Here is the place for the lowdown on tennis, golf and other sport on campus. And if you consider band, debate or quiz bowl a sport, you have found your home. It is also the place to discuss schoolwide athletics.

Who also has very over rated subs!

#550017 That's Jimmy John's. Not Johnson. Both are freaky fast though.
And Johnson didn't wreck Byron. It was a mutual coming together, Jimmy came down and William rose up the track a little and they never even actually touched. William checked up when Jimmy started going sideways and got run into from behind.

#553663 Byron looking good at Daytona. Made a run for the first stage. Now running second, 50 of 160 laps in.

#553665 Bummer for Byron. Led several laps, got clipped from behind thanks to Stenhouse/Kyle Busch. Had a great run going.

Byron needs to learn how to drive


I mean Byron was leading before both wrecks.

The person holding up traffic in the Passing lane on 81 is in the Lead too.

He has a history of causing wrecks at Talladega and Daytona. If my memory is correct, he has wrecked Byron before.


Because Byron doesn’t know how to drive. Like the car who cuts in front of you when you are cruising down the road

#553675 Classless nascar drivers driving too fast! They don't race with fundamentals anymore! It's out of control how nascar officials are plotting against a college student! Outrageous i tell you!

But seriously the late, great Dale Earnhardt often "guided" cars out of his way. If they ended up wrecking so be it. Stop crying, snowflakes. :D

#553677 Hm I guess these guys don’t know what they are talking about either

Ricky was doing the best he could to give me a good push and had a great run to take the lead and the car in front of me (William Byron) just threw a late, bad block. I made the mistake of lifting instead of just driving through him and that’s my fault. I know better than that.

"I’ve got to wreck more people and then they’ll stop blocking me late and behind like that. That’s my fault. I’ll take the credit for my team and we’ll go to Talladega and we’ll wreck everybody that throws a bad block like that.”

You’ve got a list of drivers that are making moves that they’re unqualified to make and it causes big wrecks,” Keselowski said, via ESPN’s Bob Pockrass.

#553679 Stenhouse said he saw it both ways on the first crash. He admitted complete fault on the second, stating he was driving too aggressive. When you have an aggressive block with a low probability aggressive inside pass, tie goes to the leader imo.

#553745 Been a disappointing season so far. Looking like the rookie squad they are with the two tire changes, and some of the driving. Hopefully they can get it together the last few races.

Critics use to say the same thing about Earnhardt Sr. :lol:
