Posting now so it won't get forced any further later tonight. I understand there may be a delay, but I don't want the thread to be delayed to regular Fark either.
 
2014-07-12 08:06:44 PM  
Weird that the race coverage starts now but the greenlight is delayed. Is there some sort of Fark limitation on threads that can be greenlit at any given time, or is it just apathy that makes the people who approve the threads an hour late?

It's a new thing they've started in the past month. If a thread that is due to go on the main page at a certain time and it receives 0 comments, it gets pushed further back to a later time. It's exactly what happened here. It was originally set to go live at 8, which is why I posted so it wouldn't get pushed further back.

Huh? I thought Diffy just said they were pushing the green flag forward instead of back.
I like this track.

I got to play the CART Fury arcade game again from 2000 today, did the Season Mode as JPM, jet dryers be damned I got first.

Race green flag moved forward, race thread greenlight moved back.  Just another day on Fark.

It got moved back because there were 0 comments on it all day. It's a new thing Fark does so that the links get commented on and not passed over. It was originally going live @ 8 but nobody commented, so it got moved.

Hmm... There's one on ebay for $700... Anyone want to buy, hell, I don't know.... my cats?

The drivers will have to tightly CORNer in order to navigate the maize of Iowa Speedway. Will Juablo continue to stalk teammate Power for the championship?
Their reflexes will have to pop and be silky smooth if they're to have a kernal of hope, or their championship dreams will just be a husk of what they were.
 
2014-07-12 08:20:32 PM  
Did everybody see the guys in the booth getting prepared? Or did Sportsnet not go to commercial when NBCSN did?

I saw commercials
 
2014-07-12 08:21:18 PM  
And it looks like Fark moved it back to 8:00 to go live. Thanks admin!

Comments are down overall, so that isn't going to help.

They should special case event threads and also start them earlier than the event start time.

My girlfriend is rushing home from her shift at Seca to watch this. The only reason she is excited is that DeKalb corn farmers are a co-sponsor and she's from there. Silly.

Seca's one of the tracks in the game.

FARK YOU, CORN ETHANOL!

Lame command was lame.
 
2014-07-12 08:27:34 PM  
So we haven't heard from Ed since their Houston win (and penalty). Hope all is good there.
 
2014-07-12 08:27:42 PM  
They fixed the 2-seater radio finally?
 
2014-07-12 08:27:48 PM  
On one hand we don't have to listen to someone butcher the anthem.
On the other hand, that corn fed fat man gave a horrible command.
On my third hand, the girl in the fire suit for NBCSN is cute.
On my foot maybe I can get Seca to sponsor my purchase of the arcade game.

this track IS kinda tiny
 
2014-07-12 08:31:52 PM  
They didn't waste any time mixing it up, did they? I expect an accident or two tonight.

17 seconds a lap tiny.

Kanaan's already moving up on the backmarkers.
 
2014-07-12 08:35:42 PM  
Lap counter isn't working. It jumped from 8 to 11 to 17.

TNT could take a lesson from this. Fortunately for us, they'll never have to. No more LOLTNT.

Like an old man trying to send back soup in a deli?
 
2014-07-12 08:40:47 PM  
And caution while we were sort of away.
 
2014-07-12 08:40:57 PM  
While we were side by side...
 
2014-07-12 08:41:18 PM  
I really wish they would come back to Richmond
 
2014-07-12 08:41:23 PM  
Looks like rain.
 
2014-07-12 08:41:33 PM  
rain on the lens.

No, we're not done with TNT yet. There is one more No, we're not done with TNT yet.
 
2014-07-12 08:44:17 PM  
and red
 
2014-07-12 08:44:29 PM  
Well... that was something.
 
2014-07-12 08:44:31 PM  
Red flag.

Time to redlight thread
 
2014-07-12 08:44:36 PM  
I thought the vortex theory said once they got going it would keep the track clear.  Oh well.
 
2014-07-12 08:44:48 PM  
...and red. Is it just me or has there been an inordinate number of reds in all series this year for weather?
 
2014-07-12 08:45:25 PM  

This is a late parrot: I really wish they would come back to Richmond


I got a block of tickets for that race one year and took a bunch of non race fan friends. They loved it. Great track.

/plus, they got to see princess crumplefenders
//before she had fenders
