Sure, it is every fan’s right to do whatever they want with the ticket they paid for, and I am not losing any sleep over the Bentley-and-Lamborghini-driving Stewart having to endure a sound lashing form the crowd. What has me steamed and perplexed is how selfish and ungrateful last week’s crowd came off. After all the bad noise about Stewart running away and the remainder of the series being a snoozer, we saw a sweltering 20-lap battle for THE LEAD! And yet you boo?
Let’s see how the folks down South feel about their opportunity to watch the madness unfold. Those Texans are one of a kind, so let’s get Revved Up about why they’d better be ready to rock this weekend.
How cool is it to see “The Thunder” back in the game, guys? When Reed is running on all eight cylinders, he is a joy to watch. Chad rides with attitude, and you can tell when he’s determined and truly in the mood to battle. The past two weeks have been good to Chad. They delivered with stuff that dreams and championships are made of: confidence. He was in the hunt in San Francisco and brought out the fishing pole and did some reeling at A3. I think he wants some more. I think he is ready to break out the primal concrete sledge and pound his way to a win.
Thanks for reading, see you next week.
