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?

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.

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

    •   Attached is what you can get with the $40 package with SlingTV. Looks like they have history but not discovery. They also have $20 and $25 packages. The only thing I watched with any regularity when I had it was ESPN so I dropped it.

Go get yourself an education, which you still have not provided proof of, and never will,  because there IS nothing to provide. You are nothing but an  ill-advised rabble rouser.

    • Well said Del! There weren't issues till he decided to stick his nose in it. The mod for that thread did just fine.
    • I meant harmless in the sense they don't kill fish. With that being said, I'm sure the host fish would prefer that it not have a lamprey attached to it, but at the end of the day, the fish will live...literally. Lampreys are very common in the upper St. Croix River system. I see them attached to redhorse all the time, which makes sense, as redhorse are by far the most abundant fish in the system. If the lampreys haven't "crashed" that system after several thousand years of coexistence, I'm liking gamefishes' chances for the next several thousand years also 
    • John Podesta May Have Violated Federal Law By Not Disclosing 75,000 Stock Shares 3/26/2017 Daily Caller   John Podesta, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 2016 national campaign chairman, may have violated federal law by failing to disclose the receipt of 75,000 shares of stock from a Kremlin-financed company when he joined the Obama White House in 2014, according to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group. Joule Unlimited Technologies — financed in part by a Russian firm —  originally awarded Podesta 100,000 shares of stock options when in 2010 he joined that board along with its Dutch-based entities: Joule Global Holdings, BV and the Stichting Joule Global Foundation. When Podesta announced his departure from the Joule board in January 2014 to become President Obama’s special counsellor, the company officially issued him 75,000 common shares of stock. The Schedule B section of the federal government’s form 278 which — requires financial disclosures for government officials — required Podesta to “report any purchase, sale or exchange by you, your spouse, or dependent children…of any property, stocks, bonds, commodity futures and other securities when the amount of the transaction exceeded $1,000.”   Podesta’s form 278 Schedule B is blank regarding his receipt of any stock from any company. Liberals and conservatives alike tell TheDCNF Podesta should have disclosed the stock. “Well Podesta should certainly have been more upfront in filling this out.  Clearly, it should have been fully disclosed,” said Craig Holman, a lobbyist for the liberal group Public Citizen which was founded by Ralph Nader.  “That’s the point of the personal financial disclosure forms, especially for anyone entering the White House,” he told TheDCNF in an interview. “If the transfer of stock took place, it had to be disclosed,” added former U.S. Attorney Joseph DiGenova in an interview. “If he didn’t, clearly it’s a violation.”   OH, MY...   And there is soo much more to this story...   Absolute criminals...   Link
    • Schumer goes off on Trump supporter at NYC restaurant, witness says Published March 27, 2017 New York Post   Witness: Schumer went off on Trump supporter at restaurant Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., caused a scene at a Manhattan restaurant when he began yelling at a wealthy and well-connected Donald Trump supporter that the POTUS is “a liar.” Schumer, the top Senate Democrat, lost his cool on Sunday night at Upper East Side restaurant Sette Mezzo, according to witnesses. He was dining with friends when he encountered Joseph A. Califano Jr. — the former U.S. secretary of health, education and welfare under President Jimmy Carter and domestic policy adviser to President Lyndon B. Johnson — and his wife, Hilary, who were having a quiet dinner. Onlookers said Schumer was incensed that Hilary — the daughter of William S. Paley, the founder and chairman of CBS — had voted for Trump, even though her husband, Joseph, is a well-known Democrat. One witness said of the restaurant rant, “They are a highly respected couple, and Schumer made a scene, yelling, ‘She voted for Trump!’ The Califanos left the restaurant, but Schumer followed them outside.” On the sidewalk, Schumer carried on with his fantastical filibuster: “ ‘How could you vote for Trump? He’s a liar!’ He kept repeating, ‘He’s a liar!’ ” Hilary confirmed the confrontation, telling Page Six, “Sen. Schumer was really rude . . . He’s our senator, and I don’t really like him. Yes, I voted for Trump. Schumer joined us outside and he told me Trump was a liar. I should have told him that Hillary Clinton was a liar, but I was so surprised I didn’t say anything.”   Sheezus....   What an unhinged lunatic a-hole....   Could you imagine if this had been paul ryan acting in this way ??   I think a knee to the groin was in order..
