Blog entries from November 2013:

  1. "F1 2013 Post-season review" posted by Biscuits In A Red Bull on November 30, 2013   (4 comments)

    Well, here we are again everyone. The 2013 season has sent us all around the globe, to many exotic (and some slightly dangerous) locations, and the season... ...was largely dull. Why? Because when Adrian Newey, the best engineer on the grid, makes a car for Sebastian Vettel, now the best driver on the grid, you'd expect all 9 second-half-of-the-season ....

  2. "Looking Ahead to 2014 Predictor Cups" posted by NicoRosbergFan on November 24, 2013   (7 comments)

    I need YOUR opinion before I make changes to the point system for next year in some ways.

    Points system remains the same, with IndyCardouble headers using the format seen in Houston. However, I am considering doing one of the following: either giving only ten points and/or taking away MIPA eligibility for that round to people who pick a correct .... Read the rest of this blog


  3. "Final F1 Predictor Cup Standings" posted by NicoRosbergFan on November 24, 2013   (4 comments)

    JG24FF got his first MIPA of the year by scoring 27 points!!

    F1 Standings after US:

  4. "Major Announcement for All Fantasy Leagues" posted by David on November 21, 2013   (13 comments)

    Announcing...The Racing-Reference Fantasy Predictor's Cup!!

    I am happy to reveal this new award for 2014 and beyond! This award, originally the brainchild of The Long Shot, will be given to the best overall predictor across all series over the course of the year. It has .... Read the rest of this blog


  5. "RR Fantasy 2014: Home Tracks League" posted by The Long Shot on November 21, 2013   (1 comment)

    Hello,

    Since everybody else is posting their end-of-year blogs now, I'd figure that now would be the best time for this blog to get posted as well, so here it is.

    As you all undoubtedly know, the Home Tracks prediction series will no longer be directly affiliated with the NASCAR prediction series (e.g. they will no longer be posted .... Read the rest of this blog


  6. "Now What To Do On Sunday?" posted by The Vicar on November 20, 2013   (2 comments)

    Another memorable season is in the can.

    If Nascar has zero tolerance for teams manipulating a race, shouldn't we expect the same out of Nascar? Probably not. And if they need positive proof of manipulation, we may never again see them come down with the hammer ( or was it a mallet ? ).

    All sports organizations manipulate to keep the .... Read the rest of this blog


  7. "F1 Predictions Brazil" posted by NicoRosbergFan on November 19, 2013   (8 comments)

    Sorry about this... I am inundated with HW, family, and a girlfriend, so I haven't had the opportunity to do the standings.

    Here we go into the final race!!!!

    F1 Predictions Brazil: due by Sunday 11/24/13 @ 11 AM EST .... Read the rest of this blog


  8. "2014 Fantasy Kickoff!" posted by 24over48 on November 19, 2013   (27 comments)

    The 2013 season is now over, and the means the 2014 season is just around the corner. The Fantasy season next year will be simple. Just comment your Top-10 prediction on the appropriate post and receive points based on your prediction. You must use one line per name, do not number your predictions, type both first and last name (and "Jr." if necessary), .... Read the rest of this blog


  9. "NASCAR Predictor Cup FINAL Standings/Announcements" posted by The Long Shot on November 19, 2013   (8 comments)

    After a grueling 9 months, the NASCAR season has come to an end. And of course, with that comes the end of the fourth annual NASCAR Fantasy Predictor Cup. All 3 championships were technically still up for grabs (some more than others, admittedly). For the final time this year, here are the standings.

    We'll start with Nationwide, as that was .... Read the rest of this blog


  10. "Cup statistics by state" posted by Spen on November 17, 2013   (2 comments)

    Further proof that I have entirely too much free time on my hands. The only major stat I didn't include was starts, because that would take too long. If anyone's crazy enough to add that up, feel free.

