Hi tube, rest easy, I got lucky. Prolly be much slower this seasen due to personal comittments. Hope all is well with you. My biggest gripe is that NASCAR.com went into the toilet and doesn’t look like it will heal.

Oath Keepers has surpassed it's fund raising target of $30,000 before the May 1, 2013 midnight deadline, for the June 1, 2013 NASCAR race at Dover. The Oath Keepers car will be driven by Oath Keepers supporter and Patriot, Jeffrey Earnhardt.

Who: Oath Keepers / Jeffrey Earnhardt

What: Public Awareness Campaign to bring the Oath Keepers’ message to the NASCAR audience and general public by running a NASCAR race car driven by Jeffrey Earnhardt. Oath Keepers is asking like-minded Americans to donate to get the Oath Keepers race car on the track and get our message about defending the Constitution out to millions.

Where & When: Dover International Speedway Dover, DE. Saturday, June 01 02:30 PM ET - TV: ESPN – Radio: MRN. The television audience is 1.5 million people average for this race (Should exceed this number with the move from ESPN2 to ESPN), Race attendance for the NNS race will be 40,000 people. Jeffrey will also do media promoting the Oath Keepers message leading into the race weekend, reaching millions more. In addition, the social media push using the Earnhardt brand will get attention and help spread the Oath Keepers message to millions prior to the race.

WHY: To get the message out to the public that our Constitution is at risk and those of us who took the Oath to protect and defend it cannot sit quietly by while it’s dismantled. There are millions of veterans and active duty NASCAR fans who need to hear our message about their oath responsibilities. Jeffrey Earnhardt is an American patriot who gets it and wants to do what he can to help carry the message.

”Oath Keepers are those who stepped forward, raised their hand and are willing to die to protect and defend our Constitution; that means everything to me and I’m honored to be a part this.” – Jeffrey Earnhardt

RECAP: Jeffery Earnhardt will take a stand for liberty on June 1st by driving the Oath Keepers car at Dover Delaware . We need you to help us put the car on the track.
This car represents the values we share as Americans who stand ready to defend the constitution at all costs. Oath Keepers is comprised of active duty military, police, veterans, first responders, and any freedom loving American who shares the enlightened vision of the founding fathers. Your donation will speak loudly to all the foes of our Republic, both foreign and domestic, so please be as generous as you can to help preserve the liberty we cherish.

NOTE FROM STEWART RHODES, FOUNDER OF OATH KEEPERS:
This is a rare opportunity to bring the Oath Keepers message to millions of NASCAR fans. Many of them are veterans, and there are also a large number of active duty military who watch NASCAR. Jeffrey Earnhardt comes from a legendary family of racers, and we are most honored that he has stepped up to help us defend the Constitution. He brings great credit to his family and to his sport by doing this, and he deserves our full support. All donations go directly to getting this car on the track. It will take $30,000.00 to get it done, but I am confident that with your help, we can do it. This is the first of what we hope will be many races run with an Oath Keepers car. The potential exposure is in the tens of millions. This could help make Oath Keepers a household name, and help to spread our message about the oath to millions of Americans who may not yet be fully awake to the ongoing assault on our Bill of Rights, and the rapidly increasing destruction of our Republic. You know how late the hour is. Help us awaken the “Sleeping Giant.” And besides, just imagine Mark Potok’s face when he sees this car on the track. Priceless! - For the Republic, Stewart Rhodes (U.S. Army Airborne disabled Veteran, Yale Law graduate, and Founder of Oath Keepers).

It was 13 degrees here yesterday morning but our “wall of water” plant protector kept the one garden tomato warm and cozy. With the nice weather here it’s time to fly -

Just got in from cleaning snow out of the DirecTV and Hughes Net dishes, shoveled off the solar hot water panels, walkway, driveway and Toyota 4Runner (Beyonce). I estimate 18 inches of snow.

Hate to rub it in but its been 75-80 in n.e. Fl. for a while now. We might even have to break down and close the windows and use the AC this weekend.

I think this snow should have finished off any snowpack shortages that were left with those numbers. I think I read one that was still low near RMNP, but others were at average or above.

My indoor/outdoor thermometer shows that the low last night was 8F. It is already up to 48F right now. Had the wood burning stove fireplace insert running full blast so it was warm and toasty in the living room.

Central Oregon has the longest winters but the summers are 2nd to none. Moderate temps, very low humidity and it always cools off into the 40’s at night. I could take your heat but the humidity would do this dog in.

Latest update on my new car is that it will arrive in the Port of Houston on May 17 and maybe another 10 days for delivery and dealer prep. Took happydogx2’s advice and am getting the windshield coating to protect against rock chips and the front hood and under the door handle film application to prevent chips and scratches. Need to go to the dealer to drop off a check so it clears before the car arrives...no car payments for me:) The number of S6 models coming in is really small and the prices have gotten crazy since I put my deposit down.

Yeah, the heat/humidity is bad but on the other hand it does keep the yankees out of the state for a few months out of the year.

I have a 1995 Buick Regal. Love it. Scraping snow off of the windshield yesterday morning and there was a nice crack right by the rearview mirror. Bummer. Nearly 20 years old, and just got a crack. Never saw the little chip that started it.

I had the 4Runner windshield replaced about a year ago because it had so many cracks. I already have 3 or 4 chips in the new one and one formed a crack that is already 2/3 of the way across the width of the windshield.

Two of the four thermometers in the vast Bender garden read 79 degrees, two were 98 and one was 105. The humility dropped to 28% about 3 PM

Hey, you can’t fool me. I went to a Catholic school. That’s FIVE thermometers. Our neighbors that moved to Brookings have got to be loving this.

I’m going to Traegerize a large Salmon filet for the race on Sunday. 3 hours on “smoke” using mesquite chips. Have I always drooled like this??

I need to plant potatoes this weekend. The snow prevented the ground from freezing. The shoots are coming up about a foot long so they are getting restless. Forgot what variety I got....maybe Hash Browns.

I need help from a aviation expert to identify the really noisy plane that flew over the Vast Bender Estate yesterday afternoon. It was a BIG 4 engine jet with swept wings and a weird (to me) tail configuration that looked like it would break off in turbulence...

Here is a story from the Richmond paper about the attendance problem at RIR. From the TV it looked about half full last Saturday. Used to sell out at 115,000.

That would have been something to see but the tail is wrong. I had a feeling the plane we saw was semi vintage and was flying lower then the commercial planes fly.

If you add a supercharger to your Challenger drag car, will you also add an intercooler? Looking at Challengers, I did not see big hood scoops even on supercharged cars for intrrcooler air flow. Can you put an intercooler up front behind the radiator? It seems you would run a supercharger from a belt off the front of the engine so a front-mounted intercooler would be short plumbing.

Was yours the SRT8 Hemi version?

Here's a good vid of how the style I'll use is put together, notice the manifold contains the inter-cooler and plumbing for the fuel rails.

I'll prolley go with Whipple, Hennessy or Magnuson

and no, though I have some 6.1 parts (which was the SRT option in '10) on mine it's an R/T (5.7)
