Ping! Full weekend of racing ahead.

And I think most of us have seen and commented on this thread: Why Brickyard 400 Winner Newman is Only $423,033 Richer.

Oh, one beat you. But definitely beat those central and east people!

Liking the weather? This has been an almost perfect CO summer. My pansies (flowers) are in heaven. Never seen them so big, plentiful, and colorful.

I think he should be banned as all he does is sit around in his underwear waiting for the new threads and then we never see him again until the next race.

But I degrease...

Here’s some pics of the Nascar “air force”

I know Obama doesn’t like folks zipping around in private jets (unless of course they contribute to his campaign), but mouse over the pic to see who’s on board.

Anybody else remember the 70s “fuel crisis” when the feds wanted to shut down Nascar and Big Bill France pointed out that the airplane fuel used by baseball and football to travel dwarfed what was used on Sunday races...

Here’s what Tony Stewart does during the week in summer.
The guy can be rather prickly at times, but there’s no doubt he’s a wheel man supreme.

Surely you aren’t talking bout me cause I wear my J.J. jammies when I’m on this thread.

I wonder what the chance of rain is on Sunday at the Poconos. I’ll watch the race but I’ll have to record it due to family events.

Finally dug up my garlic. Not much gardening done this year cause of MIL’s illness. Maybe next year.

A friend of mine sold his auto repair shop and home here in Benderville and he and his wife moved to Charlotte NC to be near their son who won the first Allan Kulwicki scholarship to the school of Engineering at the University of North Carolina a few years ago. MY friend landed a dream job working for Humpy Wheeler at Charlotte Motor Speedway building those crazy flame throwing monsters at the track and he also designed the Thunder Roadsters and small Legend Cars.

Humpy asked him to build a 1939 Ford coupe hot rod that was feathered in one of the rodding magizines and has won several awards…

Well how cool is that and we love our son dearly but I wouldn’t sell everything to move to Charlotte NC to be near him.

Sorry about the rust issue but the question must be asked: On you or in the garden??

You got me curious now. I wonder how many serious and talented drivers there are for every seat in a cup, nationwide or truck vehicle?

The NASCAR 2013 year calendar has J.J. as their (fully dressed) Mr. August and the Trans Siberian Orchestra just announced their winter tour dates. Where the heck has this year gone??

Autoweeks most recent issue had their main story on the Corvette C7. It sounded like they were very impressed that Corvette finally put great seats in (that will hold you in place when it pulls over 1g on the skid pad) and they liked the view out of the lowered hood line and they thought the handling was great. Just wondering if you saw it.

In a year of poor driver choices and not the best luck the 1-5 start is a nice shot in the arm. Of course the obese lady has yet to sing....

Checking in. mrs p6 and I were at the Great Lakes Medieval fest yesterday until later so we're really tired today.

In the pre-race They have the gal commentator and when I tuned in it went to a segment on Danica.

OK. I think I got across to mrs p6 what rubs me the wrong way about women doing sports anouncing and Danica.

Really I wish them the best however what it made me think of was how mrs p6 and her book club would like for me to sit in each week.

Would probably have on an old NASCAR, Harley or Uncle Si t-shirt. Maybe sloshing down brews, burping and smoking a cigar.

Think they ladies club would be offended?

But of course that's different...sigh.

JJ leading again! Its amazing how he drives to the front and stays there every race. I heard he is so much better then the other slugs that he actually eases up otherwise he would lap everyone.

Hopefully there is a young generation being raised on dirt that will be crazy enough to drive as fast as he does.

I think because of the SAFER barriers, head restraints, and latest generation of cars being well designed for crash safety, you’re seeing bunches of older guys able to stick around a long time.

I think the number of available slots at the bottom is currently less than it has been historically.
