47forever-in 15 min.
47forever-sorry. listenin to dubstep.
megan-figured as much
47forever-yup lol. this guy is pretty good. i just found out bout him
47forever-oh megan did u hear that Penske is switching to Ford next year? :D
megan-I did hear that
47forever-im happy they did that. so Dodge can suck it.
megan-you know I drive a dodge, right haha
n47-Chevy is the best
47forever-if i ever became president i would put Chevy and Dodge outa buisiness
megan-that's just crazy
47forever-lol. well Ford was first and is still the best.
megan-well, everyone is entitled to their opinions
47forever-well, without Ford there would most likely be no automobiles today
megan-ya, I'm sure someone would've figured out...anyway my first car was a ford, so I'm good with it
47forever-slim chance though
47forever-where was Bobby last practice?
megan-will be going out 15th in quals
47forever-what? arent we goin out this practice?
megan-well prop but qual order is set up by 1st prac, was just stating that's where he was going out...that's all
megan-so wait, who were you listening to
47forever-a person i just found, his name is Noisestorm. hes pretty good
47forever-gosh i hate this cut on my finger.
megan-cool....finger cuts suck
megan-5th of 21 so far
47forever-mine is probably worse than all of ur finger cuts combined.
megan-well, you can keep it then, I don't want it
47forever-i was in shop class and i was trying to chisel out a nail out of a piece of wood and my finger was near the top, the chisel slipped and cut my finger really deep. it pulled up some muscle and bled really bad but it didnt even hurt. it just stang a little.
megan-well, I've never had that happen so I cannot really compare
47forever-a little bit more and it wouldve hit bone
megan-20th of 32
mj-How r u megan
megan-i'm alright, yourself?
mj-Not to shabbu
mj-Kinda miss being in phx this time of year
megan-weather looks good, I'd miss it too
mj-Sounds like you r about ready for some snow down there
megan-I hate snow, so if it would like to just sort of skip here, I'd be good with that
megan-well a person can only wish
mj-Been such a mild Midwest winter I suppose we deserve a little yet this year
megan-I guess...but seriously it could just skip it
mj-At least you are north of the other crazy weather going on just south of you
megan-so, what track are you going to next?
mj-Not sure yet...may trek down to Bristol for spring race
mj-How about u?
megan-Bristol would be fun. umm no current plans as of yet
mj-Or I may just wait till Midwest season starts in june

mj-I believe currently p29
megan-well, make sure to say hi to everyone for me whenever you go
mj-Dropped a couple spots
nate-10 car must be fast car david reuiman is in 4 or so
megan-he hasn't been out in awhile either, though...if that makes a difference
nate-i really dont judge tell during or after the race so this dont matter to me really
mj-Not a bad little jump
jdonovan47-haha im back lol.
nate-hopefuly he will get top 20 wonder if their using any of their built cars yet
mj-Will be glad when they get all the old chassis funneled through the system and get in the new cars
jdonovan47-i would guess so
mj-Don't believe so...think it will be a couple more weeks
megan-ya that's what I was thinking
jdonovan47-new engines from TRIAD already right?
mj-I just don't remember exact date of first new chassi
mj-Yes on engines
jdonovan47-hopefully the first 1 1/2 mile
mj-First 1 1/2 next week @ Vegas correct?

