GM Funding

Recommended Posts

I did'nt want to steal another thread so I will start this one up.

With the news that GM will be cutting funding back and the thought that the JGR left Chevy to go to Toyota.....

Do you guy's think that Gibbs was given some insider info that GM would be cutting it's funding to Nascar teams?

I don't think it was to tough to figure out for Gibbs and everybody else that Yota has a lot more cash to throw away on Racing these days!

Yes I think it was all about the money!

When Honda comes in then you can expect other step-child teams to move to them.

You ahh better not mention that again.... J/K But seriously, we don't need Honda getting involved.

If Honda will pay Baby-France enough money they'll be there soon enough. All he cares about is short term gain without thinking how he's wrecking this great entity long term...

I wouldn't think there was any insider information at the time Gibbs switched. $4/gal gas is probably the biggest contributing factor in the downturn for the auto companies.

I was just wondering if it was used as a lure to get JGR to go with the Toyota's.

I wonder if Kia will pony up some cash and get involved next year? Just kidding.

Also consider that JGR was on the bottom of the totem pole w/ GM

Why would you say that? Besides Hendrick, Gibbs is the only other GM team to win a championship, 3 infact, in the past 10 years. I'd think they'd rank second on the list.

2nd or 3rd does it really matter? JGR would never have got the funding that Hendrick gets.

Now if GM could make some profits on the normal cars they sell.

In the long run I think the whole Toyota deal will force the other teams to improve.

    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme. 
    • New Ice shelter coming this fall from Otter and Polaris specifically made for full size Rangers.  This will be available through Polaris Dealers.   https://fishingminnesota.com/forums/topic/210952-new-ice-shelter-from-polaris-and-otter/    
    • Sure I do Dave. You take a lot of nasty old rotted left over wood from torn down houses or where ever else they scrape it up from?  Sweep it up off the floor and turn it into little compressed pellets usually for heating stoves, then Dave makes his food with it! 😜    
    • Because that's the technical term. I can't help it if you don't know what a pellet grill is or what it can do. I'm more than happy to educate you though.....     BTW, those St. Louis spare ribs were a 5-1/2 hour smoke.
