Greg Biffle decides to put his “1st place panties on”
Last week I had this incredible gut feeling that Greg Biffle was going to do some “surprising” this weekend, and boy was my gut right. Greg Biffle raced his ass off and won his first race of the season at this weekend’s race in Louden, New Hampshire. (it took him long enough)
Greg Biffle has had a great year setting himself up for the Chase but hasn’t won a race all year. If Greg Biffle was going to win a race, this was the race to win.
The race in Louden, New Hampshire was an exciting one at that. Early in the race it looked like it was going to be all about the two drivers Jimmie Johnson and Carl Edwards… but on lap 65 Jimmie Johnson took over and Greg Biffle started charging through the pack.
Just when you think Jimmie Johnson is going to hold off Biffle, Biffle shows up knockin on his bumper screaming at the top of his lungs… “Excuse me Mr. Johnson, but I wore my “1st place panties” today and I just really need to get by you.” Jimmie Johnson tried to answer by driving with his mirrors but it’s an extremely tough thing to do when Biffle had not only the fast car and driving skills, but his green “1st place panties” on.
After the race Biffle goes on to explain he was holding off till the end and knew he had a winning car which made me a bit nervouse. It’s not every day that I go on the long shot 12th place in points solid top 5 but no win finisher so I was excited as can be for the guy.
Some racers who couldn’t find the spotlight this past weekend was Kyle Busch and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Kyle Busch had one of the worst days of the year… and ended up finishing in 34th. He started strong but lost a part early in the race that created havoc for him throughout the day. After spinning out and a 1 lap penalty for coming in the pits when the pits were closed, the 1st place in points Kyle Busch is now sitting in 8th place 70 points behind the leaders.
Dale Earnhardt Jr had a decent day but was extremely upset with the results. After leading midway through the race, the team put on a fresh set of tires that as Dale would say were [Bleepin bullbleep]” He lost 10 positions after putting those tires on and he was fuming. Here’s what he had to say over the radio during the race…. “We need a security guard over there watching those [bleeping tires], I can’t figure out why we keep [bleeping] up in the middle of all these races. Every [bleeping] time.”
I can’t blame the guy for getting upset especially after running that well. I would have thrown a few [Bleep] Bombs over the radio as well. I can’t [bleeping] stand a set of [bleeped] up tires. When I put on a pair of [bleeped] up tires on my truck that make me lose a few postions at the stop light, I get [bleeping] fired up.
Overall I’m impressed with how my pick Greg Biffle did this weekend and I’ve got an incredible feeling he’s going to continue it. It’s almost like all of NASCAR read’s my predictions prior to each race because I’m like a “picking Machine”, I’m just shocked I haven’t been hired over at hatepicks or another sports picking websites. I think it’s going to come down to Jimmie Johnson and Greg Biffle over the next 9 races… and so far Greg Biffle has Johnson’s [bleeping] number.
