There is a box you can click on your team page that says "show only entered drivers". After the entry list is out, Yahoo! updates that, so you can only choose a driver that is entered for that week. Beware of picking two drivers that have to get in on time, in case neither does.
If you missed it, you have to check it out - thankfully, no crewman were hurt in the making of this video - the hilarious part is, Brad got penalized "for taking the wrench with him out of the pit box" - the fact that it was in the crewman's hand whom he also took out of the pit-box didn't seem to matter, ROFL! Maybe he was trying to out-do KK's taking the jack around the track under his car - crewman on truck trumps jack under car!
Can't post links here, so search "One of Brad Keselowski's truck crew members hitched a ride at Kentucky"

Also, did only 42 drivers enter because of general financial considerations, or because the track is so hard on cars and drivers? Personally, I think it would have been worth it, financially, for a team that is trying to build to enter - and S&P, for the $. It was also just announced that NASCAR has lost a major sponsor for nest year - Home Depot for Joe Gibbs. Maybe it is just getting so corporate and expensive, people in the sport and fans are giving up.
Personally, I'd love to see a race at Kentucky - it has a lot of personality, from what I understand.
But, when you think of things like Jeff Gordon's back....... and, was it Ryan Truex who got out of his car with a bloody nose from hitting bumps too hard, too fast? - it DOES make you wonder.....

Sometimes that happens around qualifying and just after - not often, but sometimes. It can depend on what server you use - Internet Explorer is not totally compatible with Yahoo! Fantasy Racing, and can do that kind of stuff. Let us know if it continues - I know you are not the first person it has happened to over many years, but it usually straightens out after the Q points get processed.

Mr. Sunday!!!!!!!!!! AWESOME to see you here! The band is getting back together! Thanks for showing up!!!!! (Happy Dance!) (BTW, DonaldM is cool - he's new at posting here this year, but he was still doing the old-timey sarcasm thing we all used to do, to beat the people who only showed up to go "Where are my points?" by the dozens, LOL -
Mr. Sunday, meet Donald M. Donald M, Meet Mr. Sunday, You are both cool and awesome people to have on this board, IMHO!

Oh yeah, I was so happy to see you out here again, I forgot to answer the question: - DS is one of the biggest losers of all times on this board, and he'shere trying to relive his glory days from 10 years ago, ROFLMAO! He's true troll with No MO, except being really boring and unoriginal.....don't waste your time reading his posts, each one is two seconds of your life you can't get back.....

JimmyDee!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - Man, You & Da Goat on the same day, on the same thread? Huge Effen Grin!!!!!! And, Happy Dance!

Rock On, Godfather Racing! Smart, smart, smart this week!
I got stupid, and just used one Penske driver per roster, even tho' I KNEW that's where the Q points are - but, I'm getting low on starts with Bad Brad & Joey, and I didn't want to paint myself into a corner where I'd HAVE to use them if my other drivers looked bad and The Penske Boys didn't look stellar, but were the only way to go.....My mistake.....

Putting a cold one on ice right now - let me see what's on TV- maybe we can kick back tonight and have a little pow-wow with Tater Salad, ROFL - and Bogey, if he wants to join us .....there's a lot of things I've missed while I was on hiatus.....
- JoanieReb JoanieReb Jun 22, 2014 8:21 PM Flag
Razor & Bogey - Okay, & Thanks! You Two would know!
I only follow the NASCAR board, so I didn't realize he was a common fixture on the other boards, too. I mean, he's like the lamest troll ever, so I just felt kind of sorry for him - thought maybe he'd lost his pack and didn't know what else to do but make lame, whiny noises.
Dang - so this really lame stuff really IS his MO? Pathetic.
We haven't had a good troll here in years - not really since Slitherin' - but the one's we have do have longevity, LOL - seriously worthless wastes of board space,.....remember that one ***Wipe with 23 different profiles, who would just spend all his time signing in-and-out-of profiles so he could rate people 23 thumbs down?
When, the truth is, Probably only half that number read the post he was rating & re-rating & re-rating......
Well, if it keeps them in the basement and off the streets (where they'd probably get the X beat out of them) , I guess it's okay by me.

It don't bother me none, Benny - MoToR and I have always been the most harassed posters out here - we take it a compliment - having losers obsessed with you is just the price of stardom, LOL....when people spend a lot of time signing in-and-out on their alternate ID's to give you as many thumbs down as they can, you know you've made The Big Time here, LOL.....

ROFL - That was my first segment three years ago - at least one of my drivers blew up or wrecked every week - I STILL get reminded of it by my buddies who spent the year calling me "Jinx" instead of "Joanie". Hang in - it will turn around, you have time. I didn't have my best season ever, but after coming out of the first segment in something like the 44th percentile, I finished in the 96th, which didn't suck, all things considered....
- JoanieReb JoanieReb Jun 22, 2014 1:08 PM Flag
Ditto what Waco said - but, if he stays out of trouble, he could pull off a top 20. Equipment is less important here - as long as it doesn't blow up, LOL. So, like the plate races, the little guys can surprise.....
- JoanieReb JoanieReb Jun 22, 2014 1:04 PM Flag
Waco - so, Jamie, AJ, Kyle2, and Harvick? Harvick and JamieMac #$%$ me here - Jamie has a tendency to qualify and run well, then run into trouble and finish worse than he races. And, Harvick is just a wildman - but, he's good here - I have him in another game.
Right now, I've got 24, 47, 99, and McDowell. Still not totally sure on my B guys......but, Smoke had that accident at Indy &since he's still recovering from his Big One, it makes me a bit uneasy. And, Marcos isn't looking as strong as usual - but he knows how to get all he can out of these tracks......

Oh, Dear - do you have even the slightest inkling how old and lame that attempted *retort* was? I guess "j a" must stand for "junior achievement" - Cartman on South Park might think it was clever, but Stan and Kyle would roll their eyes at the immaturity.....Like I said: go away, come back with a new ID, and try again. I guess I never realized how lame you really are.....but, back-in-the-day, I thought you were a second ID for The Late Great Troll, *Slitherin' Assassin* - who really WAS quite clever - and whom it turned out you didn't even know who was.....BTW, he accomplished Brilliant troll-dom by the time he died at age 23 that you can't touch cumulatively at about 3 times his age......
- JoanieReb JoanieReb Jun 19, 2014 11:09 PM Flag
Yeppers, Greg - not very well, but I still think about it a lot....DW was recognized as a mechanic as well as a driver..... In the past two years, I think I've seen a driver look at his engine or suspension or get under the car 3 times....
- JoanieReb JoanieReb Jun 19, 2014 11:04 PM Flag
If you click off the "show only entered drivers" option, Tomy IS listed - in the #87 - but since it's the driver, not the car that is recognized by Yahoo, it just might work...
We DO have an extra day to lock in drivers this week (and get to see practices first), so hopefully Yahoo! will have it together by then - accent on *Hopefully*, LOL.....
I wonder what kind of equipment they will give Tomy, as they are associated with MWR - we can get a hint on that by seeing practices. While horsepower is not so important here, position is - so, qualifying up front is a huge advantage.

Hee-hee, we are in sync tonight, Razor - I was just gonna say, it's the biggest stars who get the most loser haters....just comes with the territory.....and here you posted 33 seconds ahead of me....
