Hey man, Sorry for not getting back to you on the Pepsi 400 thread. I had a Hell of a weekend and the seats were awesome. It sucked that Tony wrecked early after his teammate didn't know how to drive. Oh well, Thats racin and ya cant win them all. I was glad to see Jamie McMurray get his first win in 5 years. Most of the race was extremely exciting and the last 5 laps were INSANE! I'm just glad Jimmie's Johnson or Jeff Gordon didn't win. I'm tired of those 2.

When I get a chance, I will post some of the pics I took of the race. I haven't reviewed them yet but I will let ya know how they turn out.

This weekends race should be alright but nothing spectacular. We have a few snoozefests coming up with Pocono and Indianapolis. Flat tracks are just too boring and the field gets too strung out, Lack of close racing, ect. As much as I love Indianapolis for Indy cars, I hate it for stock cars.

Gotta go with Kuna on this . . . Stewart had his head in Rectal Defilade last weekend . . . and it cost he and Hamlin a lot.

So when someone gets loose and/or tight its alright to run them over?  crazy 

He never lifted, even after he hit Denny....I know I will never change any ones thoughts on this, its either you agree or disagree. Tony had no right to call his team mate out like that, and it was uncalled for!

Nope, Not an excuse to ran all over them. LOL. I guess its kinda like the Tony Stewart-Kurt Busch incident in the Daytona 500 when Tony got loose and Kurt Busch had nowhere to go.

After he got into Denny, Denny went to the inside of the track and Tony probably figured if he never lifted he would of cleared Denny. Unfortunately it didnt happen that way. You should of heard Tony's comments on his in-car radio, I've never seen him so pissed off. I agree that he shouldnt of called out his teammate like that but emotions are high after driving 190+ MPH.

On another note, you should of heard Kevin Harvick's comments on the in-car radio after Montoya got out of shape and pushed him into the wall.

Only a couple of items I'd throw in here as the race start looms...

Riggs misses another race. Thinking the 10 car will be up for a new driver next year or Evernham will need to devote a bit more attention to his 3rd team. Vickers and Allmendinger each missed the race as well, no Red Bull again.

Kyle Busch is driving solo from the comments he's making since the decision at HMS to hire Dale, Jr.

Sounds more and more that Tony Raines will be out of the 96 car at year's end (Nemechek, Ward Burton would fit well here if their teams fold due to sponsorship issues).

Happy that Ward is racing today, another quality qualifying run to get the underfunded 4 team in the race

Ironic that Stewart won this race because in 2004, he was involved in one of the most controversial incidents in a NASCAR race when he bumped then-race leader Kasey Kahne off the track and that resulted in a major fight in the pits when the then-Crew Chief for the #9 car, Tommy Baldwin, tried to beat up on the #20 pit crew.  Yeah sure

of course it is. NASCAR looks out for NASCAR and no one else. Would you rather have them go back to the old point system?

I have mixed feelings on the new point system. On the one hand, the last ten races are now more important than ever but at the same time, the old point system was plenty capable of producing the same drama. (Alan Kulwicki's 278 point comeback in '92)

More stuff to think about:

-FOXSports.com shows a rumor that Sterling Marlin may be replaced by Regan Smith in the 14 car.

-Today was TNT's last race of the season. ESPN/ABC start next week. And if their Cup coverage is anything like the current Busch coverage (which I imagine it will be), we're in for a crappy 17 weeks of TV coverage. I like Jerry Punch & AB, but ESPN's trying to be too flashy with the broadcasts, IMO.

-It appears NASCAR will tweak, but not do away with the top 35 rule. They may let the "go or go home cars" run at the same point in qualifying so the playing field's even. I guess Brian France doesn't realize that we actually have fields of 49 or 50 fully-funded cars showing up each week. This continues to show the current idiocy of the people at the controls of NASCAR. The field fillers have been gone for a couple years now, Brian...this rule can go away anytime.

-My family & I were driving from Daytona to MCO on Tuesday & passed the SFB area shortly after the crash that killed Lesa France Kennedy's husband. We saw the smoke rising, but didn't find out until later the details of what happened.

-Aaron Fike has been replaced by '94 Busch champ David Green in the #1 Truck for the rest of the season due to Fike's drug-related suspension. Green got a top 5 last night in his first run with the team.

