This is not a High Volume Ping List and is intended primarily to alert folks of the posting of the weekly Nascar qualifying and race threads.
Occasional sports or military or prayers Pings using the list may also be sent as situation or subject dictates.
Profanities, flame wars and belligerence in observing common sense rules and family decency standards on the thread may result in serious sanctions so be nice. :-)
Dover thread is up
Thanks for the bumps!
Were y’all anticipating? ;)
Where is Junior going to end up? My dad thinks it is all a publicity stunt.
Going to the out-house in the league. Gor Don did me in last week.
I was channel surfing and ran across Norms post... :)
I picture Junior owning DEI or at Childress. I don’t see him anywhere else. Too bad he can’t take the 8 number with him. :(
THX for the ping.
The Armadillo Wreckers crashed and burned big time last week also!
ABG anybody but gordon.His luck has turned for the worse.Go ROUSCH!and JR.
As you already know, I am but a peripheral fan.
What is/are the major difference/s between the Busch Series cars and Nextel Cup cars?
Currently, the three top series — Nextel Cup, Busch and Craftsman Truck — run a 12:1 compression ratio. That rule went into effect during the 2001 season. They all use cast-iron, 5.7-liter V8 engines with aluminum cylinder heads, and each engine has a maximum displacement of 358 cubic inches.
But the main difference among the Cup, Busch and truck engines is the size of the carburetors — 830 cubic feet per minute (cfm) in Cup and 390 cfm for Busch and trucks — which allows a richer air-fuel mixture in Nextel Cup. According to the NASCAR media guide, the torque is 550 feet per pound at 7,500 RPM for Cup, 535 feet per pound at 6,500 RPM for Busch and 535 feet per pound at 6,500 RPM for trucks. That gives the engines the ability to produce horsepower in the range of 850 at 9,000 RPM for Cup, 750 at 8,400 RPM for Busch and 750 at 8,400 RPM for trucks.
Thanks for stop’n by. An easy analogy would be Jr. Varsity Vs. Varsity. Older drivers with more Horsepower rides that for some still like ta mix it up with the young’ns fer various reasons. Big differences in prize money also.
Thank you! :-)
Speeds in both races seemed to be pretty close in my estimation.
Thanks, thread looks great.
