I still check in now and then too. Honestly I don't like the new format where there is video trying open as soon as I come on the page.

As far as Kasey goes I think it's nice to see him running strong still. He had the best car Sunday but always seems to get screwed by the way the cautions fall. He was good at Chicago also so it gets you thinking about what might have been if he could just catch a friggin' break. I will say that Chicago was his fault (even by his own admission) for hitting the wall and causing them to go a lap down fixing it. He said the car was good all day long though. I still feel like the sky is the limit next season. With him and Kenny in that good equipment in a stable situation for once I think they may be a fore to be reckoned with right out of the gate.

Only time will tell though and I think NASCAR still has issues to fix because I for one don't want to see so many fuel mileage races and races where you can't pass and track position is everything. They need a tire that gives up more over the run so the driver comes into play more. Atlanta was a great race watching Gordon and Johnson slide all over going at it like that. That's what more of the races need to be like.

Good to hear from you. I know I don't like fuel mileage races either. It so determines who win the race.
