Congrats to Tony for winning at Daytona, and more importantly for taking care of Kyle Bush laugh

If Kyle Busch did that to Tony Stewart, everyone would be calling for his head. Nice clean race for Kyle BTW. He deserved to win.

Its all good...I wouldnt call that "clean" racing...but he has nothing to whine about blocking that way..

Admit that if it was reversed that Stewart would be furious and nascar nation would boo KB out of town. Wrecking someone at the front near the finish line on a superspeedway like that is a good way to get someone killed.

I think you meant to say: "Wrecking YOURSELF at the front near the finish line on a superspeedway like that is a good way to get YOURSELF killed."

The Rat brought that on himself and he does it every time they race at Daytona or Dega. Heck, he was blocking with 40 to go and what sense does that make? Let me answer that for you: NONE. He got what he rightfully deserved by swerving in front of Stewart the second time after failing on the first block. Tony did nothing but hold his line.

That's right kyle did it all himself if he would have held his lline instead of going up to block he would have saved some cars GREAT Job tony

Sounds like I missed an interesting race.

It seems that controversy follows Kyle. If one is always in that area, there typically is a reason for it.

I didn't see exactly what happenned as I did not watch the race.

I will say this, when you race on the edge like Kyle and have a tendency to bang around on others, someone will pay you back.

That said, I don't by any stretch state that Smoke did this on purpose. Kyle has many people that owe him one and thats why he may never win a championship.

Most racers will race you as clean as you race them. Kyle does not at times race very clean. Earnhardt was somewhat the same but people feared Sr and they don't fear Kyle.

Yea smoke did nothing wrong. the rat was mirror driving, went down to block and Tony went up so then the rat tried to go back up and was too late. put his rear right side into smokes front and took himself out. and in typical cry baby spoiled brat fashion he storms off and wont talk to the reporters. Really shows a guys character when he will only talk when things are going his way. I dont even think its a matter of needing to grow up, I think its just who he is and yea I dont know how he will ever win a championship driving "wreckers or checkers" with the lack of respect he gives everyone else.

You know I hate Shrub as much as anyone, but had the situation been reversed I would say Tony tried to block and ended up wrecking himself and a bunch of other cars just like Shrub did. It was obvious what happened. Am I going to bash Kyle for trying to get up and make the block? Nope. Not heading to the finish line of a race. Am I going to fault Tony. Nope. He made the move to pass and held his line. Could he have moved up? Sure. On the last lap driving to the checkers...no way.

I'm just glad no one got hurt. Shrub took a hard turn into the wall and then got tattoo'd by a car right in the driver's side. I think these COT cars have taken a lot of good racing away, but I certainly can't say they aren't safer.

Glad Kyle is OK. And it's nice to know Kyle is still light years away from winning a Championship based on continued poor decision making on the track!

Looks like it was just you and me. wink

Being a Stewart fan and a Pyle non-fan - I caught myself clapping and cheering like an insensitive jerk when the wreck happened. I figured Pyle would understand.

For the record, if the roles were reversed, I would've [PoorWordUsage] and moaned at Tony for making a dumb move when he might have been able to hold off the charge for that last little bit to the checker.

In my book, even a 2nd to the race dominator beats a 13th or whatever Pyle slid in at and a torn up car - or 15. smirk

well i think all the talk bout if it was the other way around

it would be a different story

it certainly would be the only difference between tony and kyle is a few yrs and now tony is an owner and has mellowed some but not to far back i remember tony punching reporters and staying things that gibbs had to apoligize to sponsers to keep them

so it might be a good thing that kyle dont talk after the race..could be gibbs told him to just keep his mouth shut if he cant say anything good

but i dont think tony needs to be put up on a pedastal just yet he's having a good year and things havnt gone bad for him in awhile and in racin they will wait till hes not runnin up front every race and reporters start gettin in his face

and see if hes smiling and nice as he is now when everything is going his way

time will tell

as far as sat night thats racin plain and simple when was

the last time there was a plate race finish either under the green or cars not wreckin

Thing about it is that Smoke would talk to the reporters if he was 1st or 43rd Kyle talks when the situastion best fits him.

You can bet NASCAR loves it it is all I have heard people talk about for the last two days.

I think the back stretch seat were kept open due to the fireworks. They were lighting them off from there and I'm sure they wanted no one close.

so tony said a bunch of [PoorWordUsage] and acted like a wild man

when it didnt go his..took gibbs couple yrs to get him undercontrol

i'm not sticking up for kyle i dont like it when he doesnt talk either but i think unless you are in his shoes that close to winning and then loose it and it wasnt the first time this yr that has happen

it has to cut deep

i really dont think we should critize one guy more than the other they all have different ways of showing emotion

and kyle probably is in the lime light more cuz he's winning and running more up front than most..like him or not he's certainly one of the best

Yes he wins and loves to be interviewed but when he doesn't win, he trys to hide. Maybe thats better as who would want to see him cry on national TV ?

Kyle is still a kid. At least he's learned to hide rather than say something stupid when he's still upset. I'm sure they've told him to hide. As he matures he'll do a better job with the media and be able to give the same B S "I had a good car today" response that they all do. He just needs to grow up a little. He'll also realize that the sooner he grows up the more fan support he'll get. At least if he's upset it shows that he cares. If nothing else you have to respect the desire to win that he has. Not that you have to respect everything else he does. All this being said the crash on the 4th was still all his fault.

