Logano

Harvick

Newman

Hamlin

My prediction of Denny choking/something weird happening has to come true eventually. Newman just does not have the car. Since Harvick has to be by far the favorite, and have always picked favorites in our little game, am going to go with Lagonzo.

Lets see Patrick is still mad at Logano from 3 or 4 races ago and a woman never forgets. whistle

Everybody seems to be upset or have someone upset with them except Newman. It could end up with team mates of the final 4 playing bumper cars.

Harvick, Hamlin, Newman, Logano and non finish in the top 5.

I hope Newman wins and exposes the "Chase" as the joke it really is. No wins this year and only something like 5 or 6 top fives. Newman would be the perfect example of a WWF wrestling champ in Nascar. I even heard Denny Hamlin compare and justify the "Chase" format while comparing it to golf and the Fed Ex Cup. Really..... that's how far Nascar has fallen? Sad, just sad.

Hamlin would be 17th in the points now and Newman has only managed a handful of top fives ALL YEAR and had to crash Larson to get in, what a joke! WWE is right.

Congrats Jeff Gordon on your 7th season points championship if you just don't get beat by 28 spots by Logano Sunday.

From the "beyond the flag" site:

Below is a look at what the points would be if there wasn’t a chase format and the championship was being decided purely by points per race.

1.Jeff Gordon

2.Joey Logano (-26)

3.Dale Earnhardt Jr. (-67)

4.Brad Keselowski (-77)

5.Kevin Harvick (-99)

6.Ryan Newman (-115)

7.Matt Kenseth (-123)

8.Jimmie Johnson (-148)

9.Carl Edwards (-155)

10.Kyle Larson (-157)

11.Greg Biffle (-213)

12.Kyle Busch (-221)

The only chase driver that would not be in the top-12 in points is Denny Hamlin. Hamlin would fins himself 17th in the points if not for the chase and he would be 266 points behind Gordon.

Does anyone know why Gordon pitted at the end of the race? That did not seem to make any sense.

According to the radio transmission his crew chief wanted him to stay out but Gordon adamantly said he was coming in for tires because he wouldn't be able to hold off the guys behind him who had fresher tires.

I'd like to know why the #55 stayed out... smirk

The New Chase has been a bit more exciting than the old format but I would still like to go back to the old format.

Oh ya, Congrats Harvick, you did have a great season.

I just don't know. Can't imagine someone paid off Lagono's jack man ....and he and harvick have run up front for most of the year. Denny having to use slicks wouldn't be pre scripted either. Although the yotas did have some power this race, it was a little suspect seeing the 11 upfront that much....as well as newman. Suspect there may have been a whisper passed down not to race as hard around the chase drivers....especially towards the end.

5 wins, 8 poles, 2137 laps led.

Yep, it was a script that arguably the fastest car all year won the championship.

Not to mention driving up through the pack from 12th place with only a handful of laps remaining to win said championship.

Come on.

I've seem this script before; Vince McMahon and the WWE would be very proud!!!

Harvick was fast all year but not able to finish races or run consistently. That used to matter. So did every race on the schedule, Hell Hamlin didn't even run every race this year.

This new format is just not for me.

I would agree Jeff, my vote would be back the way it was but I do not see that happening any time soon.

This last race looked so scripted I did not even watch it all.

NASCAR has been dropping fans so I guess we go the way of the WWE, that does better in viewership I guess.

I guess like everything else, out with the old, even if it worked and in with the new.

I watched the least amount of cup races this year I ever have, just lost interest. This win one race and your into the Chase is not for me either, you need one lucky break and you qualify.

    • We were on Kinn's boats out of Algoma.  
    • A group of us are planning on getting together on Lake Osakis for the day on 8/18/18 for a day of fishing and a midday picnic at the Battle Point Park.  We would enjoy connecting with some fellow anglers from the site to connect and have some fun.  Osakis is a great lake for big gills, slab crappies, nice walleye, pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass.  The best walleye bite has been during low light periods.  Sunfish and crappie bite all day.  We plan on taking a break around noon at the Battle Point Park for lunch.  Right now tentatively looking to connect around 8-9 at the access.  Otherwise look for a red and white Warrior and connect with me, "Borch" on the water I'd you'd like.   I might even have a fishing report really fresh fishing report for you. 
    • It was slow for us this year, steelhead on Sunday afternoon, and only a couple nice kings on Monday. But the potential for a big fish is there again this year.   My friend is a little on the small side, always makes nice fish look HUGE.   My early morning fish came in at 23.6 lbs. A pound and a half heavier than the top pic.      
    • Nice work, that looks incredible. And I'm a big fan of the grey motif.   Thanks for the show and write up.
    • Yeah we brought it up to our cabin and sleep in it if there are a bunch of people up there. Thanks!
    • Are you guys using it as a summer camper as well?  Super Product right there!  😎
    • Thanks! It weighed in over what I thought which was disappointing. It was right around 7000 lbs with full propane tanks and some other stuff in it. We actually weighed it just after getting spray foamed and it was already at like 5000 lbs I’m not sure how others that did the same style steel stud house have a finished weight around 5500 lbs.    The cost in materials was above 20K but below 25 still too scared to finish adding the receipts. We really tried to use the best materials we could find and not cut any corners. When I was pricing stuff out before we started my ballpark was 19K but I forgot to add a tv screws wire and little stuff like that.    Yeah it took a lot of time but I enjoyed it for the most part. I’m actually getting kind of bored now and don’t know what to do with all the free time. 
    • Thanks for taking the time to do a write up and post all the pics! That alone is a big undertaking in itself. Nice work.   any idea what finished weight is for the entire house?    And just a ballpark figure are you willing to share what it costs in material to build something like this?   I can’t imagine how many hours of your own labor you got into this build. I think it turned out amazing.
    • Alright here’s the finished product. I think it turned out pretty nice. Still need a stove/ range but working on it.    Underneath the lift bed there are 7 lights and two speakers. There are 4 lights above the lift bed. The 3 middle lights underneath are on one button the outer 4 are on a different button and above are on a separate button.  55” smart tv recessed into to wall. The speakers really kick out some sound in this thing though. The tv sound comes out of the 5 speakers in the house which are all ran through the stereo and an amp.      Hole lights  Single light above the stove area  This door is for the satellite receiver. The black center piece is tinted acrylic so you can still use the remote with the door shut. The hole just below the tv is also so you can use the tv remote.  Battery monitor  Supply and return water temperatures for the in floor heat. I was actually really surprised I got my 20 degree delta t I calculated for.  Lights above lift bed. Lift bed in lowest position. Could go lower but that’s just where we put the lowest at.  Different height if people are sleeping below.  Folding table.  These are the cabinets inside the bathroom wall. These are only about 9” deep but I think they will be deep enough for a little more storage. The converter is in here as well it is just above the wiring panel. And the large center square is a false front so you can access the tv wires. I think we are going to go with the dry flush toilet. I put a little 12 v outlet in there so it can br ran off the house batteries.     The only other thing I did that i don’t know if others have done is I wired the rear porch light to the reverse wire of the trailer plug. So when you put the truck in revers that porch light comes on and lights everything up.    I think that’s everything. Feel free to ask any questions if you have any. And thanks again to lipripper and others for posting their builds the information was a ton of help and sorry if I copied too much of your design.
