Isn't it painful to look at cars you owned and sold go through the Barrett Jackson auctions? Of course most of us were too broke to keep all the cars and they were, after all, "just cars." I'll get another...

By qualifying in the middle of the pack (8th), provisional #10Langdon has DSR flagship car #4Tony first thing this morning. If he gets by that one, he'll have the Kalitta flagship car and #1 qualifier #5Doug next.

#2Hight vs #3Hagan right off the bat. A big one there. The 25 year old #10Cruz vs #7JForce battle starts off in earnest as well.

#1 qualifier/#2Tanner has #1Bo, #3Greg, and #4Drew on the other side of the ladder for them to fight it out.

Also #2Hector has #1LE, #3Hector, and #4Jerry on the other side

How bout that Clay knocking off the 2-in-a-row defending World Champ!
... and the 2017 points leader out in the other TF upset of E2.

Courtney getting the first 330 of the day. Alexis just keeps on grabbin' points. Will be interesting to see how she ends up on DE's "points without the countdown" thread

Great stories! I had a little '66 Chevy II before my '67 and I miss that car too. I swear I'll get another one day too.
