Seems some people have nothing better to do than to laugh at one's misfortunes.

Hmm...

Seems someone needs to get a sense of humor. It was a gamble that didn't work out. That's not misfortune, that's a bad choice. And yes, it was pretty amusing considering the same darn thing happened last time too.

Hopefully Chad gets it now. Did you see how fast he left the pitbox? Guess he was running from Jimmie. haha

When he had gas they sure knew he was in the race. Well he will be in the chase and lookout then.....

Hey Chad, the term is "splash and go", not "dash and slow". Now Anderson, one question please, why do you have the picture of a pimple off a wart hogs ass on your avitar?

That's a lot to ask for........

Newman would be nice. Heck it might just even be nice to see Reuti in victory lane without a rain out to help him, same goes with Joey. Even a Roush driver would be nice.

All of course if Tony can't win.

Hey girl. Were you at the race this weekend? To be honest, after Jimmie ran out I was hoping JR. would get to the front. I wanted to see a good slap and bang finish.

Yes Bren I was at the track burning my flesh off. What great races. Sometimes Michigan can be a snooze fest not this time.If Jr could have just got one more caution
I think he might have pulled it off.Guess we will never know for sure...lol Well on to Bristol
and with double restarts it should be a wham, bam .You and Michael have a good week. It's hot and dry here....Rain needed bad....

Should be interesting to say the least. I tried to find a post race interview but guess he didn't give one. Too busy running from Jimmie. haha.

Thank you dear. Michaels off this Sunday so he can watch with me finally. He watches at work but its not the same. I've tried to get my dog, Mickey, to watch with me but I don't think she likes Nascar. Bristol is one of my favorite tracks so I can't wait. Well you enjoy your day. Hot here too.

I think they said last night in a promo during one of the shows that it's Biff, not Chad, tonight.

Most have been saying that Jimmie should have been black flagged for jumping the start at two different restarts. Even the announcing crew on ESPN said Jimmie was off, and should have been flagged. Just another example of Nascar applying their rules when THEY want. Heck, they flagged Robbie Gordon, a driver I don't care for, for the same thing, but not Jimmie.
