Some Magical Mile Magic - Cup Making the Grade

Dennis Michelsen · Monday July 18, 2005


Pace Laps

I wonder how long it will take for Tony to get a sponsorship from a company selling mountain climbing gear?

Mike Bliss versus Jeff Gordon? Certainly not a fight for the pay-per-view circuit!

Speaking of Jeff Gordon, scanner rentals will be up 200% after fans got to hear his latest whine at NHIS!

F for Robby Gordon

When you are already down a lap, it is not the time to race in such a way as to take another driver out! Especially a team that can’t afford the repair bills!

D for DuPont Chevy Team and Jeff Gordon

Every week, it seems to be something else that hurts this team. This week, it was the brakes not going 300 miles, which is not good news for the 500 miles of Pocono this Sunday!

C for Ted Christopher

Sure he finished next to last in Cup, but just making the race was an accomplishment. Also give Ted an "A" for winning in the Modifieds.

B for The Brothers’ Busch

Finishing second and third shows that this family has been the most productive Cup family since the Labontes! Kyle is already showing that he learned from his older brothers mistakes!

A for Tony Stewart and Gibbs Racing

After starting the season slow, Gibbs Racing in general, and Tony Stewart in particular, have gotten their act together in a special way! Look for Tony to do more climbing, as he races towards another title with Joe Gibbs!

Bobby Labonte finished third and Kyle Busch finished fourth. So the Busch brothers finished second and fourth and JGR finished first and third!!!
