No no no .. Thats not that actual start time, it is just the time I expect the first good wreck.

Really? omg .. I just went and looked it up and found out that the actual start time is 2:23 p.m. ET

Wow... pretty good guess on my part.

I change my wreck prediction to 3:35 then.

Only the insanity that is Indycar could make us actually look forward to a race at Pocono. Heh.

As for your track, could you imagine the carnage of Jacques Villeneuve going into the corkscrew in a Nationwide car? Heh.

I'm pretty disappointed about the loss of Montreal, though. It's a fun course for those cars. From what I understand, the whole deal fell apart due to a start time dispute that might have been a gambit to get a Cup date.

Shadow Blasko: You see the end of the truck race?


Yeah, that was some crazy shiat. They spent about half a lap trying their hardest to have that wreck. Heh.

Romain Grosjean is definitely a contender for this year's IREC championship. Milka Duno started the season strong, but her limited schedule is hurting her chances. Jacques Villeneuve put in a commendable effort in Nationwide and Touring cars, but Takuma Sato is currently the points leader, but he doesn't have anymore Indycar events to fark up. However, if Kurt Busch manages to wreck one more Finch car today before bailing, he's likely to be the favorite. Though a second suspension or loss of his super license would certainly help Grosjean's chances.

Is there Indycar news afoot?

crotchgrabber: What happened with f1? I put in a ton of hours this week and forgot about it.


On top of what ClavellBCMI said, Kimi clipped Alonso's rear wheel with his wing while everyone was derping it up, which cut down Alonso's tire, spun him, and then he stalled and couldn't get going.

Massa finished second, leading to the hilarious backhanded compliment by Vettel that "I knew Alonso was out when I realized I was racing Felipe."

Kobayashi beat Webber on the start, was in second for awhile, and held on to a podium.

SPEED channel shiat itself for a fair number of laps, treating us to a black screen then an extended commercial break that'd make an ESPN exec cream his pants. Then they cut to commercial as soon as Kamui started addressing the Japanese crowd in a language not-English.

Casey Mears has almost 10 years worth of Cup experience, including a Coke 600 win.

Meh. I don't care how much experience Casey has. He has always been a mediocre at best driver which is why he is basically a start and parker these days. Cole Whitt is on the uprise.

But none of that matters. Casey hit him on the rear going into a corner and caused the wreck. Pretty simple.

To quote myself.

Jensaarai: ClavellBCMI: Jensaarai: Whatever happens, at least it's not likely to be as retarded as the start to last night's F1 race.

Oh, you mean the start that will get Grosjean another one-race suspension (hope hope hope)?

Romain Grosjean is definitely a contender for this year's IREC championship. Milka Duno started the season strong, but her limited schedule is hurting her chances. Jacques Villeneuve put in a commendable effort in Nationwide and Touring cars, but Takuma Sato is currently the points leader, but he doesn't have anymore Indycar events to fark up. However, if Kurt Busch manages to wreck one more Finch car today before bailing, he's likely to be the favorite. Though a second suspension or loss of his super license would certainly help Grosjean's chances.


Though maybe the gas issue isn't his fault.

ClavellBCMI: vegaswench: QueenMamaBee: Harvick in the lead!!!! Too early for a happy dance?

This is Dega. I'd say anything less than a half quarter-lap to go is too soon, heh.

FTFY, if the truck race is any indication.


This is true! That ending was so intense.

Suprisingly, Kurt seems pretty level-headed and "well, that was pretty ridiculous" right now.

And there's the logical explanation for what happened.

Maybe Kurt HAS turned the corner. A year ago, he'd be screaming at people.
 
2012-10-07 04:13:28 PM  
I just don't know what to say after that interview.

I guess I still have Kyle...
 
2012-10-07 04:13:29 PM  
Sounds like ESPN died... and MRN is running a KuBu interview atm.
 
2012-10-07 04:13:30 PM  
Not had a problem on DISH, except the excruciating whine coming from KuBu's mouth.

Kurt, your problem is that you're incapable of taking stock of a situation and considering the people around you before you act, not that you have bad luck.

If that was whining, you need to check your ears. That was the most level-headed and "what ever" I've ever seen Kurt after something like that. And I've watched him since he was a rookie at Roush.

