    Michigan, we have lift off!!!

    What speeds will they reach on the newly repaved Michigan Speedway this weekend? And could we have Lift Off?!?!? Mark Martin topped the speed in practice today at 201 mph. The real speed came down the front stretch at 218 mph!!! NASCAR says they don’t expect to add a restrictor plate to slow it down because they are “expecting” speeds to be slowed when the track rubber-ups & temperatures rise…. but the drivers are talking. Some of the drivers sound somewhat nervous (Biffle) & Jimmy Johnson has been saying that drivers could be “white-knuckling” it. What kind of race will we have this weekend? ….It could get CRAZY with speeds up to 218 mph...you don’t want a driver bumping another driver at those speeds!!!

    Today, 4 drivers broke 200 mph for overall lap speed…Mark Martin, Dale Jr., Truex Jr.& Harvick….


    This is a copy from my post on the NASCAR board...I don't know where to say stuff anymore but I thought the info was relevant for this weekend....best of luck to everyone :)

    • hagd,talk again soon.

    • That is a good thing about TX, the winters are very mild. I know Austin & the Hill Country very well. Austin is a beautiful city but the traffic is a nightmare I35 & it is the only way to go. I bet the insurance premiums on that metal shop are through the “roof” …lol (pun intended) those saws on an industrial level are monstrous. You must have major safety regs in what you do.


      I'm signing off for now Richard...it took me ages to get back here just to post to you. It is so frustrating...I don't know why I have so many issues with the white screen.....Catch ya later on today :)
      Enjoy your relaxing day & I'll try back later today :)

    • In Austin yes,this city is booming. And the weather makes it possible to do business yr round. I got off of the roof yrs ago,I run the sheet metal shop and the yard now. We, or mostly I make all of our own flashing. I cut it ,break it,but I don't do any soldering anymore. Got tired of inhaling fumes from muriatic acid.

    • My roof is shingles & less than a year old. I am fortunate that all property ground maintenance is handled through my HOA. They have all the contractors. The real issue are the sky lights. They need to get someone out to evaluate those. I just need to be here when they need to check things out & I can do reports/work from my house…LOL…but I am talking on a MB instead. I didn’t know you were in the roofing business till recently…it is a good field

    • Whatever you do,make sure you go with a local established co. If you don't already,you will have out of state trolls roaming your neighborhood looking to make a quick buck(not you John).lol. Pun intended. They will take your $ and the job will not get done.

    • How bad is the roof? Shingles,metal, or tile?

    • Hope your ID works out. That storm last wed. was so bad that it has surpassed the expense of the tornadoes we had hit in April. The storm hit during rush hour traffic as well. You had nowhere to go. I got hit hard... car & house. It came down the size of baseball & softballs. The storm went on for ages with small hail progressing in size…it got really bad!!! I’m dealing with roofers & siding people today & looking at damage on 2 of my skylights. this is the video I posted on other board...unreal…this part of NE Dallas. http://youtu.be/1xFCoZ_Q3uU

    • It's just my main id. I'll get with Yahoo later,I have a feeling that they may not have cut me off at all. My security system may have been down and I was hacked and password changed. We'll see. In the mean time,I'm chillin,I need it. Saw some vids of that hail storm last week,that was some wicked chit! You got a lot of damage?

    • I have major problems getting here...as stated above. As for the Spam, I filter very well with Iggy button & flip it on & off periodically to monitor certain spam out there. I saw you say something about being on vacation this week.....nice

      Also, what is status with your ID...is it just one?

    • It happens to me on occasion,but it's far less a hassle than sifting through spam to find 1 another.
