    Been peeking at the Open Championship milly-maker. Saw that a couple RG regulars are threatening the top of the leaderboard, so good luck to BDholla, Awesemo, etc…

    Personally, I’m too weak-willed to suffer a 4-day sweat….

    Even a NASCAR rain delay is almost more than I can handle…. (:.

    If you look way (I mean waay) down at the bottom of the leaderboard you may see my disgraceful single bullet. It has been staring at me all weekend.

    Suarez and Cassill are the last two (2) cars to make it through tech. Cassill, along with McDowell, already starting in back due to going to backup cars as a result of wrecks during happy hour.

    And everyone through tech, again according to Bob Pockrass

    I started playing golf back when it was relatively new. I loved it because I am a CPA (specifically Tax Compliance) so January through April makes it hard for me to consistently play sports like NBA. I loved golf because i could set everything Wednesday night, then just casually follow the leaderboards for the rest of the weekend. No constant research, no checking last minute rotogrinders alerts or lineup scratches. Just set-n-go. The frustrating part of golf, though, is that you can be #1 on Thursday, or even Friday, and then not even min cash by Sunday.

    Some decent overlay in both the DK Piston and Chrome. It will be interesting to see whether DK keeps these contests locked if the race doesn’t start until tomorrow.

    Never quite understood exactly what DK’s policy is on this….

    Well, since I like talking to myself….

    The contests are live and DK is showing driver ownership percentages, so I guess they’re permanently locked.

    Which is good for those of us who entered these contests.

    I’ve been staring at dead golf lineups all weekend. With NASCAR locked, I may have to do a screenshot to enjoy some DK green showing for a change.

    Threw a couple of weird line ups in just in case this gets rain shortened. We’ll see. gl all.

    maybe the sun will pop out and help with drying

  • gje627

    $20 to anyone here who develops a better way to dry the track instead of using a bunch of slow “air titans”.

    It takes an hour, or more, to try tracks this way and it always seems that just when they are about finished more rain rolls in…..

    A couple weeks ago Darrell Waltrip suggested several gargantuan tarps…. But he has never been known for his brainpower.

    My thought would be to build air ducts into the walls, but slightly inset into the safer barriers, so as not to reduce safety.

    So the track doesn’t have to pay the expenses for equipment, NASCAR can just bring HVAC-like ducts to the tracks each week, along with sufficient generator power…. This would dry the entire track at once, and be far superior to the slow and cumbersome air titans, and it probably wouldn’t be a higher expense for NASCAR; particularly considering races that are moved to Monday mornings and significant commercial revenue is lost….

    Since we spoke about golf early, Nascar could do what they do at Augusta National which is put heaters under the greens. I don’t think NASCAR has Masters money but it’s an idea haha.

  • homers1226

    same way you install a heated tile floor

    rip up track and install bunch of copper wires in the new pour

    be dry in 15 minutes

    Interesting you mention that.

    I’m building a new house right now out in the country, no furnace but heated floors, including the garage…. :)

  • homers1226

    or just use rain tires and let the chips fall were the may

    new tatic ,,so and so driver is really good on wet tracks

    did I win 20 bucks ?

    woops wrong quote

    gje

    do I win 20 bucks lmao

  • gje627

    Correct me if I’m wrong…. But wouldn’t heating under the track, however one decides to do it, actually just make the water, and therefore the track, hot and dry it only slightly? After all, concrete and asphalt isn’t grass or other super-permeable material….

    Still think the better (and cheaper way) is with blowers of some sort, especially given track banking the water would roll down to the infield quickly….

    But what do I know…..

    Promise, though, as soon as NASCAR installs floor (under track) heating at all tracks, the $20 is all yours.

    Until then, I keep the money in escrow for you !!! :)

  • gje627

    Kyle Larson 28.6% ownership in the Piston.

    I would love hear everyone’s thoughts on this?

  • bigperm0107

    Harvick is way higher owned than I anticipated.

  • gje627

    Did Dale Jr. just get out of bed before the show started today?

    He looks a little disheveled to me….

    But at least he ironed his Sunoco t-shirt….

  • wscooby

    I got Larson at 35%, so it looks like I am a bit high on him, I went with Larson Logano and Bowyer all the same %s

    Breaking News

    Today’s NASCAR race has been postponed….

    FYI, it hasn’t been postponed…. Yet anyway.

    That was my poor attempt at humor.

    I’ll quit now.
