apr. 29th wouldve been dale sr's 55th b-day. in honor of this jr. will drive a black car with bud, but will be done in the oldschool gm goodwrench style. this weekends race will bring back alot of good (and bad) memories.

good memories like dale sr passing about 17 cars in the final shootout laps to win his final victory in 2000.

bad memories like rusty finishing at talledega 6th, crossing the finishline airborne, upside down, and backwards thanks to a last second "bump" from the intimidator in 93 (e. irvan won in kodak #4). i have forgiven sr though, after all it was rustys car that took the air offa sr's spoiler right before his final wreck.

ironically, rustys 2nd to last victory was on what wouldve been dales 50th birthday in california a few months after he died.

i almost have to give jr the automatic emotionnal edge and advantage.

If there's a fix in NASCAR, it'll be in that day.

If there's a fix in NASCAR, it'll be in that day. lol. you mean like the 2001 july race at daytona, back when dei was getting the hot plates now reserved for team hendrick? :cool:

not my official prediction but PENSKE gets his 1st plate win in a huge chevy hotplate upset!

Penske won't be winning any plate races any time soon, unless they wreck all the contenders (Busch) or cheat on fuel mileage (Newman).

I would love nothing more than to see that car in victory lane. It'd bring back memories of seeing Big E there in victory lane.

I can't wait to see Junior's car! Black cars are soooo sharp lookin'. Sorry boys, but I'm thinkin' Jeff Gordon will win at Talladega, but I truly do hope Junior does well. I'll be really happy for him if he wins it. :smile:

Sorry boys, but I'm thinkin' Jeff Gordon will win at Talladega, as far as fantasy racing is concerned i hope you stick with that pick. jimmie is clearly the driver with better equipment, and a better team, as far as team hendrick is concerned. but i understand. i went through the phase last year thinking every week, that rusty was primed to win

the yellow numbers ruin it.

gordon does have possibly the coolest specialty paint scheme ever with the initial chromallusion car he had for the all star race. thats probably tied with dw's chrome western auto #17. i always though dale sr's 25th anniversary silver car for the all star race was cool and definitely sterling marlins silver bullet.

Are you suggesting that black and gold (yellow) don't work well together?

mgd #2? no way! lol. looks like jeffs sporting the silver/grey/yellow though

he gets a half a point for having the red and blue of the hypoclids in the pepsi logo though.

I'm not sure who I'm going to go w/yet for the fantasy league, but I will most definitely be going with a Chevy. :smile:

Then you'll have to agree that this is a cooler paint scheme...

2 wins in 21 races. you might wanna re think going with "chevy"

http://www.jayski.com/schemes/2006/cup/24calif1.jpg holy cow. thats got more going on than his jurrasic park car. thats what i always liked about penske cars. one of his pet peeves is having "clean" looking racecars. he even limits sponsor decals (which = $$$$) on the front quarterpanels.

i fogot to mention in the race a few weeks ago that i really dug gordons green nicorette paintscheme. that was pretty cool. you would think they would want to market the chromaluusion paint a little more. the green/ purple bugs bunny one looks excellent in certain light. not as cool as the initial one though.

Harvick's Ice Breakers scheme that he ran at Texas in 2004 is the coolest looking. It was a rolling hologram.

i think he wrecked that car within 20 laps of the race. cool car but doesnt step to gordons chromallusion. it looked like a giant stick of gum. :sofunny:

I would love to see one thats blue with the yellow wheels though i guess thats penskes new thing, painted rims to match the cars. they talked to ryan about it before the season and he was pretty much like "whatever the boss wants". i like it. it makes his cars stand out a little more.
