    How the heck do you not even get into Turn 1 before crashing? Wow.

    That was a good race, loved seeing Jeff take it. Jimmie was a bit crazy today, terrified me. :p

    I knew Kenseth was going to be good today but he passed even my high expectations. Johnson finishing behind him was unexpected but getting stuck in the upper groove would do it. Yeah he wasn't happy today was he? Happy Jeff won.
    And can't forget Darrell Wallace Jr winning in the Trucks. 1st African American to win since Wendell Scott!

    I think Gordon would've got by Kenseth regardless, but that Kasey Kahne block in the closing laps was just nonsense.

    Yeah, I know Kasey's car was pretty torn up but I don't think he needed to check up like that.

    Also... OMG HEY MAK.

    MY BOY

    Race was boring as hell, but I can't really complain about the outcome, can I? :p

    That was one of the most dominant performances I've seen in a long time (well, I actually listened to it).

    There were quite a few that came close to him; Edwards, Busch, Keselowski... Honestly I think Gordon would have given him a run if not for the blown tire. He was fast and set up for the long run, which is what it ended up being.

    Ugh. Texas is Jeff's worst track bar none. :mad:[face_beatup]
    Congrats JJ but wanted Jeff to pull it off this year.

    Just came across the news that Trevor Bayne has been diagnosed with MS, but has been cleared to continue racing. He's a tough kid and very open about his faith, wish him the best.

    Man his health has been crazy ever since he won the Daytona 500.

    I assume he's still going to be full-time Nationwide for 2014. I wonder how long before he isn't able to drive, obviously it's going to affect his career into Cup.

    Actually more people with MS these days, including those diagnosed at younger ages, can lead perfectly normal lives for the most part. Especially with today's medical advances. Case in point: Montell Williams who was diagnosed nearly 15 years ago, and still looks and acts by and large like the picture of health.

    Yeah the more I've been reading about Trevor here I realized I was way off. Seems that it was discovered when he was going through his troubles last year but has yet to see any symptoms directly related to MS.

    His sister has it as well, I believe. Also young.

    He's a legend, one of my favorite drivers on any circuit. Hate that he went out this way, he deserved to go out on his own terms. Enjoy a long and relaxing retirement.

    Tough to hear that about Franchitti. Always liked him. This year has been rough for racing.

    Michael Annett driving the 7 for Tommy Baldwin full time for Rookie of the Year in '14. Bringing his current sponsor, Pilot J, with him. That's awesome news for TBR, but I wonder what Blaney's going to do?

    I think Burton, Blaney, and Labonte are destined for Fox Sports 1, NBC, or ESPN to call Cup or Nationwide, maybe even trucks. All good drivers, but still young enough to enjoy a good second career, and with the sport becoming as top-heavy as ever, they'll never get a shot again to drive for a competitive team.

    LOL Donovan McNabb

    Even if he thinks you don't need to be an athlete to drive one of these cars, you can't say Jimmie isn't an athlete. The dude does triathlons non stop.
