Did I see Bobby And Terry Labonte out there? How old is TB now?
56 now. One of the few drivers available with a past champions provisional, so he is still in demand. Sad to see him run around with substandard equipment though.

Yep, but it looks like slingshottin' out of the last corner may not work with these new cars, at least not in restrictor plate races.

Edit: Hmmmmm . . . . . maybe what's needed is an iris-y thingamabob instead of a fixed-size-orifice plate and a button so that
the driver could "open 'er up" a few times per race, for only a few seconds per actuation, and . . . . . . . . . . .

Good race. It's crazy how the inside line wasn't really working all week and then right at the end Jr. leads a train to the inside and dumps 2nd and 3rd car back into the pack.

Good run by Patrick, brought it home with good points. Surprised Gorden finished 20th, thought he was in decent position going into the last pit stops.

Clean race overall, I thought. Nobody got crazy.

Yeah good on JJ Yeley. I was pretty spectacular in open wheel. Surprised his success in NASCAR has been so tepid.
