Yeah, I guess that's one way to look at it. But it seems to me that knowing it was going to be a green-white-checke red they would have figured the tires weren't all that important. That seemes to be what the others did, at least. Like I said, 7th is great. I don't want to get greedy. But, man, Kasey was great today. I just wish he would have gotten all he deserved with that car. (Mar 8, 2009 | post #17)
Yeah, 7th, whoo... Nah, I am happy. I just think taking four tires was mistake. He definitely deserved a top 5. But even better is his points position- 9th! Now that's awesome. (Mar 8, 2009 | post #8)
Does anybody know why Kasey went a lap down, yet they waved Carl Edwards forward and told him he wasn't going a lap down, when Kasey was RIGHT behind him? I will be p*ssed if Kasey doesn't get back on the lead lap. I really think he's got a car that's capable of winning this darn race. (Mar 8, 2009 | post #3)
I'll definitely look into it. Thank you, guys! And about AJ's car, I bet it didn't help that he had Charter on his hood. They seem to mess everything up... Oh well, hopefully he'll do better next week. (Feb 24, 2009 | post #33)
Man, I really wish I had the scanner. You guys are always talking about the stuff that goes on between them during the race, and I always wish I had heard it. But that race was boring. So far this season, both races have been total snooze fests. At least this week Kasey got a better finish... with a worse car than what he had at Daytona. Ironic. Does anybody know what went on with AJ? I thought for sure he would have finished better than 29th. (Feb 23, 2009 | post #29)
Aww, that's so cool! I would definitely cheer with you. I always cheer for the people with the quietest applause. I love underdogs. It's funny though, how many people boo Jeff Gordon and Jaun Montoya. At the race I went to their boo's were actually louder than Kyle Busch's. (Feb 18, 2009 | post #15)
Thank you so much for saying that! Really, I think race fans have the most fun. Everybody else doesn't know what they're missing. I went to the Pepsi 400 in '07, and all the people there were great. I'm a Kasey fan, my dad's a Jeff Gordon fan (ugh), and all around us were Montoya fans, Kyle Busch fans, Vickers, Kenseth, Stewart and Edwards fans... and we had the best time with each other. So like you said, if they're considered "rednecks ", then rednecks are pretty cool people. (Feb 18, 2009 | post #11)
I agree that NASCAR shouldn't have canceled the 500 yesterday, that they should have restarted it today. I think every race should have that rule. They should restart the race the next day if it rains on the first day, then they can cancel it that day if it's still raining. Calling a race on the first day just seems too impatient, and so what if the fans at the race don't stay. But as a fan of most genres of music, I don't think all country music would be classified as redneck. Some, of course, but not all. I think it's more of the general idea of what NASCAR was, a southern sport, with southern born race car drivers. The people who say it's redneck (like my sister) have never really watched it, it seems. Also, my sister has a theory that the name "NASCAR" was created by guys who had southern accents, so when they said "nice car" it sound like "nas car"... but like I said, she hasn't ever watched a race.

Yeah, it said he was in 31st when they got back from the commercial break after the caution and all throughout the red flag. But it changed when the race became final. I have no idea how he moved two spots during a red flag. Like you said, though, I'll take it. (Feb 15, 2009 | post #28)
Figures. I was just talking to my dad whom lives in Florida, about half an hour away from Daytona and he said he didn't think it would raining there anymore. Poor Kasey, his car was way better than 29th, or where ever he ended up. He has got some really bad luck. ... and he races in a sport ran by goons... (Feb 15, 2009 | post #26)
Exactly. Even if it did look like it was going to rain all night, calling it fifteen minutes after the red flag comes out is too soon. Nascar said that they wouldn't have gotten it started again until around 11:30 tonight, and that the fans got to see a great show. But I know that I, at least, would rather see the whole race, no matter what time it is than to see Nascar dictate the results just because a few fans would find it to be too late to restart the race. That was the worst Daytona 500 I've ever seen. Granted, I haven't seen too many but that was just sad. (Feb 15, 2009 | post #23)
It's going to stop raining in about twenty minutes. I just checked the radar. This is ridiculous. Who ever makes these decisions are idiots. But, at least AJ finished 3rd. (Feb 15, 2009 | post #20)
Wow, I had no idea. That sucks. =[ How bad is it? (Feb 9, 2009 | post #35)
I'm obviously clueless, but what's wrong with his back? I feel stupid... (Feb 9, 2009 | post #32)

The place with a space shuttle
Everything. I've recently discovered how amazing it is here. I regretfully spent too long wishing I could do anything to go home and escape it all.
I Belong To:
Anything random, unique and creative.
When I'm Not on Topix:
I'm drawing pictures, reading a book, laughing until my face turns blue, writing a generally meaningless song or story, or having some good old fun.
Read My Forum Posts Because:
I voice my opinion as respectfully as possible.
I'm Listening To:
The sound of my dog snoring.
Read This Book:
The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
Drawing, painting, NASCAR, football, writing, talking, laughing, shopping, cheerleading, baking, having fun, the rain, and long days spent outdoors.
On My Mind:
Effing College. Boo. Maybe I'll become a Hobo...
I Believe In:
God. That everything happens for a reason. Myself at times... Other times I have to wait to prove to myself that I can do something before I'll actually believe it. Education. I think if everybody just took some time out to read a book, they would actually like the wisdom they've gained. I believe that one day I will amount to something. That I'll be successful, not measured by the amount of money I've made, or the number of people who know my name, but by how content I am with what I've done with my life. I also believe Kasey Kahne will one day be the Sprint Cup Champion.
