I second that, I'll pitch in...

90% of the pre-race show will be about Junior's departure from DEI.

I don't mind JJ so much, I can't stand Gordon. But you gotta admit - they got it going on right now. Hendrick's cars are kicking ass. Couple a great car with a great driver and you've got a winning team.

I don't think you hit a tire going by you at 195 mph, but I'd pay real $$$ to see another driver plant Gordon in a wall each race . . .

See, I'm just the opposite, I can't stand Johnson winning but can stand Gordon (not Robby Wink ) winning. If any of the Hendrick cars win, I hope it's Mears or Kyle Busch.

Me too - especially if it's Robby Gordon, Kevin Harvick, or either of the Busch brothers. Better yet, all five of them take each other out in the same wreck.  Silly

Hard to pick against the Hendrick drivers this week - but I'm sticking with Hamlin.

I never wish anyone to end up smacking the wall or otherwise be in an accident that could kill or maim them, even Jeff Gordon. Jimmie Johnson is definitely on a streak of a career and will probably continue to be a strong top 5 finisher.
Wouldn't it be a karma blast if Junior was to win  biggrin  I bet there will be a lot of fans cheering for him there and the rest of the season to win just to stick it to DEI and his step mom from hell.
One issue that to me NASCAR has to figure out how to deal with better very soon is over the late yellow flags/race stops due to debris, minor accidents and oil leaks/blown engines. These tend to tighten up the field too much upon the restart and often set off another big accident as cars bang into each other trying to bump up their position - literally.

Texas is a city? Big grin

I think he used the name which is in the track's official name... Fontana is officially California Speedway, and the track in Ft Worth is Texas Motor Speedway

If you're 5 or more laps down with 50 to go, you must get off the track. Less rolling wrecks to shed debris, blow up, cut tires, etc. Also, extend the ten lap rule (where lapped cars must start behind lead-lap cars in one line) to that same 50-lap timeframe.

I'm watching the Busch race right now and Regan Smith is in first. Mark Martin is in the 5 car (at least it's not Busch this race).

I noticed the Smoke/Newman mini-feud carried over to the Busch race tonight. They did some beating & banging late at Richmond & again tonight. Newman ended up with a cut tire & spun after contact from Tony.

The Haas cars (Sauter & Jeff Green) had a pretty nice run at Phoenix (9th & 6th respectively I think) & were towards the front for a while at Talladega.

Watching practice today, 23 cars ended up with Darlington Stripes at the end of the day.

I didn't get to see the Busch Race - duty called. And I'll likely miss the end of tomorrow's race as duty will call again, but I'll have it on tape.



Go Stewart! Naturally.  laughing

Due to rain, the race has been postponed to Sunday, 1 pm. For those that planned to tape it tonight, they will just get COPS reruns (although ANC Flyer probably likes that show).
Of course with the rain out, like at Richmond, it will 'wash' the track of the old rubber, oil and so on and may affect some drivers and cars.

COPS is interesting. But it's boring. It's always the same crap. Stupid criminal(s) doing stupid crap.

I'll have to set the VCR while I'm sleeping tomorrow . . . . dangit.

Interesting note, tomorrow is Mother's Day in the US. How many fans just had Mother's Day plans dashed. This is the first year in a few NASCAR has scheduled a race on Mother's Day weekend. I think it was a bad call. I don't think we'll see this again next year.

NASCAR has had a race on Mother's Day weekend (albeit scheduled for Saturday night) since 2005 when they expanded to 36 races.

They won't ever race on Easter, but have that stupid week off after the second race in California in February. I have never understood why they would give them a week off after two races... just stupid.

Take that week off, and put it on Mother's Day weekend. That gives the teams a week off before the two-week show in Charlotte.
