How much did that suck?

Sun Mar 17, 2013 4:54 pm

Sorry, guys, but I'm so tired of watching Tony's day go to c*** every stinking week! How many laps did it take this week? 6? Geez! Send me the crying towel, Jimmy. I know Bristol is not a good track for him, but he barely got started and boom. I know I'm a whiner, but when Tony doesn't have chance in heck, its hard to root for someone else. Sigh....but there's a long way to go yet. Thanks, I feel better now.

that sucked BAD. I was so mad that I almost didn't watch the rest of the race but I couldn't find anything else on worth watching. I actually ended up falling asleep through most of the rest, woke up right when they went to Kahne's victory lane celebration.

The thing that bothered me so much was how did he cut down a tire 9 laps into the race?? DW thought he may have gotten into someone (Truex? I forget) but when they showed the replay it didn't really look like it. I was listening to Tony's radio and no one said boo about the tire which I thought was weird, especially with Tony's past gripes with Goodyear.

California is always boring but hopefully it will be better to Smoke than Bristol has been!! On to the next one...

Could have been debris on the track from someone else getting together. Seems like we change in fortune. Time to start making voodoo dolls? ;)

That was frickin' miserable. Had such high hopes for the day and after 12 of 500 laps it's dashed. Absolutely sickening. Of course it was about as sickening in 2008 when Harvick wrecked him with like four to go in regulation and caused a GWC.

It's been a long time since I flipped off a race before it was over (unless it was the last lap like the '04 and '08 Daytona 500s) but I came awfully close today.

seemed many had tires issues, wonder if GY will change it up for the summer race.

A friend and I have been joking that we're waiting for Tony's next Goodyear rant. :twisted: ;) All three SHR cars have had tires blow so far and yes, there have been others with tire problems. That's just how it goes sometimes, a cut tire, debris, whatever, but it sure is frustrating.

It was bad. It was really bad. The only thing that made it somewhat tolerable was the scuffle between former teammates post race!

Far be it for me to start any trouble but.....is it me or does every time a new lady friend appear on TV during the anthem does the racing suck? Big time?

And I was listening to his radio....Bob and Steve both asked if he thought he had a tire going down....an unfortunate set of circumstances YES.

some speculations was maybe he started with the pressures to low. I guess a couple cars had that speculations. Ryans spotter warned Ryan the 14 was slow, when Ryan went past, he reported that Tony had a left rear flat. Of course a lap later Tony spun. So it didnt help any.

Wonder where his tire pressures were over what the GY recommended pressures were.
