    well at least it wasn't that stupid Kyle Busch or Kurt! I was pulling for Jr. or Stewart. Kyle's a little cry baby so I never liked him in the first place! :D

    I am happy with how that race went. A great start to the year for the 43 team. Awesome run by them.

    Chrysler is actually looking at dismantling and closing the MOPAR brand, along with selling the Jeep brand. So we'll see how all that plays out. When I was aware that K&N Air Filters are recalling a specific air filter for Dodge Durango's with both the K&N name and the Mopar name, and the Mopar name cost nearly 40% more, I now no longer use Mopar branded stuff, haha.

    But congrats to DODGE, Woohoo! I was gonna be p!$$3d if Toyota won!

    Heck yeah man.. 7 dodges in the top 11.. Newman came out of no where.. awesome race, reminded me alot like the early 90's mid race spread out then it comes down to a shootout.. oh and how bout Evernham 6th, 7th, and 8th woot.

    Yeah was hoping Kasey would get up there, but he and JR got stuck behind Kyle Busch's idiot but while he was trying to give the spot back after going below yellow.. still a fantastic race by Kasey had a great save in there to.

    Very happy for Newman. Him and Kenseth are two guys that are always class acts about on track deals and never putting the blame on somebody else. Great to see another first time winner and a deserved one at that.

    Kyle Busch drives like we do in the video game. He's all OVER the place which is exciting but at the same time stupid. I was glad he didn't wind up winning since he went below the yellow like he did.

    WOO NEWMAN!

    Robby Gordon doesn't drive for Evernham Motorsports, he just is in a Technical Alliance where he uses engine maybe a car or two!

    Couple of things I was rooting for. First and for most we all know toyotas gona win this season. I jsut didn't want it to be in the 50th anni for the great american race. Just wouldn't seem right.

    No one from Hendrix won so I was happy with the race. Really exciting finish, except every time the racing got good in the final 30 laps there was a caution.

    I was surprised that Ryan Newman won, didn't see that one coming., I thought for sure it was going to be Tony Stewart; but when you have teammates on the same page, this is what happens!!! and, I , too, am glad that Kyle Busch didn't win....he is a crybaby!!! But, the last couple of laps of the race is always the best part of it, the rush of adrenaline is moving so fast......
