I like NASCAR on FOX, but the local FOX station interrupting the race to repeat the weather over and over again drives me up the wall. I just flipped over to WCCO and they have a scrolling bar on the bottom of the screen with the weather updates, why not FOX? Hit the bricks Ian, let's get this race started.

Alright Ian, I think we can do away with the radar loop on the screen so we can get back to HD again.

Caught the last part of the race. Getting tired of Budwieser, doesn't Michelob sponser a car? J/K Gotta tip my hat to tony stewert for hanging on to the car after blowing a tire and to Dale JR. for driving a wreck to a fifth place finish. And who was that girl to the left of Kasey while Fox interviewed him right after the race? Anyone have her number? I wish.

I was waiting for an interview with stewart but he must have not cooled down from the Goodyear tire failure yet. Good race, too bad that 2 of my drivers ended up not finishing. Good to see Kasey win another race.

I think Tony really wants to get back into a Chevy. He will mind his manners till he gets the ride he wants. Either that or he just got old all of a sudden. =)

Kasey ran a great race - but fortunes really turned his way in the last 6 laps or so.

He seems to be one of the good guys - I'm glad he won.

Dale Jr. is tough as nails to come back and get top 5 after he ripped that car up. Gutty race.....

Stewart really does?

You mean equalling as many top 5s (4) at this point in the season.. as all of last season isnt an improvement?

I count 11 top 5's with 3 wins last year. Don't know where 4 came from? He definatly wants to be in a Chevy again, it is no secret!

My bad. I was looking at the wrong standings. He still is not in bad shape this year.

I let my little girl stay up to watch the end. She got all teary eyed when tony "broke a tire". But when she realized her second favorite driver was going to win the smiles came back out. Talking a 4 year old down is harder than one might think.

Ya you will seldom see interviews with him when he does bad or has something like that because he's usually off pouting, whining, crying and Biotching too much! He loves it when they come to tell him how great he is, not so much with the interviews when he does anything bad. Its been that way for years.

I was just hoping for one of his "going off the handle" interviews when his "favorite" tire brand failed him.

    • 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.?
    • Newsie's where reporting on how the lights are on in the white house at 5am...   "First time in a long long time.."
