Live Blogging Nationwide Series From Richmond (ESPN2 - 7PM ET)


It's been a very long day for the NASCAR on ESPN team. The conclusion is the Nationwide Series race with Marty Reid on the call.

Nicole Briscoe will open the pre-race with Rusty Wallace and Brad Daugherty from the Infield Pit Studio. Reid will be joined for the race by Dale Jarrett and Andy Petree, who have been on the air since noon. On pit road are Jamie Little, Vince Welch, Dave Burns and Dr. Jerry Punch. Tim Brewer is in the Tech Garage.

RIR is a tight little track where the action happens fast and the racing is rough. Trying to follow the script of zooming in tight has failed ESPN time and time again in producing this telecast. We shall see if they try the same thing tonight.

This post will serve to host your comments on the ESPN2 production of the Nationwide Series race from Richmond. To add your TV-related comments, just click on the comments button below.

Hey folks, thank goodness for nice weather tonight. Been raining down that way a LOT.

Roland said...

The KHI shutdown should have led the show. Not an overhyped rivalry among teammates

Daly Planet Editor said...

It never was on NN today! They followed the Cup hype script.

Gymmie said...

Happy Race Night Planeteers <3

Wish the rain would come here to TX :(

Buschseries61 said...

Chasing each other to the garage:

#03 Scott Riggs
#41 Johnny Chapman
#42 Tim Andrews
#44 Jeff Green
#46 Chase Miller
#47 Brian Keselowski
#48 Dennis Setzer
#49 Mark Green
#71 Matt Carter
#75 Carl Long
--------------------
DNQ's that would have raced:
#04 Fain Skinner
#08 Casey Roderick
#13 Jennifer Jo Cobb
#50 TJ Bell

OSBORNK said...

I think the KHI situation is the tip of the iceberg. If a successful team can't survive, what will happen to the less successful ones?

Roland said...

Why does Espn even bring that cutaway car? Or for that matter the entire Tech Garage? Just give Brewer a tire and a cameraman cause every segment he does involves a tire. Tires are round, tires blow out, ect...

Roland said...

Brad drops a mini bombshell "Jason Leffler has been told he wont have a ride next year". Im not surprised at all. Hasnt done anything in a long time. Solid back half of the top 10 but no chance of winning. Im willing to put money on James Buescher replacing him next year.

Roadgeek Adam said...

Hold the presses, Jason Leffler does not have a ride in 2012? Where did that come from? Steve Turner must not be happy.

Also: GO KENNY

Also again: Hi guys.

Roadgeek Adam said...

Roland: I would open the ride to Josh Wise, Immediately.

ChrisK said...

Did Brad say "Craftsman Truck Series" during the pre-race?

The promos that ESPN is running for tomorrow's race say that Junior and "Smoke" have to win to get in the Chase. WRONG!

Roadgeek Adam said...

Um...is the mic low or is she that bad? She sounds nasally as hell.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Yeesh...

sbaker17 said...

Re: The Anthem
All the cats in the alley behind my house just took off........

Roland said...

Well Josh Wise isnt marrying the boss' daughter. But he is very deserving of a ride.

Roadgeek Adam said...

People I would open the #38 to: Josh Wise, Jeremy Clements, Mike Bliss, Nelson Piquet Jr (considering he don't have a ride next year :( )

NorCalFan said...

Solid "F" for the anthem. Not only did she sound nasally, she was out of breath when it came time for a high note and I could hear everytime she swallowed. Just awful.

Roadgeek Adam said...

49 made the field? STOP THE PRESSES.

I would love it if Kenny Wallace won this. Kenny got gypped earlier this year, got to 3rd, then got relegated to 13th by pit road.

Daly Planet Editor said...

BTW, that whole Kevin Harvick thing today has shaken up the entire sport! TV guys might not say it, but it was huge.

jerry said...

So were sure Harvick was lying when he said he wanted to focus on cup?

another awful mailbag question.

Charlie said...

If Nascar is looking to make a come back they have to put together a better television broadcast.

OSBORNK said...

Some are sugggesting that the Harvick "merger" is due to family problems.

Charlie said...

Why did they zoom in when if they zoomed out they could have shown two battles going on.

NorCalFan said...

Free Nascar.com Raceview tonight with scanners. After double-clicking at least six different links to get to it, I was successful.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Well, like in these kind of situations where there is no clear answer...we just wait for the other shoe to drop.

