Jimmie Johnson wins. 24, 42 & 5 in the top 10 but no one makes any gains. I curse how figured out those guys have the chase now.

Repeat this for martinsville next week. ;)

I hate Bank of America and can't wait to dump them! :mad:

Wait...oh, the race? :eek:

I'll go with the 24 first, the 14 second, the 48 third, the 5 fourth, and JUAN! fifth.

And a caution with 22 1/2 laps to go! :p Jr. to be taken out by wreck with 5 laps to go.

edit: I'm currently looking for somebody at work who will take a bet with me...I'm gonna put up $5 on the 48 finishing in the top 20. Anytime I bet money I lose. LOL.

"Who come up with these race names?"

My thoughts exactly. Is "NASCAR Banking" a service of some bank out there in North Carolina? Or has Bruton lost a title sponsor for the race and had to make up a name?

I GOT IT! Nascar's making money by fixing the races with cautions...and taking that money to the bank! :rolleyes:

ONLY from Bank of America?!? I thought you could also get the Banking 500 from JPMorgan Chase...

The name of the race was changed when BofA took government TARP money to make it look like they were not5 using taxpayer dollars to sponsor "silly" things like a NASCAR race.

Previously: BofA 500
After Bailout: NASCAR Banking 500 only from BofA

Thought I'd throw that out there

I thought I saw ads last race for a BofA NASCAR banking package. With custom debit cards and checks. I figured that's what it was about

Ouch..... Jimmie on the pole with Martin by his side. Goooooo Mark!

Hamlin and Keselowski back on the track together this week.

Logano and Biffle, will the feud continue?

Should be a good week!

You can just check the stock footage from 2006-2008. No real change lol.
Hey, that's a good idea, I'm just going to watch the 07 chase next year. Shouldn't be much different except Gordon won 3 races.

I will bet there will be zero phantom cautions, and any debris cautions will be shown on TV. Convieniently eithere the debris will stop falling off cars, or Nascar will stop caring. I only say this because after the last time this got so much attention, Nascar stopped throwing the phantom cautions for a while.

I agree completely. I remember how last time (with Tony) we didn't get any debris cautions for a few races. :p

(However, if Kyle has a 7 second lead....all bets are off! ;) )
