Just when everyone was thinkin’ that TLVW (aka ol Kylie Busch) was gonna run away with the championship, Carl Edwards gets hot again!  But I may add, not as hot as ol Kylie was after the race!!!!  See it appears that TLVW can run deep into the turn and bump you out of the way, get into your door and crash you, get into your quarter panel and spin you, but he really doesn’t like someone to race him in the same fashion!!!  It appears that ol Kylie is gonna have to write a check and loose a few points for his shenanigans after the checkerd flag fell.  I guess NASCAR doesn’t take lightly to bumpin’ and bangin’ after the race is over!!  This reporter suggests that ol Kylie purchase some Boudreaux’s Butt Paste and keep it in his race car!!!   That will help to heal his “CHAPPED BUTTOCKS” when he looses a race!!!!

 

Now that Bristol has been reconfigured to a progressive banking, and the running of the COT, there is more side-by-side racing and less beating and banging. It is still a very fast paced race, with laps turning in the low 16 seconds.  But it is a race, not a destuction derby!!!  The tempers still flare and the feelings still get hurt!  As Larry Mc and DW say, “you need to leave your feelings and your temper at the front gate”!! 

 

With just two races left til the Chase begins, the race teams are feeling the heat.  With positions 6-14 separated by just a few points, those teams really have to step up their game a few notches to secure a spot in the Chase!!  It is time to throw caution to the wind!  If you got something for ’em, it is time to let the big dog eat!!!!

  1. Journalism at its best, once again….!!!! Sometimes I really think that you missed your calling, but perhaps a job with the Yuma Sun is in your future ~~~ (when and if you ever get to retire…) It was really nice to have the winner this week, it just didn’t help me into the top 3 though. Congrats to Carolyn, Carole and Richard. Thanks for the update on Reed ~~~ my little Peachtree City, GA darlin ~~~ I hope he has a better chance to “show his stuff” with his new team next season. Wasn’t that quite a show Carl and Lil Kylie put on for all of us on Sat. night !!!! My, My, My…..

    Keep up the good reporting…….