Roadgeek Adam said...

Of course Cup 1-2-3-6. Where have we seen this before? Oh yeah, every freaking week

Charlie said...

They use the overhead camera show and they are so zoomed in you can only see 3 cars then zoomed to one. Is not one reason for a camera that high is to get a wider shot of the track?

jerry said...

No virtual video on trackpass for me.

Charlie said...

show = shot

Roadgeek Adam said...

:| - This is a blast so far, Carl Edwards winning, again

Daly Planet Editor said...

Danica going to have a long night.

OSBORNK said...

Keeping the camera on Danica even though she is already a lap down.

Sally said...

These Cup drivers really suck the life out of these races, don't they?

Charlie said...

zoom out, other cars around the car you are singling in on has to make different decisions because of the cars around him. Show it.

Roadgeek Adam said...

Sally: That's an understatement. I want Edwards to get that ESPN job, gets him out of the 60 and maybe can put someone needing a ride in the 60. If Joe Gibbs let McDowell take the 18 and Truex get the 20, and Penske gave Hornish the 12 (confirmed I believe), along with the 22 to Jacques Villenvue (full time ride). I'd be very happy.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Marty Reid....he's already bored!

Roland said...

Well I struggled to find an MRN station that streams, then got a phone call on the pace lap and just now got done with that. Still havent found an MRN station. All the ones that usually stream are either not streaming or on high school football. Has MRN told stations not to online stream?

Charlie said...

booo they skipped over mentioning Kenny Wallace

Daly Planet Editor said...

Roland, officially they cannot stream this content online.

The stations that do are usually in small markets that Turner and NASCAR are not going to chase.

You can try the "I heart radio" app for portable devices.

Roadgeek Adam said...

Graphic Fail: 6th - 7th - 8th - 9th - 10th - 1st - 2nd - 3rd - 4th - 5th - 6th - 7th - 8th - 9th - 10th.

I liked the 8th through 15th through the field, gave highlight to the teams that need it.

Roadgeek Adam said...

Yay Caution. Boo not Cup Driver

jerry said...

Wait a minute, The 20 is sponsored by Schick(sp?), and Busch and Hamlin are Gillette young guns?

I'm not surprised.

sbaker17 said...

Is it just me that is dozing off?

Roland said...

I think MRN might have chased, cause I went through about 30 stations, most of which usually have the race, and I either got High School Football or "Stream not available due to broadcast restrictions" which I never used to get. Worked fine every week till now.

I dont get it at all. My local station dumped Nascar after last season. Online streams give people like me in areas with no access the chance to listen, as well as hear the advertisements. Its not hurting a thing.

With free Trackpass, scanners, and leaderboard, youd think Nascar.com would make the MRN stream available. Wrong.

Because of all this I havent paid attention to anything going on in this race. Guess Ill rewind to the beginning and start over.

Roadgeek Adam said...

Steven Wallace was moving when that caution came out. He's now 5th? Anyone for a surprise?

Anonymous said...

Not too impressed with coverage - booth is weak, camerawork is weak and even when they can use a longer shot here and there, they go back to narrow focus on the top 3.

May just end up turning off the TV broadcast altogether.

Anonymous said...

online streaming WNBD Daytona Fl

Buschseries61 said...

This broadcast has been a load of **** so far. I saw the #40 blowing up in the corner of the screen, but it did not fit the ESPN agenda. Instead we got a shot of a crewman.

Roadgeek Adam said...

2 Cup drivers out in 2 seconds.

Buschseries61 said...

Is everyone asleep at ESPN? Reid has his energy set at about 20% right now.

Roland said...

Thank you anon!!

Anonymous said...

Hey, now, Busch - loads of manure are at least useful in agriculture.

I don't see why they can't use their Cup people to do/assist with broadcast mechanics and the booth.

Daly Planet Editor said...

This is his only opportunity, he got dumped off the Cup coverage and this is his reaction?

Come on Marty!

red said...

finally finished hunting for the free scanners for tonight's race. what a mess that site has become in recent years.

Charlie said...

Red, next time you do get the scanner save that site to your favorites and it might work next time.

NorCalFan said...

Hey everyone. FYI - MRN is on Nascar.com's free Raceview tonight. You can choose to listen to the drivers, MRN radio or the officials.

Daly Planet Editor said...

