- "Predictions - The Detroit Triple" posted by Hinch27 on May 27, 2013 (14 comments)
It's time for the first of three double-header weekends in IndyCar. This means you have to pick TWO races. Your picks MUST SPECIFY which race they are four. If you pick for only one race and don't label your picks, I will count them as whichever set of picks gives you fewer points.
IndyCar Detroit Race 1 picks:
1. Takuma Sato

Sorry for taking so long on the results folks ;) Thanks to all who played. You made this weekend special for this competition as some of these series had more predictions than the NASCAR Predictor Cups on 24over48's side of the picture.
IndyCar MIPA goes to RichardHead for picking Tony Kanaan to win!

I know you've all been waiting for this and I do apologize for the extended delay. Nationwide and Sprint Cup points will be posted after this weekend when I have time and the Exhibition champion who won the 15 bonus points will be announced then as well. Many things have popped up and I haven't been able to put this league among my priorities. But things .... Read the rest of this blog
- "Evil Double" posted by Uptight Motorsports Nerd on May 23, 2013 (7 comments)
Much has been said over the years about the Memorial Day Weekend double: racing at both the Indianapolis 500 and the Coke 600. It is time to investigate the challenges associated with a different sort of double that same weekend. Could a driver compete in both the Monaco Grand Prix and Coke 600 in a single day?

- "Exciting All-Star Race or Worst Race Ever?" posted by NASCARgirl01 on May 22, 2013 (0 comments)
So it seems as if there were a lot of fans unhappy with the Sprint All-Star race last weekend. I personally enjoyed it - the drivers raced each other hard and the crew chiefs had to be on top of their strategy. Even the Sprint Showdown had a lot of racing, for as short as it was. I think everyone expected Martin Truex Jr. to win and race his way .... Read the rest of this blog
- "Predictions - The Greatest Weekend of the Year" posted by Hinch27 on May 21, 2013 (18 comments)
Generally, the three biggest races in the world are considered to be the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race, the Monaco Grand Prix, and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The best part is that Indianapolis and Monaco are the on the SAME weekend!
Predictions are opening for both the Indianapolis 500 and the Monaco Grand Prix.

I am posting the updated standings next week.
The rules are simple: post both your Showdown and All-Star picks here. Do NOT put Showdown drivers in with All-Star picks. I will omit Showdown drivers from the All-Star race, and drivers who finished below transfer drivers will be moved up a spot (exactly like 24over48's game). The winner of the ....

I understand some of you are mad I haven't posted points yet. I do apologize, I've had a lot going on lately but my schedule will open up again starting this weekend so I will be able to get everything back on track. Once again, I do apologize for any inconvenience.

- "They'll Do a Lame Version Anyway" posted by Uptight Motorsports Nerd on May 15, 2013 (3 comments)
To state the obvious, there should be an All-Star Race for the Nationwide Series. Minor leagues usually have their own All-Star games, and the Nationwide Series regulars could use an attention boost. The less obvious questions follow. Where should it be held? What are the entry criteria? Will there be Buschwackers?
The entry criteria could .... Read the rest of this blog

Well, it's that time. Since it's the middle of May (can it be mid-May already?), and the Indianapolis 500 is less thn two weeks away from it's 97th running, I think it's time for me to reveal my listing o the 33 greatest drivers in Indianapolis 500 history. I will be revealing this list as a starting grid, and in true Indianapolis 500 fashion, it will .... Read the rest of this blog

I have attended a lot of races and gone to several tracks in the past few years, but only a few days have produced so many memories that I will never forget as being at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Saturday. My Dad, a friend and me went over last year for Opening Day and again on Carb Day, but the last time I had been at the track was in July .... Read the rest of this blog

Now accepting predictions for the Indianapolis 500 pole. Remember, getting this pole correct gives you a 13 point bonus. These picks MUST be in by 11:00 AM on Saturday! I will make my own prediction later in the week when we understand which cars are fast or not.

So sue me for copyright infringement!
My mother and I discovered the most incredible way to have fun together while inundating ourselves with NASCAR. Here's how it works: one person pulls up a race (my mother and I prefer pre-1990 NASCAR and pre-2004 CART, IndyCar, and F1). The other person must guess the cars that are in the top-10. This ....

After some serious thought, I will not count the picks at either Richmond or Talladega. So, you can still drop your lowest finishers from Kansas. Check last week's post for the standings.

- except for who's leading the points. Baseball in March and March Madness in April. Qualifying preempted by an auto auction. (Isn't it called SPEED TV and not sitting parked tv? It'll probably only get worse when Fox takes over.) Pit Crew Competition cancelled due to lack of interest. Kevin Harvick and Tony Stewart have appointed themselves the Nascar ....

Most are probably a little worse for wear and will be sore this week, but they are well enough to race again next weekend. It's been a few superspeedway .... Read the rest of this blog

I am sorry for posting so late again, but I suppose it won't matter, since the weather forecast looks bleak. Very, VERY bleak.
Because of the short time frame for posting picks last week, I am not counting predictions for Richmond. This means that if any player still wants to drop picks from Kansas, they can do so. To refresh your memory, and .... Read the rest of this blog

I still have not been able to catch up with points. I'm currently 2 weeks behind.
Since Nationwide predictions were late last week, no points were taken. This week will be double points for Nationwide, and since it's Talladega, it would almost be a normal points week.
Not only is the Nationwide race special for the double points, but .... Read the rest of this blog
- "Your Punishment Must Be More Severe" posted by Uptight Motorsports Nerd on May 1, 2013 (5 comments)
A lot has been said about NASCAR's penalty for Matt Kenseth's engine. I am probably in the minority here, but I think the penalty was too light. NASCAR did everything shy of taking the win away, and that's the thing they should have done above all else.
I know it's only 3 grams! It should not matter if we're talking about 3 grams or 3 tons. .... Read the rest of this blog
