Yahoo Power Rankings
http://sports.yahoo.com/nascar/nextel/powerrankings;_ylt=ApqmvCMeRB5YXAG6BqZc_vfov7YF?race=21
1. Jeff Burton - Sure, the key now is simply to not mess it up, but Burton and Co. put themselves in that position with some terrific performances.
2. Matt Kenseth - We admit, it was tempting to skip the No. 2 spot again this week. But a hot No. 17 team still would be within striking distance.
3. Kevin Harvick - He's got his Busch championship; can a Cup title follow? Maybe, but this team's sub-top 10 finishes need to disappear fast.
4. Dale Earnhardt Jr. - What a difference a third place at Talladega would have made. It's too bad, as Junior seems to be turning it on when it counts.
5. Mark Martin - He'd be second on this list if not for the wreck with J.J. Yeley. This team can be streaky; it must hope a bad streak didn't just begin.
6. Jimmie Johnson - What a difference a win or second place at Talladega would have made. Is too much faith being put in the 48's comeback ability?
7. Kasey Kahne - How to execute an unlikely comeback? It starts with back-to-back finishes of second and first. There still is a very long way to go.
8. Denny Hamlin - It was a gutsy effort just to finish 28th after wrecking Saturday at Lowe's, but his Chase finishes have been getting worse every week.
9. Brian Vickers - If he and the No. 25 car had been putting together streaks like this all year, would Vickers be sticking with Hendrick Motorsports in 2007?
10. Carl Edwards - Edges Bobby Labonte and Kyle Busch here. Hot streak surprising because 99 hasn't been doing it all year. Labonte, meanwhile, is ready for '07.

I bought a like new 1,000 watt Honda Generator last week for $450 for short duration power outages which we get each winter. I plan to buy a 5,000 watt unit before we have the big earthquake or worse yet, a ice storm due to global swarming and have a switch installed at the meter. Someone told me they just have a double male extension cord and plug it into the dryer outlet and they turn the main circuit breaker off so they don't feedback into the system and fry a lineman or two...

3 All New 2007 Ford Championship Level Pace Cars Unveiled

Three “championship-level” 2007 Ford vehicles – the Ford Shelby GT500, Ford Edge and Ford F-150 FX2 Sport – have been selected to pace the three Ford Championship Weekend races at Homestead-Miami Speedway, site of NASCAR’s season-ending events.

Dan Davis, director of Ford Racing Technology; Curtis Gray, president of Homestead-Miami Speedway; and Matt Kenseth, the 2003 NASCAR Nextel Cup champion and a contender for this year’s title, were all on hand at the race track today to help unveil the three pace vehicles in a ceremony before open NASCAR testing at the track.

“We wanted to select championship level production vehicles to pace the Ford Championship Weekend, and we picked three of the best,” said Davis, in making the announcement. “When you talk about vehicles that combine bold design and the kind of performance needed to lead the NASCAR field on track, these three vehicles are the place to start.”

Sweet!

I always thought the 68 Shelby (won a few trophies in one in my college days) and the 68 Talladega Torino were the nastiest lookin Fords ever built. I may have to reconsider that opinion.

Sounds like a good plan. You will need an external connection point to plug yer generator into the house.

I'd avoid the suicide cord tho, unless yer really carefull.
And that method is only practical if ya have a 220 volt dryer. Otherwise only half of the electric panel will be fed.

Since most generators are tuned to provide 125 volts of quasi electricity ya have ta be carefull of usage and application. Most electronic devices aint too keen on that waveform unless they use an AC adapter. A microwave oven will groan unless most of the big stuff is off.

A 5K watt generator will provide a max of 40 amps of power. So check the rating tags on yer appliances and add up the essentials. My suggestion is not to exceed 75% of capacity.

Never run the generator in an attached garage and never in the rain unless it's covered with an old card table or such.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for putting up this weeks race Steve.

Martinsville, crash bangfest!!

Here is one of Jr's friends ideas during the XM show last night. Jr was not there because they tape on Tuesday and he was in Homestead testing.




All cars should be painted black and then peel the number off at the end to see who won. They think it will help with TV ratings. LOL

Morning!

just sentimental I guess, besides there is a shortage of quality competitive drivers in NNC.

I heard on WFO last night if he performs well he could be a contender for the 88, or the remaining red bull ride.

not to say Ward would win many but he'd definitely spice things up.

I'd vote to put him in the 88 and hope yates could sway Caterpillar for a sponsorship...

I just enjoy hearing Ward say Cattapilla

I Can't Cope puts Stuntman on the bubble with a 93.387 (27th of 28, 7th of 8 field-fillers). That puts Kvawful in the show.
Flipper 13th of 29 with a 95.680

What's a "buble"?

Crash 13th of 32 - 95.733
Rubberhead knocks Flash off the pole - 97.568
Hurricane Hambone assaults the field, front row barely survives as 97.187 is good for 3rd of 34
Robot 13th of 35 with a 95.942. Let's hope he brought some good brakes this weekend.

Found out from Jayski why MM hasn't qualified yet; he wrecked in practice and went to a backup.

Yellers 26th of 36 - 95.290
Nesquik not so quick - 96.078 puts him 11th of 37
Lepage knocks out Shepherd, puts The Other Sadler on the bubble and puts Herm in the show with a 94.851 (33rd of 38, 6th of 11 field-fillers)
Shrub 10th of 39 - 96.171
MM, qualifying for pit and lane selection only, qualifies 18th of 40 - 95.752 (will be headed to the back after going to a backup car)

Jeff Green steps it up - 96.627 puts him 7th of 41
Happy threw away lap 1, gathers it up for 10th of 42 (96.317) on lap 2
The Other Kyle puts himself into the show, knocks out The Other Sadler and puts No Bliss on the bubble with a 96.205 (12th of 43, 1st among the 12 field-fillers)
Christopher needn't have brought Captain Kirk's machine out; 92.801 (42nd of 44, 11th of 13 field-fillers) puts himself out of the show and Ragan in. Bliss remains on the bubble, and Lepage also remains nervous as Skinner and Chaffin remain to go among the field-fillers.

The ex-97 troubles continue - McMary puts the 26 21st of 46.
Skinner barely skins Bliss from the show with a 94.846 (40th of 46, 8th of 14 field-fillers). It's down to Skinner and Chaffin.
Speaking of Chaffin, he misses the show with a 93.682 (43rd of 47, 11th of 15 field-fillers). That concludes the field-filler portion of qualifying with The Other Kyle, Kvawful, Mikey, Suthurn Burton, The Funny Wallace, Ragan, Lepage and Skinner making it, and Bliss, The Other Sadler, Chaffin, Grampa Shepherd, Christopher, I Can't Cope and Stuntman loading up and leaving today.
