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.

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!

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

    • Well I had a little project that we found after buying our camper used. It had a leak in the back corner which 3 other same type campers in our camp ground had in the same spot. I sealed the roof a few years ago but have not had time to tackle the soft floor in that corner. Spent one weekend ripping out to find out what I had and a 3 day weekend repairing it. Had to build boxes as new supports to tie into the good wood past the rotted area. Really glad there were two metal frame supports under that end as I could span them with the new wood. Re-insulated and put new plywood down and it's looks great. Now my wife doesn't have to worry about getting into her side of the bed without going through the floor!        
    • Well I guess I could close the loop on my water heater since I finally had time to look at it.     I haven’t pulled the element yet but have filled the water and run through everything with my meter.  I’m 99% sure it’s the element.  I have 120V to it and it Ohms out at 2.  I figure that’s the water giving me that reading since the elements should Ohm out at 10 or more.  Basic rule I learned in shop: Power to the load; load don’t work; load is broken.  Looks like a $15 part.   What I did enjoy learning is getting the propane part of the heater operational.  Never had that before since the wire harness was apparently always disconnected from the ignition module.  I plugged that in and she fired right up.   Now to get my sealants put on tomorrow and clean and lube the bumpout gaskets.  I bought some LED light bulbs to try also.  And time to get a bigger TV installed in the main living area.  That 13 inches just doesn’t cut it with my eyes anymore!
    • Prespawn might be a stretch but I bet you see them on the beds.  Late start/almost no spring in these parts but the water has warmed quickly once the ice finally left.   Last weekend, at about the same latitude as OTC (assuming that’s where you’re headed) the males were all over in the shallows.  Didn’t see many bass beds yet and didn’t see any big females but they’re getting close.  Didn’t have a way to check temps so I can’t tell ya that, just what I saw.   Heading to Ely this weekend - I’ll have temps and observations from there next week.
    • So Fenton is the pick, maybe we can sell off our talent and pickup some middling speedsters/diamonds in the rough and make a vegas like run. 
    • It is not looking good from our end. I finally got Morgan out yesterday and she came to full draw on a nice tom but he busted her on the draw and scooted out of there. I got a shot off at him at 20 yards and he was walking and I didn't quite lead him enough. I clipped feathers back in high but he was fine otherwise.   I have family obligations this coming weekend and stuff going on the following weekend. There's a good chance that our turkey season is over.  If this was Ryan without the tag he would be pushing hard and still chomping at the bit to shoot something. Morgan is much less concerned with filling her tag.    Unpunched tags drive me completely crazy! But it looks like we will have some in the Engel household this year. Sorry team! Good job to you guys who managed to get it done and my apologies that we couldn't hold up our end of the bargain. Well... Ryan did, but Morgan and I couldn't do it this year. Next time!
    • The lake was low when we fished it but they only closed the dam days before ,, should be able to get under the bridge to get to Little yellow ,,, I have not heard that the crappie action was going well tho ,,, Did catch some decent pike  but no walleyes 
    • How high is the water, wondering if we can get into little yellow this memorial weekend or not.  How was fishing?    
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
