    Oh, poor Juan Pablo is going to have a terrible time living down hitting the jet dryer!

    It only gets interesting when there’s a wreck.

    @dtroutma – that was his own fault. If he had stayed in his pit box so his crew could fix the gears, that incident with the Jet Dryer wouldn’t have happened.@pirate227 – you don’t watch many NASCAR races, I see. I think it’s fun to see them battle (withOUT crashing) for being the winner, or at least getting into the top 10 places of a race. Every NASCAR fan has their favorites, and that’s why it’s a great sport.

    p.s: besides, Mr. Litton has his facts backwards: Brad Keselowski only tweeted during the time the race went “Red Flag” (Everyone stops, and usually for a very good reason). He never tweeted while he was racing because he was too busy driving the car!

    Ketri: Saw they declared “mechanical failure”, but not what. What bothers me in the “new” NASCAR is that there is more racing in two laps at Sears Point (excuse me: “Infinion”, another problem with the series) than in 496 miles at Daytona, or any “big oval”. I like to watch racing for the driving skills, not crashes, just as when I participated. I wish there were more road courses on the circuit, same for “Indycar”. Ovals are like watching a freeway from an overpass, waiting for a drunk driver to come along.

    ^ SWIRLYISMS! It was C production in SCCA, and other forms like karing, but no submarines (too claustrophobic!)

    Soccer is like marriage: a lot of work, but almost no scoring.

    ^^Sorry, Ketira, blurry screen “typo”. Well, actually Grand Prix racing considerably pre-dates Daytona, and in fact, road racing here pre-dates the beach racing at Daytona. Of course, in Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee and the south I also drove many of the roads where “NASCAR” really had it’s roots, but I wasn’t hauling “lightning”, before they went to dirt tracks. (which I’ve also raced on)
