Mom just called. Her boyfriend went to the race yesterday and he gave her a Biffle T-shirt and a Biffle watch. My 71-year-old mother is wearing a Biffle watch. I guess this means if she ever runs into another Mark Martin fan, she will be armed this time! Have fun everybody....next year is going to be another blast!

You, too, Irish. Have a wonderful holiday. I am very anxious for next year. I have all of these beautiful pictures of Boris now, courtesy of all of you who told me where to get them and/or sent them to me. I cannot wait for our guy to give this NASCAR gig a swift kick in the.....I hope he is reading this...

Oh, I almost forgot. Smokin 20 is trying to explain to me why Ryan Newman and his crew chief got into trouble during the race yesterday. Was he paying Juan Pablo back for a bump that sent him spinning the first time? I saw Mr. Newman "cutting the grass" as they sometimes say, but then I saw the second disaster. Any opinions on why Ryan is getting smacked on the hand?

Newman has had a bad year. I think frustration got the best of him yesterday. Luckily there were no injuries to Montoya. Nasty looking crash and scary fire.

Hi, Irish, am I glad I come to the Topix forums when I have a question. A nice person who calls themselves refuse to lose just told me the same thing about Ryan. I basically like him. Last year at this time when I didn't know anything, I noticed him because he fishtailed Jeff Gordon and it looked so deliberate. He also got away with it. I forgave him; I actually thought it was funny, Gordo didn't get hurt. But, after I started putting 2 and 2 together a little bit more often, I noticed Mr. Newman getting away with quite a bit. Lately though, he has been scolded and I bet fined more than I hear about. I want him to have a better year next year. Boris has to have somebody to compete with, right? The new program, NASCAR Drivers Nonstop is very interesting and helps one to get to know the drivers a little bit better. I sure hope they have Boris on an episode. Hey, I wonder if his sister knows anything about it? Is her name Lisa? I know someone told me...I think I spelled it wrong, I know I did. Sorry, Leesa? Oh well, I love your brother and enjoy it when you are on board.

Irish,

HELP!!! Have I finally lost it? I just got on a NASCAR news thing with what is up and coming, and they mentioned Casey Mears teaming up with Jeff and Jimmie's team, the new Toyota team, but no mention of Boris. He is going to be NASCAR racing next year, right? I mean, isn't this why we are celebrating? We will be seeing a lot more of him? Oh, please tell me it is true! We have talked about this since last summer. He hasn't changed his mind?

Thanks, pal. Boris's sister is here a lot and maybe she can tell us more. Once, even the man himself came by. Do the higher-ups in NASCAR change their minds a lot to you? Have a good one.

Lots of times the web sites will concentrate on the "full timers." Boris will be running next year in the 60. First race will be the Bud shoot out. He qualified for that race by winning the pole for the Pepsi 400 at Daytona last year. Have not heard what races he will be doing. I expect him to run about 12 of them.

I knew I could count on you to know the answer! I am severely looking forward to seeing Boris! He is going to kick some...and be cool about it, besides. I have never seen him flip out after he has raced because somebody got under him or spun him out. On this new NASCAR Nonstop Drivers program, Casey Mears confronts, calmly, Ryan Newman and Mr. Newman acted like a giant with a big grin on his face. The more upset Casey got, the bigger Newman got! Boris does not seem to really get into the drama aspect of things. He just goes out to race..have a good week!
