[HughG47] Hi megan
[Jabee] what time is the race??
[HughG47] 7:44EST green
[megan] I think it should start in about an hour
[caligirl] Hey All!
[megan] and that was weird
[caligirl] Good Luck to Kasey tonight, megan.
[megan] crossing my fingers
[megan] and good luck to your drivers
[caligirl] Thanks. Clint's already locked in for me. Pulling for Kurt and Truex with that bad wrist.
[caligirl] Congrats to Jimmie and the birth of a 2nd daughter. :)
[megan] lots of girls this year
[caligirl] Football for reals tomorrow...yeay!
[megan] bleh. enjoy
[caligirl] Sorry just noticed you're the only one talking. I know you dont like Football
[megan] lol. that's alright. we all have our likes and dislikes
[megan] they actually all picked different drivers? O_o
[Tobysmom] Hello race fans!
[Tobysmom] Forgive me for being slightly "bitter", but tonight I would love to see Jeff Gordon win.
[megan] I'd be okay with him winning
[Tobysmom] Any word on how Bobby is feeling?
[caligirl] Why bitter? that would be a very popular win
[Tobysmom] bitter because of Bobby's situation......
[caligirl] According to Tad Bobby was still too sore and too swollen to try tonight. using lasers and accupuncure and trying hard for Chicago
[Tobysmom] Hope I get to watch him race again......
[megan] I'm sure you will
[caligirl] Think Tad is planning on Bobby racing a few more races this year.
[Tobysmom] I hope you are right megan. Ok enough of feeling sad......let's go racing
[megan] yes, let's go racing!
[Tobysmom] And cali
[HughG47] Yes, ready for racing
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Bobby will be back in the car when he is ready
[caligirl] I've been pretty bummed too. But want Bobby to heal up good.
[JD] JTG, I've always wondered, do spotters stick with teams or drivers usually?
[caligirl] Bobby said earlier this week.....“I am feeling a lot better, but I don’t want to put the race team in any compromising position this weekend,” said Bobby Labonte. “It just makes more sense to focus on my rehab one more week to ensure that I’m ready to go at Chicago (Chicagoland Speedway) with no issues. I plan to be back with the team then and back behind the wheel.”
[JTG Daugherty Racing] usually driver specific, but not always. tad was a spotter until about 4 years ago
[kkfan4ever1] happy raceday or night
[kkfan4ever1] hello there megan
[HughG47] weather a lot better than the Hot/Humid at ATL last week
[megan] hi. good to see ya. hoping Kasey can get himself in the top 10
[HughG47] I also hope KK gets in top 10
[caligirl] Go 56, 78, 15
[kkfan4ever1] thanks megan praying that he does
[kkfan4ever1] thanks Hugh
[Tobysmom] Is raceview audio not running everyone?
[Jabee] Love to see Jeff up front....hope he can make the chase
[caligirl] AJ-Dont know how we made the car this bad.
[Tobysmom] cali....tks for posting....I can't get my audio to work
[caligirl] I'll try. Sometimes I dont make out what they say quick enough to copy it. lol
[Tobysmom] I can launch the page, it just won't let me scroll down to Aj's channel
[Tobysmom] Oh no.....soda cookies
[Jabee] did you see the "Smoke-mobile"...
[Tobysmom] Yes....pretty cool
[Jabee] Tony has special scooter to get around
[Tobysmom] This room is pretty quiet tonight.....
[megan] so it is
[caligirl] alot more people than last week. That was tough.
[Tobysmom] I couldn't do it last week
[megan] understandable, I think
[Tobysmom] tks megan
[HughG47] I was not online last week....at the race.
[megan] did you get pics up? I thought you said you did, but I couldn't find them?
[HughG47] In my FB albums
[megan] hmm okay. I'll check later
[caligirl] Wont be on next Sunday. Driving up to Sacramento.
[megan] I keep hoping I won't be in here either, but.... and safe travels
[derek] guess nows a good time to say hiiiii
[megan] lol. hi derek
[derek] hi megan
[caligirl] AJ asking for lap times. Says tryin to work some lines. Also got a bit of cheerleading just a bit ago.
[caligirl] Hi Derek
[Jabee Go Jeff] caution for debris...
