    Did you guy happen to notice Kyle Larsen?
    On Saturday he finished top 5 in Nationwide at Fontana, then he ran up to Stockton and won the World of Outlaws Main.

    Kyle flew up there with Tony. Tony didn't do as well. Surprised that Kyle didn't have to walk back to Fontana.

    It aint gonna be long before Kyle Larson is winning races. I can't believe how quick he's adjusted to the nationwide cars.

    Yikes. Joey's pissed, sick of getting walked on, did nothing wrong but push it too hard turn 4 drifted up, hit Denny. Heal well dude, no foul. Tony's pissed cuz SHR is sucking for the start of 13 and he got blocked.... We all would do the same thing, last lap, for the win.... Kyle is gigglin', just waiting it out..
    Only racing at Fontana, EVER!!

    Tony should have hired Kyle instead of Danica.

    Kyle is an example of how it is supposed to work. Here is a young driver who has earned his ride on talent and will win races in his first year in Nationwide.

    Danica is the perfect example of how it doesn't work. The only thing that he has in common with the Slow Daddy driver is neither one of them has boobs:lol3

    Whatever, but I think Joey is going to feel like a soccer ball at Martinville and it's going to be fun to watch! :lol3

    Don't know if this has been posted yet, truck test at Eldora. Nice wet, heavy track, but wait until the race in July, it's going to be a dust bowl.

    From Lee Spencer's article, "Feud watch is on for Martinsville."
    http://msn.foxsports.com/nascar/sto...ogano-tony-stewart-driver-feuds-040213#!dfkEQ

    Danica Patrick vs. Jeff Burton — Patrick forgave Burton for dumping her at Phoenix last year. If she can catch him at Martinsville, it could get interesting. Perhaps a better opponent for Patrick might be Landon Cassill, since he’ll likely be riding in the back with her on Sunday.

    ---------------------------
    It isn't a dead horse. It is alive and active as shown in the article above.

    She is consistently riding with the Start and Park group, not the front runners. :deal

    I predict Kyle Larson spanks 'em at the Eldora Truck race.

    Because Burton was pretty smart and signed with RCR early in 2011 for far less money before the shit hit the fan at RCR.

    Childress did not play his cards very well in 2011, Burton did. RCR's worth as a team has really fallen and if Childress's grandsons aren't players in cup it could get far worse with Harvick leaving.

    Interesting side note on how things are at RCR, Earnhardt Ganassi Racing is not using Earnhardt Childress Racing (ECR) engines this year. That joint venture is only 5 years old.

    You are right. The new hype is that she is the first woman to race at Martinsville at the Cup level.

    Nascar should be able to get her back in front of the cameras with that. :clap And with some carefully placed caution flags for hot dog wrappers on the track, I would bet they can keep her from going down more than 10 -12 laps if she can stay out of the fence.

    Should be another epic example of her talent. Even her crew chief has said Martinsville is not a track the team thinks she will do well on. Ya think:poser

    I wonder how long his contract is for? I have never understood why RCR has kept that guy at all, I would have cut him loose at least 10 years ago.

    Will a Dillon take Harvick's ride? Or how about Kurt Busch?

    Jeff Burton hasn't been with RCR for 10 years. He left Roush in 2004 and was replaced by Carl Edwards around the middle of that year.

    RCR has a lot invested in the the Dillon kids. That could backfire in a big way if they don't perform as they hope. Havick's gone after this year and that leaves Paul Menard, who isn't bad, but he isn't great either.
