Texas Style



Hats off to Jeff Burton for breaking the Hendrick streak. Gr8 job on the wheel getting past Matty on the final lap. It feels good seeing Jeff win for RCR and the only driver to get two wins at the Big "T". Some credit has to out to Smoke or maybe it should go to Monty for sliding into to Smoke which caused a chain of events that changed everything. It's unfortunate that Jr.'s car became a casualty due to Shrub being blinded by "Smoke" but Jr. made up some ground for the #5 team {and the crowd goes wild} by taking over the Kelloggs mobile because Shrub was last seen walking off the track, probably to go have a few Budwiesers to calm his nerves. Smoke says he'll get blamed for this because the fans were booing him and I do think it was his anger at Monty that caused him to spin after trying to take over Big brother Busch on the low side...but that is true Smoke style and why we love him. Shrub did not even slow down!! A case of over zealousness. And what was that debris on the track on lap 293? Where did it come from and funny how it showed up right after Big brother Busch's pit stop putting him a lap down and giving Ironboy the lead again. Mark Martin did an awesome job with a 3rd place finish and it was nice seeing The Biff get a top ten along with two other Rosox Fords. It seems that the rookie Monty favors the fast tracks...lets see what Dega holds for him in the drafting patterns...I have a feeling he won't have many friends.

Other news... Jr. was spotted talking to Tony the Tiger

Hey RaceFan57! Long time no type atcha - Dixie's been all tied up!! Cannot wait to hear what all Smoke has to say on his Sirius radio show tomorrow night - boy, I thought he went off last week - this week should be real special! He said sh*t at least 5 times last week... he also was saying how much he liked Montoya a couple weeks back. Hmmmm....

Man, every post-race interview we saw or heard of Smoke's last night just got more & more pensive, until the final one we saw on Wind Tunnel, where he pretty much said he wanted to quit.

I can't recall his name, but DeSpain's guest was one of Smoke's PR guys - he had some interesting things to say about that deal. Meanwhile, Hay-Pee's first attempt at dirt track racing at Eldora might prove to be not as much fun as Kevin Harvick promised him it would be. ;)

The way he is going, by the time the chase rolls around he won't have any friends left.

I hated to hear Smoke say "it isn't fun anymore." I wish I could afford Serius, because I would like to hear his show. I'm prepared to see Stewart retire after the 2009 season, but if he quits earlier than that because it isn't fun anymore, I might have a hard time picking a new favorite driver.
I hope that it was just emotion of the moment, mingled with disappointment, and he'll rethink his words after he sleeps on it.
