It's like she said to herself after that wreck; "OK I can do this, Lets go..."
She's down and out already. Looking good for a while and then someone punted her to the garage. ..She was a little hot and used the F word. Better luck tomorrow.
Yep, 10 laps to go and they started wrecking each other on every restart. And a last lap wreck, just like the truck race. Expect more of the same on Sunday.
Dale Jarrett said it best, "That car was savable, she should have turned left, locked it down and spun it, might have to limp back to the pits with four flat tires, but there was time to save it"
Another lesson learned.
Yeah, I never saw him wreck a car. He must be some kind of perfect expert behind the wheel. In fact IIRC, I think that UPS car was showing its' underside after banging off the transition...... Probably could have saved them all when he watched it on tape.
They're really fast, heavy, and they go left
Nice job Kurt Busch, taking out everyone anywhere near the lead so that the guy who was running 11th in turn 4 ultimately wins the race. What a POS, but at least he's consistent.
Besides that, how do you feel?
He vexes me
As we watched the end of the race, I was telling my buddy that these pack races are a complete crapshoot. With the predictable carnage at the end, skill seems like a secondary concern.
It's a stark contrast to the great, great finish at Atlanta last fall, when Gordon and Johnson dueled lap after lap and skill really did make a difference.

They are a crapshoot to a degree, but moreso in the middle of the pack. The leaders are usually pretty good at holding their lines. Yesterday, the leader squeezed the guys coming up on the outside into the wall. When the closing speed is probably 10 mph greater than the lead cars, that will always end in disaster.
I had the race on while I was doing other things. How anyone can find that crap compelling is beyond me. It certainly isn't racing (as opposed to the excellent Atlanta finish you posted). One of the <s>circus barkers</s> announcers uttered "Unbelievable!" after the third-straight late lap pile-up. Sure, it was unbelievable if by unbelievable you mean so predictable as to be a virtual certainty.
Y'all ready to watch the Danica 500?
The big ass hair dryers are out though..
coochidy coochidy coochidy
at least you can still watch this thread,sorry about yer luck
I guess the hair dryers are surplus helicopter engines...
Robby Gordon is being interviewed right now! Starting 17th.
I bet this race is going to get delayed all day...
That's how I took it, never been a Jarrett fan, but he had a good point...sometimes you can wreck a car and go a lap or two down rather than wadding it up and going 48 laps down.
Cancelled until tomorrow. Losta rain down there.
Looks like I have to get off my a$$ and do something now..:huh
