I'm looking forward to this race. Hopefully we get good weather. Wish it was still 500 miles.

Gl bud.

I was thinking Mark as well early but have backed off him a bit. Newman may be a good play this week.

i wish one of the races was 400 and the other 500    when these races were 500 miles it made for more strategy calls by the crew chiefs....

I like the switch to 400 miles. The shortening of the race and the change to double file restarts have both benefited Pocono immensely. People always bag on Pocono for being boring, and maybe historically it had been, but now it's one of the best tracks on the circuit.

Never going to happen, but would love to see this a 300 mile race, then it would cut out some of the cruise control factor they get in mid way during the race.

Hey Tree you see Golden Nuggett's CFB early lines out? They got your Sooners 16 pt. favorites over my Mounties already. If Oklahoma has anything i'm taking them. WVU got 2 fresh new QB's and neither one of them could hit the broad side of a barn in the spring football game.

Forgot this is a Nascar thread for a moment so here's my input:

1) $50 on Austin Dillon to win Nationwide race tonight at +425

2) 

PISS ON 48

Jury is still out on OU. I think they may have a down year this year unlike some reports I've read.

Johnson ran that same chassis last year at Indy led 99 0f 160 laps.Had a restart with 19 to go and he won by 4.75 seconds.

 Before he took this chassis to Indy he unloaded it at Dover led 289 of 400. Restarted with 30 to go and won by 2.5 seconds.

Now that it dominated at Pocono, led 128 of 160. What do you think Johnson he will be unloading at Indy??? 


Exactly

I have already circled that race, and it will be my biggest wager of the year. 48 will do exactly what he did last year at Indy.
