[caligirl] Glad it started on time, hope they make it without any rain.
[kkfan4ever1] where is everyone megan?
[megan] I assume many aren't here because Bobby isn't in the race
[megan] and soem because they're upset with the team and such
[megan] and probably a few because they had other things to do. glad you made it in though
[kkfan4ever1] anytime megan
[kkfan4ever1] i love my fan's and your fan's
[caligirl] I'm as big a Bobby fan as anybody, and am bummed. But I was to curious what would happen today and wanted to see what AJ had today.
[jaa 47] Hey all
[texgal47] Hey y'all~
[jaa 47] Not home how is the pony express 47 doing ?
[texgal47] Not sure coz I just tuned in too
[jaa 47] Tearing through the field I'm sure with AJ behind the wheel
[texgal47] not a headache from my contact lenses....booo
[texgal47] what is the 47 positition? anyone know?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] 23
[shouldbebobby] Is in car audio "unavailable" today?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Its on
[shouldbebobby] Wonderful see ya
[jaa 47] Yea it's on
[caligirl] Quick reminder please, where did we start?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] 17
[texgal47] alrighty. then....lets cheer aj on since we are adult enough to be in here~
[jaa 47] 17
[jaa 47] Probably better than bobby would have done..and im being serious
[texgal47] I am just glad the race is on so we don't have to kevin do any more karate moves....lol
[JTG Daugherty Racing] But you have to admit those behind the scenes segments were pretty cool, no?
[texgal47] Yes they were indeed~
[caligirl] Get a totally different perspective on the driver as a person not just a athlete.
[texgal47] yes diane i agree
[texgal47] the 47 position?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] 22
[texgal47] ty sir
[texgal47] aweee denny can't catch a break
[caligirl] My 2nd fave DH just can't catch a break right now
[texgal47] I know diane....poor guy. I like Denny but my 2nd fav is martin truex
[caligirl] It just happen to be 2 HMS cars hit with that tire. :p
[texgal47] ohh Think I hear the jr. nation cheering in Texas....
[texgal47] Is the 47 pitting or stying out?
[texgal47] hey derek~
[JTG Daugherty Racing] staying out
[texgal47] ty and good move
[derek] poor jr and jimmie
[texgal47] maybe jr. is ok...looks like it went under the car
[texgal47] is the 47 ok?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] yes. All of the rubber is washed away, there is no grip out there yet. Hot too.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Staying out.
[Mickey47] Hello everyone. Small crowd without Bobby in the car.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Hey Mickey
[caligirl] Wouldn't that be the luck, JJ gets damage and it might help him not hurt him
[JTG Daugherty Racing] The 48 didn't do the 88 any favors on that restart, chopped him
[Mickey47] Hey Todd.
[texgal47] holy moly
[texgal47] what happened to brad?
[caligirl] wheres' teh engine of the 16
[Mickey47] Wreckfest today
[texgal47] the 47 ok?
[derek] i think so
[texgal47] wow the 78 started that huh?
[Mickey47] Good cars being taken out early
[JTG Daugherty Racing] 47 squeezed through on the high side, he is okay. Likely ran over debris.
[texgal47] ty glad the 47 missed that mess
[Mickey47] That looked like a intentional hit to me.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] This is one of the most difficult tracks out there with rubber on the track, without it it is even more difficult.
[derek] i thought the same thing mickey
[Mickey47] Kurt drives like that. No class.
[derek] hope all the drivers are okay
[Mickey47] Where is the twitter board off to the side/
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Did you login from JTGD?
[Mickey47] I'm on the Bush's Bean chat.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Ah, We are redoing that RaceSavers access pages. The Twitter stuff is visible when you login through the JTGD website.
[derek] im on racesavers
[Mickey47] Thanks. I'll swap over
[JTG Daugherty Racing] I think the RaceSavers pages used to have the NASCAR leader board, didn't they? When NASCAR updated their site they killed that widget.
[texgal47] be back...gota do some chores during this red flag...
[derek] yeah it used to it still has it up but its from homestead
[JTG Daugherty Racing] If it's easier we will load the regular twitter feed in there instead of the RebelMouse feed.
[Mickey47] I'm here but all i see are tweets from Bob Pockrass, Jeff Gluck, and Miss Sprint Cup.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Yes, that is our rebelmouse feed. Hold on, I will turn on all posts instead of the ones that only display photos.
