Steering wheels? Where we're going we don't need steering wheels.

I've seen it on I-93, not Route 3.

I also live off of Route 3 near the Mass-NH border, so I'm on it quite a bit.

Ah I see. I'm way south. I'm in Plymouth and there is a section of 3 down here between like Marshfield and Braintree that has it. Makes sense they have the same setup on the north side of the city too.

Larson isn't available until 2017. The 14 isn't available until 2017. How is that not workable?

I am more confused why ARCA doesn't live-stream races that aren't broadcast. I mean, why not? There shouldn't be any contractual barriers, right?

Stewart also says contemplated retiring after this season but saw what it meant to Gordon's fans for 1 last year so decided on 2016

Interesting bit there.

Smoke is also retiring from Cup only and will continue racing, using Modified companion events as a possible place to play.

Because all fucking hell is going to break loose

Smoke's "retirement" is going to be racing every loving type of car/series under the sun and then working his big rear end tractor at Eldora during his rare off-weeks. The best retirement.

I was giving some thoughts to going back for this race, but I don't think the timing is going to work. It's drat shame, but in my life away from this forum and racing I'm an city planner and I have high hopes for what they can do for the Fairgrounds.

I blame Jimmie Johnson.

edit: so it appears as if the current storm track holds, Sunday will probably be a washout as well as Monday. Bear in mind too that Dover doesn't have lights. I'm gonna guess Tuesday, which in that case I'll try and snag some dirt cheap tickets and play hookie for a day

edit2:



Keep in mind that this only represents the probability of where the center of the storm can be at those given intervals. So depending on how expansive the rain bands push north, they might be alright, but it's gonna be close. The storm potentially making landfall in NC might help. Also fun fact, the northeast quadrant of tropical storms/hurricanes typically have the most wind and rain.

I'm just excited that Clint Bowyer's going to join a "who's that?" list of drivers who inherited rides of retired or deceased past champions including Rick Wilson (Richard Petty), Larry Pearson (David Pearson), Mike Alexander (Bobby Allison), Todd Bodine (Darrell Waltrip), Chad Little (Benny Parsons), Jimmy Hensley (Alan Kulwicki), and Kasey Kahne (Bill Elliott).

Of course, on the flipside, there's Kevin Harvick (Earnhardt), Kurt Busch (Rusty), Dale Jarrett (Yarborough), and jury's out on Chase.

I think Bowyer is more category 2 than category 1.

Well category 2, Harvick, Ku Bu and Jarrett, are all champions. Bowyer has 8 wins. Not really championship caliber. Kahne has twice as many wins at 17 if that puts it in perspective at all.

Also under the current format, Harvick (who has arguably been the best team all season) will finish no better than 13th in points. Unless some miracle this weekend of course. Seems like a fair system.

Actually Logano is 22 points ahead of Harvick in non-chase standings, so not that good.