I had to use the link on the NNS page itself. All the others opened to Trackpass sales page.

NASCAR.com = disaster.

Daly Planet Editor said...

ESPN will not allow online video streaming for the NNS races and they have the package through 2014.

NNS is trying to work with NASCAR.com to figure out what they can offer since that is not going to be a RaceBuddy style app.

I think this is a good step in the right direction. Get it sponsored and offer it for every NNS race next season.

sbaker17 said...

Daly Planet Editor said...


NASCAR.com = disaster.

September 9, 2011 8:30 PM

How about:
NASCAR = disaster

Roadgeek Adam said...

If Edwards and Busch would not be there, Bayne, Stenhouse, K. Wallace, S. Wallace, Sadler Top 5, how does that sound? :)

Jimm57 said...

I wasted the first 30 min fighting w/scanner, even logged in, got the "start the 14 day" screen. Ended up just clicking on the front page graphic and got right in. Sheesh!

jerry said...

Had no trouble finding trackpass, keyed in Nascar.com and it was right there on the front page.

Working properly, now that's another question?

Daly Planet Editor said...

I'm really bummed that all this garbage is coming down in the sport on the opening NFL weekend.

Not good timing.

Sally said...

Pretty bad when a track that usually has some of the best races is either producing a dud, or the TV refuses to show any good action on the track. Never sure which it is.

Buschseries61 said...

The Trucks & NNS both need a major revamp next season. This is complete boredom.

Charlie said...

If a new viewer just heard how many cars are out of the race and only saw a few wrecks don't you think they might wonder why.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Sally, the booth should be chasing the racing and Marty should be pumping it up and making it exciting. That is his job.

This is deadly TV.

Sally said...

You know BZF's 'solution' will be the add the 'chase' format to both of them.

Jimm57 said...

Gimme a break w/Barracuda already! Song came out when I was a Senior in HS, and its been played to death ever since!

Roadgeek Adam said...

Joe Gibbs has proven he has two development drivers (Truex and McDowell) that could easily do the job and maybe keep sponsorship (at least McDowell could), yet Busch and Logano/Hamlin dominate those two rides.

Sally said...

JD, you're absolutely right. However, the booth goes for the 'easy' shot of the leader(s) and ignores everything else. Marty has proven that he isn't the right man for PXP, as he has no frame of reference for the cars.

jerry said...

With Patrick, Carmichael, and Pastrana coming in full time next year, it would be a good time to limit cup drivers. People will be watching anyway.

They said there would be a rule change for 2012 earlier this season, I hadn't heard anything else though.

Jimm57 said...

I hear ya Sally. We went to last Falls Cup race in Richmond. Came home and watched the DVR, and couldnt believe it was the same race we saw the day before. Totally different story with the TV presentation.

Charlie said...

tight shots do not show the race.

red said...

apropos of very little: just confirmed that i'm camping at charlotte in october for the night race! driving down thursday so i'll have time to visit my younger brother & family plus hit HOF! not gonna lie: i am not a camping sort of person but it will be a blast!

we discussed buying n'wide tickets now but decided to buy walk-up tickets instead. as my friend said "no track has sold out this year so why don't we wait & get tickets at the track?"

hoping the weekend re-energizes me for the sport. this race certainly isn't doing it for me.

Daly Planet Editor said...

red, good deal. Should be fun. Great time of the year to be there.

Roadgeek Adam said...

Jerry: Yeah, that's right, Travis Pastrana, Ricky Carmichael and Danica Patrick, three stars from three different styles of automobiles. That should bring in viewers.

However, we need the Cup drivers to stop dominating. We've seen people like Bayne, Stenhouse, Kenny Wallace, Steven Wallace, Aric Almirola, Elliot Sadler, Michael McDowell, Ryan Truex, Reed Sorenson, Justin Allgaier, Michael Annett, and even others like Brian Scott, Josh Wise, Front Row Joe and Mike Bliss compete. All of them could put Ws in those columns, but that's hard when 22 of 26 races have been won by Cup drivers.

Daly Planet Editor said...

I'm telling ya, I am worried about the truck series surviving.

Having KHI just throw in the towel is a stunner.

Anonymous said...

After more in-depth coverage on Danica - despite being a lap down and mediocre driving, it occurred to me:

Booth coverage is like someone talking about painting fire hydrants on the news while tornadoes rip through town and aliens incite the populace to riot.

