Thanks MJ, I didn't have the info for Carl, but Homestead is turning into about like Lowes (now Charlotte) use to be for Jimmy Johnson.

Tony has 2 wins at this track, how is it not a good track for him?

From what one of the ESPN announcers said during practice today, Tony's 2 wins (1999 & 2000) were both before the track was reconfigured in 2003 from a flat track to variable banking. Carl's 2 wins (2008 & 2010) were both on the current configuration.

Fine. I always want Tony to win too, but no one wins all the time. I just don't think this is the race he's going to win. I've been wrong about my gut feelings before, I just think this is another yr that will be 1-2 points behind & lose out like 2 yrs ago. I was so hopeful then, even had my money saved up for that championship jacket. Needless to say I still have it in an envelope marked Tony's Championship Jacket still. I'm tired of holding onto it & not being able to buy the jacket. I really want him to win & I hope he proves me wrong by winning the championship.

History is just that-History-as seen on tv.Keselowski won the NW race from the pole in a Dodge today,doesn't mean Carl will tomorrow.Found On Rotterdam Dump-i mean FORD may have alot of help tomorrow,but so does Chevy with HMS and RCR teams especially.Regardless who wins it tomorrow{Tony of course},least it'll be someone differant this year and Tony and his team surprised all of us with a great chase run that was for sure thought to be Jeff and Brad before the first chase race even started.The troubles seemed to start for Kevin at Dega,Brad seemed to lose the momentum they had and Jeff i don't know what the #### happened.Still say JJ finishes in the top five,i honestly can't deny the man and his talent-but the streak has finally ended.Tony will get it done tomorrow and i could give a rats @$$ about Carl,Ford or the cat in the hat. :mrgreen:

Daaaaaaannnnnnnnnnggggg, didn't realize a quick-n-simple statement would ruffle so many feathers.
I for one am excited to see what happens. Regardless the outcome, we've been able to see one helluva final 10 races. I still feel Smoke is gonna pull this off, LET'S GO RACIN' !! 8-) 8-)

I look at the fact that Carl did well when he had nothing to lose because he was out of the points at that point, whereas today he has everything to lose.

I get Carl's hunger, but I still think Tony has the advantage because he is just having fun and just enjoying the ride.
