I really think the tires made the difference. I listened on the scanner during the race and they couldn't get a handle on it. It was better at the end of the race, but they had no where to go but up! On to Indy!
Yeah, been awake for almost 2 days straight watching races (cos they're on in the middle of the night for me) and when I realised Smoke was around 20th for majority of the race, I sort of dosed of for a bit only to wake up with a few laps to go.
Eh. 12th is better than 20th, I guess. Still, it put him down to 7th on the standings and there's still a few races yet till The Chase so I'm starting to worry a little.
When I grow up, I want to be just like Tony Stewart. The day I race my first Sprint Cup race, I'll know I made it. ♥ GO SMOKE! ♥
