Live Blogging The Nationwide Series Race From Nashville on ESPN2


Add your Kyle Busch guitar smash comments by clicking the comments button below.

What a weekend this has been for ESPN where NASCAR is concerned. Practice coverage on Friday consisted of lots of talking and very little content. Saturday's qualifying was the victim of a live college baseball game running long, so lots of the cars were dropped from the coverage so ESPN2 could hit live golf on time at 5PM.

Now, the NASCAR on ESPN team has to re-group and get things back together for a live race from Nashville. This is one of those unique concrete tracks that is very different from the traditional NASCAR surfaces that this series sees regularly.

Allen Bestwick will lead Rusty Wallace and Brad Daugherty on the air at 7PM with the pre-race show from the Infield Pit Studio. Tim Brewer will also be on-hand from the Tech Garage.

Once the pre-race is over, Wallace will be going up to the booth and joining Dr. Jerry Punch and Andy Petree to call the race. Dale Jarrett has the weekend off. Down on pit road will be Dave Burns, Shannon Spake and Jamie Little.

Both Carl Edwards and Kyle Busch are down from Pocono for this race. Look for the normal struggles of the Nationwide regulars to keep up with the big boys. A consistent story on these stand-alone weekends will be how many teams start the race and then pull directly into the garage before the first pit stop for fuel.

Although the fuel is free, the tires are not. Teams at the back of the pack who have no intention of actually racing are going to save every dollar possible. TDP will be keeping track of the start and park teams in our live blog.

The track is easy to cover for TV, makes great pictures with the light surface and offers good racing. This part of the coverage should be fun to watch.

This post will serve to host your comments about the Nationwide Series on ESPN2 from Nashville. To add your TV-related opinion, just click on the comments button below. This is a family-friendly website, please keep that in mind when posting.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by The Daly Planet.

Hi all! Here's hoping that this is a far superior effort on ESPN's part than their other NASCAR broadcasts have been this weekend.

David said...

Great quote by McDowell

Daly Planet Editor said...

"Hard to start behind Kyle Busch because sometimes his cape blocks your view," said Michael McDowell.

Got to love the Nationwide drivers....

beat ya to it JD

Gymmie said...

*giggle* re: Michael McDowell

David said...

I knew it. Kyle went in there high and Joey was too close to take advantage...

Frustrating im sure but as much as I think walking way is justified at times, leaving Sliced Bread out there to burn on national tv was rough.

David said...

Rusty...Rusty...Rusty...how many teammates did you get along with?

Jojaye said...

The question of the night is will these guys pull it together & give us good race coverage? or (more likely) espn goes 0-5 & totally jerks this up?

Not only am I a racing addict - I'm an optimist.

OK its fading, Brad is comparing LeBron to racing. sigh its gonna be a long night I fear.

Dot said...

Thanks JD, I missed what M McD said.

I can't believe what SDDD just said. And people wonder why he's so hated.

I just flipped over to CL. Surprisingly they "cut" out the track cleaning after Atwood's oil drop.

PammH said...

@Dot-okay, party next dr..I'm in & out. What did SDDD say NOW??

stricklinfan82 said...

Wow, I hadn't heard those Kyle Busch comments before. He knowingly stayed on the track with a flat tire last week to try to wreck the drivers behind him on the restart and take the victory? Yikes, good to see Rusty take a moment to share his disgust with that.

I also hope my worst fears aren't realized as I look on the TV and see a blank, unsponsored sitting on the outside front row... if you catch my drift.

Daly Planet Editor said...

I respect Brad Daugherty for calling out Kyle Busch for walking away after that last race.

He joins Mike Joy and Ricky Craven who said the same thing.

Dot said...

@ PammH, See Strick's post.

Karen said...

Brad's point about LeBron James was totally on the money comparing him to KB.

Daly Planet Editor said...

One thing is for sure. Allen Bestwick can get things back on track and focused in TV land in a heartbeat.

Makes me crazy that he not calling this race tonight.

stricklinfan82 said...

It sure is a stark contrast to compare pieces like the storm survival story we just saw on ESPN's pre-race show to the cartoons, goofiness, sponsored segments, and lack of reality we got all year on Fox's pre-race race shows huh?

Dot said...

@ Strick, right on.

Andrew said...

*sigh* I'm glad to see I'm not the only one tired of Kyle's arrogance.

Dot said...

@ JD, maybe that's why JP doesn't take time off. AB would outshine him.

nice point..... and Kyle calling out Doc? looks like they are on point tonight........

Andrew said...

@stricklinfan - Amen to that!

Jojaye said...

@JD its almost as if its a different network with AB "in charge"

As far as Kyle - why doesn't/won't/can't NASCAR bring in KB like they did Tony after his remarks & get KB in control & going with the program? He admitted he stayed out knowingly, with no regard for other drivers?

Dot said...

@ Jo, our minds are still in sync. I wonder that too.

Robyn said...

Kyle just suggested what we ALL want. Cover the other guys, not just him. Give coverage to guys that have new sponsors. Maybe ESPN will listen to "superman." On second thought, they probably won't.

Karen said...

KB just proved he has a sense of humor when he wants to. Good interview. Nice plug for McD and Coleman.

David said...

-sigh- Sometimes Kyle shouldn't tell the whole story...

Blank car is P2 strick.

MWR supplied, it'd be nice to see them win just to add to the chaos much like when JB won at M-ville last fall in trucks.

I like Kyle's idea...talk about OTHER guys and leave him alone lol

hotaru-raganbaby_6 said...

You think they'll listen to SDDD, their 'star of the script'? Interesting him of all people said that.

David said...

Heck yeah! State is back on a car with Keller today!

Dot said...

@ hotaru, so true.

I'd love nothing more than to see that kid, or frankly anyone but the Cup drivers, win this race. My fear with that car being unsponsored we'll see a repeat of what happened when Kelly Bires qualified 5th at Bristol in the full-time Braun Racing #10 car that didn't have a sponsor for that one race.... 5 laps, to the garage, "brakes". I sure hope I'm wrong though, it would sure be good to see that kid get a chance to shine in good equipment.

Anonymous said...

What - you didn't know la-hand was a word in the National Anthem?

Robyn said...

@strick - I would hope that if they weren't planning to race MWR wouldn't have set up the car so well. But others have parked from top 10 starting positions.

Lou said...

had to be the longest National Anthem of the season.

Dot said...

The anthem singers must audition a different version to get the job.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Once again I volunteer to be the National Anthem "singer picker" for 2010.

Sophia said...

WOW. been watching Young and the Restless and missed some snarky comment by young Kyle.

How the heck can he get by with that..he wanted to wreck others????//

Anthem, uh, not so good.

I missed the flyover or did the camera, too. At this rate, I might go back to my Y&R marathon.

Daly Planet Editor said...

At least Rusty is just straightforward in talking about his own team.

Karen said...

JD said ...

If not, maybe you can be the 2010 nose picker.

Dot said...

No flyover.

Vicky D said...

Gee lucky for me I had to go get doggy food out of the car then had to walk down to the front of the house to close the driveway gate and missed the anthem. Hubby muted it.

Thats "Hoe-Say"s last name

Robyn said...

@Sophia - SDDD didn't directly say that. He said that he didn't want to let his competitors know that he had a problem. Rusty interpreted it to mean that he was willing to wreck the field for the win. SDDD messed up the race for not only him, but his teammate.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Boy, is sports car racing boring or what? Anyone watching SPEED in PIP?

Andrew said...

No flyover? :(

I'm picking Keselowski or Allgaier to win this race. Brad's been on a hot streak lately and Allgaier certainly has the ability to win. He's been getting better week after week.

But I also have a feeling that ESPN will mostly ignore Allgaier (again) in favor of the Cup regulars, even if he's running up front. Guess we'll see.

Gymmie said...

Dang it! I wasn't watching during the prayer...missed that! That's what I get for bad timing on my multi-tasking!

Are we not in Music City? Suddenly is there NO ONE who can sing there? Geez!

@JD--I vote for you to be the Anthem Singer picker :)

@Matt--if you lost it before/during the "anthem" send them a Thank You Card. The feed I'm watching via Justin is from NY but I believe they have satellite

David said...

Stricklin, another owner paid MWR to field the car from what I gathered in his opening interview so I think they are here to race. If he was a start and park guy, he probably wouldnt have gotten an interview out of it. IE Terry Cook when he qualifies good. Unfortunately for Kelly he has been relegated to driving for S&P's this year.

