This "win / crash" thing seems to be an epidemic this year... if Carl crashes at Bristol, that will just be crazy!!! LoL

I wasn't surprised to see Jeff Gordon crash yesterday. His days of being perpetually lucky are long over, that's for sure. So I figured that he'd have a bad finish yesterday, though obviously I did not specifically anticipate a crash. I like Carl Edwards so I was happy to see him win. (Much happier than I would have been if Stewart had won after leading practically the whole race.)

There was much rejoicing!

I was glad that Carl Edwards won! But my driver Dale Jr. did VERY,VERY WELL he finished 8th,one better than he did last week I DEFINATELY D.Jr. winning some races this year; he's a good driver NEVER causes crashes (he's a good ol' NC boy); I like KURT Busch but NOT his brother and I can't stand Kevin Harvick or Denny Hamlin; I am 500% Hendrick motorsports girl but Dale Jr's #1 fan and always will be; with Jimmie Johnson 2nd and JG 3rd.

GO! DALE JR.GO!!! THE 88 WILL DOMINATE!!!!! emoticon

Well if it can't be Jeff (which it probably can't 2 races in a row) then my next pick would be Trevor, who's probably not going to win another race for a while, so then my pick goes to Kurt Busch. I've always liked him and he's a good racer.

There was much rejoicing!

Oh well. The only reason why any of us hates Jimmie is for the fact that he won like 28 championships in a row. I used to like him...until the year that Jeff was 300+ points in the lead of the points chase...but then the points got reset and Jimmie started the Chase (a totally ridiculoous idea... ) first in the standings. Jimmie's first championsthip really was/should have been Jeff's 5th but he got screwed. emoticon

Things may go the same route for Trevor, who knows? Unless/until they do I'll just keep on cheering for him...and hoping he doesn't turn out to be Jimmie Johnson number 2...

There was much rejoicing!

My pick is always Jeff Gordon, but I doubt that he's got it in him to do it twice in a row. I still just don't really think that he's still got the fire in his belly...

I like Kurt Busch and I'd love to see him win at his home track. Kyle I can live without because I think he's a hotheaded jackass...but he is a good driver and pretty entertaining to watch. I'd love to see Trevor Bayne win again and I wouldn't mind seeing most of the other drivers win a race, but for me Jeff will always be my first choice.

I thought of something last night...do any of you remember what happened the last time Jeff Gordon got behind a talented driver who he thought deserved a chance? That man became the one most of us love to hate because he won like 15 championships in a row. So I have this feeling that if Jeff is behind Trevor and sort of bringing him along...in a few years most of us are going to hate him just as much as we hate Jimmie. Just something to keep in mind...

There was much rejoicing!

I think Kyle is funny. And sometimes, watching him drive a car that's almost sideways and pulling it off is kind of awesome.

I've got to go with my boy Jimmie Johnson. But I think Carl Edwards could do it too (he is another of my favorites). Sorry, but I can't stand the Busch boys.

Congrats to Jeff Gordon on the win at PIR


So who is everyone's pick for Vegas?

I'd personally like to see one of the Busch brothers win, but only cause I like the "hometown boys" to win at their track.
