With the Trucks set due to rain, I guess I'll go ahead and double dip. This is kinda fun.

The Trucks are at Texas for Friday night if the weather allows. Practice and qualifying was rained out, setting the field by points, and NASCAR made time for a impromptu 1 hour practice session Thursday night. Them Thorsport Boys looking good. No Cup guys.

Practice speeds here: http://www.jayski.co...texas-prac1.pdf
Lineup here: http://www.jayski.co...exas-lineup.pdf

Race starts late on the East Coast: 9:00 pm with possibility of showers.

As for Sprint Cup, there is a bit of uncertainty due to new pavement. 22 cars broke the track record and speeds as high as 211 mph going into turn 1 was reported.

Looking forward to the Truck series this weekend the most, as it'll be the only race I'll probably be able to watch.
(apartment hunting weekend)

Good to see no Cup regulars this week. Even though i know they're not eligible for points, their presence somewhat dilutes the Truck race for me.

As always, go Piquet!

Hopefully Reutimann gets a solid finish in the Cup #51. Top 5 would be killer.

Will Piquet lay away those 'first win' hexes down in Texas?

Who's watching Trucks tonight?

More bad stop for Buesher.

Hey there is never a train behind PK. He is always at the tail of a train and just chilling, backing off a few lengths when people get a little racy in front.

Now he's in second.

I guarantee you if he gets to the point, he'll check out. But that won't help much with cautions probably coming. Just gotta be there at the end.

They only added fuel! That's all I saw, even though they listed him on the graphic as taking two tyres.

I'm going to take a shower so I'm fresh and ready for the end of the race!

What'd I miss? I left at lap 107. Looks like PK is in 7th now?

This the last pit stop?

Nelson's restarts have been crapola tonight :(

Going to start the dvr now and get the kids to bed...be back after the race is over and watch...oh well...Hopefully Piquet will fix his restarts (not likely F1 guys can fix anything).

PK could have been a contender if he had his restarts under control. He tried to follow Sauter under Gaughan three wide and loss momentum on the last one. Ill-advised, but to be fair, he would have wrecked it last year.

I think he just didn't have the car. Too loose under another truck. But he did get Leffler for 5th (they didn't show it :()

Sauter just checked out. Good win for him I guess.

Yeh Top 5 finish, best of the Turner boys. He'll take it.
Great battle for 2nd there, and Sauter with some serious pace tonight.

So, 7 different winners in 7 races. Why is no-one blaming Pirelli? :rotfl:

wow, brad had a stinker then.

Nice to see Menard up there, Edwards too - might be his day tomorrow ? I saw the autosport article about him feeling a bit of pressure to get a win.