[Mickey47] Okay. Thanks.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Okay, now everything from our twitter feed will start posting on the JTGD page.
[derek] well quietness hmm hows the weather outside
[caligirl] we're suppose to reach 97 degrees today and I live up in the mountains. That's HOT
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Partly cloudy, so far so good.
[derek] its raining here
[JTG Daugherty Racing] POsts showing now for you Mickey?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Or should I say post, since I have only made one.
[caligirl] 47 on tv. Looks like a handful
[JTG Daugherty Racing] No clue, I typically get to see about 10 total laps of the races on TV. Too busy reading all of the various Facebook pages and twitter.
[tobysmom] Just got in, what have I missed?
[Mickey47] Still the same Todd.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] You don't see 47 car pitted for...
[Mickey47] No. I might have to log out and come back.
[Mickey47] Now I see it. I had to click on the 2 new post to bring it up. Not automaticly coming up like before.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] It will start to feed automatically eventually.
[Mickey47] Well I'm checking out. Got to get some shut eye before work. I still support the team and hope they find what they are looking for. Still very disappointed that Bobby isn't on the track today. Just seems weird noit seeing his name going across the TV screen. I'm not really interested in watching anyway. See y'all next weekend. Godspeed.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] See ya
[caligirl] Sounds like AJ os more happy with the car now than at the beginning.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] That is the objective, keep working on it to make it better.
[caligirl] I think i'm catching the difference between AJ and Bobby on the radio. AJ is a chatterbox seems like, and Bobby is quiet maybe more in thought. Am I close?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Spot on. Hence, different feedback... Not better, not worse, different, perspective.
[tobysmom] Doesn't the paint scheme on the 18 remind anyone of Bobby's Interstate Batteries car?
[caligirl] Just different personalities.
[caligirl] too pale of green
[caligirl] Danica's car is almost exactly the old coloring of the 18. 88 when it's green too. You have to look twice.
[caligirl] AJ--- Car is aweful on new tires, feels better on 30 lap tires.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Just ran back to back fastest laps of the race.
[shouldbebobby] 30 car is P14
[jaa 47] AJ doing a better job than bobby good for him
[shouldbebobby] Thanks jaa
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Its not about Aj or Bobby, it is about the 47 car/team progressing.
[shouldbebobby] Thank you jtg
[JTG Daugherty Racing] caution
[shouldbebobby] car looks pretty good
[jaa 47] Todd it's not a big deal...AJ is racing the car better than bobby would
[shouldbebobby] ok we get it dude
[jaa 47] Dude...I'm the biggest Bobby supporter and rip JTG all the time
[jaa 47] What's fact is fact
[shouldbebobby] sucks 88 was fast till the tire hit
[shouldbebobby] fact is see ya later. Enjoy
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Back to the race.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] yes, 14
[caligirl] The car should perform better today due to having the test here. If not than you'd have to question if the people setting up the car know what they are doing?
[derek] is the car fast or ?? aj doing good
[tobysmom] What did he say?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Both, plus the caution flew at the right time.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] I think he said it was a little bit tighter?
[JWilson47] Is this a new engine/motor package?
[tobysmom] Love that commercial
[caligirl] Do you all think tony is really doig that o ris a computer helping him ;)
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Same motors, new mapping. They have been updating the mapping throughout the year. Starting to hit their stride. Again, this is where additional input helps.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Don't think he is really doing splits, But he probably really did dunk that oreo. :-)
[derek] i like soda cookies
[megan] some good tv time
[tobysmom] Talking about us.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Wow, you can really see those bumps
[caligirl] Someone finally mentioned Bobby too.
[tobysmom] Wonder if Bobby is watching :)
[caligirl] Can that engine stuff be applied at any track? What is the closest track to KY?
[JWilson47] Probably isnt watching
[caligirl] I hope Bobby took a vacation with his family.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Mapping is the computer coding loaded into the car for each race. It tells the engine what fuel/air mixtures to use when on/off the gas. Continuous process.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Among other things. Power curve is another.
[caligirl] I wonder if Denny is contemplating that back surgery and forgetting the rest of this year, not exactly a good year for him either.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Don't think his back has anything to do with it, just bad luck.
