[jaa 47] hru?
[jaa 47] how are you
[megan] ah. I'm doing alright. yourself?
[jaa 47] ok...see what today brings...probably a 25th place run
[jaa 47] one thing i have noticed
[jaa 47] 47 has improved
[jaa 47] they are now better than all the crappy teams
[jaa 47] but
[jaa 47] not good enough to out race the big teams
[jaa 47] of course
[jaa 47] they need to go to 2 cars
[jaa 47] i know its a $$ thing
[jaa 47] but...in order to take the next jump
[megan] I agree. they need another car and I'm sure they will as soon as they can
[jaa 47] yea..but you can only run a 1 car operation for so long
[jaa 47] plus they are on their own too...no outside support
[megan] ya no outside help is a big hindrence. I'm sure they have a plan, but just haven't been able to act on it, because of that.
[jaa 47] in 2 races ive seen an improvement...im optimistic
[jaa 47] i mean im happy with 20-25 place runs
[jaa 47] top 20 is a plus
[jaa 47] depends on the track...like bristol/martinsville top 20 i expect
[jaa 47] but 1.5 mile track they will struggle
[megan] oh yes there has definitely been improvement. 1.5 mile tracks are the biggest struggle, but I expect them to get better as the year progresses. Not expecting too much out of this particular race
[jaa 47] agreed
[megan] hey Donovan
[megan] how have you been
[megan] ready for some racing?
[batgrrl] of course :)
[batgrrl] wait, I thought we had Triad instead of TRD
[megan] I think we do, but it was easier to group us with TRD instead of separating them
[batgrrl] if the TRD engines went out and we kept going then they'd have to separate us
[batgrrl] where are we starting?
[batgrrl] I heard there were some issues in the past few days. are we okay now?
[megan] I believe the vibration they had has been fixed when they changed the drive shaft(I believe that's what they changed), but the looseness of the car still seems to be a bit of a problem. other than that I don't know of any other issues
[megan] hey Derek
[derek] how is everyone today
[megan] I'm alright. ready for racing. you?
[derek] yes ready for raceing
[batgrrl] just saw Bobby in that nickle commercial
[megan] yes, nice to see him in them
[megan] wow interupt much
[derek] almost time for raceing
[derek] why is bobby always by him self?
[batgrrl] she did good
[jaa 47] i dont think his wife travels to all the races
[47forever] Who's ready to go racing?
[LuckyCali] Thank you Marie. I love The Osmonds.
[derek] thanks jaa47
[pgwarrior] lets go blab and jtg
[jaa 47] new raceview uhhhhioef2ff4vijr
[jaa 47] thats how i feel ha
[jaa 47] so frustrating
[LuckyCali] Go Bobby, Reuti, Denny, Brad..my picks for today. Picked Brad so he'll be sure to have a check ready to recarpet the hotel..hahah. And Denny just to see what woudl happen when Nascar has to hand him a check and trophy knowing Denny won't pay a dime of it back.
[47forever] Start your engines!!!!
[derek] nice to see denny win after what is going on but still number one bobby
[Cindy] Ready for a great race! Did they get the car settled in?
[BL47] Get out and grill everyone
[derek] wonderful weather here today
[pgwarrior] anybody get bobby on the radio yet?
[batgrrl] not yet
[pgwarrior] gotta love raceview.....everybody but
[47forever] 63 degrees where I'm at. Perfect temperature.
[derek] 56 here
[jaa 47] raceview POS
[Cindy] He's up
[batgrrl] don't hear anything yet
[batgrrl] there it goes
[jaa 47] Wow
[LuckyCali] LOL did you see Bobby at Driver Intros. His back was to the camera, but he was laughin and flingin his arms all around and looked in a good mood.
[jaa 47] Race view just crashed my MacBook
[jaa 47] such bs
[batgrrl] he's talking about something's up with the 78 and the trackbar
[batgrrl] the 78 is right in front of Bobby
[batgrrl] pitting around 42 or 43
[BL47] jaa 47 , are you updated on flash
[jaa 47] Yup
[jaa 47] Flash updated 8gb ram
[jaa 47] Powerful computer it's just so poorly written code
[batgrrl] "don't know what we got here"
[batgrrl] Bobby's thanking the pit crew
[mailbox] Afternoon all, how are we today?
[jaa 47] Gonna try to run in google chrome and not safari
[batgrrl] good Mailbox
[HunterB] Good afternoon guys. I can't get over how nice looking this #47 scheme looks
[derek] jeff hamond always gets the best seats
[megan] it is pretty cool
[kkay] I'm on chrome on my iPad and its logged me out twice in 10 minutes
[batgrrl] our regular kingsford scheme?
[JWilson47] hey guys
[JWilson47] here we go
[JWilson47] Green green green
[megan] let's go Bobby!
[mailbox] I thought that was the new vette
[HunterB] Yep our regular Kingsford scheme for this season
[fan447] only ran 77 laps during all 4 practices combined... most teams ran at least twice that number. If the car isn't fast, which it doesn't appear to be based on practice times, I would like to understand why so few laps in practice.
[LuckyCali] where are the bumps the drivers have been feeling?
[batgrrl] He had a major vibration
[jaa 47] Crashed my CPU again
[JWilson47] p 27
[batgrrl] dang jaa47
[JWilson47] the gyro cam is awesome
[jaa 47] It's the virtual video that's crashing it
[jaa 47] P28
[JWilson47] P 28
[JWilson47] Where did we finish here last year?
[mailbox] Is he saying anything?
[batgrrl] he's been quiet
[Cindy] very quiet.....thought something was wrong with my connection......
[batgrrl] all I hear is DG
[derek] yay kasey kahne
[JWilson47] p 29
[megan] c'mon Bobby
[jaa 47] Wow crashed it again
[jaa 47] This is just ridiculous
[Cindy] everyone is sliding around according to dg
[megan] time to give up
[JWilson47] p 28
[batgrrl] loose in, tight in the middle, loose off
[batgrrl] tv time
[LuckyCali] Is there a competition caution?
