Doug-how are you?
Doug-i knew i'd find you here :)
izzy47-lol...that predictable huh
Doug-yes, its the best too
Doug-id say reliable, not so predictable
Doug-J&Ps NY style
Doug-not sure if its just a local place
izzy47- i've never heard of it, but
Doug-so whats the word, has JTG been on at all?
Doug-i see some wall posts about tight loose, tight
izzy47-not yet...and ya that's all we know
Doug-TV says it could come down to fuel milage, we have been smart and lucky in that lately, so maybe a good finish anyway
izzy47-true...let's hope it does work out
Doug-i see people talking about next year and where Bobby will be, was expecting JTG to tell em to shut up, but they didnt....
Doug-makes me wwonder whats up
Doug-ugggh, fine time to lose you...
Doug-did you see last?
izzy47- i thought you were going to beat me here this week?
jdonovan47-i was to tired to try
izzy47-stay up too late?
jdonovan47-yea, up till 5 am
Doug-i woke up at 5, said the heck with this, went back to sleep
izzy47-we're only 17 min into raceday.. ugh
jdonovan47-IDC today, not really even lookinng foward to the race
jdonovan47-JTG is prob gonna do bad and this track is so freaking boring
izzy47-well, you don't have to watch
jdonovan47-well ill give them the benefit of the doubt its just i hate this track
Doug-i have a feeling it'll be another aero snnozer, but hoping for tons of dramas not involving Bobby- :)
jdonovan47-Doug, thats what everyone hopes
jdonovan47-gonna use PC Megan?
izzy47-yes...usless you don't want me to
jdonovan47-no, its fine just wondoring if you were going to
jdonovan47-you can bring it up at 12:30 and listen to the officials while they set up the prerace, its not too FUN but its a time passer
izzy47-and you change your color too m uch
jdonovan47-lol. yea but idk its fun sorta...
izzy47-let's get this party started...
BennyJr-hello to all that came before me
BennyJr-Are you calm this week Megan?
Doug-i heard about that, did it make the log?
Doug-cool, i'll have to check it out :}
BennyJr-:} I think it was all just due to the boredom of the rain delay...
BennyJr-Too bad Boris isn't racing today
Doug-i know, some race drama would be fun
BennyJr-it causes some good chat room drama too... just pickin Megan
BennyJr-Is this thing to the right something for smartphones, or is my wife just messing with me?
izzy47-it's a QR code...yes a smartphone can scan it and decode it if you have the app for it..i think there is some download for the computer as well but not sure about that
BennyJr-but it's not an app for the chat room, right? something to do with the ad above it??? I'm about to trade the old Blackberry for something more up to date, and notice that some follow via phone. Is that just through the phone's browser or is there something special. Forgive me for the questions.
Doug-you'll have to scan it to see...
Doug-but i think its related to the sweeps
izzy47-no that's fine...yes it's a link directly to the sweepstake above it...on your phone, you'll go to whatever market type thing you have and download an app...search for QR code or something...then you'll open the app and scan using the camera..then you can choose to open the link and it will take you to the entry form..but the same applies to whatever code you decode...
BennyJr-thanks... I'll catch up one day. lol
Doug-i gave up, i drew the line at smart phones, not interested
Doug-stupid touchscreen is such a pain
izzy47-lol...as for the chat room..you'll go into your browser and type in the web address for the chat room...then use your log in info to log on..it looks a little different but has the same basic functions...
izzy47-and Doug it just takes some getting used to
Doug-i know, but someday you'll understand
Doug-happens to us all eventually
BennyJr-Okay, I'll have to try it. I was aggravated Monday bc I could get to the page, but couldn't get the chat up from work. That would have solved that problem, but my productivity may have suffered
izzy47-haha, well you'll get it all figured out in no time
jdonovan47-kp is awsome he just proved a big point!!
jdonovan47-late but wb and brb
izzy47-lol. ty and ok

izzy47-lol..well sounds like fun...
norain-wonder if they got the car up to speed
norain-me too ambrose sure is on a roll he wont win today though
izzy47-no, i don't think he will either
norain-i loved the comment kyle petty made about danica
norain-he said marketing instead of driving has come to nascar
norain-meaning paris hilton would be driving a car if someone wants to sponsor her
izzy47-ya..it's dumb..not how it should be
norain-its a double head sword you need money to race
norain-if i was a billionair id have labonte and jaque villinue on a 2 car team
norain-and id pour somuch money into it they would be lapping jj every 5 laps lololo
izzy47-well..at least Bobby is ready for the race....
jdonovan47-ok im back, hi norain
jdonovan47-i have a question for you adults
jdonovan47-how do they drink beer or wine its the nastiest thing ever!!!!!
izzy47-why is this show 2 hrs long....
jdonovan47-thats better then sitting here doing nothing for that hour
izzy47-but if it was one hour and right before the prerace i could sleep for another hour
jdonovan47-you dont have to watch it wb
norain-kept saying user name in use
norain-had to rebooot to get back
jdonovan47-lol i was waiting for you to rejoin so i could post that
norain-oh lol thanks

norain-was starting to think i was done here lo

izzy47-well at least you'll see this one...
norain-yes the gen set will probley break now ahahaha
izzy47-lol...i hope not..
norain-had a hot dog for breakfast
marac43-Hi just got home from out of town,,, how is the car working?
izzy47-well...it has seemed a little slow in prac...hope they found a balance..
marac43-yeah starting 28 is no bueno... hopefully he can get up in there alittle
BennyJr-i hope Bobby's not "freakin" loose today. Good thing is that you can move your line around so much there.
BennyJr-Been thinking about engines... so if MWR currently gets engines from TRD, it makes sense that MWR would dyno them when they receive them, and choose the stronger ones. What happens when JGR and TRD begin working together? JGR will dyno, keep the best, then divy out the rest. So when MWR gets them, they will keep the best of the rest and JTG will get what's left. Does that concern anyone else?
jdonovan47-jtg my not be with toyota next year so not really
jdonovan47-may not my
BennyJr-heard those rumors too... heard some talk bout Fords. I really hope not, just not a Ford guy, but it makes the most sense in a way.
jdonovan47-well whats not rumors is that jtg will not be working out if the mwr shop next year
jdonovan47-they already said that
BennyJr-oh really? Didn't catch that report... hmmm...
izzy47-they said the contract was up at the end of the year..i did not hear a confirm that they will not resign...
jdonovan47-yea what Megan said, but time is running out
jdonovan47-next season is fast approaching
BennyJr-yep, although they haven't confirmed Bobby, all comments seem to sound like that is the plan. Tad was on Sirius this week and he really talked up Bobby
jdonovan47-Brad did to on nascar now
BennyJr-Earlier in the season I know Bobby was really working on getting on and off pit road, seems like he needs to get a little more aggressive on restarts. Just my opinion, but it just seems like he's a little to relaxed on take off.
izzy47-he's never been the greatest restarter...hate to say it but...
Doug-true that, and he admits it too
BennyJr-really no good way to practice it either.
Doug-i think its just his conservative nature, he doesnt want to tear his car up, rather pick em off when things settle down is the way i see it
Doug-or it just deosnt go
jdonovan47-hi all that just joined
jdonovan47-and brad just mentioned bobby!!
izzy47-and of course i missed it...joy...
Doug-just talkin about how they keep the driver cool
Doug-nothing specific about Bobby
jdonovan47-just Brad said how bobby does and the other drivers
mailbox-I'll bet S Wallace wishes he had listened to us last week and gotton himself a Saidhead wig for yesterdays race.
jdonovan47-someones crew cheif was to girly while tring to be tough
jdonovan47-atleast thats what steven said "only girls pull hair so"-Steven Wallace
jdonovan47-hi new people
Doug-haha, someone pulled boris hair? i missed that
mailbox-Steven is........um....not the best at what he does. Bounces off of everybody.
jdonovan47-no stevens dude lol
norain-if i get punted before i want to this is my goodbye for the day lolo
Doug-who pulled his haor?
mailbox-Villeneu (sic) crewchief
jdonovan47-MWR crew chief for Patrick Carpetier
Doug-oic, funny, yeah he pisses a lot of people off
Doug-even his dad said they lost a lot of respect
jdonovan47-Steven Wallace spun the 99 and thats what made him pull his hair
jdonovan47-ask todd same shop he might know his name
norain-yes it was steven getting his hair pulled
norain-i love villinue as a driver and he looked like a real meat head out there too
norain-who is the black anouncer on tv with rusty is he a ex football player ??
norain-on the pre race show
norain-if that helps
mailbox-Hes the d in jtg-d
norain-lol i knew that
izzy47-and really random
norain-so any one know if the 47 is up to speed
Doug-loose, tight, loose
norain-hope they got the handling
mailbox-Typical 1 1/2 mile track
Doug-yup, afraid its not gonna be a great day
Doug-but we might have a shot at something with fuel milage
mailbox-Might get um on fuel.
norain-does waltrip racing tell them set ups when they cant find the handleing or do they keep it to them selves
Doug-they say they sahre notes
Doug-and have like40 different people adding input
Doug-40 engineers or something crazy like that
Doug-or maybe it was 14
Doug-4 something sounds familiar
mailbox-40-14-4 something like that.
Doug-and every week it seems like the 00 or 56 is struggeling too, so i think they probably do share, just can't find it
marac43-I just hope they can get that figured out alittle- I can't stand when were a lap down all day...
mailbox-It'll be a good day if we stay on the lead lap.
Doug-i know, lead lap is like a victory :}
Doug-god, a sliced bread whine fest
Doug-boohoo with the tragedy music and everything
mailbox-"Woe is me"
Doug-had my finger on the remote, waiting for him to cry
izzy47-that would be a tough spot to be in...
Doug-id give it a go
Doug-trd needs a new acronym
mailbox-I hate it for him, but there is about 45 other drivers in the same place
mailbox-Should JTG-D use JGR or TRD parts. Gotta have a dictonary.
Doug-i dont know if we have a horsepower issue, and they are reliable, handling is the bigger issue, than more power after we that sorted out
mailbox-Agreed, havent blown an engine this year I dont think.
Doug-nope, not that i recall
Doug-no mecanical at all this year was there?
Doug-unless we hit something
roll400ex-Hey hey hey
mailbox-Yeah, last year and this year are kinda running together. Cant remember what happened where.
roll400ex-So what's the word on the car today
Doug-the word is freakin
Doug-lots of it
roll400ex-:) that's what I was afraid of
mailbox-Luv those Snickers commericals
Doug-#47 Kingsford Charcoal car was tight on entry and center, loose back to the throttle. Now loose, tight, loose. Trying another adjustment.
JTG Daugherty Racing-http://twitpic.com/69ki5r Bobby signing autographs prior to driver intros
mailbox-The Grand Poobah has arrived
Doug-Bobby_Labonte still too tight through the center, can't carry enough speed. Starts loose then gets too tight as run progresses.
roll400ex-Is there anywhere online or on android phone to watch live stream of race broadcast?
Doug-oops, caught me stealin your wall posts

