HOT OR NOT - THINGS STILL GO BETTER WITH COKE

GREETINGS FROM SW OKLAHOMA:

WELL I BET SOME OF YOU THOUGHT ME MISSING LAST WEEK WAS A SIGN OF THE DEATH OF HOT OR NOT, BUT NOT TRUE AT ALL, JUST HAD A TON OF THINGS GOING ON LIKE HOEING THEM WEEDS AND CLEANING SLIME OUT OF THE FISH TANKS, BUT THINGS ARE BACK ON SCHEDULE NOW AND WE ARE GOOD TO GO.

A SHORT NOTE BEFORE WE GET INTO THE RACE, WHEN TONY TAKES THE FLAG IN THE BURGER KING CAR IN JUNE I BELIEVE, ANN, MY WIFE, AND TSFAN WILL BE RIDING WITH HIM. THEY MADE THE HOOD SIGNING SPONSORED BY BK.COM.

I FELT WE ALL SAW A GOOD RACE THIS PAST WEEKEND, I MEAN SEEING JEFF BURTON LOSE HIS TEMPER WAS ENOUGH FOR ME TO HAVE ENJOYED THE RACE AND SEEING "THORN BUSCH" HOLD HIS TEMPER WAS WORTH ALMOST THE SAME AMOUNT.

NOT:

1. MONTOYA'S LUCK: I DON'T EVEN LIKE THIS GUY BUT HIS LUCK THIS SEASON HAS SUCKED BIG ROCKS. HE HAD A VERY GOOD CAR, THEN CUTS DOWN A TIRE AND THE REST OF THE RACE JUST GOES TO POT. I FIND MYSELF WISHING THAT HE COULD HAVE GOOD LUCK AT LEAST ONCE THIS SEASON.

2. #47 PIT MISTAKE: WITH THE TRACK AS HOT AND STICKY AS IT WAS AND THAT EARLY IN THE RACE, TAKING THE 2 TIRES WAS A TOTAL MISTAKE AND MARCUS PAID THE PRICE , LOSES A TIRE, WRECKS THE CAR, AND WAS SCRATCHING HIS HEAD WONDERING WHY DID WE DO THAT .

3. START AND PARKERS: MAYBE THIS SHOULD REALLY BE DIRECTED AT THE NASCAR BRASS, BUT FOR ABOUT 90% OF THE SEASON WE HAVE ONLY HAD 35 OR 36 REAL HONEST RACE CARS ON THE TRACK SO WHY THE HELL NOT DROP THE FIELD TO 36 OR SO AND HAVE THOSE GUYS EITHER PUT UP OR PACK UP. RIGHT NOW THEY ARE JUST STEALING MONEY FROM TEAMS THAT ARE REALLY OUT THERE MAKING A RUN AT THINGS.

4. JIMMIE JOHNSON: ANOTHER D&F FOR THE #48, MAKES YOU WONDER IF MAYBE THE PRESSURE IS STARTING TO CAUSE THE TITANIC OF NASCAR TO DEVELOP A FEW CRACKS.

5. DALE EARNHARDT JR.: I'M NOT SURE WHAT THE DEAL IS , BUT AS MUCH AS I AM A FAN OF DALE JR., I AM BEGINNING TO THINK MAYBE IT IS TIME FOR JR. TO FOLLOW MICHAEL WALTRIP INTO THE OWNERSHIP END OF NASCAR AND FORGET ABOUT THE DRIVING PART OF IT.

HOT:

5. DAVID REUTIMAN: DAVID STARTED 5TH THIS PAST WEEKEND AND DROVE LIKE A BAT OUT OF HELL ALL NIGHT LONG. DAVID MAY WELL END UP BEING THE DARK HORSE IN THE CHASE THIS SEASON. LOOK FOR DAVID TO PUSH AND SHOVE HIS WAY TO THE TOP USING WHATEVER TOOLS HE NEEDS TO GET THERE.

4. MARK MARTIN: MARK IS SUCH AN AMAZING MAN, HE MAKES DRIVING 180 MILES AN HOUR LOOK LIKE A HOLIDAY DRIVE THROUGH ELMER THOMAS PARK, MARK STARTED 11TH AND TOOLED ALONG FOR 600 MILES AND FINISHED 4TH, MOVING HIM UP 1 PLACE IN THE CHASE LINEUP.

3. KYLE BUSCH: KYLE DROVE A REALLY GREAT RACE, OVERCAME SOME PRETTY BIG PROBLEMS, TOOK A SEVERE TONGUE LASHING AFTER THE RACE FROM JEFF BURTON AND DIDN'T LOSE HIS TEMPER. ME THINKS THE BOY IS GROWING UP.

2. JAMIE McMURRAY: JAMIE WAS THE MIRCLE BOY OF THE NIGHT HE STARTED 27TH AND FINISHED 2ND, HE DROVE THE WHEELS OFF THE CAR AND TURNED IN A SUPER RACE. WITH THE WAY HE DROVE THAT RACE IT WOULD HAVE BEEN REALLY COOL IF HE COULD HAVE GOTTEN JUST A LITTLE BETTER JUMP ON THAT LAST RESTART AND WON THE RACE. WONDER IF HAVING CHIPPIE ON THE PIT BOX DISTRACTED HIM JUST ENOUGH TO GIVE KURT THE WIN.

1. KURT BUSCH: I DON'T KNOW ABOUT KURT, IT TOOK HIM 600 MILES TO ADVANCE HIS POSITION 1 SLOT, WHAT KIND OF DEAL IS THAT. ONLY KIDDING, KURT LEAD THE MOST LAPS AND TURNED IN A SUPER DUPER RACE, BETWEEN HIM AND STEVE ADDINGTON, WE MAYBE FIXING TO SEE MR. PENSKE BACK IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP CIRCLE.

WELL FOLKS THAT IS HOW I SAW THE RACE, IF I LEFT OUT OR MISSED ANYTHING LET US KNOW.

THAT'S MY OPINION - WHAT'S YOURS

  1. Missed ya last week GUNNY! Good to have you back especially when my boy is taking names and kicking butt getting the well deserved #1 spot on the HOT list! =) BTW - with Kurt doing drag racing on the side very few are going to beat him in the restarts - that boy is on it lately.

    Junior = owner = not even sure if he can do that cuz Kelley has her fingers all over the biz.

    Rooty-Tooty and Cupcake are definitely going to make a run for the Chase - Smoke and a few others best start stepping it up!

  2. Well if having Ann and myself on Tony's will bring him a win in July, I hope that they drive that car for the rest of the year. lol

    I second what Kristen said. We miss Hot and Not when you don't do it. But we understand sometimes life has to come first. Just glad you got back to it this week. lol

    I just cannot believe the season that some of these drivers are having. Reminds me of the days before the COT and the wing. Guess the spoiler is the great equalizer for this car.

    I still say that the baby syndrome is what is causing Johnson problems. Just wait until this kid is born, his season will either totally tank or he will go on a rampage that will set the world of NASCAR on its heels.

  3. Hi Gunaquat!

    Excellent rundown. I'm hoping for a shoot-out finish on one of these races. Now who would I want to see in it? How about a family fued? It's Kyle! No, it's Kurt! No, it's Kyle!
    (Had to end it with Kyle in the lead! Just for you klvalus!lol)

    Thanks for the read!
