Blog entries from May 2014:

  1. "All-Time Auto Racing Re-Draft: Draft Starts Tomorrow" posted by The Long Shot on May 31, 2014   (7 comments)

    So I've decided to make a couple of changes. Unless someone has a major issue with it, I am going to remove Grand-Am from this. The reason is that the series hasn't lasted long enough and not enough people follow it to make it worthwhile. If people want it back in, I'll gladly re-implement it, but for the time being I don't see the point.

  2. "TUSCC Round 5 - Belle Isle" posted by David on May 29, 2014   (5 comments)

    This Saturday, the Prototypes and Grand Touring Daytonas take to the track in the Motor City for an ultimate showdown between the American nameplates of Chevrolet and Ford versus the "foreign invaders", ranging from Porsche and BMW to Mazda and Audi.

    Points will be awarded on the normal scale this week.

    Another greatest day in racing is in the can.

    If you're not a total racing nut and have to spend 12 plus hours in front of the TV like many of us, here's some tips to enjoy the experience over Memorial Day weekend:

    Saturday night watch 'Rush' and 'Senna'. Now you're psyched. Get up early Sunday morning (7 EDT) and watch the F1 prerace .... Read the rest of this blog

    I do not have the points ready yet, but they will be out sometime this week. Remember, picks for BOTH races must be in by the due date. You can pick drivers up to two times. If you think he will win both, put him on both sides of the slash. I only a count a driver toward one race, so if say Mike Conway wins both races, I will only get win credit ....

    So I've been doing this All-Time NFL Re-Draft on another forum, and I've really had a lot of fun with it. This got me thinking: why couldn't we do the same for NASCAR? And if we can do it for NASCAR, why can't we do it for all of auto racing? And so the All-Time Auto Racing Re-Draft was born.

    The format would be fairly simplistic. There would .... Read the rest of this blog

  15. "A 200 MPH Lap At Charlotte? WHAAAT?!?" posted by Avery on May 21, 2014   (1 comment)

    Before I began watching qualifying for this year's All-Star Race, I made a prediction as to what the fastest time on the first lap of qualifying would be. I predicted somewhere in the 27.60s. This made sense since the fastest first lap in last year's All-Star qualifying was in the 27.90s. A 3-tenths gain seemed reasonable given the increase in speed .... Read the rest of this blog

    The polesitter of the 2014 Indianapolis 500 mile race wasn't decided Sunday until the final car screamed down the front straightaway to log the last of four fast laps. It literally came down to the final seconds.

  18. "In Memory of Sir Jack Brabham" posted by NicoRosbergFan on May 19, 2014   (2 comments)

    Formula has lost its greatest improviser of all time.

    Jack Brabham passed away this morning at the age of 88. He was one of the legends of the 1960s, and his 3 titles at the time of his retirement was good for second best all-time. His 14 wins is also equally impressive given that he raced in the same era as Moss, G. Hill, Clark, Surtees, .... Read the rest of this blog
