NASCAR Chase Grid and How It Works

This is the NASCAR Chase Grid. I like it a lot. It reminds me of the other pro sports play-off layouts.

The idea is simple and much more interesting. CLICK ON THE IMAGE for the complete explanation as to how it works.

NASCAR: Tony Stewart Hits,Kills Driver on Track-Criminal Charges Not Ruled Out

The crash raised several questions: Will Ward's death cause drivers to think twice about on-track confrontations? Did Stewart try and send his own message by buzzing Ward, the young driver, only to have his risky move turn fatal? Or did Ward simply take his life into his own hands by stepping into traffic in a black fire suit on a dark track?
After Ward was killed, Stewart, considered one of the most proficient drivers in racing, dropped out of Sunday's NASCAR race at Watkins Glen, hours after Saturday's crash. And the sport was left reeling from a tragedy that could have ripple effects from the biggest stock car series down to weeknight dirt track racing.

Now You Can Panic:Federal Dept Increase Since Obama Took Office

 The new debt increase from the Obama administration is more than all of the presidents from George Washington to Bill Clinton COMBINED.
All of this and not a damn thing better for it!
Remember when President Barack Obama boasted of lowering the debt by half? Or when, in 2008, Obama accused President George W. Bush of being “unpatriotic” for taking out a “credit card in the name of Bank of China.”
Well, it appears that Obama has reached his self-defined “unpatriotic” zone himself.


- The total federal debt of the U.S. government has now increased more than $7 trillion during Barack Obama’s tenure as president.
- When President Obama took office on Jan. 20, 2009, the total federal debt was $10,626,877,048,913.08. Now it has risen to $17,618,599,653,160.19 — up $6,991,722,604,247.11 from Obama’s first day on the job.
- The $7,060,259,674,497.51 in new debt alone from Obama’s presidency is $61,341.82 per household.

NASA: We Are Not Alone In Universe, Scientists Say

Scientists believe there are potentially many more Earth-like planets in the universe -- and some of them could be home to alien life.
"Astronomers think it is very likely that every single star in our Milky Way galaxy has at least one planet," Sara Seager, professor of planetary science and physics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said during the talk. "Sometime in the near future, people will be able to point to a star and say, 'that star has a planet like Earth.'"
