mbbnscr47: well at least we know it clears up right..
DG47: Notta clue

mbbnscr47: good, maybe it'll be a good run
GoBobby47: & toes, & legs, & anything else that
mbbnscr47: haha well yes
GoBobby47: can't watch tv with eyes crossed
DG47: can try!
GoBobby47: i am, it's not real clear
mbbnscr47: true you can, but that would double his
times, so don't do that lol
GoBobby47: this is a TOUGH track to get the
DG47: Guess hes going home
mbbnscr47: yes, it is tough...devin you're crazy
DG47: My bad
GoBobby47: remember when Sadler hit the inside
wall last year
DG47: i was there! looked nasty!
GoBobby47: straight on at about 150mph
Doug: hope that doesnt worry Bobby
GoBobby47: the year's get all mixed up - lol
Doug: gotta get after it
Doug: i know he was sandbagging
GoBobby47: sure hope he was
mbbnscr47: ya, let's hope, but..
Doug: how can they run 6th last year and be so bad
GoBobby47: if it was, it was a superlative job of
Doug: i'd be shocked if he doesnt qualify well
GoBobby47: likes the track
Doug: all they have to do is take the set up from the
00, who seems to have our last year set up
DG47: i think the rain might mess up his handling,
not sure we will see a good one
GoBobby47: as much as anyone can like pocono
mbbnscr47: let's just wait and see shall we..he'll be
going out soon..well..nascar.com wise
Doug: yes, we will see
GoBobby47: new car please!
GoBobby47: for Mike
DG47: nose job at least
Doug: i know, if its really that bad, i would roll out
the backup, not the one they messed with
GoBobby47: do they even have a backup for the 60
Doug: poor skinner
GoBobby47: they might not
GoBobby47: don't tell if you see the time on
mbbnscr47: i won't..don't worry
GoBobby47: ruins all the suspense!
mbbnscr47: i know
GoBobby47: GO BOBBY!!!
mbbnscr47: he's on track so
Doug: out of cars he says
DG47: poor skinner
GoBobby47: Yea! Cassill finally didn't wreck Finch's
DG47: X-D ! good for cassil
GoBobby47: i think he's wrecked EVERY week this
DG47: seems it
GoBobby47: might have missed one - lol
DG47: i like him though
GoBobby47: seems like a pretty good kid
GoBobby47: bobb's after Mears - I think
mbbnscr47: yes, he is
GoBobby47: ??? bobb ???
mbbnscr47: yes bobby is after mears
GoBobby47: i was referring to my typing skills
mbbnscr47: oh..ya well it happens
DG47: here wee gooooo!!! X-D
GoBobby47: that's why god invented "oops"
Doug: shhhh, i have TV delay
Doug: dont see anything yet... typical
Doug: go DAMNIT!!!
Doug: POLE, for a minute hehe
GoBobby47: atta boy
DG47: beat all the goghers
mbbnscr47: it was so hard not to say anything
Doug: ty :)
GoBobby47: car looked ALOT better
mbbnscr47: much better...shiny too
DG47: X-D 'glittery?'
GoBobby47: especially with your optimism megan
Doug: at least he didnt embarass himself, beat the
mbbnscr47: it's not a night race lol so just
shiny...gotta stay positive
DG47: didnt pull a skinner either!
GoBobby47: that was a pretty good run, forget the
GoBobby47: & about a second faster than ALL day
GoBobby47: 53.06 is pretty good at Pocono
mbbnscr47: HI JTGD
DG47: bobby knows pocono
GoBobby47: bobby knows them all - lol
GoBobby47: he even "knows" some that aren't used
GoBobby47: but, I don't think he knew Eldora very
GoBobby47: dam, Bowyer bumped him
mbbnscr47: it was still a good run
GoBobby47: heh Megan, watch this - "that was a
very good run! should be good for a top 15-20
Tobysmom: Bobby's run looked good!
