    Well I for one...and I may be the only one, would love to see Mayfield race again.

    Good riddance. I hope the damn thing winds up in a junk yard with a half-dozen crackheads living in it, decorated with graffiti and knee-deep in trash.

    Now if we can just lose the entire notion that a race needs more than three in the booth and three on pit road. No frickin' 'hosts'. Nobody explaining the same half-dozen graphics every week. No 'lifestyle correspondents' or whatever the hell Wood is.

    It doesn't make a difference to me one way or another. However, at his age, it would be difficult to get a Cup ride for sure. Everyone wants a young gun these days.

    He might do ok in the trucks, problem is, even in the trucks there are only so many good rides

    Maybe it was all just a big misunderstanding when people said he was addicted to Meth....
    All because he once told a reporter that he was addicted to Speed. :D

    Well, I for one believe that NASCAR is correct to have a drug policy and enforce it. If Mayfield wants to race again in NASCAR, he needs to take care of unfinished business. The ball is in his court... and always has been.

    Looks great, as usual!

    Somebody needs to make scale decals of those checkered flag stickers they put beside the driver's name after each win. Print 'em in a row of about 12 and the builders can cut them down as needed.

    Random end of season stat. Interesting how a season/playoff format that could so benefit a past Champion of the sport can come back to burn him just a few years later. But, of course, they would have raced different. I mean, Joey would have simply turned it up several more notches and erased that 189 point deficit.

    Ryan Blaney 10th under both systems. I guess he is officially a top 10 driver.:D

    Under no other system would Austin Dillon end the year ahead of Jimmie Johnson or even Eric Jones.

    My grandfather built this car, but my dad didn’t like Bodine back then. Tony Eury Jr showed up at dads shop once with a 15/Bodine hat on and dad took it off his head and set it ablaze....

    Later the same year, Tony Jr showed up with a 15/Bodine RC car. I was watching Tony Jr drive it in the parking lot of dads shop. Dad walked up, pulled his pistol, and started shooting at the car. Tony JR drove it as fast as he could straight out of range.

    Dad pulled and fired his pistol one other time in the shop parking lot. A group of us were building street stock race cars. One dude thought he’d build a Ford Thunderbird. Dad put a bullet through the quarter panel and through the fuel cell. No fords allowed on dads land.

    I love the arrangement of gas and brake pedals. Clearly laid out to enable heel-toe action.

    After his 2018 season, I'd think the last thing Jimmie would want to see is a bird faster than the #48 car.

    JJ is just telling you what his new program for 2019 will be. :D
    I think he will get 1 or 2 wins this coming season and retire with 90 wins.

    The 48 is going to fly next year. Looks like he is back working on the beard, good.

    PBS had a great show on peregrines last week, and the aerodynamics of stooping (attack dives).

    I saw that show, Charlie. Those birds are something else. Every Spring I have several falcon cams that I watch.

    I had a friend long time ago that had a Goshawk and a Red Tail. He goes out in industrial areas with open lots and rabbit hunts with them. To get them back, he takes a chicken leg in his gloved hand and peels back the skin and holds it up so that the Hawk flying up there sees it and hits his hand with some force. He saved both of these as babies by climbing up in trees before the developers bulldozers knocked down the tree. It's a strange hobby if ya ask me, but it was fun to go with him a couple of times. They got some of the rabbits.