    State Name/Wins/Top 5's/Top 10's/Poles/Lead Laps/Championships
    North Carolina 754 3602 6629 577 189886 26
    South Carolina 234 1008 1716 248 66144 .... Read the rest of this blog


  11. "1956, alternate history version!" posted by Spen on November 16, 2013   (2 comments)

    Going into Shelby, Buck already would have had a seventeen point lead, thus making everything that went down between Speedy and Herb totally unnecessary. Which likely would have changed NASCAR history significantly.

    1. Buck Baker 7427
    2. Herb Thomas 6846 (-581)
    3. Lee Petty 6464 (-963)
    4. Speedy Thompson 6167 (-1260)

  12. "Green Flag: Electric Cars" posted by Uptight Motorsports Nerd on November 16, 2013   (0 comments)

    Once upon a time, nobody knew which power plant was best suited to the horseless carriage. Some people (the Stanley twins for example) thought steam power was the way to go. Steam engines worked well in the iron horse (not to be confused with the steel horse Jon Bon Jovi rides), but despite their excellent range and silent power plant, long periods ....

  13. "Goodbye Franchitti" posted by Biscuits In A Red Bull on November 14, 2013   (3 comments)

    Just thought I'd start a page for people to post their goodbyes to Dario Franchitti, the 4-time IndyCar champ and 3-time Indy 500 winner who has had to retire from racing early (aged 40!) after those injuries from his horrible crash at Houston are a step too far for him to continue.

    31 wins in CART/IndyCar isn't too bad for a Scot, and frankly .... Read the rest of this blog


  14. "the safety car" posted by Kubica Fan Ireland on November 12, 2013   (4 comments)

    This post will look at what Jimmie Johnson is on course to achieve during the second decade of his career. I will explore some of the records Johnson may break, and what I believe he has to accomplish if he wants to build a credible case of being the best driver in Nascar history.

    This post is assuming that he clinches his sixth championship .... Read the rest of this blog

  16. "NASCAR/West Series Standings: West Title Awarded (Really)" posted by The Long Shot on November 12, 2013   (9 comments)

    It all comes down to this. One week of predicting. Winner-take-all. And of course, in the world of NASCAR, anything can happen. I could go on and on about the excitement level entering this week, but I know you all want to hear the standings, so here they are.

    Kevin20fan almost assuredly has to be getting nervous right now. Not only did he .... Read the rest of this blog


  17. "the safety car" posted by Kubica Fan Ireland on November 11, 2013   (6 comments)

    I have come to the conclusion that unless Jimmie Johnson surpasses Dale Earnhardt and Richard Petty in titles, the remainder of his career should be viewed as a failure. The drivers in equipment that can truly challenge him are some of the most mentally fragile in Nascar's history. He has practically the entire field beaten before a wheel is turned. ....

  21. "Previewing NASCAR on TV in Phoenix" posted by NASCARgirl01 on November 7, 2013   (0 comments)

    Every week I like to go through the coming weekend's schedule to see when everything I want to watch is on TV. As usual, I had some interesting observations and I thought I would share them with you. We've only got two weekends left until the offseason, so I'm sure we all want to get in as much racing as we can!

    Today (Thursday) the Truck .... Read the rest of this blog

  23. "NASCAR Predictor Standings: 2 Weeks To Go" posted by The Long Shot on November 5, 2013   (5 comments)

    With only two weeks to go in the season, the points battles are as close as ever (well, besides the Nationwide one, I suppose). And here are the standings for the week.

    The Cup MVP goes to T-27 for being, shock-horror, the ONLY PERSON to predict Jimmie Johnson to win, leading the league with 22 points!

    Standings:

  24. "Predictions and Results" posted by Uptight Motorsports Nerd on November 1, 2013   (0 comments)

    Remember December 2011? That was the time I went crazy and predicted Sebastian Vettel to win the next two World Drivers'Championships. I'm not one to toot my own horn, but - beep beep.

    Speaking of prognostication, while sorting through some old magazines (I may be something of .... Read the rest of this blog
