I will say a roush car. Kenseth won last year, Biffle 2 years ago and Edwards has an ave finish of 4.4. Didnt Biffle lead most of the spring race last year and then run out of gas with a lap to go? whoever wins, it will be boring, bring back Rockingham.

Boring, yea for the most part, but still it is a race and I'll watch it.

Kenseth to win!

Races at California rate right up there with watching grass grow. Definately not a race to introduce a NASCAR newbie to. I will be back from Mille Lacs by race time, but I guarantee you I'll get a good nap in before the checkered flag.

The Rousch stable have pretty much ruled the roost there the last couple of years.

Uncle Bill...i can tell that you are a smart man!! smile.gif

yea..."Matt Kenseth will debut the popular #17 Carhartt/ DeWALT Ford Fusion in this weekend’s event at California Speedway. Since entering the Cup series full time in 2000, no one has completed more laps on two-mile ovals (California & Michigan) than Kenseth, who has completed 5,299 of a possible 5,302. Kenseth’s average finish at the two two-mile tracks is 9.84, tops among active drivers with 11 or more starts. Matt has four wins at Fontana, three Busch and one Nextel Cup. In Saturday’s Busch event, Matt will drive the #17 Dish Network car for the first time".

If Kahne brings the car I am expecting him to bring, I bet the 9 will be strong..

Ya probably some more of that 43rd place power for the doughboy huh! laugh.giflaugh.gif You may be right.

Gordon and Kenseth had the two best cars on these type tracks all the latter half of last season. No reason they wouldn't be the two favorites here this weekend.

Laugh now. I really think it's going to be Kyle Busch but realized I didn't pick him this week. frown.gif

However, you can't say that the RCR cars aren't running good so it could happen.

    • Early morning bucks playing around in the back yard.
    • Nice!  Congrats to you guys!
    • Well Day 2 was a complete bust. Warm temps and high winds along with a full moon kept any daytime movement to a minimum at best. Onto the next.   Day 3 we got plenty of rest the night before and we’re ready to hit hard. We started off on the bluff where Cole had got his cow and before we could even sit down we had 3 cows at 600 yards heading at us. We lost sight around 500 and figured they would move right up the draw around 200 yards away. They didn’t follow our plan and disappeared forever. Around 10am we had some animals above us. We could hear hooves on the bluffs but never saw them. We had lunch around noon and then started still hunt ridge to ridge. Around 130pm we were on a sharp drop of when son says ELK! We immediately hit the ground as they were only 100 yards almost straight below us on steep bluff. We belly crawled to the edge and looked into the timber. We could then only see one standing looking straight away from into the wind. I slide my rifle up in front of me and placed the cross hairs behind the shoulder. My first opportunity at a Bull ever. Cole had him in the binos when I pulled the trigger. Not needed. He dropped right in his tracks. Cole tackled me and both erupted in laughter. Both of us total rookies had filled our elk tags 3 days into the season. Not sure if we are good or just plain lucky but either way it’s been an unbelievable experience.  Now we had some serious work ahead of us.  We literally had to pack him out an almost straight up vertical cliff. I have one really bad knee...all those years of jumping out of airplanes in the military have taken a toll on my knees. We each grab a rear quarter and made the first trek out. When we got back I was hurting. Cole said sit down Dad. I got this!! He then hauled out both fronts and loins in one haul. Went back down for the head and did that too. As I sat and watched him I was overcome with emotion. How did I get so lucky in raising such a grateful and helpful young man!  He got back up to me and we both broke down in tears and hugged for about 15 mins. What an experience we’ve had. The effort and hard work you go through on these hunts is like nothing else. It’s been the best we could of asked for and then some. We took the morning off while my buddy went back out. We did some scouting this afternoon and think we found a herd for tomorrow to go after with him along with trying to fill our deer tags. More to come
    • Looks great. Whats with the tray of rabbit food there? 😅
    • Gold finches are still hanging on. All juveniles though. Actually had a red winged blackbird at my feeder yesterday. 
    • So, I guess the show has a new director, and she wasn’t a big fan of how the show would drag certain things on. That’s why she hung Gregory in the first episode. Apparently she’s the reason Rick will only have 2 more episodes left. She’s not even going to drag out his demise. I like it!
    • Last batch of the season. I picked the rest of the unripe jalapenos for poppers. It sure was a great year for the garden. Just have some carrots and beets left. 
    • Oh - so that's what happens when a pike hits the camera.  Neat.  Thanks for sharing.
    • Congrats and that sure is a beaut!