Also, sometimes the "brake" issues can be quite legit. I think at Darlington Blaney had a true blue brake failure in the car from what someone told me scanning the car. Just so happened they didnt have the resources to go fix it so they parked.

Lets hope this starts better then last year because I think it was this race or Kentucky that we had a wideshot down the back on lap 1 and you saw 8 cars pull in for the pits in the shot...

Daly Planet Editor said...

Get ready for RaceBuddy tomorrow, that is going to be wild.

David said...

Robyn: I honestly think Kyle was thinking what I was. He wasnt trying to CAUSE anything, but was HOPING since it was a GWC restart, that someone much like at Phoenix, would lose their head on the restart and cause a melee. But such did not happen.

Look at how much higher he entered turn 1 on the replay though then he normally did, if Joey had been a carlength further back, he would have went low and cleared him. Kyle messed up by not telling at LEAST his teammate what his intentions were.

David said...

Least we'll get to see triple pits tonight thank goodness

stricklinfan82 said...

Wow, with the ESPN qualifying debacle that edited out most of the go-or-go-homers' runs I didn't notice until the starting lineup crawl that Kelly Bires was in the 91 car this week. Sad, very sad, when you see how well he ran when he got a chance to drive that 33 car earlier this year.

Dot said...

Going to fix dinner. Read/write later.

Gymmie said...

@JD--New2 isn't home so his feed is still on SPEED so I'm checking that one too. Yes it can be boring at times but from time to time they give us a great finish! I remember Scott Pruett winning at Daytona using some of his NA$CAR tricks on the last lap :)

Robyn said...

@David - Those weren't my comments about wrecking the field, they were Rusty's.

As for Blaney's brake "problem" at Darlington, it was strictly S&P. Prism won't run the car without sponsorship. Look for more brake problems for Blaney tomorrow.

David said...

Good to see a sponsor on the 87

Daly Planet Editor said...

dot...food before racing?

Daly Planet Editor said...

Are they not watching the same race we are? Show the racing, not the leaders@@

David said...

MSRP almost had another Talladega there...

Gymmie said...

That's a shame :( Didn't get started good :(

Vicky D said...

Looks like a great crowd for a nice night of racing. Wish we could have gone up there for this and I said that last night about the truck race. Hope JP can stay alert.

Martin Vincent said...

By the looks of it on Live Leaderboard, the 49, 96, 90, 91 and 0 cars all dropped to the rear of the field before the green flag waved.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Martin, keep giving us the S&P info when they drop out will you?

Thanks!

David said...

bummer for willie. not many chances to showcase after thorsport released him

Vicky D said...

It looks like Mark Green is already out.

Anonymous said...

There is no crowd. 1/2 full at best.

Martin Vincent said...

David said...

Good thing this car is sponsored by "the other" male enhancement sponsor or we'd be watching the Smilin' Bob commercials.

David said...

lol its a sponsor martin...

i didnt know who they were 'till you said that

Dot said...

Waiting for George to warm up. Dan is my personal booth announcer while I'm in the kitchen. Even replays what I missed.

Wow, what a crash.

Andrew said...

@Anon 7:54 - I was thinking that too. Bruton Smith won't move a race here if this trend continues.

Martin Vincent said...

#0 - Lap 2
#85 and #05 - Lap 5

#09 and #07 may or may not repair and come back

#49, #90, #91 and #96 are still out there

Vicky D said...

I thought the stands were full maybe it was the tv angle they showed us.

90 and 91 are in the garage. Looked like one of them was heading there when JWT spun.

Martin Vincent said...

#90 and #91 did not take the green on that restart

#96 was the Lucky Dog and may run longer than we expected

#49 still out as well

Anonymous said...

sorry vickyd the stands are not full....

Glenn said...

Yep JD. I'm still watching the Rolex race.
I've found that it is a full time "job" watching the Grand Am series. They update different "stories" all the time so you have to keep up. They don't stay on one or two drivers to long unless they're beating and banging each other. They find racing elsewhere on the track and show it. It does get strung out on the endurance races, but they cover the whole field so you have to pay attention, (if you're interested).
Compared to the cup races the Rolex series has more "racing" than them. Each driver works to WIN. Do what it takes to WIN. Even with a 6 second lead, no letting off, drive hard till it's done.
I guess it can be an aquired taste though.

Vicky D said...

Anon at 8:06 - at least the race fans can stretch out now!

