    Fast cars turning left.:rolleyes:

    5 years ago I won an all expenses paid trip to the Phoenix 500, in a promo by Ridgid tools. I told 'em to give it to the next in line. Didn't even get a thank you.:(

    Do I care who wins....?

    Ya'll be nice, or I'll put ya on my 'ignore' list.:p

    Ha , crash bang Spencer, LOL. He grew up about 10 minutes from me. I used to love when he was driving and they came to Pocono. His pop and family run a junkyard and he hosted a huge cookout back in the yard. They would get some junkers running and had a small oval back near the woods. They would enjoy some hoppy beverages and race around the track. Dale Sr was good friends with Jimmy and Dale Jr drove in some of those "races" when he was 13 or 14 yrs old. Rumor has it he laid the chrome horn to Mark Martin pretty good one time.

    Nice pic but Pocono takes infield seating to new heights. LOL. Daughters boyfriend was on roof of our camper and asked to borrow my camera. Unbelievable.

    Carl starts on the pole and Tony starts in 15th
    This means that Tony has to pass 18 cars to win the cup.

    Go Carl Go

    Bad math there Marlin. He only has to finish four places in front of Carl. If Tony wins race and leads the most laps, the only way Carl win Championship is to finish second (Assuming Carl also leads at least one lap). Carl has advantage of being out of traffic at start. Gooooo Bobby #47 ..

    Bob I'm sure that you will understand this language when I say that I threw up a bunch in the back of my throat when I saw Michelle the Belle Obomba and Gill Biden give the opening call for the Gentlemen to start their engines.

    I wonder if she/they got there shots before hanging out with all those redneck people at the track.

    Marlin, while I'm not a fan of NASCAR, I do appreciate its history and that of the fans.

    I too just threw up a bit in my mouth at your mention of the the first lady and the anouncement.

    How does one go from hating our country to. 'Gentlemen, Start yer Engines'.:confused:

    There's so much WRONG with that!:mad::mad::mad:

    Congrats Tony!
    It has been a long time since another owner/driver won the championship.

    Amazing year of racing. So what do you think about a tie in points for first place?

    You are correct there Marlin. Not since my hero Alan Kulwicki and his "Polish victory Lap" backwards. LOL He won it in '92 on a shoestring budget. Tony is a complete driver and not many have won as many races in as many different divisions as Stewart. Congrats to him. Next year another championship for Bobby Gooo #47.
