    @BlueBirdMusic that is awesome and thanks for posting. I was not aware of it. I plan on building near Cookeville in a few years, so that venue will definitely be on the bucket list.

    Curious if you have heard of and been to https://www.thecaverns.com/? Also looks like a “must do” in the Chattanooga area.

    I had to read up on this a bit...I like it. Now, if Nascar would race a car like this on tracks like this all the time and even in the rain I'd likely become a fan. Going 'round and 'round in drafting packs is boring as hell.

    @bcwsrt I have not been to "The Caverns" but know about it. For several years my woman and I have been keeping a list of "One-day & Two-day Trips" from Marietta, and "The Caverns" would fit the criteria.

    Chattanooga is a nice place to visit. On an overnight two-day trip, we saw "Little Big Town" (Pain Killer Tour) in 2015 at Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Auditorium which was dedicated on November 11, 1922. Not as impressive and comfortable as Tennessee Theater in Knoxville.

    An expected surprise was Chris Stapleton and band was the opening act for the concert. My friend and I had never heard of Chris Stapleton but he was known by many of the concert attendees by the repeated applause. We remarked to each other how great the band was; but never noted the name of the singer. We confirmed it was Chris Stapleton a few months later.

    As a kid, I visited Lookout Mountain/Rock City (see seven states) and Ruby Falls which is deep inside Lookout Mountain to see the tallest and deepest underground cave waterfall open to the public in the United States. You descend 260 feet by glass-front (not when I was a kid) elevator to see ancient cave formations along the cavern trail to the thundering waterfall.

    Ruby Falls was accidentally discovered by Leo Lambert in 1928 deep within Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Leo named the waterfall and cave after his wife, Ruby.
    Average Length of Cave Walk: 1 hour - 1 hour 20 minutes, depending on date and time of visit with 1-mile round trip walk. Social distancing is not possible during the cave tour or in the elevator. (FUNNY!)

    Here is another place that is wonderful: Booth Western Art Museum
    https://boothmuseum.org/upcoming-exhibitions/
    It is in Cartersville GA. It has musical related exhibits from time to time. As an example, the one in the picture below is this weekend. The Kenny Rogers photography exhibition was here last year.

    I've always had a problem with nascar not racing in the rain. Just how much of a problem could it be to have rain tires along as well? If you know there's a chance for rain BRING'em! I've heard all kinds of excuses over the years. From the open Windows to it's too dangerous a multitude of excuses. Well hey the Indy car the F1 they don't have no windows and their face is getting pelted by the rain at least those guys have a windshield on that NASCAR.

    Going around in circles on a slick, high-banked track does not work well in rain. On many tracks, the cars need speed and hot tires to stick in the turns. Without that, the cars would be all over the place and uncontrollable.

    I'm well aware of that. There are also tracks where they may never go over 100mph ( Bristol is like high 80's). You can still race around the bottom at a slower pace in the rain. It's called driver performance and skill.

    I forget where they were at a few weeks ago but there were drivers saying the traction was better in the rain with the rain tires than on a dry track with slicks when they were going back-and-forth during qualifying.

    I’m sure it’s track-dependent, but they are running rain tires and wipers at more tracks now than ever in the past, not just road courses. I like it, because it definitely adds more driver skill to the equation.

    Diatone was/is the high-end audio brand (in Japan and most of the world, though not AFAIK in the US) for Mitsubishi.
    Many of the Diatone loudspeakers have been outstanding (although not all).

    The little Diatone P-610 fullrange driver family (which used leather surrounds) was/is nigh on legendary -- and not without reason. :)
