    I was wondering that, myself! Impressive, eh?

    It was a dang good race - and, as I recall, the only "Big Name Sprint Cup Driver" was Kasey Kahne (he finished something like 7th? I think?) - so you got to see how up-and-comers, and the older-and-finishing-out-their-career-guys could race each other without the Superstars taking over.

    Dang, you got me so intrigued by this, I went back and looked at his races - he got something like a 324 at Dega......mostly middle-of-the-road scores, but some very smart usages of some the lessor drivers - like, he picked Stenhouse when he finished 2nd, and all that - if he just runs Th Big Guns now, he might climb like crazy -
    The way I won the Ducky's Championship last year was by just managing to stay in the 90th percentile, so I could make the chase there - but, I saved all my strong C drivers & a lot of JJ's, and everyone else had used them up - so I rocked The Chase based on saved drivers, and won The Championship. (This year, I'm having a rough time in Ducky's, saved too much and might not make The Chase - we shall see.....)

    Ryan Blaney is gonna kick some a z z, too - this second generation that has grown up with it - well, some are just okay, but Chase and Ryan look like The Future of NASCAR, to me......

    That was both a giggle and a piece of misery - much as a person can hate Kyle, you just gotta love Sam.... so if Kyle had been driving, it would have been a good kick - but with Sam driving, it was kinda sad.....

  • I know it is really, really hard - because, back when we had clever trolls, it was just too difficult to not get caught up in playing with them - I broke the "don't feed the animals" rule way too much, myself.......But, right now - -- all we have left is the dregs of the dregs of the dregs of trolls......nothing good or clever or funny or fun to play with. The ones here since Ditzi & Blojo drove off all the good posters - Regs & Sharp Trolls - just ain't worth rating or replying to. Let's starve 'em out - not rate or reply to them at all......there hasn't been a smart/clever troll around here since crazy ditzi and stooopid blojo drove everyone off from daily banter - let's let the Good Ones Regs' and even the sharp trolls) come back, and TOTALLY IGNORE (INCLUDING NOT RATING) the bottom-of-the barrel-trolls they left behind.......

    Yeah - something is unusually screwed up, even for this place - lots of comments on other boards about it......Q points have not been processed - don't remember it ever going this long. So, we shall see what we shall see.....

    Dang, it wouldn't post my reply, ROFLMAO! - guess the NASCAR board doesn't like the number "3" - no wonder it's so screwed up - I'll tell you on the other board, it was pretty - well, serendipitous, seriously!

    Gotta take Dood to the vet at 10:30 this morning - but, a third beer, switching between practice repeat & NNW repeat - I figure, 3 hours sleep should do the trick.....

    Don't worry about the "thumbs down" - the more you get, the Bigger Star You Are - or, bigger threat to the *mama's basement dwellers* (basically, they are the same thing, anyway) you are, out here!

    The biggest troll here has 23 profiles, and if he gets his panties in a twist, will spend about half-an-hour-signing in-and-out of each to rate the best posters 23 thumbs down, ROFLMAO - wear every thumbs down as a badge of honor!

    There is a highly respected player here at Yahoo! who used to post regularly out here, but hasn't since the Mo-Schitzi years - he can still be found in some specialty leagues - however - he is The Most Learned Bourbon Connoisseur I've ever met - we went to Dega together a couple of times - I was invited to his house to enjoy his collection pre-race - he has bourbons by the bottle that cost over a hundred dollars a shot in bars......and he Very Generously let me enjoy some, carefully poured in appropriate-sized snifters - OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Me, I'm a simpler girl - will drink Rebel Yell because it's all about the "Rebel" being smooth and sweet with a bite, and I think Maker's Mark's is a good treat.....

    But This MAN! He knows Bourbons inside out (as they know him, LOL) - and OMG - talk about an honor a privilege to drink from his private stock - almost as much as it was an honor and privilege to enjoy his company and do Dega with him twice!

    Well - Here's to Kentucky - we need a pleasurably rough and bumpy bourbon or whiskey for this one!

    You re right, Tom - I should have been clearer. I was, of course, cheering you on for your comment.

    The irony I was referring to was that NASCAR was built on the strong independent spirit of its racers and frequently independent teams - and with its passing to the next generation, it is now all corporate greed.

    Like you, seeing only 42 entrants hit me hard. I know many people don't care for the "back-marker" teams - but I think we need the Tommy Baldwins, Frank Stoddards, and Bob Jenkins.

    And, look at the strides Front Row Motorsports and Tommy Baldwin Racing have made after going from S&Ping to raise money in their early years - if they continue on their current paths, they will be truly competitive teams in a decade.....

    Only 42 entrants means there is little room for the dreamers - like Alan Kulwicki....