[megan] stay away from Bayne, he has been trouble
[BL47] many drivers complaining about loose
[AJN] is bobby loose too?
[JWilson47] A lot of drivers dropping back
[derek] awh danica got lapped
[JWilson47] gonna be a wreck
[BL47] AJN yes
[mailbox] AJN Loose in tight middle loose off
[Doug] bobby always loose on 1.5s, so hes used to it
[mailbox] 1L at 33rd
[jaa 47] Need a caution
[derek] yes we do
[jaa 47] This gen 6 car blows
[batgrrl] the grip on the track was washed away yesterday
[mailbox] Dont let nascar hear that or theyll fine you.
[batgrrl] that's why everyone's slipping and sliding
[JWilson47] Yeah i hate the gen 6
[jaa 47] Haha
[LuckyCali] 1st time for this car at thsi size track.
[derek] the gen 5 was better
[AJN] its not any worse than the cot
[derek] i miss the old cot with the fin
[BL47] Gen 6 looks good
[pgwarrior] need a caution
[AJN] the way i see it is this car doesn't race any worse the the cot and it looke WAY better
[batgrrl] 10 away from pitting
[batgrrl] leader is two back
[derek] r we still LL
[mailbox] So far.
[pgwarrior] for a second
[mailbox] 30th 1L
[BillyR] Hi guys
[mailbox] Hey Billy
[JWilson47] About to be lapped
[BillyR] Whats Bobby saying about the car
[mailbox] Got him
[batgrrl] he's still quiet
[pgwarrior] before the first pit stop...bout the same as last year.
[derek] early in the race...
[pgwarrior] at least it's not the COT....maybe we can find some speed
[BillyR] Just hope we get a caution
[AJN] the 5 is good today
[mailbox] Casey Mears 1L. No longer LD
[batgrrl] 5 away
[BillyR] Will go 2 down with a stop maybe
[mailbox] Once everybody cycles thru it should be only 1
[mailbox] Tony getting so close to going down too.
[batgrrl] pitting next time by
[BL47] go crew !
[JWilson47] Man I just wish we could find some speed
[roll400ex] Gonna be a long day huh?
[mailbox] Looks like it.
[moto18] Yes that be nice for once
[BillyR] Lets go crew
[derek] was it a good stop?
[Nascar Fan 47] no kyle
[derek] oh no kyle
[batgrrl] "I got a vibration"
[HunterB] Bobby has a vibration
[BillyR] Poor kyle... not
[HunterB] "10/4 we are ready"
[coolhands] Jeeze can't win this week
[batgrrl] "bunch of people busted on speeding"
[mike 47] staying out?
[pgwarrior] jus cant catch a break
[BillyR] Hope its not the same axle problem
[batgrrl] and then DG mentioned that Bobby did good on pit road
[HunterB] Bobby hasnt said anything sinc
[mike 47] 26
[derek] how many laps down?
[HunterB] Was a great pit stop BTW
[pgwarrior] there will be a mystery debris call soon
[batgrrl] "can't make it much longer, dude"
[fan447] had they practiced more, they could have potentially gotten the car better and worked out the kinks prior to race day
[pgwarrior] we are done
[batgrrl] "We're ready when you're ready
[batgrrl] "coming to you"
[BillyR] So far I dont see a change with the new car on a 1.5 mile
[HunterB] Bobby is pitting
[mike 47] great
[batgrrl] "right front wheel"
[BillyR] Will I get fined for saying something bad about the car
[HunterB] Well there we go
[coolhands] The car wasn't gonna get any better this week. It seemed to be going backwards and getting worse as the week went on
[HunterB] 30th place finish
[derek] back to where we were last year
[pgwarrior] great...we are still trying to get four tires on with all of their lug nuts.....#$!#%$#%@#
[jaa 47] yea
[jaa 47] i mean like i said
[Nascar Fan 47] better then last
[jaa 47] they are better than the crap teams
[jaa 47] but not good better than anyone else
[jaa 47] so they will run 25-30th every week
[pgwarrior] not today
[jaa 47] thats it
[HunterB] 2 laps down
[fan447] Poor Kingsford
[jaa 47] dont expect much this season
[BillyR] Come on guys quit bringing everyone else down
[pgwarrior] hope for a quickie caution
[roll400ex] I wish we could run good dern it
[jaa 47] dose of reality
[jaa 47] sorry Billy
[derek] its the reality of haveing a small team
[derek] never do good
[jaa 47] yup
[AJN] anyone know why the leaderboard is still from homestead?
[JWilson47] walked away and now were in the back
[BillyR] Its a mistake doesn't mean the car is bad or we will run like this every week
[JWilson47] what happened?
[jaa 47] im a Bobby fan....but JTG doesn't have the $$$ funds to ever run well
[roll400ex] Maybe the whole field will crash
[coolhands] Slow at Daytona. Bad handling at Phoenix and now vegas
[jaa 47] ^
[Nascar Fan 47] ture
[jaa 47] bobby couldnt even keep the draft at the end at daytona
[HunterB] JTG is covered with sponsors though....
[derek] not blameing bobby just hate the gen 6 cars
[moto18] Yea im with you I remember them saying they were ahead of the learning curve
[jaa 47] god knows how...must be selling for cheaper than anyone else
[Nascar Fan 47] ture
[coolhands] COT wasn't great for bobby either. Can't blame gen 6
[BillyR] You don't know how much they are paying to sponsor bobby
[derek] the gen 6 was supposed to make everyone even and the big teams are still dominateing
[fan447] HunterB - how do you think those sponsors measure the value of their sponsorship dollars?... question for all that have an opinion
[HunterB] We need a caution quick or we are going 3 laps downm
[megan] I'm sure Todd is glad he isn't in here
[jaa 47] yea
[jaa 47] so much for accountability
[AJN] chill out guys one mistake in the pits doesn't warrant all this
[moto18] Todd should be working not here
[Doug] todd posted a video of the pit stop ------->
[roll400ex] They should go buy a jgr car under the table and not tell anyone hehe
[jaa 47] its not a mistake in the pits
[jaa 47] that has people upset
[BillyR] Todd should not have to baby sit us and work at thw same time
[megan] okay, sorry I said anything
[jaa 47] caution
[jaa 47] bah
[fan447] I don't think anyone is being mean in here
[Nascar Fan 47] good
[derek] well there is the mystery debris caution
[mike 47] wave around?
