Seems like the key to qualifying was going early before the track got to hot.

They showed a jump of 20 degrees or more in track temp in a short period of time, Mark ran real early when the track was cool.. most of my picks are top 10-15 for now..

I got him this week so I could use the 10 FRFL points and more hopefully..

Bill Elliot got a standing ovation for his lap. And he did it later on in the qualifying.

Argh. Kenseth got in Steven Wallace’s way. If he hadn’t blocked so aggressively, I think Wallace might have been able to pass Kyle, and cut into that points lead. Oh, well.

I think it had more to do with you paying your dues. I had a great time at the car show today in Fortuna, just a few miles south of Eureka and 15 degrees warmer...

Twasn’t that, I paid early!

Worked on my old truck today, think it’s a fuel pump.
Good news, it’s electric, mounted on the frame. Bad news, may have to drop the front tank to disconnect the four fuel lines. :(

Project for another day.

My 99 Silverado has a intermittent fuel gauge problem. Remedy? Replace the sending unit.. after you drain and drop the tank. Cost? Lots as it comes aS a assembly of sending unit and Fuel Pump. FOR EVERYTHING ELSE THERE IS MASTER CARD!

Now I know why First Wife stopped consummin red wine 50 years ago! I will confront her with this study when she gets home from Church.

No, we will leave about noonish. The fire near the lake has been knocked down so the cabin is still accesible. Fishing report as of 7-22 is they’re bit’n most excellently.

If’n I start watching the race we won’t leave until it’s over so I’m recording it and hoping for the best.

BTW, we tied w/qualifying points. :(

I’m going with my best group - J.J./Stewart/Newman/’Brose.

I’ll think of ya -

Did the same thing with My Chevy Surb over a year ago, also a 99. Once you’ve replaced it wait a couple months and you’ll start hearing a “new” noise. It the fuel pump, they say it’s fine but it makes a ton of noise.
