Ya that was strange...

What about Shrub and Montoya? Gotta love someone treating that little punk like he treats everyone else. Montoya tells it like it is and drives like it too.

No kidding....where was his spotter and what was he doing???

That's was funny...I don't like either guy, so to see those 2 get after it was fun!

Yes, that was a great move on Montoya's part. Hopefully a few more will treat the Rat like he treats others.

I must have missed it but when did Kyle Busch intentional turn into someone on a caution???

Please Montoya is 19 spots behind. What did he have like a 9th place finish this year maybe??? Wow keep it up Juan.

You can find the video on nascar . com.

88 was still on the track when slowed to pit (and got hit).

Looks like indecision on 88's part. (Bonehead ?)

No fault of McMurray.

Watching three replays, I saw the 88 car three quarters of the way under the line and then was hit. Thats unless they changed the replay. Jr did not rearend McMurray unless that also changed.

McMurray stated himself, I never saw him.

And McMurray still rear ended him. Any way a racer looks at it, it was all Jamie's fault.

Mackmurray and Ralphie was a racing incident.

Someone needs to tell Jaun Valdez the drug smuggler that its not okay to spin someone during a caution. He could have wrecked other people. That was the real bonehead move. He ended up losing like 10 spots.

I thought it looked like JR turned hard towards pit lane and it kind of looked like he would have had a hard time missing the commitment cone. I thought that both were at fault

Ya, but he got to take a poke at the Rat and that was probably worth it.

Maybe the rat made enough enemys this year that he may get "shuffled" back in the draft this week!

Maybe I have a new 2nd favorite driver now.

......and I think Juan's move was out of frustration cause hes a scrub and has only only won 1 race in 2 years.

I'll respectfully disagree. grin

McMurray said he didn't even see him. (Bonehead? and Bonehead spotter too?)

There was nothing wrong with where Jr. was at in entering pit road.

Jr. was not on the track, he was on the apron

McMurray admitted that he was down on the apron in the corner's as his car ran through the corner's better there

I've got nothing against McMurray at all...seems like a nice guy. He just made a mistake. Going at the speed through those tight corner's lower than most all the other cars, I'll put more of the blame on his spotter...obviously he was not paying attention at all.

    • Love the curvature of the antlers.   Beautiful mount!
    • Not a monster for sure but he makes the season a success. I wasnt going to be able to hunt tomorrow because of a first communion, not afternoon today because of my dads birthday, and only evenings Monday&Tuesday.  So time was limited and i am more than happy to eat jake. Here he is.
    • Either I'm slackin', or the sun is rising earlier than it did last year! Didn't make it to the river until 6, but surprisingly I was still the first to arrive  walked to my normal starting spot, but once there, something told me to go out of the ordinary. So I packed away my black panther martin and put on a crayfish husky jerk. I didn't catch the trophy I desired, but I did catch some nice ones, with the biggest being about 15 inches. I ventured farther downstream than I ever had before, and wanted to keep going, but it appeared that the fishing easement ended, and I may have been on private property. I stayed in the river the entire time, but didn't want to push my luck, so I went back upstream. Caught 19 total, probably lost at least as many. Surprisingly, no brook trout though. 
    • Oh yeah, a lot of the newer 1/2 tons have frame rust issues as well.  If you want a serious off-road machine, you need to go back to the models with the straight front axles, and of course, they're getting harder to find in decent shape too.  Especially in the rust belt.  You can still find solid older trucks if you head west, young man...        
    • Just to be clear- The wrangler wasn't introduced until 87 so at least compare apples to apples and having owned ford,chevy and dodge trucks of the Wrangler era I can testify they all have issues. My 08 Ram had more frame and fender rust than my older Jeep. The Chevy's have plenty of frame issues as well. Yes. It's a concern but if you want something like this,there is no better alternative.   https://www.google.com/search?q=chevy+frame+rust+problems&client=opera&hs=Lrs&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjAnPz1kMrTAhVpw4MKHSs9B1UQ_AUICigB&biw=800&bih=381
    •   Good questions. You have 3 body style configurations to choose from.  The YJ body was made from 87-97 and that had either a 4 cyl or an inline 6. It had leaf springs and a pretty spartan interior IMO. Some serious off roaders liked the leaf springs but they rode pretty rough IMO.   I feel the 4 cyl is anemic especially with bigger tires. The 4.0 inline 6 is bulletproof, has decent torque and power and fits the Jeep about perfectly. In the YJ series the manual transmission seemed like a better option in my experience.   The TJ ran from 98-06. This version replaces leaf springs with coil over shocks. Mine is an 06 and has the dana rear with the 4.0 and auto trans. I have BFG AT KO 32x10s and on gravel they have taken out 2 side mirrors by throwing rocks at them.    I prefer the TJ series. It has better suspension and interior than the YJ while keeping the original drive train. Fuel economy pretty much sucks as you are essentially driving a brick. I probably get about 12 MPG. If they had done a diesel I would think the wrangler could get 30 but...   The JK series replaced the TJ and was a pretty radical redesign. The body is wider, the drivetrain is totally different and the interior was upgraded quite a bit as well. They went to a pentastar V6 instead of the inline 4.0. trans was upgraded as well. They also started to sell the 4 door unlimited which gives more interior space as well. The new ones are much more civilized and refined which is great for taking the top off and driving to the lake or beach. OTOH they are expensive and harder to justify taking off the top and heading into the woods to hunt or find mud. 
    • Yes, you do have to have at least a weak cell signal and battery for the GPS to work. I know that can be challenging at times in the woods.
    •   Not sure about the new V6, but the old inline 6 was bulletproof, and had a lot of low end torque, which is a desirable feature in an off-road vehicle.       Any 1/2 ton pickup truck from the 70's and early 80's in particular, had a much better frame than a Jeep.  Body panels rust in all of them.   Not saying this is a deal-breaker for a Jeep, just something to watch for, since it is a very common problem.