[jaa 47] bobby is pissed
[jaa 47] freakin crap week in and week out
[jaa 47] haha
[blabontefan47] agree jaa
[HunterB] Bobby agrees with us
[fan447] if Bobby is pissed, we can be too... lol
[jaa 47] yea
[jaa 47] these cars are crap
[JWilson47] Is that what he said jaa?
[jaa 47] yes
[jaa 47] exact words
[derek] well at least we agree with our driver
[coolhands] Makes me feel better that at least he's angry too
[moto18] Im bored watching not sure qbout you guys
[LuckyCali] something bout a wheel, but couldn't make it out.
[jaa 47] jtg gives bobby a crap car
[jaa 47] o well
[roll400ex] Well there ya go I think someone else feels like we r sayin
[pgwarrior] we should stay out
[jaa 47] but the guys at the shop work hard...so its all good
[AJN] take wave?
[AJN] i hope
[roll400ex] He said week end week out
[pgwarrior] need to get back to one lap down
[jaa 47] its not the shop guys...its jtg not putting the money into the team...running toyota is just stupid
[jaa 47] with triad crap
[moto18] Sony worry they will get it together with couple races left
[HunterB] Ok... P39 we are the last on 2 laps down... The first car 2 laps down is P32
[HunterB] They are taking wave around
[batgrrl] will be doing the wave around
[derek] okay it is early but trying to change the subject is bobby staying with jtg nxt year
[fan447] no need for us to sing Old Land Syne and pretend that we're doing great. No tbashing, but rather discussing the issues that the team faces, or celebrating success. We would all be happier celebrating success, but we're stuck with what we have to discuss.
[blabontefan47] lol your radios are faster than mine
[moto18] Yea I agree ditch Toyota
[HunterB] Derek we have no where else to go than JTG
[HunterB] So I say stick here rather than Burger King racing or whatever...
[jaa 47] yea..no one is bashing bobby, guys in the shop
[HunterB] At least we arent on the bottom
[pgwarrior] again...can't get a wheel on the car with all of the lug nuts....
[derek] we have no wehere to go but up ..........
[pgwarrior] happended a couple of times last year.
[Doug] todd doesnt seem convinced there was a tire issue
[Nascar Fan 47] it not toyota it who makes are engies
[HunterB] I think we are using TRD engines now
[jaa 47] yea...triad crap
[HunterB] but the handling is a problem
[Nascar Fan 47] no
[jaa 47] nope
[derek] we r still useing traid
[jaa 47] maybe reliable...but slow
[HunterB] I read many articles that the guys in the shop thank TRD etc
[AJN] jtg is better than front row, bk, baldwin, stremme, etc
[HunterB] But JTG wont give a STRAIGHT answer
[jaa 47] they arent using trd
[Nascar Fan 47] no
[HunterB] Then how come they thank them for helping them out? I heard Bobby H state that a few times
[Nascar Fan 47] i mean yes
[fan447] Do you guys remember last year, there were a few times that Bobby came in complaining of a vibration... and nothing could be found to be wrong. I wonder what causes that?
[jaa 47] they recieve support from trd
[jaa 47] but engines from triad
[HunterB] Poor handling car fan
[BillyR] Trd is helping us with engineering
[jaa 47] ^
[derek] so wait were 1 lap down now
[HunterB] If we had TRD engines im CONVINCED we would race like the 56 and 15
[blabontefan47] took wave derek
[AJN] i wouldn't want a trd engine with what's been happening lately
[jaa 47] prob be off a little
[jaa 47] from them
[jaa 47] we were off the pace by 3-6 mph in practive
[HunterB] AJN, i'd rather run in the top 20 and blow and engine than run 20-30 with crap
[jaa 47] ^^
[derek] think of it this way we are not in last
[Nascar Fan 47] ture
[BillyR] Didn't all Toyotas use triad at one point besides gibbs
[jaa 47] bull...thats a terrible way to look at it
[Nascar Fan 47] yes
[HunterB] p36 1 lap down
[jaa 47] o yea..well we arent 43rd
[jaa 47] wippy
[HunterB] Did anyone notice no start and parks this race???
[fan447] Is not being last how you measure success?
[jaa 47] 98 s&p
[HunterB] the 98 parked
[HunterB] 87 had a problem I think
[Doug] it seems like TRD decided to put all its money into JGR and MWR, right after TRD told JTG they cant supply them engines, MWR became competitive
[HunterB] but at least it isnt 10 cars
[jaa 47] p35
[call44] the 98 had a vibration and decided to park it (per nascar.com)
[JWilson47] I just hate when they say were light years ahead now compared to last year, but we have nothing to show for it.
[HunterB] Up to p32
[BillyR] If gibbs didn't stop building their own engines we might have TRD
[Nascar Fan 47] we have a new car
[JWilson47] Keep going Bobby
[Nascar Fan 47] no 48 in the lead
[jaa 47] p31
[JWilson47] p 31
[JWilson47] wheres the LD?
[Nascar Fan 47] p 32
[HunterB] What place are we in again? lol
[LuckyCali] Remember last year the team was a new team, well now they are a 2 year old team but with all new cars..again. So it's like a new team all over again. Give em a few more races probably still building cars, low inventory. Probably doing best they can. ;)
[derek] i think 1st
[BillyR] Thank you diane
[moto18] Old excuse
[mailbox] LD is 22nd
[jaa 47] yea seriously
[AJN] moving up
[batgrrl] and he's quiet again
[jaa 47] stop with the lame excuses
[HunterB] If we get a caution anytime in the next 20 laps it will really save us
[mailbox] jaa 47 Grow up!!!!
[JWilson47] Plenty of time
[JWilson47] need a caution
[moto18] Mailbox its the truth
[derek] this is the way the chat room is we are upset at the begining of the race and by the end werer happy
[AJN] the 17 should wreck soon
[jaa 47] grow up! what are you 5?
[Doug] todd ssaid the new car can use the old chassis, so i imagine some of the old data is still good for the new car
[HunterB] Guys stop
[HunterB] I think we can all agree we want us to do better
[jaa 47] they built all new chasis
[HunterB] Lets leave it at that
[jaa 47] for this season
[BillyR] Yes new chassis
[mailbox] moto18 What is the truth? That this is an underfunded team diong the best they can with what they have? Sure, if you think you can do better go rith ahead.
[AJN] running faster times than the next few in front
[Doug] my point is, i dont think they are starting from 0 on data, if they are starting from 0 then we cant expect much
[jaa 47] going to need a caution soon
[BillyR] The problem is with the single team and the new car we couldn't compare to anyone
[Doug] yes, true
[jaa 47] p31
[Doug] and we were behind on data anyway so
[moto18] Truth,is they said they were light years ahead and infront of the learning curve this year and yet they run in the back
[pgwarrior] doing a caution dance herre.....seems like the car is better hooked up
[jaa 47] realistic expectations for this season was to run anywhere from 18-24
[mailbox] Which means what? If you look several teams are also in the back like MWR, Pettey, SHR etc....
[jaa 47] they are still a 27th place + team
[Doug] no matter what it is, it comes down to money, they dont have enough
[jaa 47] ^
[derek] jsut think we were 14th in points comeing in here
[HunterB] 14 laps to stop
[HunterB] Pray for a caution
[Doug] ( still beating princess D )
[BillyR] The only option nascar could do is like indy car did. Everyone runs the same car and same engine
[derek] lol danica back to her old ways
[moto18] Alright well will see how the next few races go
[jaa 47] going to catch the 13
[Doug] im more upset about todds posts, kind of implies they didnt believe there was a vibration
[LuckyCali] I think alot of teams thought that they would be racing much better and different than right now. I'm beginning to think they should just run the cars the Nwide has only longer races etc lol
[Doug] yeah, COT hasnt been much fun
[BillyR] Yea this car is no difference on these tracks
[Cindy] What happened on the pit stop? I was cooking.
[Doug] why not old school cars, just safer
[derek] u know.. id like to see bobby race some nationwide races
[LuckyCali] Osmonds are very smart ;) ------------------------------------>
[AJN] pitting soon?
[Doug] yeah i noticed that earlier, no wonder todd is not on, hes probably fawning over her
[JWilson47] what Doug said, bring back the old cars
[BillyR] Im surprised no one has asked Bobby for a NNS race.. maybe jtg wont let him
[Cindy] Jim Utter@jim_utter Thanks for the 38th place car update Fox
[Nascar Fan 47] or turck
[batgrrl] 6 away
[mike 47] very boring race
[LuckyCali] Don't mind fast race today. Gota leave in another hour 1/2
[blabontefan47] next time by pit
[BillyR] Long green flag race means only like 14 will be on LL at the end
[47forever] In the pit.
[derek] yay they mentioned bobby
[Doug] they had only 40 cars in the NW race yesterday
[BillyR] Well we got a mention.. but jeez gotta pit by yourself to get mentioned
[Doug] wish i had a car to snp
[AJN] nw field is 40 cars
[AJN] new this yr
[Doug] that explains it
[Cindy] Jim Utter@jim_utter Rookie Ricky Stenhouse Jr. is 15th and on the lead lap. How could he possibly accomplish that?????
[mailbox] NW snp barely will pay for the gas used.
[HunterB] We are the first car 3 laps down
[BillyR] Need a caution again
[Jabee47] this race is BORING
[mike 47] need it to go green for a while
[derek] think there willl be any good cautions?
[batgrrl] "really really tight right now"
[jaa 47] 13.6 on last stop...nice stop
[Cindy] Which is better....tight or loose?
[Doug] both are bad
[mailbox] Depends on the driving style
[47forever] "Really really tight right here out of one."
[Nascar Fan 47] loose
[Doug] tight wont turn, loose spins out
[Cindy] Thanks Doug.....neither is best
[BillyR] Although loose may be a little better to control
[pgwarrior] our tires are 40 laps newer than the leader and we can only manage the same speed? roflmao
[Nascar Fan 47] tighte more brake slower speed loose speed but slower in turns
[BL47] Go Bobby !
[Jabee47] stay green...we can get laps back when leaders pit
[jaa 47] 30.7
[jaa 47] best lap time i think so far
[Cindy] Just beat Danica!
[BL47] Marie in our pit area is good luck
[BillyR] Lol any of us in a race car could beat her
[derek] lol my dog chould beat her
[Nascar Fan 47] ha
[Nascar Fan 47] :)
[47forever] Even I could beat her. And I'm 15 and can't drive yet!
[derek] sme here ^
[jaa 47] p32
[pgwarrior] JJ running better laps at the end of his run than we are at the beginning....gonna be a long year
[derek] cant wait untill talladega
[jaa 47] yea we are way off the pace of the lead cars
[mailbox] Bristol next week
[BillyR] A caution now would be interesting
[Nascar Fan 47] same
[mailbox] Got 1 back
[jaa 47] i dont know what to tell you per bob
[47forever] "I don't know, there's a chatter. Tight, loose, I don't know"
[AJN] jgr struggling with pit road speed
[jaa 47] p28
[fan447] To the sensitive ones in the room, I seriously don't think any comments today have been hateful. Critical maybe, but nothing that is bashing. Of course, it is only my opinion. Either way, this sucks for Bobby fans.
[Jabee47] oh look....here comes Danica pitting
[fan447] and JTG sponsors...