GoBobby47: really, that's a pretty good time for this
mbbnscr47: yes it is. thank you
DG47: wow good for yeley
mbbnscr47: i'm so cold...i'm wearing gloves...haha
GoBobby47: wow, there's a L--O--N--G tv delay
Doug: hope hornish is in, hes always good for a
GoBobby47: or 2 or 3
mbbnscr47: you guys...
GoBobby47: i still remember Harvick's comment
about Montoya - "it's not a matter if Juan Pablo will
wreck, it's a matter of when"
mbbnscr47: or who, I suppose
GoBobby47: used to be himself
GoBobby47: all by himself
DG47: or his teammate X-D anyone remember that
nationwide race? wrecked reed sorenson in the 41
to win it?
mbbnscr47: so has Bobby a couple times this year,
so perhaps Bobby can gain a little of that
aggression..not too much tho..
mbbnscr47: you're being quiet over there JTGD rep
GoBobby47: the big thing with bobby, always been,
he takes GOOD care of his equipment
mbbnscr47: He does yes
GoBobby47: car owners love him
GoBobby47: 4th out of 20
GoBobby47: or should we "disclose" that
mbbnscr47: lol, well..you wouldn't let me say
GoBobby47: i only meant about Bobby
mbbnscr47: you confuse me
GoBobby47: it's like watching a "taped" sporting
event when you already know the outcome
GoBobby47: kind of anticlimatic
DG47: wow go regan!
Doug: sooo JTG, were you sandbagging?
Doug: got us all upset and all
Doug: perhaps thats why you put out that
statement ahead of time
DG47: i wonder what Daugherty thinks, everyone
calls the team JTG X-D always wonderd
mbbnscr47: I don't think they're paying attention
Doug: he dont care, he knows we now him and love
Doug: just a pain to type
DG47: X-D just a thought
Doug: i have thought about it too
Doug: don't want to disrespect or disregard
DG47: ill start useing JTGD ^_^
DG47: whats 1 more letter
Doug: its a mental thing though
DG47: we should be good with D, doug, devin
Doug: the hyphen is too much
DG47: natural to us
mbbnscr47: there's no winning
Doug: whos on jtgd, is it Todd?
DG47: some guy in japan made his nickname that?
Doug: Landon? ( since he probably works there now)
Doug: i wonder if you can, did theey not reserve it?
DG47: you cant see the last part, all you have to do
is make your nickname JTG Daughe and people will
think its the team: I have no idea
DG47: although that wouldnt be nice
mbbnscr47: i'm sure someone could, but surely they
would say something
mbbnscr47: ya, i think i'll stop talking
Steve: lookin pretty good so far!
JTG Daugherty Racing: Good morning everyone,
nice pickup from yesterday's practices, wasn't it?
mbbnscr47: wow, little behind there lol
mbbnscr47: yes, it was a very good pick up
Tobysmom: Still looking great.....Lagono on track
JTG Daugherty Racing: To answer Doug's question,
not sandbagging, it really was that bad
mbbnscr47: we were afraid of that, but it looks like
you guys worked hard to fix it so
Tobysmom: predictions for tomorrow?
JTG Daugherty Racing: To answer another one of
Doug's questions... Don't use our name (ninja) lol
mbbnscr47: lol..I won't...promise...
Doug: you do sometimes
Doug: Todd does, to throw him under the bus
JTG Daugherty Racing: If the car really is better, I'll
say 15-20, if it was just a 2 lap fluke, 25th
Doug: or is hauler more appropriate?
Doug: sounds like Todd or higher
Tobysmom: Thanks....I'm hoping for a top 20
JTG Daugherty Racing: heck, we're hoping for a top
10, just trying to manage expectations
Tobysmom: lol......drat those expectations :)
Doug: as long as you have B it doesnt matter, you
Tobysmom: Amen to Doug's comment
JTG Daugherty Racing: So far looks like starting p21
Doug: you might have to hear some fussin if he isnt
top 10 every week, but we'll still be here
JTG Daugherty Racing: We know and understand.
As much as we want to be locked into the Chase,
we just aren't there yet
Tobysmom: Why is tv and lap by lap so far behind?
