Sunday afternoon race!
Sunday afternoon race. Sorry for being late this week, so busy! Fantasy picks are due overnight!
Snow is almost melted here after one of our biggest snow totals for the season!
And still grumbling about that NRA 500...
My Penske boys really have their work cut out for them. It’s gonna be tough at Kansas. A long, green, follow the leader race. Oy. I’m not really looking forward to this one.
Perfect napping opportunity. I am pretty good at waking up when the announcers change their voice.
Although, I am still mad at Fox and Nascar over the last race, so I won’t be watching.
Hopefulling the new gen 6 car can do some passing, but I don’t expect any sort of real competition or excitement.
6 races into the season and I’m already 300 points behind in the FReeper league...
Sigh, I am last place. I missed the first race, so that doesn’t help. Forgot to change my drivers last week, not that it would have made a difference. Had Jeff Gordon for two races, and he was oh so close for two races...
Got about three feet of snow last week. Had to drive to Colorado Springs two days during storma. Lots of people driving way too fast and sliding off the road. Lots of rollovers including one SUV that was going so fast it rolled for about 100 yards.
Hope they don’t have any tornadoes in Kansas. We all know how that works out!
Thank you for the thread.
We’ll watch the recorded race late Sunday afternoon. Seems like there’s twice as much to do this Spring and only half the time to do it. Nice weather is on tap for next week and the week after. Bout time after all the late season snow.
Will you tell your little FRiend in Coolorado that I met Glenda the Wicked Witch of the Midwest when I was putting the garbage can out Wednesday...
DRAT!!! foiled again...
I got 5, :-). But wow.
I think we got close to that. It is hard to tell, Monday morning it was melting as fast as it fell, but even then, when I left for work, the snow was 3-4” deep. Dug car out after work. Dug car out next morning. By the time I got home Weds night, I think I had 12-14” of snow sitting on ground.
He probably knows Glenda’s gone. When it gets colder than a witches t-t in those rockies witches tend to fly to a more moderate climate. She didn’t cast a spell on you, did she??
I thought Glenda went to Hawaii for winter. Maybe she was coming back and got tired and looked for the nearest witch landing pad. By some coincidence, Tubebender must have a witch landing pad next to his compost pile.
Have never seen Glenda in Hawaii but have seen the compost pile in question. Btn the heat and smell of said pile I’m betting Glenda has never made it any further SW.
Kenseth on the pole. The force is with the Toyota’s this year. The #2 team gets whacked big time for questionable parts issues but not the drivers mouth. Denny Hamlin can’t believe it after his fine. If I don’t spend some time on research when I pick my drivers I’m gonna get whacked too. It could be that when you’ve been to the top of the mountain you lose the desire to climb again and speaking of cars we might take the 335i on our 4 day business trip on Monday. Weather is supposed to be good; my only issue is the ROCK left over on the pass roadway. Department of Transportation uses for the snow and ice. It’d destroy that paint and window on the BMW in a heartbeat if another car or truck kicked it up. I think I’m talking myself outa taking it.
One of our neighbors just sold their house and moved out yesterday. They’re moving to Brookings!! They took my advice (why I don’t take my own advice I’m not sure) and sold at the high end of the market here and bought in the economically depressed Curry County area. I told them to buy about 2 miles up the Chetco River and not on the coast. I also told them where you were and said they could take anything from your garden they wanted since your dog is only half bark and no bite. They ride BMW motorcycles and he is bald w/a ring in his ear. Seriously.
Has anyone gotten 19 Q points before?
We have big problems with rocks and gravel here. I have never had a windshield last even a year without getting cracked. Trying to figure out what to do with the Audi to reduce this.
I have Weather Tech floor mats for the S6 that arrived yesterday. They look really well made. The Audi is still a month away from arriving by ship in Houston.
Sorry about that triple post.
Why yes, yes they (several) have. Aren’t you on that roster? I’m not.
Arrgh! After 8 hours of hard labor yesterday I got cleaned up & we took the 335 out for a drive out Hwy 20 E of Bend. Only high-desert and antelope out there. Had a great time - top down - 60 degrees, minimum traffic and it was a hoot. Got back into town and 1/2 mile from the house a couple of cars passed by going in the opposite direction. “Smack” like a rifle shot. One of the cars threw a rock (I’m still not sure how) and it hit the windshield on the drivers side. Didn’t crack but I’ve got two large pits. Very much a freak accident. I’m sick.
We had two products put on my wife’s X-1. One is the “Dura Shield” which is that invisible film that goes on the vehicle. Helps prevent rock dings on the cars body. The other product, which I’m not sure of the legitimacy or effectiveness, is called “Crystal Fusion” which is for the window. It’s a five hundred dollar treatment and this is from their website:
What Crystal Fusion Does for Your Windshield
Enables glass to resist costly chips and cracks
Night driving is easier, with reduced glare
Snow and ice are easier to remove
Cleaning is fast and effective
Protects against acid rain, corrosion and mineral buildup
Water runs off instantly
Improves clarity and visibility to extend driver reaction time
I have all season tires on the Toyota 4Runner. The tread picks up pea-sized stones like crazy. I pry them out with an old screwdriver, but it picks up more so fast. I am sure there are lots of stone slinger tires out there.
Well, I’ll be able to see the start, but then it’s off to church. Probably be back in time for the finish.
My buddy that trucks out of Mile high, says he’s been gettin blasted hard over there with snow for the last 2 weeks, is he right or just a whiny truck driver?
It snowed alot last week. I had to drive to Colorado Springs two days in it. Wrecks everywhere. Got about 3 feet at my house. A bad avalanche at Loveland Ski Area yesterday. It was about 500 yards wide and killed 5 skiers. That ski resort is the 2nd closest one to where I live. I can see the slopes of Eldora Ski Resort right now out of the back windows
We rarely get to see starts w/living on the west coast w/church on Sunday. It’s way we record the races and watch at a later time.
Back from church and watching. Oh, and church was good today.
Fast Kasey ALMOST does it....but the winnah is Matt Kenseth!!
Good race! MotoGP from Texas was exciting too.
Big screen HD television has really made watching sports awesome.
We’re in Florence Oregon. Beautiful day. Minimal wind, no clouds & close to 70 degrees. Hope you’re getting some of this. New deck & pergola should be done by the time we get back Thursday night. Just in time for the nice weather.
My daughter, her husband and 4 other couples spent Friday, Saturday and Sunday camping at Gold Beach. She said it was extremely windy just like it was here. Much better today with 65 in the garden and very little wind and no clouds...
Ginormous penalties for Gibbs and Kenseth.
