  1. By the way ... I'm pretty sure this is his first big block win, period. Haven't been able to confirm that, but it's pretty cool if it is. A throwback to Harry peek winning the Fond 200.
  2. People still say he's cocky. The kid put his money where his mouth is. as long as the cockiness isn't arrogance, big deal. Like PatsJags14 said ... the excitement of seeing him fend off the onslaught of challengers was all you needed. Matt had a nose in front of him a few times, then Larry, then Billy, and Mat and Stewie were coming fast at the end. I don't think many of us thought he was going to hold them off but he did. Anyway ... say what you want about the kid ... he put on a hell of a show and gave us our money's worth.
  3. Can anyone clarify? Stewie's car has a Bicknell sticker on the nose and no DKM identifiers anywhere. He didn't mention anything on victory lane.

    The Science to Surfaces

    This is a good post. You guys better start arguing soon or it'll die off quickly. I'm probably wrong, but it seems to me that bigger tracks suck when they are too tacky, while smaller tracks seem to weather it a bit better. I don't think the texture, moisture, smoothness and other factors are as important as balancing out the lanes so they are pretty equal. For instance, Turn 1 at Fonda is only 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 lanes, but from the middle of 2 til the end of the front stretch, the lanes are so even that you'll see passes on the far inside and far outside that would make anyone argue over which is faster. The end result is many finishes that are decided by a few inches. So ... my vote is that it's all about the lanes, not the surface.
  5. Fullbrew ...You want to watch your mouth. LOL
  6. Back Despite Popular Demand ... GasketCase's Return THURDSAY @ 7:30 (You'll need FaceBook to see the premiere)
  7. All that aside, he is one of the funniest comedians ever.
  8. Yes, it definitely makes me that much less of a musician when I play a song and follow the original riff note for note. Absolutely. Even when I do an "original" solo, when I listen back I'll say, "stole that from Mayall .... learned that part from playing along with Gary Moore's guitar note for note ... that was such a ripoff of Sonny Terry that he'd be rolling in his grave if he could hear it". I failed miserably in not mentioning George or Groucho right off the bat. You got me there. They were like Cosby ... they didn't need "dirty talk" to be funny. And ... speaking of people who did have to swear to be funny ... this is one of my favorite routines ...
  9. Mother of God. No one said your ass is limited. Carlin? Yes. At the top where he belongs. Pryor? He took Red Foxx's gig a step further and reached new heights. Joan Rivers? Funniest woman ever. Period. The Stooges? Unequaled Matthau? One of my favorite actors of all time ... but they were someone else's lines. Cosby?Yep. Don't care what anyone says. true comic genius. Dennis Leary? He cracks me up, but he doesn't belong in the same group as Carlin and Pryor. But you are skewed if you think most of your list is spot on. The second half is almost entirely people who used lines written by others. And the most glaring omission .... Jackie Gleason
  10. I was in Larsen's office when Shepard called and heard the whole conversation on speakerphone. Here is a transcript of the whole conversation ... Shepard: "That piece of $#*@ cost me a hundred grand". Larsen: "You finished third and you had plenty of time to get to the front". Shepard: "Okay. It was seventy grand. And he's still a piece of $#*@" Larsen: "Stop calling Mike names or I'll wrap that cape around your neck and choke the living $#*@ out of you". Shepard: "And I'll never race at your track again". Larsen: "Not even starting pole in the 200 in a Halmar car"? Shepard: " I already have the best car. I want your money". Larsen: "You'll have to win my money". Shepard: "I can't because you won't let me race at your piece of $#*@ track". Larsen: "This conversation is going nowhere, fast". Shepard: Then quit talking and start writing the check". Larsen: "How much?" Shepard: "Nothing. I just wanted to know that you would pay me". Larsen: "Okay. Then what's the problem? Just come down for Eastern States". Shepard: "Can I have Stewie's parking spot"? Larsen: "No" Shepard: "Then I'll take a Halmar car". Larsen: "No". Shepard: "A few minutes ago you said I could". Larsen: "Tough $#*@" Shepard: "I better at least get an apology from Gurda" Larsen. "Not happening. Again ... tough $#*@" Shepard: "Then what are you going to give me"? Larsen: "A chance to win the race that you've never been able to win". Shepard: "Okay. But you and Mike are still pieces of $#*@". Larsen: "And so are you, Matt". Shepard: "Thank you". Larsen: "You're welcome. See you at Eastern states in Victory Lane. You can present Stewie with the trophy". Shepard: "&%*# you and Gurda too. I'm winning it". Larsen. "We love you too. See you in October".
  11. Mother of God! I couldn't even watch the whole thing. Miller is probably watching it on loop.
  12. Judging by his limited/skewed idea of what funny is, I'm pretty sure he'd be a Ferrell fan.
  13. Not bad. I should sue them for infringement, but it's not bad at all. What the hell do you consider funny? Will Ferrell?
  14. I know that there's a point somewhere in your response. 🤣
  15. You're opinion doesn't count. You have a stick up your @$$, you old goat.
  16. Stewy would do a tricycle race at the playground.
  17. I never heard about it. Why didn't they do it a stock car track and advertise it?
  18. I agree. The racing was great. I even enjoyed the karts and minis ... after complaining for 15 minutes beforehand because they were running them. Seeing Varin in the kart gave me a great idea .... a kart race with "top shelf" modified drivers from various local tracks. I bet the place would be mobbed.
