  1. Just as I thought Ford will be running the Mustang in Cup Next year http://nascar.nbcsports.com/2018/04/17/ford-officially-announces-mustang-for-the-cup-series-in-2019/
  2. Well it looks like an Earnhardt in a Cup series race streak ends this weekend as Jeffrey Earnhardt is out of the #00 Camaro http://nascar.nbcsports.com/2018/03/19/jeffrey-earnhardt-starcom-racing-part-ways/ I think this will be the first race since 1979 that an Earnhardt hasn't raced. Landon Cassil is taking over the wheel for the #00 Camaro for the next few weeks http://nascar.nbcsports.com/2018/03/19/landon-cassill-gets-cup-ride-for-martinsville-texas/ .
  3. An Earnhardt @ Daytona tradition will continue for at least another year...Jeffrey Earnhardt to drive the #00 Starcom Racing Chevy Camaro for 2018 Season http://nascar.nbcsports.com/2018/01/30/jeffrey-earnhardt-will-drive-starcom-racings-no-00-in-daytona-500/
  4. Because suv's and trucks are the big sellers these days. Though I don't really see the logic in not redesigning the Fusion as gas prices will inevitably go up sooner or later and then suv's and truck sales will slump as car sales rise again. Doesn't help that Ford's new president didn't even come up through the company's ranks, he was just on the board of Directors since 2013.
  5. Looks like Ford will be running a new car for 2019 http://www.espn.com/espn/now?nowId=21-0747472127799597807-4 I'm guessing it will be a Mustang since the Fusion redesign has been scrapped by Ford's new president
  6. Danica's got a ride for Daytona 500 in the defunct Tommy Baldwin Racing team #7 Chevy that has been bought by Premium Motorsports, Tony Eury jr will be the Crew Chief http://nascar.nbcsports.com/2018/01/22/danica-patrick-has-a-daytona-500-team-premium-motorsports/ DJ Kennington will attempt to Qualify for the Daytona 500 in the Gaunt Bros. racing #96 Toyota http://nascar.nbcsports.com/2018/01/22/d-j-kennington-to-attempt-to-qualify-for-daytona-500-with-gaunt-brothers-racing/ RCR finally confirmed they will be a 2 car team, #3 & #31 Chevy's driven by Austin Dillon & Ryan Newman http://nascar.nbcsports.com/2018/01/23/austin-dillon-richard-childress-racing-looking-to-be-leaner-and-meaner-with-two-car-team/
  7. Not much to report but here's the latest: Circle Sport forms alliance with Go Fas Racing and leases charter for the #32 and will also run the #33 part time for 2018 http://nascar.nbcsports.com/2018/01/17/go-fas-racing-secures-charter-by-partnering-with-circle-sport-racing/ David Gilliland will attempt to make the Daytona 500 with startup RBR Racing http://nascar.nbcsports.com/2018/01/17/todd-gilliland-to-drive-no-4-for-kyle-busch-motorsports-father-to-fill-in-at-daytona/ If things go well it might turn into a full time ride. Danica Patrick has funding for the Daytona 500 & Indy 500 now she just needs to find rides for both races http://nascar.nbcsports.com/2018/01/18/danica-patrick-has-daytona-500-indy-500-sponsor-now-needs-ride/
  8. I'm on the Western side of Lake Erie small world hehe. Kind of sick of the single digit temps as well, wouldn't mind some more snow though for some extra cash.

  10. Wife and I cut our Sunday plans short so I could Install a new battery in a relatives car in 20 degree weather with windchills near zero yesterday because said relative didn't feel like waiting at the auto center for an hour or more for their mechanics to change it Saturday . Would have been done taking the old one out and putting the new one in in half an hour if I didn't have to wait in checkout line at Walmart for 45+minutes, I kid you not it was over 45 minutes because some genius only scheduled one cashier to work the auto section yesterday . Luckily got back in time just before sundown to put the new one in the car.

  12. My ISP started throttling customers back in 2012 and then instituted new plans that include GB limits and when you hit the limit your internet is throttled to the slowest speed till the next billing cycle starts. Where I live I only have 3 choices for internet; my current isp, phone company which can't even get phone service right or a Satellite dish which I would have to pay a 'dish fee' to the apartment complex I live at which would offset the savings of switching. With the current administration businesses are basically in charge of Washington DC more than they have been in the last decade. So if you don't think some big ISP's will take full advantage of this you are living in a dream world.
  13. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year. Heading to the In law's on Xmas eve and maybe heading to the theater on Christmas to see Star Wars depending on how much snow we get.
  14. Blocking websites I don't think will ever happen however I bet a lot of the ISP's will throttle users of streaming services especially where they have a stranglehold on customers.
  15. I think he would have been a great fit at FRR but they are selling their charter for the #77 and don't seem interested in staying a 2 car team. All the really good teams are full but Penske could add a 4th or Chip Ganassi Racing could add a 3rd if they could find good sponsorship for Kenseth and buy one of the open charters. Daytona is quite a ways away so something could happen for Kenseth.
