Do you think if NASCAR will let them that the teams will have to use that valance on the front angle it down for more front down force? Goodyear is going to change tires as long as they make them, Job security!

They need to let the cars do what HMS had done to get downforce at Sonoma wasn't it? Isn't that where Cheater Chad and the Poptart got in trouble for messing with the COT? I know it was one of the road course races. They had figured out how to get more downforce on the front.

Yup! But they actualy did something to the Hood of the car, I would think we got this air dam out in front of these cars you should be able to use it, Change the angle to push the front up or down?

Nah, I think.....can't remember if it was DW or Richard Petty that put buckshot in the roll bars of the car and got caught. That's the worst cheat ever, followed closely by Cheater Chad rigging a bar to move the back window in Jimmie's car after inspection.

How, what an interesting conversation. I am just too green to jump into this one. I do, however, have a question I would like to share with you guys and get your opinions, ok? Greg won the race; we all saw it and know how and why and even Uncle Jack said this Nascar rule is one hardly ever used. Question: If that had been Mikey who had won the race under those circumstances or Reuti, what do you guys think the fans'reactions would have been? In this situation, I am glad our team did not win. Well, ok, sort of.

Renee, Mikey did pretty darn well up until the final wreck where they all went hurling into each other.

I thought Denny was funny the night before messing with Paul Menard. I saw him actually use the front of his car and lift Paul's tail up...kind of like what Jeff Burton did not too long ago and safely moved somebody out of the way. Those two really went at it all night. Then, Kyle drove with them almost 3-wide and he just kind of went low and watched Denny hassling Paul and then Paul got behind Denny! Kyle probably was entertained. Ha, he beat Matt, Matt looked like he was going to accidentally pull the steering wheel out....I loved that race. I know Carl Edwards didn't, though.

I understand Cheatin' Chad has been good at this sort of thing for quite some time. He has been caught, seven times, maybe?

If that had been Michael or Reut, all HELL would have broken loose. It sort of did, but it would have been even more had it been a Toyota team.

Yeah, Cheater Chad earned his nickname. Not sure exactly how many times he's commited "sins" against NASCAR but it's been alot.

I think Kyle Busch did the right thing by leaving Hendrick. I just wish he could take the crew chief with him. I loved it when during the Busch race, he was on Matt's behind and was reading the Free Fries on Monday sign on Matt's rear end. If Matt wins, you get free curly fries, I think it is. So, the little one is kidding with Gustufson (?), the crew chief if he should pass Matt or just let him win for the free fries. The crew chief promises the little beaver he will buy him all the fries he wants, just pass him!!

Do you think Mr. Eury, Dale's cousin, is the best dude for Dale? Just because he is his cousin, best friend, maybe, I am just becoming skeptical. We need Juniorsredneckwoman to answer this one, I guess.

Nite night!! You are two hours behind me, so I leave you, Renee, our fearless leader to make these people mind!!! Don't behave yourself!! L8r...

Well, I can tell you that ALOT of people aren't happy with Tony Eury Jr going to HMS with Junior. That combo just really hasn't worked in the past. They fight too much. It's not healthy. They need to split up and let Gustafson(Shrub's crew chief) work with Junior and see how that goes.

I agree and I think that would be an interesting combo Gus with Junior. I wish the little Busch boy could keep Gustafson. I have no idea why.

I wonder what Kyle will do for an encore when it is official that he is not a part of Say No To Hendrick Motorsports anymore? Wave a freak flag, perhaps? Throw a few cans at his former "teammate?" cough cough. I am being a bit sarcastic because I think he will say something or do something smart-assie before the season is over. It's ok, keeps us entertained.

Renee, last year when Hendrick decided to let Brian Vickers go, he was still driving the #25, but I understand at the same time he was not allowed in the drivers' meetings. Is this true? Why?

Say what you want about Chad, but he is one of best in the bussiness. I will tell you one thing he wouldn't be out of a job very long. He is smart an [inovative] and I don't have a clue if the spelling is right on that. You have to push the the envelope or you not trying. Ask king Richard he has some damm good stories.

It's hard to say that. If those sh#t Dei motors wouldn't have craped out he would be in the chase. He got damm close with that crap. Finishing that close to the chase how bad is that? I could name quite a few drivers that would have loved to finish where he did right before the chase started. Hmmmmmm do want some names. Later Darlin just calling them as I see em.