Robyn said...

Did ESPN just show the "points as they are running"? It's lap 22. Jeez!

Jojaye said...

Does the booth not notice NW only drivers? S. Leight is in 5th -hello? How about all the other NW drivers? Not just Cup?

Robyn said...

96 is off the track.

Martin Vincent said...

#07 and #09 are officially out per ESPN's ticker

#05 is just "off" and may come back out, although he was severely crabbing his way back to the garage

Looks like #96 is out now

Daly Planet Editor said...

Glen, it looked a lot like F-1 today. Only passing has been on pit road.

Snafam said...

Annett just brought out a caution! (MRN is great!)

Daly Planet Editor said...

MV, how many started and parked without being in the accident?

Andrew said...

ESPN comes back to a caution much faster than FOX does.

Richard in N.C. said...

Eli Gold is doing the lead for MRN.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Gotta love Eli, he is a character.

Martin Vincent said...

0, 90, 91 and 96 were not involved in the accident

05, 07, 09 and 85 were all involved at lap 3

#49 is the only suspected S&P still out there

Jojaye said...

MRN is on, bspn very low, I had such hope for tonight.

Robyn said...

There goes the 49.

darbar said...

I had wondered what happened to Brad Coleman. Now I see he's in the 20 car. Interesting

Robyn said...

No word that Annett brought his car back to the garage. Is he out?

darbar said...

Gotta run the race on my Slingbox so I can watch my beloved Penguins on the flat screen. Go Pens

Daly Planet Editor said...

Lots of scams getting ad time these days from Fidelis to Extenze. Sign of the times just like S&P cars.

darbar said...

How in heaven's name do they have those Extenze commercials on here, and wouldn't a Nascar driver be a bit embarrassed to endorse it? I know sponsorship is at a premium, but that product? And didn't the government stop the sale of that stuff, saying it's false advertising?

Sophia said...

Extenze driver commercials.

Yikes!!!!!!!!!!!

So I no lika.

Geez. I miss high standards.

and no it ain't 'medical problems' anymore. Even V is a "recreational" drug among the seasoned citizens set! Yes some need it but others want it.

So to speak!?

Vicky D said...

Annett shows 13 laps down, but the sad news is that Kelly Bires was in one of the S&P cars.

Jojaye said...

@Robyn - they are still working on the car in the garage per MRN

hotaru-raganbaby_6 said...

Extenze would be embarrassing to promote.

Their infomercials are horrible, btw.

PammH said...

I know I'm abit late, but when is p#ssed not a swear word on TV?? My mamma would have washed my mouth out w/soap for that!!

Robyn said...

Thanks Jojaye. Just wondering what was going on. I saw that he was laps down.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Like to hear some more team radios.

Lou said...

AB says 9 cars out. WHY are they out?

Martin Vincent said...

#05 is officially out, #15 is undergoing repairs and the S&P business is done for the night.

Kevin Conway's driver suit calls ExtenZe a "men's health supplement".

darbar said...

Personally, I think they should limit Cup drivers to a certain number of Nationwide races each season, and not allow their points to count towards the Championship. And it really hacks me off when they say Shrub has 50 wins and only needs 150 more to catch Richard Petty. Petty's wins came in Cup not in the baby races. Like someone said, it would be like Shaq going back to high school or college now, just to pad his win numbers.

Jojaye said...

*th place is best battle Leight v Wallace yet we don't see it? & McDowell in it to

3 wide came out of turn 4 - we didn't see that either

Andrew said...

@Joyjaye - Wonder if the ESPN announcers are trying to tell the booth what they want shown instead of what is being shown?

Vicky D said...

I can't believe Kevin Conway would agree to even do those commercials.

Tracy said...

Hey al. I'm late to the race, but 9 cars are out already???

Kevin most likely has no choice - his contract probably requires him to be in his sponsor's commercials.

Anonymous said...

I read an article on the extenz a while back, what a scam. It cost them 3 cents a pill and they sell for $2.00 each. They were being investigated for credit card fraud. If you subscribe they send you a months supply every month. If you cancel they continue to send you the pills for several months and charge your card. They think most men would not admit to being duped and just let it pass. They made 80 million dollars in six months before they were shut down for while.

Martin Vincent said...

Looks like #15 came back on track, went back to the garage and is back out again.

Jojaye said...

