Pre-Race: Angie Johnson, from The Voice, belts out one hell of a National Anthem. One of the best this season.
Pretty excited to see that one of the free in-car camera's today is in Danica's car.
WE GOT THE STENICA KISS ON LIVE TV!!!!!!
Hoping for some nice foot camera action today.
Everyone is pegging Marcos Ambrose as the race winner. Don't jinx him!
Got a suspension and foot camera on Danica's car today.
Should hear multiple voices on the radios today. Some unfamiliar voices taking over some spotter duties.
Great seeing such a big crowd at Watkins Glen!
Lap 1: Will they make it through turn one? YES!
Lap 2: Ambrose is already showing his dominance.
Lap 3: This race is 90 laps. Only 8 laps longer than the Nationwide race yesterday.
Lap 4: Hard racing between teammates Johnson and Kahne!
Lap 5: Commercial break....already. Danica comes on the radio saying something about a blown tire. Possibly the 33?
Lap 6: CAUTION!!!! Commercial break. 83 stopped on the track.
Lap 7: Came back from commercial for 1:20....now back to commercial. Danica is running right behind Stenhouse...she should give him a "love tap" under caution.
Lap 8: GREEN FLAG: Ambrose still leads.
Lap 9: I really just want to see more of Boris Said....and his head.
Lap 10: Nothing exciting to report here.
Lap 12: Danica's suspension and break camera shows just how how the breaks get. They are RED HOT.
Lap 13: Gilliland hits the wall and has to make an unscheduled pit stop. Race stays green.
Lap 14: Keselowski goes for a spin but saves it. No Caution. Gordon wrecks and hits the wall. Needs a tow. Caution out.
Lap 15: Teams hit pit road. Gordon took a hard hit to the wall. The guy waving for the wrecker looks like he is doing aerobics. Lots of fluid on the track and a single file line around the wreck. Lots of cars went through Gordon's debris but any damage to their cars?
Lap 16: Harvick, Keselowski, Patrick, Stenhouse among others on pit road. Was able to see a pit stop from underneath the car thanks to the suspension and break camera.
Lap 16: "You don't have to be lonely, at farmersonly.com" #CommercialBreak
Lap 17: By this time next week, I will be back at school. HALLELUJAH!!!!
Lap 17: Gordon said the guard rails are nice and soft...maybe that's why he wanted to hug it!
Lap 19: RESTART: Ambrose still leads...shocker!
Lap 20: More Tony Stewart love on TV. Should be released from the hospital soon.
Lap 21: Boris Said and Keselowski make some contact! All good.
Lap 22: 43 is attempting to get around the 10. She gets loose.
Lap 23: I may need to be making a green flag pit stop here...oh never mind, commercial break.
Lap 25: Time to get food. Nothing exciting happening here.
Lap 27: Ambrose still leads. Green flag stops starting with Allmendinger.
Lap 29: Edwards looks weird driving a red car. Ambrose gives up the lead to hit pit road.
Lap 31: Brian Keselowski spins...not that this is really a shocker. No caution.
Lap 32: The leader board is all effed up during these staggered pit stops.
Lap 33: SHOCKER! Commercial.
Lap 34: The dog thinks I am going to share my sandwich with him....nope. CAUTION! 35 of McDowell broke a trackbar.
Lap 35: I broke down and gave the dog the end of my sandwich. Nice stop by Patrick.
Lap 36: I have a meeting at work tonight...They better feed us. Pit stop trash talking on Danica's radio. Pretty entertaining!
Lap 37: Gordon is coming back in to the race. Missing his nose. I wonder how that smells?
Lap 39: RESTART: Harvick P1 but Ambrose is right beside him. Ambrose takes the lead.
Lap 40: Kvapil and Fellows wreck. Gonzalez, Drisse, Cassill, all involved.
RED FLAG: Too much debris on track.
~Awaiting tweet from Kvapil blaming Danica for taking him out.