cali_4_3timewinner-Watch Ol Bandit run today
DeBora-[b]Bummer, hope they can straighten things out today
nate47-well look at this way we got the best driver to have in the car
cali_4_3timewinner-Well one thing they seem to have figured out lately is fuel milage racing. I say race the first 20 like it was the last 20. And take as many as they can
mailbox-Just wish we had a better car.
cali_4_3timewinner-Days not over yet.
nate47-long race they will get it better
mailbox-I command you!!!
nate47-realy starting to like the calls frankies making they will be fine
norain-how many cars does jtg have in its garadge total
jdonovan47-more then TRG
mailbox-Dont think they have 610 , but.....
norain-i meant 6 or 10
jdonovan47-i think they might have about 6-10
jdonovan47-they need atleast two shorttrack
jdonovan47-two 1 1/2 and 2 road and two ss
jdonovan47-they need atleast two for each track type
norain-did ambrose ever do any good short track with jtg ?
mailbox-Dont forget plate.
jdonovan47-Ambrose got p.2 at mville
jdonovan47-in the 47
jdonovan47-but blew a tire in race
norain-hes sure on a roll lately
JTG Daugherty Racing-Bobby pitting in stall #24, by the start finish line. Ryan Newman in front, Trevor Bayne in back.
norain-blowing tires is from over driving bobby is good at not doing that
cali_4_3timewinner-Do you all thing Tony will miss the Chase?
mailbox-Last 2 races play to Ambrose strengths.
JTG Daugherty Racing-Yes, Norain, our short track program was good with marcos as well
jdonovan47-tony will make it
jaa 47-hello all
jaa 47-sucks...just got called into work
jaa 47-gotta be there at 4
JTG Daugherty Racing-We have 14 cars
BillyR-weather looks good.. just a very slight chance of a shower

jdonovan47-14 isnt bad at all
mailbox-....and S Wallace.
norain-thanks for answering that
HughG47-Learn LOTS today that may help you at ATL since I will be at that race.
mrtim-billy must have just looked out his window....again!
jaa 47-i really am looking for a top 20 run
cali_4_3timewinner-Was there a big think tank goin on between yesturday and today, JTGD?
jaa 47-we have struggled on these tracks all year...lets go! wana see some improvement
jaa 47-optimistic about today
JTG Daugherty Racing-Teams meet daily, always trying to find where we are missing
DeBora-[b]Here we go!!!
cherbaer43-Quick question before I return to fighting with Nascar.com. Is anyone else having trouble accessing raceview?
jaa 47-did they just say over the radio...about the car not being any good? haha
jdonovan47-bobby said sorry for not being a better driver reall!!!
norain-whos montoya gonna take out first i say hamlin poor guy lolo
cali_4_3timewinner-Where's Bobby testing next week? Are there more comin?
mrtim-jtg-d does alot still depend on front end geometry?
JTG Daugherty Racing-always will
jdonovan47-he said sorry hes not a better driver... how much better can you be!!
DeBora-[b]Bobby does sound dejected.
47 4 life-heyy all
jaa 47-well noone likes being slow during practice and not a stellar qualifying run either
kamdel -Why is Bobby talking like that I wonder - he needs to stop that!
norain-need little cameras under the front fender when practicing to see how the tires are contacting the road
mailbox-Theres more in this chat room than at the track.
DeBora-[b]That is just how Bobby is. He tends to be negative, but analytical. I think that is because he is a perfectionist.
Doug-yeah. it gets on my nerves too
jaa 47-def how Bobby is
JTG Daugherty Racing-lol, don't hang on every word, keep emotions in check
DeBora-[b]His perfectionism helps him at times get things right and hurts him other times.
kamdel -Thanks Debora, but I still don't like Bobby beating himself down.
Doug-its one thing to be humble but you keep talking yourself down people will start thinking it
DeBora-[b]He just wants things right.
norain-he will be fine when he puts the hammer down and some front guys start sliding back
mrtim-going to be another big strategy day.
cali_4_3timewinner-That's when Frankie needs to be the Cheerleader and Encourager
kamdel -John W is at the race right?
norain-oh gawd my tv went black lol thought it broke
DeBora-[b]I know Kamdel, but that's how our Bobby is. Hopefully, we'll hear him in better spirit later when the car gets better.
JTG Daugherty Racing-self depricating is a form of passive aggressiveness... Trying to get more out of team, not beating himself up...
izzy47-green, green, green flagwave
kamdel -Thanks Debora
Doug-ok, i'll accept that, especially if thats how it is viewed by the team, TY
JWilson47-Hey guys. in just in time!
DeBora-[b]Moved up a position
JWilson47-Keep moving Bobby~
norain-maybe they need to hypnotize him like they do to the gold medel winners in the olympics lo
kamdel -I love....Michigan
DeBora-[b]p30, who jinxed it? ;)
cherbaer43-DeBora is the scanner working?
jaa 47-lap times .5 off of everyone around us
DeBora-[b]Cheryl, yes, Bobby hasn't said anything except he was saying he wishes he were a better driver
cali_4_3timewinner-gooo bobby goooo
jaa 47-back up to speed
jaa 47-8 back of the 31
norain-they should have stole biffels car last nite and switched the numbers with a spray can .lmao
DeBora-[b]Right now they are just counting times and saying high and low and clear. Nothing special
jdonovan47-210 into turn 1
jaa 47-4 back of the 43
norain- is any one elses tv blacking out off and on
DeBora-[b]Norain, wasn't your TV doing that last time?
Doug-nope, feed seems fine

