Agree no 4 guys in a booth and Jeff needs to stay where he is. I just cannot stand to listen to Waltrip.

Yeah, I thought Burton would be better but he's not very good. He also gets nervous and fumbles a lot. I'd rather listen to Ward tbh.

I don't like listening to either Waltrip at this point. The boggity stuff needs to be retired. It was fine once, or one season, now it's it's annoying. I do think Gordon in the booth has helped a bit. DW has less time to talk. haha And more time to listen to guy that was just in these cars and knows a thing or three.

Default Carl Edwards Surfaces

Carl Edwards surfaces, doesn’t miss racing: ‘I’m enjoying life and it’s good’

By Jerry Bonkowski
NBC Sports
6/24/17

Cancel the APB, take his face off the milk cartons.

Carl Edwards has been found. The former NASCAR Cup star surfaced Saturday at Sonoma Raceway – representing a former sponsor at an event that had been previously scheduled.

Edwards is happy, hale and hearty.

Yet if you think that returning to a racetrack means Edwards will be getting behind the wheel of a race car once again, forget about it.

But he hasn’t lost his wicked sense of humor, either.

“I’ve been talking to a bunch of people and weighing my options — no, just kidding,” he said with a laugh, according to JeffGluck.com.

Then Edwards got serious.

“I haven’t talked to anyone and I haven’t even considered coming back,” Edwards said. “Not right now.

“I think it’s pretty clear if I really want to do something, then I would do it. But like I said in January, I would talk to Coach (Joe Gibbs) first — and I haven’t had any conversations about that.”

Gluck noted that Edwards did write a thank-you note to Gibbs recently that reiterated the opportunity to drive for Joe Gibbs Racing and that the organization supported him when he decided to leave racing after last season.

Given that racing has been part of his life for more than half his life, it was interesting to hear Edwards, who turns 38 in August, say he hasn’t kept up much with NASCAR nor watched many races since he walked away from the sport.

But he is doing some good. He’s continuing to fly medical patients to treatment in his private plane.

Saturday was the first time Edwards has been at a racetrack since Atlanta Motor Speedway in early March.

He then added, per ESPN.com, “I’m probably happier and more content [than in March],” Edwards said. “You know how change is. You make a change, and there always is good and bad and there’s uneasiness. But, man, I’m enjoying life and it’s good.”

Sadly Jimmie Johnson will be operating at a deficit this weekend due to the lawlessness that's taken over in San Francisco and a crew chief that should have know better.

Jimmie's crew chief was the victim of a break in to his car when he and his wife stopped for dinner at Fisherman's Warf, a crime that's gone unchecked and skyrocketed in that city over the last couple of years.
His laptop with all the practice notes and such was stolen. Thankfully all of the data was encrypted but still...

Truck race last night......congrats to John Hunter Nemechek for winning two in a row ( I'm a Johnny Sauter fan, though )


However, when they interview John Hunter, does his dad ( Joe Nemechek )have to be tight by his side ?


John Hunter gave excellent interviews both times and it sure looked awkward to have his dad squeezing in hoping to get interviewed at the same time.


Memo to Joe...........He isn't a child ! Let him have his own camera time !
