[HGRAY47] Hi all.
[kkfan4ever1] hey there megan whats up?
[megan] just waiting for the race. you?
[kkfan4ever1] same here megan just listening too some nusic
[kkfan4ever1] yeah it is megan
[HGRAY47] I did not get to see the truck race but is sounded like a good race on the Sirius broadcast.
[megan] you missed a good one
[HGRAY47] saw the last 20 laps of the NW race
[megan] ya, I only watched about the last 10
[HGRAY47] got to get lunch out of the oven....no grilling with showers today/
[JTG Daugherty Racing] HI Hugh
[caliphoenixgirl] Anyone watch the race yesturday. That's a great road course.
[HunterB] We finished 19th in the June race but that was with Jeff Gordon, Kasey Kahne, Dale JR, Kurt Busch, Jimmie Johnson, Denny Hamlin, and Jamie McMurray having problems.
[HGRAY47] got to last 20 laps was great
[HunterB] AJ was 33rd in first practice, 26th in 2nd practice and 36th in third practice.
[HunterB] May not be a fun day sadly
[JTG Daugherty Racing] It will be as fun as you want it to be.
[HGRAY47] Just about ANY raceday is fun.
[HunterB] I mean its always fun watching a race, being in the JTG chat room, and listening to Bobby's radio but I would love a top 20 to make it extra fun.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Well, let's watch and find out.
[HunterB] lol, alright.
[caliphoenixgirl] I am trying some of KP's logic today. I am wearing a #18 Interstate Batteries Kyle Busch shirt with IB colors hoping it will bring luck to BLab in the 47. In 2011 BL started 31 finished 15 in 2nd race here. In 2011 JTG was associated with MWR. Associated with MWR now, is JGR...with TRD. Bobby was great at MIS in the 18. So hoping it all brings Bobby and the boys and the team good luck today. :p :p :p
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Has Danica always work earings during te races?
[caliphoenixgirl] wow sorry too brite
[HunterB] Hope that will work for us Diane :p
[caliphoenixgirl] Is this AJ's car from june?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] I don't know
[caliphoenixgirl] Anyway, finally a race where we get to really compare. The car in June VS the car in August. With 2 different drivers.
[HunterB] Hope the extra special car will be back on the track soon
[JTG Daugherty Racing] What is extra special?
[caliphoenixgirl] Go Bobby Go Clint Go Denny Go Ryan
[caliphoenixgirl] JJ and JM both go to the back, but they were in the other line..figures.
[caliphoenixgirl] You are Todd ;) :) flagwave
[caliphoenixgirl] jet dryer leakin oil 8)
[JD] i didnt watch qualifying, what happened to kahne?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Looks like some drivers are already saving fuel
[HGRAY47] Which JGR car is scheduled to wreck Kahne this week?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] That was quick!
[Nascar fan 47] hello
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Welcome
[Nascar fan 47] ty
[caliphoenixgirl] Fuey!! Uugh!! Good save though.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Not pitting
[chad j7] the broadcast is terrible
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Hey, let them get the commercials out of the way now so we can see more racing later! :-)
[Nascar fan 47] like us om facebook https://www.facebook.com/BobbyLabonteFans?ref=hl
[JD] of coarse
[JTG Daugherty Racing] The debris on Bobby's nose is a Ford grill decal.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Pitting for tires, fuel and pull decal.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] The debris pushed in Bobby's grill a little.
[Nascar fan 47] looks like a scotts deal on the hood
[Nascar fan 47] ???
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Kingsford
[HGRAY47] Need to look for a Ford with no grill decal.
[JD] do you know the sponsor for next week?
[Nascar fan 47] ^
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Bush's Beans. Bush's Beans has 3 of the next 5 races.
[Nascar fan 47] ty
[caliphoenixgirl] been away, what's Bobby doing in 36th?
[Nascar fan 47] good for us
[bob] This is ridiculous. We can't even go 5 laps without a caution
[HGRAY47] That jet dryer must have really greased the track
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Pitting to repair grill some more, car running too cool, replacing grill mesh.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Trying to get a pic of grill damage to post.
[HGRAY47] Pace car may get the points for leading the most laps today.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Sad but true
[JD] woooo were hauling
[JD] tv time running 29th?
[JD] sweet lol
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Still running too cool on temps
[bob] Why is the car running too cool a problem?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Not a problem for motor per se, just means there is opportunity to put tape on to improve aero/speed without worrying about overheating. Want to be around 230-240
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Running 190 right now.
