msnascar47-where are you hearing rumors -- haven't hear a thing
jtg daugherty racing-Texas will be the only full blown custom scheme for the rest of the year. We will announce a new sponsor for Dover soon
jdonovan47-bobby going to SHR is one of them
JWilson47-Nice mrtim, I play 2nd base to. Im a really good fielder, I just have to work on hitting. I slumped big time this year.
mrtim-me either, quiet is good in this business

JWilson47-WE just gotta wait and see.
jdonovan47-well jtg d their contract with MWR is over
jtg daugherty racing-Rumors mean nothing to us Cali, dont give them credibility, don't empower them. We know what the deal is, we will make announcements at the appropriate time.

mrtim-jtg daugherty racing :} :}
jdonovan47-the officials are VER VERY quiet

Doug-i;ll be here
JWilson47-Wellm college football is back on
Doug-Todd take the hauler out and dry the track
Mike 47-really? dryers went out around 740ish
jtg daugherty racing-I can confirm we are not joining with wood bros. If you know our history, you know that is not going to happen. We just co-own a building together, that is all.
Mike 47-so that leaves it to be about 9 40
JWilson47-^ Yeah, I wouldnt think you would join the Wood Bros.
jdonovan47-wood bros were with jtg in 08

jdonovan47-one official said thats enough...
jdonovan47-dont know enough what lol
msnascar47-looks like ESPN used up their time slot for now
OKCowpoke-Well the forecast don't look good for Monday or tuesday
JWilson47-Might as well watch college football instead of no racing with nascar is what ESPN is thinking
Mickey47-ESPN knows there will be no racing tonight.
DeBora-[b]What? They just left the NASCAR and didn't say a word why or whether or not they'll be back?
msnascar47-They'll be back when the race starts -
mailbox-They dont know anything yet
JWilson47-Well we got in hour and probably 20 minutes. They be back when it starts
Tobysmom-watching food network
JWilson47-They will give us updates

OKCowpoke-I can tell Bobby isn't worried about next year. So he must be secured
Tobysmom-I love Chopped
jtg daugherty racing-Small cell approaching track, if it unleashes we will be done for the night
DeBora-[b]Good because I hate Challenge.
Mickey47-Hey Todd, I was planning on coming down and getting the tires for you today till i saw the rain moving in.
DeBora-[b]i love Chopped!
roll400ex-Race or no race?
jdonovan47-officials just said if it doesnt rain the race will be around 10-10:30
mrtim-OKCowpoke quiet is good!
JWilson47-Dont know yet
jtg daugherty racing-Thanks Mickey. I would have let you too!
DeBora-[b]JTG, I figured that. Hubby said storms are coming and they won't have time to dry the track before the next group comes. I wish NASCAR wouldn't take so long to make official decisions.
Tobysmom-I agree DeBora
jdonovan47-officials just said if it doesnt rain the race will be around 10-10:30
jdonovan47-lets hope it doesnt
mrtim-but it's great bonding time!
DeBora-[b]Jdonovan, are you getting this from Trackpass?
mailbox -I agree with DeBora, but I dont want anyone hauling off turn 1 200+ with a wet track
jtg daugherty racing-Lots of weepers out there, that is the concern
jdonovan47-but i just copied and pasted they said that like 8-10 minutes ago
jdonovan47-brb gonna get some nachos :)))
DeBora-[b]If the weather is going to get as bad as I have been told, I hope the haulers and teams get out okay!
JWilson47-Im not confident that we will race tonight. Thats why I havent got my Bobby hat, shirt, or cup out yet.
cali_4_pinkpacecars-JTGD are the guys restin or watching Bobby n Terry 1996 or what? Where is all the pit equipment?
DeBora-[b]We do have our little rituals. lol
mailbox -Looking at the radar, it looks like it will miss the track, but I have been known to be rong.
jdonovan47-good word from the officials :)
JWilson47-What was it?
jdonovan47-"backstrech is good just have to get the bottom"
DeBora-[b]I am taking the word of a meteorologist and my hubby and they have not been wrong, so far. They say it is going to rain. I can't read a map so I have to trust them. lol
DeBora-[b]Media on radio will come back at 9:30
mailbox -They would know better than I would.
jtg daugherty racing-Pit equip covered up on pit road, guys are trying to stay out of trouble. Klein, Dennis and Kulak are always scheming something though...
mrtim-time for ice road truckers, folks!! dry the track for me!
DeBora-[b]They way I know it is going to rain is my allergies act up. lol Meteorologist say no rain, nose says yes rain. Nose knows. lol
mailbox -My kinda guys.
DeBora-[b]JTG, we want to hear about the schemes! I need fresh ideas. lol
mailbox -Is that what Said said?
Doug-it will rain, but it would be nice to get some laps in first, i think there is a chance for that
Tobysmom-Great Food Truck Race
Mickey47-I bet that crew can come up with some stuff.
DeBora-[b]I've got a good one, take some dark bean dip, smear it on the bathroom light switchs, water knobs, and wherever someone will touch and turn lights off. Victim comes in, flips the switch, opens stall or washes hand and freaks out when he sees his fingers!
jtg daugherty racing-They did a big one earlier, planned it all week long. Can't say what, but oh man!!!
mailbox -Your evil!!!!
JaBee47-another delay in th ball game...WV is leading 34-13....time to go home Marshall
Doug-they act this WV game is the superbowl, who CARES?!?!
jdonovan47-why cant you say???????????????? cant be but so bad...
JWilson47-Football suspended again for lightening. So back to nascar
DeBora-[b]Actually, I wish that was my joke. My husband co-worker did it and my husband to sit back and watch the victim.
DeBora-[b]Thank you John. I had changed it to another channel.
JaBee47-they have to wait for 30 minutes...of clear weather....sheesh...poor ESPN....weather problems all over

