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!

    •     Well just in some of the data and articles I read, which might be fake news I don't really know. It looked like the amount/lbs of walleye were in the lake just that there are a lot of large ones and not many small ones.......The data also showed that the bait fish were really dropping in amounts/numbers.....   Interesting to see that a report from someone like yourself is just like I head from the guy I met at upper red. Thought maybe he was pulling my string or something when he told me the fishing was great, then seen the DNR shut the lake down.
    •   Thats the thing, I can't find really any good pictures of one. I was given this auger a few days ago buy a guy who didn't use or want it.  He only used it once when he forgot his power auger. There is a string with a price tag on it for $89. It was sitting in his machine shed in a corner collecting dust.   I cleaned up the auger and touched it up. There was a slight ding in the auger flighting up a turn or two from the bottom. That I fixed. However,  the mounting head for the blades didn't have any of the original powder paint damaged, none had flaked off, and there was no rust spots. The blades where rusted up but not damaged. I assume if they were bent the powder paint would have expanded & flaked off. The two blade angles seem to look like they are how they should be. So I'm really kinda leaning that the blade mounts might not be bent with the way it looks.    If I look at the shaver blades from the top or bottom they look like a normal shaver blade. However, when looked at from the side they seem to have a very slight curve that matches the blade mount. Did jiffy have a design like this different from the others? So I'm confused.......what would be the odds of both the blade mount sides being bent to what looks like exact angles.......if they were bent what is the odds of both blades seeming to conform to the bends without cracking or breaking........I measured from one outside blade edge to the other and got 8in......but I know 8in augers can go from a range of 7.5in-8.5in depending on brand and other things......If the blade mounts were bent I would think some powder paint would have flaked off.......I'll do the ice bucket trick.....was hoping someone had one or could chime in. It looks a little like a design between a flat shaver and a curved blade if it's not bent......I do really like the design if that is what it is meant to be. I also love the blade cover being a rubber that is tight and doesn't fall off. I just really don't know if they are bent or not bent. Confusing.....Also wondering if flat shaver blades would work on it or if I would need to find a set of Jiffy blades that had a slight curve to them.....
    • I wax every exposed part of the string. 
    • BD!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i wasnt good enough for a lakeside lot!!!!!!!!!!!
    •   Is that you, or the back of BD then?
    • well, that picture he posted?????????? that was my boat and i was part owner of that dock if that tells ya anything!!!!!!!!! yea he's been there!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    •   Ok but you told BigDave huh? Maybe he'll give it up?
    • Hi guys,   I am a beginner and just purchased a Matthew Halon bow last year.  However, I haven't waxed the bowstring and figured I should do it before this season starts.   My bowstring doesn't seem to have any colors on it showing where to avoid waxing it.    Can somebody explain or direct me to a video on where to avoid waxing on the bowstring of a Matthew Bow?  I know the part about rubbing the wax into the string good, but I am unsure which part of the bowstring to avoid waxing exactly.    Thank you.
