[JTG Daugherty Racing] not sure
[megan] Hi :)
[gregg] Hi, Megan
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Megan, please make the rain go away.
[megan] Car better?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] No, but top 15 lap times. Burns says they will keep working on it.
[megan] Okay. Thanks
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Megan, how is the reception at the track? What provider do you have?
[megan] Verizon and it's been horrible
[megan] Billy has at&t I think and he hasn't had as much trouble
[Mickey47] Hey everyone!
[megan] Hi Mickey
[Mickey47] Hey Megan. I can't see who all is in here. No list to the right.
[HGRAY47] Hi Mickey
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Hey Mickey
[Mickey47] Hey Hugh and Todd.
[HGRAY47] Mickey, working tonight or here for the duration?
[Mickey47] Off tonight.
[Mickey47] Is there no longer a list of who is in the chat room?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] It is on the right side still
[HGRAY47] Hard to see the list depending on view size 100%, 50%, etc,
[JTG Daugherty Racing] If you are viewing via RaceSavers, we made the chat window wider
[Mickey47] I found it. I had to slide the window over.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] shhhh
[Mickey47] The 2 about to catch AJ
[BL47] opps sorry
[Mickey47] Sorry. The 20
[BL47] Well I've got peace of mind knowing AJ is driving using both feet on the pedals.
[HunterB] p25. Just what I wanted to see.
[HunterB] Looks like this car was fully prepared for Bobby
[HunterB] See yall next week =)
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Looks like I can start baning people...
[HunterB] Nah dont
[HunterB] You wont have many people coming here otherwise.
[HunterB] Sorry, just frustrated
[JTG Daugherty Racing] bye
[BL47] all 8 of us , this chat is not what it once was
[HGRAY47] The cool people are here
[JTG Daugherty Racing] on purpose
[megan] Well this stinks
[Mickey47] Got your rain poncho megan ?
[megan] Jacket yes but idk that it's helping any more
[BL47] darn it Megan
[megan] Too bad I can't go sit in the motor home this time
[HGRAY47] I will be back in while. Gives me time to unpack and fix some supper. Not Megan's fault. She is our at track reporter
[megan] Ya I've been so helpful lol
[Mickey47] Did Billy forecast this weather?
[BL47] he must have
[BL47] It's Billy's fault
[BL47] Are you at the track Todd ?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Negative, Jenn and Intern Emily are
[BL47] Ah thanks , at least your dry then
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Yes, enjoying a sweet tea.
[BL47] I am glad to see the team doing better as of late
[JTG Daugherty Racing] natural progression, second half should be better than the first half
[BL47] than then
[Mickey47] Brian Neudorff @NASCAR_WXMAN 6s #NASCAR That shower wasn't even the main line of rain, just the opening act. est 60-90 min rain http://twitpic.com/ddnxk2
[Mickey47] Looks like rain and more rain.
[BL47] well that is too bad.
[JD] sorry if this has already been asked todd, but do you know how its looking for next weekend driver wise?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] sorry, was looking at my phone. Bobby and Tad have been in regular communication throughout this whole deal. Bobby will then call Tad on Sunday and let him know if he can race the following week or not. I assume he will call him tonight and let him know about New Hampshire. He was really hurt and is really sore and swolen. Each week he thinks he will be ready to go the following week but it is just taking him a lot longer to heal than he expected.
[JD] gotcha thanks!
[BL47] Thanks for the update Todd. Thanks for asking JD
[JTG Daugherty Racing] The big deal will be fitting into a seat. The next big deal will be rolling into a corner and leaning on his side, hips and ribs. The seats have to be snug against the body, no wiggle room. But when you went through what Bobby did, comfort and wiggle room is the only way he could make it for a full race.
[megan] Any chance you want to email the chat log to me?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] The last thing anyone wants is for the G-Forces of a corner to press his ribs into the seat and undo all of the healing.
[BL47] for sure
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Remind me in the morning and I will scrape the text and send it your way
[megan] Thank you. I appreciate it
[Mickey47] I did a ride along at Atlanta and after 3 laps it made me appreciate what the body of a driver goes through after 400 - 500 miles.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] and nobody bumped you and you didn't run into a wall at 190 mph... He can't risk it.
[Mickey47] Let me make Megan mad. The Denver, NYG game is a pretty good one so far.
[megan] Why assume I'll get mad. *shakes head*
[Mickey47] I know you like to stick to the subject. Racing.
[Mickey47] Just picking on you Megan.
[megan] I know :)
[BL47] weather looks good on Monday 69 deg. and some sun
[megan] Sun would be good
[megan] Okay, I don't want to kill my phone so I'll try to check in a little later
[BL47] sun now would be good. ok
[Mickey47] Cya Megan
[BL47] Mickey , Day off today ?
