Don't thank me just yet, Trev.  I have referred people before and in some instances it has turned into Hell in a hand basket.   ;D

I am sure we ALL know that situation.

Naw...... Cdnguy is a straight up good guy.

Yeah.  The 500 for the Cup cars was just rolled back to Monday, too.  Rain all weekend in that part of Florida.  This took no one by surprise.  You could see it happening earlier in the week.

Xfinity (+SVG) will run first followed by Cup (-SVG).  Xfinity starts at 11:00 p.m. EST here.

Yeah, a Canadian friend of mine, now ours.  We were both on another site 10-12 years back that eventually folded.  Good guy this Cdnguy.  Glad to have him aboard here.

I was going by the blue bucket hat I zeroed in on.  Must have been some other good looking photographer bloke, eh?   :)

Quote from: mikeamerica84 on February 06, 2024, 11:36:15 PMTip us off as to what kind of hat you might be wearing, or something if the sort.

it will likely be a blue bucket hat. the dreads will stand out, getting pretty long now! think we all have to wear pink series vests too so we will all stand out if we get anywhere near a tv camera! :)

Were you down inside Turn 4 for the first Trans-Am race, Sonic?

Quote from: Mechz on February 12, 2024, 01:24:50 AMWould love to hear what Larko thinks about all of this. No doubt he will be silenced by the producers before any cameras get switched on in a few weeks.

Also be funny to see Brodie sitting on the hill at Skyline with a Coke in hand for the first round.
It'd be even funnier if Betty was in the garage drinking a Pepsi.   :D

No one drinks that piss
I am just thinking that if Pepsi approached Erebus in the right way, they could plaster their names on the side of the cars for a song.  Erebus could recoup a little cash and it would make for good publicity, too - the rival cola company.

R&K Motorsports


Gorokan, NSW – As R&K Motorsports have finally sorted out their 2024 driver situation after Brodie Kostecki stormed out of camp in a fit of rage while watching his bank account drop by at least five digits somehow, the unveiling of their Dark Horse Gen 3 Ford Mustang and livery was being highly anticipated.

Team Principal Mike addressed the crowd while they were enjoying their free souvenir bananas.



"Thank you all for coming out today.  I think everyone knows that our driver situation was in a state of flux,
but with the help of The Yellow Group, our primary sponsors, we have secured the services of Todd Hazelwood for this season!"


Some fans in attendance looked skeptical and signaled that this could be a bad signing.




"Todd," continued Mike, "Come on up and say a few syllables!"


"Thanks, Mike!  I see this as the greatest opportunity in my career, which has been mired in the mid-pack at best on a good day. 
I hope to keep the driving standards at R&K at the usual highest level."

Todd was apparently oblivious of the fact that the team's previous driver was Jack Smith and the bar is not set all that high.



"That aside," continued Mike, "I would also like to announce that we now have the services of one Ludo LaCroix! 
Ludo has decided to join us as he had nothing better to do with his life this year.  Let us all welcome him!""

Cheers filled the air!


"Merci!  Merci beaucoup! 



Meanwhile, back at The Yellow Group Headquarters....


"Who in the hell is this Ludo guy?"




"He's French.  He's here to help."





"Wow.  You don't hear THOSE two sentences used in the same context very often."




Mike then pointed out that with Ludo coming aboard as Team Engineer, the American sparkling water company LaCroix
has also signed up as an associate sponsor. 



It was, however, noted that their product is called 'la-CROY', not 'la-QUA'.



"la-CROY... la-QUA... la-CROTCH.... am I having a nightmare?"



The car, dressed in the livery designed for R&K Motorsports by their close associate Helix, was unveiled.



A tribute to the late Albert the Cat, who will always be in our hearts as our mate, was affixed to the front guards by our friend, Helix.


The diehard R&K fans in attendance went wild!




Mike concluded. "Thank you all for coming.  Feel free to take pictures of the car, Todd, and Ludo. 
Just please dispose of your banana peels in the proper receptacles.  We don't want anyone slipping on them."


He then lastly added, "Feel free to get your pictures with the Valvoline girls, too.  They are back onboard this year. 
Associate sponsors, but prime representatives."

Welcome back, Troy!  I'd like to see someone make a livery for that Bundaberg car.

We sit at seven now.  All returnees so far.

Just remember that you can change you rosters without penalty prior to the start of the season deadline.
