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.

    • I look at it like cast iron....numerous cookings give 'em a perfect seasoning. Gotta leave some residue on IMO.
    • No butcher buddy? They can order one for ya....be advised they have taken a huge leap in prices. Ask a butcher about that. Mine (who's also a good friend) said it's the highest he's ever seen 'em at right now.
    • jhust find a locker plant that smokes their own bellies and buy one from them.
    • I have seen it in Costco quite often.  Didn't look last time.    Or call around, often the meat markets will special order if desired.   Seems it was in the 3 buck a pound area if I remember right.     I don't know how far from a Costco you are, but they are a good place to buy meat.   Sams Club might work also. 
    • Pretty hard to tell. Is this on a TWSP, County or State road? You will need to get a permit from them and build it to their standards if approved. Will you need a culvert? Probably will unless you locate it at a highpoint. Will you have to remove any trees? How much fill is needed? is the ditch deep or shallow? How long do you want it? Hopefully you are not impacting any wetlands... It use to be simple, but now it is much more complicated. Could get spendy...
    • Since my smoker is new for now I throw them in the big wash sinks in the basement with some Dawn and hot water to soak. Then rinse them with more hot water. I'm sure in time once they get more "purplefloyd seasoned". I'll rub them a bit with a grill brush and hit them with a garden hose! 
    • Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Here in Minnesota, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s and the Walleyes keep rollin’ in! Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches and crank-baits right along the weed line. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 and 26 feet. Jigging has been tough this week with the strong winds, but the Mayflies have finally tapered off!!
       
      Up on the Canadian side, bottom bouncing has been filling the live wells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have seen nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action can currently be had in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing is still sporadic with high 40” class fish being caught from shallow bottom bays or just outside of them. 

      Fish of the Week:
      49" and 46" Muskie
      40" Pike
      At least 10 Walleye over 25" 

      We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge
    • Anyone know where I can find it?  Checked a couple grocery stores and even a butcher and nobody has it?  Also what's a decent price if I do find any? 
    • When mine get caked I nuke em on the gas grill for about 15 minutes. easy peasy  
    • I agree with purpleflloyd..........seasoning. I MIGHT use a grill brush twice a year that's it.
