Looked like it was wrong place at the wrong time incident. NASCAR is saying that it apeared to be a punchure. Why do you call Jr. Ralphie?

All the pre-race talk is making it sound like every driver wants to race hard and get to the front. I think we can expect a Wild race!

Not a good fantasy day for me, I got 2 cars in the garage. The one thing I don't like about this restrictor plate racing is that the teams don't have much control over the their cars. Nascar issues the plates, rear shocks, and the rear springs. I just wish there could be more skill and setup built into these races. The wrecks can be exciting but I'd reather see an exciting downforce race like the last 3 races.

You guys are right. With the tires popping like balloons, I am sure there will be a few more cautions brought out by Goodyear.

Goodyear needs to make the tires fit the car, not the track! We will see several more befor the race is finished.

When did they let you start pushing people below the yellow line? Smith got robbed!

I definaltly think Smith was forced down, I really would have liked to see him or Menard pull it off.

Just when I think NASCAR has run out of ways to give Toyota a win they pull another one out of the hat.

Yeah, I think Smith got stiffed on this one. Tony blocked high and when Smith went low Tony pushed him.

Love Smith after the race, "Well I could wrecked him and made the finish a whole lot more interesting, but I thought better than that." That with after being asked where he thinke he should be doing right now, "I should be out there right now spinning doughnuts."

Smoke got away with one there, and the win should have gone to Smith.

Holy crashfest Batman! There sure were alot of cars tore up in this race! Biffles car looked like a bomb went off in it. My day of fantasy racing took a hit in both leagues and my fantasy football squad lost to boot. Makes me kind of grumpy but at least the race was entertaining and they didn't play follow the leader all day in single file. Could have been worse I could have been at work smirk

Yeah, the two Talladega races this year have been very entertaining, unlike Daytona. A lot more mixing it up.

First of all Carl Edwards should be ashamed of himself for the boneheaded move he did and taking out 3 of his team mates, the interview with Jack Rousch was interesting as he basically stated that Carl really messed up this time. After watching the replay many times and the comments on here about Smith winning I would have to disagree with these coments about Smith winning, Tony pulled down when Smith was still back by the left rear quarter panel and the rules state that you cannot advance your position by going below the yellow line. But we all have our own opinions about the finish.

    • If you planning on doing any hand pulling at all then do not get the lodge she is a tank and would not fit in a short box. As long as your not 300+ lbs you'll be perfectly comfortable with 2 adults in the cabin. Also a cheap alternative to Hifax are a set of old downhill skis (normally $7-15 @ goodwill) I pull mine across parking lots all the time behind the wheeler and they hold up really well. An added bonus is if you cut them off at the end of the sled then they work great for loading and unloading the shack from your pickup box by yourself because the steel sides dig into the ground a bit keeping the bottom from sliding out.
    • tip to a couple good friends   Len,
      Thank you for the stream recommendation, Len! I love the layout of this stream. Fished it from 3pm until 6:30pm.  My brother threw panther 9s and I threw 6s. We scored a brookie/brown/bow trifecta.    
    • Nelson has been down in recent years in terms of Walleye fishing. Depends on what kind of water you like to fish. The flowage and Moose Lake are good if you like fishing really dark water. Grindstone and Lac Courte Oreilles, maybe even Round are also good walleye lakes, but those lakes have very clear water and will fish completely different than the dark water river impoundments in the area.
    • I think it would be an offensive and experience(post season) up grade. I all reality, we dont have the means to make the trade.  We are nearly out of money(cap space) and only have 11 players.  We need food cheap role players right now.   Only way would be to package Wiggins with future draft picks.  If the analysts are actually correct on how improved we will be, those draft pick wont carry a ton of value.
    •   Well not as many as up by the Emily-Outing area but a few.
    • Still on the fence between going with the cabin or lodge, my dad has a normal lodge and it has tons of room which is great but it also is somewhat heavy for 1 guy to load and pull it seems. I mostly fish with just 1 other person and maby 25% of the time by myself so that was why I was leaning to the cabin which also seemed to have plenty of room for 2 it seemed to me. Also from what I understand the cabin will fit in chevy crew cab box and the lodge won't? I have a 04 crew cab short box so one more incentive for the cabin if thats true.
    • Sounds perfect, thinking your guys reviews will seal the deal for me once I can see one in person again, a hyfax kit will also be on my list as I plan on pulling it behind my sportsman 570. Thanks for the review also AAmerican, it's early to be thinking ice fishing but I'm sure there's people out there like us that are a little anxious!
    • The Chippewa flowage would be a great place to start. I will be honest. Walleye are not what I have ever chosen to Target when I fish up there but the flowage is a great fishery.    Nelson lake would be another choice.
    • I have had 3 of the otter pro xt's, a cabin, lodge and resort. I still have the resort and recently purchased the cabin. I have not had many different brand portables but have fished in other brands buddies have. They are the nicest portables I have personally owned and until I try something I like more I wouldn't change from them at all. The resort is heavy and not something I like dragging far by hand especially loaded with gear and much snow on the lakes. But it has tons of room and I have fished 4 people in it before, a little tight but doable. The cabin I purchased for more hand pulling and an extra for if I have people along. They are very warm and I have fished in them down to -30 deg F. A regular buddy heater keeps them plenty warm, if it isn't to cold or the house is banked well its easily t-shirt weather inside. The resort needs a big buddy heater for colder days sometimes due to the larger size but isn't terrible with a regular. Overall very happy with them all and have been very durable. Also no dripping of water from the ceiling. Highly recommend a set of hyfax for the bottom. I had over 1000 miles pulling my old lodge and they hyfax held up great but I always pulled on snow and not across asphalt much at all.   Changes I have made to them: - added a battery box and inside LEDs  - used stainless screws on the band that hods the fabric to the tub only because I don't like the look of the rusted screws.     If you think you'll be purchasing one I would recommend stopping at a Gander Mountain if you have one near by and getting a set of hyfax since they are going out of business there is a good amount of ice gear. I found hyfax recently there for $15 a set.