jtg daugherty racing-Officials call for cars to pit road at 9:45
Tobysmom-tks for keeping us updated
jdonovan47-i heard the officials say race round ten
msnascar47-that means it'll be 2oclock before it's over --
coolhandsbobby-holy full house, was not expecting it
DeBora-[b]Hummm....I am still not believing it yet. I do not want to get my hopes up.
jdonovan47-hey jtg i bet i beat you to the punch when the race is cancelled

msnascar47-you going to do tweets during the race?
jdonovan47-raing at the track!!
Mickey47-If they start it It won't make it the full race before the rain gets here again.

BillyR-radar looks good
mailbox -Yep rain all day
coolhandsbobby-good thing tomorrow is a holiday
jdonovan47-they said they lost 3-4
DeBora-[b]Seriously Billy? Is it because it is a slow moving system?
jtg daugherty racing-I will try to tweet, but the iPad doesn't work well doing all three formats, tweet, Facebook and the chat. Data rate is too slow. I need my laptop for that and I didn't bring it
jdonovan47-just a drizzle
Mickey47-I see the rain in the lights.
msnascar47-where are you hearing this?
msnascar47-NO you don't see rain -- I haven't seen rain in months so what do I know.
mailbox-Yeah, thats it! Thats the ticket.
Mickey47-Me neither, but I have a good memory. lol
jtg daugherty racing-There is a small cell over us right now, might last 5 minutes
DeBora-[b]If they do et this race in, I will be so exhausted tomorrow and know the teams are too.
jdonovan47-officials said they lost the back straight now
Mickey47-That looks like more than a drizzle.
coolhandsbobby-give it up nascar, wait til there is no rain
coolhandsbobby-let the teams and drivers relax
jtg daugherty racing-Yeah, we are done
jdonovan47-lost 3-4 and back strech
coolhandsbobby-when do they race again

