The rear end was looking like it was snapping loose when i was watching last night.
Ronnenfalk has been doing pretty damn well.

Heís at a slight disadvantage not having danny and matt there to help with setup, plus joe is a huge help too. Having your guys on the ground watching your cars reactions is helpful. Itís gonna be a challenge for sure.

Those compounds would probably be more ideal....but control tires and where/when the tires were tested leave a lot to be desired.

True. I'll never count him out though. He always seems to pull one out at the end.

Please don’t let qualifying decide the winner. We wanna see a heads up race!!!!

When did Maifield take up acting? That soccer fall (more like dive) was borderline terrible!
