The lucky dog goes to the first driver in the running order who is one lap down. When the leaders put Jeff a lap down, he was able to get in line and stay close to the leaders. Robby was still at the back of the pack. So, therefore, Jeff got the lucky dog and not Robby. Now, had Robby been running with the leaders when they put Jeff a lap down, and was able to get by Jeff before the caution came out, then Robby would have gotten the lucky dog.
Life is too short to hate in my book. I think what comes around- goes around. Things will work out if we are patient. Besides, if we didn't have the "bad boys", we could never have our good guys. It gives us an extra reason to cheer when we beat him. Have a great week! On to California!!
Hi, hope you had a happy Valentine's, Joan! That sounds like a great job! I was working at the company that merged with my present company back in the day and worked at night and loved it! Nice of your friend to do that for you!
Joan, you opened a can of worms with Harvick, I just saw the same thing I saw when Mark Martin(my favorite driver) was cheated out of his win by Harvick and NASCAR. I was not happy when he won this one either, I like seeing someone different winning at least once in a while. Sorry to hear about your bronchitis, I have been through that, be close to a bathroom when you start coughing hard. (LOL) Hope you are better soon! Take care. Kathie
Hey Joan! Don't worry over how he got in, be glad he did and cheer him on to the end!! I am anxious to see how the deal with Toyota will work out for him. Sending best wishes his way as always!
Weather this winter here has been mild. Thank goodness. It is supposed to be "warm" for the next week and I am thrilled! Take care!
I am so jealous about your snow! When we have gotten it the last few years, we have only seen 1-4 inches. Never enough to keep me out of work for a day---they never close. Be careful on those buses, sometimes the water stays on the floors and stairs and it's easy to slip or pick your foot up and splash your clothes.
Hi, Joan! I have fallen three times on ice, once getting out of my Explorer, all I did was put one foot partially on the ground, and down I went, the other two were on stairs. But I was lucky, nothing broken. That's great about "brilliant!" from Rob Harris. I just hope that RG can ride his "big Mo" into Daytona. I really want to see him succeed in a big way with Toyota.
If I was here to bash RG I'm pretty sure I would have done it quite some time ago. I actually just dropped in to give a pat on the back to the people who picked up the ball after the uprising debacle. It take a tremendous amount of work and I just wanted TOG and his admin staff to know what a remarkable job they are doing. The are helping to fulfill the vision.
I've been telling RG for years it's not the results... it is the stories we get to tell that are important because who seriously cares if Jimmie Johnson just won his eighteenth consecutive title...Stories win every time.
Good to hear from you again! Hope you're having a wonderful new year.
Been very busy here. I am a full time life guard, I coach for the special olympics, and I am taking EMT classes while volunteering at the Mooresville Fire Department. I am loving every moment of it though!
Hope all finds you well and I am looking forward to this season of NASCAR. I think Robby and the team will have a very good year with Toyota!
I know he made it to the finish of the timed special. I have not heard word if he has made it back to the bivouac or not, but it appears as though he has made it to the bivouac per the Posi page on Dakar.com. It shows him arriving at 16:41 (4:41pm) local time.
