    Too bad Bob had to go out in a pedal-fest but, yeah, good PR when teams help each other.

    Bob's #8 in Powerade points standings after this race.

    Good to see Bob qualify on a consistent basis as he started last year behind the 8-ball with no testing and failed to make quiet a few shows. I believe it's just a matter of time before he get's that Wally for the UPS TFer. I've wondered if Bob should snatch up Rahn Tobler but Jim Dupuy seems to be having this car come around so why muck up the setup now when it's starting to pay off.

    Also great job by TJ and everyone at Snake racing. To see Larry Dixon go 2 fer means alot as we've not seen this since the Dick Lahaie days. Donnie Bender starting to hit his stride as crew chief and these guys are a serious threat to take it all IMO. In my book, Austin Coil, Alan Johnson and Lahaie are the greatest crew chiefs but I hear some suggest that Donnie will get to that level one day also.
