Great night for team Penske!! Wow! That was a powerful push you gave Brad, Joey.

Ha, was day dreaming towards the end of the race. Blaney was near the front. I was thinking how great it would be if Blaney was leading and the 2 and 22 were second and third spread across the track protecting Blaney to the finish line. Then I woke up, ha, ha.

Keep up the performance 22 Team.

RE: Coke Zero 400 - Race Talk
First of all congrats to the Penske organization for the 100th win. And what better place to get it, DAYTONA !!!

Naturally, I'd of like to have seen Joey in victory lane, BUT, he can take alot of pride in knowing that he actually pushed Brad to a win !!! What a great way to help a team mate. To do it un-selfishly, and to help a team mate, is something that ALL teams should make a note of !! CONGRATS !!!!!!


I was of course watching the Daytona race, and was very happy for Roger, to have achieved the 100th win in his anniversary year.

NOW, something that I have noticed listening to what all Roger has said.

He is VERY supportive of his drivers, and I personally am glad to see his drivers get the support of their owner.

What really caught my attention, was when Roger said that, "He would have a talk with Kurt".

Mmmmm, here comes some un-necessary criticism, in my opinion.

However, his other comment about, "Three or four things that weren't his fault", would be interesting if he actually went vocal on some one and let that come out.

I'm sure that Roger could chew someone out and do a proper job. HOWEVER, I think that would be a last resort for Roger, as I feel he has a lot more class than that!!

Time will tell, and the nay sayers will all be looking through their windshield to see Joey, as he looks in his rear view to see them !!!!

Just remember that Earnhardt was "AGGRESSIVE", and his name is revered !!!!! So, I guess that time will tell.

GO PENSKE !!!!