[Nascar Fan 47] ?
[derek] i think everyone in here wants bobby somewhere better but he is getting older... and noone wants him so we can be thankful that jtg has us and we are not a s&p
[BillyR] No but the complaining gets old fast and its quite annoying
[47forever] Very true derek.
[Nascar Fan 47] look at mark martian
[mailbox] Kingsford has been with JTG for many years. I dont think they will be too upset. They go in to this with their eyes wide open.
[BL47] indeed BillyR
[fan447] I like the truck or nationwide idea.
[BillyR] Yea I was going to say look at Mark
[derek] true about mark but mark always had good cars bobby went into nobodys and dove and people forgot about him
[jaa 47] 32.00 lap time
[jaa 47] woo
[BillyR] Mark did the same thing
[fan447] Truck championship would go nicely with Nationwide and Cup
[jaa 47] 2 seconds slower than the leader
[BillyR] Mark was racing with a single team for awhile
[Jabee47] P29 now...
[fan447] no one else has never accomplished all three
[derek] but he was still noticable and a somebody
[AJN] 15 got around
[JWilson47] Mark was racing with the 01 and almost won the Daytona 500!
[BillyR] We got screwed by Petty look at them now
[JWilson47] that race was awesome
[derek] agree with the petty comment
[Jabee47] not really fair to compare Petty today to Petty when Bobby was in the 43....merged companies and they split back...
[Nascar Fan 47] and bankrup
[BillyR] No remember when they let Bobby go then 2 weeks later oh we are back
[Jabee47] only 16 cars on the lead lap....a caution soon would help a lot....some spots to be gained...
[jaa 47] bobby said again..i don't know what to say
[Doug] and mark never won a championship
[Doug] and i like him a lot but hes known as a whiner
[Doug] but his career is still alive
[BillyR] And Bobby's career is not
[derek] bobbys career hasnt been alive since he went to the 96 car
[Nascar Fan 47] no 43
[Doug] marie still hot for being 100
[derek] i want to bee a vip guest and sit on bobbys pit box
[fan447] Eww. Want to see bashing? Go to JTG FB. Poster there calling Bobby a washed up has been. Now that is way out of line.
[derek] well.. he is past his prime..
[fan447] He can do the job. for sure.
[BillyR] I really dont think age has to do with much
[mailbox] I sure am glad we're not bashing Bobby and the team IN HERE!!!!
[Doug] thats probably misha, he always says that
[jaa 47] is not a bobby issue
[jaa 47] its the cars which handle bad and are slow
[derek] its the car and a money issiue
[JWilson47] I believe Bobby still can get the job done, just needs the right equipment
[Doug] he does ok on short tracks, where aero or whatever isnt as important
[jaa 47] yea
[Doug] he shows he can still race when the car isnt trying to wreck
[fan447] and where top end speed isn't as important
[Doug] yes, that too
[derek] bobbys also good at superspeedways
[JWilson47] Exactly, when handling and aero isnt important, Bobby does great. Dega, daytona, and short tracks
[JWilson47] and road courses
[47forever] "This thing is so loose."
[Doug] if they had any HP at all, he would have won daytona whatever that year was, but the car was a slug
[jaa 47] ^
[JWilson47] That race was awesome
[fan447] But there have been so many people turning wrenches in the JTG shop over the past few years... why has none of hem taken the car to the next level? I gotta thing single car team.
[Doug] yeah, it was pretty exciting
[JWilson47] He could of pushed Trevor farther away from Edwards, so he could put a move on
[Doug] 2nd is the place to be coming to the line
[LuckyCali] heard right rear loose loose
[derek] another green flag pit in 4 laps
[JWilson47] Oh yeah, would have had him set up perfect
[47forever] "Right rear is loose, loose, loose. Really loose."
[47forever] In the pit. In our box.
[jaa 47] another thing that cracks me up was last season when jtg claimed they didnt really focus on qualifying during practice and worked on race packages...seriously delusional thinking
[derek] danica is gonna qreck again
[Jabee47] time for a caution dance
[HunterB] Well at least Kasey is my second favorite driver
[derek] yeah megan at leask kasey is doing good
[47forever] Same with me. I like Kasey too.
[fan447] I just see a lot of missed opportunities. Had 4 practices this weekend. Only turned 77 laps. My head can't get around that.
[derek] 15 cars on LL
[jaa 47] ^
[BillyR] Kk is one of those quiet drivers that just does his thing
[mailbox] They had to work on the car. You cant log laps while it's in the garage.
[jaa 47] probably couldnt improve much anyways
[Jabee47] ok..I see Bobby has pitted and now is 4 laps down
[Doug] it might have been becasue the conditions were bad, and they didnt think it was useful data
[derek] yes jabee47
[Doug] or they couldnt afford the tires
[jaa 47] ha
[jaa 47] i hope things arent that bad
[Doug] didnt want to spend money on tires, for nothing i mean
[derek] can we just steal on of jimmys cars and paint over it
[BL47] fan447 , they had a viberation for part of that practice
[AJN] getting a bunch of laps in didn't seem to help dp much
[Doug] i would like to see how he does in a real hot rod, would he be first or just top 10?
[jaa 47] we will never know
[BillyR] Practice only does so good
[Jabee47] not good being off the pit schdule...we keep losing two laps ev3ry time we pit...
[derek] does bobby still remember how to do a burn out lol
[Doug] i wonder
[batgrrl] he never did burnouts
[BillyR] Bobby never really did burn outs
[Doug] hed probably play it cool and just ride around slow
[fan447] then why did kyle busch run 180 laps or so? just to ride around?
[Doug] save the car
[derek] oh well im young.. i never seen him win a race
[jaa 47] caution
[derek] so r we stuck 4 laps down
[jaa 47] yea
[batgrrl] if the lead lap cars pit, they'll take the wave around
[JWilson47] how many laps down
[fan447] I call BS on that caution
[BillyR] Caution for that?
