Well, it pains me to say this, but look that the Shrub go. I think he lead all but 7, give or take a few, laps of the races today. Dominant in both races. 2mile flat tracks are not the most exciting races, but he made it look easy.

Anybody who thinks that these races are better than Daytona and Talladega is nuts. I don't care who is out front as it's been different drivers over the years, but it's the same mindless racing at California, et al. You get one or two guys who have the set-up figured out and that's the race. Might as well race 25 laps, give them the trophy, and move on to the next track because this alleged racing is a joke.

The rat was so fast today. As much as I do not care for him and his attitude, I have him picked for tomorrow.

He started out like fire last year but ended up without winning a championship in any of the 3 divisions. Its a long season but he again has a good start to it.

You are correct, one can hardly call it racing.

Yeah, these races are all about the handling and the guy with the horsepower and best setup drives away with it. I am pretty impressed with the way the Scrub can get in and drive all three different series and run right up front. It has to have a somewhat different feel from one to the next. The kids got talent. I am hoping for some good side by side racing today even though it may be a snoozer!

Completely agree with Harvey Lee ..

the kid has talent. no doubt about it. Just wondering if he likes the color of his car that much that he has to spread it around all over everyone elses..

What will be interesting is when he is in the position where he gets the chrome horn from another driver moving him out of the way for a win. I think Edwards might be looking for a little payback one of these races.

    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
