This is your Kobalt Tools 400 start & park report, presented by the foundation to find Todd Kluever. Remember when he fell off the face of the earth? Well, we're trying to find him and bring him back to cause havoc! Donate some of your hard-earned monies to our cause today.

Thinking About How to Spend That 43rd Place Money!
19 - Mike Bliss (They managed to get Stratosphere Casino on board, but there's a reason why I've never heard of them...)
95 - Scott Speed (Damn it Leavine Family Racing, y u no get sponsor?)

Questionable Parkmobiles
35 - Josh Wise (Where's your Blockbuster bucks now? You guys did a good job of persevering and running the full race at Phoenix. Don't let me down now.)
87 - Joe Nemechek (I've heard many people say that NEMCO doesn't plan on parking Cup events to fund Nationwide events anymore, and last Sunday was a good start. Nevertheless, I'm of the idea that "I'll believe it when I see it", so they go into the questionable category until I see them make full race efforts for at least half the season.)
98 - Michael McDowell (Again, I'll believe Parsons not wanting to park anymore when I see his car run the distance in more than half the events. Part of me wants to believe that McDowell will get his chance to shed that "McFailure" name, but another part of me thinks that Parsons is pocketing the profits from the 500 and will continue to park regularly.)

If Mike Bliss and Scott Speed qualify in the top-36 and Danica doesn't, she DNQ's.

Chance of occurrence: Higher than expected...

Not really. Las Vegas is one of her better tracks. She should make it in without a problem.

"This is more like what the Generation 5 was at the beginning," he said. "The teams hadn't figured out how to get the aero balance right. Right now, you just run single-file and you cannot get around the guy in front of you. You would have placed me in 20th place with 30 (laps) to go, I would have stayed there -- I wouldn't have moved up. It's just one of those things where track position is everything."


This is what Hamlin was fined for? I can't say I'm surprised at this point though...

There's a thread for this topic now, so continue the discussion there...

Danica should make it into the field with ease -- same with all of the other Hendrick cars -- if not, I will laugh.

I don't care how unlikely this might seem. If this new no Top 35 rule is actually making teams try in qualifying, I REALLY hope this happens.

It's not that unlikely, actually.

Scott Speed qualified 28th last week, and Mike Bliss was ahead of Danica as well last week. So the possibility is there.

Brad Keselowski said after the Sprint Unlimited that his main goal was to get a pole, and hey he got one, but due to the Casey Mears rule, he still doesn't get in the Unlimited.

Kasey Khane is driving the most obviously illegal car I've ever seen. In fact, the 48 seems to have some unfair advantage as well. Either that or the gen 6 is total bullshit.

Caution is out for Ambrose drifting off of turn 4, unless I missed something else because I'm kinda not hearing the TV right now.

Also it's just...a normal Vegas race to me so..eh.

Nope, not missing anything. Ambrose just missed the pit entrance and NASCAR used it as an excuse for one of their pseudo-phantom yellows.

Darrell Waltrip didn't really say that drivers should run their cars and not their mouths, did he? That's what I'm hearing he said. Someone please tell me that isn't what he said.

Although, to be fair, my friend did say his words were a bit muffled with his head so far up his own ass.

That's hilarious. Laughing

He would've had him in turn 3 and 4 with 5 to go, but the car didn't stick. Kenseth with great win. I agree with you though Ike. It was a decent race.

Not sure how to feel about this one. Missed 100+ laps, a bit quiet in stuff i watched until at the end. Good finish, good battle for the win.

Kenseth wins. THE MOTOR DOESN'T BLOW WAT. Held off Kahne who by far the best car in the field.

Pretty tame race.

OMG This race was actually pretty great to watch! The Gen6 cars are proving something, and so are the drivers.

Danica is such an inspiration to the nascar community, she finished 36th. Good job to Austin Dillon finsihing 21st.

I really don't understand what was so great about it. It had a pretty decent finish, and I'll admit the pit strategy got pretty interesting at times, but on the whole, it looked like just another follow-the-leader cookie-cutter race.

Surprised the TRD engine didn't blow up on him this time, but pleased nonetheless. Great win for Kenseth!

Nice win for Kenseth. Nice to see a real driver in the 20 car after a four-year absence.

Don't roll your eyes; you knew that last line was coming.

Incredible showing with the Gen6 cars. Congrats and Happy Birthday Kenseth. Kahne was the guy.

Solid race again. Good racing up front again. Newman continues to have crappy luck. Sad

Still not that convinced with the Gen6, but it's a little bit of a step-up from the COT, which is what NASCAR was hoping for. Bristol next week, which should test how well cars can run with damage hopefully Razz

Happy Birthday Matt Kenseth!

I was out while the race was going on, but I managed to catch the last fifty laps on the radio (I applaud PRN for only mentioning Danica once in that time frame). The way they were racing each other, I was thinking it was going to be Rockingham 2004 all over again. Smile
