I think i'll do Jack a favor and go drive the #97.........wha..yeah i'm awake now. It's not looking good for Jack right now, losing 1 past champion and maybe another. Is Kenseth just mad that McMurry(sp,?) is coming to Roush Racing? Hope all this doesn't affect thier racing any.

Kennseth is just mad at Mcmurray. Yeah he seemed a little ticked off about Rouch just bringing Jamie in without saying a word to anybody. There is more going on there than we will ever know. Ahh, silly season.

I have about 15 ball caps with a "5" on them that I can't ware anymore. How do you Rusty fans feel about the thought of Kurt in the number 2 car?


Son of a bitch! :pissed: Why did they have to put that pipsqueak into the 2 car. Any body else would have been better. :thumbsdown:

Yawn...road course...I only live about 3-4 hours away from Watkins Glen. I would go if; I got free tickets (start/finish line), hotel suite, food, beer, strippers, limo with a hot tub, Helicopter ride, got to be grand marshall and the flagman, they named the race "The Snaf 200", got to shove Kyle Busch down a flight of stairs, got to be a commentator (from the flag stand) so I could point out every mistake Benny Parsons makes and I get to drive a blimp. Other than that, I don't think I'm asking too much. :mrgreen:

Snafu, I take it your not a fan of road courses. :toofunny:

I've been wishing for years they'd drop the road courses and add a couple of 1/2 mile (or smaller! :yes: ) dirt tracks into the mix. I won't get my hopes up though, cause this will never happen.


:salude:


BTW, you forgot pace car driver! :laughing:

WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. -- Clifton "Coo-Coo" Marlin, whose love of auto racing eventually led to three generations of drivers, died Sunday.

Mr. Marlin was 73. He had been suffering from lung cancer.

Coo-Coo Marlin was a farmer and cattleman who raced on and off through the 1960s and 1970s. He never scored an official victory, but he derived great satisfaction in 1994 when his son Sterling won the Daytona 500.

The elder Marlin is generally considered to be the first driver from middle Tennessee to rise to national prominence in NASCAR. The Marlins live in Columbia, Tenn., and Sterling Marlin continues to live there.

Marlin was one of the sport's earliest stars, a hard-nosed racer who made his name racing around the short tracks in Tennessee and Alabama.

He became a regular at the Tennessee Fairgrounds, running against the likes of Bobby and Donnie Allison and Red Farmer.

Marlin won his first title at the Fairgrounds in 1959. He added titles in 1962, then again in 1966 and 1967. His four titles are a record at the track.

Marlin moved onto NASCAR, where he made 165 Cup starts from 1966 to 1980. He had no wins, but earned nine top-fives and 51 top-10 finishes. His series best points finish was 20th in the 1975 season.

Sterling Marlin left Watkins Glen on Thursday to be with his father, who passed away early Sunday morning. Scott Pruett will drive Marlin's No. 40 Dodge in Sunday's Sirius at the Glen.

The Marlins have asked that in lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Coo-Coo's name to the American Lung Association.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- NASCAR announced Tuesday that Kyle Busch, driver of the No. 5 Chevrolet in the Nextel Cup Series, has been fined $10,000 and placed on probation until Dec. 31 for an infraction last week at Watkins Glen International.

Busch was fined for hitting another competitor's car after the completion of the race, a violation of Section 12-4-A (actions detrimental to stock car racing) of the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series rule book.

As an added punishment, he will be shoved down a flight of stairs. Mike Helton was quoted saying; "We have just the man for the job, we just have to fly him in from Pennsylvania." Helton continued: "I am confident that the shove will be executed in a professional manner."

Busch's ears will be taped back to ensure he does not become airborne and glide to a soft landing, NASCAR officials said.

It's all on NASCAR.com, I will be gone a day...I have a flight to catch.

Ahh, you continental U.S. (and Can-a-D-ans :mrgreen: ) are spoiled, I'd have to spend like 10,000 airline miles just to git to Snafs house so I could carpool to the race... :laughing:

You are invited any time you want to come over. Just keep your "spongue" to yourself. Whatever the hell that is.

That has had to be the worst coverage of a race I have ever seen. TNT sucks.
I had to laugh when Bill Webber said Dale Jarrett is the "lucky dork." Speaking of Jarrett...NASCAR better dock his butt points for purposely taking out Newman. I am sure Harvick will have words with him later...

I hear ya! Newman's tap was an accident, but I hooted when Jarrett tried to get him back and ended up in the wall himself! Harvick looked like smoke was about to come out of his ears right after he got out of the car... either that or the volcano on his forehead was about to erupt! Couldn't happen to a nicer guy (snicker).

Did you see after the race where Jarrett didn't give a single interview, then changed right out of his fire suit and hauled heinie right out of the track? Chicken!

Jarrett knows he is in trouble. Harvick acted like a jerk...I like Harvick and all that, but my boy Truex will be there in 06... Just like Busch will be in the 2.... :umm: ...or is that 07?
