Sad that Kevin Swindell won't be able to qualify for the NW race due to the rainout, especially when considering the car's sponsor.

Who is Swindell's sponsor--

Same goes for Brendan Gaughan!

=44.
Congratulations to the bettors who picked the OVER.
Actually, I think it was just Watkins and I. Tomorrow we settle. :lol:


You have a starting line-up, but imo not a qualifying result. The avatar exchange is denied.

Nah this wasn't for the avatar exchange. Part 1 happens at today's race. (gm v. Watkins)

Why has the NNS starting line-up been determined already? Quali was originally slated for 1pm today. Did they change it?

:lol:

No-one changed anything. The avatar bets are for finishing positions in the races. The qualifying bet was for a :kiss: from OLB.

Edit: ok I just read on Jayski about NNS qualifying. Seems weird though to cancel the Quali to replace it with a practice session. Why couldn't they at least give Gaughan, Swindell etal, a chance and have the results of the upcoming practice session determine the grid?

OK OK...
The house has looked at this and the adjudication is as follows.


The following Over/Unders are withdrawn as no competition took place.
OLB :My first prop bet is going to be, how many laps will hometown boy Brendan Gaughan complete in the Sam's Town race?
OLB :Take Danica Patrick and Ricky Stenhouse's qualifying positions (disregard going to the back due to engine changes/backup cars). Now add them together.Will the sum be OVER or UNDER 40?


Wagers

DILLA: Busch will win the NW race easily with Bayne as the highest regular.
Jr will win the Sprint Cup race.

GM914: I'm going to pick Sam Hornish Jr as the Nationwide winner.

AS OF YET...NO CONSEQUENCES WERE AGREED TO ON THE OUTCOME OF THESE SELECTIONS.
------
As proposed by GM914 and agreed to by Watkins and SR388.

Watkins: if Brad Keselowski finishes in a better position than Kyle Busch in the NNS Sam's Town 300, you will wear the Manet Keselowski as your avatar until the end of the Bristol weekend. (1 week)

SR388: if Brad Keselowski finishes in a better position than Jeff Gordon in the Kobalt Tools 400, you will wear the Evel Keneval Keselowski avatar until the end of the Bristol weekend. (1 week)

Whoever I, GM914, lose to I will happily wear the KyBu/Gordon avatar of their choice for the same duration.
If I lose to both, one week will be KyBu and the next week Jeff Gordon.

RED 17: If Montoya finishes in the top 5, or one of the Busch brothers wins... I will wear an avatar of Dany Bahar until Bristol!
If Danica wins I will use an avatar chosen by Jp.

THESE ARE NOW LOCKED IN AND,OUTSIDE OF RAISING THE STAKES, CANNOT BE ALTERED.
ANY OTHER BETS,WHICH MAY NOT DIRECTLY CONTRADICT THE EXISTING BETS, NEED TO BE MADE BEFORE THE START OF THE NNS RACE TODAY .
IN ADDITION: the overall biggest winner or greatest loser starts next weeks Bristol thread.
The House thanks you and wishes you all the best of luck.

Jp

This is another one of those bets where both can happen so are we sure it's not two weeks?

Also, I'll work hard to come up with some additional bets.

Sorry for the short notice. New bets (trying to keep it simple, all are binary):

Will Pastrana be involved in an incident of contact with another car that is covered on the TV broadcast that causes damage (even just cosmetic and can stay on the lead lap)?

Piquet's finishing position O/U: 13th.

Who will finish higher, Ty or Austin Dillon?

OK guys I have found a discrepancy between jayski's posting of the official NASCAR Statistics PDF and the starting lineup on NASCAR.com.

PDF: http://www.jayski.co...s2013lineup.pdf

NASCAR.com: http://www.nascar.co...s-town-300.html

The main difference being, that Brendan Gaughan is in the race per NASCAR.com and not per jayski.

If Gaughan starts today, that O/U is still on. (Does he finish on the lead lap or more than 1 lap down?)

So if you win you win, if you lose nothing changes. That's not normally how betting works.

Piquet won here last year in the Truck Series, although his spin while racing Kurt forced the team's hand and put them on a different fuel/tire strategy, so a bit of luck was involved. But he showed awesome pace and good fuel conservation.
Turner also won the NNS race here in 2011 in the #32 with Mark Martin at the helm.

Hope Nelsinho can pull off a Top 5 finish today, so my bet is on the UNDER.

Piquet did win here last year, but you got how he won switched up with his Michigan victory. He won Vegas by divebombing Crafton on the last lap.

Oh yeah. Got mixed up thinking Vegas was before Michigan on the calendar.

It was a kickass move. THAT win he earned. :up:

No, not here.

Over.

Ty as his brother is busy making dumb moves.

Also, it's a minor pet peeve of mine, but the O/U number should not be a valid outcome so for finishing position or caution O/U's it should be 12.5 or 13.5. Mini rant complete, I now start my inverse rain dance.

Keselowski on pole due to owner points standings.

Does that means BK also on 2014 Daytona Sprint Unlimited ?


They just said in the practice telecast it does not count towards the Daytona Sprint Unlimited.

What a pitty.
BG did a very good race in Trucks last year.
After all it's his home race and the sponsor is local too.

Rain in the desert :rolleyes:

Ty vs Larson :clap:

Alrighty then. If any of the Busch brothel... er... brothers wins in Nationwide (in this case Kyle) and Danica wins in Cup it will work like this: Bahar until Bristol, Jp's choice until May 19. Any single victory will last only until Spring Bristol Wrecktub.

IF Long OR Montoya finishes in the top 10 I defy Jp to change his signature to "I suck" until Bristol.

Edit: watching the delayed V8 in Adelaide on Motors TV, I guess there is no better warmup.

Crafty is in the house.

and the 54 is on the move.

The 54 is my preferred onboard on Racebuddy. he says he's good in clear air but if any car is near him, either ahead, behind, or to the side, he's loose.

BTW did JGR buy the 54, so Kyle actually races for JGR while still owning his own team and running other cars, e.g. Parker Kligerman?
