New Hampshire has always been my favorite track. I love the setting, the track surrounded by the mountains. Sure, Bristol and Richmond are fun to watch. But New Hampshire is just ideally scenic.

Very nice open for the thread and the Chase guys.
*****************************
Towers of Life

They stood hushed and glimmering in the night,
Giants able to frame the moon,
Slumbering magnificently in their might.

Day breaks and the sun gently warms their skin,
Veins begin to pulse with life,
The sprit of a thousand of kin.

Evil tears towards them through the brilliant morning sky,
Propelled by the blackest of hate,
Guided by a lie.

Barely risen they stand with no defense,
Innocent and distracted they are not prepared,
The pain about to be inflicted intense.

Like a bolt of lighting that shatters the morn,
Evil crashes once then twice into their sides,
Their bodies are scorched and torn.

Horribly crippled they continue to stand,
Holding onto life until the last,
Orders are given, they take the command.

The battle is brief, the giants begin to yield,
Life drains from every artery,
Their fate is sealed.

Collapsing to zero,
First to one knee then to the next,
From their dust will emerge so many a hero.

The question is asked,
How can such evil exist.

pool?

He’s out of the chase so the engines should be fine from here on /sarc

Talladega testing continues - with tweaks
SCENEDAILY - 1:28PM ET TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 11, 2007 - BY KENNY BRUCE - ASSISTANT MANAGING EDITOR

TALLADEGA, Ala. - Tuesday’s early-morning speeds were much slower as NASCAR’s Nextel Cup Series teams hit the track with a slightly different package for the second day of testing of the car of tomorrow at Talladega Superspeedway.

Changes included the use of a smaller restrictor plate - 31/32nds of an inch instead of the 1-inch plate used on Monday - and a reduction in the height of the wicker on top of the rear wing - from 1 1/4 inches to 1 inch.

We can make the cars go 190 on average with no plates, but once the cars are running together, they’d be way over 200 mph,” said Penske Racing driver Ryan Newman. “There’s a happy medium NASCAR is looking for, and I’m fully aware of that.”

This whole thing isn't even funny anymore - I heard some idiot on one of the sports channels saying that Junior pushed his engines too hard, and I'm thinking "if he was lapping the entire field, sure he might be pushing the engines too hard, but he was just trying to finish in the top 10, how is that pushing your engines too hard".

I don't think it was a conspiracy, because with Junior out of the Chase, that means Truex has to go it alone, something that will be difficult. While they've written off Junior, Truex is going to be the franchise player next year.

I think it's incompetence somewhere. If Junior is truly getting the same engines that Menard and Truex are, then something is up. Somebody, somewhere does not know what they are doing.

Like I said elsewhere, Junior is too nice of a guy at times - his dad would have been showing some people the door if he had 6 blown engines through 2/3 of the season.

I don't read David Poole all that often, but he had a good column posted on TR today, Toyota and Gibbs operation have the same goal: winning races and I like the fact that he is speaking the truth:

Make no mistake, however, this was the true beginning of the manufacturer’s foray into NASCAR’s top series. Toyota participated in Nextel Cup in 2007. In 2008, it starts competing.

There’s no kind way to say this, but if the teams using Toyotas this year were building Fords, Chevrolets or Dodges, they’d struggle, too. Michael Waltrip Racing and Team Red Bull started from scratch, and Bill Davis Racing had been wandering in a NASCAR purgatory until it actually got to start racing Camrys in 2007.


I like Michael Waltrip and his bunch, but they have got some serious management problems, and I think the stress has affected him on the track (and off).

Toyota hit the jackpot with JGR, and JGR got what it wanted - to be the top team for a manufacturer, something it couldn't get at GM or Ford.

Infield Parking has a free Chase Fantasy Game

http://www.infieldparking.com/

With the 2007 season winding down, we thought we’d have a little fun with the chase. This game is easy to play, and it’s free! Grand prize winner will receive 4 All-Access Pit Passes and Tickets for 4 to the race of their choice in 2008.

Top 10 runners up will receive a prize pack from Harley Davidson & Infield Parking.

BTW What race would everyone choose to go to if they won?

I’m thinking Daytona.

Hornish to run at NHIS in #06: Sam Hornish Jr., driver of the #06 Penske Truck Rental Dodge Avenger, will attempt to make his Nextel Cup Series debut at New Hampshire on Sunday in the Car of Tomorrow. This is Hornish’s first run at the 1.058-mile oval. Although Hornish’s 2008 plans have not been determined, the 28-year-old will attempt to qualify for no more than seven events, including each of the five remaining COT races with Roy McCauley leading the charge taking chassis PRS-512 to this weekend’s Sylvania 300.

