Woot for our first race!
« on: April 27, 2008, 11:20 PM »

Congrats to our top three!  Now that I understand how this works, I will have to do a better job of picking drivers for the next race.  I mostly picked drivers whose names I knew, or who I thought was cute, or in the case of Dario Franchitti, simply because Ant doesn't like him.  :lolp:  (and he's cute  :lolg:)

It was fun to look at who everyone had picked.  I think Dale Jr. was the most popular among us all. 

I'm looking forward to seeing if we can move our team up in the ranks!   :thumbs:

Ant, correct me if I'm wrong, but I think anyone who would like to join us can still do so?  We've got a good team going and the more the merrier!

Don't worry Kat, it's all about luck anyway. We knew a lady who bet on the horses and won a lot and she would only bet on gray horses. :lolg:

Pay no attention to Ant, I like Dario too, a Scotsman with an Italian name in an American sport!! :thumbs:

Thanks Papa!  I'm definitely keeping him on my list. 

Is Dale Jarret done now?  I thought this race was supposed to be his last, but he was listed as NE on this one.  I'm not sure what that stands for.

NE means not entered, He can continue to race if he wishes and has a team that needs him but for all intended purposes he has retired from racing I think Bristol was his last or his first he sat out.

Sigh, yes Bristol was DJ's last race.

That was sure a fun race to watch thanks to our new fantatsy league. Yes, anyone can still join and all you have to do is just pm me for the password. The link is in the sticky at the top of this forum.

And as far as Dario goes, well, what can I say? His wife is gorgeous, (Ashley Judd) so obviously he has great taste in women, and as long as he stays out of the way of my drivers, he is ok in my book.  :rofl1: But papaduck has the right idea Kat, never listen to me. I know nothing, rofl.

This was fun and made me forget my vmk ban blues for a while. I can't wait for next week's race. Woot!

That's the only thing I don't like about him Ant - his wife.  I'm not a fan of the Judds.   :td:

I'll miss DJ, I always liked him and his dad, they seemed like good salt-of-the-earth people.

Does Danica Patrick ever race NASCAR?  It would be nice to have a girl to support.

Danica toyed with the idea of racing NASCAR either last year or the year before. I am not sure I am for the idea of women in NASCAR. I just love it when they say, "gentlemen, start your engines". And if a lady was racing, that would just mess that whole thing up.

A few years back there was a lady in NASCAR that I remember, Shawna Robinson. It turns out that there have actually been about 14 ladies that have raced in NASCAR over the years. Janet Guthrie was in the most races, 33, back in 1976 -1980. Idk, Danica is too pretty to be a NASCAR driver, lol, she might break a nail. ROFL, how sexist do I sound right now?

Some tips for some of you that have not played the fantasy racing game.

Try not to pick the same drivers every week, you can only use a driver I think 8 or 9 times per year. Each week you have to pick 2 A drivers, 4 B drivers, and 2 C drivers. You get extra points if any of these qualify in 1st through 4th places. Now after they qualify you go back and pick only 1 A driver, 2 B drivers, and 1 C driver for the race, the others will not score points for you. You do however keep the qualify points of a driver even if you don't start them in the race.

Thanks so much Gas. I read the scoring thing on yahoo yesterday and still didn't understand it, but you said it very clear. Thanks!
