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.

    • Yes, you do have to have at least a weak cell signal and battery for the GPS to work. I know that can be challenging at times in the woods.
    •   Not sure about the new V6, but the old inline 6 was bulletproof, and had a lot of low end torque, which is a desirable feature in an off-road vehicle.       Any 1/2 ton pickup truck from the 70's and early 80's in particular, had a much better frame than a Jeep.  Body panels rust in all of them.   Not saying this is a deal-breaker for a Jeep, just something to watch for, since it is a very common problem.    
    • After doing a little looking there are a lot of options to these things. Anyone know how that new V6 compares to the in line 6? Some of the stuff I would like is the bigger tires and because I would consider putting a plow on it a lower rear end gear. The Dana 44 rear axel would be nice and would want a hard and soft top. I'm in no hurry to get one so Ill wait till the right one comes around. There are a lot of them out there that never leave the tar. More options in the later models as far as transmissions to. So it also comes down to how much I want to spend on one and how late of a model to buy. Sure don't want to spend 35K on a new one.
    • Well yeah but can you name a vehicle built for off road including any domestic pickup truck that doesn't have issues with rust. Fenders, rockers, frames etc. If you play in the mud and salt you need to maintain them. UTVs are no different. Ask yourself why Polaris would put the air filter canister intake in the rear wheel well so it is sucking in the air from the dustiest area they could possibly draw it from resulting in a 4k bill when the motor grenades.    Jeeps are fun, used ones can be had at a reasonable price but by their nature you need to be careful when you purchase because if the previous owner drove them the way they were marketed then they may have some issues.   But the aftermarket has an amazing amount of mods,upgrades and accessories to make your Jeep into anything you want and because the generally go 10 years between major design changes there are a large number of parts available if you need them.     
    • Anyfish it's still points and way better than a zero for points! Congrats on the fine eating bird.
    • Pick up a Jake morning.  Not going help the team score, if at all.  But it sure will taste good.
    • It's been very quiet in the woods the past few days.  Some gobbling this morning.
    • Nice! Way to go! Hope I'm able to get out and enjoy hunting when I'm that age.
    • Well, one of the advantages to owning a Jeep is there are always plenty of Jeep owners out there looking for parts, so if you get ahold of one with a bad frame, you could always part it out and sell the parts to another Jeep owner who believes they have a good frame....
