      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

DEI / Ganassi Merger Official

Recommended Posts

I got this off of Jayski. From the sounds of it they will be running Chevy's.

OFFICIAL - Earnhardt and Ganassi Form New Four-Car Team: Two of motorsports’ biggest names – Earnhardt and Ganassi – will launch a four-car team beginning in 2009 through the combination of the motorsports operations of Dale Earnhardt, Inc. (DEI) and Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates, Inc. (CGRFS). NASCAR stars Martin Truex Jr. and Juan Pablo Montoya will drive the #1 and #42 respectively and future star Aric Almirola will be behind the wheel of the #8. The driver of the #41 will be named in the near future. “In this ultra-competitive era of NASCAR, it is necessary to build and sustain the strongest team possible and our combining with the people and equipment at Dale Earnhardt Inc. will help create a strong four-car program for years to come,” said Chip Ganassi. “This is a win-win for both organizations as well as all of our partners.”

“Having a partner like Chip who is heavily involved on the competition side of the business is an ideal situation for DEI,” Teresa Earnhardt said. “He has a long history of managing championship teams in the IndyCar and Rolex Grand-Am Series and I share his passion and goals of winning races and ultimately championships in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. I think this is a case where we are stronger together than we are apart.” Details of the new four-car operation will be announced at a future date

One step closer to a museum.

Nice job Teresa.

They way folks talked last year, little Earnie was guaranteed a Championship if given the right equipment, love, and support.

And that a papa figure like hendricks was the missing link.

In hindsight, mabey Teresa knows more about her job than you give her credit for ?

After all, the ultimate decision to drive for the dark side, was little Earnie's, not Teresa's. And that money was the motivating factor both for Lil' Earnie and hendricks.

Money perhaps Teresa did not have, or could not match.

It was more than money that broke that deal up and I don't think a king's ransom would have kept Jr. there unless he received majority ownership of the company. She was leading the company in the wrong direction and Jr. knew it was time to bail out unless he could get control of it so he could bring it back to where Sr. intended it to go. Does anyone think that Jr. is hurting for money? He rakes in the cash for his endorsements alone.

I'm not sure how anybody can give Teresa credit for anything except the downfall of DEI.

I don't know who said Jr. would win a championship, but I don't disagree that many felt his chances would be a lot better somewhere else, and they were.

I still think that Jr. will win a championship with Hendrick but he needs to upgrade his Crew Chief. I'm sure his Cousin knows quite a bit about cars but I don't think he knows enough to win a championship. There is a reason that Jimmie wins and Jr. doesn't.

Ralphie needs an older crew chief like Jimmy Fenning or Steve Hmiel. A certain type of guy he cannot argue with. I would swap Latarte and Eury and see how that is.

Back to original topic

This gives DEI a very big marketable driver, who is now the best driver they have.

    • Ya! What Del said!  " had a thing on the floor ..."  
    • They been around a long time; make lots of appliances. Saw lots of their stuff in the Dayton's/Macy's.
    • Never heard of that brand but it is a good price.
    • Why do we need those new fangled solenoid things? My 41 Plymouth had a thing on the floor that worked the starter.  And another one for the high beams.  Bunch of sissies!
    • no tanks...............
    • That's exactly what I have in this system. Aluminum insect screen around a 2x2 frame that sits in the blocks along the perimeter of the interior of the box if you see in the construction pictures. 
    • SALE!
    • I was out last nite----7 inches of ice
    • Man wouldn't I love to have a nice F100!   Years ago had a PU from Ford with that rock solid, dependable straight six! What a piece of work. I traded if off and the fella I traded it to did the same and it went through a bunch of owners. And the last time I saw the carcass of the thing it rigged to big saw (24" blade) and was being used to cut firewood and slabs for cabins. Hell, it may still be running!!
