Michigan - This is the week!
« on: June 07, 2019, 05:16:56 pm »

This is the week that the rules package will work and give us some tight, competitive racing. 

I mean, I don't believe a word of that, but it sounds good.

Harvick topped final practice, SHR cars are leading the 10-lap averages.  Maybe Ford will get a win at the big track (the percentages are in my favor for that prediction).

Biffle just won the truck race.  I'm thinking this will be a good weekend of wat? finishes.

That was a good race with the trucks last night. Lot of loose trucks slipping and sliding as they were pushing them to the limits.

It was a Triple Truck race.  Lots to be gained by winning.

Hah, they went all the way around the track.  Race time tomorrow afternoon, 4:00 central.

Going single-file so far, but staying close together after restarts.

Harvick had a vibration up front, and it got worse after a tire change.  Just got his lap back after a caution.  Interesting for him to go from having a leading car in practice to having a vibration now in the race.

Harvick and Logano have strong cars.  Truex, Kurt Busch, and Suarez are running right with them with 50 to go.

40 to go and now the top 3 cars are a full second ahead of the pack.  Long distance at this track.

DW getting his Kyle love in before he retires.  Kyle is running 8th with 38 to go and DW acting like he'll catch them if it stays green.

Call it premeditated, but if I ever meet Rodney Childers I am going to murder him.  Harvick pitted from 2nd place and took 4 tires.  The other fast cars up front took 2 tires.  Harvick came out of the pit sequence in 10th with 15 laps to go.  If this goes green he's out of the running.

Logano, Kurt, Truex.  Harvick finished 7th because his crew chief is an idiot once the race starts.

Just caught the last restart.  Other than Harvick's pit issues, how was the rest of the race?

Had some entertaining moments, much more than many races this year.  The draft was huge and there was good racing in the field.  But like every other race, only a couple of cars were true contenders.  Logano had the fastest car all day.

Let's do it again.  Erik Jones, Bowman, and Harvick led practice. 

Austin Dillon and Hemric both had their qualifying runs disqualified due to rules infractions regarding the alternators - will start at the rear.

Trucks start in 5 minutes.

A few of them are already going into the traction compound.  Something the trucks didn't really use much yesterday.

That traction compound just help save the #27 from crashing.

Truex started at the rear, and is trying to win Stage 1 after a fuel-only stop. 

Doesn't look like the earlier flat right front tire hurt Harvick too much.  Looked like he just hit debris and got a puncture.

Hamlin had 4 new tires.  Truex had 0 new tires.  Truex lost the lead in traffic, got the lead back, and then held Hamlin off to win the stage.  Impressive.

On a restart with 1 to go in Stage 2, Kyle just took the lead from Truex to win the stage. 

Dillon, Hemric, Almirola all damaged in a wreck at the end of Stage 2.  Dillon just took a long slide through the grass, so his car should be fine to continue on to his 15th-place finish today.

did Almirola just slide up or try and stuff his car in a spot that wasn't there...?

With 30 to go, Penske has the top 3 spots.  Harvick is in 4th, so Ford execs have to be happy right now.

I switched to the Cards game after the second stage. What happened to the 19 this stage? He was dominant the whole time I was watching

Harvick ruined that.  Harvick up to 2nd and Hamlin takes 4th from Blaney.

Fuel is still an issue.

Him and Hamlin both.  It's surprising for them to go backwards at this point in the race.  I muted the tv for awhile to get some work done so if something happened to the 19 I missed it.

There.... saying the car's too tight.

Dang.... let's keep going green.  Harvick has checked out on Logano and has open track in front.

All the other Fords up front are concerned with fuel but Childers is telling Harvick he's got gas to spare.

Hamlin 1.5 seconds behind the leader with less than 1.5 laps to go.  NBC telling us how he can still catch and beat the leader.  Kevin Harvick "held him off". 

At least they stopped with the "crossover move!" announcements.
