Tobysmom-Good morning! Are we practicing or staying in the garage?
Respuchia-how YOU doing?
megan-going out I think, I see one lap done on the board
megan-we'll be fine
Respuchia-we need to be good... not fine... lol
Tobysmom-Oh yes, we'll be fine!
Tobysmom-Fine as in "wonderful"
Tobysmom-I'm grading papers and watching practice. It's about 40 degrees outside and it's very cozy for me
Respuchia-did they only run the 1 lap or are they out making more laps? I see them posted last on SPEED
megan-4 laps so far...just plain 'ol last
roll400ex-What's the latest with the car?
Respuchia-yeah, wish it were first
megan-yes, but they may not be pushing it, just making sure everything works...
Respuchia-that what they been doing all week?
Respuchia-they looked really good in the twins
Respuchia-just behind a dang gum lap!
megan-http://bit.ly/zo5UCO we printed the names of 300+ Kroger employees that are active duty or retired service members
lc-Fastest lap is 198.921 - 7 laps. #47 185.246 - 4 laps, 34th. -13.675
Respuchia-but things are fine... as in wonderful
lc-These NAPA commercials gag me!
Respuchia-how about that nasty chocolate fountain?
megan-that looks like fun
Respuchia-if you were the first one to use it maybe... you seen the ppl at golden corral? i wouldnt be surprised to see them using it on their mashed taters
batgrrl-[i]how does Bobby sound on the radio?
batgrrl-[i]I guess I was wondering how he sounded during the dual race
Respuchia-he sounded fine, wonderful
lc-Didn't here much in the dual - sound was too low
batgrrl-[i]btw, I might be late tomorrow. we got potluck after church and I'm bringing something...
megan-there were a couple times when he was like a half a lap back he seemed slightly frustrated that he was that far back, but other than that he did sound like it was alright
megan-and no worries. I may be late to if we do our traditional daytona 500 breakfast
lc-Sure wish we had the scanner for practices. Learn a lot then. I always listen at the track
batgrrl-[i]from here it sounds like he feels much better with Todd than when Frank was the cc
megan-JTG Daugherty Racing Fan Page Bobby spent yesterday and this morning's practice making laps, mostly single car, to work on fuel injection mapping. Another item on today's agenda was to make sure radios and helmet electronics were in sync. All good, keeping the car and driver safe and prepared for tomorrow.
Respuchia-it is good to know that Harvick, Busch, etc. need practice and we don't. we should be heading to the front early tomorrow
batgrrl-[i]from what I've heard, Bobby seems to have a lot of confidence this year
Respuchia-what have you heard? spill
batgrrl-[i]just from the facebook posts
Respuchia-does he post or does someone else?
lc-HHave you read his quotes and deen his interview?
lc-Breaking Limits posts
lc-What I meant to type is: Have you actually read his quotes and seen his interview?
Respuchia-I spent the last two months in Cambodia, so I had very limited access to the electronic/virtual world.
megan-Cambodia huh. that sounds fascinating
Respuchia-I was on a reserve... working to reverse the deforestation problems... so it wasn't posh at all.
megan-that sounds like fun though
Respuchia-not as fun as the chocolate fountain at GC, but it was cool to experience
47forever-so hows our car?
Respuchia-betther than Harvicks, Bayne's & Busch's, they needed practice and we don't
Respuchia-how many sets of tires do we have for the race?
megan-ummmm, no idea actually
lc-Tires, from Jayski Up to 10 sets for this practice and race
lc-Up to ten sets through Friday.
megan-thanks for the update on the tires Lea
batgrrl-[i]nice interview with Terry
47forever-terry got some tv time :O
lc-For those that haven't blocked me - I haven't meant for my posts to be ugly. Bobby knows I am behind him and the #47 team with all my heart !! I hope that Sunday's race will be awesome for them!! I can feel that way without having to ignore what I've read, heard and seen. It makes it even sweeter to acknowledge stuff and then have things go well - kinda makes me feel I have been on the journey with them.
batgrrl-[i]we've only been quiet
megan-that's a good post...it's weird how people decide to block people for the strangest things....
batgrrl-[i]that is a cool camera shot
Tobysmom-I haven't blocked anyone yet this year :)
Tobysmom-The only time I do is during a race with the obvious negative nellys
batgrrl-[i]switched over to espn to watch the nationwide race
batgrrl-[i]this should be interesting because Austin Dillon is driving the 3
batgrrl-[i]and there's Brad
batgrrl-[i]you know, I do think it's been long enough to being the 3 back
47forever-he is a messy writer
megan-oh good it's not just me thinking that
47forever-i could barely understand a thing he wrote
47forever-mmmmm... frozen reese's cups
47forever-it brings out a little more flavor
megan-alright, if you say so
47forever-also you get a good crunch.
megan-ya, that just doesn't sound that appealing to me, but hey whatever works for you
47forever-it brings out a little more salty from the PB and a little more sweet from the chocolate.
megan-hurts my teeth just thinking about it...I believe you though
megan-alright on with the race
47forever-i put the reeses away. now time for some ice cream lol
Tobysmom-I am NOT a Kurt Busch fan.....is it ok to cheer against him?
