It has never been wrecked, clipped,, or even had a bent front stub.

The suspension has been changed each year, upgraded as necessary, but the same basic geomenty has been used since 2008.

The Lad likes the Tin Top the way it was built, so why change it.

The Nationwide Chassis the Marcos won with is setting about 1/4 mile from my present location, up on jack stands, awaiting a rebuild, then being shipped to AU.

Cheers

So is that car exclusively a road course chassis, or does it see left turn duty as well?

Noticed that Kyle Busch fired Leffler from his truck ride. He said that they're gonna try out some drivers in actual races in the 18 truck rather than wait until the end of the season.

Put the big cars on a squiggly track and you get another great race.

I sure am glad that little prick Villeneuve didn't win. It was especially tasty to see the punk whining at Allgaier after the race. After Villeneuve's dick move at Watkins Glen, and then his pushing his way to the lead today, it was beautifully ironic to see Allgaier knock Villeneuve aside on the last lap at Montreal. After how he's driven this season, for Villeneuve to complain about it just affirms what a tiny little douche he is.

Only caught the last two laps, but happy to see a personal friend in the top ten (after two dnf's, neither of which his fault, in his first two nationwide races.) Enjoyed hearing the winner get boo'ed after punting the local.

If it wasn't for shitty luck that girl wouldn't have any luck at all. I sure hope they catch the asshole that threw that shoe.

She said right after qualifying that she jumped the car hard and broke something, they should have fixed it and gone to the back for the start. Probably would have finished better.

That probably is more plausible than a shoe diong damage, but still, running over anything at 100 plus can't be good for the undercarriage. I doubt she would have won if it held together, but she would have been somewhere near the front at the end.

And furthermore, as fond as nascar is of debris cautions, It seemed like they had more than enough time to call one before the pack got there.(to the shoe)

Does Montoya have any fans here?

I'm wondering if there has been a race this season where he hasn't been involved in a wreck. (I can't recall one....)

Yeah, a shoe didn't break the track bar and snap an axle. Damn shame, because I was rooting for her...good run and showing great skill. Did you catch her saying 'fuck' on the air?

I doubt they knew it was broken. She told them it bottomed out hard in qualy and I assume they checked it out. Since they don't have x-ray gear to scan the metal, they probably couldn't tell if it had a small fracture. Who knows whether or not the shoe triggerred it? She wasn't taking the curbs hard and the problems started almost immediately after she ran over the thing.

Any amount of work on the car sends them to the back if I understand right. The rear end was shifting around before the shoe, the shoe was the trigger for the announcers to start looking at her car.


Mark Martin is a man that is lucky to be alive, he oughta quit and enjoy his grandkids.
