Tough wreck for Gordon... he looks OK, but he will get bumped from the top ten in points.

When I'm wrong, I say I wrong.

I'm done underestimating Denny Hamlin. It's not that I dislike him -- he's from just south of the James River, no more than a half hour from where I'm typing this. A rookie just isn't supposed to be able to do this stuff, but it's clear Hamlin is no ordinary rookie.

ETA: I do have to give a shout to Jeff Burton for the 9th place finish after the speeding penalty. He has more top 10s than everybody except Johnson, Kenseth, and Kahne. Yes -- Jeff Burton has finished in the top 10 more than the likes of Stewart, Junior, and even Martin have.

I couldn't believe how hard Gordon hit that wall...without the SAFER barriers he would have been messed up. That fountain of mud he kicked up was cooooooool.

A good race - minimum of JimmyJimmyJimmyJimmyJimmy comments to piss me off.
They were starting to get on my nerves about Junebug...but he faded nicely.

Good run by Tony.

Now let's tear it up at Michigan!

1. b. vickers 4th
2. k. kahne 7th
3. j. burton 9th
4. kurt bush 2nd
5. t. stewart 3rd
6. m. martin 17th
my top 5 all finished in the top 10. good day. stewart made a hell of a run. and hamlin is making bobby lABONte roll over in his "Im ready to retire" grave. great saves by riggs, hamlin, biffle, especially when it looked like their days were through.

i was wrong about this being a boring race, even though it was alot of the same old follow the leader crap. great race with lots of pit strategies being played out. plenty of contenders fell by the wayside and fought their way back.

nice to see gordon hop out of hids car and inspect the brakes. 5 years ago we would be wondering if hed be racing next weekend. that being said he may wanna consider brian vickers route. it must suck to have the credentials he has and play 3rd fiddle to johnson and bush. its wierd to say earnhardt jr. is an old man in this sport. if he dont do it soon, he never will.

and as many people who gave their predictions this week im suprised noone accurately predicted the winner or any top 5 finishing spot. kudos to deiselman and myself for being the only ones to pick hamlin and stewart in their top 5. thats gibbs power right there.

I'm really glad Jeff is going to be okay. He really slammed into the wall hard and I was hoping he wasn't seriously injured. He said he had a headache. Did they say if he may have had a mild concussion?

They said they were going to monitor him to make sure he's alright. Scary slam, that was a harder hit in a more sensitive area with Jeff today than what took Dale from us prematurely. Why did he have to be so stubborn?????!!!!! Anyway, this has to be the most interesting Pocono in awhile at least, alot of guys that finished upfront had some stupid sh*t happen and they still managed to finish in the top 10. Whoever made that remark about Junior...... Don't be a hater, be happy that he's happy with the spots he's finishing now because once the field is decided for the chase, it's gonna be ON LIKE DONKEY KONG< BROTHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait, and next year I will definitely be on the Fantasy Nascar, ya all are lucky my dsl took a shit, lol!!!!!!!

Although, you know, if Earnhardt Sr. didn't die, NASCAR wouldn't be as strict with safety, which definatley would have caused Gordon to die yesterday, and to have died ten times worse than Earnhardt (if that last sentence makes sense)

Gordon will be fine...he even had the wherewithall to credit the safer barriers right after the wreck.

My drivers finished 7,8,9,10, which was odd...but I'll take it. It also precludes me, for the second week in a row, from being a candidate for the "Assmove Trophy".
