Short track = short OP. Brevity.

Feels like ages since I watched a NCWTS race, looking forward to this weekend. Will be cooking short ribs.

Denny Hamlin looks to clock the miles by running double-duty. Kevin Harvick wants a piece too.

Ribs, people.

Loving David Ragan's scheme for this weekend:

JJ on pole for Sunday, Hamlin 5th and Bowyer 8th. Keselowski, meanwhile, could only manage 33rd which means a bad pit stall selection and a high likelihood of going down a lap early on.

Not looking good for Beavis. In Martinsville's history, only one driver has managed to win starting from 25th or worse.
It happened to be Kurt.

Plus, simply "staying out when everyone pits to gain track position" is less likely to work this time.

Only spotted this a few minutes ago, but for those of us in the UK, Premier Sports are having a Freeview weekend this weekend (as Sky/ESPN do sometimes), and the NSCS race is live on that channel (Sky 433) at 5.30pm tomorrow.

*salutes you*

Hmm looks like PK lost a few spots on the start.

Cale Gale is in the 33, is that the ex-KHI trucks? Carries the same sponsorship and everything.

Did that mis-shift blow the motor?

A little late, but better than never :D
Cheers for the heads up again GM :up:

Whats happened to Denny, starting 4th and was 19th at the caution just then :well:

Fantastic :D
I have a SkyHD box with no subscription, just for freeview HD stations, but its working for me, and i can watch the NHL game tonight too.
Can switch the NASCAR to my monitor, stick the racebuddy feed and this forum on the 2nd monitor :D
Would put it on the tv directly above, but its not a comfortable viewing angle from the computer.

Delana is listed as the owner of the 33, so I'd say yep.
Hamlin had to start from the rear as he missed the drivers meeting.

Bodine not catching breaks as usual.

So KHI is still operating I guess? Maybe this is their last season? I forget how that all went down.

Everyone's got what they got from here on out. Drivers getting a little aggressive. I'm thinking G/W/C.

Needs to be smacked for that paint scheme.

And somehow Buescher sneaks his way back to great position. How does he do it?

Any race with a DH win is a good one ;)

Yeah, theres certainly plenty of action in them, and they're a nice length too. Got a little fed up of the cautions, seemed like they'd go 8 laps clean, start to spread, and then something would happen.

Piquet looks a little overly aggressive, but to be fair as aggressive as it was i dont think i saw anything where he was out of order for doing it, he drove it hard, didnt hit someone as a consequence like he was going in hot-headed or overly ambitious, although that 3-wide move could have gone quite differently if the other 2 hadnt seen what was happening. Im sure BK did something similar and it took them all out, either this year or another (ive watched a ton of 2010 & 2011 races so they're all mushed in to 1 season to me!) im thinking BK, JJ & Gordon? 2 Hendricks im sure, and i think Hamlin won as a result. Reminded me of that as it was happening.

I'm a little annoyed that now that the Chase has started, NASCAR isn't waving the green flag at the usual time.

Earlier this season, "1 pm ET" meant the green flag waved around 1:15 or 1:19 or something.

Now it means 1:45.

:mad:

I don't know why they get so precise with the green flag time when they never hit it anyway. "1:43" makes it sound as if it is called to the minute; "1:45" would at least imply an accuracy of within five minutes.

What a cluster on pit road. Juan was picking them off like crazy, up to 16th from 25th. Came out 19th.
