welcome to America where being able to get to 50 Mbps in 2013 is something people can hype.
 
2013-08-18 03:26:46 PM  
Could use a screengrab of the 47 across the grass with Pure Michigan on it

You can get up to 90 here

/on 40 myself

Every time any flaps pop up they need to shoot out multi-colored smoke.

Oh my word....

Danica is back on the lead lap, she need to go for it one of these times.

/won't work
 
2013-08-18 03:32:13 PM  
Ohhhhh, that was frightening.
 
2013-08-18 03:32:24 PM  
WOW!
 
2013-08-18 03:32:25 PM  
Kyle tried his damndest to cause a huge one there
 
2013-08-18 03:32:46 PM  
How did they miss KyB there? Wow...
 
2013-08-18 03:32:46 PM  
I'm thinking that maybe the new tires aren't very great
Dunno how Rowdy saved that, but that was a helluva save
 
2013-08-18 03:32:52 PM  

DanZero: You can get up to 90 here


can get 75 here with one provider, think another goes even faster. And that 75 is probably going up soon anyway.

I wouldn't be surprised if we get a big one yet

good_2_go: TSN just said they're showing the truck race at Mosport. I hope they use the Speed announcer crew. We don't need curling announcer Vic Rauter in the booth for a live race.


He's got a lot of seniority though, and he seemed to have gotten his start in motorsports.  I've got a video somewhere of him announcing an endurance race from Mosport back in the early 80's.

I must be tired, I can't stop laughing at the thought of confetti bombs going off all over the place. "Holy shiat, sparkles, stay low!"
 
2013-08-18 03:39:54 PM  
4 wide at the restart!  WOW
 
2013-08-18 03:40:46 PM  
I missed the Kyle crash, as I was in the kitchen putting sme chuck roast in the crock pot for enchiladas tonight.  So let me add: Dammit Kyle!1
 
2013-08-18 03:42:26 PM  
Okay, so we've got a car where teams are forced to put too much camber in, need to keep the splitter 100% even to the track, and have to run soft rear springs to compensate for the giant spoilers, and if they get side by side they lose the wall of air the car is "leaning on."

So at fast tracks, you have snap-loose cars, and at intermediate tracks, you still haven't solved "aero push."

Both result in restart wreckfests that string out to single file "We can't pass in dirty air!" segments when you get a long green flag run.

Do I have that right?

So, what's the verdict on the Gen6?

(Remember, you're not allowed to criticize the product, lest you get fined by NASCAR.)

@jeff_gluck:

Via MrsDGilly, D.Gilliland accidentally sent a text to D.Ragan that said, "Good morning baby. Call me when you wake up. I love you." LOLOL!
 
2013-08-18 03:43:00 PM  
The weather started getting rough. The tiny car was tossed.
 
2013-08-18 03:43:20 PM  
Long John Silvers with the grease fire.

@GoodyearRacing
Seeing several high temp issues on RF tires at @MISpeedway, including cars of @DaleJr, @KyleBusch and @jpmontoya on that last set of stops.
 
2013-08-18 03:47:28 PM  
@SiriusXMNASCAR
Due to the 88 car getting into the wall, @joeylogano Driver 2 Crew chatter can now be heard on Sirius 85 and XM 225.

a little, but all things considered, it should have been UGLY. the fact that it ended with just a li'l crumpl--

spun out again?

bah

I have the strangest feeling of deja vu.

ski9600: Pics of enchiladas or it ain't real


So far, it's just chunks of raw meat in a crock pot and a bunch of spices.  I usually make a very gringo version with ground hamburger meat, but I am trying shredded beef tonight for the first time.  Got some family coming over to eat later today.  I'll consider it a success if no one gets food poisoning.

A lot of pit strategy right now.  It'll be interesting to see how it plays out.

Jensaarai: So, what's the verdict on the Gen6?


Well my verdict would be to replace them with big blue super birds but we certainly don't want the drivers to be exposed to any type of danger nowadays.
 
2013-08-18 03:52:35 PM  
@dcaraviello
Two tires and fuel for Kes. Debate over radio betwn Brad and Paul over whether to pit. "Big risk if we don't. Could end up 28th," Wolfe said


@dcaraviello
Kes: "I don't know, man. I really don't want to pit." Eventually Roger Penske came over radio: "We've got to pit," he said. End of debate.
 
2013-08-18 03:54:07 PM  
I like the Gen6 car.  Less stable, a bit safer, more of an unknown at this point.
 
2013-08-18 03:54:57 PM  
No! Don't tell Carl to "mow down" people!
 
2013-08-18 03:55:11 PM  
I have a feeling JLo and Kurt are gonna wind up taking each other out
 
2013-08-18 03:55:55 PM  
Did ESPN mic the crowd?
 
2013-08-18 03:56:12 PM  
Old Man Martin in the lead.  Somebiacth!
 
2013-08-18 03:56:37 PM  
I never thought I'd cheer for KuBu, but I hope he puts Logano either in the wall or in the grass

Haha that works
 
2013-08-18 03:58:46 PM  
These restarts *are* exciting as hell, though.

If only these drivers were given the tools to keep it up for longer than 2-3 laps.

And I think that's why NASCAR is throwing the caution flag for  everything and even sometimes *nothing* to bunch the cars back up.
 
2013-08-18 04:00:27 PM  
too many front runners NEED a win today. I think it's gonna end ugly.
 
2013-08-18 04:01:11 PM  
Martin leads.

I can't hold my breath for 13 laps...
 
2013-08-18 04:01:11 PM  
@dmcnulty12
The chances of Jeff Gordon making the Chase get longer and longer each lap at MIS as he runs 20th.
 
2013-08-18 04:02:12 PM  
Go Mark!  Go Joey!

But really, Go Mark!!!
 
2013-08-18 04:02:31 PM  
@brantjames
Remember when Mark Martin was going to retire?


@brantjames
Remember when Mark Martin said this Joey Logano kid would be really good?

QueenMamaBee: I never thought I'd cheer for KuBu, but I hope he puts Logano either in the wall or in the grass


I love the idea!

/may it be so