[HughG47] good for us
[caligirl] Sounds like AJ's biggest complaint is chattering and cant figure out the front end. But still on lead lap. Got more cheerleading.
[derek] so many commericals
[caligirl] sorry been away. Haven't been listening.
[caligirl] last race for Stremme in the 30. He didn't even know he was getting ousted and he's a minority owner.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] He is no longer a minority owner
[JD] The owner didnt tell him too much about it either
[caligirl] I was wondering how that would've worked. lol
[JD] Its funny how as soon as a team says the driver is leaving the team they start to run better.
[JD] Newman won
[JD] Montoya ran good
[JD] Burton now
[caligirl] I wonder if Jimmie wished he'd stayed home with his new baby.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] wow, Gordon!
[caligirl] Uh oh Jeff
[Jabee Go Jeff] bummer...
[jaa 47] hey all
[HughG47] hi j 47
[jaa 47] long time since i have been in here
[Jabee Go Jeff] loose front wheel....Jeff is flying faster than the leaders....not sure he can get a lap back
[jaa 47] looks like AJ is doing well
[jaa 47] so whats the plan for bobby for next season? anyone hear anything???
[HughG47] I am just wanting BL to get well and back some this season at this point.
[caligirl] jaa 47 nothing heard yet.
[caligirl] Hi Tony. :}
[Tobysmom] Miss him too
[caligirl] I almost cried the other day. It was good to see him. but he was so sad, it made it sad to watch and like he was missing a best friend or something. He mentioned Bobby a couple times.
[jaa 47] Bobby should get a ride for next season....just don't know the quality of the ride he will get
[jaa 47] it won't be with a top team, but maybe BK racing or somethnig
[Tobysmom] Cali.....that has been the dark cloud for me......no Bobby, no Tony......it's like losing a friend. I hope that Bobby has a ride next year.....
[Tobysmom] great for Gordon
[jaa 47] i really wonder why stremme is getting the boot from the 30?
[jaa 47] considering he is partial owner
[Jabee Go Jeff] Wow...Jeff goes from two laps down to getting the lucky dog...
[caligirl] I kinda call Bobby a "after Homestead" Silly Season driver.Which is like the 2nd part of silly season. I hope not, but it may come down to after teams hand out pink slips the Monday after.
[HughG47] 42 speeding
[caligirl] But I hope I'm wrong and he has something before then.
[jaa 47] bobby's only saving grace is his champions provissional
[JTG Daugherty Racing] jaa, he is no longer part owner, Brandon Swann bought the remainder of the team a while ago.
[JD] Bobby is way better than Reutimann, Kvapil, Mears etc.
[caligirl] Thanks jtgd
[jaa 47] gotya
[jaa 47] thanks
[caligirl] Front Row and BK still have to decide what's up.
[jaa 47] those are options...id take bk racing
[JD] I dont know which one is better honestly
[JD] Bk has shown some good speed at certain tracks
[JD] but so has front row
[JD] Front row p24 and 25 right now
[jaa 47] i guess with no bobby is sort of fizzled out in here
[megan] appears that way
[jaa 47] aj really has no fan base...so o well
[JD] I think I saw a solid 4 or 5 on the fanpage
[jaa 47] lol
[jaa 47] aj is doing well so i cant really knock him
[Tobysmom] just hate the way it all fell into place
[JD] Was AJ just mad at Joe N?
[jaa 47] yup...i mean everyone with half a brain cell knew it was a competition
[jaa 47] between bobby and aj
[JD] Well apparently Brad D doesnt have half a brain cell
[jaa 47] the writing was on the wall
[jaa 47] not really a big deal anymore
[Jabee Go Jeff] aj just got a huge break
[Jabee Go Jeff] Jeff too...smart not to pit and pull through
[HughG47] bad luck for KK...lap down
[JD] I think the biggest difference between Bobby and AJ this year is luck! Jeez, AJ is one lucky dude
[jaa 47] part of it for sure
[Jabee Go Jeff] Jef just passed AJ....
