R U a NASCAR Fan...Let's Talk!



Recommended Posts

Does anyone want to take any bets that Kennseth will find Gordon this week? It should be interesting. I can't believe Rocket Man finally got a pole!!

What are your thoughts of ABC? I prefer FOX b/c I think they do a better job overall, but the coverage of drivers seems to be more fair with ABC.

That was a long ending Time to Love me! Glad you had a good time!

Man, the last two weeks have been miserable for my man Dale Jr.! He has slid from 3rd to 11th in the points! He wasn't very happy with Dave Blaney! I don't know what Dave was thinking, but he just got on the bad side of the entire nation of Junior fans! Oh well, maybe Junior's luck of the last couple of weeks will change during this off-week and he'll rebound at Indy. Anybody going to the race?

What did you guys think about the whole Smoke-Bowyer-Carl Edwards thing? I've never really seen Edwards that ticked, he had some interesting post race commetns about Smoke....

"Man, I've got to choose my words carefully," said Edwards, not easily angered. "Let me just say this: If it weren't for respect of the sport and the people watching and his team and everything, he'd be out there bleeding right now.

"That's so frustrating. How can a person make it this far in life being that much of a jerk?"

"He turned into Clint and took both him and I out and probably made it just about impossible for us to make the Chase," Edwards said. "And then when I pull up beside him and wave my hand like, 'What was that about?' he gives me the finger.

"I mean, what a jerk. I don't even know what to say. It's amazing to me that someone can be that special."

Okay.. I'm a Tony fan, but I think he's getting a little out of control here lately, some of his crazy behavior from years past is raring its head again... maybe he needs to get a re-fresher course on the anger management stuff. He cracks me up though, he just doen't give a crap!

I did feel really bad for Carl becaue he seems like one of those genuine guys that is just thrilled to be where he is and is very appreciative to be there. I know he retailiated and probably shouldn't have, but I can't blame him.

GO DALE JR, GO SMOKE, GO CARL!!! Beat those Hendricks boys and the Busch brothers!

I missed the race yesterday. I took a nap and then we went to church b4 it was over. I'll have to watch it now since I had it tivo'd. I do feel bad for Carl....he's such a cutie putie. I do think Smoke has reverted back to some of his old ways too b/c of the pressure he's had. Not to mention, he's had similar things happen to him and nothing is done. These guys settle their differences on the track as it should be done. Not that Tony had a beef with Carl....have no idea....will have to watch the race.

Time To Love ~ How do you like the track at NH? Do you go to many races? I would LOVE to be able to attend races. I love feeling the roar when the cars go by....it's such a rush.

Hey, where are all you racers? Karen, Kim, Missy???? As you know, I don't have much to brag about these days. Tony is holding his own and only making the news when he shows a bit of his temper.

I love road courses as you can imagine. I think all our guys are up in the top 10 to start. Is anyone a Kurt fan? Not meant to offend if anyone is, but I can't believe he's out front. I hope it won't be for long.

GO SMOKE & ZIPPY!!!

I don't know about you, but I thought Bristol was boring.....especially for a night race. The most exciting part of the evening was when Gordon got a little bump. I've never heard such a cry baby. Sorry Missy.....I said it to my own mother too. She didn't take it so well. :phanvan

Spent the weekend at the Northwest Sprint Car tour! Got good and dirty ! it was great. Tony's cars finished 1 & 3 rd. It was my first big tour race to watch. We bought our tickets last January when we thought it was the World of Outlaws. They ran at a track that is about 75 miles north of the track we were at. We saw Kinser, Ladowski, Oh I can't think of Tony's other divers name. Any way we had fun!!! Missed last nights race but we have it recorded for later this evening.

DeAnn ~ You make me jealous. :D Sounds like a great time. I think some of the best drivers in NASCAR come from that kind of background and it gives them the basis to handle a car that slides all over the place. Those are fun races to watch. Your not missing much with the Bristol race like I said....at least that's my opinion.

I think we're in CA next week. The race to the chase is winding down. It's going to get dirty. Can't wait!! :)

BTW, how does it feel to go to a race after losing OVER 100 lbs? GREAT JOB!!! :D

I decided to chime in on this thread. My Boyfriend got me into Nascar. The driver's I follow are Dale Jr, Jaime McMurray, Tony Stewart and Kenny Wallace. I can't pick just one, those are my 4 must root for on race day. My Boyfriend is a HUGE Petty fan! That is one of my goals to go to a race once I lost 100 lbs so I can get around easier and not have to worry about fitting in the seats. I want to go next year to that HUGE Race Fan thing they have in CA every year as well!

Nice to see you post VelvetKiss. I like all the drivers you mentioned with Tony being my main man. My DH knows I REALLY love him. When we went to Daytona a few yrs ago, I requested an aisle seat. Didn't want to do the squeeze thing.

This thread saw more action earlier in the season, but it is picking up a little more now. Feel free to throw anything out. This is the LBT NASCAR family. We don't always agree, but we all love racing.

What's the fan thing in CA? Would like to hear more details.

Hey Guys! Yep, I'm with you 3loves, Bristol was a big snooze-fest. I was glad to see Junior finish 3rd! I hope he can hang in there and make the top 10! Man, I only saw Tony on TV once yesterday... every time I looked he was in 20th or something... He would have made the race more exciting if he had been up front. They were all conservative little points-racers and I DON'T LIKE IT!! Bristol is for bumping and running and for shoves and punts, not that boring crap!

Oh, well, on to Fontana! GO DALE JR!

BTW .. Kasey gets prettier every time I see him... MMMM...MMMM!

i apologize for being such a bad NASCAR fan of late. However, i really did NOT appreciate Jr. wrecking my man Carl last week. It was weird to hear the crowd booing for jr.!

With you I'm willing to share Tony :) (somewhat) Briston stunk for me also....Tony was driving a piece of junk. At least neither of the Busch brothers won. I kind of would have liked to see Burton win a race...it's been quite awhile. At least Jimmie Johnson didn't win again :confused: Matt Kenseth is getting his stuff in order for sure, but my main man will always be.....................

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