jaa 47-bobby is running down the 43
kamdel-my tv is fine
norain-that was a differnt trailor this one has a dome on the dish
mrtim-no, not here (Directv)
DeBora-[b]Bobby said something about top of the race track
JWilson47-Catching the 21
JTG Daugherty Racing-He is running up top
chris-anyone having issues logging on to trackpass??
JWilson47-Anyone think this will be a fuel mileage race?
JTG Daugherty Racing-If loose, run low, if tight run higher
mrtim-what was bobby's line in practice?
Doug-thats what they say it could be
kamdel -fuel mileage - probably
shirleyd-I cannot log on to scanner
JTG Daugherty Racing-This track has been a fuel mileage track for a while now
Mickey47-Finally made it. Hey everyone!
chris-I cant log onto anything
JWilson47-Yeah I know.
cherbaer43-Yes you have to call an 800 number for temp login. Check on Nascar.comchat room.
DeBora-[b]Talking about some cars ahead of Bobby trying to wreck each other out.
chris-ill try that now thx
norain-soon as comercial ill hit the satilite button and it can retune its self
kamdel -just stay away from JPM for now right
JTG Daugherty Racing-try a different browser or hold down your CTRL key when you click the link
DeBora-[b]Chris, what are you trying to log on to, Trackpass?
norain-got 70% not going to touch it
DeBora-[b]Loose in, tight in the middle, loose off
norain-yup siganl 70 % thta lots
DeBora-[b]I agree with JTG, try a different browser. It only works on IE on my computer
Doug-can i get one of those headsets that calls Bobby directly?
chris-I use IE..Gonna fiddle with a little mow
mailbox-" I thought I told you to stop calling me?"
DeBora-[b]Chris, it IE doesn't work, try Google Chrome
Doug-and i told you to let me ride along and i would quit callin!
norain-oh i finaly found where everyone went from the nascar.com site they went to nascarnationus.com
Doug-yay, sounds like a Jr lovefest
mailbox-Rode around Daytona once. Would love to do it again.
Doug-that must have been a blast
jdonovan47-loose in , tight middle, not as loose off
Doug-one of thos petty experience deal?
mailbox-Want to drive next time.
DeBora-[b]JTG, what did Bobby say? It sounds like the car isn't as bad, but stil not good. Bobby said car doesn't roll
Mickey47-Bobby is running equal speed of the 15 cars in front of him.
JWilson47-I like the Biff's scheme
Doug-whats that blob on the hood?
reuter19-31 backing up to us
DeBora-[b]Turn the right rear fan on
BillyR-since when is kroger on the 17
DeBora-[b]Bobby said he turned it on 5 laps ago
jdonovan47-ithought he said off not on Debora
DeBora-[b]10 laps to a stop
Doug-dont know, but that car is hideous, where as ours was a work of art
DeBora-[b]Donovan, it is possible I misheard him.
BillyR-no idea what that car looks like
BillyR-but gets my vote as the worse paint scheme of the year so far
jdonovan47-IDK i was tring to just see who was right but IDK
Doug-Todd, ant word on the raineater car entry?
jdonovan47-billy thats pretty funny but really it is kinda ugly'\
47 4 life-what p is bobby ?
jdonovan47-ive seen worse
DeBora-[b]Anybody know if Bobby was asked to turn fan on or off?
47 4 life-ohh
BillyR-then whats your pick as the worse so far this year
jdonovan47-no joke but thats one!!
JTG Daugherty Racing-Billy, Kroger is not a "sponsor" in the traditional sense of "sponsors". Just like Target, different brands fund the retailer logos to be on these cars in exchange for bteer in-store displays.
jdonovan47-that 17 is very ugly
DeBora-[b]Tight, tight off, and then snap
BillyR-oh ok got it.. makes sense now
jdonovan47-stil ugly though]
DeBora-[b]4 away from a stop
DeBora-[b]"I don't know what it's going to do from lap to lap, you know?"
cali_4_3timewinner-Is short pitting and fixing the car a good idea right now or bad idea?
Doug-looks like they used whatever leftover decals they had
fred-its me norain it wont let me use norain haha
cali_4_3timewinner-well never mind..lol
jaa 47-2 tires
BillyR-well that helped
jaa 47-need to find track
DeBora-[b]"It could spin out....no grip."
nate47-alright lets go crew track position
JWilson47-Need to fiix the car
nate47-flagwave flagwave flagwave flagwave flagwave flagwave flagwave flagwave
fred-well were not losing
terri-lets go pit crew you can do this
DeBora-[b]I agree, they need to fix that car!
mailbox-Only so much you can do.
Mickey47-Come on crew get us some track position. Y'all are the best! Let's do it!
nate47-so whats the plane
mailbox-De plane boss, de plane.
fred-wonder why when i try to come in it says my name is in use already
DeBora-[b]Nate, Boeing 747
izzy47-[i]let's go crew
nate47-freaking key brd lol
JTG Daugherty Racing-@Bobby_Labonte pitting for 4 tires, 1/2 round down on track bar, air pressure adjustment and pack it full of Sunoco. P-30
BillyR-sure... blame the keyboard
Mickey47-Kingsford flaming fast crew!
jaa 47-lost a spot
DeBora-[b]Sounds like we are making lots of changes. I hope they help
fred-it dont matter what place we are at this point
Doug-just fix it right
mike47 -keep coming down to pack it full
nate47-well 747 might not be a bad idea right now
DeBora-[b]Losing a spot would be worth it if it makes the car much better!
fred-he will move up now and then we start for track possition
Doug-in fact, come back and add more fuel just to worry the other drivers
Doug-we'll make it to the end
DeBora-[b]Did they just say they got 2 tires?
JWilson47-No they got 4
JTG Daugherty Racing-P-29
fred-i got 2 tires right on my stomach lol
JTG Daugherty Racing-He was asking how many other cars took 2
Mickey47-Way to go crew!!! You guys are awesome!!!
mailbox-Those are spares
DeBora-[b]Frank, great job telling Bobby how the other drivers are having the same issues. Bobby seems to relax and focus more on racing when he knows this.
fred-ya a couple under my chin too
Doug-00 and 56 slipped a ton
DeBora-[b]JTG, thanks. I heard him say something about 2. If that car is better AND we have 4 fresh tires over everyone elses 2, that would help
terri-Good job goes out to the Pit Crew
Doug-or maybe it was the 2 tire deal didnt look before
kamdel -think I am going to vote on our pit crew on the AT&T challenge today
fred-what you saying mailbox lift me out of the tanks by my chin roflmao
mailbox-If the car is as bad as he says it is 4 tires is the way to go.
DeBora-[b]Billy, what does the weather look like in Michigan as far as the possibility of us getting rain at the track?
jaa 47-looks like maybe p27
cali_4_3timewinner-Well sounds like everyone is complaining about the same thing out there. Let's out think em Frank n Bobby
Mickey47-Bobby's speeds where the same as p15 back before the caution. He is not the Lone Ranger out there.
fred-i cancled the rain
mrtim-oh no, billyr...darker clouds moving in?
DeBora-[b]I agree Cali
jaa 47-not going green
mailbox-Not going there fred.
cherbaer43-Looks like lots of loose lug nut problems today
terri-their is only a 10% chance of rain their today
norain-there got my proper name back
norain-yeah bat girl
kamdel -hi batgrrl
JTG Daugherty Racing-A few cars ducked down pit road or had penalties, restarting P-24 now.
BillyR-There is a storm off to the NW of the track
JWilson47-about p 24, not the storm. lol
Doug-one more spot
batgrrl-[i]how've been doing?
mailbox-Not too bad
JWilson47-5 wide back by Bobby
JWilson47-99 on pit road
Doug-sad trombone 99
mailbox-Cousin Carl in pits
batgrrl-[i]yeah, not good
DeBora-[b]Bobby will do better knowing the others are stuggling with the same issues as he is. lol
47 4 life-p27
47 4 life-p29
HughG47-Duck feathers in carb
DeBora-[b]So freakin loose
JTG Daugherty Racing-Loose!
jaa 47-same stuff...different week...what else is new
mrtim-wow...99 to garage
Doug-ooops, went the worng way
47 4 life-yeah...
Doug-at least we still racin :)
DeBora-[b]I think freakin loose is worse than just loose, right? lol
Doug-gonna be a lot of freakin today
cherbaer43-That usually proceed the other "F" loose
kamdel-Bobby can hold on to the car
BillyR-Storm moving in from the NW.. may miss the track
DeBora-[b]Cheryl, the other F loose is the worst kind of loose, right? lol
BillyR-going to be close
Mickey47-Loose might be good at the beginning of a long green flag run. It was reported during practice the car kept getting tighter the longer the run.
cherbaer43-You got that right.
mrtim-thanks for the update,billyr
mailbox-I was thinking the same thing Mickey
kamdel -So far, it looks like Biffle has a car
DeBora-[b]No forward drive, loose off
JWilson47-P 29 still
texgal47-[b]no we just passed vickers
mailbox-Never understood "No foward drive"
JTG Daugherty Racing-Michigan known for long green runs, car will tighten on the long runs, or usually does, as the fuel burns off and the attitude of the car changes
BillyR-nascar needs to look into dome tracks no weather can affect them lol.. :p
DeBora-[b]What did Bobby just say?
JWilson47-retractable dome. lol
mailbox-Just the CO2.
cbr01tj-haha yeah billyr
texgal47-[b]no way billy! the fumes would kill ya!
JTG Daugherty Racing-mailbox, can't get into the gas coming off the corners because you think the rear end will break loose if you step on gas too early
BillyR-I know that..
JWilson47-Throw the kitchen sink at it next stop.
norain-buddy coming for a visit why do they do that during a race
DeBora-[b]Billy, what about all the exhaust in the dome tracks? lol
mailbox-That would be the other F loose.
BillyR-well how do the monster trucks race inside places
JTG Daugherty Racing-Bristol is as close as we get to a domed track and the fumes are aweful, but it is great racing and my favorite track
jdonovan47-there big places
texgal47-[b]they are not going 200 mph and no big engines
DeBora-[b]I don't know, never been to a monster truck race and don't know about their horsepower. Just something I was thinking about.
BillyR-they still give off co2
cherbaer43-The monster trucks make lots of stinky exhaust. By the time u leave you cant breath
jdonovan47-there big buildings!!
norain-a visit during a race is about as much fun as a red headed step child
cbr01tj-whatttt??? theyre making like 1500 horse right?
cbr01tj-maybe 1200 lol
Doug-been to monster truck, was really dusty, didnt notice the fumes
Coleman Pressley-hey all
JTG Daugherty Racing-giant exhaust systems circulate the air at those events
DeBora-[b]They could make domes and make vents on the sides. That might work
Dr.Kennethnoisewater-Chili bowl is indoors
BillyR-oh.. thanks JTG
BillyR-I was wondering how they did that
cbr01tj-whats up CP
