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.

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

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

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.

    • Moved my fan today  cut heat up time in half very noticeable improvement 
    • Well, she's still right, you know..
    • Went out pheasant hunting today and ran into a trapper setting 330s along a creek for beaver .  I'm not much into trapping but know how these things work, and after having a civilized conversation with him his were all in the water and he let know where they were located so at least the pooch wouldn't get his leg caught in it. don't feel bad, he hasn't caught much either . 
    • That may be, but it sounds a lot like "I didn't get a job" butthurt.  That grifter would be singing the praises of Trump's genius if she was on the payroll.   Eh, why not?  When they aren't taking credit for things they had nothing to do with, they are taking blame for things they had nothing to do with. Pence is still the governor of Indiana
    • sounds like from animals that eat meat. 
    • Huh?  Sorry,  I should have known better.
    • Great idea, have you looked into what it would take? 
    • I think what fish meant was it might not hurt to allow more than 60 days for a season in states like MN.   When the birds are late we can still have a chance at the northern birds.  If freeze up and the flights are early, the longer season won't matter.  There won't be much if anything to shoot.   I get what you're saying about lengthening the gap, but that's a roll of the dice since we have little chance of knowing when freeze up will get those late birds moving.  How long do you make the gap?   After a year in my new area of the state I can adjust my expectations and chase more wisely next year.  This year I was anticipating much better.  I think that's the worst part - the big push being the big let down.
    • Wool socks are a must, they insulate even if wet. Cotton socks in any warm boot will make your feet cold. The warmth of the boot while you are active make your feet sweat. I have the LaCross Iceman from a couple decades ago, still no need to go buy something different.
    • Some wild meat can have trichinosis.  Domestic pork no longer has it. I'm pretty sure that venison doesn't have a parasite issue.
