    Yes, we did good. I was really hoping Larson would do better. He's so talented, and unlike the other Kyle, he's a nice guy. -- Busch is a good guy, too. He still has his moments, though.

    I know during the year, several people on TV have picked Hamlin to win the championship. I hope they're right. That's who I'm pulling for.

    Final 4 for the championship:

    1. Kyle Busch - has no weakness, can win at any track & has the best pit crew out there
    2. Hamlin - he is hungry for a title & he is running better each week
    3. Logano - he is the defending champ & he has confidence
    4. Harvick - had a slow start to the season but is really getting hot & peaking at the right time & he also has a ton of confidence

    In the end i think either hamlin gets his first or harvick gets a second

    Some news that involves both IndyCar and NASCAR. Penske Corporation just bought IMS and the IndyCar series.

    I love road courses. I'm a little disappointed with F1 right now, but they go to some beautiful tracks.

    I see what you did there Peanut, you took Larson over Logano.

    We all know how "team orders" go in NASCAR.
    Maybe they try for a while at Daytona or Dega to
    run fords with fords, toys with toys, chevys with chevys
    but once a driver gets separated, he's on his own.
    And then 20 laps to a stage finish or a checker,
    team mates will trade paint to get those points.

    I'm more concerned with the small teams that
    are dependent on the big money teams. idk
    Wasn't a radio call intercepted a few years ago ?
    Oh well, today's NASCAR is focused on entertainment.

    .
    Larson is more of a wishful thinking kind of thing.

    He's very popular with the other drivers. That impresses me.

    It was good to see. TRD has a good driver development program. They haven't always been able to keep them, but they have gone to good teams.


    IndyCar at Laguna Seca tomorrow for the final race. Not crazy about the double points (Indy 500, too). Pulling for Newgarden. Don't want Rossi.

    First 4 out:

    1. Newman
    2. Bowyer
    3. Almirola
    4. Bowman

    Final 4:

    1. Kyle Busch
    2. Denny Hamlin
    3. Harvick
    4. Larson



    I have the same concerns. Some things happen, unintentionally. Some things I wonder about. In F1, they're really big on "team orders" (which drives me crazy). I just hope it doesn't go that far.

    Well it's that time of year again for playoffs, so let's do the predictions shall we...

    First 4 out:

    1.Newman - he simply doesn't run well enough early on to get satge points
    2. Almirola - started the year off very strong but hasn't run well the past couple months, too inconsistent.
    3. Byron - too inexperienced for the big stage of the playoff pressure
    4. Larson - this may be a bit of a surprise because he can run up front & contend for wins but this team has way too many mistakes & bad finishes & it only takes 1 bad race to seal your fate if you don't go win

    Final 4 for the championship:

    1. Kyle Busch - has no weakness, can win at any track & has the best pit crew out there
    2. Hamlin - he is hungry for a title & he is running better each week
    3. Logano - he is the defending champ & he has confidence
    4. Harvick - had a slow start to the season but is really getting hot & peaking at the right time & he also has a ton of confidence

    In the end i think either hamlin gets his first or harvick gets a second

    Bold predictions PA, I have to give you credit for putting them out there up front !!! :thumb:

    Vegas always get hyped into a Busch Bro Battle because they are from that area.
    Kurt has a good car but we can never count Kyle out until it's over.
    Bowyer got P1 but we'll see how that shakes out.

    My concern, and has been since the playoff system was initiated, is that cars which
    aren't even in the playoffs make "mistakes", sideswipe leaders, blow tires and hit the
    wall; they frequently affect contenders even causing "big ones" knockin out good cars.
    It happens all the time. Untimely cautions that benefit certain cars makes me wonder.

    I know we'll never see the old Winston Cup point system again because NASCAR
    makes money off of the playoff hype but it was the best way to run a season.

    In the end, you are probably right again PA for the Homestead showdown !!!

    "Let's go racin' boys" !!!...(DW)