norain-just put a propeler tower at the top like they use in cherry orchards to keep the water off the cherries
DeBora-[b]What did Bobby just say about his car?
JTG Daugherty Racing-Do all of you follow Coleman on Twitter? He is pretty proud of his growing list
Coleman Pressley-watching the race doing some iracing
DeBora-[b]Sorry, I don't do Twitter
JWilson47-clouds look dark
DeBora-[b]"So freakin loose, cannot pass..."
cherbaer43-I do and really like his tweets
reuter19-JTG is that rain coming towards the track?
Aggie94-I follow him too
BennyJr-freakin freakin freakin
HughG47-Yes, following CP
BillyR-rain is nearing the track
izzy47-tho he tweets kinda late sometimes..
JTG Daugherty Racing-mean clouds, no rain though
BillyR-couple storms off the the NW
mailbox-Mean looking cloud
norain-well im gonna scoot talk to you later bye
Coleman Pressley-hahaha i do tweet late
DeBora-[b]Billy, that is what my hubby just said and that it might build this afternoon. I hope we don't have a short race
JTG Daugherty Racing-bye norain
Coleman Pressley-good news i just won a iracing race at mis
izzy47-yes...i will have to start turning my phone off haha...jk
cbr01tj-my pass us right?
mailbox-Now he leaves us
Doug-thats what racers do, stay up all night on iracing and tweet
JTG Daugherty Racing-clouds and cooler temp will halp tighten Bobby up a bit
BillyR-No they would have time to dry the track off
izzy47-how's the foosball stuff going?
cali_4_3timewinner-come on bobby get that 83 you can do it
DeBora-[b]Billy, what if the clouds behind this build?
Doug-eeee 83 is scary
reuter19-well it looks like yout going to get hit by a small rain cell, not enough to rain it out though
Doug-almost as bad as the 42
BennyJr-so who are we ahead of, p 36 on back is off the track,ughhhhhhh
BillyR-possible but nothing rightn ow
DeBora-[b]I am crossing my fingers that they don't build
47 4 life-ohh
batgrrl-[i]even Carl uses fanview ;)
Doug-[i]maybe we need a longer run to see whats going on
Doug-[i]ooops, not the TV time we wanted
reuter19-I think shes lose
47Fan-Well... Not the Yellow I was hoping for :(
JWilson47-Were going to go a lap down.
cherbaer43-That is the other kind of loose
47 4 life-nice
BillyR-nice save bobby
czajicek-maybe hes a little loose...
DeBora-[b]This is what freakin loose looks like
kamdel -nice driving Bobby
reuter19-your doing about 200 right there
mike47 -tv time!!
jaa 47-bobby is great
jaa 47-cars not so much
BennyJr-freakin freakin freakin
texgal47-[b]fenders not blown off?
cali_4_3timewinner-I'm not surprised. Was holding my breath.
BillyR JTG- let me guess the car was a little loose? lol
mike47 -did we lose a lap?
DeBora-[b]Sounds like they are trying to stay on the lead lap
reuter19-nope stayed on lead lap
47Fan-Still lead lap
47Fan-We need to make a big swing at it
DeBora-[b]Going to do a little bit each time around to stay on lead lap.
texgal47-[b]the best driver...got to the pits without blowing the fenders off!
marac43-Risky way to show off the sponsors there Bob...
reuter19-putting rubber in left rear and track bar down
texgal47-[b]Bobby is the Man
DeBora-[b]Bobby is asking about the tires
Doug-could have been a Jr caution...nah Bobby wouldnt do that
DeBora-[b]Bobby pitting each time around to try to stay on the lead lap. No damage to tires
nate47-gd call top it off to
JTG Daugherty Racing-Ducked down pit road for tires, then pitted again to add spring rubber and make another track bar adjustment, fill it with fuel. Still on lead lap, car is fine.
esanchez-we still got 3/4 of race
Mickey47-For those out there that think Bobby doesn't push the limits of the car. Well he just did.
DeBora-[b]JTG, well said in few words! flagwave
47 4 life-well good caution then lol
reuter19-bobby sounds pissed
DeBora-[b]Bobby, said, be cool for just a minute. When I spun out, I was trying to miss the wall.
JTG Daugherty Racing-P-32
DeBora-[b]I think Bobby succeeded.
cali_4_3timewinner-I've seen Bobby spin early in races and come back for a Top 20 or close to it. Race not over yet
JTG Daugherty Racing-3/4 of race to go
mailbox-far from it
DeBora-[b]I don't think Bobby sounds mad but rather trying to think about what they did and what they need to do or rather planning.
reuter19-rememberin 04, cut a hole in the oil pan and pitted fixed it and then finished third
BennyJr-then he needs more limits to push
BennyJr-not bashing, heartbroken
msnascar47-He did get the sponsor some air time --
DeBora-[b]Yes, he did get air time. lol
BL47-i think Bobby just has accepted that the cars are 30th place pieces of equipment
47 4 life-look those clouds
DeBora-[b]Billy, they are talking about this might miss the track. What do you think?
BL47-each week same old stuff
reuter19-JTG is the track all in shade now?
batgrrl-[i]but when they showed some of the racing scenes before the spin, they had a nice shot of Bobby :)
BennyJr-BL47, I agree
BillyR-theres a chance it will miss the track
BL47-hence why he does not get too mad
BL47-he knows he cant run better
BillyR-its going tobe close
BL47-there is no potential to even run better
BL47-its the truth
JTG Daugherty Racing-I can't see whole track, we see the cars for 3 seconds then watch the rest on TV until they come around again.
BL47-but it is what it is
BennyJr-but dont like it, and I know JTG wants better, I just want it NOW, and know that it takes time
jaa 47-lets go
DeBora-[b]Hubby is thinking that this might miss the track. He said something about a gap.
reuter19-shes good for a lap
texgal47-[b]they said rain should go by quickly and see entire race today
JTG Daugherty Racing-BL47, you are right. On Monday we are going to shut the doors. We have peaked, time to do something else. Sorry everyone, we are going to stop working, put our collective tail between our legs and quit.
mailbox-You tell em!!!
texgal47-[b]lol...you tell em JTG. No negitivity here
kamdel-it is early as we say - time is on our side to improve
DeBora-[b]JTG, it appears that is what some so-called "fans" think.
esanchez-there's always a negative-fan
esanchez-that's sad, we cheer for the same team
JTG Daugherty Racing-If you don't have a glass half full mentality you don't need to be in this business.
BL47-there is a difference between negativity and the what is actually happening
47 4 life-yeah always lol
reuter19-It just hurts to see bobby not get the finishes he deserves
kamdel-Like Bobby with JTG-D. Great team and sponsors and used to love watching Brad at UNC and the NBA so I am a JTG-D fan thank you.
47 4 life-p27
DeBora-[b]p27 and climbing
mike47 -lets get up into that pack bobby!!
Mickey47-I'm with you all the way JTG D!!!
esanchez-man, is the first year with the team, what do you expect... making a top10 every week?
BL47-all i said is we have a 25-30th place car today...never did i say anyone is quitting
mailbox-BL47 the race isnt over yet
47Fan-Bit better this run, finally moving forward! Looks like that last Adjustment worked!
reuter19-from watching the radar I think a small cell is going to hit them, I'm no weather man though
DeBora-[b]He went to the last car on the lead lap to 9 from the last of the lead lap
JWilson47-Catching the 56
terri-I think that the team is doing great for being a new team,so keep up the good work JTG Racing!!!!
jdonovan47-new team terri?
47 4 life-lol
terri-he is with a new team this year
jdonovan47-new team for him
47Fan-It seems as though all MWR teams have struggled this year, not the same they were last year
47 4 life-well he is rigth
terri-yes for him
jdonovan47-this team has been around for years
DeBora-[b]Is it just me or does Frank's voice seem more excited than usual?
terri-new to Bobby is what I am saying
jaa 47-looks like the adjustments have helped
jaa 47-catching the 29
reuter19-Michael will straighten it out during the off-season
batgrrl-[i]I've got commercials...
nate47- whats the lap speeds
Mickey47-There is plenty of hard work and determination going on at JTG D.
BennyJr-mailbox, what do you do for a living, I admire your patience... I am too, and I'm supportive, I just wish we could see some improvement, but I do continue to believe, bc I hear Tad on the radio, and he knows, and wants better and sounds very committed. I love the team and how they include us almost as part of the team, but to jump on BL47 isn't fair. Sometimes reality is hard, and we're not running the best. I have made a few comments and been fussed at by some of you, but it makes me no less of a fan. I just try to discuss it among us fans...
jaa 47-nevermind i misred the time back
47Fan-Yea, seems like Mikey is changing things up, theyve moved a few people the last couple weeks!
jdonovan47-ifspeeds are 176.1 to the le3aders 178
esanchez-with a good finish today we could climb spots on standings :)
47Fan-Definitly better this run
jdonovan47-leader 178.6 bobby 175.9
JWilson47-Good run this time
BL47-BennyJr im just stating what i see
BL47-not painting a different picture
BL47-no fun...seeing my favorite driver run the 20's each week
47 4 life-p27
DeBora-[b]Oh geeze, can we PLEASE focus on the positives of our racing team, PLEASE!
mailbox-BennyJr the race isnt over. The year isnt over. Maybe he doesnt do well today, maybe he does fine. I dont like putting the team down when they are working their A$$ off.
cali_4_3timewinner-what's up withj the 56, JTGD?
jdonovan47-need it for bristol next week
JaBee47-well, now we know what to do,,Bibbty needs to spin so they can make changes..
DeBora-[b]Loose in, light in the middle, loose off
terri-I am with you Debora
jdonovan47-car will be fast just need luck
Mickey47-Be calm and race on
jaa 47-no grop
jdonovan47-the short track program is awsome
DeBora-[b]No grip, running low
mrtim-freakin' computer...lost server connection. Freakin' junk!!
cbr01tj-all im saying is the race isnt over until its over. Especially over the past few weeks when on the last pit stop we made awesome calls and got to the front. thats my .02 cents
jdonovan47-lol 0.002 cents
DeBora-[b]Rain mist is here
jdonovan47-not even 2 cents
BLAB47-the 56 car sucks too
jaa 47-is it me or is this race literally flying by
jaa 47-on pace for under 3 hours
BLAB47-the whole mwr program is no good
BennyJr-Being positive is important, feeling bad because of you know that they are busting their behind isn't bad is it? I want better for them!
DeBora-[b]Frank sounds upbeat and motivated. Come on Bobby, focus on the car, who you will pass, the Frank's voice!
cherbaer43-Maybe with JGR and TRD working together all the engines will get better