[HunterB] Motor is flat
[HunterB] Lol this is great
[HunterB] the conspiracy lives on
[JD] AJ called it an anchor in june
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Yes, the conspiracy
[jdonovan 47] you can kick my other account if you want, I switched computers again
[HunterB] Where is the ninja crew this week?
[HGRAY47] Did we get all the repairs needed on the grill?
[HunterB] Battling with the #1 now
[bob] How is the car handling?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Not yet, had to go so we didn't go a lap down. Plan to seal it up on next stop, hence the cool motor.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Hasn't reported any handling issues today.
[pgwarrior] Hi all
[pgwarrior] Bobby said the motor was flat in the corners...is that fixable?
[labonte2000] I don't think so
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Carry more rpm's through the corner. Also, when they finish repairs to grill and seal it, the engine temps will become normal.
[labonte2000] How many laps farther will we go b4 we pit?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] 4
[caliphoenixgirl] will pit in about 5 laps. Hope we get a chance to lead a lap for a change. Before we have to come in.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Just ran second fastest lap of the race for the 47
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Old tires don't matter much.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Just ran the fastest lap, getting better on longer run.
[Shirleyd] A caution would be so good right now
[HunterB] We're closing on the 11 too
[HunterB] too bad we have to get fuel
[caliphoenixgirl] next time by. Darn.
[bob] Bobby keeps on running faster and faster:)
[labonte2000] Changing 4 tires?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Yes, 4 and fuel
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Likely scuffs
[chad j7] why not 2
[labonte2000] Scuffs faster than stickers?
[pgwarrior] How was the pit stop....how'd we get a lap down already?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Waiting for leaders to pit, stop was good.
[caliphoenixgirl] DG just said fastest lap :}
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Just ran his fastest lap again.
[pgwarrior] Good deal
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Back on LL
[pgwarrior] Got it
[JTG Daugherty Racing] 48 dropping fluid on track, NASCAR looking at it
[caliphoenixgirl] So the back up wasn't bullet broff after all.lol
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Hendrick has lost 4 motors here in the past 2 races.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] -1
[HunterB] Why did we just fall a mile behind the 15?
[caliphoenixgirl] BL says car just wont go
[chad j7] what happened to speed
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Bobby said the front tires are giving up grip and the back tires can't dig in
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Lots of cars are saying the same thing. This is a hard rubber compound.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] That is why everyone scuffed them during prsactice.
[HunterB] Pray for a caution
[labonte2000] Harder compound makes car looser?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Equals no grip
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Soft tires have more grip
[pgwarrior] Caution dance here....lost alot on that last pit stop
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Look at stop times of other drivers, not many faster
[JD] cmon nascar, i know you wanna throw a debris caution
[jdonovan 47] boom
[JD] Freaking sweet
[pgwarrior] love it when Bobby tells Brian what he needs
[caliphoenixgirl] JJ out
[caliphoenixgirl] stayin out
[chad j7] arent we ld/
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Pitting ro tires, fuel, 1/2 wedge out, 1/2 air out LF
[coolhands47] yeah we are
[labonte2000] 4 scuffs again?
[coolhands47] hoping these tires have more grib, times last run werent very good compared to the run prior
[jdonovan 47] coolhands47 Everybody was slower though...
[pgwarrior] Except Jr
[coolhands47] well lets go against the grain ;)
[pgwarrior] Did the grill get hooked up finally?
[coolhands47] got lucky with this caution and need to capitalize on it here
[pgwarrior] bobby seems happy with the car
[coolhands47] did we speed
[pgwarrior] Bobby says he has a vibration
[jdonovan 47] haha
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Sassy
[jdonovan 47] didn't think I'd hear Bobby say that lol.
[caliphoenixgirl] who did Bobby just call a bee's itch?
[jdonovan 47] Danica
[coolhands47] oh boy lol
[JTG Daugherty Racing] No, it was the 93 I think.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] 93 drove him hard on the restart, wouldn't get off his corner.
[jdonovan 47] was it? the 10 was racing him ATM, Someone screwed him up, alli know
[jdonovan 47] Bobby wasn't happy with osmeone thats for sure
[JD] well im sure the 93 and 10 were right next to each other
[pgwarrior] need to pull away
[jdonovan 47] 93 doesn't like the 10 very much I know that
[coolhands47] Hammer down Bobby
[coolhands47] Lap times are heading in the right direction
[pgwarrior] He's pissed
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Now he isn't happy with the 10! David says she is about to take care of herself, stay away from her when she wrecks.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] He backed off, giving her plenty of room.
