I'm rooting for Harvick.  Because it's just gonna happen that way.  I guess we wait to see if he wins with a 6 second lead or a 3 second lead.
 
2018-03-11 06:34:31 AM  
What's the over/under on lead lap finishers?  I think that will be more fun to try to guess.

And afterward, maybe we can we have a Harvick penalty speculation thread

When I lived there you couldn't get a decent ticket unless you knew somebody. Yesterday, I think they had fewer fans than a local basketball game.

Quite an accomplishment considering how terrible the local basketball team is.

/Also, Indycar started today.
//I tried to get a live thread started after the race began, but I was denied.

My Dad and I spent 15 years upgrading our Daytona 500 tickets from Row 4 in Weatherly (Turn 4) to Row 9 in Campbell Chair (the start/finish line).  Now you can get Tower seats (up high where you can see the whole track) that day.

/I know it's redesigned, but the principle is the same.  Best seats, day of the race now.

Exciting finish for the Indy race. Was really pulling for the rookie, Wickens, to win in his first race. Sucks the way he was taken out, but aggressive racing is part of the sport

I'll get this started...I'll say 13 cars on the lead lap at the checkers.

Hard to win when his cheating crew chief is suspended

No more break away window support or steel side skirt

He got caught cheating with 2 separate violations. No crew chief for 2 races and 7 championship vapor ware points lost

I like Harvick, but I hate that Ford logo on his fire suit now

Who's gonna make the first right turn?
 
2018-03-11 03:14:33 PM  
Last night after sleeping through most of the XF race, I put on an old rain-delayed COT race at Atlanta.  It was the one where they were trying to come up with a name for Digger and Opie blew up an engine while leading with 40 to go and Shrub gave Toyota their fist Cup win.  Then Smoke seriously bad-mouthed Goodyear.  Remember?

Asshat hopefully
 
2018-03-11 03:16:02 PM  
I need to run errands, so I'll miss the first part of the race. But if the first 3 races have been any indication, I won't miss anything.
 
2018-03-11 03:17:58 PM  
so.. Guido's trying to get himself over on the internet? He really Is the Zack Ryder of Cup!
 
2018-03-11 03:19:57 PM  
I looked up Happy.......That's a blow the  team took.
 
2018-03-11 03:20:01 PM  
Supposedly social media, perhaps Reddit was the original heads up on Harvicks car. Both Jr and Happy questioned the source
 
2018-03-11 03:22:40 PM  
It figures that Asshat it a Dodgers fan.

There's aggressive racing, and then there's that bullshiat.

Rossi didn't have the car - even on other parts of the track, he was sliding bad enough to not have anything for Wickens (if there had been no cautions).  Doing what he did going into 1, knowing other drivers had been screwing up like that all day, was a stupid, stupid move, and it's just as stupid that the stewards did nothing about it (they penalized Dixon for doing the same exact thing).

a "chamber of commerce" day in phoenix today......about 75 degrees, "the simpsons" opening clouds, lazy breezes pushing and pulling.....good stuff.  i thought about going to the race - never  been to a NASCAR event before - but staying home.  about 15miles (if that) from the track, other side of the mountains.

The "Visor Cam" might be one of the worst ideas Fox has come up with since Digger.

How hard is it to get tickets to Bristol? I'd like to go to a race this year and Indy, though it's close to me, sucks for Nascar.

From what I saw (almost went last year)  not nearly as difficult as back in the day

A lot easier these days... Last time I went I bought seats the day before for the night race

For Indy try getting tickets on the bleachers behind pit row. That's where I sat for a few years and it's always amazing to be able to watch a pit stop up close. Plus for 3 of those years I got to be behind Jeff's pit so that made me happier. :D

I was also close to the start/finish line so that was awesome as well.

Now since they moved the date, heat shouldn't be a problem like in year's past.
 
2018-03-11 03:46:33 PM  
no rain today, i hope

Its not.. its a small time actor (this was the first thing I looked up when I first saw that commercial)

JJ spins on what lap?
 
2018-03-11 03:50:40 PM  
Okay y'all so I have a big problem (that I caused).

So I booked my round trip flight to Indiana for me and Jan's tickets through Expedia. The trip there isn't bad because my dad said he didn't mind picking us up at midnight and we leave midday from California.

It's the flight back - I stupidly booked it thru Delta without looking at what it entails. Unfortunately I chose their cheapest options which means no seat assignment (that Expedia mentioned in very small letters) and apparently there's no guarantee that we'll be seated together. Plus I swear to god Delta (or Expedia) changed our flight times (I had a 4pm departure EST and we be back in California at roughly 8:30pm PST). But somehow the very early flight got selected?? I'm still like "what the fark".

Of course Delta's cancellation fees (or change flight fees) are 200 dollars a ticket. Our tickets were only 137 a piece. So I'm wondering if there is anything Delta can do if we just don't show up for our flights. Dad is already paying me back for buying the tickets (because I happened to get a credit increase so I used my card but Dad was gonna pay for the flight regardless). I'm willing to eat the Delta price tickets if I can avoid the cancellation fees. I just want to make sure that there won't be any penalty or issues or anything like that.

I had forgotten about Southwest and I wish I booked thru them instead. For the flight back I'm thinking of booking thru them but if Delta can somehow charge me more for a no-show then I'll just suck it up and deal with that.

'harvick continues to pick them off'

he was up 2 spots in 10 laps and promptly lost 1 back
