It looked like he was strong but (this hurts) the 18 was the car to beat.

Agreed Sifty. Everyone here knows I do not care for Kyle Busch, but he had a heck of a race going Sunday. It's too bad he got caught up in the wreck (along with others), and it's really too bad that NASCAR called their Superbowl event 3/4 of the way through when the track has lights and when they could have finished it on Monday.

It would have really been an interesting finish to the race...

Mark Martin even argued with his crew chief about wanting to stay out because he felt it was going to start raining...

The crew chief stated "trust me on this one"

Bet it will be a long time before that happens again ! LOL

Mark Martin is a straight up honest racer and honest person. He stated he felt he had a chance to win it.. and I definately believe him.

He deserves it.. and it would have been great to see him get a shot at moving to the front.

Agreed...the pitting strategy really backfired. It would have been nice to see Mark racing for the win at the end.

I was thinking Mark was going to be the darkhorse for the race and there was potential for him to be that. I wish they would have finished the race, even if it was after midnight! Who cares! It's the Daytona 500!

Anyhoo....some of the better cars for the race got taken out in the wreck, no doubt there. But it's no guarantee that the "fastest" car would have won. Seldom does the fastest car win at plate races and there's so many factors and variables....it's hard to say who would have won if it finished under green.

Oh well, what's done is done. Now on to the rest of the season.

    • If this crazy weather keeps up a guy might have to go to the mountains to have enough snow to ride.
    • I purchased a 20v 986 Dewalt brushless and used it with my Nils 8" and could not believe how fast it cut. Very close to my Tanaka motor as far as speed. My plan is to use it with my 6" Nils but wanted to give it a good test and it passed with flying colors. 
    • Pretty sure Bernie had that figured out. After the primaries I voted for "not Trump" You guys haven't picked up that liberals are still going for not Trump, even if that means Mike Pence (who from a political position standpoint is worse for liberals).   Instead you have Trump, a man incapable of taking any form of criticism regardless of how irrelevant it is to anything. Why do I post the crowd sizes? Because Trump, in a speech given only to members of the CIA, thought it was important enough to mention, as well as to have a team of his own people there to applaud when he mentioned the size of the crowds.
    • Here's the exact reason why I encourage everyone to buy the digital readout.  After getting holes drilled and everything setup, I always run my bathroom roof fan/vent to get rid of the moisture as the slush on the floor gets melted.  Yesterday I cranked the fan on max which moves some serious air, but I forgot to crack a window, which caused it to actually suction the CO from my water heater back into the house through a propane line pass through.  I looked up and saw 30ppm on the CO detector, which isn't high, but an indicator that something wasn't right.  All it took was cracking a window and turning down the fan for a minute and it was back to 0.  
    • You do realize the person you wanted to be president couldn't even understand the proper protocol for setting up a cabinet level email account don't you?    
    • I looked into fiberglass a few years back for a build.  I decided against it as it needed a wood backer.  Not sure if there is a different product out there now.  
    • finally got out Friday, put on 75 miles in the heavy drizzle, not the first time I have riden in the rain. the trails were OK, I rode in aitkin co. that doubles the miles I put on in the last two years.
    • they load tested the battery and said it was bad, everything else they said was fine, they put in a new battery. tried it today after sitting since Tuesday, and it started up fine, problem fixed.   I have a 2002 grizz carbed, and that sat for close to 3 months, went to start it this weekend, and it cranked for at least a minute (very cold blooded machine) and it started, it has the same battery that's in the Polaris.
    • Precious snowflake Trump needs a safe space from the media apparently.   I suggest you familiarize yourself with the word kakistocracy, because that appears to be the road we will be traveling down.
    • No,I am saying those who are left with jobs are working for those who Obama is happy to give money to for nothing. He was as bad as it gets in terms of getting people back to work after a recession especially when you factor in the amount of money he spent to do it.
