Vote in the right side bar!

Cars on the track, woo hoo! Feel free to post every now and then at the test page… I think I’m going to give it several more days to make sure it’s reliable. Note that ChevyTech won’t be counting polls on that page, so you’ll have to keep track of them yourselves over there. Do polls made under testing even count? ;)

Have a great day everybody!



Thanks For The Help!

February 26th, 2009

Thanks again for the help testing out the new server today. I heard we got lot’s of new visitors! :-O

Anyway, if some of you can post between 10AM and 3 PM PST, that’d be great! You don’t have to post a lot, just a test post every once in a while. Most of you who have posted there already should be able to post without having your post held for moderation. If your post is held for moderation, don’t sweat it, I’ll approve it as soon as I get in and you won’t have to wait for moderation after that.

Beware that it’s still possible for a troll or two to get on the test page, not as easy as before, but still possible… fumigation there isn’t complete… so if you have a weak stomach for postings by pathetic trolls, stay on the main site…. it’s troll free and has moderators there to take care of any problems. I apologize if anyone was upset by them… I’ve been desensitized to anything they say long ago… when I look at their postings, all I see is someone putting in a huge effort to make themselves look like a fool, so it never bothers me much. I understand that they bother some more than others, but again, that’s why that’s just a test page and not our main page! Stay on the main site if you don’t want to chance having to deal with that.

Have a great day!



New Server Looking Good!

February 25th, 2009

The new server test is going well… you guys gave it a great run today! Thanks! I was hoping I could just get a few over there to give it a test at different times, but you guys gave it a run for the money! I’m sure a lot of you went there because of my goof with the Fantasy Results page making Internet Explorer not work on that page. I apologize for any inconvenience I caused any of you, I shoulda known to check things like that! Read more…

Matt Kenseth Wins at Fontana! Two NASCAR Cup Wins in a row!

February 23rd, 2009

Great win for Matt Kenseth in the Auto Club 500 at Fontana, CA! Two in a row, what a fantastic way to start the season! Some of us had  a rough week: Kevin Harvick and Dale Earnhardt Jr. fans, for instance! But there’s next week! All  in all it was a pretty good race for Fontana. It did rain a little, but it didn’t drench the track and NASCAR got the race in!

Have fun celebrating this week Kenseth fans! Those who didn’t fair well, better luck at Vegas!

Which Manufacturer Is Going To Win At Fontana?

February 19th, 2009

OK, I guess we’re pretty evenly split on whether NASCAR should have called the race as they did Sunday or finished it on Monday. 53% say they should have finished it on Monday, 47% say the call was good!

If anybody has a driver they want us to do a poll on, or any other suggestion for a poll, let me know. Today’s poll is which manufacturer you think will win at Fontana. Make your vote in the right sidebar!

Have a great day!
