Who's your pick California?

26 posts in this topic

I'm going with the 99. It seems to be a Ford track.

3 out of the last 5 have been Fords but overall Chevys have won just as many races there as fords (6).

I don't know how anyone goes about picking a winner for any race with any consistency but I am going to pick a Hendrick's car to win this week.

20

I hope your right, I'm going with him in a salary league on ESPN. I have him locked in at $14.3. by the end of the year, if I stick with him, it may be a steal.

but he killed me last week, in both leagues

#18, #99, or #48...How's that for risky picks.

I'd like to see the #88 win, but after last weekend just making a good pit stop this weekend would be a plus!

Now that's funny right there laugh I'm going to go with 48,99,18,16,17,24. Johnson seems to have this track pretty well dialed in being from El Cajone and all whistle

There was an article I was reading yesterday, where I believe (now don't quote me 100%) that it said that a Hendrick car or a Roush car have 10 of the last 12 races at California.

hendricks or roush probably have 90 out of the last 100 races

with 9 cars if not one of their own then one they support lol

other than all the wins by the 18 last yr and i think the 31 won twice so the 4 big camps pretty much have it covered

not to many alan kukwickies around

maybe tony will be but i think he has alot comeing from hms

Hate to say it, but I'm going with the Biff. He came on a bit at the end of last year and it might carry over to this year.

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
