      1. Turns out that driver was in a Top Fuel drag boat doing an exhibition run just to put on a show for the crowd, so I’m sure that Buckshot already knows since he keeps up on the drag boats.

        Anyone heard from him lately? I hope that he’s doing well?

  1. Daytona rained out until 1:00 tomorrow, if anyone cares… lol.

    I only flipped the TV over once and seem that it wasn’t being shown. Figured it was either a rain out or the shitheads in charge had moved it over to NBCSN again instead?

    1. The strongest earthquake I’ve ever felt was the one that we had here April 18 2008. It was a 5.4.
      They say that it shakes harder here because we are all on thick rock that has no give to it like the thick dirt that you all have out west. Still scary stuff. I will never forget it.

      1. I am either lucky or most likely unlucky because I seldom feel them. One thing about earthquakes is the warning is at best a few seconds, you don’t have to worry as long as with Hurricanes and to some extent Tornados. I’m strange I know.

  2. Happy to read this AM Bell’s 3rd place Turdota got DQ’d for failing post-race inspection……JGR must have been late with their protection money !!!

    1. Well, NA$CAR has to pretend bust a Turdota now and then to give the appearance that they haven’t been completely bought off by them (but we all know full well that they definitely have).

      The penalty will be purely symbolic I’m sure with a *wink* *wink* *nod* *nod* and no actual money will actually be removed from JGR/Turdota but they will tell the public that they did fine them.

      The NOL site said that today’s race was supposed to be on NBC broadcast TV. I tuned in just to see and it wasn’t. They lied.

      1. And yet we feel sorry for multi-millionaires? Well, because these are likeable ones that we can identify with I guess?

        I had a rough childhood too, grew up somewhat poor, but nobody ever paid me millions of bucks ever for anything in my life and it’s very likely that they never will? LOL!

        I am so wishing right now that I could win the lottery, move way out into the middle of nowhere with about 10,000 to 20,000 acres where the closest neighbor’s house can only been seen as a dot of light at night across the horizon, become a recluse and live out the rest of my life off the grid, out of the rat race on my own terms never having to work for anyone or answer to anyone for anything ever again. Believe me, if I had enough money and good health, I can always find something to do and enjoy my life and never be bored.

  4. Dear Wife:

    I’m writing you this letter to tell you that I’m leaving you forever.
    I’ve been a good man to you for seven years and I have nothing to show
    for it. These last two weeks have been hell. Your boss called to tell me
    that you quit your job today and that was the last straw. Last week, you
    came home and didn’t even notice that I had a new haircut, had cooked
    your favorite meal and even wore a brand new pair of silk boxers. You
    ate in two minutes and went straight to sleep after watching all of
    your soaps. You don’t tell me you love me anymore; you don’t want sex or
    anything that connects us as husband and wife. Either you’re cheating on
    me or you don’t love me anymore; whatever the case, I’m gone.

    Your
    EX-Husband

    P.S. Don’t try to find me. Your SISTER and I are moving away to West
    Virginia together! Have a great life!

    __________________________________________________________

    Dear Ex-Husband –

    Nothing has made my day more than receiving your letter. It’s true that
    you
    and I have been married for seven years, although a good man is a far
    cry
    from what you’ve been. I watch my soaps so much because they drown out
    your constant whining and griping. Too bad that doesn’t work. I DID
    notice when you got a hair cut last week, but the first thing that came
    to mind was ‘You look just like a girl!’ Since my mother raised me not
    to say anything if you can’t say something nice, I didn’t comment. And
    when you cooked my favorite meal, you must have gotten me confused with
    my SISTER, because I stopped eating pork seven years ago.

    About those new silk boxers: I turned away from you because of the
    $49.99 price tag was still on them, and I prayed that it was a
    coincidence that my sister had just borrowed fifty dollars from me that morning. After all of this, I still loved you and felt that we could work it out.
    So when I hit the lotto for ten million dollars, I quit my job and
    bought us two tickets to Jamaica. But when I got home you were gone. Everything happens for a reason, I guess. I hope you have the fulfilling life you always wanted. My lawyer said that the letter you wrote ensures you
    won’t get a dime from me. So take care.

    Signed,
    Your Ex-Wife, Rich As Hell and Free!

    P.S. I don’t know if I ever told you this, but my sister Carla was born
    Carl. I hope that’s not a problem.