[coolhands47] sigh lol
[jdonovan 47] 14 got em, but faster than the 34
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Over 210 going into that last corner!
[coolhands47] is she still holding us up or is the 14 ahead
[JTG Daugherty Racing] He doesn't trust her right now, looks like he won't push the issue
[coolhands47] Sucks we stop our progress because of a lap down car...
[jdonovan 47] I like Brian, he is my favorite CC. Even if Bobby is not back next year I'll root for where ever Brian is though...
[coolhands47] 27th now, if shes still holding him up he needs to do something about it
[JTG Daugherty Racing] She is holding up the 14 and Bobby
[jdonovan 47] she is a decent amount ahead right now
[batgrrl] He's saying that there's debris on the racetrack
[coolhands47] oh ok
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Bobby backed out by a good bit.
[batgrrl] pitting in 13
[pgwarrior] Bobby wants the wedge back
[batgrrl] and something about the trackbar
[pgwarrior] man we are dropping like a stone
[JTG Daugherty Racing] No, 13 was pitting
[coolhands47] and a 9th cylinder installed ;)
[coolhands47] Well you can atleast say that the car is consistient. Lap times don't fall off much
[JaBee] anybody here talking???
[batgrrl] a bit
[coolhands47] now if it was 5 tenths faster and this consistient we would have a top 5 car
[batgrrl] pitting in 10
[coolhands47] Hope next season, if the team is still with Toyota that JTG is able to get some TRD motors, regardless who is driving.
[coolhands47] But if that rumor of an RCR deal has any weight that would be the best option
[pgwarrior] We should short pit...slowest car left on the lead lap
[coolhands47] wow lucky break
[coolhands47] 2nd lucky break of the race
[labonte2000] Lucky would be getting ahead of 10 and 93 on the green flag
[coolhands47] or lucky would be those 2 wrecking eachother nad not having to worry about either, which honestly has a pretty good chance of happening anyway.
[chad j7] 4 or 2
[batgrrl] couldn't tell
[JTG Daugherty Racing] 4
[pgwarrior] need to start thinking about two at this rate for track position
[JTG Daugherty Racing] I'm sure they are thinking of 4 all the time
[JTG Daugherty Racing] I mean 2
[JTG Daugherty Racing] I mean 2
[JTG Daugherty Racing] I was staring at the 4 key when I was typing that one! lol
[pgwarrior] you shoot where you point ur finger
[caliphoenixgirl] Try just 2 now, should be another stop or two still to come after.
[batgrrl] one to go
[JTG Daugherty Racing] 22
[batgrrl] glad he's okay
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Looks okay
[caliphoenixgirl] 1 of our guys got a ouch
[JTG Daugherty Racing] That view was from our overhead cam
[JTG Daugherty Racing] back to 20
[JTG Daugherty Racing] He did not like being in the middle did he?
[chad j7] looks very loose
[coolhands47] Dosn't like being around anyone it seems
[Mickey47] What's up? Got in from church just in time to see our guy get hit by the 31.
[coolhands47] So so day been mid 20's
[coolhands47] no big handling issues
[Mickey47] So the car is handling good but lacking HP?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] No grip either
[coolhands47] seems better on two tires
[Mickey47] Maybe we can find some grip before it's over.
[pgwarrior] when did we get 2 tires? car coming in on long runs again
[JTG Daugherty Racing] no, 4
[JTG Daugherty Racing] we haven't taken 2 yet
[pgwarrior] need to get outa the back pack
[coolhands47] does it sound like brian is gonna try 2 and get some track position?
[chad j7] if caution
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Yes, later
[caliphoenixgirl] Bobby is surrounded by Davids. 2 on track right now 34/38 and 1 up top the track DG. LOL
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Jut sliding around a bit too much
[coolhands47] crossing my fingers for a miracle adjustment
[coolhands47] lap times fell off a lot
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Green flag stops underway for those off-cycle
[jdonovan 47] Damn that 13 is running top 5 lap times!
[coolhands47] The 13 has a rousch connection right?
[HGRAY47] 88 crash
[pgwarrior] why not 2 tires?
[jdonovan 47] coolhands47 yea
[pgwarrior] putting stickers on 4....track bar adjustment
[coolhands47] meh need to get out of this pack
[caliphoenixgirl] Thanks for the caution Jr lol
[pgwarrior] At some point need to take 2 to see what it does to the car b4 the end
[pgwarrior] when it matters
[coolhands47] DJ was saying cars handle better on 2 tires
[caliphoenixgirl] 10 at a high rate of speed? 8) Per DG
[pgwarrior] Running outa laps
[pgwarrior] Great....get to play with DP again
[coolhands47] oh no is the 10 back on the lead lap now
[coolhands47] pretty sure bobby would of said yes to no tires if it meant not racing around her
[chad j7] what were the adjustments
[pgwarrior] It's go time...gonna be a couple of cautions here....
