leave it to JPM to hit the jet dryer.

Amazing pics - may I use them on my blog?

Nascar and track workers did a hell of a job fixing that mess.

Also wanted to share with Jr fans one part of scanner recap.

TJ: 32 47 lined up behind you just kinda riding there. Jr: Is thaaat Terry Labonte behind me pushing? (loud happy voice)........... MAN — tell him IT’s a PLEASURE - the Iceman!!!!

Jr would have won if he had help. Did you see Danica taking down her fire suit racing to the bath room. My wife said it looked like me pulling down my suspenders when I race in from the garden...

Biffle is definitely on my poop list.. even tho I had him picked.

I could have broke 300 if he and Junior had passed Matt.. 8-]

How ya doing? Ya up for a thread or two this year? I’m winging it this year, no schedule yet..

I’m probably going to do the bulk of the threads this year and just have a few specials from the regular contributors here. NYT is up for Dover and Texas. Glock is tight on bandwidth and is open.

I missed that, but wondered - it would be much harder for a female to have to use the porta-potty :)

When I go there I don’t see a pic was it really her high school pic? Or, if it was derogatory there was a sports guy in San Diego who got suspended for saying something about her. Maybe they took it down.
