    Considering how many Truck and Xfinity races he did along with the Cup series, what he's accomplished isn't much different than the 60's and 70's era, also considering he's in top tier equipment with Gibbs/Toyota racing just like Petty was with Chrysler backing. .He's the reason for the rule that Cup series drivers can enter only 5 truck and xfinity series races. There is no comparison though, I don't think he'd last 5 seasons if even that in Petty era Nascar cars,they were a lot harder to drive than the ones they do now. Kyle's 11th in all time Cup Wins but I can see him making it up to 9th but I don't think he'll surpass Dale Earnhardt sr's 76 wins.

    It is in the Onion family and comes in several colors nowadays. If you have pets plant them where they can't get to them as some Allium varieties are very toxic. Bad Guy

    Sometimes living in a suburb that allows certain farm animals has its days... Yesterday while going to check the mailbox I seen a black chicken or rooster chasing one of my neighbors into their car . By the time I got back to my place to get my camera it disappeared. We have these condos next to the apartment complex so I'm guessing it came from over there.

    I tell ya it doesn't pay to have nice vehicles. Last weekend my car was hit in a parking lot and this weekend the wife's. Of course there were no notes . At least the damage should be able to be buffed out on both cars although it sounds like something is broke behind the bumper on my car.

    I think he does some broadcast stuff for NBC, other than that I think he's enjoying retirement.

    An amateur-ish pipe bomb was found at one of the local parks last weekend luckily the bomb squad was able to defuse it. It's one of the last things you'd think about looking for around here, kind of scary. Hope no others are found and I hope they catch the person who left it there.

    He's pretty good. Best thing to happen to him was Joe Gibbs giving him the boot as that lit a fire under him. I think him, Kyle Busch and Kyle Larson are the best wheelmen in Nascar today.

    Vegas was a bit better than Atlanta but not by much though with 0 cautions it went by quick. Just love how Nascar is hyping the changes this year like it's the best thing since sliced bread .

    I used to watch streams of all the races that weren't on Fox or NBC on the computer but I stopped doing that about 2 years ago and you know what I don't miss it. If Nascar does what WWE did and starts a Streaming service like they've been talking about there will probably be a lot less races on tv when the new TV deals are brokered in 2020-21. As long as they air Daytona and Talladega and a few other races I'd probably be fine with not seeing the rest of the season too. Daytona & Talladega almost always is which is why some people watch it. Just wish they could come up with a car package that won't be so aero dependent on being in clean air. The late 90's and early 2000's cars seemed to be great aside from not being as safe as today's. Should do away with that dang splitter and go back to the flat front ends.

    Had an interesting weekend... Had to deal with an ant invasion Saturday. Guessing the neighbors in the apartment behind us had the same problem Friday as we heard a lot of noise from them that night. Had to take all the pots and pans out from the kitchen cabinet below our countertop and sprayed some organic ant repellent along the back of the cabinet and around the pipes as that was how they were getting in. Spent Sunday morning cleaning all the pots and pans to put back in the cabinet. Had 60+mph winds Sunday so that made watching tv fun as we've cut the cable cord and use an antenna. Only 1 channel came in clear and unfortunately it wasn't fox so watching the race was interesting 5 seconds at a time as could only get about 5 seconds of continuous video before it would turn pixelated for a few seconds then back and forth etc... At least our power never went out and there wasn't any tree damage here this time.

    If that's the type of racing we get to look forward to the rest of the season for bigger than 1 mile tracks there's going to be a lot of boring follow the leader races as it seemed like it was really hard to pass after the tires were worn due to the new aero package. The only action was on restarts and on pit road. I wish the bigwigs at Nascar would just find a formula that works and leave it alone for a few years instead of changing the car every year.
