    Is this an impound race ala Granders RV 400 at Pocono?

    Yes.

    The best clue as to whether a race is an impound race or not, is by looking at the final on-track activity before the race.

    If the final on-track activity immediately before the race is practice …. It is not an impound race.

    If the final on-track activity immediately before the race is qualifying …. It is, in fact, an impound race.

    This Sunday, the garage opens at 9:00 AM ET. This is approximately when pre-race inspection will begin (likely the pole winner will be the first car inspected and start inspection at/about 9:10 AM).

  • gje627

    On a different note ….

    Whether or not you play Truck series fantasy ….

    The single-best NASCAR race of the year, including Cup, Xfinity, Gander, regional series etc ….

    Is the trucks, tomorrow, on short-track dirt in Eldora.

  • Stangs13

    I can’t wait for Eldora. I’ll probably just do a few entries due to the timing of the qualifying races then the feature. Also seems hard to predict after looking at past races.

  • Stangs13

    Few stats i came across in my research. On average 5 drivers starting in the top 10 finish in the top 10. The pole sitter averages leading 52 of 150 laps but finishes on average 17th. 5 of 6 winners have started in the top 7 the exception Austin Dillion the first year of the race starting 19th.

    I don’t think I have ever watched a truck race before (blasphemy!) but I’m going to check this out tonight – sounds like a good time. Also doing a lineup for the $8 cos of course I am.

    The Truck Series is the only good series left in NASCAR anymore ….

    And ….

    The Eldora race is the best-of-the-best Truck Series races.

    C’Mon DK ….

    Give us the World of Outlaws !!!

    No.

    Technically, since the Cup and Xfinity series are so bad theses days ….

    It’s the best-of-the-best-of-the-best … of the worst !!! :(

    Damn, I was so close too. Oh well.

    Good point.

    It does seem like recently the rain-outs are more frequent.

    ….

    C’Mon DK.

    Give us Monster Truck racing !!!

    Wait? That might be a little weird …. :(

    lol I vaguely remember as a kid “Bigfoot” was a big deal – I always preferred “Gravedigger” although I have no idea why. Never watched more than 20 seconds of any monster truck deal. These are disputable memories lol might be way off.

    Funny !!!

    I don’t think I’m thaaaaat redneck, but I do love the Monster Trucks !!!

    ….

    Does anyone need official starting positions posted once everything is said and done?

    Essentially, we’re looking at a combined starting position summed to at least 73 for PD fantasy points, but ….

    At least 2 drivers starting in the Top 10 (preferably at least 1 heat winner from the first 2 qualifiers) and a 3rd driver all starting Top 12….

    Just respond if you do need starting positions that is ….

  • gje627

    And….

    As luck would have it…

    We’re getting a storm….

    So my Directv has gone out way out here in the sticks.

    LOL – I think monster trucks were “in” for a brief period of time in the 80s – least for kids they were. Probably got a Bigfoot & Gravedigger toy in my Mickey D’s happy meal. That was 30 years ago lol effective a$$ advertising!

    I hope nascar.com updates the page I bookmarked – supposed to update the starting positions but who knows.

  • gje627

    Does anybody have the results of heat 4 and heat 5?

    Thanks.

    I finally found it at MRN too.

  • someclevername

    DK showing Creed as 1 but it is Briscoe, right? I’m sure they’ll fix it but I don’t want to rely on them.

    Sorry – never done a lineup like this before lol

  • gje627

    It’s Briscoe ….

    But I’m completely in the dark here TV-wise.

  • gje627

    Listening to the last chance on MRN.

  • gje627

    Just NE of Colorado Springs ….

    In the woods.

    I’ll be pissed if I can’t watch the race.

    As soon as it’s over someone please post the top 2 in the last chance?