@darbar - bit late here but I agree with you.
Hubby has switched to pre game on another channel - he said he'll watch again when SDDD isn't leading.

@Andrew - I have the sound on so low I'm not able to get angry by the lousy "coverage" I listen to MRN & try to see the race on bspn.

darbar said...

FYI, they did 9 laps of green flag racing and went to commercial for 5 green flag laps.

Anonymous said...

The race is broadcast on ESPN2, yet there's no race tracker on espn.com? Has it been this way all season?

There is such a good joke within your comment but this is a family friendly site.

I am looking forward to 9pm and the Indy race myself.

darbar said...

Cool shot of all the brake dust coming off Wallace's car when they pulled off his tire.

Tracy said...

@Sophia - my lack of ability with English idioms is showing once more. If it's rude, please, JD, remove!

Martin Vincent said...

Probably worth mentioning that GNC is on the car as an associate sponsor, they may be partly funding this ride and selling it in their stores.

Going by what you guys have said, I think I'm glad I can't see those ExtenZe commercials on TSN.

@JD - 4 cars were out in that accident on lap 4, but I think it's a safe bet the #05 and #85 would have been S&P anyway. #09 is a wreck waiting to happen, so it's more like a "start & crash".

Mike Harmon would have given it a legitimate shot, he finished well at the last race, is using the owner points from SK Motorsports but using his own car and they had just signed Championship Bull Riding as a sponsor at the last minute.

Dot said...

I'm back.

Re: Conway. I guess if you want to race, you'll sell your soul and other body parts to the devil.

oops, MS is 7th

Sophia said...

Tracy

You were the perfect lady within your post. It was my unsavory alleged mind that was a bad girl.

Kenny Wallace is second? wow. I just asked Mikey on Twitter if Kenny had to change his cell phone number after MW displayed it to America.

Martin Vincent said...

#15 has come back on track a few times, but is out again. Is it possible he can't maintain minimum speed?

Daly Planet Editor said...

No tracker on ESPN.com, check the earlier comments for the FOX tracker.

Karen said...

Someone please remind me who DNQ earlier today. I thought Morgan was one of them.

Dot said...

@ Anon 8:33, no leaderboard. With SDDD out front (earlier) that's all you need to know. No other drivers matter.

Martin Vincent said...

#18, #60, #88, #20 and #1 are likely to be at the front when everyone has pitted.

darbar said...

Wow, that was a lot of laps shown. Fourteen green flag laps before going to commercial, and only 7 missed laps due to commercial

Martin Vincent said...

DNQs were Rick Ware Racing's #31 (Canada's Daryl Harr) and #41 (Justin Hobgood).

Martin Vincent said...

Scott Wimmer is off the track, anybody know why?

Kevin Lepage is off, maybe out soon.

Jojaye said...

Scott Wimmers car is on fire in garage

#15 can't maintain control & speed they are still working on it

Tracy said...

Did anyone else get the new Vanity Fair today? There's an interview with Eliot Spitzer, and his prize piece of "sculpture" in his office is a piece of Jeff Gordon's wrecked car from Michigan, because it reminds him that you can survive anything. Hmmm, wonder what JG thinks of being a source of inspiration for Eliot Spitzer?

Sophia said...

This year so many cameras make the track look hazy when it is not. Wonder what that is all about.

Contrast levels? Not all cameras but some of them.

Jojaye said...

MRN wants to know where the marshmallows are for Wimmers crew. LOL

Tracy said...

Jojaye, Wimmer on fire? I missed that!

Dot said...

I would have rather seen Wimmer's car on fire instead of the brake fluid deal.

Karen said...

I think we all missed that.

darbar said...

Where does the US Border Patrol get money to sponsor a race car?

Jojaye said...

@Tracy yup -he got it to the garage it was smoking - as he pulled in it burst into flames inside the garage. MRN reporter said the whole front is purple from fire retardants

Vicky D said...

And Leffler goes sailing by Kenny Wallace.

So, will the Shrub lap the entire field? Races like that aren't good for Nascar.

Oh Crap, Kenny runs out of gas.

June 6, 2009 8:50 PM

Probably the confiscated cash, & from property auctions.

Tracy said...

@Darbar, I know they were using the Border Patrol car for recruiting purposes, but they're not accepting any applications right now, so... During a downpour at Richmond, we huddled under the Border Patrol tent, and I talked at length to one of the officers. They're not taking any new people on, so I don't expect them to be around next year...

