Kyle Busch Gets Lucky Wins at Bristol

You have to admit, if you were Kyle Busch, can you think of two better drivers to have behind you on a green white and checker finish? Gordon wasn’t going to spin him and Jeff Burton hardly ever gets that aggressive to spin someone out to win, so, he was pretty lucky. Tony Stewart wasn’t very lucky at all, and I bet everyone who has him on their race league teams were happy and then sad, hehe, I know he hurt one of my teams. Anyway, sorry for the late post, been busy with the Race League stuff. Jeff Gordon is in the points lead again, or should I say already? While it makes you feel good, it’s way to early to get excited about it.

Qualifying at Bristol

Gordon gets pole in Bristol
I tuned in just in time to see Jeff make his run and grab the pole, so I wasn’t too disappointed that I didn’t get to see much of it. Looks like that ugly Car of Tomorrow helped a few drivers out, slowed down some others, as Jeremy Mayfield and AJ Allmendinger made their first races this year, I bet most of you who took Jeremy as one of your race league picks are definitely disappointed, that’s a big whole to pull out of.

Speaking of big holes to pull out of, Michael Waltrip did not make this race either, I wonder who made the final decision at Napa to go with Michael and not stay with DEI, and I wonder how long the contract is for. I guess they couldn’t see that is was mostly DEI’s restrictor plate program that helped him get a little bit of notoriety, he was the one who won the race that Dale Earnhardt was killed in, if I remember correctly.

What does everyone think of the COT? It is butt ugly, that is for sure, hopefully they still have some work to do on it or something, the car of last week sure looks much better to me. I know the whole point of the COT was to even the playing field some and make it more than just how much money you throw at it, but come on, everybody who likes Nascar has to like cars as well, and I want my vehicles to look good going fast or slow.

Here is how the field will start the race this Sunday in Bristol.

1 24 Jeff Gordon
2 9 Kasey Kahne

4 20 Tony Stewart

Matt Kenseth Wins the Sharpie 500 at Bristol

Matt Kenseth wins his fourth race of the year at the famous Bristol night race, the Sharpie 500. Talk about building momentum for the chase, Kenseth is on fire and looks like the guy to beat, but, that’s why they actually run the races, if it was that predictable, it wouldn’t be any fun to watch.

Here’s the top 5:

1 17 Matt Kenseth
2 5 Kyle Busch
3 8 Dale Earnhardt Jr.
4 10 Scott Riggs
5 24 Jeff Gordon

Apparently there was some controversy over the penalty that Mark Martin got for pitting outside the box, during the race they showed Jeff Gordon pitting and he was outside the box some, but the difference was Martin’s wheels were over the line, while Jeff Gordon’s were not, only the tail end of his car was hanging over. Check out the pics on this page to see for yourself.

This is a funny quote from Kyle Busch,

NASCAR needs a driver to embrace the “black hat” role, and Kyle Busch is just the guy. After he finished second to Matt Kenseth, the Shrub said, “I wish we could have gotten to Kenseth. That would have been a heck of a show. I’ve got plenty of door dings out there and I’m not sure I could have done it clean.”

A great sound bite … until he added: “So I’m probably glad I didn’t get there, really.”

I agree, what Nascar needs is one of those guys you just know is guilty by looking at him, one who would just give you that Snidely Whiplash laugh and walk away. There’s too many whiners and not enough haters, hehe.

You have to give the TV crew credit, they try to stir some controversy on every show, this time asking Jeff Gordon and Scott Riggs what their little discussion was about at the end of the race. Gordon said he was just trying to tell him to be patient and consistent to pass, while Riggs said he was just congratulating Gordon on the good finish. ;)
