Qualified 21st??????.......

Sat Aug 25, 2012 7:52 am

Rain storm......Well, here we go again.......I hope his starting position isn't indicative of how his race car drives or we are in big trouble!!! If he falls out of the top ten, he looses his bonus points for the three wins and may take a spot Ryan needs :( :( Come on you guys you can do better than this! Some one tell me it's going to be ok......my rose colored glasses are starting to change color and my glass is a little shy of half full :( :(

Tony's going to be OK. :roll: :? :o

(fingers, toes, eyes & anything else I can find are crossed as I post this)

Bristol has not been kind to Tony recently. Like you, I hope he doesn't fall out of the top 10 in Chase points and have to rely on a wildcard spot.

It would take a lot for him to fall out of the top ten. He was less points to the good this time last year and with no wins.

He will be okay. 500 laps is plenty of time to make some noise.

It is said that they set the drivers by owner points. I am confused. Ryan is starting 19th, Tony is starting 21st, Jimmie is starting 34th. Somebody want to explain this to me? How in heaven's name does Casey Mears get the pole?

When they started lining the cars up to qualify based on practice speeds, they also changed it to where if it rained but they'd had the first practice session, the speeds set the field. Mears led the session, thus he gets the pole.

If you're a fan of Tony's you've got to have faith in him to get the job done no matter where he starts. I have confidence in him to come from the back to the front and win the hole shabang.

Tony I have faith in, his pit crew not so much. We've seen it too many times this year where a mistake in the pits ruins nearly perfect driving to get to the front.