JTG Daugherty Racing: Network decision, not
watching TV, are they showing all cars or skipping
some for commercials
Doug: might be showing all, havent paid attention
JTG Daugherty Racing: Sometimes they will lag by
30 minutes so all cars can be seen qualifying
Tobysmom: Dale qualifying now and he was the 32
to go out.....we are still 9th
Tobysmom: 12 to go
JTG Daugherty Racing: OK, we are locked into the
Leroy: We might get us a top 15 starting spot
Doug: nice :)
Doug: we need the big one in qualifying
Leroy: smith on pole so far
Doug: next 10 to wreck
DG47: good for regan
JTG Daugherty Racing: So, have to wake up at 2:30
am and get ready to head to the track, running
tires during the race so I won't be able to
participate in chat room, Megan - You run point for
mbbnscr47: JTGD say what
Doug: he said hold down the fort
DG47: if her internet keeps on X-D
Tobysmom: 11 to go, we're still 9th
mbbnscr47: I'll be here, I'll do what I can with said
crappy internet..thanks for reminding me Devin
JTG Daugherty Racing: Play role of moderator,
watch the language, make sure everyone has fun
but remains respectful
DG47: Sorry! :x
Doug: we'll now we have to cuss
Doug: to see what she will do
DG47: shhh, they are still here
mbbnscr47: I knew what you meant..just don't know
why me lol...Doug don't get me started
OKCowpoke: Track looks like it's slowying up
JTG Daugherty Racing: Prediction: Hamlin=Winner
DG47: prediction, bobby=winner
Leroy: I second that prediction DG47
Leroy: Gordon Pole
Doug: JTGD - when you get 20 miles north of DC,
and 270 turns to 2 lanes, you'll be in my neck of the
DG47: littlerally woods! X-D
JTG Daugherty Racing: Appreciate the sentiment
but have you seen the last 3 races and both
practices yesterday? We aren't going from poor
performance to victory lane in one week. We need
to work our way forward, top 15-20
DG47: okay so if denny 'blows up, crashes', will you
change your prediction to your driver?
Tobysmom: You've got me hoping for a top 10
JTG Daugherty Racing: lol, yes
OKCowpoke: I think we are doing swell. Doing
better than Ambrose last year
Leroy: Smith can do it We can too
Tobysmom: Montoya on the track now...is it ok to
hope he wrecks?
Leroy: Smith did not have a good car at Darlington.
JTG Daugherty Racing: Certainly taking better care
of the equipment, not tearing up cars
JTG Daugherty Racing: Strategy took a step
backwards this year
OKCowpoke: No kidding JTG, remember Buckshot
Jones and PE? He tore up many
Doug: yes, woods literally, who is that? Cheryle?
Leroy: WE I repeat WE NEVER tear up our cars.
Other People tear up our cars. The 9 the 22 etc..
JTG Daugherty Racing: P-17, Leroy may be right...
OKCowpoke: I wish I coulda seen what the 9 did to
bobby on the last lap. They showed one poor
OKCowpoke: at darlington
JTG Daugherty Racing: just too aggresive
Tobysmom: 6 to go
Leroy: I dont recall once this year where Bobby
made a mistake and killed the car. I recall the 18
and 99 at phenoiex causing a pill up the killed our
OKCowpoke: nope Leroy, all some other cause, no
driver error. Tire blew at cali i think
Leroy: I think about it the couple of times bobby did
lose the car he didnt hit anything
Doug: who is DG47?
Doug: dont have Megans link
DG47: Devin here
JTG Daugherty Racing: Not Bobby's fault, we have
given him some ill-handling cars this year. Our
Doug: you from MD?
OKCowpoke: I like the bristol spin the best! Last
years Daytona 500 practice was cool too.
Leroy: Whoa wait a min. JTG
JTG Daugherty Racing: Doug, Megan's link is on her
facebook info page
Doug: achilies ill
Leroy: Lets take a trip down memory lane this year
Doug: ok, thanks
OKCowpoke: I think P18, that's awesome
Leroy: I have consistently complimented our short
track program we had a fast car at pheniox a fast
car at martinsville. The Daytona car was not bad.
