This should be a great race (as long as JJ doesn’t win).
If you'd like ON or Off the Nascar at FR racing threads&stuff Ping List, let me know via Private Reply. Thanks!
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. :-)
This has nothing to do with NASCAR, but I must say that Kobalt Tools rock! I have been buying more of them since getting disappointed with others. I know, Kobalt, are Chinese made but they are high quality!
Flame away FR!
You’ve just won yourself one metric ton of okra!
Our Nigerian trade representative will be contacting you.
I grew up during the post war period when ‘japanese’ meant ‘junk.’
I drive a Toyota. Chinese tools went from so-so anvils to pretty sophisticated machinery and electronics, which would not have happened without western engineering and capitalization. We haven’t left the caveat emptor phase, as far as I’m concerned, but the US has given its manufacturing to the chinese (... and Mexicans and ...)
Hey, I’ve got a thread to post. BRB.
No race this week.
Camping World Truck Series:
Saturday 3/6 at Atlanta Motor Speedway on SPEED - 1:30 pm ET
LOL!! I even got here before Norm.
I’m so tired of curling. I’m ready for Boogity, Boogity, Boogity!
At least the weather here on the west side of the Rockies has become springlike... ya don’t have to shovel rain!
Things are looking up!
I sometimes wonder if we should pat you on the back like our crazy uncle in the attic and say, why yes, Tork, well done.
Thanks for hosting this weeks NASCAR thread!
I’m not sure what Atlanta is like but Tallahassee has upcoming freeze warnings. Should be a chilly track and great weather for fans.
ok mr glock. LAST!!!
It’s Tasmanian Salmon on Speed TV Grock...
