      Yeah i'm happy but also a little bit shocked that he pulled it off considering how poorly he has run all season & then suddenly he's battling for a win.

      Tough break for Jimmie though & had that not occured then i don't think anybody challenges him & he walks away with another win at Dover but i guess you take then anyway you can.

        Anytime the 48 gets black flagged I smile. Mark finished in the top 10 and didn't get wrecked so I guess it was an ok race. Got to figure Montoya is going to win an oval soon, he has come close several times.

        • Congrats to Tony! I'm glad he won.

          Had fun yesterday at our first NW race. Surprised Kyle Busch took 4 tires today on that last caution after what happened yesterday.

          • I find it odd that I have on more than one occasion found myself rooting for Montoya...I normally can't stand him but something about his attitude of late has me warming up to the guy. For sure a fun race to watch!

            • Sad for Bobby fans. They say they're not replacing him, but this is kind of the first step. I know they have their reasons, but I find it odd not to put Allmendinger in at Sonoma. Road courser, you know (He didn't crash out twice last week in IndyCar, right? )?

              Give Bobby a decent car and he'll get it in the top 5-10.

              Driver change in the #47 at MIS? MORE: Could #47 JTG/Daugherty Racing be looking to make a driver change at Michigan International Speedway next weekend? Although Bobby Labonte has driven the No. 47 car since 2011, with the team teetering just within the top 30 in owner points, sources tell FOXSports.com that AJ Allmendinger has been approached to fill the seat and offer a fresh opinion. Labonte, who turned 49 on Saturday, has 21 career Sprint Cup wins but has not posted a top-five finish in the car since he debuted with JTG/Daugherty in the 2011 Daytona 500. The 2000 Sprint Cup champion scored top 10 finishes last year at Daytona and Martinsville Speedway but his best result in 2013 was 15th in the Daytona 500. After a busy month of May in the IndyCar Series  including a top 10 finish in the Indy 500  Allmendinger, 31, returns to stock cars this weekend at Pocono Raceway with Phoenix Racing. He will start 18th on Sunday after qualifying was rained out on Friday. Team owner Tad Geschickter could not be immediately reached for comment.(FoxSports)
              MORE AJ Allmendinger will replace Bobby Labonte next week at Michigan International Speedway as JTG Daugherty Racing looks for answers for its struggling performance. Labonte is tentatively scheduled to return to the car the following week at Sonoma Raceway. The 2000 Cup champion, Labonte is mired in 28th in the standings with a season-best of 15th at Daytona. Having driven for JTG Daugherty Racing since 2011, Labonte does not have a contract for next season, but team co-owner Tad Geschickter said Saturday that this change is just to get a second opinion. The team does not have sponsorship for five races in 2013 and Allmendinger could run all of those five but that is still to be determined, said team co-owner Brad Daugherty. "We're not replacing Bobby  he's still our driver," Geschickter said. "But we have a few races that we don't have any sponsor activation and it was pretty easy to do (a change and) some benchmarking. The big issue for a single-car team, how else do you benchmark for your car? & Michigan is the only one set in stone (for a change). Bobby will be back in the car at Sonoma. It is just a good opportunity for us to verify what Bobby thinks the main issue is." Allmendinger declined comment on the reports Saturday, deferring to Geschickter.(Sporting News)(6-8-2013)

                  The aerial shots of Pocono were beautiful.

                  The TV coverage by TNT was not.
                  We saw more commercials than laps.
                  The first two cautions were during commercials.
                  Self-promo TNT commercials and redundant sponsor ads.
                  Louis, the manly grill king, McCafe skinny dippers splashing each other etc.
                  Ridiculous and disappointing. TNT got greedy at the NASCAR fans' expense I say.
                  TNT showed very little pit road action, the place many races are won or lost.
                  Whenever the caution came out or green light pit stops began, they went to commercial.
                  I feel lucky that I was at least able to see the restarts.

                  Anyone else unhappy with the TNT coverage ?
                  Give me Fox, ESPN and SPEED.

                    It always takes me a few races to get used to the new network.

                    The thing I didn't like? The ad bar (or whatever it's called) at the top of the screen. Total waste of space. They could have put a logo on the position scrolly thingy (Sorry for getting too technical ). It just shortened the viewing area too much.

                    • Another disappointing finish for Mark after almost winning this race last year. I fell asleep during the race too. That's what I get for staying up till 4 in the morning then getting up at 11:30 to watch the race

                          • RIP Jason.

                            Leffler killed in Sprint Car wreck in NJ: Details are still spotty, but NASCAR Nationwide regular Jason Leffler has been severely injured in a wreck at Bridgeport Speedway in New Jersey. Leffler was racing a Sprint Car at the track's "Night of Wings." While the details of the wreck are still yet to emerge, Leffler apparently flipped in the track's front stretch and, according to eyewitness accounts, was extracted from the car on a board. He was airlifted out of the track via helicopter. The remainder of the night's racing was cancelled. Leffler has spent most of his decade-plus career in the Nationwide series, running full schedules from 2006 to 2011. He has two wins, 42 top fives and 107 top 10s in the Nationwide series. He's also run 73 races in Sprint Cup, most recently at Pocono last week.(Yahoo Sports)
                            UPDATE: NASCAR driver Jason Leffler died after an accident Wednesday night at a dirt car event at Bridgeport Speedway. The 37-year-old Leffler, a two-time winner on the Nationwide Series, was pronounced dead shortly after 9:00pm/et, New Jersey State Police said..(Associated Press)(6-12-2013)