[derek] good pitstop
[tobysmom] Had to refresh....screen just went squirrely
[JWilson47] whose back?
[tobysmom] I'm here
[JTG Daugherty Racing] 24 reporting same issue with stickers
[jaa 47] P 9 nice
[JWilson47] Hamlin might be airlifted to the hospital
[derek] is he okay...
[JWilson47] Nascar made the call to get the helicppter ready
[JTG Daugherty Racing] That track isn't around much. If medical emergency airlift is best resort.
[JWilson47] Twitter saying where Hamlin hit doesnt have a safer barrier
[derek] i hope hes okay
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Just stunning that safer barriers are in full implementation at all NASCAR sanctioned tracks.
[tobysmom] Me too
[derek] if hamlin cant race maybe bobby can run it
[tobysmom] Derek, I like how you think!
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Bobby will be in 47
[derek] yeah but aj will be back in and if bobby dont have a ride maybe gibbs will help
[tobysmom] It's hard to remember that
[caligirl] On low fuel
[tobysmom] Stewart-Haas Racing @StewartHaasRcng 3m Stewart's car is as loose as his joints in that Mobil 1 commercial where he does the splits. #SodaCookies
[tobysmom] I don't know who write the tweets for stewart-Hass, but they are hilarious!
[derek] dennys there
[JTG Daugherty Racing] They are very creative!!
[tobysmom] They are......not expecting that from you, Todd :}
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Its in me, but I often can't be as edgy as I want to be... :-)
[tobysmom] Appreciated.....you've handled the last couple of weeks very well.
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Deep breaths help.
[tobysmom] for sure
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Got stuck behind 31
[tobysmom] Is no one typing, or is my computer acting up again
[JTG Daugherty Racing] no typing
[caligirl] They just showed Bobby n Jordan flagwave
[tobysmom] on what caligirl?
[tobysmom] Stewart-Haas Racing @StewartHaasRcng 3m Stewart on lap 211: "We're better on entry, we're just tight everywhere else." P23
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Anything yet JD
[jaa 47] hey again
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Maybe a different browser?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] nope, gone again
[tobysmom] I've had to go to Google Chrome
[JTG Daugherty Racing] I'm on Safari
[derek] well i always use google crhrome
[caligirl] sure would be nice if JTGD could get some Toyota sponsorship.
[jaa 47] looks like the test paid off
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Not sure how that works. You do see it occassionally on some cars and trucks. Might just be open inventory and the team just puts Toyota on there.
[caligirl] Hope there's another test in the works
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Final stop of the day in a few laps for the 47 team. Fuel, 4 tires, air pressure adjustments.
[derek] hope theres another test and then bobby does good in the race
[tobysmom] Hope the info learned in this race will REALLY make a change in the car handling next week
[JTG Daugherty Racing] No handling at Daytona, just aero
[tobysmom] Oh ok
[jdonovan] There we go....
[derek] wave around?
[derek] still gotta a chance for a good finish
[JTG Daugherty Racing] yes, wave around. Good to the end, assuming he didn't run over debris from the 55
[tobysmom] Ok......does Gordon have a shot at beating Johnson?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] I don't think anyone is going to beat Johnson today.
[roll400ex] I sure hope so.
[roll400ex] The 24 can do it
[tobysmom] Bummer......This is the one track I'd love to see Gordon win at
[derek] jimmies gonna blow a tire
[roll400ex] Where's the 47 for the green now?
[JTG Daugherty Racing] sorry, 25
[derek] CALLED IT
[tobysmom] Wow you called that derek
[JTG Daugherty Racing] well there you go!
[JWilson47] There goes jimmy
[derek] lol my dads a jimmie fan you should see him
[tobysmom] Gordon 3rd?
[caligirl] Wally flagwave
[JWilson47] Jimmy already top 15
[tobysmom] Jimmy driving angry????
[JTG Daugherty Racing] Jimmie top-10
[derek] good job jamie mac
[caligirl] Go Jamie! Go Clint!
[tobysmom] Switched over to Jamie's audio.....very quiet

[jdonovan] google chrome wasn't working right
[JTG Daugherty Racing] I prefer Firefox, seems to be the most stable for me.
[jdonovan] that is what i had to switch to
[caligirl] Thanks for answering all our questions this week Todd and putting up with ALOT. Still bummed, but a happy car hopefully will help everyone.