~Still haven't figured out how many spotters Danica has. 2? 3?
~My sunburn from last week is finally peeling. TMI?
~Just tried to pronounce Ambrose's CC's last name...that's not happening.
~There are guys giving the drivers bottles of water...it better be Dasani.
~According to the SHR Twitter page, there are only 2 drivers in the field with college degrees.
~Danica can tell its a beautiful day out because she isn't roasting. If you want an interesting conversation under a red flag, I strongly suggest Danica's radio. They talk about the strangest things.
~The two drivers with college degrees are both behind the wheel for SHR. Newman with an engineering degree and Papis wit a Political Science degree.
~Mid-Race shout out to my girl Kristina! Check us both out next week as we combine our sarcastic brilliance for a lap-by-lap experience that you won't want to miss!
~Brandon (10 spotter) is apparently scratchy. He may need to get that checked out. #NotHealthy
~This red flag gives me the chance to do a few situps...1-2-3...ok, I'm done.
~The amount of speedy-dry on the track makes it look like a sand pit.
CAUTION: Apparently the speedy-dry is now called kitty litter. Danica lines up behind Stenhouse.
Lap 43: Restart: Ambrose leads and takes off. Papis off pace.
Lap 44: Johnson is nothing but frustrated because he can't seem to pass. Papis spun on the restart.
Lap 46: I should have taken a nap during the red flag:
Lap 47: Patrick reporting that the tire pressure is down. Stays on track.
Lap 51: Harvick makes his 2nd pit stop. First was lap 16. Can he make it the rest of the way?
Lap 52: McMurray just took his hands off the wheel.....DON'T DO THAT!!!!
Lap 55: Kyle Busch sure likes his grass... literally. It's all over his grille.
Lap 56: Fellows back on track but starts smoking. Isn't this a no-smoking facility? Someone needs to remind him of that.
Lap 58: Logano hits pit road to kick off green flag stops.
Lap 60: Allmendinger slows and runs out of gas. Almirola spins into the tire barrier. Many drivers stuck on pit road. Caution is out.
Lap 62: My sarcasm is sorely lacking today.
Lap 64: Restart: Kyle Busch with the lead.
26 to go: Busch and Truex battle hard for first. Lot's of contact between the two.
24 to go: Boris Said gets turned around and backs into the tire barrier. No Caution.
22 to go: Truex's CC sounds squeaky on the radio.
19 to go: Danica trying hard to pass Newman. "I'm trying, but I'm just not fast enough."
18 to go: Burton spins, keeps it off the wall.
14 to go: Busch still leads. Has enough to get to the end but not enough for a GWC.
13 to go: CAUTION! and its commercial. Kvapil back on track and loses a tire.
11 to go: One heck of a pep-talk on the 10 radio.
10 to go: Restart: CHAOS!!!! Kahne, Earnhardt, Burton, Kenseth and others involved. Major props to the spotters on the 10 radio to get Danica through that without a scratch. And props to the other spotters as well.
9 to go: Seeing Kasey Kahne sad makes me sad #ThoseEyes
6 to go: Restart: Busch and Keselowski lead the field. Busch keeps P1.
6 to go: CAUTION! Same place as last wreck, through the S's. Ambrose's day is done. Vickers also involved.
5 to go: Still under caution, will Busch have enough fuel for the end?
4 to go: Someone is baking a cake...
3 to go: I'm blaming Amborse's wreck on everyone picking him to win. JINX!
2 to go: Restart! Busch P1 with Keselowski to his outside.
White Flag: Can Keselowski catch Busch?
Checkered Flag: Busch takes the checkers. Tony Gibson promises all of Danica's spotters a 6 pack of beer. This is Busch's third win this season.
Well...that was the last road course race of the season...except for the Nationwide Series race at Mid-Ohio next weekend. Tune In!
Be sure to check back next week for a double dose of sarcastic lap by lap coverage when I team up with Kristina Majors! You won't want to miss it :)
Until next time!
