All-Star Weekend

A no points race at a high speed track under the lights.....can't get much better than that. The entire Hendrick stable is at the front after qualifying for the feature. The qualifying for this race includes making a pit stop to change four tires and it's a miracle Jr. did that well! smile

Tony Stewart came in for his mandatory stop and when they dropped the jack on the right side he took off! He stopped, put it in reverse, and called out on the radio: "I'll be right back". grin He had a good laugh about of it.

Smoke wins!!

May want to get used to hearing that some more this year. Smoke and Wild Thing duel it out for the championship.

Is it just me or can Wild Thing really drive a race car. I know he's not the most popular driver, for various reasons. But the main reason is, he's the best out there right now. HMS has the best equipment, but 18 team has the best driver.

That was an exciting race to watch. Too bad #18's car got a bit of damage at the end, would have been fun to watch him battle stewart to the finish line.

Nice to finally get one right.

Now, that was good racing, especially at the end. Gee Mr. France...do you suppose there is something good about double file restarts in the order you are running, with the lap down cars in the back, out of the leaders way, fighting for the lucky dog? Much more exciting restarts and much better racing!

Couldn't aggree more, double file restarts like that would make for some awesome racing. It would help keep the lead car from walking away from the field when a fast 2nd place car is starting door-to-door.

If that was the one thing I could change (If you only got one thing) about nascar racing that would be it. I grew up on sat. night short track dirt racing, and that means double wide restarts in the order at caution. And if you spun the guy or caused the caution ----> to the back of the line fred.

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