DeBora-[b]Benny, what you typed made no sense.
JTG Daugherty Racing-BACK TO THE RACE
sherm43-Whoo were up to 27 th
BennyJr-Why not? You can be positive and feel bad because they are working so hard and struggling.
nate47-how is the car holding now
marac43-Are we taking two when we pit???
JaBee47-looks to me like Bobby is gaining on Vickers.3
BillyR-Storm is starting to fall apart to the NW... still might have a few sprinkles
BennyJr-wanting the work to pay off!
DeBora-[b]PLEASE Benny, please, the race, PLEASE. It is getting too depressing in here.
JTG Daugherty Racing-haven't made that call yet marac
jaa 47-see i really dont think its an engine issue
DeBora-[b]Billy, yay!!! Thanks for the good news
jaa 47-the engines have been reliable
jaa 47-its the setups...we get the setups down and we will improve...just keep on working
DeBora-[b]"Have we helped you any?"
DEREALTOR-I think its the set up more then anything
mailbox-BTW, Ive been a fan since 2001. Went thru JGR, Petty, Yates(sellouts) and TRG (oh boy). This is the first time in a looooooong time i have been excited about the season.
DeBora-[b]"It is hard to say."
JTG Daugherty Racing-Engines are reliable. When we gat to bolt on the JGR carbs and modify headers we will see a hp gain
DeBora-[b]Mailbox, I am excited too.
jaa 47-talked to quic
jaa 47-Motor giving up
BLAB47-is booby back with jtg next year?
JaBee47-Benny...a year ago Bobby was having to use Champs provisional just to get in races....and then had to S&P in a bunch of races...we are so far ahead of last year it is not worth comparin
reuter19-motor is giving out
DeBora-[b]"I don't know. Feels like the motor gives up on the back straight away."
mrtim-yes, throw a couple bags of "kingsford" in the trunk to stabilize the rearend next stop!:}
DeBora-[b]"Big head wind there, Bobby, so driving in the wind."
jaa 47-i totally just jinxed uis
DeBora-[b]JaBee, very good point!
cherbaer43- did Frank say when Bobby said it was giving up
JTG Daugherty Racing-no, he is not saying the motor is blowing up, he feels like he is giving away ground that is all
DeBora-[b]I didn't hear Frank say anything. He just said something but his radio was scratchy
jaa 47-gotya JTG
texgal47-[b]ty JTG for reliable info.
DeBora-[b]I get the impression that they stratagizing for the next pit stop
JaBee47-only three seconds between Bobby and P*21
jaa 47-our lap times are comprable to eveyonie
jaa 47-we gotta gamble
jaa 47-make up some stops
texgal47-[b]dang what is kurt dragging?
mike47-wow the 56 dropped fast
Mickey47-I predict Biffle blows his car up before the end of the race. He is running his car harder than he has to.
mailbox-Either that or hes just that fast
texgal47-[b]No, they are wrong. Bobby was the save of the day.
JaBee47-I bet the Dinger remembers that wall next time
47 4 life-yeah
nate47-how did the dinger get the save of the day that belongs to bobby not hitting anything
jaa 47-Piece of crap car
DEREALTOR-piece of crap car
jaa 47-is what bobby just said
texgal47-[b]like I said they are wrong....Bobby was the save of the day
DeBora-[b]"I don't know what to tell you. Piece of crap car!"
mailbox-Bobbys not the latest poster child
47 4 life-well that souns bad
texgal47-[b]No Brad is the new poster child.
jaa 47-pit this time
DeBora-[b]Pit this time
sherm43-Jtg will Bobby be back next year
DeBora-[b]I just report what I hear.
texgal47-[b]a lot of cars are pitting now
kamdel -pr focuses on the young drivers - but we are here now to prove that things are different! Be happy you are a Bobby Labonte/JTG-D fan.
DEREALTOR-wouldn't' you be negative.... same thing week after week
mrtim-too much race left. too much yet to happen. hang in there!!
mailbox-Dont start that again
jdonovan47-wait till next week the short tracks are awsome for jtg d
cherbaer43-I don't think he is negative, just frustrated
DeBora-[b]Bobby is a perfectionist and focuses on what needs work, so it appears that he is negative.
DEREALTOR -Yes I agree frustration
2001MUgrad-pitted kind of early both the 47 and 56. Would have thought they would get better mileage than most
DeBora-[b]Bobby is also hard on himself. He is frustrated and wants to do better.
jl1718-some here say the same thing were negative, Bobby says the same thing he's fustrated. Thats called a double standard.
DeBora-[b]This part of the race makes me nervous. I cannot wait until everyone pits and we are no longer a lap down.
BLAB47-they need to sneek some nitrious i the tank
Doug-still can make out what that blob on biffs hood is
JaBee47-Obviously Bobby felt they needed to do some work on the car.,,,so why wait...just jope we dont get hurt like last week by a caution
jdonovan47-there are wavearounds though Debora
DeBora-[b]That is true Donovan
cbr01tj-i think its michigane doug? idk
Doug-looks like the spilled a can of yellow paint on it
mrtim-billyr..we good to go w/o rain?
JaBee47-isnt that a penalty of the 48
izzy47-yes it's a pic of michigan
2001MUgrad-no RR can be outside the line
BLAB47-should be a penalty
cherbaer43-only the front tires have to be in pit stall
BillyR-yes maybe a sprinkle or 2
DeBora-[b]Did they penalize the 48? I didn't think they ever penalized him
HughG47-48 looked like one of my parking jobs
JaBee47-they said it was legal for one tire to be out...
mrtim-we can live with that, billyr, for sure
JaBee47-it looks to me like the rain split and went to the east and west...and missed the track
DeBora-[b]1 tire can be out? Did the rules used to state no tires could be out?
mike47-slow stop for us?
mailbox-Thats what I thought
2001MUgrad-Vortex effect in full force today
jl1718-rule never said that
DeBora-"About to spin out is what I am going to do."
nate47-lally gets gd milage
HughG47-RR tire can be out
sherm43-We pit strategy to get up front, that's what other good teams do
Leonray-The 18 and 71 have the same sponsor?
jdonovan47-nate i think everyone could stay out that long just no one would
DeBora-Hum...now I have to look it up. lol
jdonovan47-because they are samrt
esanchez-different work area
jdonovan47-the 71 isnt
JWilson47-No, the 71 us like Interstate Moving Services ir simehting like that
jaa 47-hes angry now
DeBora-[b]"so freakin loose!"
jdonovan47-"so freaking loose"
roll400ex-So what's going on with the race and bobby at work with no radio or tv
BLAB47-thanks for the quotes Debora
reuter19-bobby is screaming its "loose".
2001MUgrad-WOW show the 71 car leading for 3 laps then go to commercial when there is a battle for the lead
jaa 47-i dont care how anyone wants to cover it up
jaa 47-he is pissed now
DeBora-[b]"IT ain't the freakin tires!"
reuter19-yeah, hes pissed
mrtim-good milage because they drive slow (71)
2001MUgrad-Is Bobby gonna pull a Cole Trickle this week?
cherbaer43-He is using his angry voice
DeBora-[b]I looked it up: "A car is legally in the pit stall if both left side tires and the right front tire are inside the box."
mike47-getting into lap down territory
DeBora-[b]Learn something new every day
reuter19-JTG whats going on, on top of the pit box to fix this thing
reuter19-David Green just said thst thing is loose
JaBee47-how many seconds ahead of the leader is Bobby....
mike47-need a yellow now
DeBora-[b]33.9 behind the leader
reuter19-its bad when the spotter is telling the crew chief what the car is doing
esanchez-bobby on LD spo
mailbox-Caution dance everybody!!!
reuter19-but 6 or 7 second in front of the leader
2001MUgrad-should get laped probably in about 5 to 10 laps depending on lap times
JaBee47-Kvapil is 40 seconds behind....and last car on the lead lap
batgrrl-[i]yeah, we need a caution
DeBora-[b]We need a caution
DeBora-[b]...before we get lapped
JaBee47-Kvapil is now a lap down...
reuter19-just dont be the caution again
BLAB47-if dale jr were close to a lap down there would be a caution
DeBora-[b]41.80 on the 00 car
DeBora-[b]"About to spin out again."
reuter19-well he said hes about to spin out again
jdonovan47-almost spun again
cali_4_3timewinner-Gotta realize too, Bobby is still getting used to this Toyota. Even last year with all his switches, they were all Chevy xcept for the 7. I'm sure there's some differences and they don't get to test, until now
marac43-the car sucks in the sun i guess
47 4 life-bobby ?
47 4 life-good
DeBora-[b]True Cali, and Bobby is a kenesthetic driver and the feel of the car is important
mrtim-yea debora, we alrady did are part for a caution. about time jpm spun or bounced off the wall, or another car!
reuter19-racing gods are looking over bobby today
DeBora-[b]"How about some wedge dude?"
nate47-throw the bath tub at it the kitchen sink didnt work
reuter19-ouch, bobby just yelled at Frankie
BLAB47-somebody wreck please
DeBora-[b]Frank wants to wait, having troubles
BillyR-called frankie dude.. lol
chris-dang I wish my trackpass would work.. I'm lost without it
DeBora-[b]"I know I am really loose though."
reuter19-well theyre throwing some change at it
mailbox-Is "dude" worse than 2 "F" word?
DeBora-[b]JTG, please tell us what the changes are going to be. Something about taking wedge out and air pressure adjustments.
reuter19-Rubber in left rear and left rear wedge
jdonovan47-i know their adding wedge
bruzer-chris use email@example.com and donotchange for password
BLAB47-stay out and dont pit!!
Doug-could make a drinking game out of freaking and loose
cali_4_3timewinner-I like when Bobby's a lil ticked, seems to talk more firmer with Frank. not just accept what Frank keeps callin out
Doug-we'd be hammered
cherbaer43-Chris be sure to log out of your account before you try it.
JaBee47-Bobby is last car on lead lap...so take time and get it right
chris-I'll try that bruzer
DeBora-[b]I orefer Bobby happy and excited because he is winning and passing. I want to see THAT Bobby today!
mailbox-Doug I'm in
mrtim-too funny, doug!lol
mike47-did we take 2
czajicek-If i didnt have to work after the race id be in to lol
reuter19-beat the 21 and 56
BLAB47-there short tracks seem quick just run them here
nate47-mm took to tires last to stops for pos the tires must hold up gd
reuter19-bobby said he was looser that run then the run he spun out
DeBora-[b]"When I spun out, it really wasn't that loose. It is now more lose." Frank says he is obviously learning how to hold on to it.
Mickey47-The pit crew is having to work extra hard today. Way to go guys!
reuter19-Frankie is pissing me off, Ohh looks like your learning to hold on to the car. Well if you would fix it he would have to hold on to it.

