So what did you think of the Kansas Race?

Was it worth watching ?

Do you think Jimmie is back on track or just a fluke?

Someone else surprise you?

Too bad for Kasey he did not make the chase, seems like he'd be winning it now with all the top finishes he's had.

I am jst not even sure.

Smoke hurt his own chances bad.

Don't understand things on the 24 team

Austin Dillon respectfully stayed out of trouble.

I hate any race track where first to fourth is like 15 second, regularly.

I think e15 will cause us all problems. I have recently purchased two pieces of power equip and both engines say do NOT use it.

There was probably a secret pitcrew swap after Richmond between the #24 and the #48.

did not catch Kansas ..

but, saw this on Jayski ;) ...

TRG to field 2nd car at Charlotte. Hermie Sadler will run the #71 TRG Ford at Charlotte, with regular driver Andy Lally in a 2nd TRG, the #77 Ford. Plans are to run two cars the rest of the season, with Lally in either the #71 or #77 and a 2nd driver in the other car. ...

and just 3 days after .... Speculation is that #6 Ragan could be penciled in for a ride with #71 TRG Ford, ... IF / more like when, Roush goes to down to 3 teams in 2012 ...

He has to.

He has 2 mothership teams without sponsors next year, and who knows how many satellite teams without sponsors. He needs to consolidate those sponsors he does have and figure out who's getting what sponsor, and for how many races, then fill in the gaps. Better to have the secondary ride for one of your "franchise" drivers ready incase you have to downsize.

Saw the NW race Saturday and surprisingly there wasn't too much coverage on her. In fact I tuned in about 30 mins late and it wasn't until I think halfway before they mentioned her, and that was because she was battling for position. It was a nice reprieve from having them going goo-goo over Brad K. clicking off laps 20 seconds in front of second place.

Warning / Warning .... Slime Green Alert ;-| ...

DANICA may be on the News tonight ...

Come to think of it the announcers talked about Kryle more in the race then Danica, and he wasn't even running in it.

The other thing I thought was interesting was that ESPN seems to be more interested in the "team championship points" (Owner Points) then they are about the driver's championship. There were multiple times they talked up the battle between the positions of the #60 and #18 (positions 1 and 2 in owner points) on the track and how that effected the owner points more then they talked about the positions of Ricky Stenhouse and Elliott Sadler (positions 1 and 2 in the driver points).
