I'm onboard with Keselowski and I like him more and more.

You sure about the first one? I think B-Lab was in front of everyone and blew up, isn't that what caused the stack up?


Checking--on Lap 119, this site cite (http://www.nascar.co...plbl/index.html) says "Bobby Labonte gets into the rear of Trevor Bayne on the restart"--but one can never be sure.

Try http://www.nascar.co...plbl/index.html and scroll down to lap 119.

Well, it is less of a strain to go with a winner. One must be practical at some point.

I stand corected. Labonte is out on track so that's further confirmation. :)

Maybe that is a good sign--she has stayed out of trouble. She has been doing okay--she was up to third at one point during pit stops.

I think she must have. She's not available as an onboard in RaceBuddy either.
Either that or NASCAR has much less patience for underperforming stars and the talent pool is MUCH deeper in NASCAR so she's near the bottom instead of being in the middle in Indycar.

Kes is being asked to save fuel.

Also Penske got on the comm and said "Nice job out there Brad, keep digging." and Brad said 10-4 boss

What the heck is wrong with that #11 now?

Dennys gone from title contender and fastest car on the track, to being passed by Danica, over the course of 1 race distance (last half @ Mville, 1st half here) :(
Had a nice migraine brewing the whole race and really cant be bothered now :(

Absolutely amazing to cut the engine like that on a track like TMS and still run competitive laptimes.

Whats happened to Ambrose, he's come to play with Denny?

Without some form of catastrophic failure, its rather embarrassing that they're both getting beat by PSP :(

Gordon had a tire go down before the last caution and had to pit. I think he got the wave around this last time.

On the previous pit stop, they talked to Danica and asked her to deep pit. She said yes and the pit stop came around and she didn't do it.

So there was some residual blame due to past history there for me. But I agree, this second time it wasn't her fault. Maybe she could have done a better job pulling in cos she was cocked pretty good in her pit stall but it hurt her to be badly positioned like that, too.

Did anyone catch what was on the sticky note Knaus hastily removed when he saw the camera behind him?

I am constantly amazed by the in-race interviews they get and I would absolutely love to see Adrian Newey run around the Red Bull garage collecting scraps of paper to incinerate before the camera finds them.

Could. Kyle. Talk. <pause> Any slower? Anyway, Kenseth is next in line to complain, hope he's funnier.

Also, I never knew about that rule or those lines - Thanks guys! Knowledable whiners are always fun.

Edit: Holy hell that 48 looks loose off the corners.