DeBora-[b]Is Todd the one behind JTG today?
Mickey47-I know Tad does. He is a great owner. He evens cooks for y'all. Great guy.
DeBora-[b]Nate running high or low has to do with being tight or loose
JaBee47-ok..back to P26
chris-Thanks Bruzer seems to be working for now
BLAB47-the 00, 47, 56 are 25th thru 27th

chris-everyone is running times really close together
DeBora-[b]Bobby's got to watch for Bayne as he is catching up
2001MUgrad-Bobby is running about .2 or .3 faster if not more than he was earlier

BLAB47-i love dj
DeBora-[b]"Well not bad I guess....freakin..." Anybody want to add to that?
2001MUgrad-HAHA you haven't heard of the crew guys Hamlin has had fired then
DeBora-[b]"Drop the right rear a little bit."
jdonovan47-he said freaking dont touch it i guess
norain-so my tv and internet problems are coming from bad weather in toronto
JaBee47-.Ok...get your big boy boots on Crew....we need a perfect stop here
cherbaer43-"Just don't touch it probably"
DeBora-[b]Bobby said not much of anything. I think you guys are right in that Bobby doesn't want them to touch it
Mickey47-So right mrtim!
jdonovan47-[b]"dont touch it i guess" is what he said
batgrrl-[i]we're about to pit?
chris-take another shot at an adjustment. see if we can get a top 15-20
norain-well he is moving up slowly
DeBora-[b]"A little snug up off, but that's about it."
mailbox-"Dont touch it I guess" I LOVE IT!
chris-pit this time
DeBora-[b]Bat, pitting this time
batgrrl-[i]so, we need a caution to pull everyone together
BLAB47-remember when hamlin and kyle petty went at it in dover?
Mickey47-The car has been the best it has been all day.
DeBora-[b]I was hoping for a caution BEFORE we pitted.
Mickey47-Let's go crew!!!
DeBora-[b]I agree, the car has been the best all day! 47Fan must be out of the room. lol
norain-well its a good time to start being good
JWilson47-Were in this time

jdonovan47-got em p.22
kamdel -I texted the 47 crew to the AT&T survey anyway
cali_4_3timewinner-47 n 56 should do a lil draftin together n pick some off.
GoBobby47-WOW! NASCAR47's most recent tweet says "Bobby doesn't want any adjustments"!
DeBora-[b]Where did JTG go? Still dealing with luggage?
mrtim-maybe I'm on an island, this is why i'm not in favor of shortening the pocono races. I like endurance, ability to adjust the car, and strategy. I may be wrong, guess we"ll find out in 2012
47Fan-Great stop gained like 4 Secconds on the 21 and everyoneelse, also a nice stop by the 56, good job MWR Pit Crews!
kamdel -Our team should not be ignored so much
norain-i hate that the 47 is ignored
2001MUgrad-They did not gain 4 seconds on anyone come on
Leonray-We are putting down some good lap times
esanchez-i'ts ok, tv just focus on the top10 drivers
norain-they do comercials during qualifing runs they would never do that to carl or jj

mailbox-I wish I were. Does that count?
JWilson47-Me, im 16

DeBora-[b]Interesting, some of you act older for your age and some act younger. Just sayin.
reuter19-Bobby is catching the 43
GoBobby47-It's GREAT to have some young Bobby fans!
chris-I'm 34 and act 12 does that count
batgrrl-[i]it's good to see all you young fans here :)
landon47-Debora I'm sure you knew my age lmao
esanchez-i'm 23 and act like 12 too
nate47-wonder how shrt pitting wld work
DeBora-[b]No, just saying that telling the room that Bobby got a speeding penalty was something I would figure from a teen or young adult. lol
esanchez-the difference is that now i work, when i was 12 i didn't lol
cali_4_3timewinner-My body is 42 I look younger than 32. My mind is about 22. lolol
jdonovan47-im 14 15 this year but...
JWilson47-within a second of the Dinger
DeBora-[b]Yeah Landon, I know your age.
GoBobby47-too early to short pit
czajicek-Bobbys picked up about a 1/2 sec on dinger this run
JTG Daugherty Racing-going to pit as soon as we are in fuel window nate
DeBora-[b]Keep picking up speed Bobby!
DeBora-[b]"Tight in the center, 1 and 2"

JWilson47-Whats the fuel window JTG?
Doug-i hope its really close for everyone except us
GoBobby47-it's Michigan-it's always a fuel mileage race!
47 4 life-i am 16 from puerto rico soo and love bobby all my life

JTG Daugherty Racing-can't give that up at this stage of the race JW
mailbox-Doug, I hope they all run out except us.
GoBobby47-In June, Bobby had to get a push, under caution, from Reutimann!
batgrrl-[i]we just need track position now
czajicek-I think it would look pretty good up front
mrtim-44 and think i'm under 21 @ times!! wouldn't trade it, though!!lol
BLAB47-the 00 looks fast early but now he is 30th
mike47 -is JTG the same person each week or are there a few people using the name?
DeBora-[b]In that case JTG, your pit window might be narrower than you think. lol
jdonovan47-dinger 175.1 bobby 175.5
Doug-i was talking to a Jr fan last night, reliving his last lap run out
JTG Daugherty Racing-I usually handle race days but several of us pitch in
Doug-told her how we were rolling
Doug-in our chat
GoBobby47-why would ANYONE talk to a Jr fan?
Doug-i know someonee would say that

JTG Daugherty Racing-43 is better on entry
DeBora-[b]Izzy, my sister is a Junior fan

JWilson47-Almsot got him

mailbox-Yall need to disown some people
GoBobby47-I agree mailbox
cherbaer43-"Little snug, not too bad"
DeBora-[b]"A little snug, a little snug."
batgrrl-[i]she's a fan because jr's an average driver
mrtim-izzy47better staighten him out! ha,ha
landon47-Just saw a RIR commercial!!!!! Can't wait, only a couple weeks!!!
JTG Daugherty Racing-got him
JWilson47-There we go guys!
JWilson47-40 to go
batgrrl-[i]we need a caution to pull everyone back together
DeBora-[b]He has a ways to catch the 78
GoBobby47-come to Papa, Regan!
landon47-Go gettem BOYS!!!!!!!
chris-i said that JTG. beat ya..ha ha
nate47-what is our window
JWilson47-About 1.5 seconds behind the 78
jaa 47-way to come around today
cherbaer43-1.5 seconds behind 78
esanchez-great comeback so far
GoBobby47-Frankie's made some GREAT adjustments today!
DeBora-[b]Now we've got to stay ahead of the 43 and catch up to the 78!
landon47-Steps in the right direction!!!!!
esanchez-i wasn't wrong when i said that we got 3/4 of the race yet
cherbaer43-Go away Dinger
Christine_in_Texas-Don't worry Batgrrl. You know Na$car will throw cautions between now and the green flag. Mrs. Terry DeBris may make an appearance.
cali_4_3timewinner-finally got the 43 that a boy Cool Hands
2001MUgrad-Its a shame it took so long to get the car dialed in. Could have had a chance at a top 15 otherwise
mrtim-JTG Daugherty Racing this is what I really like about this team..never a lack of effort!
nate47-not over yet
mailbox-Race isnt over yet
kamdel-right - not over yet
JWilson47-Clean air again
BLAB47-00 a lap down
Christine_in_Texas-Bobby's running 174's lap-speed. Leader is running 176's.
esanchez-and clean race so far
JTG Daugherty Racing-This is exactly why we shouldn't write off the team after 50 laps of the race. We can improve the car, it is not the same thing every week... We aren't content. I miss BL47.
nate47-wonbder why they cant mention bobbys spin and now running gd
Doug-better lock the notes up tonight, 00 and 56 are gonna be snoopin
JTG Daugherty Racing-43 is now 1.4 seconds back
landon47-YOU GUYS CAN DO IT! I'll never give up on you guys, I have said that all along!
JWilson47-How far behind the 78?
GoBobby47-Maybe there should be a little more sharing of notes!
brit47-yes, LN you have :)
jdonovan47-1 more lap till pitting
JTG Daugherty Racing-Green flag stop next time by
2001MUgrad-No doubt JTG, but its much easier to adjust when you start in the ballpark than when you start way off. Easier to get it right making smaller adjustments and walking it in. Big swings can go either way
BLAB47-i hope they all share notes
mrtim-JTG Daugherty Racing never do and never will!! bobby has a great style and seldom takes himself out of a race!:}
Leonray-We are catching smith
chris-maybe a caution for 36 car
BLAB47-do all three teams share all of the notes?
mike47 -what happened to 36
BLAB47-all being the key word
Doug-i dont know about all, but they share
chris-out of gas
DeBora-[b]Okay, now would be an excellant time for a caution!
JTG Daugherty Racing-no doubt 2001, we didn't say we have it figured out yet, but we are a work in progress. We aren't racing for one season, we are building a team that wants to race for a long time.
landon47-There a caution or we coming in?
mike47 -so are we waiting to pit?
GoBobby47-only problem, is none of the 3 MWR cars are running particularily great to share with
chris-good call chris..lol
DeBora-[b]"I saw the caution a long time before you did!"
batgrrl-[i]are we still on the track?
bruzer-he sounds happy for once
jaa 47-Bobby is happy!!!!
DeBora-[b]"It's whole lot faster than freakin loose!"
mrtim-2001MUgrad just think, next year, they could start w/ these notes and unload faster!
jaa 47-whole lot freaking faster than loose
BillyR-they waited to throw the caution till the 48 pitted BS
chris-he likes a tighter cat I think
2001MUgrad-they could if Bobby is back.
JWilson47-Whats the call?
GoBobby47-too bad, Blaney deserves better
2001MUgrad-00 is LD
jdonovan47-but blaney has a full time ride atleast
DeBora-[b]4 tires and fuel!
landon47-You guys can do IT!!!!! The best ever
2001MUgrad-So does Andy Lally if either count
terri-JTG is Bobby gonna be back with y'all next year?
DeBora-[b]I could NOT breathe while everyone was pitting!