[mailbox] 4 now
[47forever] We needed that so bad!
[Doug] at least we arnt sideways like that petty junk
[jaa 47] yea lets get 30th!
[LuckyCali] if we do a wave we can at least try to race up into the 20's. Which as bad as the car is would be good.
[Jabee47] whoopee....we stay out and get back to three laps back
[batgrrl] in 2007 he was in the nationwide at talladegah and he won it.
[jaa 47] the car is slow
[jaa 47] lap times cant even sustain 29th/30th
[jaa 47] damn 7 car is faster
[derek] he raced in nationwide in 2007 .. i didnt really watch nationwide
[47forever] I don't think Bobby has ever done a burnout except for when he spins out.
[jaa 47] its not even funny how uncompetive the 47 is today
[jaa 47] 1-1.8s off the pace
[jaa 47] every lap
[Doug] its been a while since someone put the nose in the wall, and burned the tires down till they catch on fire
[Doug] he should do that after a race, just for the fun of it
[jaa 47] probably not enough HP to get the tires spinning
[LuckyCali] He did do a donut at Atlanta once. He probably wouldn't do anything to hurt the car or motor. At JGR didn't matter.
[derek] yeah IF we win with jtg we will have to save the car so we can race it next week
[jaa 47] unless its a plate track...jtg is not wininng a race
[LuckyCali] LOL did you see Sam Hornish Jr yesturday? Poor guy.
[jaa 47] they arent even close
[jaa 47] to winning
[Doug] what did sam do?
[mailbox] He won
[Doug] yeah i saw that...
[coolhands] Most times it's hard enough to make it to the top 10 let alone a win
[BL47] get out and grill
[derek] a top 20
[derek] is hard to
[LuckyCali] He pulled the car against the wall started to do a burnout and was trying to lean out the window at the same time. The car kept slipping while he was on teh window. lol
[coolhands] Even if we have a great car we still have pit stop issues or loose lugs, or speeding or pitting alone at a plate track...
[BillyR] Can't wait for Bristol
[Doug] darn i missed that
[derek] cant wait untill bobby wins
[BL47] pull those belts tight and get a lap back
[BillyR] Cautions breed cautions
[derek] wow kyle
[coolhands] How many are we down
[BillyR] And kyle almost takes half the field out again
[derek] id like a top 30 finish
[Doug] dang ricky, had a nice car
[Doug] messed it up
[LuckyCali] I think it all depends on when Bobby is ready to slow down. He may feel he's lost some, maybe even gets he may never win again, but if he still wants to race full time he's probably on teams where that works out for him. And he's trying to help a small team, maybe that'swhere he likes to be.
[Doug] unless hes "adjusting" the aero
[AJN] he won in nw last year after wrecking
[Doug] bobby can still win, just needs a good ride
[jaa 47] ^
[derek] ...we wont find a better ride
[Doug] why do people like bowyer and burton get good cars when they have never done anything
[jaa 47] this 47 car isnt it and will never be it
[derek] the 47 car is the car bobby will retire in
[BL47] good point Doug
[AJN] clint finished 2nd in points last year...
[Doug] i know
[Doug] good car
[BL47] not a champion
[JWilson47] Didnt realize Kenseth is 41 years old
[JWilson47] Maybe Bobby will get a chance somewhere else
[JWilson47] you never know
[47forever] "I'm freaking sideways this time"
[derek] theres no teams opening up
[mailbox] I think Bobby likes it where he is and will retire from the 47 shop.
[LuckyCali] I do like that Bobby only signs 1 year at a time.
[coolhands] No ones gonna want bobby. He hasn't been a part of a championship hunt in 8 years
[47forever] "Got no freaking sideforce man."
[Doug] he may like the owners and the team, but he doesnt seem to like the cars :}
[derek] lol yeahh
[47forever] Uh oh. He's starting to say freaking a lot.
[mailbox] Uh oh
[47forever] "I'm getting looser, and looser, and looser."
[Doug] capital F may be coming
[derek] i have a feeling were gonna be the next caution
[coolhands] I think part is the team and part is the driver. Bobby can't drive the same as other younger guys. Bobby could get back in the 18 next week and still not run like Kyle does
[derek] just bobbys driving style
[derek] 8 laps from pitting again
[Doug] kyle is a freak, and like it sideways, but in a decent car im not sure he has lost anything
[coolhands] His style never evolved with the new cars that came and went
[Doug] maybe a lost a little confidence from so may bad years, but you can get that back with a stable car and some good finishes
[derek] but u need a good team^^
[coolhands] Hopefully it is confidence but I don't see him getting a big confidence booster anytime soon
[LuckyCali] Mville? Charlotte? Might be good confidence
[coolhands] He would run better if he could drive a loose car with more confidence. He's so used to having to save cars that he doesn't push it to the limit I'm sure. But who am I to critique I couldn't imagine driving into a turn at 150 not knowing if it was gonna come out from under me
[coolhands] There he goes
[mailbox] Guys, it's the 3rd race of the season and we have ALREADY written them off? Give them a break. I think things are going to get better, might not win one but they'll do better.
[JWilson47] One thing that JTG loves about Bobby is he protects the equipment
[JWilson47] whose the caution for?
[coolhands] We spun
[Jabee47] please tell me we had not pitted already
[derek] r we still in the race
[Nascar Fan 47] no
[Cindy] yes, Bobby, we believe you
[derek] should jut park it
[LuckyCali] BL - Now do you believe me its loose?
[Nascar Fan 47] help from 38
[LuckyCali] don't think he got em. looked very close
[Jabee47] no you cant bloame the 38...Bobby spun all by himself
[Nascar Fan 47] help never said cit cause it
[derek] we can blame anyone we want
[BL47] it's your fault derek
[moto18] I blame jtg
[JWilson47] The car is just to loose, just lost it
[mailbox] derek ......then it was YOUR fault!!!
