Haha, Kj!

Hahahahahahaha, Mr. Joe.

I really liked Denny during the first part of last season.  But, he started turning into this whiney, lack-luster guy towards the end, and my soft spot for him has done hardened.

My up-and-comer now is Kyle Busch.  He can drive like a mad-man with a serious method to his madness.  What talent! And, a truly original driver - he definitely has his own style on the track.  I think he will be cream-of-the-crop.  And he is learning to handle himself so well, publically.  He's maturing better than I every could have thought possble.  When Smoke blows over, I bet I'm left standing in Kyle's camp.

"And, a truly original driver - he definitely has his own style on the track."

And that style is what? Crashing? Sorry, I couldn't resist. ;)

Ah, Kj,

Obviously you missed the truck race last night!  Kyle's truck was one of two (or maybe three, depending on the camera angle) that set off one of the most spectacular Big Ones in truck racing that I've ever seen.  Really narrowed down the field, but "Rowdy" Busch (his truck racing moniker - had it as the signature on his truck last year)came out unscathed.  Except that the other drivers had a some pretty scathing things to say about him - which he handled very gracefully:  Good Kyle, cookie!

And, if I understand correctly, he didn't crash in the Nationwide today....;):):D

Lap 19 - Speed usually repeats the truck race during the week, you should try to record it if you cain't watch the re-run.  I was really concerned, thought, OH-Oh, someone isn't gonna walk away this time.  But, all was well.  Except for some big-time P-O'd drivers!  Watching their post-wreck interviews was fun & revealing!

I'm sure they'll be using the Flaming Truck images on the opening clips of the cup race tomorrow:  you know, that little montage they do as the day's coverage opens.  And, it'll be a regular clip all season long in the opening truck-series montage.  VERY Dramatic, a fireball let loose across the track, and it sure looked like driver BBQ to me (thank God it wasn't anything like).  The footage of all the emergency vehicles coming out is something, too.

THANK YOU, younglobo! Somebody who feels the same way I do.

I get sick and tired of all the pre-race crap. I don't mind interviews, I don't mind analyzing who's got the best chance at winning what, I don't mind being introduced to the new faces on the block, but if I wanted to watch a concert, I'd turn on VH1 or MTV!

if i have nothing else to do its alright, but otherwise i hate the pre-race crap to. (unless of course its Junior then its alright)

Ryan Newman won Daytona, for yall that didnt see it. Junior finished 9th. pretty good place for the start of the season i guess.

Tony Stewart remains my man.

By the way, I love that ad where the brat boy in the NASCAR driver's suit is so bratty and says, "It's my way or the highway." It is a GEICO ad, consistently the funniest on TV.

Okay, I'm one of those "fools" who stayed up till 2 AM waiting to learn whether they were actually going to run the race. Of course, that's my usual bed time. Being retired has its benefits, too -- including staying up half the night, usually reading but sometimes waiting to learn what's going on with a race.

Looking back, they shouldn't have even tried starting the thing. What did they run, 87 laps? And how many red flags during those 87 laps? Guys got taken out because the track was weeping. Grr...

So, who watched the race today, and what did you think? It was nice to see Junior have a good finish, but clenched my teeth when Gordon and Kenseth got tangled up. I was going, "OMG, he's gonna get taken out again in someone else's mess!"

At least he was man enough to admit it was his fault when they interviewed him afterwards. Not all of the drivers are gracious enough to say, "Yeah, I screwed up." Some, but not all.
