Silly Season

49 posts in this topic

Wow, lots of stuff happening or allegedly happening anyway.

Stewart is supposedly announcing within the month that he is buying the Haas CNC team with Office Depot/Old Spice as sponsors. His teammate will be Ryan Newman with Jack Daniels on his car. UPS is moving from Mikey's circus to Bowyer's car.

As soon as Stewart makes his announcement everything should fall into place and contracts will be signed in a hurry. Cant wait to see where the cards fall.

What about DEI selling?

From Racingone.com:

"Already with sponsor General Mills in hand, Childress is reportedly speaking with Mears, Stremme and Martin Truex, Jr., who is not a lock to return to DEI for 2009.

In fact, Sirius Speedway reported this week that DEI owner Teresa Earnhardt is considering selling the team in part or completely, leaving more questions than answers at the operation."

a couple of years ago DEI with Jr and the Bud sponsorship, no one would had thought this scenario. Things are chganging fast.

This is a big part of it!

Teresa must be a very good owner if all of her drivers have either left or want to leave. I hope she sell to someone who will bring this team back to one of the top again. By the sounds of it there is a very interested party looking to buy.

News now is claiming the Stewart deal is a done deal and a press conference is forthcoming to announce he's out at Gibbs at the end of the year. MAJOR SHOCKER FOR HIM TO LEAVE THAT TEAM...

Not a good move for Stewart to leave that Toyota Horsepower. Now he is going to go to that team and waste his money. Oh well thats fine with me. Logano will jump his car next season and compete well.

Sorry Tony. You will be whining more next year.

Tony & JGR have officially announced that Tony will not be with them next year. They parted on good terms, and Zippy will stay with JGR. It sounds like there will be a official announcment of Tony's future plans (Hass ownership) at Indianapolis next week.

The sad part is that they make a BETTER PRODUCT. If they want people to Buy American then they would try and make the quality of the products equal to what Toyota makes.

Heck Chevy is as much Mexican as Toyota is Japanese now so I don't understand how some still think this way. It is silly.

Got this from Jayski.com, The deal is done!

Stewart Joins Haas to form Stewart-Haas Racing in 2009: During a press conference at Chicagoland Speedway Thursday, Tony Stewart announced that he is joining with Haas CNC Racing to form Stewart-Haas Racing in 2009. Some notes from the press conference:Stewart and Joe Custer, General Manager of Haas Racing, appeared together to make the announcment. Stewart said that owning World of Outlaw and USAC teams fed his interest in ownership in NASCAR. Ownership is now a side of him that he enjoys, that is important to him and that he wants to do the rest of his life Stewart was offered half of the team in the deal. He did not say if he purchased his half or if it was given to him as a part of the deal. A driver decision for the second car has not been made. The team is looking at who is available and will make a decision later. There were no sposnor announcements or car number announcements [stewart reportedly would like the #14 because it was A.J. Foyt's number]. There are no plans to move the team to Indianapolis. It's critical for NASCAR teams to be close to Charlotte.(7-10-2008)

Classic post from someone who has never owned one. How bout that "Check Engine" light. Lol.

Is the reason that the Camry is one of the all-time most reliable cars because they suck??

I buy plenty of USA made quality products but when it comes to a vehicle, unless they can improve it just is not happening.

    • Actually, you just chose not to.
    • I've had a Marcum camera for many years and have found it extremely educational.  When I take new anglers on the ice, they love watching the fish.  Never had the camera spook a fish.   I used a Marcum battery-powered panner to rotate the camera, and that helps identify my lure.  However, you also have to be pretty confidant with the depth of your jig, so that it will show up on the camera.   I've found the camera of limited value during the summer, because it's constantly moving up and down, and a little side to side.  Even if I can find my jig, it's not for long.  What I use the camera for during soft water season is to identify bottom structure and get a general idea what's down there.     During hard water season, I use it primarily to see bites before they happen.  Not only do I know exactly what's near or looking at my jig, but I can see when they're actually going after it.  I have pulled the hook away from fish that were obviously too small, and also been able to set the hook on a bite before I could feel it.   I love my flasher, but I have out-fished buddies with my camera.

    • Got my Helix 5. Now just need to get my sled out of storage and figure out where to mount it.
    • Now that's funny.  I chose not to answer a ignorant question that an elitist like yourself could care less the answer to.  The only reason you want an answer to that question is to spend the next week trying to find some ignorant reason he/she is a bad choice. #rentfree
    • But you couldn't articulate who your favorite Trump picks for justices were, or why.
    • Many of the resorts / cabins where I stay on weekend fishing outings do not have a fish cleaning house. I also do not like the smell of dead fish from the cleaning process in my home. My wheel house is a fishing shack only, non-sleeper, which I take off the ice each night. It has both A/C and propane heat so I usually plug it into an AC outlet at night.   I decided to build a retractable / drop-down fish cleaning table 17” x 48” up and out of the way while on the ice and a warm place to clean fish. I use clear news print between the my fish cleaning board and the table to eliminate the need to wash the table every time I use it. Functionally works well, still needs some finish touches, paint, stain, rust treatment. I can also see many uses for this table while on the Ice. Fish Cleaning Table.mp4
    • Big win for the team today. Not many folks thought they would go into Carolina and leave 3-0. If this offense can get their sh$t together this may be a fun year. Defense is the real deal.
