Haha, yeah, it's funny how everything Jimmie does is someone else's fault.

Tony always gets blamed because of his past indisgressions, too. =\

As for JB, I'm looking more forward to Darlington (AKA Jeffington) ;)

/\ Exactly....Tony Stewart is very old school in the way he drive a race car...Dale Sr. did the same stuff and all the blowhards were like "THATS RACIN!!!!!"....Now that a younger guy who does the the same stuff he gets all this blame. Tony Stewart is an awsome driver...he's probably the most talented too. Considering he's won on every level (Bandits, Midgets, Motorcross, Indy, NASCAR, and more). No other NASCAR driver has won as many races in other circuits as Stew has.

anyways....haha yea I think Jeff Burton is due for a win, I have a feeling he's going to be at the front of this weeks race...I miss seeing Ward on TV talking like that hounddog from the cartoons. :rofl: He does alot of local commercials around here or "Schewels Furniture" but it's not the same as him yappin on national television. :)

Yeah, Tony Stewart is by far the most talented driver in probably the world right now.

I miss Ward, too. The only time we see him is on an outdoor channel =\

Ward might be back next year. Open rides right now are #2, possibly #12, #6, #40, #42?, #43?, maybe the #21, #88. Well, Rusty's and Mark's cars are open for sure. I hope one of them win the championship.

Mark Martin has been my favorite driver since 1989, and I've always like Rusty partially cause he doesn't really like Jeffy Gordon. :laugh: Most people don't know what happened to Martin in 1990. He lost the championship by -26. In the third race of the year at Richmond, Nascar found some illegal spacer or maybe it was the carb. but they gave him 10th place points which was a -46 loss. The thing that really sucks is other drivers, *Rusty for sure was caught for the same and didn't get penalized.

I think it was in this order

1. Scott Riggs fault- the hell was he doing up their anyway??

2. JJ and his spotter- hello, the spotter is supose to say "3 wide, stay low"

3. Jr. - a little impatient?

4. Mike Wallace- Next time turn into JJ, spin him and save yourself lol

I don't think Jr. even made enough contact in the first wreck to turn anyone around.

And I can see Ward in the 42 when McMurray moves to the 40. I hear Sterling Marlin will only move to a car that has a hard liquor sponsor or is able to, and that basically screams the RCR 07. Marlin + Burton + Harvick would be neat. Even cooler would be throwing Ward into the 33 and running fulltime. I always wanted Ward and Jeff as teammates.

The way I saw the first wreck (after all the replays)...It's looked like Jr was a bit impatient. He was all over whoever it was in front of him getting him loose in the middle of the pack. It's really hard to put the blame on any one driver for that wreck, but I would say most of it falls with Jr and his impatients to get to the front of the pack.

Hell yea...I'd love to see Jeff and Ward run together. That could be a sick team since they've raced with one another since childhood and know the other so well. I don't know why nobody has tried that before.

Yo man...did you see what junior said about the wreck? He was calling Jimmy Johnson an "idiot" or something. I forget the whole quote but he was basically putting all the blame on johnson. I guess it can just be chalked up to hard racing but they don't seem to be letting it go.

Well....Today my bad luck continues....For some reason this year I'm picking everyone who blows tires, engines, and wrecks. ohhhhh well. Decent race though....with Stew did better, but 10th isn't bad. I thought Burton had a chance until he had to pit, he must have been ****ed.

Yeah, that sucked, he was pounding on his steering wheel.

Man..

At least he moved up to 16th in points, 99 out of 9th and Richmond coming up.

no doubt this should be a good stretch for him...I think I'm heading to the Richmond race. Thats a great place to watch one. Then off to Charlotte next forthe All-Star race :). Thats one of the best you can possibly go to...tons of action!

Go to a local short track. Less people. Cheaper. Sometimes more fun, but Richmond is a good track, it has more than one grove. :)

the night race?? I heard back in 2001 that tickets for that race was already sold out through 2006 :p unless you already have them.

As for the local race tracks, I quit my job at a local dirt track flipping burgers, to go to Slinger on sunday nights and because I didn't really work. I just would sneak off watch the races while getting paid. I might sign-up for the go-kart league/school at ChicagoIndoorRacing.com.

Maybe in a year or two when I'm in NC, I'll be able to get my own dirt track car. Probably buy my uncles 1982 Monte Carlo, to run :)

Yea unless you either know someone that has tickets to sell to you or you are planning on buying them from scalpers then Bristol is pretty much sold out for the rest of our lives :D

It's a great track...the best bet is to buy them at the track for a little higher price...you can normally find them pretty easy once your at the track. I'll probably be doing that this year for the night race. We'll have a brew or two if you do go! :yes:If your not old enough I'll just sneak them to ya :ninja:

haha nice...slap a huge engine in it and tear it up. That kind of racing isn't cheap to get into but you can make a good living doing it if your successful.

I take it I can only use the same driver for a certain period of games? I'm not getting any more points.

Yep 9. That's why it shows the starts as x/9. That way you can't just pick the best drivers each week... you have to be selective when to use them.

Crap, you put a little distance between yourself and me last week. Newman just had to go and lose that tire late in the race. :pinch:
