[jdonovan 47] ahead*
[jdonovan 47] point is kinda by himself on the track lol.
[AJN] next to get lappped
[AJN] soda cookies!! lol
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Faster than 10 cars in front of him but 48 coming faster
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Long, boring race so far
[derek] got to unload the car got home late last night so not really watching
[megan] I think it's better than yesterday's so far
[AJN] catching mears
[JTG Daugherty Racing] 15 didn't do him any favors, tough to get around him, allowed 48 to get by
[caliphxgirl] lap down
[HughG47] Still better than the REALLY BORING race yesterday.
[JWilson47] Throw a debris caution. This is terrible
[AJN] Jimmie's not running away from Newman
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Short Pit
[AJN] Wait on that caution til we pass the 13 and 15
[jdonovan 47] i enjoyed the entire Nwide race
[jdonovan 47] I prefer this than fake cautions
[derek] we pitted
[AJN] how many laps was that?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] 22
[AJN] what's a typical run 30?
[caliphxgirl] that might've been a bad time to pit #48 right behind :(
[JTG Daugherty Racing] ish, might be high under all green
[AJN] gotcha thanks
[caliphxgirl] Worked out better than I thought. now to get that lap back.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] 88 benefits from caution.
[roll400ex] so is the caution good or bad for bobby?
[AJN] we waving right?
[JD] nascar wouldnt do that on purpose...help the 88 car...never
[roll400ex] hehe JD
[mailbox] Wow!!! There's ALMOST some people there.
[jaa 47] race is empty
[roll400ex] only because Bobby is at the wheel
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Staying out, not waving, all leaders have to pit for that to happen.
[JD] why not get tires?
[AJN] why not stop then if you cant wave?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Pitting
[JD] Brians so smart lol
[JD] read my mind
[caliphxgirl] 48 stayed out so now we pitting.
[caliphxgirl] 11.7 seconds Tony's pit stop
[tobysmom] Are we a lap down?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Yes, 22 on back are down
[jaa 47] yes
[texgal47] Yes I think so..1 lap
[texgal47] It is sooo quiet in here...having trouble posting
[AJN] how close are the guys for position?
[tobysmom] Yes tex, it is very quiet
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Not much action at these big tracks so not much to discuss. We need to get back to a short track
[JWilson47] Is The Glen next week?
[tobysmom] You've got that right. Who is driving next week?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] He is in a bunch of 10 cars
[JWilson47] or Pocono
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Pocono next
[AJN] watkins is in 2 weeks
[JWilson47] Road Courses are some of my favorite tracks to watch. Bobby ran a half a lap at the first one and wont be racing in the second one
[HughG47] Need Emily in the chat to stir up trouble.
[texgal47] having trouble posting here today...keeps bumping me off..LOL
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Are you using bad words? :-)
[jaa 47] caution
[JTG Daugherty Racing] caution
[tobysmom] Burton having trouble?
[AJN] 31 car?
[texgal47] Me? keeps saying runnin long script?
[tobysmom] ooooo wave around?
[JWilson47] Probably to far into a run
[mailbox] texgal47 Then STOP it!!! :-)
[texgal47] Argggg won
[JTG Daugherty Racing] will take wave if it presents itself
[caliphxgirl] Not good for JB
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Tex, may have to reboot.
[tobysmom] Like this......saving fuel?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Saving in case we can wave
[JD] Is this track big enough to do what they do at Pocono, wave then pit
[JD] still stay on lead lap
[texgal47] ok back…keeps bumping me off …..no bad words…..just bumps me
[AJN] wave, then pit?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Don’t think so, pit road is so long
[JTG Daugherty Racing] May have to try it but would prefer quick caution. Leaders stayed out, we will pit.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Cannot wave around
[AJN] 24,22 satayed out
[JWilson47] Danica smoking
[derek] coimg around the first turn it looked like someone was smoking
[tobysmom] What a mess
[JTG Daugherty Racing] 10 has been smoking for several laps
[tobysmom] All quiet from Bobby.....right?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] yep, just riding
[tobysmom] Ok.......the race week before last was so much fun, I was hoping to have the same this week....
[JWilson47] We dont have the engine to keep up at these big tracks
[JWilson47] next week will be boring to at Pocono
[JWilson47] and bobby wont be in a car the week after pocono
[JWilson47] so us bobby fans are in a rough stretch lol
[AJN] soon to pit?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Within 5 laps I would think
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Need caution now otherwise pitting in 4 laps
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Just not going to get a yellow
[caliphxgirl] next time by...maybe..watching 32
[JTG Daugherty Racing] YES!!!!
[JTG Daugherty Racing] cUTION
[caliphxgirl] but low fuel
[tobysmom] The soda cookie commercial brought us good luck
[JD] missed lucky dog
[tobysmom] very low fuel?
[caliphxgirl] come on Jamie please pit
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Missed LD by one spot… :(
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Yes, low fuel
[caliphxgirl] think we waved
[JTG Daugherty Racing] No, leaders pit first
[caliphxgirl] come on gas tank be good
[caliphxgirl] nope cant wave. Darn
[caliphxgirl] have to come in and top of gas
[caliphxgirl] restart 32nd last car 1 lap down
[caliphxgirl] bobby needs a bunge cord next in 8)
[caliphxgirl] come on boys, dont let JJ do that
[caliphxgirl] Bobby yellin about transmission. this is getting icky in a hurry
[derek] oh no
[tobysmom] Holding it with hand to keep in gear?
[derek] ruti was having that same problem
[JTG Daugherty Racing] yes, popping out of place, needs strap on next stop to hold it.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Wow, those stands are empty
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Not too uncommon, during any given race you will find a car with the shifter strapped.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Drivers nowadays don't use the clutch to shift, tht just jam it into gear, the transmissions are pretty tough
[AJN] Didn't know they don't clutch
[AJN] we gonna pit soon?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] 2 laps
[JTG Daugherty Racing] right side tires and fuel only
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Bobby said he can work with shifter as is
[JWilson47] Does Newman have to pit?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] I think he is okay, might be close
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Bobby pitted, said he can't hold gear now
[roll400ex] yall think johnson will catch him?
[roll400ex] im hoping not
[HughG47] I hope not
[roll400ex] any one but kyle busch or jimmie
[roll400ex] has newman won at indy?
[jaa 47] what position is bobby in?
[HughG47] do not think he has won
[roll400ex] 5 car is pretty quick now
