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.

    • 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!!
