[jaa 47] ready for today?
[megan] yup, I think so. you?
[jaa 47] yea...i think as long as bobby stays out of trouble should get a solid ifnish
[megan] ya I think he'll be fine
[jaa 47] one positive i take is the 47 is way faster than other cars running triad
[jaa 47] bobby is in the first race, right?
[megan] get to get it done and out of the way
[jaa 47] i think jtg is happy with the car
[jaa 47] which is a good sign....seems like they had the handling down yesterday
[megan] yes, it does seem that way, so I'm happy
[megan] did ya see jtgd's redone site?
[jaa 47] yea...i like it
[jaa 47] but couldnt find the chatroom link
[megan] well there are lots of pages to find one. there is one on each of the sponsor pages via the racesavers part of the site(under racing)
[jaa 47] got ya
[jaa 47] im out...ill jump on here later
[megan] welcome back
[jaa 47] hey
[jaa 47] wonder if we will get a crowd in here
[megan] I don't know about a crowd but a few people at least
[megan] hey Donovan!
[jaa 47] hey
[megan] Trish said to say hi and to cheer Bobby on for her since she has to work
[jaa 47] hopefully they fixed bobbys in car audio on trackpass
[jaa 47] so it isnt slow low
[jaa 47] so low
[megan] hope they did too
[jaa 47] nevermind looks like no in car audio
[jaa 47] for todays race
[megan] well still hope they have it taken care of. was a little annoying last year, but ah well
[jaa 47] yea...on raceview it says no audi for todays race
[jaa 47] audio
[jaa 47] can't type at all today
[jaa 47] always loved these races...when i was younger middle school/high school my parents would let me leave school early so i could watch
[jaa 47] was like 2002-2007
[jaa 47] think these races may be bleh today
[jaa 47] bc w/ gen 6 no one wants to wreck
[derek] i made it
[megan] good, good
[derek] yes it whouldnt work on my internet exploer but it works on google crome
[derek] very but im gonna restart my computer becasuse its beeing werid ill be back b4 the race starts
[jaa 47] prob need to update java
[megan] well he said he has, but who knows
[BillyR] ok here i am
[BillyR] goofy chat
[BillyR] now to find a stream online cause the cable isnt working
[BillyR] is it live online anywhere?
[BillyR] found a link.. now to hope its an english broadcast
[BillyR] since i never had to worry before.. where do we need to finish to get in
[jdonovan47] I can't seem to get raceviewq to work...
[megan] not last
[BillyR] wow.. who wants to bet nascar changes a rule if JR cant race in
[jdonovan47] no audio for for this race. Anyone else see that?
[jaa 47] yes
[BillyR] i gave up wasting my money on pitcommand
[jaa 47] its redone
[jaa 47] for this year
[jdonovan47] no more pitcommand only raceview...
[BillyR] maybe I'll try the free 2 weeks again
[BillyR] see i liked pit command
[BillyR] keep it simple..
[BillyR] does it take 20min to load
[derek] well im back.. but my main computer crashed
[jdonovan47] it is just acting stupid for me
[jdonovan47] download unity player.... I DID LIKE 5 TIMES
[jdonovan47] then it says no ausio for this race....
[jdonovan47] Why the heck not?
[BillyR] secret audio today.. ha
[BillyR] don't remember did they have audio last year
[megan] let's go racing
[BillyR] so how many are we racing to get in
[jdonovan47] just about everyone
[jdonovan47] the top 6 in points plus danica, Gordon and the top 10 from qualifying are in
[jdonovan47] about the top 10
[jdonovan47] raceview is so stupid.... two races already and two of them raceview has messed up
[jaa 47] trackpass
[BillyR] did bobby ever say anything about the new car yet i know some were comparing it to the old pre-COT cars
[jaa 47] is down
[jaa 47] wtf
[jaa 47] wont even load
[coolhands] hey everyone
[BillyR] wow that sucks
[jdonovan47] yea, Bobby has talked about the car a bit
[BillyR] i complained once about trackpass and they added on 2 weeks to my account
[BillyR] when I had it
[coolhands] whats everyone expecting from this race? I don't think Bobby is going to mix it up at all. Expecting 15th or further back
[BillyR] cant finish too far back we wont make the race
[coolhands] only need to beat one or two guys
[BillyR] if something happend to Kurt Busch
[coolhands] well one of two of the backmarkers
[JWilson47] Hey guys
[JWilson47] Not a big turnout today
[coolhands] hopefully a few more will trickle in
[coolhands] just posted on the wall for the chat
[jdonovan47] is anyones trackpass working?
[coolhands] I dont have trackpass
[coolhands] pretty sure there is gonna be a good sized wreck during this race
[BillyR] just not involving us
[coolhands] may boot out one of the semi big names from the race
[BillyR] what happens if JR doesnt make the race.. they'll riot
[jaa 47] raceview not working
[jaa 47] ugh
[JWilson47] Here we go
[jdonovan47] stupid crap
[megan] green flag!
[BillyR] im watching online a little behind you guys
[coolhands] im nervous already
[coolhands] first time danica has been drafting in speedweeks
[JWilson47] Im so nervous
[JWilson47] p 15
[coolhands] first time bobby has really drafted also
[jdonovan47] Bobby drafted in yesterday
[BillyR] outside line is fast
[coolhands] im going to be watching how the car pulls up in the draft with the underpowered engine
[coolhands] 3 wide already
[BillyR] back by us also
[coolhands] worried about that side draft suction they were talking about
[BillyR] that is an awesome cam
[JWilson47] p 11
[megan] c'mon Bobby
[JWilson47] Where do we have to finish?
[coolhands] come on bobby clear that
[JWilson47] p 10
[jdonovan47] top 17 i think
[jdonovan47] and he is in
[megan] I thought top 15
[BillyR] really surprised the 48 isnt dropping back to let JR in
[coolhands] car doesnt look too bad
[jdonovan47] it might be 15
[JWilson47] Im scared lol
[coolhands] or if busch gets in on finishing position we would get past champ provisional
[JWilson47] I dont like the new qualifying rules
[jaa 47] p10 still
[BillyR] unless we race our way in
[jaa 47] we were the fastest last time by
[jaa 47] p9
[jdonovan47] is your trackpass up now jaa?
[jaa 47] no
[jaa 47] using live leaderboard
[jdonovan47] oh ok
[coolhands] gonna need a good pit stop if this keeps green
[coolhands] jr isnt really moving up
[coolhands] what make is the 95
[jaa 47] yes
[jaa 47] roush yates engine i believe
[BillyR] running in the top10 love it
[coolhands] im pretty happy with the power of the car in the draft
[JWilson47] Hopefully we can get a breakway
[coolhands] that would be awesome
[JWilson47] Pack spliting up
[coolhands] seems like the car is better than last year. he is able to tuck up closer to the car in front
[jaa 47] have in car audi woohoo!
[coolhands] high line seems to really be the place to be
[jaa 47] nascar mobile app for iphone has iot
[BillyR] how much is it
[blab47] Hey hey
[coolhands] Looks liek the car is getting tighter the more the tires wear
[blab47] Is this race live streamed anywhere?
[jaa 47] 24.99 for the season
[coolhands] second pack caught up
[coolhands] thanks for the update on danica nascar
[blab47] still 9th?
[blab47] at work cant see
[coolhands] main 10 car pack pulling away a bit again
[blab47] Everyone pretty much single file?
[coolhands] top 10 are
[JWilson47] This is confusing lol
[coolhands] atleast we arent having to stress at all
[JWilson47] I am lol
[JWilson47] I dont want to miss the race
[coolhands] i doubt he will come close to missing the race
[coolhands] as long as the pit stop is good
[blab47] lets go bobby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
[JWilson47] falling back
[coolhands] I'd liek to see how he does infront of the 95
[JWilson47] p 11
[JWilson47] Bobby to the bottom
[coolhands] looks strong
[luckycali] <---- It's me Diane. new nickname for in here.
[jaa 47] go bobby
[JWilson47] Sucker hole
[coolhands] not good
[JWilson47] Back up top
[jaa 47] eh got shuffled back
[coolhands] really got shuffled back in the back few laps
[coolhands] maybe too tight
[luckycali] What leaderboard do you all have on the right side ---> over there ?
[coolhands] Homestead lol
[BillyR] kinda old
[luckycali] Whats' everybody listening on at nascar.com?
[coolhands] Harvick really moved up
[JWilson47] To the bottom
[coolhands] probably at the bottom to get ready to pit
[JWilson47] here we come
[JWilson47] I think so
[JWilson47] what the heck
[jaa 47] alone?
[jaa 47] what the heck
[coolhands] not a good descision there
[JWilson47] Stupid stupid stupid
[coolhands] we are not fast at all by ourselves
[jaa 47] maybe a caution soon i hope
[coolhands] i doubt it
[BillyR] oh man.. not a good call there
[coolhands] hopefully the stop was fast and puts us ahead of some others
[BillyR] is bobby saying anything
[JWilson47] This is bad
[sinker] I guess we will see
[JWilson47] Gotta catch up to that group in front of us
[coolhands] now im stressed
[JWilson47] Caught up to a group
[JWilson47] 2 tire stop was big
[coolhands] hopefully not a group of triad's
[JWilson47] Where with Montoya and Keslowski group
[jaa 47] did we take 2?
[JWilson47] Yeah I believe so Jaa
[coolhands] we are in transfer spot
[megan] this is so much torture
[JWilson47] Spread apart
[jaa 47] any way we miss the race?
[JWilson47] If we dont get the top 15 I think
[coolhands] if we dont race our way in and busch doesnt we may be in trouble
[jdonovan47] this is epic.... Chance to miss the race is just so.... IDK Im not used to it
[BillyR] if we don't make the race im throwing my laptop out the window lol
[JWilson47] Need Busch to race his way in to
[jaa 47] horrible car to pit when we did
[JWilson47] Busch is in 7th, which is good
[JWilson47] How many past champs make it?
[coolhands] if we beat reuti and brian k then we are on no matter what
[jdonovan47] 1 past champ
[JWilson47] Alright, well Keslowski is the only one behind us
[coolhands] brian k not brad
[jdonovan47] he is locked in so dont worry about him
[JWilson47] Yeah thats what I thought
[coolhands] we lost the draft
[JWilson47] No way
[coolhands] 192 mph last time pack is 196-8
[JWilson47] p 15
[megan] let's go Bobby
[coolhands] we are with the 42 and 2 42 isnt locked in right
[JWilson47] Is it all spread out?
[JWilson47] 2 is I think
[jdonovan47] 2 is locked in 42 isnt
[JWilson47] So right now we have the past champ?
[BL47] I made it , late but I'm here
[coolhands] really bad call with the pit stop there
[coolhands] right now we are in on position
[BillyR] so some start and parker is going to make the 500 over a regular driver.. so stupid so freakin stupid
[coolhands] any further back and its based off speed or past champ
[jdonovan47] They had to pit Bobby was complaining about the handeling
[jdonovan47] Bobby did not get in on speed
[jdonovan47] we need to race in or hope all the other past champs race in
[coolhands] but the speeds of the first 7 that didnt make it count correct
[jdonovan47] first 6 i think
[jdonovan47] then a past champ
[JWilson47] First 6 yes
[jaa 47] well if we finish ahead of the 83/87 we should be in?
[jaa 47] right?
[coolhands] and we were faster in speed than ruetimann and brian kes so thats two cars right there and that makes a 43 car field
[JWilson47] Here we go
[coolhands] As long as brad stasys with us the 42 wont be able to psass
[jaa 47] he should
[jaa 47] this is what we needed
[jaa 47] i think
[jdonovan47] thank you God!!
[coolhands] meh id rather it stay green and take my chances with the 42
[JWilson47] That was big
[BillyR] there we go
[ryan] "that changes everything"
[BillyR] we're finw
[BillyR] sigh of relief
[jaa 47] thank the lord we lost the draft
[jaa 47] and we werent in the pack anymore
[BillyR] wow no soft wall there
[megan] thank goodness we don't have to do this for every race...the actual qualifying will be enough
[jaa 47] p11
[JWilson47] Were not in yet guys, still have to hold off the guys behind
[jaa 47] haha
[BillyR] idk if i could do this every week
[coolhands] i think we are a bit worse off now
[coolhands] atleast before we only had to worry about the 42
[jdonovan47] but now we aqre closer to the front
[JWilson47] Got to race hard now
[coolhands] if it goes 2 wide who knows where we will end up
[sinker] We were strong in the pack earlier
[JWilson47] We probably ha better chances with the 42
[coolhands] yeah 42 was damaged and wouldnt have been able to pass
[jaa 47] p10
[jdonovan47] p.10 all Bobby has to do is stay in the top 15
[BillyR] i think we will be fine
[jdonovan47] Honestly I like this drama with us
[luckycali] You can do it BLab
[coolhands] we should be fine
[coolhands] i dont think he will push the car at all though
[JWilson47] Luckily were on the high side
[JWilson47] This is going to get wild
[JWilson47] green flag
[JWilson47] 4 to go
[JWilson47] Bad restart
[jaa 47] terrible
[jaa 47] cmon bob
[coolhands] never restarts good
[sinker] Nothing stupid
[JWilson47] Triad power right there
[jaa 47] haha
[BillyR] good old triad!!
[JWilson47] looking good
[coolhands] he could have an extra cylinder and still not restart good
[JWilson47] Be smart Bobby
[jaa 47] i cant even look
[JWilson47] p 7
[coolhands] oh no
[BillyR] oh no what
[JWilson47] Oh boy
[coolhands] waltrip holding everyone up
[JWilson47] To the middle
[JWilson47] To the top
[coolhands] i dont like this
[JWilson47] Good moce to the middle
[jaa 47] bob is racing
[jaa 47] not messing around
[JWilson47] white is out
[sinker] Where are we
[jaa 47] 12
[JWilson47] to the top
[JWilson47] Great move
[sinker] Go go go
[JWilson47] Great job Bobby
[jaa 47] 12
[jaa 47] i thik
[JWilson47] Were in
[jaa 47] p12
[coolhands] waltrip was terrible that run
[BillyR] can i breath now
[jaa 47] 26 slowed us down i think
[jaa 47] bobby looked racy
[JWilson47] Heck off a job by Bobby
[sinker] 12 sweet,
[jdonovan47] nice job
[jdonovan47] og my
[jdonovan47] oh my
[BillyR] we're in
[sinker] leave the past champ provisional for terry, just in case
[luckycali] mikey and his 26 angels made it in too ;)
[BillyR] terry should get it now
[jaa 47] everyone gonna stick around for the 2nd duel?
[JWilson47] I am
[coolhands] yeah rooting for terry second duel
[JWilson47] Bobby did a great job racing that car
[luckycali] yup. Still trying to figure out nascar.com tho.
[JWilson47] Made some great moves
[jaa 47] new nascar.com blows
[jaa 47] so bad
[sinker] I like the previous version
[jdonovan47] raceview hast' worked yet
[jaa 47] old site was fine..new one is so buggy
[coolhands] 11th on the tracker
[jaa 47] yup finished p11 it looks like
[coolhands] scott speed in 15th
[jdonovan47] made it in that what matters
[megan] I got the duel 1 to come up for raceview but the race never started
[jaa 47] actually i think its wrong
[jaa 47] p12
[jdonovan47] megan, I didn't even get that far
[BL47] but it's free today
[megan] well it was the link for the unlimited with a slight change in the url. try this one for the 2nd one: http://sportvision.meta.nascar.com.edgesuite.net/cup/html/raceview.html?race=2013102&early_entry=true
[BL47] thanks I will
[JWilson47] So where do we start in the race? 23rd?
