I also prefer the tracks where you race hard, however, Pocono IMO has always been one of those races where it has just been follow the leader, and that is not very good racing.

Although I like plate tracks, mostly because of the "big one", it isn't fun knowing your driver will only do well if he has someone pushing him around the track.
I prefer the tracks where you race and race hard and you don't have to rely on someone else pushing you to get you to the finsih.
I agree.

You want to talk about looking puked out, Shrub when they interviewed him in the pits after that bonehead moved that crunched the M&M mobile. Couldn't be he over did it this weekend and lost his concentration?
I'm with you. KB looked exausted. Even though he is only 23 it takes a toll on you when your flying 4500 miles in just over 24 hours. It takes a while for your body to return to normal. His wreck during practice was a mental error and I think (JMO) his wreck during the race was pure exaustion.. mentally and physically.

Or it could be the beginning of 7 years bad luck for breaking his mirror.

I'm sure Gibbs is going to sit down and have a heart to heart with KB about trying to do too much. Time to set your priorities.

In an interview KB said he had always wanted to race all three in three different locations. Last year he said he was not allowed to do that because he was supposed to focus on Cup.
His old boss looks pretty smart today. Not only would he have finished better yesterday, he would not have torn up TWO Cup cars.

Even Superman had Kriptonite!

Morning Fig!!! I think KB is seeing that the luck can run out just when you least expect it.. and then to go and blame his spotter was wrong. JR was really hurting in the car I dont think he felt good before he even got into the car.

Jr is feeling the pressure. I would like him to win and get that darn monkey off his back. I am sure he gets tired of the same questions from 30 reporters week in and week out.

I think KB bit off a little more than he could chew. If there ever was a driver who could pull that off, it would have to be KB. I wonder how Mr. Gibbs feels about it this morning?

Attention seeking - yes
Successful - not so much

Yes that dang monkey keeps hanging around Jr. and I think a win would really build up the moral with him and his hole team

I will take a good Pocono race over a Daytona, Charlotte, Atlanta, Talladega, and so on. Pocono is good hard racing. It's a great place watching a race live at.
I respectfully disagree. I personally find Daytona , Dega etc a lot more exciting. However I have never watched a race live whereas I have at Daytona & Dega.

How did you enjoy the Michigan race?. Did you find there was a lot of hard racing going on?. That is why I like Nascar for the variety of tracks. Michigan is not that far from me - so that might be one I would consider going to.

Yes Junior is definately feeling the pressure even though he might not admit it - you can see it in his body language post race. He will win though & I mean a points race. He is already doing a lot better in comparison to last year. However he now needs to let go of the comfort level & take a few chances - & no I don't mean cheat in case anyone is wondering!?.