It would be a tough decision.

I doubt I can win, it’s one of those salary cap games and I haven’t done well with those.

Bristol would also be a great choice.

It’s the pit passes that entice me. :)

Also....I have no reason to stay up for this but some may be interested.

The top-12 drivers will appear on The Late Show with David Letterman on Wednesday, September 12, 11:35pm/et on CBS.(9-11-2007)

Oh, yea. Up until last year I was really bummed about the pit pass thing at LVMS - had to be 18 yrs of age...the boy.

Then some brainiac thunk up the Neon Garage idea...and the world was right again!

Pit passes are still separate purchase, but I - and the boy - are less than 10 ft from where that ticket holder is. And I can see the front end of the garage stall, about 12" away (with my nose pressed against the glass!), and they can't!

I saw that, I’m glad they both got rides this week.

Hornish is interesting to me in that I’m wondering how he will do starting Nascar in the COT of all things.

There’s been a little scuttlebutt that Stremme may be gone early so Dar-Ash can get used to the car this year.

And Ambrose should have a ride from Crash at Dover.

I read the article. While the author obviously likes JG, he does make a good point or two.

BUT....pretty much the same with the NFL, isn't? You can be undefeated in the regular season, lose the next game and you go home. No respect for the undefeated regular season performance.

Or the year Smoke did not make it, lack luster during the first 26 races, does not make the chase, then wins, what - 3 races in the final 10?

I think it's a stretch to say that JG was / will be again robbed. Everybody knows the rules. Who can make it happen when it counts the most?

It takes a whole lot to win a Cup championship, perhaps more so than any other sport.....you win 4 games in the NFL and you be the King....4 games in the NBA, etc.

A recent article suggested the Chase be limited to 5 or 6 drivers........??

I do think they need to change the qualification criteria for the top 10 12, though.....you have to have a win to get in.

The Chase does make it interesting, unlike the Busch series where a driver can run away with it (even miss a race or two) and win.

A line has to be drawn somewhere. IMHO, I think the latest set of qualifications to enter the Chase seem to be fair.

And now that it has begun it will be interesting to see who will be the biggest whinner. I vote for the elder shrub.

DirecTV really gave me the beak, when ever KUBU is on, I can't lock out the channel so as not to hit it by mistake.

Apologies in advance to the KUBU fan out there....

Never been a fan of the chase. Even though I am a Jeff Gordon fan and he would have had his FIFTH championship the first year of it's inception, the rules are all the same for every driver and we all knew that going in.

If you look at it, it doesn't make sense. In other sports playoffs, only those that get to the finals get to play. That's not the case with Nascar. All teams are still involved and someone not even close, can take out the points leader. The alternative of only having 10-12 cars on the track for the final races would be far too boring (read IROC).

The chase places far too much emphasis on the last 10 races, they're suddenly more important than the first ten, but only to the 10-12 in the finals. What the hell about the other 30-odd drivers, sponsors, and fans?

Championships should reflect consistency and not come down to having one set of fans cheer the demise of another's driver.

I view it as another fix to a non existent problem. If a driver runs off with the points lead, then he deserves the championship.

Enough "rant of the day". :)

Toyota hit the jackpot with JGR, and JGR got what it wanted - to be the top team for a manufacturer

An old proverb: Be carefull of what you wish for!

I hope the JGR teams are still happy after the fisrt few weeks. My guess is that if Smoke ain't happy, nobody there is gonna be happy.

I don't care for the chase with previous 10 and now 12 racers.

They should have more underdogs in it. Not sure of the final number but 20 seems just about right for me.

Let's face it, week after week there are only about 20 that really have a chance. Jr. not being in it this year is silly (perfect example for 20).

How about a wild-card race before the Chase starts.

Any drivers from 13-20 that finish in the top five make the Chase.

That should create some mayhem & chaos!

Once I get over having picked the drivers (oh, the shame of it all) I'm thinkin beer butt chicken, grilled corn and tater salad. Oh, and homemade onion rings. With far sauce. Yep. Should be perfect deck weather this weekend. Now, just maybe mint juleps. Gotta run over to the brother's house and pick some fresh mint. Hey Pete, wanna julep? Chicken?

Onion ring?

If you can find this stuff, pour it into a stock pot of water and fill it with unhusked corn to let it soak in for an hour before ya put the corn on the grill. (with the husk)

Cook till all sides of the outer husk are burnt.
