getting testy at pocono

Today has been hectic for moi. I officially moved into my new apartment and I’m so tired I could… well… go to sleep.

As far as NASCAR goes, here’s what I know:

1.) Elliott Sadler is sticking with GEM
2.) Jeff Gordon is sticking with DuPont
3.) Every time I think of Elliott Sadler I can’t help but think of E.T. saying “Elllliiiiioooottt”

I’m off to put a bedskirt on. Oh! But one more thing, I was thinking about this the other night. So crew chief Jimmy Elledge was fired from Chip Ganassi Racing, but he’s married to Kelley Earnhardt Elledge who basically runs anything that her brother, Dale Earnhardt Jr., is doing, so do you think he’ll get a job over at JR Motorsports?

Here are some photos from the testing sessions at Pocono this week:

They’ve got great genes in that Labonte family.

I don’t know what is up with Jimmie’s hair but let’s just hope he’s “in between styles” right now.

    Yeah, not sure what is up with Jimmie’s hair. It is entertaining though.

    It is great to see the Yates cars finding some speed. They are certainly working hard with little funding.

    It’s great to see David Gilliland getting some good press. He’s been AMAZING all season long but nobody notices with the lousy T.V. coverage. Thanks for mentioning him. GO DG!!!

    I am also glad to see one of the Yates cars get mentioned. I think the media needs to start paying attention to some of the teams other than Joe Gibbs and Hendricks.
