    Nope, it's not the first time Brian has been caught, I think it's like the 4th time.
    Jim should be good, he's been around for a while and knows the workings, very even headed guy.
    I still think Brian should have to go through the same rehab program the drivers get sent to.

    Road America is a huge track, like 4.3 miles in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin (I've been up there a few times when I lived in Indiana) beautiful track, and surround area. Last look, Bill Elliott is running mid pack, and it looks rather funny, his car has the yellow bumper since he is considered rookie to this series. I wish him well, and hope he does good, but he'll be lucky to just finish.

    congrats to the 7 car driven by Justin Allgiar for taking the checker .... very please with the Henry car that finished 10th .... Bill came in 20th, would have done better if it wasn't for a late spinout

    There were a lot of spins on the last 2 laps, people just pushing to hard on worn out tires.
    But yes, congrats to Justin Allgiar, his 4th win of the year, and it puts him 2nd overall.
    I wonder how long before we see him in Cup.
    And Bill did good, he did get pushed on the 2nd to the last lap, spun, but pulled it back together.
    He has been racing sprint cars, so he's just stepping it up a notch, more of a time filler than anything.
