    Here's the Gen 7 Cup cars https://www.jayski.com/2021/05/05/manufacturers-unveil-nascar-next-gen-cars/ Unfortunately with this there will ultimately be layoffs following the final race of this season as teams will not need chassis or body fabricators as well as other jobs that will now be handled suppliers https://m.nascar.com/news-media/2021/05/05/vendors-parts-suppliers-list-next-gen-car/ Wonder how long it will be before they move to a single engine manufacturer like they did in the truck series.

    Nascar's explanation https://nascar.nbcsports.com/2021/05/03/elton-sawyer-chris-buescher-tyler-reddick-nascar-explains-delay-on-caution-for-errant-tire/ love this line "We don’t want to get in the middle of that as the league."
  4. A while back I seen a documentary on her on the local PBS station. She didn't take crap from nobody. It was said that her and the Queen had a contentious but mutually respected relationship.

    Basically it was. I thought Nascar was done "manipulating" races after Brian France was ousted but apparently not. Phantom Cautions became a running gag for years, it was so bad at one point Fox commentators were even joking about them. They should have called the caution for the tire when it rolled away from pitlane instead of waiting for the last car that had not pitted yet to pit, then they waited another few laps after that car pitted to throw the caution. It just reeks of race fixing. And Nascar Officials wonder why Nascar is not taken seriously as a Motorsport in the rest of the wor

    Nascar Officials once again created controversy with cautions in both the Truck and Cup series races. In the truck race they seemed to randomly call a caution for spinning trucks one time but not other times. In the Cup series with 30 laps to go it was for a tire that was neither on the pit lane or anywhere near the track. Even Jeff Gordon, Clint Bowyer and Mike Joy said there was no need for the caution just before the yellow flag was thrown. Surprise surprise Kyle Busch won the Buschy McBusch 400 race after Nascar's BS tire caution caused multiple wrecks and cautions. Kyle Larson domin
  7. Was our 17th anniversary yesterday. Since we're vaccinated we went to the movie theater for the first time since 2019. Seen Godzilla vs Kong, good action packed movie though some of it was predictable. Only four other people showed up, of course they picked the same row to sit that we did lol but they were quiet. Theater's got to be losing money airing a movie for just 6 people though. Wouldn't surprise me that at least one of the 3 local multi-plex theater's will be closed permanently within the year. Have a good weekend.

    Here's the ultra confusing format for the all star race https://nascar.nbcsports.com/2021/04/28/chase-elliott-denny-hamlin-martin-truex-joey-logano-kyle-larson-nascar-all-star-race-format-revealed/ Good luck following this during the race. The starting lineup will be set by a random draw. The first round is 15 laps. An inversion will take place (minimum of eight cars and maximum of 12) before the second round, which is 15 laps. The entire field will be inverted before the third round, which is 15 laps. Another inversion will take place (minimum of eight car
  9. Tuesday I transformed a bare concrete front porch/patio with four planters. In two large round pots at the east and west corners I planted large Elephant Ear bulbs which should get about 5-6 feet tall for a bit of privacy with a surround of Petunias which will hopefully drape over the side. In between those large pots I placed two rectangular raised garden bed planters with various flowers. Then I surrounded the area with a small plastic picket fence, it's not the size I would have chose but it's what the homeowner wanted. I'm looking forward to seeing it in a month or so when the plants have