True at least he isn't yelling, but the "poor me" stuff has got to stop. It's just not healthy. He needs to take accountability and ownership of his mistakes.

I just...don't know anymore about him. Getting tired of defending him and listening to his excuses.

That's all relatively speaking. From anyone else, it'd be whining. It just happens to be that's a good day for him.

He probably didn't know he had a bag on his roof. Other than that falling off 200ft down the track, what danger was there? Safety crews are often around cars trying to limp back to the pits.

Except for KuBu having a KuBu finish to his time in the 51 (runs out of gas, gets spun around, end up on the apron, gets out of the car with his helmet off, sees the damage, gets back in sans helmet, fires it up, and takes off... with a safety crew gear bag on the rear deck, gets told to park it).

Looked to me like the passenger side window was gone, and a safety worker was leaned in towards the window with his hand in there when Kurt peeled out.

You can drop the darkside and root for 31. He never wins either but at least the most embarassing thing he does is get into slap fights with jeff gordon.

ski9600: What happened to the two by two drafts on the Restrictor Plate-Super Speedways?


NASCAR has taken multiple measures to restrict them. They shrank the air intake so they overheat if they push too long, they made it illegal to lube up the bumper so they slide across each other easier, and made it illegal for drivers to speak to each other over the radio to coordinate.

I kinda freaked out about how NASCAR was creating an unsafe situation earlier this year, but the teams have adapted somewhat. Mika makes fun of me for it now. ;)

Still a bit short, Denny. Need to stretch a segment or two.

LOL @ Kyle trying to force his way to the top lane when he fell back and saw it was Mears and Biffle behind him.

Somebody is going to blink, dive on to pit road, and cause a giant wreck.
 
2012-10-07 05:09:29 PM  
It's a good thing there aren't any Hendrick cars prone to bad luck in the front pack. Otherwise I might think they'd run out.

Jamie McMurray has been at or near the front almost all day. Guy hasn't had a top-five finish since Bristol -- in the late summer of 2011.

Agreed. These laps are the best, regardless of whether they wreck or not. It's the tension that is exciting. When they're actually racing.

2012-10-07 05:13:28 PM  
1) I don't know how the hell no know hit McMurray.

2) Gordon and KyBu need to lay off the pedal a hair, because they're sandwiching the cars between them and the lane leader to the point of wrecking.

Decision time for crew chiefs: This yellow gets many cars to end on mileage. But if caution comes again for GWC, they'd have to pit.

A combo of where they are when the yellow is thrown, as shown by video replay, where they come to rest on the track if they can't get refired, and a vague sense of "maintaining pace" for the cars still running that manage to cross the finish line.

I was commenting on his spinning into the infield trying to avoid the wreck, not his ce strategy. And I don't disagree that his dive into the grass, while funny, was the best thing to do.

Greg Biffle is literally telling ESPN they need to show what he did, but they can't be bothered since there's no in car shot.

/facepalm

Earlier in this thread when I doubted the capacity of Talladega to out-derp the Japanes Grand Prix, I was wrong. I am sorry for doubting you, dega.

Jeff Gordon on if 2013 car will change Dega racing: "It's gonna be awesome! Start buying your Talladega tickets now." Devilish grin.

catastrophe averted: So how many cars were ultimately involved? Looks like at least 25


Bingo!

Jenna Fryer @JennaFryer
25 cars listed in accident

Dustin Long @dustinlong
#NASCAR is saying there were 25 cars in the last-lap crash.

I don't mind Smoke hurling his helmet at another car. It's when he hurls his car at other cars that I get nervous.

See you Saturday night!

I'll put that in the Solar Flare prediction file.

This got me curious.

Turns out that Atlanta is 14 miles closer to me than Daytona.

Never knew that...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I believe I heard one of the commentators say that only 6 cars on the lead lap actually crossed the finish line. Dunno if that's true, but it's damned funny.

He's a wizard! The only way he could make it through *that* from the position he was in when it started without his car looking more like modern sculpture is magic!

In other news, @LewisHamilton griped @JensonButton unfollowed him. Then found out Button never followed him to begin with. #F1Problems