[caliphoenixgirl] 38 leader after pit stops. Score one for the underdogs. That's Frankie's car. flagwave
[JTG Daugherty Racing] down 1 on track bar, 4 stickers, fuel, air pressure
[chad j7] ty
[caliphoenixgirl] well he was there. lol not no more. lol lol
[coolhands47] 38 is front row
[chad j7] no
[chad j7] back of the pack
[coolhands47] 32 is frankies car
[caliphoenixgirl] Frankie Kerr went to the 32?
[coolhands47] whoops i was thinking stoddard
[chad j7] unbelievable
[coolhands47] the lap times just never get better
[chad j7] seems like the team just can't get a handle on the new car
[pgwarrior] steam rolled again
[coolhands47] unless youre on a track where the car handling isnt a big factor
[coolhands47] just a david vs goliath thing.
[chad j7] but david won
[coolhands47] well stay tuned lol
[pgwarrior] 8 mph off the leader...
[coolhands47] well we were....
[chad j7] jeeze
[coolhands47] is that tire coming apart
[pgwarrior] 1 lap down
[coolhands47] hood flaps were rattling bad
[Mickey47] Definitely no grip.
[jdonovan 47] Last two times here now for Bobby not so good
[pgwarrior] he can't stand a loose car...car just broke loose
[HunterB] Think Bobby is not trying? When a champion spins out a car you know hes trying to do everything he can to keep that car on pace.
[jdonovan 47] Bristol than Atlanta(not sure if he is going to be in there) but two really good trakcs for Bobby
[jdonovan 47] tracks*
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Sparks from underneath when he was driving to pit, may have broken something underneath during slide.
[Mickey47] That's not good.
[pgwarrior] another sorry day
[pgwarrior] We'll see you next time Bobby's in the car
[47forever] I'm a little late because Java had to update. But what happened to Tyler?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] 31 ran into him, didn't have enough room to leave his box
[jdonovan 47] Crew member
[47forever] Oh, okay.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Back on track
[Mickey47] Good, but way behind now.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Pitting again to keep working on it.
[coolhands47] Goodyear definitely causing some issues today
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Tires are like Daytona/Talladega tires, very hard, little grip.
[caliphoenixgirl] Clint Bobby Kyle all spun today. Wasn't the drivers or crews faults. just hit a "tricky" spot.
[coolhands47] same tires as the june race?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] no clue, it should be on Jayski if you want to look it up
[Mickey47] Seems like they would have brought a tire with more grip since you don't have the banking as Dega and Daytona. I guess it's a way to slow them down also.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Booth just described what Bobby was saying. Car is sitting on top of the track
[jdonovan 47] coolhands47 Just found it yes it is the same tire
[jdonovan 47] Same tire as Kansas
[coolhands47] are we on track?
[Mickey47] Looks like a p36 finish unless someone wrecks out.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] rolling
[Mickey47] That should get us to p35
[coolhands47] We are like very very slow
[coolhands47] we cant be meeting the mins
[coolhands47] better now
[jdonovan 47] 18 spun again?
[jdonovan 47] yup
[jdonovan 47] 18 spun again
[caliphoenixgirl] keepin an eye on Bobby but switching radio to other drivers. .
[caliphoenixgirl] Bristol next weekend?
[jdonovan 47] yea
[caliphoenixgirl] cool. non-aero.
[HunterB] I was just thinking today, what will NASCAR be like when guys like Dale JR, Jeff Gordon, and Jimmie Johnson retire?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Ask Kyle Busch, Kyle Larson and Joey Logano
[jdonovan 47] There is always a future...
[jdonovan 47] till the world ends lol.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Magic, Isiah, Larry all retired from the NBA... Sports goes on, a new generation rises
[jdonovan 47] ^
[caliphoenixgirl] Accroding to Dale Jr. He'll never retire. He'll keep driving even if he's racin ARCA cars. He says its how he makes a living. :)
[jdonovan 47] Don't they all make a liviving in racing?
[jdonovan 47] living*
[Mickey47] It will be the same as when Petty, the Allisons, Dale Sr. Rusty Wallace, etc were gone from the track. New stars arise.
