Honestly, I hate to say it but I think Kasey really did a bad job giving feedback to Kenny in this race. In the beginning he was talking about how the car just wasn't in the track and they went down on all air pressure and removed some packer. I was annoyed right away because I NEVER hear anyone else having to take out or put in packer and I have no idea why they can't get this issues figured out in practice like everyone else.

That didn't help much anyway and Kasey seemed to give up and didn't say much else other than talking about how the car was bouncing all over the place. After he said basically nothing on one run he came on right before the pit stop and almost sarcastically asked Kenny if they were going to do anything to the car because if not they were going to finish right were they were running which was around 20th at the time.

They ended up copying Vickers' air pressures all the way around and that really seemed to help because for a while his lap times were really good. I didn't see what happened to him on the last run. For I minute I was actually excited and had the thought of a win creep in only because he was the first car off pit road and had better tires than the guys in front of him. One minute he was racing Harvick for 4th and the next he was clinging to a top 10 and all I can come up with is that he got loose and lost his momentum.

I won't say it was a boring race because I usually enjoy the multi groove racing at tracks like California and Michigan but I will say it was annoying at times. It seemed like Kasey spent a lot of time racing with cars he was faster than but would get racing side by side and loose momentum and the guy behind him that he just passed would pass him back. At least they got a good finish out of a bad day but on to Martinsville which I would assume Kasey would say is his second worst track next to Phoenix.

well also! its probably been the first time kasey has been second to one of his teammates in years, last year we cant count because all th funding went to allmendinger, and kasey was gettin crap cars, so that doesnt count, i wonder if he was pissed vickers was running in the top five all day and he was running 20th to 25th all day..eventually i think that could piss anyone off if your not used to it, and kaseys career, he really hasnt had any teammates that could do anything besides ride around and show off sponsors. i mean i didnt mean to say the entire race was boring, i just was sayin the first 3/4 was, the last 1/4 was exciting to watch, very exciting. I still think its good to see vickers running good too, gives kenny francis more to work with, more options, if they went there again this year, he probably would do a lot better.

I almost thought he had a winning chance too when i saw him the first one out, if he didnt lose momentum, he wouldve easily had a chance on a top five!! i think

Kasey annoys me sometimes with his whining. When he said "so we're just going to run here all day" I was like, really? Like you said, it seemed like he gave up and his feedback was terrible. Kenny can't do anything unless you SPEAK.

I know drivers want their cars to be virtually perfect, but sometimes I wanna scream at him "you're fast and you're passing cars...can you just shut up & drive the damn thing for a while!!"

They got a top 10 out of all that, which was great, but sadly I wasn't impressed with KK's attitude throughout a lot of the race. Can you not have a meltdown for 5 seconds and explain what's going on so they can fix it, please!

Ah well, it's over now. Onto Martinsville!