[jaa 47] but aj has been more consistent than bobby
[jaa 47] you cant argue that
[Tobysmom] time will tell
[Jabee Go Jeff] AJ has started far better in his races....and better starting positions help....but tonight he has had a heck of a race...starting in 34th and now flirting with a top 10
[JD] Cant be too consistent with bad luck
[jaa 47] i think bobby was just to conservative
[Tobysmom] DeLana Harvick @DeLanaHarvick 28s 22 bout wrecked the 47 in front of us
[JD] Example: Bristol, he wasnt conservative but just crap luck
[Tobysmom] DRIVER QUOTE FOR THE DAY.....“I've admitted there's been times when I've lacked in confidence when qualifying poorly. I've lacked in confidence many times throughout my career, but that's because the car speaks to you. If you go through, let's say three weeks in a row, where the car is not speaking to you, you're not getting the speed out of it, things aren't going well, I question everything. I question our setups, I question my driving, I'll question tires, engines, everything. That's just normal for me, and I would say most people. “When that green flag drops, if that car sticks in turns, stops, then there's nobody that's going to have more confidence than me. Same with my team.’’........JEFF GORDON RESPONDING TO DARRELL WALTRIP'S COMMENTS
[caligirl] Got to admit was kinda hopin for a bit more beatin n bangin. But race not over.
[Tobysmom] Me too cali
[Jabee Go Jeff] and now...Jeff is racing againg MWR car to be sure he is in the chase.
[caligirl] Go Ryan
[caligirl] Go Truex
[Jabee Go Jeff] Caution...for Bowyer
[Jabee Go Jeff] Menard to the lead????
[Jabee Go Jeff] Menard....
[caligirl] Paul just made his "maybe ;)" new teammate mad
[Tobysmom] This is going to be CRAZY
[Tobysmom] here comes kubu
[Tobysmom] Where did the 47 finish?
[caligirl] Kurt is saying he's in
[jaa 47] 15
[Tobysmom] Have a great week everyone......
[caligirl] Bobby couldn't race....at least a bike rider won
[JD] That was so intentional by Bowyer
[jaa 47] absolutely
[jaa 47] only chance to get 56 in
[JD] Newman should go punch him:)
[caligirl] yeay Truex is in
[Tobysmom] na....that wouldn't solve anything
[JD] So should Gordon because that spin put him and Newman out
[jaa 47] classy move ha
[JD] I would(:
[JD] Id be so mad
[caligirl] Joey's in.
[JD] I shouldnt be a driver lol
[Jabee Go Jeff] sad that Jeff is not in...but I am happy Joey made it...
[HughG47] Great run again this week by AJ and 47 team
[caligirl] wont be here next sunday. Have a good race and wil hope and pray Bobby is back.
[derek] kaseys in
[JD] Hopefully the hot rod from Atlanta goes to Chicago
[caligirl] greg is in
[derek] well sorry so quiet goodnight everyone see ya nxt week have a good week
[caligirl] Bye Derek
[kkfan4ever1] night everyonr
[caligirl] megan, I bought new shoes this week and I would up with Kasey's Puma brand shoes. LOL
[megan] lol. cool
[caligirl] kinda crazy this year. Clint is in, Jeff is not. Carl is in Tony is not. Joey is in, Denny is not.
[megan] definitely a mix
[caligirl] Both Busch Brothers in
[HughG47] Guess I am okay with chase mix. I think 99 should have been black flagged based on similar Black Flag for 48 earlier in year.
[caligirl] What is the hat with the gold stripes different drivers have them?
[HughG47] megan, hope you come up with some tickets for Chic.
[HughG47] No more live NASCAR races for me this year.
[megan] not sure about the hats...is it just the drivers in the chase with them? I hope I get some too, but I think I'll live if I don't
[caligirl] Todd, do you know when the cars roll out to Chicago. If Bobby needs support or some bracing in the seat would it be at the shop or track?
[caligirl] Reigning CUP Champ misses the Chase. Wow
[HughG47] Everyone have a nice week.
[megan] back to you Hugh
[caligirl] Its only 8:30 here, now what.I'm so used to flipping on Nascar Victory Lane after a race. uugh.
[megan] ya, stinks that there isn't that. very strange, too
[caligirl] Guess I'll head out. You all have a great Sunday. And hope you'll think of me next week watch the race. :p
[megan] will do. travel safely and have a good day tomorrow and a good week