  5. A collection of great quotes about beer and why we love it:

    Sometimes when I reflect on all the beer I drink, I feel ashamed. Then I
    look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of
    work and their dreams would be shattered. I think, “It is better to drink
    this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my
    liver.”
    — Babe Ruth

    An intelligent man is sometimes forced to be drunk to spend time with his
    fools.
    — Ernest Hemingway

    When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading.
    — Paul Hornung

    24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not.
    — H.L. Mencken

    When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep. When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to heaven. So, let’s all get drunk and go to heaven!
    — George Bernard Shaw

    Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.
    — Benjamin Franklin

    Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer.
    Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does
    not go nearly as well with pizza.
    — Dave Barry

    Beer: helping ugly people have sex since 3000 b.c.
    — W.C. Fields

    Remember “I” before “E”, except in Budweiser.
    — Professor Irwin Corey

    To some it’s a six-pack, to me it’s a “support group.” Salvation in a can!
    — Leo Durocher

    And the best of them all………………!!!!!!!!

    One night at Cheers, Cliff Clavin explained the “Buffalo Theory” to his buddy, Norm. “Well ya see, Norm, it’s like this. A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the
    slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole because the general speed and health of the whole group keep improving by the regular killing of the
    weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know,
    kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain
    cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine! That’s
    why you always feel smarter after a few beers.”

    1. I can’t watch it even if I wanted to because it’s on cable/pay tv FS1. Fox can just kiss my ass.

      Back in the day I did like DW’s commentary and the boogitys up until he and his brother became cheerleaders and whores for Turdota.
      They are both from my state and so is Turdota’s Camry plant in Georgetown that I have loathed ever since I had to do work for them and put up with their high handed bum bullshit for my former employer. Plus my state cheated and stole land from many farm owners and gave it away to Turdota on the taxpayer’s expense. They owe all of us here a free car since we’ve all paid enough taxes to them for one.

        1. Well, the Gibbs Turdotas romped again I had heard even though I didn’t watch it.

          So your prediction came true.

          My co-worker friend who is going to and camping at the Ky triple header race with me texted me that he’s feeling some buyer’s remorse that we will be seeing the same Turdota Gibbs romp again there when we are there in July.

          I told him that this was pretty much a certainty since Ky Speedway is sponsored/owned by Turdota corporate money and they are also flat out bragging about it in their TV commercials about the race being another Turdota 3 races/series shutout of all the other makes.

          They honestly believe that most of the race fans will like this and Turdota domination?

          They are deluded fools.

  6. A Guy is sitting at a bar when this Blonde Walks in ……..

    This guy is sitting at a bar when a blonde walks in and asks if the vacant stool alongside him is taken.
    He said, “no, have a seat.” The blonde sat and ordered a beer.
    The guy was watching tv just as the late-night news came on and the lead story was a guy standing on the edge of the tallest building in the city, threatening to jump.
    The blonde says to the guy, “I’ll bet you twenty bucks the guy doesn’t jump.
    The guy says, “I’ll take that bet.” She slides a twenty toward him and he puts his twenty in..
    No sooner than they seal the deal, the guy on the roof does a near perfect swan dive off the building.
    The blonde turns to the guy and said, “DAMN! Oh well, I Believe in paying my debts. You win the bet. Here’s my twenty.”
    The guy slides it back to her and said, ” Honey, I can’t take your money. I saw this on the five o’clock news.”
    The blonde said, ” Yeh, I saw it then too but I didn’t think the guy would do it twice.”

    The guy kept her money.

  7. Learning to cuss

    Two brothers a 6-year-old and a 4-year-old are out playing in the yard.
    The 6-year-old asks, “You know what? I think it’s about time we started
    learning to cuss”. The 4-year-old nods his head in approval.
    The 6-year-old continues, “When we go in for lunch I’m gonna say
    something with hell and you say something with ass”.
    The 4-year-old agrees with enthusiasm.

    When mom calls them in and asks the 6-year-old what he wants for lunch, he replies, “Aw, hell, Mom, I guess I’ll have a PB&J”.
    WHACK!
    He flies out of his chair, tumbles across the kitchen floor, gets up, and
    runs upstairs crying his eyes out, with his mother in hot pursuit, slapping
    his rear with every step. His mom locks him in his room and shouts, “You can
    stay there until I let you out!”

    She then comes back downstairs, looks at the 4-year-old and asks with a
    stern voice, “And what do YOU want for lunch, young man?”

    “I don’t know”, he blubbers, “but you can bet your ass it won’t be a PB&J”..

  8. Glad I didn’t waste time watching the Cup race (well I have no cable TV so..).
    Another Gibbs Turdota stinkfest, 20 car wins.