[Mickey47] Off today. I'm glad. Friday the 13th at work was truly Friday the 13th. We had fires, burnt wiring, burnt motors, burnt bearings. I worked over 25 hours straight
[BL47] wow, sorry to hear that. Glad it's over
[BL47] take Friday the 13th off work next time
[Mickey47] Me too! Cotton and fire do not mix.
[BL47] t shirts with flames
[kkfan4ever1] well more rain
[Mickey47] Kind of like JTGD shirts. lol!
[BL47] Bubba Burger stuff
[Mickey47] We don't make shirts, just the yarn for them.
[Mickey47] We could smell the cotton burning for about 24 hours but couldn't find it. With all the filtration and air circulation to maintain conditions it was hard to locate. It was a slow smoldering burn. No flame. no smoke to hardly see till the damage is done.
[Mickey47] Gildan is the name
[BL47] that's crazy. I bet that has never happened before.
[Mickey47] Yes it's happened before, but we usually find it quickly because it is usually down low to the floor. This was up at the ceiling where we couldn't see it.
[BL47] They should change from cotton to Nomex as it will not burn.
[Mickey47] Specialty fibers is a booming business.
[Mickey47] Hearing if the race resumes tonight it will be shown on ESPN 2.
[Mickey47] I will be back when racing resumes.
[jdonovan 47] whoa... where is everyone?
[HGRAY47] Watching football or NHRA
[jdonovan 47] yea, was there more people beffore the rain delay?
[HGRAY47] maybe some will be back when we race
[jdonovan 47] *if
[HGRAY47] tonight or tomorrow....hope tonight
[megan] Let's go racing already
[HGRAY47] I agree.
[megan] Drivers to the cars...yay
[megan] It's cold...let's go. Good thing I brought Kleenex
[HGRAY47] Hope you got a jacket.
[megan] Ya, but it's not working well
[megan] About time
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Megan, do you have the whole section to yourself?
[megan] Actually it's not too bad, but now there's a fence in the way of my shots since we didn't go all the way back up to our seats
[megan] Too bad meaning, there's a fair amount of people here
[Mickey47] Back on the lead lap.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] -1
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Did not take wave around
[Mickey47] ESPN said AJ took the wave around
[Mickey47] I believe you
[JTG Daugherty Racing] lol, just the 78 and the 36 I believe
[Mickey47] Now we will be on the lead lap.
[Mickey47] Good hustling by AJ.
[bsr29ss] Hello my rain soaked friends
[JTG Daugherty Racing hello bsr
[bsr29ss] Just wanted to say Goodluck to JTG before heading to bed. Our season wrapped up lastnight.. Ended up Finishing 8th in the feature and captured. 8th in the points.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Congrats, something to build on for next season!
[bsr29ss] We had a Heat race winner in our class Win the race upside down on his roof..lol It was a pretty cool sight once we found out he was okay.
[Jabee] well..never drearmed I would see a race....had a 3:00 funeral today....did not get home until 5....and then kept waiting on the rain delay to end...
[Mickey47] Hey Jabee
[Jabee] hey Mickey....
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Glad he was okay, must have been crazy!
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Hey Jabee
[Jabee] they just said AJ back the lead lap...was he the LS?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] yes
[bsr29ss] Not sure if you can view my facebook page or not but there is a link to the video on it. It is facebook/Bsr29ss
[Jabee] trying to decide...do I take a Sunday off in Oct and go to Dega....or Nov and go on a cruise
[JTG Daugherty Racing] BOTH!
[Jabee] I wish I could...but it is a choice...
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Have you ever been on a cruise?
[Mickey47] I'm going to Dega then leaving from there headed to the beach.
[bsr29ss] I have been on a Cruise. and realized quickly I do not have Sea Legs..lol
[Jabee] yup....16 cruises....we love it...
[JTG Daugherty Racing] lol, hard to argue with that!
[Jabee] but Dega was so muc fun last year
[steady_steve] I just cruised back from chicagoland speedway to my nice warm house so I can watch the end of the race on TV - LOL
[JTG Daugherty Racing] It promises to be just as crazy this year too
[Jabee] sat right across from the #47 pit...and watched you guys all day long
[JTG Daugherty Racing] I hope you drove with 100% effort on your way home Steve!
[megan] I vote keep it a night race
[steady_steve] I was temped to spin, but did not. 100% is my new rule too.
[steady_steve] you guys still at the track?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Megan is
[Jabee] what is up with Jeff Gordons hood??
[steady_steve] looks like they're gonna get the whole race in - nice
[JTG Daugherty Racing] has names on it
[megan] Car looks faster
[JTG Daugherty Racing] I think Drive to end hunger pledges
[bsr29ss] megan, they say when you add certain decals..it adds horsepower
[Jabee] ok...just looked like a blob....