[BillyR] alright guys.. i gotta go
[megan] nascar.com leaderboard says we finished 11th?
[JWilson47] showing 11th
[BillyR] later guys
[BL47] Thanks megan , that worked for me.
[coolhands] jeeze danica
[JWilson47] See ya
[megan] I'm glad BL47
[jaa 47] so we did finish p11
[jaa 47] nice
[coolhands] 11th still on leaderboard
[coolhands] what happened to the 56 again
[jaa 47] something with the window net
[BL47] I'm still working out all the off season computer bugs and issues so I'll be ready for the Great American Race and beyond
[luckycali] Reuti has to wait out the 2nd race. uugh!
[coolhands] Reuti's car didnt look too good
[jaa 47] yea i wonder if we arent runing triad?
[jaa 47] jtg has been mum
[jdonovan47] it is triad
[jaa 47] on what engine we are using
[jdonovan47] they said it
[jaa 47] ok
[jdonovan47] there is also a picture of a triad guy in their garage stall
[coolhands] it is triad. I think we got more help from TRD after testing to speed up the car. You can see the difference between our speeds and BK racing speeds
[jdonovan47] yea for sure
[jaa 47] must becuase we are way faster than the bk cars
[jdonovan47] Toyota offered JTG D more help from triad to make them resign
[jdonovan47] TRD i mean
[coolhands] Toyota needs to get their act together and expand their engine department
[jaa 47] wonder if one day we will get trd if they expand
[coolhands] Hendrick alone does 10 engines a race and toyota can only do 6?
[jdonovan47] we are next in line so...
[coolhands] I dont think we will make it to the next level without TRD engines. A manufacturer change would be too costly
[luckycali] Keelan Harvick ready to go racing. lol
[jdonovan47] JTG resigned I think for 2 years with Toyota
[JWilson47] Poor Ruety
[coolhands] Hopefully when this contract is up TRD can expand their engine shop
[coolhands] if not they should really look to switch to someone else
[coolhands] Their cars are going to be a lot better this season, the engines need to keep up
[JWilson47] How is everyone feeling about the 500? I think we have a car thats capable of making some noise
[JWilson47] We were up front the whole race, just a bad call on pit stops
[coolhands] I dont now how to feel yet. I don't think we really know what the car can do yet.
[coolhands] I don't think Bobby really pushed it this race. He moved around a few lanes a few times but nothing really crazy
[coolhands] I don't think we will know how good the car really is until 10 to go in the 500
[jdonovan47] if Brian made a 'good' call he would have probably been in that wreck
[BL47] I'll be glued to my seat with 10 to go in the 500 I hope anyway
[megan] you're probably right Donvovan. and I will probably no longer be on my seat with that 10 laps to go
[luckycali] wont get to see the D500. wont be in here. wil have to catch up to you all next week. My sister's grandkid's Christening on Sunday.
[megan] we'll miss ya
[BL47] This "lame duck driver" thing does not seem to hold any water in most cases it seems. Look at Kenseth last year and Harvick this year for example.
[JWilson47] What time does this duel start at?
[megan] hopefully soon
[BL47] the top of the hour is my guess
[jaa 47] is the 19 a toyota?
[JWilson47] i believe so
[JWilson47] but dont take my word on it
[jaa 47] it is
[jaa 47] they arent triad
[jaa 47] 87 isnt triad anymore either
[coolhands] what are they using then, a camry engine lol
[JWilson47] The 19 says its Pro Engineering lol
[megan] here we go!
[JWilson47] 87 says Racing Engines Plus
[JWilson47] man that must suck
[coolhands] wow didnt know it could get worse
[jaa 47] yea triad is only 47,83,93
[coolhands] whats the 26 using?
[jaa 47] trd for this race
[jaa 47] then triad
[coolhands] lucky them
[coolhands] wish they could at least extend us an option for TRD engines for plate races
[JWilson47] So theres only 3 triad teams?
