I forgot to add that they have finally extended pit road to now include pits for all 43 cars. I have not seen anything other than some pics on the web but it looks as though they moved the entrance rather than the exit. It seems that they will now pit coming off of turn 3. I have seats in at the end of turn 4 and have seen many drivers fail to be able to enter the pits under the old configuration. I wonder how much the new entrance will come into play this weekend. :scratch:

Are any of you going to be there this weekend?

Man I still don't like that name. Call me and oldie or whatever...just don't think it's appropriate.

Last FOX race this year!

Praise the Lord! ;)

i think it is neat to see autism in the title of the race. i have a 6 year old brother with autism. it is a moody disorder. so it is perfect to see it at the monster mile. my brothers name is timmy. gordon will win the race.

I've been listening to Jr's incar from time to time and Lance and Jr have been doing a pretty good job. Jr was doing a good job of telling Lance what the car was doing and Lance keeping up with the changes
