Racin' in Whine Country
The Racin' takes place at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma California.This track has 10 turns, is measure in kilometers and there are 110 laps which add up to 218.9 miles, or 352.21 kilometers if you prefer. There are 52 cars attempting to make the race this week.
This is the first road course for the COT (Car of Tomorrow). NASCAR has the attitude that they own this COT and they are merely allowing the the race teams to use it. Given that, there are certain areas that they will allow the teams to work with but there are other places that are a definite "don't even think about touching that" area and the teams have already been warned that the "cheaters" as the Beloved Kilo calls them will pay a stiff penalty.Today I must hang my head. As you know I decided that to help Kilo and his driver #31 Jeff Burton out I would root for #24 Jeff -Whiner- Gordon. Well, now he can be called Jeff "Cheater" Gordon. His car did not pass the inspections today. His team had touched one of those "don't even think about touching that" area. Gordon, who is the leader in points was not the only car to fail inspections today. #48 Jimmy Johnson, who is currently 3rd in points. Neither driver will be practicing today. They will find out soon if they will be allowed to practice tomorrow. They will be starting this race at 42nd and 43rd. Penalties will be placed upon these teams Monday or Tuesday. All I got to say is go Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson! Kilo I expect a big thank you.
