(NASCAR)   It's the Quicken Loans 400 at Michigan International Speedway, the only track that Dale Jr. has won at since 2006. Can he do it again? Or will he continue being the most popular driver to not live up to his popularity? Flag drops at 1pm ET on TNT   (nascar.com) divider line 446

Good day all!  Go #11
 
2013-06-16 12:39:29 PM  
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.

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.

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.

During pre-race coverage the 48 was shown being pushed late to the starting grid. Wendy Venturini said NASCAR kept them in tech inspection for a very long time. They have to know Chad is up to something but can't find it yet.

Hmm, all the ingredients for a massive Kurt Busch meltdown are there (creepy "meds are working" Kurt at the beginning of the season, bad luck as the season progresses, mounting sheetmetal bill which gets the team behind the 8 ball), but we have to clear Sonoma first. Just like with Finch, he can keep looking forward to that race as one he can win. If things go wrong out there, we'll be at Defcon 2 easily.

I think it's time a lot of us just readjusted to the fact NASCAR is going to be about long green flag runs again. It's been awhile, but it's not like it isn't "actual racing." It's just different. Of course, NASCAR (the organization) chops any attempt at impressive domination off at the knees with its incessant phantom debris cautions, so that breaks long term strategy constantly.

Of course, my solution is to chop air dams and splitters off the noses of the car, but for some reason NASCAR isn't listening to me.

Mystery debris, mystery pit stops.  I guess TNT knows mystery now too.

Y'know, if we're going to keep doing this commercial-debris thing, the least they could do is time it so we can watch the green flag stops when we come back from break.

Baby Face Fister: Jensaarai: Baby Face Fister: Good thing I'm not playing everytime they say Jimmie Johnson take a drink.

So what would count in this drinking game.

Does it have to be the full "Jimmie Johnson" to drink, or does "Jimmie," "Johnson," or "the 48" count too?

No, just Jimmie Johnson-full name, otherwise alcohol poisoning.


My college-era NASCAR drinking game was considered the most lethal idea ever. Whenever they showed a booze car on TV for a full second, you drank that thing. This was back when Jack Daniels, Jim Beam, Crown Royal, Budweiser, Miller Lite, and Coors Light were all regular cars, with guest appearances by Smirnoff. We never had the guts/funds to actually play.

We were thinking of doing a call-out things with those. Point out whichever you spot on our shiatty little common room TV, and make someone/everyone else take a drink of that. Other than that, it was mostly reserved for focused shots on the booze-car in question.

mikaloyd: kteela: mikaloyd: AngryDesertDweller: Was that KFC commercial a little racist ??

Sergio Garcia doesnt think so.
KFC and other sellers of fried chicken have to walk a fine line. If they dont feature any black people in their ads they are racist. If they feature too many or featture any in even a slightly wrong waqy they are racist.

Its just a shame that fried chicken got a racist connotation. because pretty much everybody likes fried chicken.

I think fried chicken smells better than it tastes.  I'm always disappointed when I eat it.  I haven't had any home-made in awhile though, so that might be why.

I love it hot and also cold later picnic style


And microwaved, re-heated in the oven, boiled, made into leftovers, whatever

/it's in those spices
//they make you get some more fortnightly

I'm 2 1/2 weeks from my next heart surgery. part of what they're doing is putting stents into the veins between my lungs and heart. Even if it weren't the heat, I don't have the energy, stamina, or endurance to survive a day at the races. Hell, a walk around the block is pretty much my limit.

base price is $100, but there are all kinds of specials. Like the Jeff Gordon deal where you buy one ticket at full price and get the second for $24. knocks about $40 off per ticket if you and friend go 50/50.
