Maybe they can get her a relief driver if she gets tired?
Eh, many high profile teams have done that since the top 35 rule was instituted.

Yeah, I know. I'd like to see rookies have to race their way in, rather than hang out in the back of the 150's.

From what Jeff Gordon said the two car train will only work for a short amount of time with the new front end work they did. Like a lap or barely more. He was really happy with the car and how little downforce it has with the latest changes.

You guys see that Gibbs had another fire in the shop? Almost exactly a year from the last fire. Some people got treated for smoke inhalation, no major injuries. They said a lazer cutter caught on fire.

Hey, Larry, we agree! I know the guy who won the last beach race and he's also the only one to win on a bike on the beach too, anybody know who?

Paul Goldsmith beat Curtis Turner; Curtis did win the no umbrella race though.

The only driver to have punched Luyendyk, fixed his own car during a 500, won the Indy 500, Daytona 500, the 24 at Daytona and the 24 at Le Mans is out of the hospital!!
