Chicagoland...Cup Race..

Well, I qualified second for the Tropicana 400 and thought it was going to be a great day. The Dodge Dealers #9 was running awesome. I couldn't ask for a more awesome car. When the race started we were not as strong as Gordon, but quickly changed that. We led a few laps and probably was gaining some very good points. During one of the cautions I didn't change all 4 tires just because I wanted track position. We didn't get the best restart probably because of the old tires, but right as I switching gears or something Tony Stewart got into the back of me. Now I don't know for sure what happened. I need to examine the tapes a little more, but I know he hit us from behind and we went spinning and got into a bunch of other cars which I felt bad about. I am fine after that crash for anyone who might have been concerened. I'm not placing fault on Stewart, but he definitely hasn't become one of my favorites lately. I know everyone knows a fight broke out between my crew and Tony's crew, but according to my crew chief Tommy Baldwin he didn't start it. He went down there to talk to Greg Zippadelli to rant about Tony but he never even got the chance. It was a bad thing to have happen, but I was nowhere near involved. I was still talking to reporters. I haven't even talked to Tony yet, and I don't even know if I will. I know I did nothing wrong per say, but I'm sure NASCAR will have something to say about it. Ray Evernham and all the guys on both my team and Jeremy's team are standing strong. I'm glad we have this weekend off. I definitely need a little bit of a break to refresh myself. Hope everyone has a great off weekend and I'll see you all in Loudon.

Glad you're okay, Kasey! That looked like a hard lick! You take it easy during this off-weekend and get some of that relaxing in that you deserve.

That was pretty disappointing for you. You looked pretty racy out there before that whole deal went down. I don't really know what happened either. You know more than I do about that whole mess. If you recall, I was actually in front of all y'all when things broke loose in the rearview. I guess I'll see the tapes tomorrow when I get in the studio for Inside Nextel Cup. Just a bad deal for you, and you know, I don't think anyone's blaming you for what happened between the crews. I know less about that than I know about the wreck on the track. All I know is that it wasn't pretty.

I don't know if you're up to hearing this right now, but the NAPA Chevy finished 9th. The reason I'm telling you this is so that, while you're resting after the disappointment you went through today, you can have some Domino's pizza and get five dollars off. Just ask for the Waltrip Family Special. Get yourself some Coke too - I know that helps me feel better.

Hope you get to enjoy your time off this week. I'll see you at New Hampshire, okay buddy? You take care!

you people need a life... that's not this.
NASCAR roleplaying? This is one of the strangest things I've seen online. But it's kind of neat. It's good for people to find creative ways to enjoy themselves. :)