[HunterB] I suppose so, I guess Kyle Busch, Keselowski blended in over the past few years
[HunterB] But with Junior as the "most popular driver" their is really no more Earnhardt's to race anytime soon
[Mickey47] You have Chase Elliot and Jeb Burton that are looking very promising that will keep some of the racing families names on the track.
[coolhands47] hope martin has enough
[caliphoenixgirl] maybe debris per 78
[coolhands47] loganos to lose now
[Mickey47] Hate that for MM
[coolhands47] yeah you could hear the disappointment
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Will the guys who's wife wears the firesuit in the family get to him?
[coolhands47] harvick isnt close enough, but delena is close enough to the 22's pit box to make a difference lol
[coolhands47] 35th, got some work to do.
[HunterB] This was Mark's last race in the 55
[HunterB] They are saying their goodbyes on the radio now so...
[HGRAY47] Pole winner winning the race. Big Day
[Mickey47] Penske always has the best fuel milage of any team.
[caliphoenixgirl] Penske sweeps the NASCAR weekend. Yesturday AJ Today Joey both cars #22.
[megan] truck race isn't part of the weekend?
[kkfan4ever1] what a great weekend of racing congrats to joey logan
[caliphoenixgirl] Sorry megan. Meant cars. Trucks count too. Didn't see anything of the trucks this weekend.
[Mickey47] Work next weekend. I won't see y'all next week.
[HGRAY47] yeah night races wed, fri, sat
[caliphoenixgirl] Well wound up 35th. But we were fast and upper 20's before that. Seems the car ran better today as a whole til it spun. We'll saddle up next week and try again.
[Mickey47] Using the car from NH for Bristol?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] I don't pay attention to that stuff
[Mickey47] Okay. Thanks
[JTG Daugherty Racing] There are 12-13 cars back there ans it is all scripted on a board. I look at it when I go back there but I don't retain the info.
[caliphoenixgirl] Thanks Todd n crew n team
[caliphoenixgirl] maybe a NH car for Richmond?
[Mickey47] All I know is the NH car was great.
[kkfan4ever1] see ya all next week saturday
[JTG Daugherty Racing] May be a Richmond car for Richmond, I don't know.
[caliphoenixgirl] That's right. Loudon comin up soon, anyway. Sorry.
[HGRAY47] Everyone have a great week.
[Mickey47] You to.
[caliphoenixgirl] 78 team is in the Chase 9th.
[Mickey47] That RCR alliance is paying off.
[HunterB] That could be the 47 team next season if it works out
[Mickey47] That's the rumor.
[HunterB] Would love to see Bobby have an opportunity with that equipment
[Mickey47] Well rumor is Bobby is not back here next year.
[Mickey47] Don't you just hate rumors?
[HunterB] Well with the possibility of two teams
[HunterB] I like Bobby's chances at staying... but we'll see.
[HunterB] Apparently Turner/Scott who purchased the 51 may have two teams also
[Mickey47] I would love to see the RCR alliance and Bobby staying.
[HunterB] Would love for that to be the case.
[caliphoenixgirl] Well if Mikey means to keep MM he's gonna have to come up with a 4th car. Sounds like Toyota is ok with MM leaving, which may put him in the 14.
[Mickey47] Rumor is also Toyota is talking to the 78.
[caliphoenixgirl] but who would they allign with?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Tread lightly with the rumor game everyone. MM to the 14 is likely though.
[Mickey47] I'm still a firm believer in that if Toyota will not give me a engine I'd tell them I'm gone.
[caliphoenixgirl] yea we know. But its fun to watch and play.
[Mickey47] I'm taking the rumors litely. Just wishful thinking on my part.
[Mickey47] I don't see the 78 changing. Why mess with success?
[caliphoenixgirl] yeah got dreams n wishes going up in prayer every night. :)
[Mickey47] Me to caliphoenixgirl. I pray for Bobby and this team daily.
[HunterB] Anyway, going to a cookout with Kingsford and Bush's Beans present! Have a nice week everyone.
[Mickey47] You to HunterB
[JTG Daugherty Racing] See ya Hunter
[JTG Daugherty Racing] About to grill up some pork chops myself
[caliphoenixgirl] Have fun Hunter
[Mickey47] Hey Todd, What's the best time to come by the shop a week from Tuesday?
[caliphoenixgirl] Mickey47 ;)
[JTG Daugherty Racing] 2-4ish
[caliphoenixgirl] Gotta go fix some lunch before my vleaning job. See ya all on FB. Its Bristol Week flagwave
[Mickey47] Thanks. I'm going to be in Charlotte Mon and Tues week.
