I am thinking Joey's got a great shot at a top 15 finish this weekend at Pocono, and he will continue his momentum from Indy. I don't think I will be making the race this Sunday though... College is coming up at the end of August, so I need to save money to buy books, clothes, etc. Maybe I will go to a qualifying session or a practice session.

Bring your books with you! go to the race!! lol. I think Joey has a great shot too. Pocano is similar to Indy plus Joey had a top 15 run going last time but had to pit for gas late.

Aw darn, that stinks, Jean. Atleast you got a chance to go to the last race. How much were tickets for the last race that you went to?

In 2006 + 2007 I went with my friend Greg and his Dad for, and both years it cost us $250. I didn't go in 2008. And this year when I went, it cost me $95 since I went with a lower ticket package instead.

$95 sounds pretty reasonable. When I went to look for tickets to the NHMS race they were around $100 as well.

RE: Sunoco Red Cross Pennsylvania 500 - August 2, 2009 - Race Talk
Tickets for Michigan when i went in 2006,2007 and 2008 where about 85 for the grandstands and 65 for turn 4 area. The Nationwide tickets are 50, truck tickets were 25 or 30 and anything else like Qualifying,Pratice,Arca races etc are 15. If you arrive half way through anything tickets are usually reduced for the races and in case of the q sessions and the practices they will most likely just let you walk right in.

Well unfortunately qualifying has been rained out, so this means Joey will start from the 19th position this Sunday. He started 23rd last time here at Pocono.

Weather is Sunny for Saturday, so they will definitely get practice time on the track, but for the race on Sunday... 40% Chance of Thunderstorms All day pretty much Sad

Wow that sucks. Hopefully it holds off long enough and the race fits somewhere in that 40% chance of no rain.

I'm so upset that there is a rain delay for the race until tomorrow at noon. I'm working :/ I guess I'll just have to keep checking out the live leader board on NASCAR.com.
