I'll take fifth...

Sun Oct 21, 2012 6:31 pm

Holy crap what a stupid race. If you'da told me Tony was gonna finish fifth today I'da said "#### yeah, I'll take it." Great job by Tony and the whole team - that one sequence of pit stops nonwithstanding. ESPN of course played the audio of him chewing them out but conveniently left out the part afterwards where he gave them a pep-talk.

That probably wasn't a fifth-place car, but Tony drove the heck out of it and they never gave up. Proud of our boys today.

Great job Tony, :D :D he went from the back to the front I can't even remember how many times and good pit call from Steve at the end! The pit crew did make some mistakes with the wrench left in the window........Their biggest problem is they just don't have any speed in the car and normal adjustments don't seem to help their issues....... Don't know why?!? :roll: :roll:

I have only been to one Nascar race myself. Here is my one word of advice. If you get pit passes, make sure before you get there that you know what access your pass allows you. I don't think I took full advantage of mine.

Have a great time, and bring Tony good luck.

Wonder what Jeff Burton thinks about it? :lol:
