Hopefully Gordon! He'd have 5 or 6 Titles if it wasn't for this chase non-sense so I'm hoping he steals one.

Highly unlikely though!

I would agree with JJ. he is running better every week and they have been through it. Busch has had a great year but it won't be so sweet if he does not win the championship.

If Hamlin keeps his streak up he may be the guy? Consistency is always the key and what is he at, three 3rd place finishes in the last three races or something like that?

Hopefully not because I really don't want to hear all about the Toyota this and Toyota that stuff. Maybe next year will be a better year for Toyota to get a championship!! grin

Kind of hurts to say this but I think it may be the 99 car.

There is the 88 sitting there to.

If the last few races are any indication the #48 may be the man to beat. Unfortunately I do the the #18 will be right there right along with the #99. It could end up being one heck of a battle. I would love to see the #88 right in the mix, but they haven't been real consistent as of late.

If I had to pick....

1) Johnson

2) Shrub

3) Edwards

4) Earnhardt

5-12).....take your pick

Still hoping Dale Jr. and his crew find a little lightning in a bottle and get hot over these last 10 races though!

Jr's pit crew this season at times has been on the slow side but the last few races they have cranked it up and are a little faster in pit stop times which should really help. Now, its up to himself and his crew chief.

Jr has had a very good year and I will agree they do need to crank it up a notch to another level to contend for the top spot.

Might need to throw the 29 in the mix as well. 7 top tens in the last eight races, with 4 top fives. I think it'll be a pretty interesting chase. 1 DNF for anyone and its pretty much all over.

If JJ can't win it,then I'm pulling for Carl... I just can't believe I just said that, pulling for a Ford of all things eek. But then again, anything would be better than Shrub

I think JJ and his team finally got the kinks worked out at just the right time. That's my pick.

Well look to a new forum to start in the next day or two for the chase for the hat.

These last 10 races are set up well for guys like JJ, Carl and shrub....or vice versa maybe....these guys are set up well for the last 10 races. Guess what I'm trying to get at is JJ, Carl and shrub all excel at the type of tracks that make up these last 10 races. I for one think the cup will be between these 3 as that's the way the season has gone, but I certainly wouldn't discount any of the others. Not before the chase starts at least. I don't know if any one team can afford a mulligan with the quality of contenders in this year's chase.

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
