What did you think of the race?

I know JK will be happy as well as a few converts to the Kyle camp, were you happy with the results?

Whatt jumped out at you that you liked or disliked about the race?

Is Denny doing his now famious swan dive to get out of the Chase for another year?

I loved it
Kyle has gotten some converts especially since his wife or Gibbs got his head on straight.
I liked the fact Kyle won. I didliked the fact that they had a caution at the end. I got a bit nervous. I also disliked the previous caution when J.J. was running 5th with some good drivers ahead, Blaney was running the very bottom at a slow speed foe several laps, J.J. pits and then the yellow comes out, J.J. ends up leading, never had to worry about passing 4 strong cars.
I don't think Denny is too happy right now. He has had some bad racing luck this year. Denny has showed that he's a better driver than his results this year'

Nice picture of whoever it is

I never heard what went wrong with Denny. Was it in the car or in his head? It didn't look like a tire went down or anything.

I was disappointed that JR couldn't get higher. I don't think he should have pitted for the GWC unless he was running out of gas. Hendrick needs to get that boy a better pit crew. He lost positions every pit stop exept for one where he stayed even. It must be hard passing the same people all day long and not getting any higher.

#18 Kyle Busch clinches a place in the Chase, at least via a wild card spot.

Was doing chores so I only got to keep 1 eye on the race. What I saw wasn't bad. Did see a few guys get real squirrely, track must have been real greasy.

You might be able to say a lot of things about Kyle, but his wins are no fluke. Doesn't seem to matter what kind of track or where he starts. This might be his year...ARGH! LOL

Just some driver with 4 wins. LOL

KB has a JGR engine in his car for the race and wins. Denny Hamlin has a TRD engine as is a non-factor, even before he scraped the wall and had tire issues he was not doing that great. Add to that all the other Toyoda's running TRD engines and not showing the power the JGR engines have, why are TRD and JGR combining their engine package? Just something to ponder.

I guess the bright side to a JJ/KB Championship run is the lack of success Kryle will have next year after loosing the Championship to JJ... (Not that I'm happy about JJ winning the Championship again)

I thought you were talking about the surly look avatar you posted. LOL
The pic on mine is my late wife in 2004 when we were in Ma. for a wedding. I was scanning pictures the other day and that one kept popping up. Our anniversary would have been August 28 so I figured she was telling me something by popping up constantly. She's been gone over two years now and I think of her every day. Thank You for the compliment Kodiak.
She was a looker and she could still fit in her wedding dress the whole 44 years we were married.

Raist; according to Gibbs the reason for the merge is Toyota has more money and more advanced engineering. He claims it will be much better combining his know how with theirs.

Michigan is tied with Fontana as my least favorite track, so most of my attention was focused on the Braves 1-0 win, and pitching gem by Tim Hudson.

The top two finishers are tools, I wish them the worst of luck in the rest of their NASCAR careers, and I hope Harvick gets Kyle, and Kurt gets Jimmie next week at Bristol.

But, Brad keselowski has climbed from 23rd in points to 12th over the past 5 races, he has 3 straight top 3 finishes. Hell, if he keeps racing like this, he won't even need the wild card to get him in the Chase.

He's the future of NASCAR, and a future champion. It's time to open your eyes.

the entire "future of NASCAR" is something that we all hope france and helton can figure out.

BK has been impressive of late. beyond my personal expectations. so has the penske org in both Cup and NW.

YEAH I watched our local kids take no prisioners in the LLWS. We are 2-0 and beating teams badly.
Actually what was more boring, our kids winning 13-0 and 10-0 or watching the race Sunday. Truth be told both were boring, but at the least the kids only do this a couple weekends in August, not over and over again over again over again over again.....