I do not question his desire to win and I highly doubt that his team tells him to hide.

    • Tomorrow we will be back at it
    • I am giving it a last hurrah tomorrow. Sorry I haven't been able to check in here much. I have hardly been able to get out this year between work, a baby at home, and a recent trip out of the country for a relative's wedding.    Last time I was out I had a real nice Tom within 20 yards after a very long standoff. I think I screwed it up by rushing myself a bit. He stood around 50 yards out literally strutting back and forth like someone had drawn a line in the mud that he wouldnt cross. He must not have wanted to fight with the strutter decoy we had out. He did that for 45 minutes to an hour and finally came our way after a hen led him towards us.    They came past us but were outside the decoys and angling slightly away from us. Then the tom turned and started angling straight at the strutter decoy. That meant he was basically quartering to me and when he was 15-17 yards or so out I drew because in the back of my mind i was thinking if he kept moving that way and past the decoy he would quickly be in a spot I would have had no shot.   In hindsight I think he had realized (once he got close enough) that he would have been able to whoop up on the decoy and he was coming in to do just that. I probably should have waited to see, but I didn't and right as I hit the backwall of my draw his head popped up on alert and he turned around and walked straight away knowing something wasn't quite right. I could have easily shot at him at 20 yards but he was facing away and I just didn't feel comfortable. I am confident I would have hit my mark but I didn't like shooting at something walking straight away when I am not experienced with bow hunting turkeys.   I know some people will say that I should have shot, but I have been bow hunting for awhile and never wounded anything because of a poor shot or poor shot selection, so I didn't want that to be a first. Hopefully I get a shot at redemption tomorrow!
    • Way to go team!! I sure took the avg score down with my jake
    • nice story, fishing has a way of easing the pains we have. even when we hurt like crazy when done for the day we are looking forward to the next outing.
    • way to go, guys yep, the toms not about to give up even though its close to closing time have seen several strutters the past couple weeks and heard gobbles yesterday while fishing
    • great job. makes it 5 for 5 for team 5 congrats on a nice tom, 57 and that willl give our team score a boost
    • One More Cast      Photo by:  Roger Abraham   If any of you out there are regular readers of my tales, you have followed my recent struggles with back and knees.  I can’t put a name to this drive I have to be on the stream as of late.  It borders on obsession. I guess in my mind if I am healthy enough to fish the world is right with me and I am not getting old and feeble.      Today I was a witness to that I am not the only one.  Lots of anglers and hunters live to go out into the outdoors. .  It is what drives them.  It makes them feel alive.  It is their passion.  I told my fishing buddy Abe today my thoughts.  I told him how I was feeling a little old.  I guess my 60th birthday coming up next month makes me feel mortal.  Abe laughed and said I was a young buck compared to him.  Abe turns 76 this year.     Abe told me tales about catching big trout in tiny streams in Wisconsin and out west.  The twinkle in his eye when he reminisced I had seen before in many trout anglers.      We fished a stretch for 2 hours.  I sat down and rested often.  Abe kept on fishing. He got hung up in a box elder branch and lost a lure.  Abe told me box elders trees were his nemesis when he fished.   He asked me which tree was my kryptonite.  I told him, "ones with branches."  We both had a chuckle and continued fishing.   I thought to myself this guy is really driven.  I hope I am like him at 76.     We got to the vehicle and Abe wanted to continue fishing.  Abe’s waders sprang a leak earlier and he fell in the water a couple times.  He was quite wet.  He wanted to change in to dry clothes before we continue.  Abe peeled off his wet shirt and there were two things stuck to his chest.  He could tell by my questioning look he needed to tell me what was up.     Abe told me he had been having heart problems lately and he was supposed to be wearing a heart monitor.  He left it in the car because he was afraid of getting the electronics wet.  Here I have been whining about being old and the guy I was fishing with left his heart monitor in his vehicle.      Abe reassured me that he was in no danger and he could continue fishing.  I started brainstorming on a place to fish where it was not so hard walking.  Now that I knew he was not as healthy as he looked I wanted an easy place to fish.  I knew the place and it was upstream 5 miles.     We arrived at the well manicured field.  It looked like a golf green.  I picked the area because the farmer kept sheep and goats on the land and the weeds and brush were gone because of the goats.  We walked and fished.     Abe told tales of the old days and of fish lost and landed.  I walked a little forward to fish and looked back to check up on Abe.  What I saw when I looked back scared me and I immediately asked Abe if he was ok.  Abe was laying flat on the ground face down.  I thought the worst and he could tell by my face.  He told me to calm down.  His back was acting up and he needed to straight it out and that was the best way to do it.   We fished a little bit more and he took a photo of me.  He liked the lighting. He told me it captured the essence of trout fishing.  He did not have a camera.  I let him use mine.  He was not camera savvy and needed an impromptu lesson on how to use it.   We drove to his car and we talked about our love of the outdoors. We shook hands and headed our separate ways and promised to fish again soon.  As I drove home I smiled and thought about how I am going to be when I am 76.  I hope I am like Abe and my eyes still twinkle when I talk of chasing trout and I am still driven to make one more cast.
    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full.
