NZ 2 and 3.


Could very well happen, although I think Scott Dixon is already saving fuel!   :D

It has been an interesting year wherein the teams of the series owner were caught being naughty in Round 1 and DQ'd.  How do you punish the owner of the series?  Well, I guess you let him punish his own team.

I just hope this year's 500 doesn't try for the "must end under green" unwritten rule like last year. 

On a sidebar, there looks like some rain in the forecast.  Some media outlets are actually talking that the race might be run on TUESDAY, for Monday looks like a total washout.  This could impact Kyle Larson doing the Indy/NASCAR double.  I can see him playing it by ear, but I am also guessing the 500 will be run at all costs and NASCAR moved to the back burner.

Let's hope for a good one though!

This is the kind of stuff that should be, and usually winds up in the V8CFL Media Centre!

Is it me or does Brodie seem to look like he has been eating "very well" these days? 

Enjoyed the round.  Can't figure out Broc's lack, though.  Good to see DJR get off of the bar room floor.

Quote from: CP on May 17, 2024, 07:17:01 AMWilly B is confirmed for Sonoma with Childress.

Meanwhile, Cams car is backed by the US Government promoting Build Submarines, and also promoting the AUKUS alliance.

You can't make this up.
RFK and Keselowski, a Ford camp, have had the Build Submarines sponsor on and off this year on that car.  It does make one chuckle, though, eh?

The WA round is fast approaching.  Just a quick reminder for changes:

You are allowed FOUR changes total in Groups A through D.

You are also allowed two reshuffles (total) in Group E – the tiebreaker.

Reshuffles can be made at any time whether you have made any Groups A-D changes or not for that round.

Deadline, as always, is Thursday Midnight Sydney, NSW time.

Try not to yell at the TV too much, Sonic. 

Remember years back they were actually talking about expanding the track?  I guess those ambitions are long gone.  I like this little track, though.  The only quirk over the years was that odd exit kerb on the outside of the last corner that everyone hopped and periodically someone would get penalised for it.

Let me see if I have this straight:  Two 55 lap races ending around dusk with separate quallys but no Top Ten Shootouts.

Five bonus points for the fastest laps?  I am guessing not.

You know, Trev, with your track record at Bathurst wherein the blue ovals come up short every time you are there, should you sit out this year it could be the springboard us Fordies need to get back into the thick of things.

You could take one for the team, so to speak.   :)

This has not all happened due to coincidence.  Brodie does have some culpability here.  I mean, he walked out.  No matter how bad the situation looked, or changed, he was the one that walked out to kick this whole mess off.