Leroy: Darlington car was pretty good
47Fan: Awesome turn around from yesterday!
Looked like a Miserable weekend yesterday but
starting to look like it could be a fun Day tomorrow!
Doug: yup, short track and RP we have down
Doug: and RC too i think
Doug: i was hoping since Pocono is so odd, we would
Doug: but too odd i suppose
JTG Daugherty Racing: We'll be pretty good on RC,
Ambrose really helped our program
OKCowpoke: It's a big track so hopefully no threat
of being lapped starting toward the middle. They
have done it all year, getting the car better that is
so I think it's good start.
Leroy: Im really looking forward to new hampsher
cuz its like an overgrown martinville
47Fan: ^ Wish I was going there this year!
JTG Daugherty Racing: We should be ok tomorrow,
long track, long race. Avoid the wrecks, stay on
lead lap, fuel mileage will be key
OKCowpoke: Enjoy the race tomorrow folks, bye!
JTG Daugherty Racing: Bye OKC
mbbnscr47: see ya
Leroy: JTG Bobby has had good cars. Its just when
we are running good like pheniox and martinsville
and darlington. We get caught up in the other
JTG Daugherty Racing: Cars are good, setups are a
Leroy: once we start hitting repeat tracks we will be
GoBobby47: hit this one much better
47Fan: Yeah, I really only see two races where we
seemed to be slow the entire race, those being
Kansas and California, everywhere else we were
either good from the start or we made it better
during the race!
JTG Daugherty Racing: we will
DG47: doubtful, our own team member in here picks
denny to win, which means not much confidence in
there.our driver bobby to win.
GoBobby47: start 18th - not bad at all considering
the practice times
Leroy: Bobby can win sunday
JTG Daugherty Racing: A win after the last three
weeks is probably not realistic. Having watched
Hamlin up close here for the last 2 years, he is my
GoBobby47: can we hope for a top 10
Leroy: No JTG its clear as day. I have to go back to
JTG Daugherty Racing: A top-10 is possible,
assuming the changes we made are good for more
than qual laps.
Leroy: You never know bobby gould be in the right
positon at the right time.
GoBobby47: that is the question
JTG Daugherty Racing: Smith would be good for the
sport, I don't think he does it though
GoBobby47: anybody other than the "big 3" is good
for the sport
JTG Daugherty Racing: If we win it will be similar to
Smith's win, fuel and pit strategy
Leroy: we will see what race conditions hold
Leroy: This is a long run track and Kerr always sets
up for the long run.
DG47: JTGD doesnt think so, already written bobby
off as a, MAYBE top 10, and with that kind of
confidence, i say good day everyone
GoBobby47: what's wrong with "fuel & pit strategy
JTG Daugherty Racing: nothing, just not our
strength yet this season
Leroy: DG47 dont get upset JTG is being a realist
Leroy: Understanding our weakness.
JTG Daugherty Racing: He's gone
GoBobby47: matter of fact, " :p it strategy"
may be a VERY GOOD option after Darlington
mbbnscr47: i'll get after him
Leroy: We need to get the race to fall in our hands
JTG Daugherty Racing: Everyone and we mean
everyone needs to understand, we aren't going
from Mutiny, the sky is falling one week to Victory
lane the next week. Manage expectations.
47Fan: Yeah^, I think a top 20 this weekend would
be a great turn around from the last couple weeks
GoBobby47: it did kinda look like the sky was falling
Leroy: Im just saying it can be done.
JTG Daugherty Racing: Of course it can, just don't
expect it, be pleased with it
Doug: WTF is Devins problem, geeze
Doug: i appreciate the info, not smoke
Leroy: we can pick up the lucky hores shoe. You see
JJ dropped it out his back in when he tried to shove
the fifth title up there.