Just missing everything.

Buschseries61 said...

Sigh...this is just bad.

OSBORNK said...

Many folks on this blog and elsewhere want to severely limit or ban the cup drivers from racing in the JV series. I think that would be a mistake and would ultimately destroy the series. Many of us are familiar with some of the NNS drivers but many are not and would not attend or watch races when the majority of the drivers are unknown to them. I think race attendance would drop as would the number of viewers on TV. Worse than that, I think sponsorships or the value of them would drop dramatically. How many sponsors will sponsor an unknown?

Jimm57 said...

Wow! Caution, and Tims turnin a wrench w/ his hand! FASCINATING!

Nice drivin' Danika

Jimm57 said...

I think she gets a fine for that!!!

Charlie said...

The scanner is delayed when I listen to it but they called the spin before they showed it on Tv.

red said...

JD, that was our thinking. we're a small band of 5 or so but we're thinking of a yearly pilgrimmage to a track within reasonable driving distance. every year, a different track so we're now planning for bristol in 2012.

i'm feeling that i want to get back to actually going to races when i can. tv has just drained all the excitement & energy out of out for me -- i may not even last tonight.

Roland said...

Good job Danica! Go find the 18 and the 60 and do the same thing.

Daly Planet Editor said...

OSBORNK,

Honestly, I would rather watch Allgaier battle K. Wallace, Sorenson and the regulars.

This just ain't getting it done.

Daly Planet Editor said...

red,

Having the same struggle.

RWar24 said...

I think for the overall health of Nascar, either NNS or Trucks needs to be disolved. The racing is good in Trucks, but there's just no sponsorship available anymore. Look how many trucks in the past were sponsored by the manufacturer.. Chevy, Toyota, Power Stroke. You just knew those sponsorship packages were going to last.

Roadgeek Adam said...

OSBORNK, then NASCAR needs to tweak the engines of the 60, 18, etc when Cup drivers are in the car. Overall domination like this is not helping the underfunded teams.

Also, if anyone saw qualifying, did anyone other than me notice Marty Reid handle a professional conversation that ended up letting Brad and Rusty blow hot air that they don't like the testing rules? I'm impressed.

Roland said...

@red Charlotte is good, but Bristol blows Charlotte out of the water. Youll have an awesome time.

OSBORNK said...

JD--What we want to see won't keep the NNS series or the truck series alive. There has to be enough sponsors and fans to pay the bills.

RWar24 said...

Note to director, if you see smoke from one camera, either zoom out, or switch to a camera that shows where the smoke is coming from.

GinaV24 said...

Marty's bored? Me, too. the races at richmond used to be lots of fun to watch, but they've been terrible for several years.

Roadgeek Adam said...

There was an article the other day about putting the Chase in the other two series, that would actually keep eyes on those two series.

Do I question it? To some degree. At least if Stenhouse or Sorenson won the championship we won't have a winless champion.

Roadgeek Adam said...

This is turning into a classic Richmond race.

Charlie said...

Perhaps with the cup guys out you will see better racing and people like that. It may draw more people to watch.

red said...

i have the tv on but i wouldn't exactly say i'm watching the race.

Buschseries61 said...

OSBORNK - I kind of agree with you. The problem with Nationwide is that nothing is going on. Ten cars park, fifteen regulars ride around underfunded just wanting to finish, another chunk have good equipment and do nothing with it (#11, 62, 66, etc). Danica is mid pack. That leaves #2, 6, 16, 18, 20, 22, 31, 32, 33, 60 as the only real contenders all season.

Sally said...

The Nationwide series used to do just fine without all the Cup drivers as 'regulars'. They had their own 'stars' and their won fans. When Harvick had to run both series in 2001 because of losing Earnhardt, it gave the idea to other Cup drivers. Mark martin used to be the only Cup regular who ran th series regularly with a Cup team behind him. That's how he got all those wins in the series. The Busch series also didn't run on the same tracks as the Cup series as often, and ran more short tracks. It used to cost a LOT less to sponsor one of their cars. Now, the Cup teams have escalated the cost, along with Nascar, their COT's and inspection fees, etc.

GinaV24 said...

Red, I'm headed to Charlotte for the October race, too. Bring a heavy coat - it is COLD in the stands at night in October, but lots of fun.

Charlie said...