[derek] ill take the fault
[Jabee47] ok..then blame JPM
[Doug] HAHA, jpm
[fan447] some equipment isn't worth saving
[LuckyCali] ok blame nascar...but only if you got $25, 000 :| Sorry still a little ticked on that one.
[mailbox] Its JUANs fault!!!
[derek] blame danica
[moto18] Yea I blam jpm should not be in naccar
[Nascar Fan 47] it was a brid
[Jabee47] well..Bobby is the ONLY car four laps down
[Doug] whats that about $25?
[Nascar Fan 47] we did get spon time lol
[mailbox] He didnt lose anything on that spin.
[Doug] err, 25000
[Jabee47] Doug...thats $25,000
[Doug] did we get fined?
[mailbox] No, Denny did
[coolhands] I'm sure he lost his patience with that spin
[Jabee47] no Doug...Dennfy Hamlin criticized the G6 car...so NASCAR fined him $25,000
[moto18] Yea I standwithdenny
[Doug] i see
[derek] since we spun we will now right
[fan447] Maybe JTG should hire old basketball head to help out with car setups
[mailbox] Good thing NASCAR isnt in here today. They would be issuing fines all day long in here.
[Nascar Fan 47] lol
[derek] well we can all say this... at least todd is not here
[Nascar Fan 47] :o
[Nascar Fan 47] :o
[derek] todd whould be angry at us
[Jabee47] well..I think things have been too safe today...time to get going and I expect a nice wreck to take about five cars out and Bobby finishes in P25
[Jabee47] unless...Bobby is the cause of the wreck
[LuckyCali] watching Bobby but listening to Denny now. But will have to sign off shortly. See you all on FB or next week. Gotta cleaning job to go to.
[mailbox] C ya cali
[47forever] "Why is it that every week you do this to me?"
[BillyR] Bye Diane
[jaa 47] haha
[jaa 47] he is pissed
[BillyR] Did he really say that?
[coolhands] Oh wowwwwww I can't believe he said that
[jaa 47] im telling you
[jaa 47] he is not happy
[HunterB] What did he say?
[HunterB] Im not listening
[fan447] what he say? what he say?
[jaa 47] he was probably promised a bag of good to resign with JTG
[derek] i wish i chould listen to bobbys radio
[jaa 47] and cars still suck
[Cindy] We are still beating Danica!
[jaa 47] you think bobby wants to drive this crap? has to frustrate the heck out of him
[BillyR] The pace car driver is beating danica and he's not even racing
[fan447] tell us what he said...
[derek] lol billy
[jaa 47] his threshold is so high too...when he becomes frustrated and starts to vent you know he is fed up
[BL47] he was talking about the 83 or the 36 car holding him up
[jaa 47] bobby was saying...why do you guys do this to me every week...
[jaa 47] earlier he said the car was basically crap
[fan447] oh, got it
[jaa 47] he is not a happy camper
[jaa 47] you can tell
[derek] maybe bobby is in the chat room...
[BL47] he said why do THESE guys do this to me
[BillyR] I really don't think bobby would say anything bad about the team
[lockdog] Well when ur stuck riding back there with other junk cars thats what happens
[mailbox] Soooo he WASN'T talking to the crew, just other drivers holding him up? Hmmm....
[jaa 47] no
[47forever] Your mind will take over you when you do bad.
[derek] probbably just pissed off all toghter
[jaa 47] he was not talking about other drivers holding him up
[BL47] he is talking about the drivers he is around on the track
[jaa 47] yea now
[Cindy] Just no Johnson today.....please
[47forever] Please be Kasey.
[fan447] Reutiman is a jacka$$. He races Bobby like crazy and never cuts him slack. Then smiles and acts nice with that big pecker nose.
[jaa 47] i cant stand reuty
[lockdog] Pretty bad when a race is so bad that they show a car gettin lose as the only excitement
[derek] i still thought gen 6 car was supposed to be better
[Jabee47] oh..no....Danica might have hit the wall...after all she is all the way up to 32nd
[47forever] "I don't know what to say. Once I got passed, whatever Burger King car that was, I had no where to go."
[derek] wave around?? why not
[fan447] tell us about it basketball
[fan447] probably pecker nose
[derek] r we 5 laps down/
[coolhands] If the car was better every week you wouldn't have to worry about bring stuck behind the worst Toyota team in Nascar
[jaa 47] ^
[47forever] I think you have forgotten about Joe N. car.
[derek] i lvoe front row joe lol
[Jabee47] darn..we did not even gain a spot from that
[BL47] $ makes speed feel free to chip in
[coolhands] Do you think Hamlin, or Montoya or anyone else complains about BK cars holding them up
[Jabee47] here we go...I feel a wreck coming on this restart
[coolhands] Hamlin says he can't pass anyone but even he can pass the BK cars
[mailbox] Sure they do, just because you dont hear them doesnt mean they dont say it.
[derek] the new coke commerical is stupid
[Jabee47] and..I guess Bobby is no longer a coke driver
[BillyR] No hes not along with several other drivers
[JWilson47] Didnt Bobby do a coke shoot earlier in the year?
[BillyR] I don't remember
[47forever] I just love Bobby's "if I had a nickel" shots.
[derek] lol yeahh
[JWilson47] Well what the heck is Bobby suppose to drink after every interview now?
[BillyR] Yea those are great
[fan447] what interview?
[JWilson47] Idk, he'll get in interview sometime this year
[mailbox] He eats a Bubba burger
[JWilson47] lol ^
[BillyR] Well Clorox.. but I wouldn't recommend drink that
[fan447] perhaps he will, but not during rain delays. for some reason he disappears. lol
[derek] he goes to sleep
[mailbox] Yeah, us old farts need our rest.
[derek] so does this young one
[fan447] all farts need rest
[47forever] Bobby did say that he likes to be alone a lot.
[Doug] we still have bubba burgers? i bought some and had 2 yesterday and i wondered if they were still a spnsor
[Doug] loved that car
[derek] did we wave around?
[47forever] I think.
