                • Thanks for posting all the pictures, AZ. Love the ones when they were kids.


                  Just finished watching the truck race. I'm basically a pacifist. I break up fights between dogs, people and ducks. But...Nemechek deserved that tackle. And we should sign Custer for the D.

                  • What a complete jerk newman is for the things he said about tony when it was him that kept running into tony & expect him to just take it & to say some of the most disrespectful things i think i have ever heard!

                    Calling tony bipolar? Seriously? what the hell is your problem? He brought you into his organization from it's inception & that is how you are gonna talk about him? Maybe you have a problem with being let go? I don't know, but things he said & how he conducted himself, were completely out of line & to see tony take the high road when told what newman said about him...that just made newman look all the more of a jerk!

                        Newman can call Tony a jerk, an idiot and whatever else he wants, but when he mentioned him being back in a Sprint car and anger issues and all that, that was dirty fighting, a low blow.

                        My daughter had some NASCAR app on her phone, listening to Gordon's radio. Gordon said that Newman was chopping the corner the whole race and getting into everyone. He wasn't surprised that he was involved in an accident.

                        • Man, Kyle Larson was coming at the end. Had Hamlin not had such a great restart, Larson would have no doubt given Hamlin a fight for the win.

                          • Ok boys & girls now that the chase is upon us, how bout some predictions...who do you have as the first 4 out & who is your favorites to make the final 4?

                            First 4 out

                            1. Buescher - can't see them gaining near enough points to advance
                            2. Elliott - i think lack of experience & pressure will be a factor
                            3. Dillon - same as above & lack of consistency
                            4. Tough call here...either going with McMurray or shocker pick - Johnson & you may be saying the 48? seriously? well here is why...

                            McMurray has been running very well the past month & the 48 car has been completely off it's game for several months & i know jimmie & chad always turn it on come chase time but something seems different this time...we shall see.

                            Now my final 4

                            1. Harvick - very strong year again...should have at least 6 wins or more
                            2. Truex - much like harvick, super strong & should also have more wins
                            3. Kyle Busch - he is he champ & has a bunch of wins this season & gibbs is killing it across the board
                            4. another tough call for me...my heart wants to say Smoke but my head says Larson - tony was on a really strong stretch for a couple months & was consistent but the past few weeks have been ugly & i think has taken him out of rhythm...

                            Larson finally got his win & is looking really good & i think more wins are to come now & he has the youth factor in his third season...should be fun to watch how it all plays out.

                              Your final 4 I couldn't argue with ... Larson has been very competitive since his win, can't rule out Kyle, he is just too competitive ... unfortunately. Harvick and Truex have been running in the top 5ish all season and both seem to have something go wrong keeping them from more wins but both are racing very well. I have to admit that Hamlin has also been very competitive but I won't be rooting for him. Again, I can't argue with your final 4; and I don't really dislike any of those drivers either.

                              The first 4 out? Buescher I think is the easy one. I think Smoke is out early maybe one of the first 4. McMurray has 1 top 5, he will likely be out early. #48 won't make it to the final 4 but he will get past the first round. I am rooting for Elliott and he has 13 top 10s, 7 in the top 5 ... I think he makes it past the first round. I think that leaves Dillon likely out early ... first round.

                                I just have a feeling they can't just flip a switch anymore...over the past 17 races the 48 has just 4 top ten's & finished 22nd or worse 7 times, but also has only led 51 total laps in those 17 races & that is unheard of for that team.
