Like,him or not. The Rat wins another. This team has something figured out and if he can keep his head on straight, he could be a contender.

Maybe we need to dump the KOTC cars and go back to the real racing.

Oh ya, thats right, we need to make it a equal playing field for all.

I have racing on my mind too much after today. Too much info crammed into the skull.

I thought it was funny that before the race and again about halfway through the talking heads tried to pump up the action by saying that pretty soon there will be no more give and take, or, it's time to go now and there won't be anybody pulling over for anybody else.

Nothing happened.

Then about every 50 laps or so after that they kept repeating that the action was about to heat up.

Nothing happened.

Then the race was over. Everybody collected their fat checks, went home, and will be ready to do it again next week in a different town. Sounds a lot like the WWE to me. A traveling roadshow.

I agree. I was very much looking forward to a good 'ol Bristol race after the last couple of snoozers, and I don't think I could have come away from it any more disappointed. What an udderly boring race. If this is how a race is going to go at one of NASCAR's best tracks this year, what does the rest of the season have in store?

Anyhow....Not a fan of Shrub at all, actually have a real dislike for the puke, BUT, what he has done over the course of last season and so far into this season is very impressive. That's a lot of wins in a very short amount of time.

I think Kyle's temper shows that hes a racer and thats all he cares about. Its good to have that fire. If you finish poorly, YOU should be mad and upset. Different people handle it differently. When Jeff Gordon and Mark Martin are all smiles and giggles after they finish bad, it just makes me think that they are more worried about putting on a good face for their sponsors and their "Brand" than dominating the race track.

Kyle's not worried about "Kyle Busch The BRAND" or how his other ventures are performing. He just drives without worrying about his image. And man, hes been driving well this year.

ya i agree

he young and kinda shows his inmaturity

but sat was a tuff when you have it won and lose by something out of your control but that part of racin those guys also put the car under you

but no doubt he the best out there.. i think

i wasnt a 3 car fan but he was the best in his time

i like watching him i'm not slammin him at all

and i think what you said bout gordon and martin is alittle off thats maturity understanding you cant when every race

if any body should be throwing tempter fits its martin jeeper he had fast cars all yr but look where he is barring any more real bad luck

i say he makes the chase no probalem he2 only 150 some out

Do we have to go through this again? Toyota is a company based in Japan, period. GM, Ford, and Dodge are not. Where their cars are made makes no difference. All the Toyota money gets funneled back overseas eventually so that isn't an American automaker in my eyes along with many others who don't believe they should be allowed in NASCAR which IS based in the USA. If NASCAR had any standards they would have left it the way it was instead of looking for the next quick buck, but now they're seeing the results of lowering their standards with lower fan attendance and dwindling support.

Joe Gibbs racing is an american company based in the USA that employs Americans. Toyotas money to get Joe Gibbs on board is not going back to Japan. Plus the advertising dollars spent in NASCAR by Toyota are not goign back to Japan. You have your opinion and I respect that. I like NASCAR how it is now. I believe the biggest factor in the drop in attendance is the current state of the economy. Its expensive to go a race, much more so than a baseball game.

I like nascar to BUT as everything else money has takenover

was a little disappointted in the race sun not real exciting

but not sure thats nascar fault i dont think they designed the

new progessive banking and if they did i think they did it

thinkin it would be better racin

I dont think toyata has anything to do with the racin

they have a driver that comes along once on 20 yrs or so

i think kyle woulda been doing the same if he had stayed in the 5

funny you bought up the toyota deal as i was driving home today

a honda passed me kinda racie lookin car i couldnt help but wonder how long before they get into it

I get mad at nascar to but for them its kinda like being pres you cant pleeeeeza all the people all the time

Gibbs is a traitor, leaving Chevrolet for a Japanese car maker. He should be ashamed.

    • 44 IN THE BOAT HERE ON HIDDEN BAY. One thing you always can count on here at Lake Iwanttobethere is that after a lousy day there will be a nice day. Warmer, party cloudy skies and it is warm where I sit at my desk here in the den. The brown dog is at my feet, his paws on my right foot keeping tabs on me. Yesterday was a rain day and normally I look forward to rain days as they give me time to catch up on indoor projects. Rain days in the dead of winter however do nothing more then create work. Ground is frozen so all we have is runoff which here in the cabin means a wet floor in the basement. Overnight the water freezes and now we quickly go through the ice melt trying to get rid of the ice so it is safe to walk on the sidewalks.   Ranger Rick is reporting that his trail system at Samantha Lake is a mess. The rain and warm weather has eaten away at his trails. The short cut across Samantha Lake is not recommend to use as their is water on the ice and getting on and off the lake is unsafe at best. No fishermen on the lake yesterday but then again it rained more then a half an inch. Big hockey game on tonight the Wild against the Black Hawks. We will see if putting the seventy inch TV in will draw a beer drinking crowd. I would love to be there but have been under the weather the past few days and will be watching from home.   I have gotten a few e-mail’s asking about Lake Iwanttobethere and it is a good time to be a little more clear about the Lake. The wife has never had her named mentioned in the eleven years I have been writing about the lake. She told me she did not want anyone to know her name so she is always refereed to as "The Wife" of my four kids only the boys names have been used as they own business in town, the daughters have never had their names mentioned except the one who paints is sometimes spoken about as at Christmas she paints store front windows. None of the eight grand kids names have been mentioned but they are often refereed to a granddaughter number two or grandson number three. The two ten year olds are spoken about often and are refereed to as "The Tenners"   Almost every one in town is based on someone I know. A few of them have passed on but I still write about them, kind of my tribute to them. I could still be writing about my old dogs Bud and Barney as they left me with a ton of stories untold but I shared my loss with you over them and have moved on. Now I leave it up to you how much the Lodge and Resort are. One of you called the Resort a bar and it is far more then that. The Lodge is a place for members to hang their hats. There are lockers in the basement for their stuff and a chair in the Main Room to sit and be left alone. Not everyone drinks, for example everyday Tom sits at the end of the bar with a cup of coffee every morning and does his crossword puzzle. I never mention him much because that is just what he does. The FELLOWS on the other hand seem to be doing something all the time that you may find interesting. The Resort is a place for the guys to get away from the Lodge if that makes any sense.   The Resort has become like our Lake Iwanttobethere old guys home. Marv, Elmer, DOC and Vic are the core and none of them are married and they are doing just fine thank you. Chuck, Hammering Hank, Skinny and I are the next wave, the in betweeners so to speak. Married but still looking for a hideaway. Where is Lake Iwanttobethere? I’ll save that for another day.
    • Season has been over for awhile but now I have a couple of Grouse who just strut in my back yard taunting me. Duncan has tried to put the fear into them but no matter how quick he is they are up in the trees before he can get halfway across the yard. He does come back with that stupid lab look on his face so I guess everyone is enjoying themselves here late in the winter. I hope to hear them drumming this spring.
    • cool!!  and thanks again for the info!!  i look forward to getting it.
    •  Used to, then he lost it to Vince and Nick Cage in a Segway race on Tropicana.
    • Your going to like it. Definitely not "the best", but still definitely worth the money. Mine came slight damaged... one of the flanges where the leg attaches to the barrel was bent slightly. It was easily fixed but I decided to contact RK about it... They said to send them pictures, and within 2 days I had a phone call offering either a full exchange or $100 credit to my card. I gladly took the credit. I fired it up around Xmas time in 15-20 degree weather. I was worried how it would do in the cold. It handled it like a champ and only took about 15 min longer to smoke an entire pork loin.