[jaa 47] yes
[coolhands] Evey other manufacturer has one or at most 2 engine makers toyota has 4
[coolhands] Kenseth really has the plate tracks figured out
[JWilson47] I dont get how the transfer spot is 15th, if only 2 cars miss the race
[coolhands] 15th will guarantee you in the race on position. The rest is speeds and past champ
[megan] and the front row
[JWilson47] Who is everyone taking to win?
[jaa 47] kahne
[coolhands] Terry :)
[coolhands] But real choice will be Kenseth
[JWilson47] Terrys looking pretty good
[coolhands] He always pulls off a decent finish at the plate races
[JWilson47] Yeah, he will get the 32 team a top 20 on Sunday
[coolhands] Yeah its crazy
[coolhands] Poor Mike Bliss cant catch a break in anything he drives
[coolhands] I remember back when he was good in JGR Busch cars
[BL47] Bliss is from my area
[BL47] how does the window net come down ... danger
[coolhands] guess it popped out of place
[BL47] Terry P13
[coolhands] Yup holding is own, in the third pack
[BL47] he sounds real calm on the radio
[coolhands] second pack is catching the first
[BL47] like he is semi retired or something
[coolhands] yeah only does the plate races for frankie stoddard
[jaa 47] raceview is working now
[BL47] love the new cameras (cable and banking)
[coolhands] I love this raceview
[BL47] It looks like a good turn out of people at the track today
[jaa 47] 19/52 will miss the 500
[jaa 47] from the standpoint now...not really any dream
[jaa 47] drama
[coolhands] They are both so far off speed that its only fair they dont make it
[JWilson47] Hey guys, who usually has the fastedt pit crew in Nascar?
[JWilson47] This is for fantasy lol
[luckycali] Hi again
[BL47] hi cali
[luckycali] Come on Texas Terry!
[BL47] #5 is looking good
[luckycali] uh oh that dont look too good
[JWilson47] no caution
[jaa 47] if it was the 88
[coolhands] uh no terry too fast
[luckycali] JG gets a ticket. terry gets a ticket
[jaa 47] caution
[BL47] pass through for Terry
[jaa 47] wont matter for 32
[jaa 47] 19 car is -2 laps
[jaa 47] wait....blockbuster still exists?
[luckycali] yea I think they just closed some locations. Something like that.
[jaa 47] none around here
[luckycali] used to work there
[jaa 47] shutup mikey!
[luckycali] efinately need a partner if your think about passing especially up front. Or get hung out to dry
[JWilson47] last lap
[luckycali] Go Kasey ;)
[jaa 47] way hard to pass
[BL47] Kasey broke up the Gibbs cars
[luckycali] Ryan should be good on SPEED, right?
[coolhands] Terry will definitely have past champ, may make it on speed
[jaa 47] 19/52 out
[jaa 47] everyone else in
[jaa 47] 52 was sad to watch so slow
[BL47] thanks jaa 47
[JWilson47] that was a quick one
[jaa 47] np
[jaa 47] fox trying to create fake drama
[coolhands] 52 had no shot at it
[jaa 47] transfer spot nonsense
[jaa 47] haha
[coolhands] been so slow all week
[luckycali] They should do like they did the other night extra cars showed up to try to race. They just let em all in. At the big tracks what's 2 more cars. lol
[luckycali] And they were all on the tiny track the made.
[jaa 47] no room on pit row
[jaa 47] for extra cars
[jaa 47] thats why
[jaa 47] btw the racing with this gen 6 car is awful!
[luckycali] could make room
[jaa 47] i hope the 500 is better
[megan] the first duel was fine. I like it
[jaa 47] first duel was much better
[luckycali] Probably being conservative. First real racing for these guys. They are still trying to learn how to race em
[BL47] Hard to pass , they will need to get out front and block
[JWilson47] See ya guys sunday
[BL47] same here
[luckycali] Wil be wishing I was here.
[megan] starting 23rd
[luckycali] The brothers will race together as Bobby's 20th anniversary season begins. COOL!
[luckycali] Gotta go fix some lunch. See ya later.
[megan] okay. see ya
