congrats to JDDRE on the win, I had a typical Bristol finish; somehow still in the overall lead.

next week: Fontucky! I might make it to the race. we shall see.

Yep and within the season there are 3 segments (Spring, Summer, & Playoffs) so you can still win a battle if the war is lost.

While that may make you feel a little better, we're not running that way, correct? [All races count, none dropped and the segments are "irrelevant" to us I believe (?) ]

Cheers,
Ian

Short answer, yes you are correct.

Long answer, yes but it does give one a chance to recapture some pride if they have a bad segment or two and allows for any late entrants to have something to aim for so I don't think it is completely "irrelevant" to the spirit of the contest.

I was behind by 300 points last season, and I won it.

Winning a 'segment' means nothing, really, just keep at it, make sure you don't 'burn' a hot driver on silly starts and end up with zero starts left on a hot driver with 10 races to go.
I think I burned two on Kasey Kahne, so he's on the bench for awhile now.

You guys lost me, and I'm too f---ing stupid and tired to figure it out.
I said I was behind by 300 last year and I won it, if that's not being an OPTIMIST then I give up.

I assume it was a freebie edition sponsored/provided by the battery folks because there is no bar code on the back cover. I bought it at Goodwill...they scammed me!

I'm a bit concerned it might focus a tad too much on religious references for me given that Gibbs is a devout Christian and I'm more along the lines of agnostic Christian.

agnostic Christian?