47forever-yeah yeah yeah... shut up kurt and clean ur mouth. and ur bro too
megan-as long as you can keep it decently clean, go ahead...
47forever-yes it is.
batgrrl-[i]my sister when she first started watching nascar she did follow Kyle. that is until he showed his true colors...
lc-Seems every time a open my mouth about somebody I can't stand, it brings bad luck for someome I do like. And, if I pull for somebody I like they don't do well... It is so hard to keep my mouth shut though
HughG47-Hopefully there will be more cars left than trucks last night
47forever-and word of advice megan. if i do get into nascar dont listen to my radio as much cause when i get mad, i get mad and swear a little. and if the same person gives me trouble the whole race theyll get some trouble back.
47forever-its the way i work
megan-lol. okay. I'll try to remember that
megan-and I understand what you are saying Lea
47forever-uh oh. Brad is arguing
megan-I know...I have no idea what anyone just said
HughG47-Love Brad's passion for the sport
batgrrl-[i]actually I think it doesn't matter if you're a champion or not. If you do what Kurt did or even worse, you won't be hired
Tobysmom-WOW! I love Brad!
lc-This is great. These guys are fired up!
batgrrl-[i]okay, the leaderboard is changing up. just need to add the nationwide logo to the top --->
lc-Hopefully the usual pattern of wrecks decreasing from CWTS to NNS to NSCS will be the case today and tomorrow
47forever-I think NNS will be as far as the 3 goes
HughG47-Hope so lc.
47forever-Austin was so cute when he was a little baby!
lc-47, why don't you think it will go up with Austin?
lc-Yep Pop Pop, be sure to to teach the boys to be big old bullys - just like you and Happy
47forever-because Childress said when Dale died there will be no no. 3 in NSCS as long as im alive im pretty sure
lc-47,didn't know that. Wasn't a big #3 fan (RCR) and even less now. For now the only one of the bunch I can even manage to look at is Ty, lol.
lc-Well, now they will win:(
47forever-im not a big rcr fan either but my step-dad is and he told me that sooo ya
megan-this is taking forever
HughG47-Bob Pockrass is saying 70% chc of rain tomorrow
batgrrl-[i]it always takes forever before the first race...
47forever-time for the eating machine to start eating :) im hungry
megan-you do eat a lot lol.
Tobysmom-Noooooo no rain
batgrrl-[i]they said racebuddy will be up. apparently it's not up yet
lc-Wonder if my Trackpass scanner is on?
47forever-im 2" shorter than bobby
batgrrl-[i]I would think for now 47forever ;)
batgrrl-[i]okay, looks like it's up now
HughG47-there is a free scanner on a link on NASCAR.com under the Nationwide area for the NW series.
batgrrl-[i]it's not free HughG47 :(
batgrrl-[i]you get a 14 day free trial
HughG47-here is the link to the free scanner http://www.nascar.com/nationwide-series/trackpass/app/
HughG47-I used it last year also for free. CUP NOT free
batgrrl-[i]and when you click on that
batgrrl-[i]and choose your driver
batgrrl-[i]then it tells you that you get a 14 day free trial
HughG47-strange. Mine is free. Make sure not going into regular trackpass but this nationwide link
batgrrl-[i]well it works now. when I tried it before it had the 14 day free trial thingy
HughG47-glad you got it
batgrrl-[i]because we're watching the race :)
47forever-jr is fast!
megan-appears that way..
batgrrl-[i]that paint scheme looks a whole lot like Bobby's for tomorrow
batgrrl-[i]especially on the side
47forever-except no Kroger
batgrrl-[i]I hope the scanner's free tomorrow
batgrrl-[i]that looked like a traffing jam just waiting to happen...
megan-gotta love traffic
batgrrl-[i]that was close
batgrrl-[i]said something about the 88
megan-Danica, Danica, Danica....*sigh*
batgrrl-[i]the toe is out on that tire
batgrrl-[i]not tire, but wheel
kkay-I'd like her a lot better if they'd talk about her less!
