Good ol DW.

Yep! I was going to mention the same thing. "What is the incentive?" was the question he presented.

There was some other pre-race chatter by the FOX talking heads about competition and I think they know that the sport is lacking the spark it used to have and the popularity is starting to fizzle unless something is done. Exactly what we've been saying here the past couple of months. Booooooring.

DW was talking? Oh yeah, he's the reason I have the TV on mute when I watch a race. He might have been a good driver, but I can't stand listening to him. He can join in any intelligent conversation and cause it to lose 100 IQ points. He makes me feel dumber just watching the race! I can't wait untill ESPN gets the races and won't have him on.

By the way, I do like Larry Mac and Mike Joy, they do a very good job.

I happen to like DW and some of his comments. I would much rather listen to this crew than the guys who broadcast the final third of the season. At least the guys on Fox have experience in the sport, and know what they are talking about.

I was suprised to hear DW's rant. Lately NASCAR has discouraged that kinda talk. I agreed with him!

IMO, the whole crew on Fox is way better than that "other" crew.

The funny thing about his "rant" is it is all true.

Nascar for sometime has missed the bumping and banging. There was a long time when people would go to some race's just to see the big one,the way they have it now with the cot (pos) there is no one willing to take the chance of beating the car up because of fact it will ruin your chance at finishing.

We all talked about the different fines that where handed out a couple of years ago with some of the crew chiefs trying to get around the rules,I can't remeber a car even failing pre or post race inspections the last two years, it is a joke that they want them all to run the same.

Big brother is watching and has a heavy hand the problem is the heavy hand is pushing alot of the fans out the door.

So is big sponsor. Do you want to sign on for a season of sponsorship and your driver gets parked for a week? The "passion" left when the sponsors started calling pretty much all of the shots.

Just one mans opinion.

I've been watchin since the mid 80s when espn starting televising it evey week and nascar started to grow and grow fast

it was RACIN money wasnt such a factor I remember DW callin goeff bodine a little turd 2 weeks later mikey reached and punched lake speed i could go on and on rusty and dale fighten no fines or lose of points back then probably just boosted the rating lol

i think about the time the ole man got killed nascar was peaking

stayed there for a bit but has equalized and ole guys like me will keep watchin cuz thats what we do watch and b----h a bit as does everyone from what i hear and read lol

just dont have the charchacters anymore

harvick kinda mellowed after being threathen in the big truck bush probably leaves so quick cuz he doesnt want to get fined or lose points they say nothing stays the same

but i think alittle of back in the day would be good here

NASCAR started going down hill once they started limiting rear-end gear ratios and everything else. The new car is a tank and can take a beating so thing are out of the driver and crews hands now. Every time things get strung out they call a "debris caution" for a piece of tape on the track instead of letting the race play out.

It used to be fun watching the teams push the limits of their engines and cars. It was fun to see some team trying a new engine/gear combo that turned 10,000RPM only to have it blow up. Now it is like IROC used to be. They are given the same car and drivetrain and the engineering and creativity have been taken away.

That was my most memorable part of that race: The Pit Crew sitting on the wall as (this guy you're referring to) drives by. The front tire guy holds up the lug nut like, "Hey, don't you want this?" laughlaugh

    • Think we should change the topic to "Trump for Trees."
    • Had to go all the way back to Missouri to hunt in the snow this year! Beautiful morning but not much movement. Did see some late rut activity Friday.
    • Dotch, you guys over there are almost famous....   Almost because it is Waseca, but whatever.    Mark Seeley's weather blog... http://blog-weathertalk.extension.umn.edu/   .... Waseca now reports 54.13 inches of precipitation for 2016 and this is a new statewide annual precipitation record, surpassing the old one of 53.52" at St Francis (Anoka County) in 1991.
      ....   And an interesting thought...(from Mark, not me) Commentary on Winter TIME: No question will be answered this week, but I want to take TIME to make a comment about Winter TIME. Managing the TIME in the Winter Season in Minnesota is a different ball game than other seasons of the year, because everything takes longer. No question winter will be felt more frequently soon in the daily weather, and snowfalls will become more frequent this month. The rash of bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicular accidents reported during the snow storms towards the end of November reminded me about adjusting for Winter TIME. Our concept of time needs to be adjusted. Lengthen the time intervals that you have intuitively built-into your everyday habits and tasks. It takes longer to walk places, longer to drive places, longer to dress and undress, longer to warm up the car, longer to degomble (shed snow) when you come into the house. You need to make time to shovel snow, scrape the windshield, clean the furnace filters, When you walk take shorter steps and not too fast...put the boots, gloves and hat on when you go outside....check on the neighbor if their place hasn't been shoveled...everything should slow down..except for the long Minnesota goodbye..that is better shortened...just say goodbye, open the door, leave and close the door behind you....no need to stand in an open doorway for minutes conversing about last minute stuff. Winter TIME is an adjustment that may save you anxiety, regret, or even injury.
    • Would you use a bobber on your rattle reel with these? I would think a lively minnow would pull the line out of the contacts.
    • My my, how the mighty have fallen...  I went back to the thread on the cook subsidy, and what did I find in the second post from you, on the second page....     Gee, you were ok with the 66 million because it wasn't a stadium or something, but now all butt hurt over 7 million of Indiana money?    Now that there is a funny joke.  
    • Thanks to everyone who replied. Lots of good advice. I'll start with an electrician and go from there.
    • Is there some type of frame or carriage that bolt to machine?  Or do the extra wheels just "float" back there?
    • Who has it for that price? Is the transducer included? I have a 5" version. They are good units but if you ever need out of warranty service they will not repair your unit. They give you credit towards a refurbished unit of the same type or let you upgrade to a different model for a certain price which is something to be aware of. I found that out when my elite 5 wouldn't turn on.
    • Your post is demonstrative of the point I am trying to make. Rural areas have been sold a bunch of talk, and you believe that talk and vote against your own interests. The metro area is taking nothing away from the rural areas in terms of taxes, tax dollars flow the other way. It flows that way through employers that exploit you. A particular quote from "What's the Matter with Kansas?" really nails the point home.