Sophia said...

Wow! That's terrible his car burst into flames. Hope Wimmer is ok. dang

Jojaye said...

@Sophia - MRN had an interview with him - he's ok

Vicky D said...

Have we heard anything from a pit reporter about Wimmer? Guess they should read Pit Road Reporting For Dummies Part II

Jojaye said...

I hope Brad doesn't get blinded by SDDD 's cape!

Andrew said...

Uh, JP, that's Brian, not Brad.

Robyn said...

Enjoy the rest of the race.

darbar said...

I'm turning off this race. With only 11 cars on the lead lap, this is stupid. Sorry, but I can't be sorry to see the Red Wings car off.

Sophia said...

Ok. I changed rooms...how many places did sweet Kenny wallace lose? He was doing well until then. :(

Dot said...

There's the 26, no **** Sherlock. Name please. It should be Brian Kez the # 26 in the wall. Doesn't JP do his homework and learn who's who?

Oh boy, 12 cars on the lead lap.

Jojaye said...

Andrew said...

Uh, JP, that's Brian, not Brad.

THANK YOU for the Kenny answer. Darn it.

Well, folks, I have decided to give my heart and energy to IRL now. Wish everybody got Vs instead it's being some obscure station. Open wheel NEEDS the ratings and eyeballs.

Will read this blog and check off and on with tele.

I lost sound on BSPN and am only hearing *Crickets*


sigh

But Dot, aren't they lucky after taking that stuff, they can go up in a airplane!

to some guys Flowmax is INDEED an "engine performance" product. ;-)

When I first heard "Flowmax" I thought it was a new version of a Flow bee the hair cutter that hooked onto the vacuum hose! LOL

Daly Planet Editor said...

zzzzzzzzzzzzz.....such a shame.

Martin Vincent said...

I know you guys hate the "points as of now" updates, but this is about the guaranteed positions. With Robert Richardson running 24th and Scott Wimmer in the garage in 32nd place, the #23 team is just 3 points shy of catching the #40 for the last guaranteed position for the next race.

Sophia said...

@lou
I guess this is my answer on Twitter from Mikey INDIRECTLY about my asking, did Kenny Wallace have to change his cell phone number?

"yall stop calling Kenny. hes tryin to race!"

I want to know if MW tweets his own stuff? lack of punctuation smacks of a kid, but I dunno. So many have no IDEA how to use Twitter. like @and somebody's name to answer something. Then again, some folks are just rude and think they are too good to answer. But for the most part, I always get answers to a comment I have.

Guess that's as close I am gonna get from Mr. Waltrip

@ Vicky D, just like women's products, you could go horse back riding.

@ Jo, Flowbee, too funny.

The viewer question about double file restart, Heidi must not be a race fan.

Wow, what car # threaded that needle?

Bad deal for the Nationwide newcomers, Stenhouse just had Caisse and Bayne involved in his wreck.

Dot said...

It was Kevin Conway. Wow.

Sophia said...

Funny about the horseback riding comment. As a little girl I loved horses and could not WAIT to be able to use said products so I could ride & jump fences on horses! lol

"Greased cheetah strapped to a bullet train?" Okay, officially the best line of the night.

Sophia said...

Ok some lady on Vs does NOT have a good voice for TV..or radio for that matter. A little grating for my taste. Might be perfect voice for newspaper though.

Sorry I did not get her name as they went to commercial

Vicky D said...

That wreck took a whole lot more cars out the race. Maybe the pit road reporters can tell us what is going on?

Dot said...

@ dear Sophia 9:12, OK, you win. That's the funniest thing I've read at TDP. YOU, my friend are killing me.

Sophia said...

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!! what a mess of a wreck.

Only 5 guys..seemed like more. Goodness. Redflagged

Andrew said...

The ARCA race is over; I wonder if ESPN will comment on the results during this red flag.

Lou said...

Finally, interviews in the garage. Would we have them if it were not for the red flag?

Sophia said...

@dot

Daly Planet Editor said...

Eddie Gossage is walking the IRL drivers down through the crowd for driver intros.....wow.

Tracy said...

Watching Versus too. Nice talk with Helio in the truck riding around the track.

Dot said...

Little has got to go. What did you see and feel? Good grief. Just shut up already.
