Bud Shootout

17 posts in this topic

Paul Menard drew the #1 spot for the Bud Shootout tomorrow night and Jeff Gordon will have to come from the rear. Rimshot.gif

Anyway, any predictions on who's going to win this non-points race? Will Jr. repeat and win his third Shootout trophy?

I saw that practice is on SPEEDTV at 3pm today.

I realize this is just the Bud Shootout, but it looks like an awfull lot of open seats in the grandstands! At least more than I remember from previous years.

If the 500 is anything like the shootout we will see a lot of caution laps. The cars looked completely out of control, bouncing all over the place. I was bummed to see Jr. get it with only 10 to go, but that is the way it goes at Daytona. Never know who will win until they cross the stripe.

Superspeedways stink. I really beliebe NASVCAR likes all the wrecks that happen on these plate tracks.

Long tracks, close packs and dumb drivers and 1/3 the field is always wrecks.

It is not who is the best but who can miss the move by dumbo.

Of the cars left at the end Harvick was the guy I was rooting for. It didn't look real good for him to have a chance the way he was running the rest of the race but somehow snuck it out at the finish.

They were commenting that this was as good as the track will be with the cool temps, so next Sunday could get messy!

Those plate tracks stink. Just ask the teams and drivers which tracks they would chose to dump off the season.

Plate tracks would be the first to go.

The exception would be Daytona. Everybody and their brother is trying to qualify, even guys who know they don't have a chance.

I agree with Harvey Lee, plate tracks stink. The wrecks can be exciting but its not racing. The best car pretty much never wins because it usually gets tore up. Its Nascar's version of Russian roulette but that is why so many love it. My biggest complaint is that I wish they would get rid of the restrictor plate race that is in the chase, it makes no sense.

Losing your favorite driver due to someone else's mistake isn't fun, but I do like to watch the maneuvering that goes on within the race and how they make their way back to the front after getting shuffled back. It's something you don't see at any other track and what makes it unique....a chess match of who's going to work with you as well as making the best moves to get ahead. If you really watch they're doing some amazing driving. More so than any of the cookie-cutter tracks. Any other race gets boring after a while as they are just going through the motions. A restrictor plate race is pins and needles from lap one.

At least now with these cars they can go to the front in fairly short order compared to some of the aero packages they had a few years back where they just rode around.

I do believe the cookie cutter tracks may be a little boring but you can see who really deserves to win the race. Yes, they go from the front to the rear and then to the pits due to some fools goofy unsafe move with the plate tracks.

All I know is that I was able to watch my first race in HD and I enjoyed every minute of it! From watching the cars bouncing around, the blocking, the crashing, and watching the lug nuts fly. It was all a lot more fun!!

Nothing beats Nascar in HD while kicking back in your favorite chair with the beverage of your choice in hand!

    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
