Time trials start around 9am. I'm so cheering for the "Franklin Flyer" Bill Prietzel to qualify and do well. Saw him run so many times at Hales Corners Speedway that used to be where the Menards is in Franklin in the 80's and '90's. Hell, I even won a demolition derby on that track. The last Memorial Day derby. Yes, there was banking. Not much, but enough for late models to get up on 3 wheels in the corners.

WTF? Stewart qualified 24th on a road course in the Sprint Cup?
 
2012-06-23 09:47:40 AM
I just checked the Sprint Cup schedule. Guess who took off for next Saturday's UFIA 400 presented by Fark.com from Drew Curtis' Kentucky Speedway? ME ME ME ME ME!!!

/yeah I know they call it the Quaker State 400, but who the fark cares since the track is located near Farkistan?
//also, Danica may actually run pretty well today

Yeah, this I'm excited about. Has she run a road course in any NASCAR level yet?

These are the only time I watch NASCAR. Bring on the road course nOObs!!!

Good for you! But I'm kinda getting sick of all the Saturday night races. Far too many of them. I'm generally out and about on a Saturday night, and the Mrs. doesn't like NASCAR... so Sunday afternoons are the perfect time for a race.

Obviously the classics like Daytona July, Bristol night race, Coke 600 should be held at night. But beyond that, its just annoying.

Maybe on TV but have you ever been in the South in the sun in July and August?

When its 98 degrees in the shade and the dewpoint is 93?

Sweet. I didn't even realize there was a Nationwide race today. I was planning on going to Sonoma tomorrow, but I used the money to buy a motorcycle instead.

It's kind of a goofy bike. KZ1000 police special. Used by Monterey County Sherriffs department. I know the cop who had it in service. It was only dropped once for a shoot out with a gangbanger. It runs perfectly, it looks pretty good. And it cost less than my bicycle.

Too bad Stephen Wallace ain't gonna be there to liven things up a bit.

Last year in Montreal - finished 24th, on the lead lap.

I absolutely love Road America. I really wish the Sprint Cup would swap out a cookie cutter track for Road America.

Either way, this has been the one Nationwide race I look forward to every year since they started in 2010 (I think?)

Who needs a Wallace when there is a Villeneuve?

Watching Jacques Villeneuve ruining the Nationwide races has become one of my favorite annual traditions!

I'm damn sorry I can't go to Sears Point tomorrow, but it should be an exciting race. So glad that Boris and Robby are in it! A lot of unexpected names, too, including David Mayhew making his 2nd ever NASCAR appearance and first ever cup race on the road course.

Hornish got pitfarked.

RaceBuddy working decent for anybody? Mine constantly freezes for a second or two, then comes back and the car has travelled half a lap.
 
2012-06-23 04:15:16 PM
Dammit, I hope that's not the end of Fellows today. He's always a favorite.
 
2012-06-23 04:20:08 PM
Danica suddenly remembered she's supposed to know how to road race? Sure, why not?
 
2012-06-23 04:22:52 PM
While we were away - full course yellow - TJ Bell in sand trap.

I look forward to seeing her run Sears Point next year. that'll be her real NASCAR road race cherry pop.

Oh sure, the Dalmatian is fast, but he doesn't have the four mile laps.

Damn, Kurt's getting passed around more than my sister on prom night.

Just kidding. I don't have a sister.

Jacques and KuBu near the front? This should end well.
 
2012-06-23 04:55:07 PM
Hah she got it.

Dave Kallmann @davekallmann
So Fellows had flat tire, no radio, two extra stops and is in 7th, on the move in #sargento200
 
2012-06-23 04:55:42 PM
Oops.
 
2012-06-23 04:55:44 PM

Smart move by Palludo - GTFO of Villeneuve's way.
 
2012-06-23 04:58:50 PM
I remember watching Villeneuve race at Road America back in his CART days.
 
2012-06-23 05:00:49 PM
Listening to MRN talking about Piquet racing Villeneuve - it's like a time warp back to 1981.
 
2012-06-23 05:03:28 PM
Kurt's reporting he's getting loose. Uh oh.
 
2012-06-23 05:06:52 PM
BTW for F1 fans, you'll enjoy the race tomorrow, Bob Varsha isn't part of the broadcast team this weekend.
