The butthurt will be epic if KyBu sweeps the weekend. He'll have to race K&N and Arca next year just to try to one up himself.

Looks like Race Buddy is late. As in, the late Buddy Race Buddy.

So I'd like to give a shout-out to Tony Stewart for calling King Richard out and to the King for picking up the gauntlet.

 I'm guessing late models at  Eldora or Hawkeye Downs?

Are you not sports entertained?

I'd deploy the checklist today but its more Sprint Cup centered than the other series.  Oh screw it, I'll do it with some stuff crossed out that won't apply today (and I'll get busy adapting this for Nationwide).

Your weekly NASCAR thread checklist.  Just like the NASCAR rulebook; ever-changing and updated on the fly.
(With input from a bunch of people!)

1) Every 25th post is "DANICA" and every 1,100th post is, "Screw the gredunza, I just did the double!"
2) Brian France asking "ARE YOU NOT SPORTS ENTERTAINED?" before the 10th post
3) Somebody comes in with a humorous "left/right turn/going in circles" comment
4) BOOGITY in some form when race starts
5) Idols/Buddhas/Transformers/Reactors being fired up
6) Complaints about TNT & ESPN race coverage (or if in TNT/ESPN coverage, how bad it is and how we pine for FOX again) ONLY VALID FOR 2014!
7) While we were away
8) Green flag pit stops
9) The inevitable race commentator foul up
10) Phantom debris cautions - pace dingo appears after two, Mr. McMahon appears if it benefits the driver of car #48 and/or the person who probably doesn't deserve to drive car #3
11)  "Austin Ty Dillon driving car number three... the number made famous by the late/great Dale Earnhardt."
12)  If all else fails since it worked the one time we did this, start unleashing ponies if He Who Shall Not Be Named is still running near the front/running away from the field
13) Complaints and such if Jimmie Johnson wins again and celebrations from his fan(s)

14)  Race is official when Kvapil, Reutimann or Wise bring out the caution (can be more than one)
15)  BONUS OFFICIAL RACE:  Mikey brings out the yellow
16)  Something to do with potato salad and/or sugar free gummi bears
17)  SPECIAL BONUS:  One of us is actually at the track
18)  Something not meant to catch fire does
19)  We are reminded about how a track is famous for The Big One/Darlington Stripe/Eating tires/Fuel Mileage races.
20)  "Because #3 car"
21)  Race is boring... what are you drinking?
22)  "Lord baby Jesus, smite Logano's engine!"
 
2014-02-22 01:17:45 PM
Well...it's ESPN. Maybe they'll lose the Fox scoring half of the screen bug.

Looking good. I would suggest going with the 500th (500 miles) post for the double, tho. 1000th post for a double-double. Might be hard to get to 1000 regularly.
 
2014-02-22 01:22:41 PM
Wait... Did they not do group qualifying for trucks?

Don't remember seeing anything about truck qualifying, but I go believe it was rain-shortened the other day?

Apparently not; I'm assuming it was rained out and set by practice speeds.

I'm digging all the Mexican kids coming up through the Toyota series. Quiroga is a bad ass driver. Suarez who took the K&N East race the other day looks damn talented as well. My girlfriend says she grew up next door to some Kwasniewski's in Illinois. I read something about Max Papis is going to race in a euro-NASCAR series... or am I delusional from lack of coffee?

And yeah, after hitting submit I remembered truck qualys were rained out.

Yes, because in pre-season (and pre-500) calibration they've unleashed all sorts of havoc.

Quickly to single file for the front, what...15?
 
2014-02-22 01:34:36 PM
Race Buddy does exist. It's just that NASCAR's website is even more of a convoluted mess than ever before. I'm expecting sparkley USA flags soon.

Who had six laps before the first commercial?  Step up and claim your prize!
 
2014-02-22 01:37:51 PM
Caution.  But on commercial.

So is it safe to assume that watching video of this would be akin to watching either Hulk Hogan or Ron Jeremy parody Miley Cyrus?

It was. They basically did a half hearted head banging version. Still not sure what happened there

I have a feeling if I were to fire my Idol (which has so far caused two flips, 23 destroyed racecars, and a flaming pace car) I would cause a wreck akin to the mess in the 2002 Aaron's 312.

Tiny Buddha remains online, but at idle with the cooling vents open. Takes to long to warm up for tomorrow, and besides, a few three-headed fish isn't a problem...it's evolution in action.

I did a power upgrade to mine in the off-season...may or may not have caused an unusual amount of snow in my state but all worth it to make sure YKW doesn't win another title. Running a little on the warm side right now I may have to fire it later to regulate the temperature.

I'd always assumed that the birthplace of speed was some bathtub full of sinus-relief medicine.

I'd forgotten that Nationwide is leaving after this year. Any guesses as to who will sponsor the Busch series next year?

Well..bathtub gin may well have played a part in the early days...bathtub meth is a natural progression, I think.
