47 laps to go. I am drinking responsibly.

Guy in OZ told me if I see a bunch of Ozzies coming towards me chanting Oi Oi Oi , turn around and walk the other way.

I got a side bet: Ambrose over Dale Jr. Even.

Leaving the motel, going to the camp ground to commence the drinking. Race starts 3-ish I think.

My goal is to not vomit today.

Rented a race viewer thingy, has audio of the different racers in the car.

Brand name is "Kangaroo"

The stars are aligning for Ambrose.

Ambrose almost lost it, caution flag pulls in for more tires! On the radio he says the thing was flat when he pulled out of pit road. Also talking wedge problems and tie bar adjustments

May not win today.

Droning around in 36th. Car wants to go low in turns. Caution 7 spun.

A complaining car is loose in traffic

Ok when in clean air

A on radio says can't drive it- too loose wants wedge. Crew chief debating with him

Your Aussie is moving through traffic nicely now. Watched him pass 10 cars in 10 laps. No more bitching on the radio.

27 laps left

Ambrose slowed back down. Finished 36th. He was running at the end though.

He led for like 1/2 lap at the start then the car went south.

Good fun.

Lost 25 bucks betting on Ambrose. When you see him tell him he owes me big time.

Guy several rows above us actually called the cops on a guy who would not put out his ciggie. Cop came up, winded from the climb and told the smoker " don't make me come up here again" peace settled over our section.

Lots. Of back and forth chatter trying to get Ambrose's car sorted out. At one point A tells the crew chief "whatever you want mate, it's your call"

I may go to Daytona for the Febuary race (1st of the year) see if a few months of oz helps you man out.

Done drinking now. Everybody split fairly fast. Work I guess.

Final results: Ambrose got 35th, (someone must have been DQed) earned 77 thousand dollars. For 35th.
