Here’s a story on some Nascar windshield testing.

Firing filled aluminum beverage cans at the windshield @ 200 mph.

Is that Chris Paulsen from C&R Racing? My buddy's kid works for them here in Indy. (They make most of the Nas radiators and a bunch of other stuff).

How did they get the flyover when Daytona was “sequestered” out, LOL.

Been a tad busy with contractors. Lotsa stuff going on including this dog quitting smoking. Day 2 was a real pain in the patoot.

They mentioned at the race that it would be the last flyover. Them there are the Thunderbirds and it’s a damn shame that this country is so screwed up we can’t even have a plane or two fly over a race a couple of dozen times a year.

I understand that a private collector is going to do a fly-over at Texas. Don’t know what kinda plane. I have no idea what the plan is for California...

The NRA needs to bankroll a flyover (with appropriate towed banners) for the Texas race.

Nice job, again...

Not sure if I’ll be around yet, going to Mopar at the track, in LV with the local club to see what kinda times my Challenger will run.

Hoping for high 11’s but will be happy with a 12.06

Have a great race if we’re not back in time...

I store my photos on Flickr for posting using HTML and they have changed their format so I can’t find the “address location”. Has anyone else had this problem and is there a way around it?

I did this by right clicking on my image, choosing the size (medium, I think). When the image opened, I right clicked and chose "copy image location." Using Waterfox.

I use the "share" menu above the photo in Flickr then you can pick your size photo then copy and paste the link.

I didn't get 19 points but I'm sure someone did.

It’s not Spring here unless lows in the teens and high’s in the 30’s counts. We’re ready to BB Cue but thought we’d hold off one more weekend for some warmer temps.

That has got to be a pricy rig with all the stainless on it.

Both Kez and Biffle blew engines yesterday and could Kyle Busch be on a better streak??

Made a command decision to park the Fords today. Only upper 70’s for Fontana today but after Ford teams losing 2 engines yesterday I’d rather be safe then sorry. Church, nap & chomping chili chow w/recorded race later this afternoon.

Sigh. I liked the site last year. I could quickly see all of the races, etc, lineups, winners. Ugh. I wish they would fix it. I was thinking maybe it was optimized for smartphones/tablets. But no, just terribly.
