Ok, so we’re 10 laps in. I’ll catch you up. Red car, red car, red car… driving around in circles. There, you’re caught up.
Seems an odd time to be running a race. For some reason I thought this was a night race, so I was off enjoying a lovely fall day at the market in preparation for Thanksgiving (yes, we canucks celebrate it this weekend) Just made it home on time.
Lap 17: ooooh… FROchitti washes up and drops like a stone to 3rd, allowing Briscoe to get by for 2nd. Dixon leads.
LOL… oh Bob… Danica hasn’t run the Blue/black livery since before Indy. Pay attention dude.
Lap 23: much discussion about Danica wasting her overtake button pushes.
commercial (lets see what the radio guys are talking about… oh suprise… Danica…)
Lap 33: back. talking about pit stops, which may or may not be coming up. . L
Lap 44: pit stops have begun.
hmmmm… my feed got all wack and delayed.
Lap 54: Briscoe and Dixon are battling up front, Dario about 4 car lengths behind.
Field is now lapped up to 8th position. :shakes head:
Lap 62? Parko is sitting on pitlane. Brakes are smoking like mad. oops, strike that, they’re on fire. Thanks for coming out. See you in 2010.
Lap 68: Briscoe is now in the lead, and traversing through traffic. Come on Ryan!!!
oooh! someone is “working the tools” DRINK!
(for those that care, the beer of the race, other than myself, har har, is Ephemere)
oh Bob… so much excitement for Dixon lapping Helio… *snicker* “Oh Bob” is my drinking game today fyi
Lap 84/200: Briscoe is lapping the field left right and centre, and very very high. Probably a little too high for hte captain’s liking.
I’m snacking on prosciutto and figs… too fancy for race day?
Lap 97: Briscoe and Dixon both on pitlane. Briscoe out first.
Dario stays out a couple of more laps then comes in.
Lap 101: Briscoe retains the lead. Ok… must find someone good at stats to break it down for me.
Apparently Versus is putting in as many commercials as they can today. *switches to radio* hey did you know Justin Wilson is in this race?
Lap 108: Dixon back out front. Nice battle up front. Dixon is on rails since the last pitstop.
Lap 112: Dixon pulling away bigtime.
Lap 118: Do, Dixxy and Briscoe will likely have to pit again. Dashley may not have to… hmmm…
Lap 124: Briscoe blows by Dixon! Sweet!! atta boy!
Lap 132: Rooting for Ryan. Come on kiddo! get those bonus points!
Lap 144: Briscoe and Dixon on pitlane. Briscoe out first again!
Lap 147: much talk of Dashley and fuel strategy.
Lap 148: Oh Bob! *drinks* way to jinx the race dude!
*side note* being set up in the kitchen is convenient for refills… just sayin…
OH! LOL! Danica and Wheldon the rematch! Panther crew releases Danny boy into the path of the Princess and spins her around on pitlane.
Danica’s day is probably done.
Holy blinding glare coming down pitlane. Again I reiterate, what a stupid time to have a race.
Lap: 161/200: 39 to go….
Lap 167/200: Briscoe now has the laps lead bonus. But Dashley is toiling around 18 seconds behind saving fuel like a bandit. Great. A fuel strategy win/championship coming up. Gross.
I’d rather see drivers go balls to the wall and win it on the track and on merit.
I wonder how Dixon feels to have been sacrificed in favour of Dashley.
Dixon and Dashley both have to pit
Well there ya go. This just sums up the season. Red. Predictable. Fuel saving. Maybe next year the focus will be on racing.
