Who Woulda Thunk it?

The most competitive race of the season at Fontana?  The track designed to induce a coma?  Never.  Wouldn’t have believed if I hadn’t seen it myself.

The typical race on the left coast is normally a fuel mileage sprint to the end, with a very lonnng nap at the beginning.  Not so yesterday.  There were enough blown tires and motors to pretty much keep even the most jaded of NASCAR fans tuned in.  With less than a 100 laps to go the race got busy and interesting, really quick.
It’s safe to say that bunching up the cars with 40 to go, would cause a little fender rubbing.  However, I was certainly surprised to see so many drivers in the hunt and so obviously hungry for a win.  Not sure if this is them trying to prove something with the new car or just a side effect of a bad economy and trying to keep sponsors happy.

Nevertheless, if you boys would drive like that every weekend your fans will come back.  Dang, I’m almost tempted to go buy a ticket.

Tony, Tony, Tony
I say this at least once per season, “Tony, what were you thinking?”.  Now sing it like Dierks.  Dude is it blocking on the last lap at Homestead?  Should little Joey ask “WWTD?”  Come on.  The kid had a lightning fast car, was up front all day and digging for a win.  And he beat you.  Get over it.

Your words were uncalled for and made you look more like a jerk.  Now you get to work ALL season to prove that Tony isn’t a mean bully.

Denny, Denny, Denny
“You, too?”  As the kids on the playground say…you started it.  Yep, you hit him first.  And please let the record show, sometimes Michael Waltrip just needs to Shut up.  Or at least review the last three laps before bowing down to the Toyota gods.  Darrell and his sidekick race commentators, said with 2 ½ laps to go that Denny would put the bumper to Joey if he caught him.  Well Denny caught him and got Joey squirrely.

Did he expect Joey to just move over?  Or give him any more room?  I don’t know what kind of issue Denny has other than my previous post alluded to sleep deprivations, but he needs to get some help or a nap.

Way to NOT back down Joey.  Don’t take no crap off the old guys.  You got a great ride this year.  Keep it up front and make them race.  Because that’s what you all get paid to do.

I’m soooo looking forward to Martinsville.
