Tidbits for Texas


3 laps to go
1 restart
1 batch of contaminated racing fuel, preferably by water that’s brown in color
“More than two and less than 43” fuel cells carrying the contaminants
1 stumbling engine in the leader’s car
Add aggressive Chase drivers to spice

In an intermediate oval on high heat, mix ingredients thoroughly, sit back and watch all hell break loose.

On a serious note ...

AJ Allmendinger, the rookie driver of Red Bull Racing Team’s No. 84, earned his best finish of 15th in the Oct. 13 Nextel Cup race at Lowe’s Motor Speedway. Two weeks later, he ran 16th at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

The youngest sister in the family of 1.5-mile, double-dogleg tracks is Texas Motor Speedway. The last time Allmendinger visited there, looming tornadoes and 60-mph winds stripped the No. 84 Red Bull Toyota of its chance to qualify. NASCAR nixed the session, owner points set the lineup and AJ and Co. were sent packing.

Rain or threatening weather, however, wouldn’t send Allmendinger home this weekend. The No. 84’s 44th-place position in owner points and 33 qualifying attempts have the car safely locked in even if the Fujita Scale enters the equation.

Teammate Brian Vickers, a pole winner last season at Texas, was one of the lucky few to sneak into the show based on his 2006 victory at Talladega. He finished 14th. At Atlanta, Vickers and the No. 83 regained some lost momentum with a 10th-place showing — the team’s fifth top 10.

A.J. was 2nd fastest in practice, and not all that far off of Gordon's speed, who fas 1st!! Brian was 13th and quite consistent; both go out late in qualifying, AJ actually last to go out, but....can you say "Pole Contenders"?

I don't know if that's a stretch or not, all I can say is, they back those times up on their runs, and making it in should not be an issue. Go TRB!!! :)

Actually, AJ goes out to qualify 4th - not last - and BV goes out 43rd.

I've checked the posted qualifying order on 2 websites and both showed AJ to go out last and BV to go out 41st. Does anyone know why this was changed? As always, the ESPN2 reports have said nothing about any qual order changes. Go get 'em boys!

Does anyone know why AJ was posted to go out last for qualifying but went out 4th? Also, BV was set to go 41st but went 42nd. In any case, good qualifying for TRB. Go get 'em boys!
