OK, Does anyone know what's going on? Why are they so far off? I really hope they were just focused on race trim or something. The only good news is that I play in a pool at work and drew 30th. I never thought I would get Kasey.

About Ragan? Kasey said he saw what was going on about a thousand feet in front of him so he couldn't understand why the 6 car got into him. Later,when they were coming to a green flag stop,Kasey said he wished he could find Ragan and spin him to cause a caution.Other than that,the handling was off some but the lack of power seemed to be the main issue.Before they were coming in for a pit stop,Kasey let loose with a string of 'F' words about the car saying he felt like he was doing 25 #$%^ing MPH down the straight. Later,he asked Kole if he had the slowest engine out there. Kole said "yes...oh wait,the 18 did but he blew up."

Kasey seems to get frustrated really easily. And Kenny's attitude is all like "relax dude, we'll work on it...it's like lap 10". Haha.

He was pissed with the engine, he thought he had the worst engine on the track. They struggled with a vibration a lot of the day, he said it felt like the car was going to explode it was shaking so much. They also struggled with the front tires as well.

They had finally got it feeling decent for him and his lap times were REALLY good, but then David Ragan happened and put them back to square one. A frustrating day that produced a decent result in the end. It looks like they struggled all weekend considering practice and qualifying speeds.

Brian Vickers seemed to have decent car, does anyone know if they had the same setup in their cars.

no i dont think they did, so far every race this season, they go into with two different set-ups.. so they can work on them and perfect them better, then whoever does better in practice, they switch to the faster cars set-up. But even if you have two same cars with the same set-ups, they are going to act differently. The deal is, kasey started in the back with the yo-yos because of the stupid damn qualifying they are still using, where they start qualifying during the day and end in the night, if you go out in the beginning, youre screwed, if you go out late your golden, its bs and not fair at all to anyone. Vickers, started inside top 20, so he could use his car and make it better, kasey started so far back that he had to use too much of his car and probably his mental strength to get to where he did, especially when it was so hard to pass at that track. david ragan shouldnt even be in nascar especially with roush.. i mean they fired jamie mac for his stupid ass, and what has he done??? good job jack roush! Anyways congrats to kasey and the guys,, i wish he did find ragan...

oh and i like the fact he gets fired up now!! i mean back in 06 and 07, if something happened to him or if someone pushed him around, he would steer clear of it, and never defend himself. Now hes starting to show some flair!! that flair can help him or hurt him depending on how he uses it. i hope itll only help him. But atleast it shows that he is finally starting to not take any bs anymore.

By the way im known for rambling sorry./

also he wants to win.. i mean his rookie year he had 13 top fives.. like 6 or more top two finishes.. in 06 he won 6 races i think something like 12 top fives, and 21 top tens.. and ever since then hes been driving junk.. that will make any one frustrated..

The article that featured Kasey on nascar.com today had a quote from Kasey where he talked about how they figured out what was wrong with the car at Vegas after they got back to shop and that"it won't happen again." Did anyone hear what the issue was?

All I know was that it was something that was causing a vibration and affecting the power. I really hope it's true because if he could have an issue like that and still finish top 15 this should be a great year.