jdonovan47-idk i dont know Todds style yet
jdonovan47-todd #2 lol
nate-does raceveiw work for practice and stuff
HughG47-We been on the track much today>
jdonovan47-no trackpass only works for race and quals
jdonovan47-well pitcommand works for quals
nate-okay im gunna get it sometime this weekend
HughG47-I did not get to a\watch any of the earlier prac. Just joined in when they was talking about 5 drivers to backups
nate-anychance of rain this weekend anyone know
mj-Kenseth, McDowell, Newman,
mj-Have to think of other 2
mj-They have said dry all weekend
nate-just have to hope montoya dont hit anything
mj-Supposed to be warmer out there tomorrow by about 10 degrees
mj-Truex to a backup I believe
mj-The 33 is the other to go to backup
HughG47-I love that Southpoint Casino. I always go to the buffet there at least once per trip to Vegas
mj-Is it on the strip or downtown
Trish-Did not see first practice, what do we all think
HughG47-5 mile south of the strip. The car hauler park there before doing the parade down the strip Thur evening
mj-Have to head out that way next time out...c if I can make a few sheckles
megan-24th right now
mj-To bad we couldn't have gotten into the new mwr cars last year
nate-yea the latest and greates
nate-dw is annoying
Trish-michael would not allow that to happen
nate-we were about 30th 1st practice
Trish-i am not watching on tv, the leaderboard shows 25th now, i look at average speed and time, not so much the fast lap
nate-nope we will find out race day
Trish-so you guys are not doom and gloom
Trish-what is going on with the 17
Trish-good, was not sure, when i saw dead last, had me worried
megan-don't know, not really paying attention
nate-yea if he goes 3 laps down sunday ill be like wtf and still watch him race every weekend
Trish-are u napping
megan-no, doing hw
Trish-he won't though
nate-i hope not
Trish-last weekend was a different bobby and was more confident in his equipment than i have seen in along long long time
Trish-or shall i say the guy on top of the pitbox
Trish-equipment is quasi mwr, and yikes on that
47Fan-Hey all! Any idea if Bobby has done any qual trim this practice or all race trim?
mj-Take care the car, qual, and let bob run a good race...and look forward to the updated equipment coming
mj-Change in cc
Trish-what s the communication like between he and berrier
nate-top 20 weekend
Trish-that is the main thing
Trish-i agree top 20 can happen, as long as no one takes us out, vickers is not racing but there are others who are racing that should not be, jmo
47Fan-Bobbys car looks smooth off of 4
nate-is he gunna win
mj-Yep and restarts here are crazy
Trish-the top guys in speed did qualifying laps,that is why i look at the big picture
47Fan-Have we only done Race trim? If so were pretty quick.
nate-im glad they have the side by side restarts i disliked the single file
mj-Not sure what they r working on...my guess would be race trim
47Fan-Yea me to.
nate-not to sure when he started both practices he wasnt runnin so hot so not sure
47Fan-Yea, but for this practice it was like every time he went out he got faster. And the shortest run he's had was 4 laps I think, wouldnt make sense to do a quall run for 4 laps.
mj-I think they know what they have and r willing to sacrifice qual position for better raceday car
nate-their he is
47Fan-Looks really smooth off of 4
47Fan-like DW was saying earlier the guys that arent working the wheel off of 4 are usually the better cars, his hands were smooth just then!
nate-yea im a bealiver
47Fan-Me aswell, IMO picking up Berrier is going to be a huge boost, have always been a fan of him, and I think he and Bobby will work great with each other.
mj-Earlier qual time may be better tomorrow...I believe qual goes off around noon tomorrow so it will get hotter throughout
nate-yea i cant spell
47Fan-Bobby seemed to do that alot last year to for the Sat. Quals. Make sure to go out earlier and in the better track conditions.
nate-22 looks out of control
nate-whats yall predictions for sunday
mj-Have to like the 5
nate-how about whats your predictions for bobbys finish
megan-I'll go for another top 15
47Fan-I'd be pleased with a Top 20 for this early in the year.
nate-if they go to back up cars do they start in back?
47Fan-As long as were competitive, and yes they do!
mj-I think a 15-20 would be good, like to c higher but under conditions I think they would be happy with that
47Fan-I do think if we've been in Race trim all practive, we could have a Top 10-15 car though.
nate-yea it seems everybody pushes their cars in practice and bobby does not just takes it smooth
mj-Just hope it doesn't turn into a fuel mileage race
47Fan-Yep, Bobby never pushes it in practice.
HughG47-I expect for Joe N. that his backup car is his Vegas primary car.
mj-I believe McDowells is as well
47Fan-Yea to bad for those teams, I like the fact that almost every car has a sponsor this weekend, only ones that dont are Nemecheck Stremme and maybe McDowell.
nate-no truck race this weekend
mj-Yep...very nice to c
mj-No...trucks not back until martinsville
47Fan-Wow over a 1 month break for trucks, weird.
mj-I believe they have like 5 weeks between races
nate-yea thats weired
mj-Lost a few races again this year...I believe they are down to 25 or so
47Fan-Yea, they shortened the Scheduele even more this year, from 25 to 22
mj-On the plus side they are running Rockingham this year
megan-@NASCAR47 Bobby Labonte and Todd Berrier discussing practice at PIR twitpic.com/8r6btm

Trish-cool that word is not filtered
Trish-he did alot of laps last practice, which is a good thing,
Trish-tell KK cars looks like it is the car to beat ;)
megan-well I can send him a tweet, but I'm sure he knows it, especially after he won the last race here...
megan-and yes, it's good that Bobby ran a good amount of laps
Trish-i forgot about him winning

megan-not that i have heard
