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!

    • They are drumming like crazy now. In fact, I even hear them at night. My wife said when she was a teenager growing up in rural Wisconsin, she always thought that drumming sound was the nearby powerstation.    
    • Lilac blooms are here, just haven't opened. Hearing some reports of good finds in the Houston and Lewiston areas of MN. I checked some new public areas today on the MN side. Could be decent later but too cold and wet right now. Will check some early season spots tomorrow but won't hope for much with the cold weather.
    • Nice!  Must have seemed forever waiting.
    • 6 months later and he is home
    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
