    What do ya'll think about the 5 having the best Hendrix car every week?   They must have had to promise Larson the best car to get him to sign with them is my theory..........................

    Or has he just caught lightning in a bottle as can happen?  Anything is possible. I remember when the IROC identically prepared Camaros were raced, occasionally they didn’t appear to be identical...

    I think he's the best driver. Always had somewhat inferior cars in the past and now that's he has top tier stuff it shows.

    Negative ghostrider....
    You should get in the game.   Make 5 picks, one out of the top 12 in points and let's see how it goes.........you get whatever your cars place in numbers and lowest total wins.  Can't have same cars as someone who has already picked.

    1 thru 5 counting the 1 car. All Hendrick power.

    I have a framed glossy the last time HR ran 1-4 at Talladega.

    Hardly for the win.

    I felt really confident about today. 

    Going to get this framed, and signed.

    Will replace the other.

     I believe they just said this is the first time Hendrick has done so.

    Ouch!

    Having the winner, the 5th and 7th place did me no good.

    The other two were a total of eight laps down at the finish.

    I was thinking about a rule change , tell me what you think.  If your pick's car number matches their finish number, you get 5 points off your score.   Today 5 contestants would have had deductions due to the 19 and the 12.  Would not have changed the outcome however.........

    Dude,
    Your math is giving me a headache at this time of night. Maybe in the light I day I will be able to better understand. I also don't understand where the "hatesme" quotes are coming from, did I miss a different conversation?

    And, by the way, the plate track rules obviously didn't work out on a one mile track. Who knew that the 18 would be the weakest link in the chain?

     I believe they just said this is the first time Hendrick has done so.

    "It has been a rare occurrence, happening only twice in NASCAR’s modern era. With Hendrick’s “Monster Mile” mash still fresh, here’s a breakdown of the 1-2-3-4 team finishes through the record books in NASCAR’s top division."

    Indeed ... what a downer for one of the best short-track drivers.

    Yeah, the plate track rule IS for plate tracks but it could have worked for you at Dover if the 18, and 19 had come anywhere near their expected outcomes............you can never tell.  Maybe you should let it ride in the road race....

    The Hatesme guy showed up for a while and then disappeared.  Don't know if he had help or just ran off.   He seemed like quite the yarn spinner to me............

    He was just a troll. At least I picked the top 3. When I saw the 22 in the back, well y’all know.
