Yep...The #48 team certainly kicked it it in gear when they needed to!! Hopefully, it's a Hendrick car that wins it next year....#88 maybe?!?!?!

I like JJ and they are a great team but its just to boring for me . Kinda like the Pats or Spurs when they were winning all the time.

There are a few Rousch cars that will put up a good fight for the top spot also besides Hendrick. One of those two stables will provide the 09 champ.

That's the value of the company if it were for sale. It says nothing about how much technical support they get to race. According to Jack Rousch, Toyota was rumured to have spent over $100,000,000 on ther cup program for this year.

Also the reason why J. Roush sold 50% of Roush Racing to Fenway Sports Group.

"The reason we may bring in a new investor is so we can stand the pressure of increased spending that Toyota will bring," Roush said.

Roush alone could not finance a spending war with Toyota.

Just another good reason for DIE to combined with Ganassi. (Good business decision)

I don't think anyone has mentioned this yet, but if the classic point system was still utilized Carl Edwards would be the champ by 16 points.

I believe just about every racing points system ended up being closer or more competitive than the Chase's turned out to be.

The chase must go!

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
