Bud Shootout

Recommended Posts

A Toyota on the pole for the Shootout. I predict a crash in turn #1 when the rest of the field scatters to get around the slower car.

Alright, I'm not one to divulge into conspiracy theories, but what are the chances that NASCAR will let something slide by, say during inspections, so that Toyota can have at least one car in the race??? I mean, think about it! All the millions upon millions upon millions of dollars poured in by Toyota only to NOT make the Daytona 500??? I don't think Toyota or NASCAR can afford that to happen.

As for Toyota winning the Daytona 500....I doubt it. Only if NASCAR allows them to get away with something that gives them an advantage over the other teams. As long as it's an even playing field, I think there are too many other good drivers and crews and cars out there for a Toyota to win.

Toyota is guaranteed at least two drivers in the race due to provisionals/owner's points or something. Jarrett and I think Blaney are locked in for sure.

There will for sure be a Toyota in the Daytona 500. Jarret can use his Past Champion's provisional so there is no way there won't be at least one.

Actually there is no way there won't be at least two....as I said right above your post. Two are already locked in.

Does anyone know if this makes Jarrett the first driver to run 3 different manufacturers in a career? Maybe someone did it with the Dodges.

No, not even close. Back a few years (while, Ok quite a few I guess) you have to remember there were Oldsmobiles, Buicks, Pontiacs, Dodges, Plymoouths, Chryslers, Mercurys, Fords, etc. I bet Richard Petty drove far more than three different kinds of cars. I know Darrel Waltrip drove Buicks, Chevy's and Fords at least.

I had to chance to catch the shoot out.

It seemed pretty lack luster.

Nice to see the cars back on the track.

It looked like the 11 got hit really hard.

I bet Everham is a little miffed,

Evernham should be mad at the almighty Jr. since he wrecked all those cars on the last lap... Really smart driving like that for 8th place. Let's hear the "Jr. is omniscient and omnipotent" crew explain how that wasn't his fault now...

And what does Stewart think Daytona is Bristol or what? Last year he's punting Kenseth now this year he bump and runs Busch for the win. 190 MPH restrictor plate bump and runs??? I don't like Kyle at all, but that's just reckless.

Without a doubt lack luster at best. Stewart looked strong along with David Gilliland. Jr had some handling issues but did look pretty good in the first 20. Looked to me like he bump drafted a little to hard at the end.

Toyota looked to not be there yet and Johnson was not that good without Gordon for help. Jeff also had issues.

I am sure the 500 and the 125's will be better when all team mates are on the track.

My new saying is go Gordon. smile.gif If my luck continues from last year, I may be able to jinx his ride again. smile.gif

Nice to see Smoke starting out strong cool.gif Watched the race but couldn'nt hear anything, have to watch track side tomorrow to see what the 8 has to say!! Looks like the Toyotas have some work to do!! Qualifing should be intresting sunday, practice today looked like alot of guys are sand bagging.

Lawdog "rubin is racin" I don't think that was anything to get excited about!! Its a shoot out, no prize for 2nd place. If know ones there to push you have to do something. I'd bet Kyle or any other driver would do the same.

    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
    • I assume you burned your deck down immediately after taking these photos.
    • Never been a big fan of webspinners, but those orb weavers are cool to look at and harmless. And this is the time of year that you seem to see them.   More of a fan of Wolf and Jumping spiders myself.  
    • Cool!  Did you take a picture when you smashed it? That big som-abatch could use a 22 through it! 😘
    • Maybe that is the way they are going to move it all on-line?  
    • Found a giant lichen orbweaver with prey and a Nordmann's orbweaver hanging around our deck.
    • I guess it depends what you are looking for. I just picked up 2 pairs of jeans for close to 50% off but this was also online and not a store.