The camera director has no idea what a car race is all about.

GinaV24 said...

I don't think that having the cup drivers moonlighting in both the truck and the nationwide series on an unlimited basis is good for either one. I find it incredibly boring to watch the races every week knowing it will be the same people up front that I see on Sunday.

IMO, limit the # of races they can do in a season.
I was shocked to read the news about KHI folding its operation in trucks. If that doesn't make NASCAR think hard, they are totally brain dead.

Roadgeek Adam said...

This is becoming a wreckfest, as pictured for a short track. Those saying this was getting boring?

Roadgeek Adam said...

And Gina: Even when they dominate (like Stenhouse at IRP) they sometimes don't even end up winning.

Roland said...

My MRN stream went to High School Football so I fired up the scanner. Listening to TBayne. Spotter warned him twice that the 88 (who was trying to pass him on that last run before the caution for the 14) had hit everything tonight. Caution comes out and Trevor says "he cant go anywhere cause he has the 20 blocking him all over the track and the 88 bonzai-ing him in every corner" crew chief says "your gonna have to do some growing up and be patient"

We need more of this on the TV broadcast.

TLE said...

ESPN is almost as bad as Fox, all replays. To many side by side shots. Why have the blimp or helicopter show up?

Daly Planet Editor said...

Adam, the telecast is boring. As is often the case, an exciting race is going on in the background.

Rainy2228 said...

Almorola dislikes ANYONE in a Gibbs car...THATS a fact since J.D. fired him a few years ago....J.D. was a smart owner with that decisiion....Almorola is a weapon, just not quite as bad as S. Wallace...

Roadgeek Adam said...

We know Carl Edwards will be going to the booth, the question is for how long and when. If Jack Roush thought about it, I feel that Jeremy Clements deserves a ride (he's tried so hard since about 2007), I'd give him a shot in the 60.

Roland said...

And as a follow up a few minutes later Trevor says "Im sorry for getting so frustrated" and "go tell the 20 spotter that if he keeps blocking me we it wont be pretty"

Roadgeek Adam said...

No offense JD, but unlike most of the people here, I don't know what tight angles are. I don't know camera views. I listen to Marty Reid, Dale Jarrett and Andy Petree. Brad Daugherty and Rusty are dead weight in my ears.

I enjoy a good race. I can tell when Marty screws up, but I am one of the few here who sees potential, especially after this afternoon's qualifying session. However, the dead weight isn't helping him.

Roland said...

And now ESPN jumps on what I just have been talking about

tle said...

JD,

Do you think the poor broadcast is a result of the the networks not making any money? Wasn't it posted someplace that FOX & ESPN has lost money on each race broadcast?

Charlie said...

Tomorrow night Michigan vs Notre Dame college football or more of this.

Buschseries61 said...

ESPN really wants Leffler to do something to Harvick.

red said...

Gina24: thanks! i'll take any advice folks can offer.

Daly Planet Editor said...

This segment should be interesting.

Jimm57 said...

This 60/18 and 20/16 shot IS SO STUPID! What a waste!

Daly Planet Editor said...

Enough of the pit reporters, call the freaking race!

Charlie said...

They don't dare zoom out. It is like something bad will happen to them.

GinaV24 said...

new drinking game - take a drink whenever someone says "he has a really really good car".

Roadgeek Adam said...

I see fuel strategy becoming important here. Anybody else?

The booth said they could, but I question it.

Anonymous said...

I've been listening more to my driver's radio and scanning other assorted radio-stuff on the side than actually watching the broadcast.

Jimm57 said...

Dear Mr. TV Director,

I got a W I D E S C R E E N TV!

Please use it to its fullest view and fill it with cars racing each other!

No more split screens showing 2 cars each. You're driving me nuts!

GinaV24 said...

Adam, yes, I know, I find it frustrating that when I tune into the race all I hear are - edwards, busch, blah blah blah. the difference between watching a race on TV (see all the single car shots) and being there (being able to watch the whole race) aggravates me beyond belief.

Red - it is usually really beautiful during the daytime, but I literally take an entire change of clothes for the race because I hate to be cold. I take my ski jacket, hooded sweatshirt, hat and gloves -- the locals look at me like I'm insane - but I'm not cold!

Charlie said...

That got another shot in on Steven Wallace before the commercial. Not sure why.

Roadgeek Adam said...

