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.

    • Well picked up my BBQ sauce this weekend. Sure is good stuff! 13 bucks for a gallon jug!
    • We should have a holiday every month........   I mean a paid holiday....    lol
    • I doubt they make much difference in towing, and the actual research says that they don't, and may be worse.  Do a search for "frontal area" on your favorite search engine for an explanation.   I like the V front for the bathroom area.  It works out to be about the perfect amount of space.   
    • Haven't weighed it.     Catching tons of fish.  Just had an awesome weekend up on Mille Lacs.  Going back up this weekend.  Then it's off to Gull for the big tournament.

    • Adrian's is good or really any of them on that point is a safe bet.
    • First on CNN: Trump's Cabinet pick invested in company, then introduced a bill to help it   http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/16/politics/tom-price-bill-aiding-company/index.html   Draining the swamp indeed. 
    • No, it's bigger than that. That's not chicken feed Foghorn Leghorn.
    • I think it all depends on whether you are looking for at a 14' + 3' V or a true 17' box. On my house I put the door on one side of the V and stove and counter top on the other side. I would have lost a lot of room and at least one hole is it weren't for the V. 
    • What you obviously don't understand is deficits are not moderate.  Economic growth is much slower than the climb of the debt to GDP ratio.   https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/GFDEGDQ188S   Also, several foreign countries have scaled back purchases of treasuries, increasing yields, and putting upward pressure on interest rates.  If interest rates rise, (as they naturally should) interest on the debt increases, and the effect would be to put even more pressure on trying to maintain a balanced budget.   Here's that pesky $9 trillion figure again - quoted from St. Louis Fed:   If the increase in yields is a result of the pullback, then foreign demand might be crucial in keeping a cap on borrowing costs. This implication is especially important if the U.S. national debt increases by $9 trillion over the next decade as projected.2