1.5 mile ovals are ok but their are too many of them. It seems like every new track is a 1.5 mile cookie cutter oval. I wish they had an equal amount of different types of ovals/tri-ovals. I think they should also put 1 more road course event on the schedule. I would love to see them run on the road course at Heartland Park Topeka in Kansas.

I'm not sure if he will get it this year due to him leaving Hendrick and getting 2nd class equipment. I think he will win many races and championships in the future. I have been critical of him in the past for driving like a bonehead but he makes racing fun and will drive the wheels off a car.

One of the thoughts was that you'd see a swap out between Dale Jr. and Kyle Busch to speed up the transition as it appears, from one source quoted on jayski.com, that Kyle will be signing on with DEI instead of RCR (made more sense than pairing Harvick and Ky Busch as teammates?). Happens from time to time, and with each either in the Chase or close to it (Dale sits 13th), it may make sense as the teams would be represented in the Chase in the end.

Saw the Regan Smith replacing Sterling Marlin rumor on jayski.com as well (thru Fox and other sites). Schrader back to the 49 and Aric Almirola going to Ginn next year too...

Ward was in the wrong place at the wrong time, but was also 6 laps down at the time. Sigh.

Kudos to Stewart for winning and for the safety equipment installed that kept Jimmie Johnson from hurting more than he did. Nasty tire blowout there!

Put Jerry Punch back on pit road and Allen Bestwick in the booth would be an improvement. Lose the entire studio show (Suzy Kolber knows nothing, Brad Daugherty was an NBA player, and Tim Brewer just doesn't belong on TV), and simplify the graphics a bit... they take up too much of the screen.

Quoting DeltaRules (Reply 29):
-It appears NASCAR will tweak, but not do away with the top 35 rule. They may let the "go or go home cars" run at the same point in qualifying so the playing field's even. I guess Brian France doesn't realize that we actually have fields of 49 or 50 fully-funded cars showing up each week. This continues to show the current idiocy of the people at the controls of NASCAR. The field fillers have been gone for a couple years now, Brian...this rule can go away anytime.

They should cut it to the top 12...

Oh believe me, it's closer than you think. Kyle Busch is aggressive and can get it done. He's had some bad luck and done a few bonehead things, but raw talent wise, he's up with with the elite drivers. I mean if Kurt can win a championship, Kyle sure as heck can.

Not quite. You can't deny the talent Montoya has. Hell he finished in the top 5 in Atlanta this season. (His 5th Cup Oval Race in his life) He's due for another win this year bro.

Driving talent sure - but NASCAR driving talent will take a little more time. He needs to learn a little patience first.

Haw can a first time rookie be due? He may very well win again this year, but it won't be because he was due.

Some shake ups & a meltdown going on at Ginn Racing, which is having financial troubles (I thought this Ginn guy was going to pump a ton of money into the team).

-Sterling Marlin's out of the 14, replaced by Regan Smith. Looks like he (Sterling) will do the Mark Martin plan...he says he still loves racing, but the travel gets old.
-Aric Almirola, presumably because of the incident at Milwaukee with he & Hamlin last month, has said "up yours" to JGR & will now be the co-driver of the 01 car with Mark Martin.
-Joe Nemechek has been released from the 13 car, which looks as if it'll be closing down.

Also, Terry Labonte will jump in the 55 car at the Brickyard. I like Terry, but didn't he retire "for good" last year?

Bad luck should not be confused with BAD DRIVING. At least you got the bonehead part right.

Again his best shot at winning a Championship is at HMS... He is not going to be able to go somewhere else with the teams that can take him and go have the best chance of winning like he has at HMS.

Again... Have to agree with ANC... Kyle is talented to a degree but is careless and has a bad temper of over driving and getting himself and others around him in trouble.

Again... Kyle is FAR FAR from an Elite Driver... Petty, Earnhardt Sr., J.Gordan, and most recently T. Swewart & J. Johnson... He is far from how they drive and what they have accomplished.

As for following NASCAR... He is from LAS and will favor a driver from there... ANC don't crush all his dreams.  knockout 

In othere news! Terry Labonte to replace Michael Waltrip at Brickyard

They having to use Terry because he is assured of a spot in the field based on his status as a former champion?
