Tony in the car that he lead 163 laps at Vegas says the car is bad to bone. So far very happy. Great sign for the race Sunday.

He was what, 14th in the 1st practice? Decent qual order, but not great. I'll be watching today's 2nd practice & quals to see how he & Ryan look. :D

I'm trying, doc, but at this track it's rare for a driver starting this far back to win. :| When he won last year, he started 5th. None of the top 3 started below 7th.

Tony just needs a top ten.

I have faith in Smoke when he makes comments like that. He doesn't say those things often. I think he needs a top 5 unless BK and Clint have trouble.

If he is approaching Atlanta with the intention of "points racing" then I agree, Schmoopy, a top 10 finish would be great and really help him stay in the top 10 Chase drivers. I'm looking more at his chance of winning.

I won't say I am a little concerned, but he is starting 20th. However on the bright side he did finish in 2nd during the second practice.

I don't like that Tony starts 20th but at least BK is starting 14th. It doesn't really matter Tony has won a ton of races starting farther. What matter os how good he was in practice and that he likes his car a ton. Once the tires wear he'll run his line and go straight to the front. This car has never qualifed well for him even at Vegas he start like 15th. I'll be working from 10am to 9pm today so I'll have to hurry home to see Tony take the checkered flag 8-).

Tony is not points racing these last two races. He has already said this weekend that a win is what he needs abd that is his goal.
