NASCAR Sprint Cup round 31: Lowes (Charlotte) Motor Speedway (Chase race 5)

Thankfully, this the last time we will need to refer to Charlotte Motorspeedway as Lowes MS.

Going to be a chilly weekend as cold air from Canada has moved in on the Southeast. Talking of snow in the higher elevations.

Practice 1:
JPM bumped into Jeff Burton and damage he front; needs repairs.
Mike Bliss and Ambrose at the top of the charts at 704 pm EST. 188 and change.

ENTRY LIST/q'ing ORDER
looks like they've saved the best for last in Q'ing

Saturday night racing. should be good.
i'll be in the Charlotte area this weekend but i couldn't convince my cousin to have her wedding in the infield of Lowe's MS.

JJ on the pole at Lowes...what a surprise!
the old man on the front row with him.
Kahne, Kennseth and Stewart round out the top 5.

JJ hasn't won though at Charlotte since they repaved the track.

That said, JJ had an awesome qualifying run yesterday. The fastest of the year, at any track.

I still expect Juan to be fighting it in front of the pack and making it interesting.

This is the race where the famous "Big one" is also expected right?

Well, I just hope Juan doesn't end up pilled up in any of those demolition derby type of messes.

C'mon Juan!!!

The old man is no pushover at Charlotte either. Unfortunately I can't watch this race as I will be watching my football team get pounded into the ground.

You're a couple of weeks too early - the race you are thinking of is the restrictor plate race at Talladega on the 1st of November

That said you can never tell what the double file restarts might have in store for us, as they have produced some pile-ups on the intermediate tracks that aren't much different from what we're used to seeing at the plate tracks.

Here's when the top 35 fails, because the 3 slowest cars get to race by owner's points and PCPs. To make things worse for Denny Hamlin, the car that he was sponsoring failed to qualify; karma?

i believe Mark's first start was at Charlotte and he has had some good success there. i think we should expect anything to happen with a cold fast track tomorrow. it is chilly up here!

and as for the big one, i can recall a few pile ups there, most of them during the Winston/AllStar deal, but CMS is fast and can be unpredictable.

There was quite a monster shunt there in the 600 in 2007 IIRC. Jeff Gordon took a hell of a hit, thought he was in serious trouble at the time.

i believe i recall that but there seems to be quite a few shunts at tracks a mile and 1/2 long and longer; too many to remember all of them.

Did JPM mess up Q, or has he been off the pace. He has ruined it, with 1-2 1-2 on the grid it was looking intense.

I blame the new livery. It is slowing him down.

Pace doesn't seem all that really. Shame, I was optimistic of a good result. My birthday is ruined hehe.

Well have a happy birthday any way.

I'm sure Juan will have a special surprise for you - and of course to all of us who will get to partake on his birthday gift to you.

Bad brake for Juancho.

But like he says: "That's racin'"

Bring on the next one.
