What a ending to the race where a lot of cars barely made it on fuel.

Yeah, I thought it was pretty exciting! I wish Kasey could have stayed up there to win though, but I'm happy for Carl.=)

Last night when I watched Victory Lane, I wondered what was up with Carl and Bob Osbourne? I was sure from the way Bob was acting, that he was going to get caught cheating... but from the post race show repeat I heard this morning, it was that they were both so mad at each other for blaming the other for deciding to stay out when it rained.. so,, what I am getting at on the TS forum is that maybe we need to listen to the other drivers yelling at their crews, before picking apart the 20 teams communication each week. They played Jr bickering with Eury Jr telling him "you did not do anything to fix it, it is as bad as ever..I WANT THIS CAR FIXED.".. now since this was between Jr and his COUSIN, the Sirius guys think it was cute because they are the only ones who can get away with it, being that they are family..I think it is hillarious the double standard for behavior in our sport.

I am SOOOO proud of NASCAR for not calling a phantom debris caution... how strange it was that there was no phantom debris on the track with Jimmie riding in third place......I guess it was because he would have run out of gas and lost even more positions..LOL

I told my dh to "enjoy the Office Depot car" in Victory Lane... Tony may have took second, but I'm getting used to the idea of the Office Depot #14 Chevy there frequently!!

(Smoke wont be doing back-flips, however...)

He would break his fricking neck if he did! LOL

I thought it was interesting when they had the rain clouds come up and Carl's CC asked him what his opinion was on the rain chances. Since Carl is a pilot he can read the rain clouds better then most people. He must have been right, cause he won.
