#48 win it chase again?

Recommended Posts

It would be good to see Burton win the cup. He is a clean driver and has put his time in.

I would love it if Burton won the chase. He has been my favorite for awhile. It would be nice to see a driver from a smaller team win it, I think.

The 48 team is on a roll.

Pretty much the samething they did last year.

Yes Jimmy is on a roll and will be hard to overcome in points, it is amazing how one team can come to life at the end of season (everything going in their favore) and another another team (shrub)can totally self destruct in every aspect of the race. The Biff has taken over 2nd but Burton is only 3 points in 3rd. I am more of a driver fan than a manufacture or team fan and wouldn't mind seeing the Biff or Burton win the chase.

I would be all for Jeff B winning but I just don't know if any team or driver can beat the 48 team. They work so well together and when it comes down to crunch time, they are the team to beat.

Kyle's year will end up with a lot of wins and good races and will go down as one of the biggest chokes ever.

Has anyone calculated the points using the old method? Just curious how things would have been for Shrub.

I'm pulling for Burton to win. He's been close a few times but hasn't pulled off...yet.

The REAL points are posted at Jayski and at NASCAR.com

As of right now, Jimmie is in first by 113 points over Edwards and Busch is 183 behind in 3rd place.

I think he showed today why he's won it the last couple of years. What a way to finish after the pit road speeding penalty putting them a lap down.

I would also say it is a done deal.

Show's what kind of team you have to go from a lap down to finish 2nd. Reminds me of the 24 team back in thier days.

I am hoping for a DNF for the 48 to tighten up the field. Even if Jimmie only has average finishes in the last three races he will still smoke the field. Tonight on Nascar Now they said that if he finishes last in a race he will still be ahead of the field by about 10 points. I would like it to come down to 3 teams fighting it out at homestead.

    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
    • Very quiet so far.  Maybe one distant gobble on the roost but couldn't tell for sure. At least the mosquitos seem to have calmed down in the last 10 minutes some.
