For the first time in history we’ll have Clash broadcasted in Poland.

And I think for second time in a row we’ll have three guys in the booth for 500.

Coming to you live from Minneapolis. Woke up to -27, it has warmed up to a brisk -25. These temperatures do not include wind chill or “feels like” temp added.

I work in transportation, diesel trucks won’t start because diesel gels up at like 10 degrees. We added a 70/30 blend to cover down to -15, and yesterday had a shipment sent by corporate that is a 60/40 blend that covers down to -35. Problem is that the residual diesel in tanks is all gelled. It’s a nightmare

I feel your pain, stay safe. My work takes me outside most of the time. Coldest I've ever experienced in KY is -22 degrees. Its 2 degrees now

Ditto, I’m outside a good portion of the day too. It was about -10 earlier. Can’t wait to bundle up underneath a blanket!!

level 2

I’m just ready for summer to start down here in Florida next week.

Exciting day for myself yesterday. From what I can remember in almost my 30 years of living, I'd never really won a contest before. Well yesterday I won 2 tickets and pit passes to the NHRA event at Pomona from calling into to kroq (radio station in LA area) and I couldn't be more excited because its going to be my first time seeing drag racing in person. Any tips welcomed! And if anyone else is going maybe lets me up or something! Woooo!!!

level 1

The teaser that kaulig racing put out earlier makes me very excited for their 2nd team reveal

level 1

My body is slowly catching up from doing the 24 Hour Club this year.

level 2

My first year doing it and amazingly, I was back to normal Tuesday morning. Had a great time with it, so will definitely do it again. That being said, I'm glad it's only once a year lol.

level 2

What’s that? If I had to guess I’d say you watched the Rolex 24 nonstop?

level 3

2nd year in a row, yes

level 2

I think i finally recovered yesterday. That was the longest day of my life. Just wanna thank Call of Duty, champagne, and coffee for keeping me going.

Ha. I knew in the back of my mind I was done as soon as the first red flag came out, but it's funny how you can rationalize when you're tired. "I'll just lay down while we wait this out..."

level 3

That hour-long caution for the Corvette was rough.

level 2

I always crash with about 5 hours to go, and wake up in yime for the final 30 minutes.

level 1

Had to work overtime last week, I barely made the start of the Rolex 24 thanks to it. But thankfully I made it and had a great time shitposting throughout the race.

Other than that I got a switch the other week and I've been playing the hell out of breath of the wild. God damn that game is so good.

level 1

Tomorrow is one week since I broke my ankle and leg. Been watching some good racing on YouTube. Caught Talladega 83 and 85 today. Bristol 88 when Bill won also. Also a few episodes of a show where All-star winners go back and reviews their wins and tell stories about it.

Talladega 85 fall race we nearly lost Dale when a driveshaft went through the windshield. Could have easily killed him. Cut his face up but they fixed it and got him back out.

Talladega spring 83, parsons landed on Ricky Rudd and they kept trying to fix it. The roof was mashed in bad!

Bristol 88 is a great race also. Spring race.

One thing I noticed that made these exciting. It's not the racing, they got strung out at times and all that. The drivers were badasses back then. The presentation was better, it built a story. And unpopular to say, it was cool seeing them take a victory lap and not spend 3 minutes doing a burnout and tearing the car up. Also driver fatigue made things more interesting. The cars and drivers got tired, they were really working for it. Now everyone is supplemented up and barely sweating after some races.

Anyway, fun races to watch but I am also looking forward to Speedweeks!

My girlfriend got accepted to the Master of Nursing program at Columbia, So I guess I’m moving to New York City in June.

Anyone know of any jobs for a 28 year old male with 2 degrees in Music Education (that doesn’t require a New York teaching certificate)?

level 2

Rich parents in the Village maybe?
