Good day all!  Go #11

I got my Father's Day present (a large carniverous plant) and a nice card.  Then everybody took off to the local spring, leaving me in solitude to drink beer and enjoy this race (even if it's as boring as Michigan usually is).

Best.  Father's Day.  Ever.

So far.

The Nationwide race was fun really fun. By the end, they were beating and banging at ridiculous speeds. Getting mad at each other in a pseudo pack. I don't think we'll get that today in Cup, but Gen6 managed to make California exciting, and California is just shiatty Michigan, so we'll see. Even if someone runs away with it, I'm looking for slingshots in the top 10 through top 20 to make this fun -- if the cameras will focus back there.

That reminds me.  I recorded yesterday's race while I was working but forgot to watch it.  Maybe tonight.

Last night I watched my (illegal) recording of NBC's coverage of the '06 Daytona 500.  One thing I couldn't help noticing was that there were NO commercials during the last hour of the race.

The good ol' days.

On some other motorsports forums, they'll sometimes do discussion threads of old races. Try to generally start watching the vid around the same time and treat it live-ish. I kinda wish we could get the Fark crew together for some old 80s or 90s races, just to see what jokes we wind up with.

But '06 wasn't that long ago. Did you check to see if there was a Daytona 500 thread that year?

Yep, Denny's Team pretty much knocked it out of the park with their tribute to Jason Leffler. Jason's paint scheme from 2005 when he ran this car for 19 races..

Ok, I realize NASCAR is trying to reach out to the black community, but that version of the National Anthem was about on par with Roseanne's.

Thats a pretty damn good idea. I'm sure there are some races on youtube we could do it to.

Found it. I think that was a bit before my time in these threads. Weeners is The NaSkAr hoping the 48 will explode. Heh.

Good morning and Happy Father's Day to all the dads, too bad the race is on T-N (we'll be right back after these commercials)-T.. I'll take my boys #29 Harvick, #14 Smoke and # 78 Kurt Busch. The Michigan track is Roush and Ford country so keep a eye on the blue oval cars.

Looks like a decent crowd there today.

No, but I'll agree that sounds like fun.  That was the pre-Fark era for me.  I'll try that the next time I break out an unlabelled video tape that happens to have an old race on it.

Nascar on NBC? If it was as good as IndyCar coverage, I'd not have a need for all these crazy network-bashing images anymore!

Ah Dale Jr , the more marketable Kyle Petty.
 
2013-06-16 01:17:28 PM
What is the over and under before the first set of commercials, 10 laps ??

Lots of NASCAR dads on pit road in today's QuickenLoans 400 Also lots of would be moms looking for would be dads

Ten bucks says Kenseth winced after saying "You too," to Kyle Petty after getting wished a happy father's day by him.
 
2013-06-16 01:18:43 PM
Hmmm...looks like I need Edwards to totally blow it before I make any Fantasy headway this week .

Hey now. I've never seen Dale Jr. play guitar.

If only there were some was to replay time and see for sure if there was contact.

Yeah... That's probably going to hasten your retirement there, Bobby boy. :/

Gordon's aero is done

Wait Jeff is out of his car...

That's it I guess...

Carl Edwards on radio to team about Kurt Busch: "We've had a good talk, so I guess the talking part is over with him.''

What's with all the commercials? I thought TNT was better than fox?

FTFY. This is a 2013 NASCAR thread.

Jimmy Fennig now tells Carl Edwards 78 did NOT hit him @ start. Says Carl: "We can put him back on the Christmas list.''

Get used to it.  It was horrible last week.

smerfnablin: What's with all the commercials? I thought TNT was better than fox?


Um, no. Not even close. Even when they're not away at commercial, they have half the screen full of them.

smerfnablin: What's with all the commercials? I thought TNT was better than fox?


They were. 5+ years ago. People have forgotten that ever since their partnership with NBC ended and they lost Benny Parsons, they've been freefalling. The past couple years they've been leading the race to the bottom with commercials, banners, race breaks etc. ESPN will give us side by side for part of the race, but at the cost of truly incompetent race coverage.
 
2013-06-16 01:30:58 PM
I hope they black flag Edwards for being an assclown

He just threatened Busch twice over his radio
 
2013-06-16 01:31:02 PM
"Let's get that one back when we need it". Oh Cousin Carl, your Opie smile defies your blackened heart!
 
2013-06-16 01:33:19 PM
So half the Toyota cars turned up the engine power at the cost if reliability

Kyle and Matt are showing the power reward

Do you think they will finish the race?
 
2013-06-16 01:34:01 PM

good_2_go: they have half the screen full of them.


The bright yellow Sprint banner isn't annoying at all!
 
2013-06-16 01:35:34 PM
Is it just me or did they dial down the "ad banner" a little bit this week?

You're in for a world of surprises. The quality of the broadcast goes down as the season wears on. Soon we'll be lamenting for FOX and TNT once ESPN comes on.

Johnson went from 36 to 17 in 10 laps?

Not bad for a track he has never won on...

Yes. It's really annoying,

I'm gonna have to make a coffee run before I can get any quality snark going.

Good morning and happy Father's Day.

So far, the Allmendinger/Labonte ride swap is approximately 50% successful.