[bsr29ss] paint the car black it is an automatic 50 hp gain
[megan] Well it looks like it's going forward better than earlier
[JTG Daugherty Racing] I don't think so, waiting for David Green to tell us.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] .4 better than cars in front. Must be a little better
[jdonovan 47] The driver can't hear what we are hearing can he?
[BL47] So with the analog radio does Brian have to relay info through David
[bsr29ss] can I try something to see if it works.. I want to try and show you the wreck JTG.. https://www.facebook.com/#!/mmethodjr/media_set?set=vb.773262911&
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Yes, that is all he can hear. Driver's have 2 analog channels. Pit crew has those plus digital
[jdonovan 47] So why am I hearing Brian say somethine to David a David repeatt it to AJ? I'm confused
[JTG Daugherty Racing] David always confirms pit communication to driver, just to make sure it was heard.
[jdonovan 47] Ok because it seemed odd
[jdonovan 47] because Brian said David instead of directing the message at AJ
[JTG Daugherty Racing] A new thing you will hear is Brian talking to the crew on this channel. NASCAR took away digital radios for now so they can monitor all analog channels. You will now hear air pressure adj calls to our tire specialist.
[BL47] better for us fans
[JTG Daugherty Racing] At 190+ mph the driver's ear is trained to one voice, the spotter's
[Jabee] why the caution?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] likely debris
[Jabee] uh oh...Joey smoking
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Ah, 51 spin
[Jabee] and the 51 spun
[Jabee] stay away from Joey...he has lost a cylinder
[JTG Daugherty Racing] what happened to 48 on pit road
[bsr29ss] I can't hear myself talk when I am in the car doing 100mph
[bsr29ss] Nascar is what about 900hp?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] 850 ish
[JTG Daugherty Racing] 3200 lbs
[bsr29ss] I think I am push 580'ish at the moment
[JTG Daugherty Racing] 22 needs to get off the track
[bsr29ss] I have been saying that all year long...lol
[HGRAY47] 22 should have used Mobil 1
[bsr29ss] Best Oil I have used believe it or not has been..Joe Gibbs Brand Race Oil..
[HGRAY47] Did the 48 borrow the 78's pit crew this race?
[bsr29ss] nasty cereal..lol
[HGRAY47] These long red flags are never good for the engines. Heat cycle not good.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Wonder if that was the motor...
[Mickey47] Does Swan use Triads?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] yup
[bsr29ss] To see the awsome crash/finish.. I put it on Youtube.. http://youtu.be/5zcHv82bARc
[bsr29ss] nevermind the green and white car..lol
[Mickey47] bsr29ss can you post that link again. I clicked on it and I got booted off the chat.
[megan] Anyone know what the last pit stop time was?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] 14.1
[Mickey47] The 30 over rev'd the engine he said.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] 4-Oct
[bsr29ss] Easy to do Mickey
[BL47] is this your first night race Megan ?
[megan] Nope. I think it's my 6th (cup wise)
[megan] Another caution...oi
[steady_steve] does anyone know what was going on in that GIANT Brandt sponsor tent ouside of turn 4 at the track today? I know they sponsor the 51, but that tent was HUGE...
[megan] 60 years..I think
[JTG Daugherty Racing] This is their debut Sprint Cup Race
[megan] That too
[steady_steve] so just a bug party tent?
[HGRAY47] Their home office is near by so lots of worldwide employees came in for the race
[steady_steve] big party
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Partay!
[steady_steve] got it -
[HGRAY47] Heard an interview with company president today
[bsr29ss] I have to head to bed now..6am comes way to early on Mondays
[JTG Daugherty Racing] night
[bsr29ss] Goodnight and Goodluck JTG
[Mickey47] goodnight bsr29ss
[Mickey47] Chicago not being very kind to the Chasers
[BL47] 18 leading , what a surprise
[Mickey47] Kaboom again
[steady_steve] 22 done blowed up
[Mickey47] You cheat and it always comes back to bite you.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] yay, side by side commercials
[Mickey47] Roush Yates engines having problems
[megan] Well that caution will clear out traffic after the race even more
[JTG Daugherty Racing] good point
[HGRAY47] Yep, should be no traffic
[HGRAY47] Chevy, Ford, Toyota all having engine issues now.
[megan] Is everyone good on fuel or?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] everyone should be good. Might be one or two that stayed out that are pushing it.
[megan] Okay, thanks
[HGRAY47] Might be more in the chat than at the race by the end.
[megan] Maybe lol.
[JD] this sounds very familiar
[JD] i dont know what to do
[megan] 25 more laps...geez
[JTG Daugherty Racing] 18 ans 20 low on fuel...
[megan] Crossing my fingers
[megan] Go matt
[megan] 10 to go!
