    NASCAR To Convert California Into Short Track

    So I just tried to 3D model it. I'm not "great" at CAD, but i can get stuff done. I literally cannot get the transitions from a 25 degree banking to 11 degree front/backstretch to compute in that tight of a radius. It seriously does not jive. Pro-E is like "What are you doing, this is not...

    NASCAR To Convert California Into Short Track

    Maybe it will spur somebody's idea. And given the dimensions, they probably could cover it just like the Tulsa Chili Bowl facility, but it would still take center support poles, and a ridge vent. Maybe make the scoring pylon be the support pole, right smack in the center.

    New BBQ pick

    What's the criteria you are working with? We have a 4 burner stainless weber. Only issue we have ran into repeatedly regardless of brand - none of them use stainless steel cooking grates or burner shields, so they both rust away (only the bodies are stainless). We took a piece of stainless...

    So after the Topeka race, we pulled the engine out for preventive/scheduled maintenance. We found way more wrong than we bargained for. We got new pistons in this week, shoving the engine back together over the 3-day weekend and basically going to run to midnight oil to have it all ready...

    Bonehead for Daytona Cup

    Reddick and his spotter. I understand WHY he did what he did, but not why his spotter allowed him to do what he did. Technically he did CLEAR Kyle, but Kyle and the people behind him overreacted, and it was only be a couple hairs. Now granted, I know that's typically a bad spot for spotters...

    Dad's coworker was at a hospital in PAS today, said all the roadways were jammed with traffic escaping and that local weather was advertising the storm surge could make it to I-10
