Starting to sound manufactured for TV. They come at Langdon with a microphone and basically say "She stole your ride, how does that feel?"

Langdon is a beast, she doesn't want to start any kind of rivalry with him. Especially if it gets under Kalittas skin. Bracket and super class racers see every trick that could ever be thought of every weekend, she's not going to come up with something Langdon hasn't seen and dealt with numerous times.

Absolutely not. I like how Leah has worked her way up, but you can't play tricks on a successful super class racer, because he's probably already done them.

And we saw it on the tree, she was 2 hundredths behind but the car made up for it.

He said they fully expected her to play games.

I am pretty sure when they interviewed Torrence he mentioned something about his team having better ingredients.

Seems like they are casting for any rivalry they can get. I thought they were settling for the natural rivalry against Brittany Force.

Maybe Leah is really that bad since we mostly questioned why she was sidelined thru the years.

You are absolutely right.
But you really can't fault her for trying... she and the Don want to win too...

uh, the reason she was sidelined is because she doesn't have billionaire parents, like some of her rivals and therefore wasn't born into the ride!

A few years ago David Baca had it right about all this rivalry "stuff". When someone was talking trash (I forgot who) he said "Never mind all that - just drag your Sh-t Box up to the starting line and we'll find out what's - what." Story over.

Just 11 points out of the lead is not a bad place to be. My hats off to that whole team.