BLAB47-looked like a good stop
mrtim-2001MUgrad true...looks like a Great parnership thus far. Notice, starting to be better the last several weeks. not racing 1lap down anymore!!
GoBobby47-Not luck JTG, GOOD CALL to stretch
2001MUgrad-wiat a second. How the heck did the 48 stay on the lad lap there?
landon47-GO GETTEM BOYS!!!!!!!!!!!!
Leonray-I thought we pitted aleady?
marac43-That was a great pit stop!
cali_4_3timewinner-Good restart now Bobby
landon47-You are the greatest!!!!!!
Christine_in_Texas-25 cars on the lead lap right now
DeBora-[b]We didn't pit early but were planning to until we saw that we might have a caution.
JWilson47-I thought 15? Is it 16?
nate47-now do we have to save or can bobby drive the wheels off
terri-Way to go team 47
DeBora-[b]Trackpass showing p16
Christine_in_Texas-with the wave-arounds, 27 cars on the LL now

terri-Go getem bobby you can do this
JWilson47-Did we make any adjustments
BillyR-lets get a top 15
DeBora-[b]1 to go
Mickey47-Talking about negativity and things said about the team has anybody else been defriended or blocked by most of the Bobby Labonte Fan Page friends besides me. You know the place where everyones opinons are welcomed and everyone is respected. NOT! Not if your opinon is positive about the team. Even the moderators defriended me.
JWilson47-Alright, hopefully we can hold it up there.
DeBora-[b]Let's go for a top 10, am I being too hopeful?
Mickey47-Great job crew. You are awesome!!!
landon47-this is why I will never give up on this team, they try there hearts out each and everyweek! I knew we were heading in the right direction and now all the hard work is paying off, GO GETTEM TEAM 47 YOU ARE THE GREATEST!!!!

DeBora-[b]Time to hold our breaths again and hold on for the ride!
Leonray-amazing we were able to turn the car around.
Mickey47-I have always been nice DeBora.
esanchez-wherever we end up today, team did a GREAT race and proved that is getting together
Doug-fine time for my TV to act up
nate47-look at that little pace car looks like one of my sons hotwheels
cherbaer43-Right on esanchez
chris-got to get lined out here
esanchez-sorry for my english, im chilean
Christine_in_Texas-No, Mickey. I have too much respect for Bobby and his team. There's already enough negativity out in the world. Why would I, as a fan of a great man, want to treat him or his team poorly? It's not my place nor is it my right to ever do that.
Doug-got a TV glipmse, GO BOBBY\
JWilson47-Got to get into a green glag run
Mickey47-It's okay esanchez
BLAB47-there will be a wreck

OKCowpoke-long ways down there, close to bobby's home town!
mrtim-what is our pts pos?

OKCowpoke-gotta go everyone. It was a good day, gained some points and momentum for next weak. Should be a top ten with a clean race.
JaBee47-Bobby is still 29th in the standing...five points behind Vickers in 28th

JaBee47-21 is Truex at 603....not going to happen
cali_4_3timewinner-Think 25 teams get Bonus $$. Would be so cool if we could work up to there