    I don’t have much hope to see any Chevies win when I’m at Ky Speedway in July.

    Oh well. I hope that the weather is nice and that I can drink as much beer as I like without any health issues for those 4 days that I will be there?

    Beer makes bad TV better, so maybe it could for a few races on a vacation?

    I know, it will probably be another stinking Turdotafest?

    But I support my home track (even though it is sponsored by Turdota sadly enough) and I need a vacation in the worst way. I’ll just wear my Chevy Bowtie hat and shirt there every day and flip off the Turdota fans in an act of defiance and contempt.

    Hopefully I will be able to enjoy it more this year because my RV should not need any major work other than the usual good cleaning and washing from sitting over the winter under a cover.

  12. Michigan race was rained out Sunday.
    It’s supposed to run at 5PM EDT Monday on FS1 where not many can watch it either.
    It is still raining there at 6 AM Monday as I type this.

    Biff came back out of retirement to race in a Kryle Bouche truck and he won it.
    Yipee… NOT.

    Kryle said before the race that if anyone cannot get it done in one of his trucks that they aren’t much of a driver.

    Way to reassure and boost up the Biffster’s confidence there, Kryle?

    You have no sense of tact or decency at all, Kryle.

    This is why so many despise you.

    You are still very much a childish prick and an asshole.

      We won’t ever forget all of those times that you spun out and crashed so many cars all by yourself while you were driving the HMS #5 car and while racing in the Busch cars and trucks too, you little dickweed.

            So many of them are all hands off and helpless doing things that us baby boomers do.
            Yet they will know everything about their cell phones and video games?

            My nephew is amazed at how much that I and my brother can do for ourselves (calls us renaissance men) while he has to hire most everything done outside of setting up a computer system (which he at a young age had learned from my brother how to do). I grew up in a family that never could afford to hire anyone to fix or do things for us. Necessity and no money is the creator of learning to do things for yourself. The greatest generation lived that way and that was pretty much the case for most up until the baby boomers.

    BUT, Hamster wrecked out, Jones wrecked out, Kryle didn’t win, so there was a bright side I reckon? Chase gave it hell today, did not have the car to win.

    After watching Truex so easily out accelerate everyone on every restart, I’m convinced they are cheating and are hiding/masking their extra horsepower because the car wasn’t turning all that much better than everyone else’s.

        Indy cars are allowed a “kill mode” to crank up the most horsepower but it quickly consumes the engine. That’s what made it even more exciting.

        NA$CAR could learn a lot from Indycar by letting them race and have some advantages over one another instead of manufacturing and rigging everything for their desire.

        I say that NA$CAR should allow nitrous oxide to be used in the Cup series.
        Just one bottle only. Use it at their discretion at any time in the race.
        That would be their “kill mode”. A burst of power that won’t last for long that could destroy the engine but would make for a helluva exciting finish! This is like when they allowed each team one set of extra soft super sticky tires at a road race a few years ago. Just ONE set only.

        This would work.

          1. His crew had put ethanol with some other unauthorized oxygenation additives into their fuel is what I’ve heard over the years? Maybe even some nitromethane (AKA liquid dynamite or hydrazine which has been banned) like top fuel dragsters use?

            Jet (turbine) fuel (Jet A or Jet A-1) is actually kerosene and won’t work well in any gasoline piston engine.
            It would detonate and ping due to low octane (ignites way too soon and burns too fast under compression) . Now jet fuel would run good in a diesel engine because diesel engines require fast ignition and fast burning cetane instead of octane.

            Gasoline race engines need a slower burning/harder to ignite fuel so that the combustion/burn mostly occurs while the piston is on the down stroke instead of exploding instantly under compression on the up stroke before the piston/crank ever reaches the top without any ignition spark (dieseling).

      BULL SHIT!
      These are not the droids that you’re looking for! Move along!
      That Jedi mind trick doesn’t work on anyone but the weak minded!

      The France family owns both NA$CAR and ISC already. We weren’t born yesterday. This nothing but a trick to subvert anti-trust and monopoly laws that have always kept these entities legally separated.

      The sport is dying quickly and they know it too. This is nothing but an attempt to fuck Bruton Smith out of all of his tracks having anymore races so that the greedy France family can take what’s left of the money made at those race tracks that they do not own. They are in no way planning to build any new tracks anywhere or do they have any realistic chance to get new fans at all. Anyone who believes NA$CAR’s claims on any of this shit is a sucker!
      Yet another Jedi mind trick.

      Fuck the France family and fuck NA$CAR!
