Thanks for the high five Aug yeah, we were pretty close.
Did you guys catch Dale Jr and the other booths guys talking about their fantasy league? Junior said, well it's almost the end of phase 2, and you have to decide about the garage driver, and he says I think I'm keeping Keselowski in there lol

That's where I left him too and then he started kicking butt! If I brought him out I may have had 2 more points. I needed the Demo man to take Harvick out Smile

I do vaguely remember Jr talking about that.  My decision was pretty easy as I had Harvick in the garage with Newman in the starting lineup.  Out with Newman, in with Harvick!  I was hoping Newman did well though.  Now only 3 races left with Harvick.

In baseball news I look forward to the home run derby over the All Star break every year but I don't like the lineup this go around.  I want to see the big boppers in there like Trout, Judge, Stanton, JD Martinez, etc..  Oh well, I'll still watch.  I'll put my money on Harper.  I don't like him but he can hit the ball a country mile.  https://www.mlb.com/news/2018-home-run-derby-field/c-285370616

I kept BB in the garage also. It wasn't worth the point gain to burn him and reduce the number of races I can put him in going forward.

Hey Bills, Aug didn't give you a highfive, he smacked you on the back of your head....lol

I wish I could have seen the end. I made it through round 2. Schwarber was in the middle of all the action. Bregman hit one half way up the wall as time expired to lose by 1 to him in the 1st round. Schwarber advances to round 2 vs Hoskins and had to hit at least 20. He got to 21 in the closing seconds. Then the finale between he and Harper. Good stuff.

LOL Aug. In my defense, I've had a crazy week at work, plus hubby had a chainsaw involved accident at work, and to top it off, I have a skin issue that required a visit to the dermatologist. Perhaps I'd better schedule an eye doctor appointment too.

Thanks San for the info.
Yeah, he has 18 stitches on the top of his hand, I have to take him to the specialist on Tuesday to determine if he has tendon damage .Fingers crossed.

You may be in good shape with 4 for KyBu!  I'm done holding them back and will use them as I see fit.  If I have to have nothing but second stringers for the last 5 races......oh well!!

I did pull BB back out and put him in the garage today since his points weren't beyond Hamlin but you never know what will happen after the end of stage two dammit!

And YEP, I missed the pole pick again  duh

Check out this Post Qualifying Inspection Article/Video.....13 of those puppies including some big dogs...





Inspection alters Pocono lineup, moves Harvick, Kyle Busch to rear

By Staff Report NASCAR.com  July 28, 2018  at 5:59 pm
Post-qualifying tech dealt a Saturday shake-up to the starting lineup for Sunday’s Gander Outdoors 400 after the cars driven by the five of the top six qualifiers — including the initial front row of Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch — failed inspection at Pocono Raceway.

Harvick was fastest in the first and final round of Busch Pole Qualifying, but his No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford did not pass the body scan portion post-qualifying inspection. The same fate occurred with the No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota of second-fastest qualifier Kyle Busch, but his car failed at the chassis station of the inspection process.

The ruling elevated Daniel Suarez, third on the original unofficial speed chart, to a first-time pole winner in the Monster Energy Series. His speed of 176.988 mph in the Joe Gibbs Racing No. 19 Toyota stands as the pole-winning lap of record.

A total of 13 cars failed the inspection process the first time through. Scott Miller, NASCAR Senior Vice President of Competition, explained the process in a media gathering as inspection was nearing its conclusion.

“It’s pretty obvious what’s happened here. There was 13 cars that didn’t pass the post-qualifying inspection,” Miller said. “Most of the problems were centered around the body scan, but not all. Some were mechanical measurements with the rear toe. But quite heavy on the body scans, 13 cars. We’re disappointed in this, but we’re certainly confident in our process and the teams didn’t do a real good job here today.”

In addition to Harvick and Busch, the qualifying speeds for Kyle Larson (initially the fourth-fastest qualifier), Joey Logano (fifth) and rookie William Byron (sixth) were disallowed. Others further back in the field with qualifying speeds thrown out: Clint Bowyer’s No. 14 Ford, Ryan Blaney’s No. 12 Ford, Aric Almirola’s No. 10 Ford, Jimmie Johnson’s No. 48 Chevrolet, Paul Menard’s No. 21 Ford, Austin Dillon’s No. 3 Chevrolet, Bubba Wallace’s No. 43 Chevrolet, Kasey Kahne’s No. 95 Chevrolet.

All 13 will start from the rear of the 40-car field in Sunday’s 400-miler (2:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, MRN, SiriusXM), ranked in order of their rank in the Monster Energy Series standings.

Both Harvick and Kahne’s car failed three times and the penalty for that is the loss of their car chiefs — Robert Smith (No. 4 team) and Ben Leslie (No. 95 team) — and a 10-point penalty in the driver and owner championship standings. Logano and Menard’s cars failed twice and both of their respective car chiefs — Raymond Fox (No. 22 team) and William Curwood (No. 21 team) were ejected as well.

It’s the first season for the new inspection process and NASCAR’s Optical Scanning Station, which maps and checks vehicle bodies for conformance to the rules. It’s also the second time this season that the Monster Energy Series has been subject to inspection immediately after qualifying under the enhanced weekend schedule. The other occurrence was at Chicagoland Speedway, where only four cars lost their starting spots.

“This is only the second time we’ve done this and I don’t think the teams want to be sitting here in this situation, either,” Miller said when asked if the severity of the penalties might change after Saturday’s issues. “But I think they tested the waters and it didn’t work out too good for them today. So, hopefully the next time we have one of these inspections, they’ll be able to get closer to right and we won’t have this.”
