Kurt Busch Resolves Arizona Traffic Incident: #2-Kurt Busch appeared in Aqua Fria Justice Court today and agreed to the terms proposed by the Maricopa County [Arizona] Attorney's Office and approved by the Court regarding a traffic incident that occurred on Nov. 11, 2005. "I am pleased to have this incident behind me," Busch said. "I have learned many lessons from the situation and one of them is that speeding should be saved for the race track. I am excited for the 2006 race season to begin and look forward to the racing activities at Daytona this week." Busch took responsibility for excessive speed, as well as citations for passing in a no passing zone and following another vehicle too closely. As part of the resolution, Busch will perform community service, which will be determined in the near future.(Penske Racing PR)(2-8-2006)

Let's see who can guess why he looks different this year!

"""""If the time comes when Dale Earnhardt, Jr. takes the black number three to the track, it won’t be for some publicity stunt or marketing ploy. Nor will it be before Dale, Jr. thinks the time is right. It will be done with great consideration and out of pure respect for a man who, though larger than life, was just a good old down home racer. I respect that. If the “3” never takes to the track again, I’ll respect that too. After all, I have enough remarkable memories of that car and the man who drove it to last me a lifetime.""""""

If anyone's around ESPN is showing media day interviews from Daytona. Smoke is up now. Jeff and Shrub were just on.

The show is called The Hot List.

Flash said........

They're asking him about his humbling year.
He says it's all media driven and he recognizes how competitive the sport is. He respects the competition. We're gonna have bad years and good years. Needs to be more prepared and more fired up. The media put criticism on himself and Dale Jr. He said he's lucky he missed the Chase the same year as Jr so he wasn't alone.

What's it like being on the inside looking in.

It wasn't fun, we just didn't have the right stuff. I don't want to just be in the Chase I want to go for the championship.

Busch will perform community service, which will be determined in the near future.

He's lucky Sheriff Arpaio doesn't make him wear pink underwear and live in a tent.

The Sam's club in Fayetteville ( Georgia) is trying to get a license to sell liquor.
 

As part of that promotion Wal-Mart is going to roll out a new brand of
wine. The world's largest retail chain is teaming up with E&J Gallo
Winery of California, to produce the spirits at an affordable price,
in the $2-$5 range.
 

Wine connoisseurs may not be inclined to throw a bottle of Wal-Mart
brand into their shopping carts, but "there is a market for cheap
wine", said Kathy Micken, director of marketing.
She continued:
 
"But the right name is important." Customer surveys were conducted to
determine the most attractive name for the Wal-Mart brand.
 
The top surveyed names in popularity are:
 
10. Chateau Traileur Parc
 
 9. White Trashfindel
 
 8. Big Red Gulp
 
 7. World Championship Riesling
 
 6. NASCARbernet
 
 5. Chef Boyardeaux
 
 4. Peanut Noir
 
 3. I Can't Believe It's Not Vinegar!
 
 2. Grape Expectations
 
  And the number 1 name for Wal-Mart Wine...
 
  1. Nasti Spumante
 

The beauty of Wal-Mart wine is that it can be served with either
white meat (Possum), or red meat (Squirrel).

 

 

 

 

 

Hey Tork, wanna split a bottle of #6 for the Shootout?
