1 engine problem
35th in points in Busch

Number two in points: Jimmie Heart throb
11 top five finishes

I know not all the stats are vital, but I just thought it was interesting. It will be cool to see how these two end up at the end of the series.

Also, I apologize if any of my stats are incorrect. But they looked pretty good to me...:)

Well today was certainly an interesting day. There's a lot of accusations and blame being put on differnet people about "The Big One", but really, I don't think you can blame just one person. It was a colaberation of events that caused it.

Being at Talladega you pretty much ave to expect it. At least this time everyone walked away unhurt and ready to race again luckily. Heck, even Elliott Sadler kept all 4 wheels on the ground!


Next week they head to Darlington for the first time under the lights there. If Darlington was that interesting in the day, then I can't even imagine how good it's gonna get under the lights :)

Least Favorite Driver: Gordon
How did you get interested in Nascar?: My dad got me into, but mainly at first it was just for the accidents. He'd yell for me to come and see the wreck. As I got older, I started watching a race here and there and then all the sudden it's like BOOM...I can't miss a race and I'm screaming at the TV when Junior isn't winning or jumping up and down like a madwoman when he is!!!
New points system or Old points system?: I'm not familiar with the old system, so I'd have to say new...although it does seem a little screwy.

Name: Meagan
Age: 19
City, State/Province: Harpers Ferry, WV
Favorite Driver: Jeremy Mayfield, Rusty Wallace, and Kasey Kahne
Least Favorite Driver: Jimmy Spencer, Robby Gordon, Jeff Gordon
How did you get interested in Nascar?: My dad was watching it and then all of a sudden I got interested. It has been part of my Sundays and sometimes Saturdays for the past 8 or 9 years
New points system or Old points system?: Definitely the old system. It gives the people, such as Kasey Kahne, a chance to get into the top 10 in points. Plus I think with the new system the people in the top 10 in points have targets on them, like they are going to be purposely spun out.
