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

14) #18-Kyle Busch [4 wins], 3040, -37

15) #00-David Reutimann [1 win] 2945, -132

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.

    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..read Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!    
    • Running and gunning!   Congrats!
    • Nice!  WTG!
    • I've got a bunch of Humminbird Snapshots of my DI and SI stuff. Many people pay for the technology and don't know what they are looking for. Study these shots and tell me what you think you see.
