Qualified: 20th

Finished: 9th

Race Winner: Kasey Kahne

Points After Pocono: 11th- five points out of tenth, and 178 points out of first! We are still currently in wild card position and knocking on the door of the top ten again when it comes to the Championship Chase standings! Interesting that we lost ground on tenth- but we gained ground on first. Weird.

My Mood After Pocono: Happy we over came our pit road speeding penalty for a top ten finish! Way to rally!

Writing about Pocono almost a week later is not a good idea because I can’t even find my notes- I can’t even remember what notebook I scribbled them in.  Oh well- I do remember this:

I was duly impressed that even though Tony got a pit road speeding penalty that between him and the team they were able to recover and make it into the top 10- it saved what could have been a bad points day.  Because you all know I worry about points.  Or I did…but I have a whole other post about Tony’s accident that I am in the middle of honing (I think I have post writing ADD because I three half written posts just waiting to be finished up for posting- so this will *hopefully* be a fairly prolific week).  Anyway- in addition to that I just want to share some pictures from Pocono:

I loved the GoDaddy paint scheme- except for the green stripe…it reminded me of the black Mobil One paint scheme that Tony ran at Loudon I think it was? I think I might just like black race cars. I can tell you I do NOT like black cars to own- they show every speck of dirt and EVERY little ding and scratch- but gosh do they look nice when all cleaned up:
