The Pepsi 400 - Aug 16th
Mark Martin you were a class act
Congratulations on an outstanding performance and 4th place finish. We know it was tough for you to race today with your father being killed in a plane wreck just a little over a week ago, but
YOU RACED YOUR HEART OUT TODAY!
And we know Dad is proud of you
You gave us some of the best racing we have seen in a while! Mark is still 2nd in points year to date.
Mark's comments on the Pepsi 400.....(Nascar OnLine)
"We got the race we needed, but we didn't have the car to win the race unless it went green all the way," Martin said. "It just wasn't meant to be. We would have won the race if there wouldn't have been that caution (beginning on lap 179 and going to lap 184).
"I don't care if I ever win another race -- I wanted to win this one, though (Martin had dedicated the race to his father, his father's wife, and Martin's half-sister, who were killed in a plane crash last weekend). I wanted this one for them pretty bad, and I dedicate my fourth-place to them. We'll just move on and look to next week."
Congratulation to Bobby Labonte, 2nd and Dale Jarrett, 3rd, for some great racing. Jeff Burton had some tough luck with the last pit stop but made a great charge to finish 5th. Ernie Irvan, 6th, led the most laps. Congrats to King Richard Petty for the super 9th place finish by John Andretti in the 43 STP car.
Way to go Steve Parks, driving the #1 Pennzoil car, owned by Dale Earnhardt, Inc.! Started 21st and wound up with an 11th place finish. Just think what might of happened if he wouldn't have run out of gas early on in the race! That team is gettin' it together! Steve could still be in the hunt for the Rookie of the Year battle.
Ironhead started 37th and struggled with his car all day making 3 pit stops during two early caution periods. It really paid off in pit strategy allowing him to lead 3 laps of the race. Shucks! If we could of gotten a caution flag at the right time he could have been up front near the end. Earnhardt finished 18th.
YUK! Jeffy wins again. Puke!!! Yuk!!!!
With 20 laps to go he comes in for a two tire pit stop and with 8 laps to go passes Mark Martin for the lead and is 2 miles an hour faster than the rest of the field! That dog don't hunt! Not unless something funny is going on. I am tired of the Jeff show and I think the fans in the stands told the story when
Jeff got out of the car in victory lane....
Then for Jeff to express concern for Mark and the loss of his father was great BUT has anybody ever heard Jeffy one time publicly thank his parents or express gratitude to them? Nope! You would think that on a day like today when everybody was focused on the death of Mark Martins father that Jeff would have at least stopped for a moment to acknowledge his step-dad and mother who made tremendous sacrifices to enable Jeff to succeed! After all NASCAR is about Family!
No doubt the 24 team has it together but maybe the "gray areas" of the rule book that Ray's been working in need a closer look by NASCAR. "I want people to know that we don't cheat, we just take advantage of the gray area of the rule book -- and that's not really legal, but not really illegal, either.''--Ray Evernham
Even Dale Jarrett in a post race interview on MRN said "It
was really fun racing Bobby and Mark,
but that 24 bunch .... seems to out smart us or SOMETHING every time."
"Everybody had Gordon beat," Todd Parrott, Dale
Jarrett's crew chief, remarked, "and then they put the miracle tires on. That must
be the same set they put on at Charlotte."
from Tony Johns article at SpeedWorld
When asked by commentators, "Where did you come from",
Jeffy, himself said, "I don't know "(yeah,
right). "I didn't deserve this". And Nascar OnLine quotes Jeff as
saying, "But the car just seemed to run better. I don't know. You can call me
Houdini today because there was something magic out there. It was a miracle. The car came
to life for 17 laps. I just couldn't believe it."
Jeffy, you really expect us to believe you are Houdini!! YUK!! Maybe Ray is with the way he "fixes" the car!
And in the word of Jeff Burton after the conclusion of the race (RPM2nite):
"ahh, it's just ridiculous that he won that race."

The Pepsi 200 - Aug 15th
Jr gets another top 5 finish!
Way to go Dale Jr! He finished 5th and is still in the lead by 38 points for the Championship Battle with only 9 races left in the season. Go get that Championship!
Jeff Burton (a Winston Cup regular) wins the Pepsi 200. Jeff we really appreciated your kind words about Mark Martin and the death of his Father, step Mother, and step Sister after winning today. Mark Martin finished 6th and had a great run. Look for him to be tough tomorrow in the Winston Cup race. This race was a record for the Busch Grand National Division as the race was completed with no caution flags and all 43 cars that entered the race, finished the race.
The Dominator, is definitely a chip-off-the-Intimidator-block!
