So what do you guys think of the road course races? To tell you the truth, I used to absolutely, postively hate despise them. In the last 3-4-5 years (somewhere in there) I've actually grown to like them. I'm note sure why, they can only pass at like two spots on the course, but there is some pretty good bumpin and grindin... I know in the past everyone hated them, just wondering if thats still the case. Maybe its the fact the cookie-cutter tracks have become relatively stale (except for a select few) and there are not enough short tracks. Comments, thoughts, opinions?

Yep. Not a big fan of the road courses either. Good weekend to use the old DVR and fast forward through the race Sunday night.

Yeah, it's racing, but do the drivers really know what they are doing.

I equate it to us MN walleye/northern/catfish/bass or whatever fishermen and sending us down to Mexico to guide for fishing down there. Yeah, it's fishing, but would we really know what we are doing.

I'll watch, but passing is very limited in these races.

They only thing I hope for is a rain free qualifying so Mr. Said can make the field. He gets screwed by rain every time he tries to enter a race and I like Boris. I am not a big fan of road courses, but it is something that has been a part of the series for a long time. I will be fishing so I wont watch it.

I would need a DVR to record the races dude. That and I am not at all impressed with the TNT race announcers. In my opinion, they just suck. Not nearly as exciting as the Fox announcers. No passing, plus boring announcers = something I can live without seeing.

It sure does make good afternoon napping time though. I guess that's why it's called napcar by some.

Hubby is getting Sirius for his birthday on Monday. Maybe I should give it to him early. grin

We can't stand TNT announcers, either.

DVR is the way to go. I watched last weeks race in about 2 hours, could have be less.

I dont like them either, but if I had to pick, Id be looking at juan pablo. The only time he does well is if he can turn right.

I used to like to listen to some of these rather boring summer races on MRN while I'm out fishing, too bad there is no MRN in the cities anymore frown Oh, well I'll just have the Twins game on instead.

I was just thinking the same thing. Big hit in points.

When I checked the NASCAR web site to see the finish order, it differed from the fantasy finish order. I am hoping the NASCAR page is the correct one! Then my hit in points won't be quite as painful.

Tough week for everyone I think unless you got real lucky. I know I didn't!

In my work league I had the 3rd, 5th, and 7th place drivers until six to go when Harvick pretty much took them all out. I still had Sadler running well.....until he had a flat tire. Unbelievable. A few weeks ago all three of my drivers were in the same wreck just a dozen laps into the race at Dover. So, if anyone wants me to put a hex on a driver or three, let me know and I'll pick them in my work league. I'll probably be picking first in the draft in a couple of weeks so I'll have the pick of the litter!!

Definately a different type of racing on this course. Those bumps on the turns are crazy. Pretty good race, though IMO

    • Probably  Canadian. Appears some zealous border guards kept the rest pf them out.
    • my bird id book says its a spotted towhee,used to be called a rufus sided towhee.  
    • Never claimed they were rocket scientists, and I did say they are terrible at putting garbage in containers. Words are all spelled right, just don't make much sense--must be from over seas.
    • You are right. But there was a whole lot of head scratching from the rest of us.  Here is a tasty sample. Thought I'd put it out here for ya just so you do not think your side is hoarding all the genius.  
    • Yea, highly doubt the calls were for well wishes and almost assuredly  illegal at the time, but doubt anything will be able to be proved. Number and length of calls along with a "no no" will probably be the only thing coming out of the Senate inquiry. Am sure Flynn and if whomever else will be well versed on a non incriminating reply. Hard to take down any high ranking gubmint official, no matter the party. 
    • I can't wait for the hearings.  Lock those filthy pigs up!  Send em all to gitmo, heard they have plenty of room there. So how did all that russian propaganda end up on the dnc server?  Youve got 50 pages of hard evidence for that i bet.
    • Reddit I believe   https://www.reddit.com/r/politics/comments/5i63d1/40_electoral_college_members_demand_briefing_on/db5or6d/?st=iy9h32qk&sh=3f2619dd   There were plenty of criminal things the Clinton team could have been charged with but when the inmates run the asylum the usual rules don't apply.
    • Hillary and DWS didn't commit any crimes as difficult as that is to believe. Sketchy politics certainly, but what happens within a political party has no legal ramifications. The FBI already cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the email.   Flynn and other members of Trump's team are likely in violation of the Logan Act.
    • Well, if that happens then let the chips fall but do you think they will be arresting Hillary and DWS at the same time? If so it would be a good start.
    • I would wager the FBI arresting members of Trump's team, likely starting with Michael Flynn. Flynn made 5 phone calls to a Russian Ambassador on the day Obama imposed sanctions. Trump's team defended the 5 calls by stating Flynn was just wishing him Merry Christmas, which is odd because it was December 29th.   http://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-eyes-michael-flynns-links-to-russia-1485134942