megan-ya, sometimes less is more..they haven't figured that out yet
batgrrl-[i]that might be a rookie mistake
batgrrl-[i]actually, I think it was more Kyle's fault
megan-the 23 just snuck by
lc-Robert Richardson #23 is from McKinney Tx - just a little NE of me. Now he lives up the road in Denton. James Buescher #31 is from Plano Tx - tiny bit east of me
batgrrl-[i]lc you in Carrollton?
batgrrl-[i]cool. my sister lives there
lc-Is she a race fan?
batgrrl-[i]I live just east of DFW
lc-I've lived in NW Dallas, Irving and Carrollton
47forever-shes got quite the mouth on her
batgrrl-[i]you going to TMS this year?
batgrrl-[i]I'm gonna try to get out there for the april race
lc-Did you go to school around here?
batgrrl-[i]graduated from TCHS, 2nd graduating class
47forever-kasey pushing jr
lc-Shut the door, haha. My oldest son's class was the last to graduate from Lewisville, before TCHS opened
batgrrl-[i]never went to Marcus or Lewisville. we moved up to the area the year after TCHS opened
lc-It is small... We've lived here for 37 yrs
batgrrl-[i]listening to the scanners
batgrrl-[i]we moved back here in 1987
megan-yup...but still stuck with commercials
batgrrl-[i]pits are open
lc-Sorry everybody, should have taken our conversation elsewhere! Batgirl sent me a PM and I lost it before I could reply and couldn't get to it again
megan-ummm not much else was going on so..
kkay-I think chatting about anything is ok here today! Pretty quiet!
lc-Thanks for the pass;)
megan-40 to go
batgrrl-[i]Trevor back on the lead lap?
Tobysmom-If a caution is thrown
batgrrl-[i]like yesterday, it's good to see someone like Mike Wallace racing again
batgrrl-[i]love that Ward Burton got a top 10 finish :)
megan-Kenny Wallace is doing fairly well today
batgrrl-[i]it's wierd to see the yellow stripe on the 3...
megan-ya, a little
batgrrl-[i]and Trevor is back on the lead lap
47forever-omg it will finally let me type :O
47forever-i had to restart internet explorer
batgrrl-[i]with Kenny that is
kkay-You probably talked about this before I got here, but why isn't the leader board working?
batgrrl-[i]have no idea
kkay-ok, maybe it's a nationwide thing
47forever-the 11 looks horrible
batgrrl-[i]sounds like there's a big wreck
batgrrl-[i]kinda reminds me of last night...
batgrrl-[i]now *that* was crazy...
lc-So much for thinking NNS would be much calmer...
batgrrl-[i]looks like they're not gonna red flag it
47forever-jr got lucky
batgrrl-[i]there were two that barely missed each other at the end
megan-those cars are everywhere...wow..
batgrrl-[i]and the 31...
lc-After this and (especially) last night - I'm kind of worried about having to sit in a much lower row, at TMS this yr
47forever-i would like curtains made of pizza
batgrrl-[i]last year I was right behind the flagstand :)
batgrrl-[i]that was really cool
batgrrl-[i]thought so if they're fixing the safer barrier
lc-think we should record the program, after the program following the race tomorrow - just in case?
megan-probably not a bad idea
kkay-megan did you get your cd out?
batgrrl-[i]just like last night
47forever-well... kasey is still in it
megan-he barely made it out I think...
lc-Yeah for KK!!
megan-i think so
47forever-dang now im in the mood for oreos. good thing i have some here
batgrrl-[i]and another wreck
batgrrl-[i]lets see who makes it to the end...
batgrrl-[i]and dillon ended 4th
megan-9th for Kasey
batgrrl-[i]that was really crazy
batgrrl-[i]just like last night
lc-Wtg plano tx!! Yes, James!!
kkay-Talk to you tomorrow!! Can't wait!
47forever-talk to all of u probably tomorrow
batgrrl-[i]and more of the regulars will show, too
batgrrl-[i]I bet tomorrow will be just as crazy
batgrrl-[i]at least we had only one GWC...
roll400ex-Wild ending huh
batgrrl-[i]about as bad as last night
roll400ex-1st win for him right?
batgrrl-[i]for me, he's local :)
roll400ex-Be awesome if they ending the weekend with another surprise winner tommorow
roll400ex-Hopefully it will be 47 car hehe
megan-crossing my fingers
roll400ex-What's your opinion on the caution coming out there? Seemed a little later than should have been but guess it doesn't matter
megan-just would've been another messy restart, so i think they thought it was best to just let it go...
roll400ex-Well I will talk to ya tomorrow, have a good one
megan-ok, you too
batgrrl-[i]okay, I'm heading. wanna get ready for church tomorrow (I lead the bible study...), and get the stuff together for the potluck...
megan-okay, have fun
