Hamlin the hack

9 posts in this topic

Hamlin was not so nice today taking out 2 top ten cars. He crached out Ruetiemen (spelling) and Amborse.

Cost me probably 60 points and also hurt ones chances at a top 12.

Ya, when you punt 2 of the top ten cars, its easier to finish a bit higher.

Paybacks are h&ll and if its in the chase, it could be costly when you may have taken the chance of getting in the chase away from a driver.

HACK.

HACK.

Must be the Gibbs' M.O.

I possibly could have had four drivers finish in the top ten if it weren't for the #11 wrecking the field to get to the front, but instead Ambrose finished 34th. They parked Gordon and Stremme for rough driving and maybe the #11 should have been parked too.

All I know is that I'm rooting hard for Biffle and Kenseth to keep that 11th and 12th spot in the chase!

Good to hear there is still a few guys in NASCAR that will "tap a few slow cars" out of the way to win a race

Tapping is one thing, driving through the guy in front of you is another. I have no problems with a guy giving a slow car the "chrome horn" if they're holding up the show, but they just plain got ran over by an impatient, whiny driver.

I see David Ragan was up to his old tricks again, and eventually piledrived Bobby Labonte right into the fence.

Hamlin was very impatient. No need to wreck a couple other drivers good days.

Yes, he should have been parke but NASCAR does not play by the same rules even in the same race.

Wouldn't that be something!!!!! smile

As far as your Fantasy racing woes guys... Good to see the win for Grammma! sorry about the fantasy results for you two. I'm guessing if/when Dale Sr did what the 11 did the tune in here would be to another melody!

Still does no excuse Hamlin. One should not drag Sr into this to try and make excuse for Hamlin.

He should have been parked like Gordon and Stremme. Stremme hit was not near as bad as Denny's.

I would guess that Hamlin may get his dues paid back to him in the final 12 when it will hurt the most.

Paybacks are h$ll.

    • East wind is the worst...!! Bad juju. Always means a storm. Gonna have an East one tomorrow......and my barometer is already headin' down, in time for the 6-8" of big snow tomorrow. Watch it plummet before a bif summer storm, or rise into the 30's on those warming, clear days. I've always watched the winds and barometer since I was a kid (got into the weather thing in "science class") , you can do better yourself than the forecasters do. It's easy and fun, IMO.
    • I guess I never associated a north wind wind lower pressure. Or a south wind with higher pressure.  Learn something new everyday
    • I watch when it drops below 29.5 Hg on down (29.0 Hg or mb; millibars) or when it swings up past 30.0 mb. That's my reference for "highs" or "lows" on my Barometer. Remember to adjust yours to your local Wx reading, they have a slot shaft in the back of the meter for that. I  love my old dial Aneroid barometer.  They last forever, too.  Mines kicking about 35 years... (That's not mine, pic is for low and high reference...)    
    • Thanks Rebel, very good answer.  I've been keeping track of the pressure for a week, now. 
    • Hey Rebel, what do you consider low and high pressure?  Perhaps a stupid question, but I just got a weather station so now I can start tracking barometric pressure. Right now the numbers don't mean much to me, been around 28-29% in the south metro the past few day and I don't know if that's low, high or middle.
    • Low pressure signals a front moving in, (Bad weather, wind may be  from the east or north) which usually puts them "on the feed", can have some hot and fast action. Likewise, a swing in the other direction, a high pressure system , (wind from the west or south) which signals clear skies and sunny weather, may do the same. The key to me, anyway, seems to be hitting it just as either front moves in. An extended low or long high may result in poor fishing. Remember the old adage, which also has to so with the pressure: "Wind from the east; fish bite the least...wind from the north , the fisherman goes not forth, wind from the south, blows the bait in the fish's mouth; wind from the west, is when the fishing is best". 
    • Those trumpers sure know how to keep things classy.
    • Is it true, the lower the pressure, the bite gets hot? Or the higher the barometric pressure the fish slow down on biting? 
    • Is that like saying "the lights are on, but nobodies  home.?
