From Bud Pole to "Light" Pole

With Johnson on the pole there's actually a chance he might not be in Victory Lane for the final race of '07. It's not too often that a pole sitter wins. I've accepted his chances of this years Championship is all but owned, but I truly hope that we have a feel good race tomorrow with an unlikely or deservedly so winner. Like that of Ryan Newman or Mark Martin or even David Ragan for pete's sake. If Johnson wins again, 5 in a row, I will blow a gasket. Will we have to see that TV commercial after this year with he and Knaus doing up that blue Camaro? The Camaro I swear I've seen in other TV ad's, where Johnson says, with his pompous ass attitude, "We could always do my wife's car" yeah OK Jimmy...since Chad's probably doing your wife anyway he might as well do her car too.

I've been paying closer attention to Jeff Gordon lately. Earlier this week he was interviewed on NASCAR Now and I saw a different Jeff Gordon. He has changed a lot this year. It's probably happiness coupled with fatherhood and maturity. It used to be I could not tolerate him and his nasal drawl, but somewhere in my heart I've found some new respect for him and I don't believe it's just me.

Mike Skinner proved that anything can happen in a close Championship race. Kudos to Ron Hornaday and too bad for Mike for losing a rear wheel. Perhaps Johnson will lose an axle tomorrow!!

Today will bring the final Busch race not only of '07 but forever. Please Lord, let there be a winner other than Shrub, Carl, Happy or Hamlin. And maybe Steve "Blinky" Wallace can keep the fenders on it. Amen.

I too have a new-found respect for Jeff. I guess the transformation really became noticeable after Ella Sophia was born, but it really was happening before that. And the fact that he will be Junior's teammate next year helps.
Loved your comments on JJ. I will never understand him. He and Chad are just geeks with tunnel vision ~ all they focus on constantly is racing and they don't have fun.

I'm with you on the Gordon thing...my attitude changed when he flew the 3 flag at Phoenix...anything but a 48 win today is good for me the championship I have lost interest in....
