The Bristol Bash and Gash

Here are a few tidbits that are floating around here after the Bristol race:

 

1) Kyle Busch really acted like an immature young twenty-something after the race when he ran into Carl's car to show his displeasure int he way Carl passed him - wait a minute ... he is a young twenty-something ... oh, just forget it (but I think Carl won't).

 

2) Kasey Kahne can't catch a break. That was a huge wreck. Man. I also feel sorry for some of those other guys too like Hornish, and Robby Gordon.

 

3) It was cool to see Kenny Schrader back in the Cup Series. Why didn't Childress just hire Kenny as a filler in the 33 car ... oops ... I mean the 07 car until Richard's grandson Austin ready to take over the driving duties because we all know that is what is going to happen eventually anyway. Don't we?

 

4) Casey Mears moves on over to RCR for next year. I wonder how long he'll be there until Austin shows up to take over Casey's ride?

 

5) Can you believe that Dale Jr jumped the re-start. Holey Cow, I can't either. Sometimes when you dig yourself a hole, you just can't get out of it no matter how hard you try and that was the case here. He still moved in front of Jimmie in the points though.

 

6) Speaking of Jimmie, can you believe his luck too? I think all of the drivers at Hendrick Motorsports have monkeys on their backs right about now - although I think some of the drivers outside the top 12 would rather have the Hendrick monkeys on their backs instead of the gorillas that they currently have.

 

That's it for now.
