    Gracie had 3 great sleeps in Richmond.Kyle put her to bed nicely.What is up with the bleeding heart weiners of the sport? I thought it was so cool to see Carl run across the line in taledega and endanger the whole world everybody on earth and probably digger and no one says anything and digger didnt even get fined for observing the ordeal. Now a few weeks ago a crew member chases a tire and gets not even on diggers turf and the fat boys o nascar go off the sugar level charts.Someone please get me a nut for digger so we can get back to the thrills and spills of racing and forget about all the chicken dancing nonsense.

    I think no one said anything about Carl Edwards’ run across the finish line at Talladega because he did so when the field was running the cool down lap at caution-like speeds. When the crewman chased the tire, he did so while the race was still going on, under green. Much more dangerous.
