i LOVE how Mark Martin came from 22nd to 5th in the last 45 laps and got no interveiws, no coverage, nothing. Nice to see how a driver who passes a lot of people gets ignored.

I was home last night since all racing this weekend out here was rained out. Sat down and tried to watch the race but seriously, after 50 laps I had heard enough of the FOX broadcast that I just shut it off and worked on other stuff.

Yeah, where was Martin at the end of the race? Heck, he may have just been worn out and went away.

SO!?! Did Jr. "take out" Burton? His wheels CLEARLY turned right! SO OBVIOUS!!! :rolleyes:

I didn't get to watch every minute of the race...did anybody mention Poole during the race, or before or after?

They had a moment of silence during the pre race show for Poole.

As for Jr. Its hard these days to tell when he either takes someone out on purpose or just runs out of talent. :eek: But I saw the wheels turn like you did so who knows?

I wish I could have seen all of the show.

As for Kyle..... Wow. When he has the car he usually gets the win. But the same can be said for Jeff and Jimmie and a just a few others.

When it became apparant that Jimmie wasn't going to win, that's when I really settled down to enjoy an awesome race.

From what I heard on the radio, Kyle went 3 wide to take the lead. He knew it was time to go and he got going...:shock:

It's nice to see a driver get up on the wheel like that. How many times have we seen Tony or Kevin do the same thing?...:scratch:

:)

Yeah, but how about "old man" Burton? :eek: After going to the wall to come back like that was incredibly impressive.

Anywho...Kyle did a great job this weekend. Everyone else talks about crew chiefs and equipment being the reasons they're not doing so well...and need a better ride or different crew chief. Shoot...Kyle gets in it and wins...different crew chiefs, different teams, different type racing machine, different series. Look at the 18...same team and car Labonte and Yaley had...what'd they do in it??? (yes, I know Labonte got a championship...but, last couple seasons) I just wonder...does driver ability to provide in put and ability/willingness to drive hard have as much or even more to do with how well they do??? I just wonder...Kyle just gets "lucky" I guess. :rolleyes: Sure wish he'd stayed with my Hendrick gang...but, glad to see him doing well. Still hope JG gets the championship though.;)