50 to go. Caution would be nice. Some racing to take out Harvick, Busch and Edwards would be better.

Roland said...

@Charlie because of $$$. 5 Hour Energy money to be exact.

Roadgeek Adam said...

No luck for Trevor, again.

Roland said...

Heard the Trevor thing live as it happened over his radio. He is not happy. And like Jamie said they warned him several times. Wow now him and Harvick into it. This is awesome to listen to!!!!

Jimm57 said...

And STUPIDITY takes out the 16

Roadgeek Adam said...

PARK THE 33 AND THE 38. THIS IS INSANE

Charlie said...

congratulations they kept the camera on a race and then got to see a wreck as it happened.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Idiots, have at it.

GinaV24 said...

Wow, that's great a well funded CUP team takes out one of the regulars. Just because he can. Sheesh, glad I didn't spend money to drive to Richmond for this race.

Buschseries61 said...

Andy sounds bored out of his mind.

Roadgeek Adam said...

OMG OBJECTIVITY

the boys are not playing nicely tonight.

Roland said...

Jamie "Kevin says his car got loose because of the 16". No freakin way. I would have never guessed

Anonymous said...

you would think the booth would show a little excitement over an incident like that...but nooooo. they make exciting stuff boring. that takes real talent.

Daly Planet Editor said...

None of them even raised a voice.

GinaV24 said...

JD, your comment is absolutely on!

Idiots indeed.

Buschseries61 said...

ZOOMED-IN

GinaV24 said...

hmmm did someone in the truck wake up? they are showing some racing

Charlie said...

15 Laps to go.

Jimm57 said...

These one car camera shots are driving me CRAZY!

Daly Planet Editor said...

Like trying to watch a race through a telescope.

Roland said...

Top 2 are Cup drivers. The remaining 8 in the top 10 are Nationwide drivers.

John in Chico said...

Daly Planet Editor said...
Like trying to watch a race through a telescope.

Or a straw....

NorCalFan said...

Marty Reid is better suited for calling a golf game than a race. No excitement in his voice. Boring.

GinaV24 said...

oh gee, kyle is going to win again. Ho hum, no wonder people aren't bothering to buy tickets to these races.

RWar24 said...

YAWN!!! Thanks Kyle Busch and other for killing this series.

Roland said...

Well...that sucked.

jerry said...

boring

Sally said...

I'm really not impressed with Kyle winning the most Busch series races of all time. Not a big accomplishment when you can outspend 95% of the teams on the track.

Roadgeek Adam said...

.....

.....

.....


Do I need to say anything?

To summarize: Ryan Truex deserved his Top 5 finish. After 27 races, Kenny Wallace finally gets the first Top 5 of the season. (A lot of 6th and 7th). Timmy Hill and Danica Patrick get Top 20 finishes. Front Row Joe gets a Top 10.

Daly Planet Editor said...

See if we get a Kenny Wallace interview.

Roland said...

Putting the points and results at the top on the ticker does not replace a full screen graphic. You cant pay attention to the points and results while your watching interviews. Hope the production truck knows this.

Buschseries61 said...

If this is the coverage ESPN wants to provide, football is going to crush them.

Well...at least we have some new feuds. A few nice runs as well.

Jimm57 said...

Blondie did'nt wear the fire suit?

Roland said...

Jamie? Are you for real? The teams didnt merge effective immediately. Come on Jamie do your homework.

jerry said...

The survey on trackpass ask me would I buy sprint/nationwide trackpass for $79.95.

Jimm57 said...

KENNY!

RWar24 said...

Agreed with Roland. I think Jaime is way overrated as a pit reporter. Just a dumb question to Harvick about the merger and crashing cars.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Well, tomorrow night is on ABC. So....that should be fun.

Have a good night folks!

Jimm57 said...

Lets dump quick for stick n ball. Ho hum.

Roadgeek Adam said...

Seeing Kenny get up in tears like that, it was great. A well-deserved top 5 for Kenny and Ryan.

I'll see ya guys tomorrow and see if my Jeff can get win #86 :)

Daly Planet Editor said...

You kind of get the feeling this is Kenny's last stand.

Roadgeek Adam said...

I don't call it a last stand. I call it a comeback.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Have a feeling he is moving back to the STL pretty soon.

Roadgeek Adam said...

And leave one of his best rides in years? I question that. I think he'd probably want to win before calling it a career.
