  5. "Brake Time Is Over" posted by The Vicar on April 24, 2014   (4 comments)

    Another quarter of a season ( well, almost ) is in the can.

    So what have we learned?

    The Daytona 500 became 'The Michael Waltrip All The Time 500'. I really thought, after the prerace show and after his 144 laps we could move on. But alas, no.

    What happens in Vegas should definitely stay there. It must have been a good race, .... Read the rest of this blog

    You may have noticed racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series is quite bearable this year. You may have also heard talk that Brian France is planning to cut horsepower from the engines. We should take a moment to contemplate how that would be implemented and what results we can expect.

    The Nationwide predictions again only had 3 people predict. But that doesn't mean it wasn't close. In fact, the top 3 predictors were separated by a mere 2 points! Yup, you read that right. 2 points! Our Nationwide MVP is kevin20fan yet again with 183 points!

    First off, I must say that I've been disappointed by the turn-outs of this league over the past couple of weeks. I'm not going to shut this down, but just know that the lack of participants isn't exactly motivating me to keep this league going.

    There isn't much better than back to back race weekends.

    When I was first exposed to NASCAR, the consistency of the schedule is one of things I found most amazing. To have a race pretty well every week is very impressive. So whenever there are V8 Supercar events on consecutive weekends, I always get a bit excited.

    Of all adjustments acknowledged by NASCAR commentators, the track bar (or Panhard bar) is the most discussed but least explained. That is disappointing compared to the highly visible nature of often discussed camber. Here is my chance to write something boring and technical again! I'll explain the Panhard bar's location, function, and potential modifications.
