All things Tony

Tony said when he found out that he was 8 points behind Carl Edwards:
"You better be worried, you are not going to have an easy three weeks."
I love how he said this with a big smile on his face. I could not be happier.

Now that's the SMOKE I want to see
#### yeah! 2 weeks ago, I was ready to fire Grubb for bad calls two weeks ago..but He made the right calls today! In my topic I posted yesterday, I predicted him winning the race today...Like I said, You don't show your full hand, You have to keep the competition scratching their heads.. saying 'Where did he come from?" Especially with all the talk this week about how Tony has not had a top 15 finish there since 2007.. but Smoke and company, never gave up.. kept their car clean, like he said he would do ..and mission accomplished! With a win to go with it!
Hats off to the Pit Crew, and Tony's never say "Die" Attitude! Good job,..lets go to Texas and get us another chase Victory!

In post race presser Carl said I am still trying to figure out where Tony came from because he pitted for a cut tire or something and all of sudden he was right there and Gordon said "they were saying he took 4 tires but I swear he had to have taken 2 because he came from nowhere".
Plus Tony was being Tony regarding guys taking each other out on the track rather than handling in the garage.

Great remark by Tony in the post race. That gets fans on both sides fired up and also gets all fans talking. Was a great effort from everyone at SHR. Best thing they did was the call about halfway to make a BIG change on the car. After that he took off. 8 back with 3 to go. Yeah that 99 should be running scared. I think Tony knows that he still has some wins left in him before the year is done.

That was an awesome race. I smell a championship.
I have a great Idea for a commercial When Tony wins the Championship. Can he walk up to Jimmy and say "Thanks for holding for me can I'll take it back now.

We mustn't forget to have Tony hand Jimmie a pair of bookends with Tony's insignia on them for SMOKE to put one either side of all those trophies. We would not want Jimmie to forget who he beat for that trophy and who he lost it to.

Love your idea for the commercial, Muskrat
Let's all keep our fingers and toes crossed and hope for the best. No bad luck now and Tony, my man, keep your head in the game and focused. We know you are the best and want that championship just as much as you do.

Didn't get to see his Winner's Circle interview until later, but I did see the Post-Race Press Conference live, and he was in perfect Tony form. I loved how they ended it too. His challenge is priceless and I think has unnerved Edwards; now I understand why he was like he was during his Post-Race Conference.
Love, love, love the bookend idea and the commercial!
Hate that I have no way to watch the races. I may have to actually go someplace to watch for the next three weeks, or try to go to Homestead - 4 hours away.

Its going to be a great chase the way things are going. Exciting for sure. I think both Tony and Carl came back from really bad race starts... and thats how you win a championship. GO SMOKE!!
Great bookend idea..... I might have to get me some of those. lol