[derek] yay 4 laps down?>
[Jabee47] Bobby is ba k to four down
[derek] psst were in 31st
[47forever] I love red velvet cake.
[47forever] Yeah. I'm eating some right now.
[fan447] what triggered that? the fart talk?
[47forever] I don't know.
[derek] what we were talking about farts?
[BillyR] You people confuse me.. lol.
[47forever] I'm not even gonna bring that subject up.
[fan447] farts need rest. Bobby waved around to shake off a fart
[derek] so do we have to pit again
[47forever] What? lol
[jaa 47] caution
[fan447] at least this is humorous
[jaa 47] or not
[JWilson47] theres a spot for us
[jaa 47] caution
[47forever] Caution for fluid.
[derek] woohoo we brok 30th
[47forever] "Still... Uh... Still loose I guess. It can be pretty loose at times."
[Doug] flagwave yaay a spot
[Jabee47] more oil on the track....it is going to happen...
[47forever] They're pitting.
[derek] flagwave flagwave flagwave flagwave flagwave flagwave flagwave flagwave flagwave *carcrash*
[BillyR] He dropped oil right over the speedy dry
[fan447] i wish all the cars really sucked handling wise, and the least sucky car won. Would be much more interesting to see the drivers fighting the handling, about to spin at every turn.
[mailbox] Pit? No pit?
[derek] now its true cautions breed cautions
[jaa 47] pitting
[BillyR] I'd say we run half the cars backwards.
[derek] is there going to be a big one??
[47forever] In the box.
[BL47] restarts have been dicey
[derek] we need the top 25 cars to wreck
[BillyR] If someone screws up the restart again it wont be pretty
[Jabee47] lot of contact on the last restart...and KyleB is in 6th....could get ugly
[mailbox] Only if we're lucky.
[derek] hmm top 29 wreck and we win it is possibale... if were at talladega
[Doug] i dont see bubba burgers in the list of sponsors
[Doug] guess i have to throw these out
[jaa 47] Austin Dillon: "How about this 47? Is he on my lap?" Crew chief Nick Harrison: "He's like 400 laps down."
[jaa 47] bahaha
[mailbox] Cook em first Doug
[47forever] Do we still have Masterpiece?
[derek] lol 400 laps down
[jaa 47] https://twitter.com/jeff ··· 77979648
[derek] were good on fuel
[Doug] i dont see masterpiece either :(
[fan447] pitiful that other teams aknowledge how far off the team is
[Doug] screw dillon and his cc or spotter
[Jabee47] look at all the speedy dry blowing
[derek] here we goo
[mailbox] All this charcoal and nuttin to grill!!
[Doug] and his studid azz hat
[47forever] NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! We lost Masterpiece too! I feel bad for using it last night now!
[derek] what is hamlin doing
[fan447] sponsors can'
[fan447] oops... sponsors can't stay with no exposure. 30th gets zero
[derek] got tv time whien we spun
[47forever] Who wants to do a Harlem Shake vid with me? lol
[fan447] got to see all sides of the car. :)
[mailbox] Sponsors aren't stupid. They know EXACTLY what they are getting in to.
[derek] ahh the race is over
[Jabee47] seems odd...we did not gain the spot... still P31
[mailbox] Lost a spot to Ragan
[jaa 47] dan 34 is faster
[jaa 47] patheic
[Doug] yeah its pretty bad
[47forever] Our best speed is 175.787... -_-
[Doug] just hope its not every 1.5 track
[jaa 47] it will be
[Doug] we always suck at vegas
[BillyR] This is our first 1.5 mile track.. lets learn something and move on
[47forever] And Kasey's best is 184.351... -______-
[derek] this is gonna be a major hit to points
[jaa 47] yea
[jaa 47] we are slow
[47forever] Almost 10 mph difference between them...
[fan447] look at the positive... at least it's not 11 MPH slower. lol
[47forever] Screw this. I'm gonna go make some Chef Boyardee.
[jaa 47] haha
[fan447] that's some good stuff
[derek] chould be better we chould be 9 mph slower
[jaa 47] so uncompetive
[jaa 47] its embarassing
[47forever] Cheesy burger macaroni to be exact.
[mailbox] Make Chef Boyardee? I Thought it was already made. Just warm it up.
[fan447] make it warm
[47forever] :O Chef Boyardee should be Bobby's sponsor again!!!
[BillyR] I like this battle for the lead. 2 drivers I like
[derek] i like the battle for 30th
[fan447] mike joy just peed a little i think
[Jabee47] just hang on...the 2 and 18 are going to wreck...
[Doug] bobby gave kenseth his break into cup, when bobby broke his sholder i think
[Doug] bobby said get kenseth
[fan447] that was Bill Elliott
[JWilson47] Wasnt that at Texas?
[fan447] wasn't it?
[JWilson47] I think it was Bobby,
[BillyR] Kasey and matt may wreck
[jaa 47] darlington 1999
[JWilson47] Cause he did break his shoulder and I think they did get Kenseth
[derek] i was 2 in 1999
[JWilson47] but i might just be crazy
[jaa 47] bobby started the race kenseth was a relief driver
[Doug] this might get good
[BillyR] I do not remember that
[derek] i want a GWC
[mailbox] Bobby might get mixed up in this.
[jaa 47] p30!
[jaa 47] woohoo
[JWilson47] white flag
[derek] here we go
[Doug] according to wiki it was elliot, for his debut
[Doug] but bobby gave him a shot too
[BillyR] That was a good race
[fan447] never question fan447... lol
[Doug] logano must be sick now
[jaa 47] nah
[mailbox] Well, glad thats over with. See yall next week.
[jaa 47] kenseth way better driver
[BL47] Bobby got by David Ragan
[jaa 47] bobby usualy says something at the end of the race
[derek] wohooo 30th
[jaa 47] Nothing today
[jaa 47] didnt say a word
[fan447] better than 31st
[derek] but worse then 29th
[fan447] why must you focus on the negative? :)
[BillyR] Well see ya next weem everyone
