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.

Great race to watch, I was telling the guys I was with to keep a eye on that 14 car.

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.

    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one.
