All the empty seats should send a message. Pretty sad when the announcers are trying to get people to come to the track in the pre-race show. Nice hat Meaney!

It was sad to see all the empty seats, but maybe it will help wake them up to the fact that the sport is just not as popular as they thought it was. The races with the COT are just not as fun to watch. I turned it on with 10 laps to go after watching a movie and that's what I watched of the race.

Wow Nascar has gotten really borrrrrrrrrrrrrrinnnnnnnnnnggggggg this year.

I have to agree with about everyone.

They have been yawnfests.

They switched around the California and Atlanta dates next year, but isn't that similar to rearranging chairs on a sinking ship?

California doesn't need a new date they just deserve one race per season.

It was nice to see domination at it's finest. On the latter I would rather Atlanta have 3 races.

Celebrate The Unibrow

Keeping the #24 championship-less since 2002

LOL, I love that!

anywho... I agree that this year has been a yawnfest and that something needs to be done. Not too sure what all happened or if it is just because of the COTs... but yea, change something fast!

I saw the last 28 laps. More than enough to know that nothing really happened over the previous 4hrs!

Simply COT races, they are almost all very boring. This car has ruined good racing.

Now, watch the 48 car go with a few left. I don't care for JJ but I do believe he will make a good run at the title with it close to showtime.

There was a race this week????

Guess I missed it. Or mabe I didn't care. For some reason it just does nothing for me this year. Silly season was fun, but that is about it.

DW had a good read on Fox HSOforum about going to Darlington this weekend and how they should still be racing there instead of Calisnoozia. And what is with this place apparently falling apart already? Two cautions for parts of the caution lights falling onto the track???!!!!! Have they got illegals doing the maintenance there or what????

Illegals doing the maintenance on parts made in China with lead-based paint. Will probably be sold to some kid as a souvenier. crazywhistle

I haven't decided if I'm going to apply or not. With a baby due Oct 5 I expect my hunting will be greatly limited this fall though, so I should probably get a permit and drop the first backstraps I see.

Congratulations

Keep 'em away from that lousy #24 memorabilia

    • We live in some sort of Bizarro world now - Sarah Palin calling Trump sinfully stupid.     Here's another one from Ann Coulter, who literally wrote a book "In Trump We Trust"    
    • You do realize that if the taxes were done that way, the cities would get $2.53 billion richer, and rural areas would get $2.53 billion poorer. The 7 county metro pays substantially more taxes (nearly 2/3 of the states total) than the other 80 counties in Minnesota combined, but only receives roughly half of the state expenditures.   Sorry to break it to you, but rural America is not fiscally solvent. Those citiots you speak of are bankrolling the entire country. It's easy to see on this chart: more urban states are to the left (givers) and more rural states are to the right (takers).  
    • I tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).