JTG Daugherty Racing: Hopefully everyone
understands after our letter that we don't blow
smoke. We know our limitations and we are working
very hard to get better
Doug: one would think so, but i saw a few that
jumped at the chance to throw it back at you
JTG Daugherty Racing: Sure, but they are the
exception, not the rule. Can't please everyone all
of the time...
JTG Daugherty Racing: If we take care of our
business good things will happen. We hope all of
you want to come along with us
Leroy: JTG Chill. Let us have our big dreams. Its
what gives us fans hope and passion for bobby and
the 47 crew. We know we are struggling. and you
dont have to support our thoughts but dont try to
keep showing us the reality we already understand.
Doug: all that matters to me is that Bobby will stay,
as long as he does im in
mbbnscr47: some people don't understand tho
47Fan: Is bobby signed on to race with JTGD next
year or is it just this year for now?
JTG Daugherty Racing: We do not discuss contracts
of any type
Doug: of course not, wasnt asking, just saying
Doug: the letter stated the owners position i think
JTG Daugherty Racing: ;)
Leroy: We get a differnt JTG every day huh?
JTG Daugherty Racing: There are 4-5 of us that
jump on, from PR to Sponsor Services to Owners
Doug: im gussing owner....
JTG Daugherty Racing: To Pit crew members, they
would be jealous if I left them out...
Doug: ownerr wouldnt drive i think
JTG Daugherty Racing: drive?
Doug: its not Todd....
Leroy: I can tell cuz you have a completly different
Tone from the others
Doug: is someone that would grunt tires..
Doug: who could it be?
JTG Daugherty Racing: Oh, we all run tires... just
Doug: Does Jenny run tires?
Leroy: What would be cool is if bobby jumped on
JTG Daugherty Racing: lol, we'll not, not the
JTG Daugherty Racing: she is going to punch me
Doug: well its an unknown then
Doug: why not tell us?
Leroy: ok everyone see ill talk to you guys on race
day have a good day everyone.
JTG Daugherty Racing: Bye Leroy
JTG Daugherty Racing: Todd
mbbnscr47: what no comment now guys...
Doug: oh, dang, why so secretive then?
JTG Daugherty Racing: I wasn't... Nobody really
mbbnscr47: true..good point
Doug: dude, we were askin, or guessin
Doug: so whos gonna give us updates if you are
running tires? or is that pre[race?
JTG Daugherty Racing: Guessing is fun, trying to
see how well you knew our cadence.
JTG Daugherty Racing: Maybe someone with a
scanner can do it. I will be wiped out and won't be
able to keep up
Doug: it sounded like you at first, because you are
candid, but then you said we don't reveal, so i was
mbbnscr47: knew it wasn't Al haha
JTG Daugherty Racing: No, just about contract stuff
Doug: someone said we don't reveal out identity...
Doug: and i was like OK...
JTG Daugherty Racing: whoa, don't remember that
JTG Daugherty Racing: oh well, its me
mbbnscr47: i don't remember either...you want me
to check? lol
JTG Daugherty Racing: nah, not important
mbbnscr47: good, cuz i really didn't want to ;)
JTG Daugherty Racing: i'll bet
JTG Daugherty Racing: I just hope we don't get
rained out, lots to do in the office this week
JTG Daugherty Racing: anyone check weather
mbbnscr47: I hope not either...and lots of work in
the office doesn't sound great either
mbbnscr47: scattered t-storms 60% chance...i think
JTG Daugherty Racing: rain rain, go away
JTG Daugherty Racing: Ok everyone, thanks for the
chat. I'll bring the computer and try to jump in with
updates, we'll see. Glad we start 18th.
Doug: LAH MAAAA pheeebt
JTG Daugherty Racing: Megan, you have the reigns.
mbbnscr47: yup 18th is good, don't over work
tom...and I think you're crazy..
mbbnscr47: I'll do my best for you
Doug: speed is getting pretentious
JTG Daugherty Racing: I know you will, have fun
mbbnscr47: you too
mbbnscr47: alright anything to add before I put this
on my site?
Doug: nothing from me
mbbnscr47: okay :)
