Quote Of The Race: “I am not sure if I calibrated my ass or not today”- Tony Stewart on his radio to crew chief Chad Johnston while talking about the handling of the car.
Ahh Auto Club Speedway (California Speedway? Fontana Speedway? Maybe we should just call you by what Tony’s crew chief Chad Johnton referred to you as and just call you “big gal”) you are a casualty of the West Coast Swing as NASCAR has called it. I use to sneak down to see you when you were in late March early April…but by bunching up the Spring “west coast” dates (sorry Phoenix- you get stuck in there even though you really are not on the coast- or close even) I really am forced to choose and I always choose Vegas. Don’t get me wrong- I am glad that you sold the grand stands out and everything but I longed to be in them- but as someone with a Monday-Friday 8-5 job I only get so much vacation a year and I can not use it all at once. Sorry Auto Club. (more…)
