Joe Gibbs Back to Racing...Back to Winning
 
Tony Stewart takes the checkered flag and Kyle Busch finishes 2nd in Daytona as Joe Gibbs Racing revs up the 2008 NASCAR Nationwide Series

Not a bad start for JGR and Toyota eh Jsarno? ;)

(let's see how they do tomorrow at the 500)

I don't really follow the nationwide series, just Sprint. To win in the minor leagues doesn't impress me. To win when it matters does.
Although, I do admit, they are looking strong right now...the COT really helped this conversion more than I thought.

Nationwide matters. Paid my bills for a year and a half

But I hear ya, tomorrow should be fun. Yes, the COT and JGR's deep pockets and skilled engineers is definitely helping the transition. Of course, that's what I told you last year ;)

LOL...yes you did. However, the season hasn't started yet. That's like getting all excited when the Skins go 4-1 in the preseason and score the most points in preseason history (like Spurrier's first season).
I don't expect to see that kind of collapse, but you never know.

I didn't mean to belittle nationwide, just saying it's the minor leagues, Sprint cup is where it's at and where I focus my attention. I did not set the DVR to record todays event even though I have like 80 available hours of space...but I am sure as hell setting the DVR for tomorrow's race...the one where Jeff Gordon takes the checkered. :D

Fact is, I am concerned that Stewart will challenge Hendrick's this year more than I am hoping for. Gibbs racing is looking good.

So much for JG staying at home more to be with his family. I guess that was a bunch of crap to get out of coaching football. But, what he does with his time is his buisiness.

Not a bunch of crap at all. His team's headquarters are in North Carolina, and so is home. Plus his son is the President of JGR, his other son runs their motocross unit. And going to some races here and there is not the same as working 15 hour days 6-7 days a week at Redskin Park.

All good points. I'm ready for the great American race to get rollin!

Its hard now for me to root for JGR with the change to yotas. I'm the biggest JG fan. But, my race car I pulling for has to be pushin a Chevy.

But I only wish JGR the VERY BEST!

No kidding it sucks waiting all afternoon for the race to get started. It all is a show with the pre race show and all. It is probably something about thinking they can get better ratings if they do it which is BS. It is odd seeing the race finish when it is dark.

It's worked for me. I celebrated my wife's b-day today...I made sure to record it on the DVR (says start was noon here in mountain time) and I just got home and sure enough the race hasn't even started yet...as of right now they still haven't started. LOL. That's 1:45 minutes after they said it would start.

Was it possibly under a rain delay???

No, green flag was always scheduled to be around 3:30p. Just like last year