coolhandsbobby-when do they give up on a track and reschedule it
BillyR-dont look good tomorrow or Tue
coolhandsbobby-don't leave Bobby behind at the track
msnascar47-they haven't call it have they?
DeBora-[b]If they cannot get it in today or tomorrow, they have to wait until Monday after Richmond, right?
Mickey47-They will shortly
jtg daugherty racing-If we don't race by Tuesday night it will be postponed until Monday morning after Richmond
DeBora-[b]No, NASCAR hasn't called it.
jaa 47-whats the latest NASCAR will startz/
BillyR-they can try to squeeze it in tomorrow
DeBora-[b]They aren't reporting anything now. Will be back on air at 9:30. JTG will hear something before we fans do.
BillyR-but dont look good
izzy47-Bobby's interview during rain delay: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LGBHZchGXI4
coolhandsbobby-you rock megan
jdonovan47-the officials are talking about if to keep on the dryers
DeBora-[b]That was also a nice segment about Bobby and Terry
jdonovan47-they just said to stop
jtg daugherty racing-Sending trucks out again to inspect and
jaa 47-its pouring
DeBora-[b]JDonovan, where are you getting your information?
BillyR-they wont race tonight
jaa 47-could they start the race at midnight?
coolhandsbobby-that is what I was going to ask
jdonovan47-listening to the officials radio
DeBora-[b]I'm on Pitcommand and they are reporting they will be back at 9:30
jtg daugherty racing-Rained hard for two minutes, now has stopped
coolhandsbobby-they could, but not fair to the teams of drivers, they have been going ssince dawn today
jdonovan47-click on officials not radio
Mickey47-Hey Todd, Watch WSB Channel 2 weather with Glen Burns. If Glen Burns predicts it, it's going to happen.
DeBora-[b]Donvan, I never noticed that before, thanks! I just thought they had drivers only in that area.
jdonovan47-no prob glad i could actually help soem one :)
jaa 47-agreed coolhand, but i think adrenline would get them through a late race
jaa 47-looks like nascar wants to get this race in tonight
DeBora-[b]I've seen the scan drivers, the radio broadcast, and the individual driver options, but never noticed the officials option.
jaa 47-officials said the rain is picking up again
coolhandsbobby-where did everybody go
jtg daugherty racing-Half of our guests have left, half stuck around.
JWilson47-Alright im back, whats the update?
DeBora-[b]NASCAR may be powerful, but I doubt they can win over Mother Nature. lol
DeBora-[b]John, officials stated rain has picked up again.
jaa 47-looks like we have a window from about 11pm tonight to about 4 am
jdonovan47-They are really trying to make this a night race
msnascar47-Well I won't be watching, feel sorry for the folks at the track.
mailbox-They wont race that late
DeBora-[b]Billy, did you get my post about the tornado history project?
coolhandsbobby-call me selfish, but if not tonight or tomorrow...I say wait until the 12th to race,
`BillyR-i already knew about that
jaa 47-when i say a window...chance of rain is about 25-35 percent in that 5 hours
jaa 47-after 4am 100 percent chance
DeBora-[b]Okay, just checking. I figured you knew about it but wanted to share, just in case.
cali_4_pinkpacecars-Hey there goes the pink pace car again flagwave
coolhandsbobby-if they start at 11, that is crazy and dangerous, yes i know these are mostly professional race car drivers, but fatigue etc is not good
coolhandsbobby-Plus the teams
jtg daugherty racing-I'm yawning right now!
coolhandsbobby-correct me if I am wrong, but in years past Nascar would call the races alot sooner than this at Atlanta
JWilson47-There probably all sleeping right now......Besides Brian. lol
JWilson47-^ Eh, its debateable
`BillyR-In my opinion it would be better to race tonight
coolhandsbobby-are there still pictures on the right side of this web page
JWilson47-No oppurtunity the next couple days.
`BillyR-with this tropical storm models are all over the place with it
coolhandsbobby-but starting at 11 at night, is ridoculous
`BillyR-yea but its better then having to come back next week
coolhandsbobby-that was supposed to be ridiculous
mrtim-great for the west coast!
JWilson47-^True, but I think they woud rather do it tonight instead of waiting tommorrow, or tuesday, or next week.
JWilson47-Lol Billy, great minds think alike!
`BillyR-we may have a problem next week in richmond if Katia makes landfall friday or sat on the east coast
DeBora-[b]I really don't think we have a choice.
`BillyR-right now Katia is not forecasted to make landfall but the chance is always there
JWilson47-Sorry to sound dumb, but how do I read it?
mailbox-Lets get SOMETHING in tonight. We can pick this up tomorrow if we need to.
JaBee47-Billy...I have see the same thing about Katia...not sure it is going to curve back to the Atlantic like some models...and could come to Virginia
JWilson47-Lets get to at least half way tonigh
JaBee47-I loved how they said...its alreay past Mark Martins bedtime
coolhandsbobby-half way is not a good race, jmo
mailbox -Better than none.
Tobysmom-true, not a good race, but better than nothing
msnascar47-But I'll bet he's not the only one sleeping.
JWilson47-Its a good race if Bobby is winning.
coolhandsbobby-its not like they will never race this race
cali_4_pinkpacecars-I'm thinkin the
jdonovan47-Officials said at the least 3 hours to dry the track
coolhandsbobby-but weather that makes it 12:30
DeBora-[b]Officials are stating it will take at least 3 hours, at least, to dry the track
JWilson47-3 hours, just call it.
jaa 47-forget about
JWilson47-Thats a demoralizer
jaa 47-why cant they just run it on wednesday>
jaa 47-granted time constraints
cali_4_pinkpacecars-I'm thinkin the wild card teams, etc might just as soon race tonight and not have to wait til Tues if poss, so they know where they stand and can prepare for RIR
JWilson47-They probably got to get to Richmond.
Tobysmom-Still there jtg?
JWilson47-He fell asleep
jtg daugherty racing-Yep, just checking sources
Tobysmom-And what are your sources saying? Inquiring minds want to know :)
jtg daugherty racing-Need to get resources ready for Richmond, Tuesday or nothing
coolhandsbobby-Do you do all the scheduling to Todd
JWilson47-Thats what I was thinking JTG
Mickey47-The haulers will have to get back to the shops to get their Richmond cars and get to Richmond. Can't run Wed.
jtg daugherty racing-No, others do
`BillyR-in this case nascar should have moved the race to last night
jdonovan47-CHAD222 its rained stopped and now their try to dry it again
DeBora-[b]It is going to be interesting how this is going to play out. Surely they are not going to start a race at 1am
jaa 47-deb...they may
`BillyR-tuesday 11 am
jdonovan47-tuesday 11 am
jdonovan47-yep officials just said
coolhandsbobby-safe flight and drive back to NC

jdonovan47-see you all on TUESDAY!!!!
mailbox -Tuesday? That blows!!!
coolhandsbobby-hopefully speed will rerun thie race on speed Tuesday evening
Tobysmom-I'm a teacher....I'll be in school too. Oh well....
JWilson47-First day of school is tuesday :(
Mickey47-I knew it would get it in tonight nor Monday.
cali_4_pinkpacecars-Don't most teams have a 2nd truck. Problem is a small team like ours probably doesn't have alot of extra man power like a HMS would have
`BillyR-well tuesday afternoon looks ok
DeBora-[b]Billy can I hold you to that? lol
Coolhandsbobby-its not like they are going cross country
cali_4_pinkpacecars-thank heavens coolhands
`BillyR-ill let you know more about the forecast later
Coolhandsbobby-what Boblanta needs is heat and sun to dry the track, so it will be ready to go
JaBee47-Who knows what this storm is going to do...it just keeps on raining
DeBora-[b]Boblanta needs to send the rain to my town. lol
DeBora-[b]Well, I am leaving. Good night all.
roll400ex-Tuesday at 11?
cali_4_pinkpacecars-If the weather gets as bad as they predict, will they drivers n crews even be able to fly in or out if they are planning to
Mickey47-The worst weather will be tomorrow. Flying out tonight should be no problem.
cali_4_pinkpacecars-gotchya well seeya all on the pages
Mickey47-Most teams will stay till the race. Drivers might have other obligations or commitments to kept between now and Tuesday.
