    Pretty wild to associate racing with selling cars again, isn't it? :lol3

    One of those Pontiacs was a coupe rwd and V-8, I'd imagine Chevy would do one of those too? Makes sense why the new Caprice is police only if they have plans for a cool V8 rwd car.

    That race was pretty good until Stewart wrecked the entire field. :norton

    It was refreshing to see him own up to causing the mess instead of his usual whining and finger pointing.

    He's the only real racer left.

    No, there were about 7 racers left and he wasn't one of them. :wink:

    Huh, just heard about Junior's concussion problems? I'd like to see him sit out the rest of the season, having suffered a concussion out on the trail and knowing how horrible it is, the more time you give yourself the better, is how I feel about it.

    Amazing fact...that was the first Cup race without an Earnhardt since September 1979. :eek1

    I really wouldn't be surprised to see Junior retire from driving in the near future.

    You guys see where Jr said the impact at Kansas during the tire test was recorded at 40 g's? I guess they had instruments on board for testing? Maybe that will be the way to get a handle on when to test drivers for concussions? Record over 12 g's and you go to the doctor?

    Good grief, Danica has lost her mind. :loco

    Sounds like GoDaddy is gonna drop her after next season. I highly doubt she has what it takes to even run a full Cup season and I bet she washes out by May.

    Totalling another perfectly good race car while acting like a spoiled child.

    The team and GoDaddy deserve better than that. There is no way that little girl has what it takes to compete in Cup. The talent is not there and with GoDaddy's money likely to be gone for 2014, not much chance she will be around past 2013.

    I didn't see the race, but just watched a you tube clip of the incident. She fucked up, but she didn't do anything that the good ole' boys haven't been doing to each other for the last 40 or so years.

    And she seemed pretty good in the NW race, other than once they got up to speed she would start going backwards. Only saw parts of that one, but what I did see she was always running top ten. She seems to have the NW cars somewhat figured out, Cup, not so much.

    She's had plenty of opportunity to prove herself,and hasn't in my book.I took some flack for questioning her ability in the past on here,but shes a spoiled ,pampered little princess who pouts and throws a fit whenever things don't go her way.If everyone was like her,I'd never watch another race.Kyle Petty hit the nail on the head last night on Windtunnel.:deal

    Denny Hamlin story...I used to wrench for FedEx Freight and Denny came by with the car for some big shot promo stuff, it was the summer before he was in Cup. I was talking to him, just hanging out eating some bbq and mentioned that I had never heard of him before, he said that's okay, but I will hear of him in the future...sure enough, that dude can wheel a car, damn the luck.
