I'm a Tony fan, but I'd love to see it be Jr.'s year! I'll be happy to see Tony win a race or two with his new team.

Renee it definitely takes time. I actually have restarted the program 2 or 3 times because I would get going well then something would happen, I would make excuses and end up back at square one.

Insert something brilliant and fabulous here

Candy, congrats!

I hope you do better with Stage 3 than I am -- I still haven't been able to consistently reward myself every day for 2 weeks. It's getting ridiculous.

This has nothing to do with NASCAR, I went from Stage 2 to Stage 3 on the SPARKS DIET today. I don't know how long it is going to take me to get through it. I think it will be longer than two weeks to get through each section, I will make it through all of them though.

Gabby there are quite a few sites out there that carry Nascar news. Here are a few of the links:

www.nascar.com
www.jayski.com
www.foxsports.com
www.speedtv.com
www.espn.com

Also they don't have microphones in the cars...they talk to them through their radio headsets. Every driver has several radio frequencies they can use during the race...That is what you are listening to if you use a scanner at the race...just the conversation between the spotter and the driver, or the driver and the crew chief or owner.

Does anyone out there have aol for internet. I found a different way to get on line so I can use my computer. It is different but it works. Back to the shoot out. I am so ready for racin. Jan, that would be great if they would race at different tracks. We have a bunch of race track here in the US that they could use. I could also add a few more tracks through the year as practice. They need to quit using engineers on the track. And get rid of the microphones in the cars. Let the drivers say what they really want to say and not get in trouble.

I think it should be held at a non sanctioned Nascar track...this would make it truly unique.

Now who wants to write someone and sell this idea...LOL.

LOL - yeah, Katherine - didn't work out so well for Sterling, did it? And he'll never live it down! ha

I am more than a little shocked on the new format of the shootout.... and yet, I suppose not much should shock me. I just read where Elliott is out of a job now. :( Boooooooooo!!!!!!! I just love him.

Jan, that was racing. bring your car and run it till the tires were gone. I remember when the driver had to get out and help the pit crew out on getting the job done. There was a race when Dale was driving the UPS car and the race was red flagged and he got out of the car to look at the damage. He was in first and ended up losing the race.

Thanks Mema? So there is Jan!!!!

I heard a side note on Lucille Ball the other night. She was always in love with Desi, even after the divorce. He was just to hard to live with, but always called her. Then when he died she really didn't want to be out in public or around people. Sad, has nothing to do with Nascar or the shootout, but intersting.

No Amanda, listen....do it the old fashioned way. No electronics, no changing out broken parts, tire changes only, throw the green and run it until the checkered, limited small field, no points....it could also be run with street legal cars only. When your car breaks down or is wrecked beyond driving...you're out. Did you read the article? One guy was finished due to a blown water hose...no chance to repair it...he was out. Sounds like a fun race to me.

Here is another interesting fact on Nascar today. Did you know that twice in Nascar history races were held during the holidays between Christmas and New Years? Bet we couldn't talk them into doing that now...LOL...what a great way it would be to give us speed heads a fix during our withdrawal symptoms!

I was reading an article on the NASCAR site about the new format for the Shootout and also read that Tony and Ryan don't qualify to be in it because they are on a team with no, or not enough, owner's points. How disappointing! Here's an excerpt:

"More interesting is who will not be on the track: Stewart-Haas' new two-car team of Tony Stewart and Ryan Newman; Earnhardt Ganassi's Martin Truex Jr. or Juan Montoya; or 2008 Chase contender Clint Bowyer, who will slide into the No. 33 to make room for Casey Mears in the 07.

With the rule change for 2009, four drivers lose out on making the race based on their 2008 pole-winning qualifying run: Newman (Phoenix), Joe Nemechek (Talladega), Patrick Carpentier (New Hampshire), Paul Menard (Daytona)."

I guess I'll be pulling for Jr.!
