    I'm going to say this in advance since the last few races went into hell in a handbasket: if you can't act civilized in this weekend's, or any other race thread for that matter, DO NOT POST!

    The mods and admins will not tolerate any further thread derailments like what we've seen in recent weeks, and it's the same damn people. If said individuals wanna go to a keyboard war, take it to a PM instead of clogging these threads. Otherwise, we will be handing out warnings like the plague if things get ugly.

    You have been warned. Now try to enjoy the races and behave like adults.

    This weekend is when I get to finally celebrate again, or stop paying attention until the final 10 laps again. Most likely gonna be the latter.

    My favorite track. I really hope the segment racing makes the action on track better than some of the races here where everyone goes tingle files mid race or certain 'teams' decide to ride in the back trying to avoid actual racing in the pack.

    Luckily for me this is the only day I need to go in for finals week before I'm done for summer. I know I'll be watching the Arca race at least. lol

    Way the weather forecast is looking looks like I'll be missing part of Sundays race to get some yard work done as we're expecting another 3 days of rain showers Thursday - Saturday.

    Last year finals for South Alabama was the weekend before Talladega. I left Talladega at like 7 or 8 Sunday night headed back to Mobile, and I had an 8 AM final exam the next morning.

    "Spark Energy" reminds me of when Touchstone Energy sponsored this race during the late 90s. Kind of a throwback vibe there.

    Bummer I don't have anyone to pull for this weekend. Been a while since I've been able to skip Talladega weekend.

    Talladega is always one of the best races of the year.

    I might not be around to watch 'Dega, but the spring race has been good the past few years. Looking forward to it. I think it'll probably be like Daytona, where it's clean for the first stage, and then chaos from there on out.