gwjames47-Did someone say next year we are getting some engine parts from JGR
mrtim-izzy47 Dinner??? fire up the Grill!lol
mrtim-gwjames47 did not here that, and that means nothing!
gwjames47-Okay, I think someone said something about using their carbs and intake manifolds, maybe just a rumor
gwjames47-Next year I thought we were going to fuel injection anyway
mrtim-gwjames47 this is true, I wonder if how much jgr will share with jtgd and or trd
gwjames47-Who knows, I have always wondered how our horspower stacks up to the other teams.
GoBobby47-Finishing order updated - Bobby finishes 15th
mrtim-it doesn't seem to match up w/ jgr. reliability seems good, but HP seems to be a tick of
gwjames47-What caused the move up by one spot?
mrtim-not sure, watching espn, still seeing p16
gwjames47-So we edged out Vickers, nascar.com had Vickers .004 ahead of us I think
mrtim-GoBobby47 clue us in!
mrtim-whey...dale jr not happy!
mrtim-that was whoh....i don't what the heck, jr mad @00 "slow as heck" on restart
gwjames47-For some reason getting moved up to P15 sounds a lot better.
GoBobby47-NASCAR reviewed the finishing order - just came through as a tweet
GoBobby47-"photo finish" - lol
mrtim-NIIIIICE.....p15 officially "unaficiall"?
gwjames47-4 one thousands of a sec. is a very small diff.
mrtim-how do you like that spelling!lol!
gwjames47-It does show Bobby in P16 on nascar.com, but the list is still unofficial
gwjames47-I mean P15 oooops!!
GoBobby47-I wouldn't lie to you!
gwjames47-29th in OP and only 17 points out of 26th
mrtim-hey, maybe a few more bucks for the crew today!
gwjames47-I think they have a great crew.....they keep diggin
mrtim-the crew certainly made up for the pocono race!
gwjames47-Well, gotta run, see you guys next race.
GoBobby47-look at nascar.com again - now it's official - reboot it!
mrtim-gwjames47 take care pale, have a good week!
mrtim-top 15 is "awsome", compared to what we were in practice/qualifying.
cali_4_3timewinner-need to have a midweek chat party
mrtim-well, this would be the week. I have a tough 3 day work week, followed up by a 4 day work week next week w/monday off! life sucks!!lol
mrtim-oh, wait, 3 day week going into labor dat weekend, off fri, and most likely monday, Labor Day!!
cali_4_3timewinner-see ya all on the pages
mrtim-GoBobby47 nice call..p15!
GoBobby47-it came as a tweet from NASCAR47
mrtim-well, you can take the credit. you don't have to reveal your "sources"!!lol
mrtim-well....take care everybody! stay safe, talk next week.
mrtim-ya'll happy with the race results?
mrtim-izzy47 well, how was dinner?
izzy47-it was very good actually thank you, have you had dinner?
mrtim-well....no!!!lol ate way to much this weekend, stayed up way to late, the kingsford bag is closed for the day!!
mrtim-izzy47 it's one of those snack and conjure up something nights!
izzy47-ah...well those can be fun
izzy47-doing anything else fun this evening?
mrtim-no! getting prepped for a 3 day work week!
izzy47-oh, well that's no fun...at least it's only 3 days?
mrtim-oh, believe me ...it's all good! I originally planned to maybe go to bristol, but the time @ home will be relaxing.
izzy47-true, but i'm sure it would've been awesome to go as well...
mrtim-no doubt.....someday soon!!
mrtim-do you and the family hit any races?
izzy47-we had gone to the july daytona a few times...my mom and i will be going to chicago..thanks to the team..otherwise i probably wouldn't have been able to go to any this year..
labonte4me-15th still good
labonte4me-as they go on, things will keep progressing
mrtim-very nice! I think next year will be the year I get back to the track providing bobby is still w/47 team. the last few yrs were tough!
izzy47-they have been..i hope that you do get to a race..
izzy47-clearly it hates me
mrtim-i really got dicouraged when the daytona became almost a night race, finishing @ almost 7pm under the lights. I used to go when i would barely make the 1215 green flag!!lol
mrtim-you get the broken english!!
mrtim-what was for dinner? usaully chicken on the grill for me in one shape or form. i should have feathers for hair!
izzy47-lol...chicken is awesome...had fried chicken actually..
izzy47-ya a little actually
mrtim-this race really should give the team a boost. they were junk in prac. & gual. and really made a great day of it! so proud of how hard they work. now we need to star the move up in nthe pts!
izzy47-yes..they worked extremely hard today...very proud...and hopefully this will give them momentum going into the next couple races especially...I think it should be good...provided those ahead in points have bad days as well would help...
mrtim-is this like the 4th top 20 out of the last 5 races? remember the 25-30th syndrome? well, dumb question!
izzy47-well i don't remember off the top of my head if it's 4 outta 5 but i know we've been doing much better than the 25-30th...the team has def needed this..
mrtim-yes...i think they were slow to adopt the "new" fuel and track pos. strategy. look how well frankie has done since he started to "gamble" a bit!
izzy47-I know...but they had to learn on their own I guess lol.
mrtim-I guess!!! that's a no kidderr'
izzy47-ya...i'm surprised there aren't others on...usually a couple more than this...hmmm
mrtim-yes...especially after a pretty good day! can't forget the "dude" comment by bobby! dude how about some wedge? something like that. seemed to be the turning point!
mrtim-I love it! bobby pretty passive "aggressive" great to see him fired up a bit! that is healthy to the team.
izzy47-yes...there's a point when he really needs to stop talking quietly during practice and get it done so that they maybe could focus more on blocking and passing than fighting the car...gotta be a balance there somewhere
mrtim-I totally agree. bobby is a very balanced racer, i think today he was really fired up after a rather "suttle" start. Izzy, what have you done to the computer gods??lol
izzy47-i wish i knew so i could make it up to them! and to look at his stats...he has 17 wins at intermediate track..17 out of 21...they should be able to fix it by the end of this year...and then next year..i believe they will be a considerable threat...provided they are together that is...i have faith they'll get it..you can tell that they are def progressing..and i know they've been working and working..i'm glad it's finally starting to work for them
mrtim-yes...you can see it in the qualifying & results. will they keep the MWR alliance?
izzy47-i'm not sure about that...i wish that i knew, but if i knew i probably wouldn't be able to say anything...if they do stay with them...I think they have a lot of work to do..as far as being a "team"...they could all do better if they really really worked together...but they are different "teams" and I get it, but...i don't know
mrtim-pretty good answer! the best thing they jtg-d could do is get a 2nd car
izzy47-just hope i'm not stepping on toes lol.....and i think it would be good for them, but as far as financially not sure they'd be able to pull it off next year..perhaps the next one
mrtim-i get it completely! I think the true #47 fans "get" the deal, and "understand" the way things are done!
mrtim-izzy47 do you have a tmer set to "boot" you off!!! lol1
izzy47-perhaps jtgd has set it....will have to ask ha
mrtim-what does GoBobby47 think of all this??
izzy47-whatcha think Chuck?
izzy47-ya...that's no fun....we need more people...
mrtim-oh, i know i'm boring!!
izzy47-nada...you're fine...didn't mean for it to sound that way
mrtim-are you paid to be the "diehard"team chatter??
mrtim-nice! do you know DeBora.....she seems to have her act together?
izzy47-i know her a little bit..friends on fb..don't know her personally...she does seem to know what she is doing...
mrtim-nice addition to the race "chat"
izzy47-good to hear that Smith may do the q and a again..was a lot of fun last time
izzy47-so, did i fail in helping to control the chat today? :/
mrtim-sorry..had to take a time out! presonally, i'm more or less new to this, i like your presence! no, you did not fail at all ! some "step up" more than others, like DeBora. I don't know people's role, nor do i want to. It's alllll good! (except the negative ones).
izzy47-DeBora is pretty good about it...it seems I just make people mad when I say something..
izzy47-how are you this evening?
Lucky47-very well, thought it was a pretty good race today.
mrtim-well, I missed monday @ th glenn. you keep doing what you're doing! remember your audience, i think you do a good job! Most people, like me look for the best in people, not the worst!
izzy47-yes...so glad they got it to work for them
izzy47-well thank you
Lucky47-I thought I might check out the chat for today, is there a way to read what was said?
izzy47-unfortunately i won't get the chat until tomorrow morning..about a quarter to 5am est....you could ask jtgd but..
Lucky47 oh, welp I guess I can check tomorrow night. I like to relive the good finishes...
mrtim-I went into today thinking this..practice #1 poor, qualifying,poor. Practice #2 poor.Make something out of nothing, and we did that!
Lucky47-Where can I find it? Is it Chat Room recap?
izzy47-sorry..but i will get done as fast as i can tom...yes...just click on that link and it will take you to the web page it will be on
Lucky47-I agreed mrtim, Bobby didn;t sound too happy on the scanner early in the race, but by that last run he sounded hopeful, almost sounded like he was joking?
mrtim-Lucky47 look for mrtim telling the #22 to hit the wall again, 1st , not enough!lol
Lucky47-Really? I must have missed that, babysitting and watching the race can be difficult:)
mrtim-you're a lucky man LoL!!!
Lucky47-For some reason I have a tough time with Raceview and chat at the same time. I love Raceview when it works, feels like I am at the track. :) btw, I am a lucky lady LOL
Lucky47-Anyone going to any races soon?
izzy47-i'm going to chicago...you?
Lucky47-I hope to go to Talledega. I want to see a race in the south!
Lucky47-Airfare is crazy expensive from California
Lucky47-Is Chicago your home track?
mrtim-Lucky47 well, drive!!
Lucky47-LOL, my dad would love too. Not enough time vacation only a week, but you never know!! Wish we had picked Bristol, so it would be here sooner. Alabama sounds like fun too.
GoBobby47-I went to Michigan in June and Pocono & Watkins Glen back-to-back: need to stay HOME for awhile!
Lucky47-Wow, lucky you. That is a lot of travel....Did you stay for Monday?
GoBobby47-at the glen, yes
GoBobby47-it's only about 2hrs 20 minutes from me
GoBobby47-actually went back monday
Lucky47-Good, that would be horrible to miss a race because of rain.
GoBobby47-rained at pocono too
GoBobby47-as Jeff Foxworthy would say "if you drive 700 miles, to watch 43 other guys drive 500 miles, you might be a redneck"!
Lucky47-hahaha, I am sure I am a redneck and I don't care. :)
GoBobby47-i guess i am too!
mrtim-GoBobby47 wait a minute, are we neigbors? only 2 1/2 from me!
Lucky47-BUT, if I drive that far I sure as heck would make sure I am there for the Monday in case it rains.
GoBobby47-5.5 hours to Michigan, 4 hours to Pocono & 2.5 to the Glen
GoBobby47-where are you tim
GoBobby47-i'm right outside buffalo, ny
mrtim-GoBobby47 utica-rome ny area
GoBobby47-same 2.5 hrs, other way - lol
GoBobby47-have you been to newhampshire yet?
Lucky47-Dang, you are lucky. I am an hour from Sonoma but 6 from Autoclub, and about 9 from Las Vegas. We have driven to Pheonix twice and that is as far as I have gone, took about 14 hours I think, well worth the trip. AZ isn't as much fun as Vegas though, that is our new favorite track. Love the Hauler parade....
mrtim-GoBobby47 no, funny story. I drive to buffalo 5 days a week,. 225-230 times a year!!lol love the sabres and bills and there fans!!
GoBobby47-it took us about 10.5 to New Hampshire & about 11.5 to Dover a few years ago - different trips
GoBobby47-why does anyone come to buffalo?
GoBobby47-actually it's really not a bad place to live
mrtim-trucking!! great hard working people! fantastic people!!
GoBobby47-I go through your area quite a bit too, on my way to Albany
Lucky47-Welp, take care all - dinner time and I am hungry. Bye.
GoBobby47-Oh, ok - who do you drive for?
mrtim-Wal-mart private fleet (co. driver)
GoBobby47-i bought my #47 Little Debbie t-shirt at walmart - lol
GoBobby47-have you ever been to a warehouser in buffalo called Sonwil?
mrtim-I sure have... we used to p/u there often 3-4 yrs ago. Sonwill drive ? off rte 33?
GoBobby47-mrtim yep! next time you're there, ask for a guy named Matt Howard. He's my NASCAR traveling buddy and a BIG Bobby fan too!
GoBobby47-actually, he's probably more of a Stewart fan but he likes Bobby alot!
GoBobby47-just tell him "Chuck sent you"!
mrtim-toooo funny!! I pull dbl 48' tandems, I deliver to clarence, and hamburg stores. usually pick up @ meyer bros. in w. seneca or nestle purina in dunkirk, or yrc in tonawanda! love buffalo!!
GoBobby47-DAM, I grew up in Tonawanda! I'm actually in Alden now!
GoBobby47-& I bought the t-shirt at the clarence store
HughG47-Was in the chat today but did not comment much...was focusing on race on TV
mrtim-been stuck on the thwy in more than one "lake effect event" lol
GoBobby47-HughG47 - always a good idea "not to chat too much"
HughG47-seems like everytime the race starts a T-Storm gets here so I was waiting on the power to go out but it stayed on.
GoBobby47-I seem to remember some pretty good snowfalls in your area too
mrtim-it was a long,long,long, winter laster yr. I'm enjoying sweating the last 2mos!
GoBobby47-I couldn't agree more!
izzy47-well I'm glad you didn't lose power...and Hugh I promise to have a new poem up for you tom when i get the chat up

HughG47-I mainly jusst look at the JTG updates during race
