Atlanta

They are dirt-trackin' it in Atlanta. It looks like everybody is chasing a loose car and it's a driver's track tonight.

I will honestly say that was actualy a race I enjoyed. They were really racing. I felt bad for "happy", but we all had to see that comming. A car that comes together after 30 laps just cant beat a car that is really really good for 20, especialy when there are only 15 left to go.

I agree. It was surprisingly fun to watch and I think the slick track was the key since it put the race in the driver's hands for once. It really didn't matter if just a team or two hit on a setup like it does at about every other track on the circuit because they all had to truly drive the car last night.

It was fun watching guys who were dominating all of a sudden start to stink it up and vice versa. It seemed like a crapshoot after each pit stop on which way they were going to go.

Now as far as the fantasy picks go, my already slim chance of making the top 10 is all but history now. I was doing OK for a while and then at the end it all fell apart with the #2 hitting the wall and the #48 breaking an axle. That pretty much summed up the luck I've had this year.

I had another horrible week as well. I went from 1st to 8th in just two weeks. Hopefully I can do better this week to stay in the top 12 for the chase.

One more race to go but he's in 14th place. Richmond should be exciting with the standings this close.

9) #39-Ryan Newman, 3138, -556 (+77)

10) #5-Mark Martin [4 wins], 3126, -568 (+72)

11) #16-Greg Biffle, 3125, -569 (+69)

12) #17-Matt Kenseth [2 wins], 3077, -617 (+20 ahead of 13th),

--------------------------------------

13) #83-Brian Vickers [1 win], 3057, 20 points out of 12th

I got to see the last half of the race and thought it was pretty good. The 29 was strong on the longer runs but just did'nt have anything for the 9 at the end.

The 42 was good as well but really ran out of time.

I did not see it as I was out eye fishing in the full moon. I'm very happy with the race as I moved up to 5th in Fantasy points.

In the past 7 weeks or so, I have gone from 22nd up to 5th.

I'm shooting for my second title if the others don't get too tough on one.

    • I've done a few things to the old camper in the last few weeks.   First I replaced the old crank jack with a new electric jack.     Then the cooling unit on my fridge went out so I ended up just replacing the 6 cu. ft 2 way fridge with a 9.9 cu. ft. residential electric only fridge.   Next order of business is new tires. Blew one out on the way to Zumbro Falls this weekend    Pretty soon everything on this camper will be brand new! 
    •   Well I never!!!    Caught one that nice!
    •   Del be fightin' with himself again. He likes that. 
    • I now boys fight Nice!!
    • Its a great house. Yep its heavy, yep the cover is bulky compared to a single layer, yep I'd buy it again. You can always pull down a zipper or 2 (front and back doors) if you get hot. For what its worth I switched from a Clam Yukon TC (normal sides with a insulated top) both are a similar size. On below zero days in the clam I would have to use a big buddy. In the otter I use a buddy and rarely turn it on high.
    • Ya, right. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA   From a car audio site....MOTORHEADS talkin'...   FlyinMiata9,
      A shorter antenna mast captures a smaller portion of a radio broadcast station's travelling radio wave. That results in reduced radio reception capability. The reduced radio reception capability may never be noticed if only listening to nearby radio broadcast stations in the city. 

      There's no overall magic of one short antenna over another. There are some that include a signal amplifier. They can at times enhance more distant radio receptions, but usually degrade other radio reception situations, often those where there are multiple strong radio signals in the reception area.

      The overall disadvantages of antenna amplifiers for car antennas tend to be far more predominant than advantages. There are some radio signal amplifiers for car antennas that automatically switch "off" when operated in a strong signal area. That can assist clearly listening to the nearby strong radio stations, but reduce the prospect of listening to any some distance away.

      There's always a prospect of the antenna you installed being defective, or not installed properly well mounted to the car's fender for a good electrical radio reception ground plane. Check to make sure the in-line Motorola connector set is fully pushed-in inserted together. 

      A simple way to test the antenna line and system is to tune in a weak AM radio station in the daytime and then grab hold of the antenna mast to detect stronger and louder reception of that weak AM radio station. Your conductive body mass adds some to the short antenna's reception capability. There may also be an initial "thump" sound as the car's radio makes an automatic adjustment of its radio reception sensitivity. If there's no dramatic change in weak AM radio reception, look for an open or shorted electrical problem. Best bet is a full length proper antenna.
    • The replacements most likely have tuning components built in.  And it isn't too big a deal anyway if you have decent signal strength.
    •     What are ya, a parrot? Someone needs to tune you...with 220 volts of inductance. *ZZZZZT*
