    Silly Season 2023

    Cry me a river of tears for KDB getting exactly what he deserved to get. After 15 years of bad attitude and constant boorish, petulant behavior... plus more than a few instances of dirty driving... I have no sympathy for Kyle being forced to sleep in the bed he made. Just my opinion, but not one...

    2 Time NASCAR Cup Series Champion Joey Logano!!!

    I've started threads before, asking why people dislike Joey so intensely. I never really got an answer that made any sense. The three most common answers... > Joey looks dorky. WTF? I didn't know it's a beauty pageant. > Logano lacks authenticity. This is pure rubbish. Joey is always smiling...

    Misc. Car Stuff

    This is a fabulous PBS News report. Thanks for posting it @StandOnIt. It casts an entirely new light (new to me) on these goofy - yet definitely artistic - cars. Props to PBS for their open-minded approach in this report.

    '21 Generation 7 Car news

    That's a really cheap shot right there, considering the COVID disruptions that affected the development cycle on the Next Gen car. The introduction was delayed just one year, but the development cycle was set back by a lot more than 12 months. Nobody wanted to delay the car a second year, for...

    Silly Season 2023

    It will be interesting to see if his role in Petty-GMS management is more similar to the Justin Marks role or the Pitbull role. As for the driving part, I agree with @wi_racefan... not interested in seeing a champion from the past hanging on too long trying to exploit the fame/celebrity earned...

    Ross Chastain is a Future Star

    I hear what you're saying, Turtle, but I disagree. The contact Allmendinger initiated was similar to what Brandon Jones did last Saturday to pass Ty Gibbs... rubbin' is racin' and Dinger even had the inside position in that corner. Dinger barely moved him. Minor incidental contact, a racing...

    Ross Chastain is a Future Star

    I've been a fan since 2019, the year after the DC Solar sponsorship imploded. Ross showed his grit and character by piecing together a schedule that included... 1. All the cup races, backmarker team. 2. Most of the Xfinity races, mostly backmarker. 3. All truck races, 2nd in championship. 4...

    Xfinity RACE thread --- Martinsville

    Actually, Kyle Busch said basically what you said on that "Race To The Championship" show that's airing on USA Network. I was surprised how candid and blunt he was in speaking about Coach Gibbs at two separate points in a recent episode. First he spoke about how Gibbs always told him he was...

    NASCAR Pick 'Em 2022 - Martinsville

    ^ Now I am completely embarrassed. You're a damn sight better at Commissionering than you are at comedy, I can tell you that! As for $10,000 fines, we are used to such trivial irritations at LewTheShoe Racing. A couple lugnuts here, a couple lugnuts there, it's nothing to a big time race team...

    NASCAR Pick 'Em 2022 - Martinsville

    I am sorry if I have violated some custom that I was not aware of... :dunce: To be honest, I don't know if you are joking, but if not then I appeal. First, I mentioned a minor "C" driver, in the 35th week, when every player's strategy is already firmly settled. Second, I agree there are...

    Xfinity RACE thread --- Martinsville

    WTF? This is a giant cop out by NASCAR. The sport is being overrun by the ethos that you don't need to pass 'em, you just need to wreck 'em. I had hoped that Bubba's penalty last week might signal that NASCAR was gonna crack down on intentional wrecking of competitors... but now they condone...

    Silly Season 2023

    Glad to see this. Parker Kligerman has shown a great deal of persistence over the years. And he's been driving the wheels off that #75 truck... 12 starts this year, one win at Mid-Ohio, four Top-5's, and eight Top-10's. And he's done that driving for a team with one full-time employee aided by...

    NASCAR Pick 'Em 2022 - Martinsville

    I posted earlier in the pre-race thread about my anger and disappointment over Rick Hendrick's attempt to manipulate the race and the 2022 championship. But I'm reiterating my objections here, because I had saved Chase Elliott for this race in the NASCAR Pick 'Em game. Joe Gibbs did the same...

    Xfinity 500 from Martinsville Speedway Pre-Race Thread

    I am absolutely livid about this blatant "points shaving" scheme. I am angry and disappointed that Rick Hendrick and HMS would stoop so low. I am angry and disappointed that NASCAR didn't prevent it from happening. As @AdoubleU24 mentioned earlier, it happened before... Hamlin won pole at the...

    The Food thread

    It's almost November... Thanksgiving is barreling down the calendar and will soon be upon us... so naturally I thought this one-minute video was totally brilliant.
