As always, this thread is dedicated to our men and women in the military. We send our prayers out to them for their safety and thanks to all who serve to protect our freedom. And to those recuperating from their injuries in hospitals across this country we send our heartfelt prayers out to all of you for your recovery.



I would also like to dedicate this thread to the students and families at VT this week who have suffered the ultimate betrayal of another human being in his despicable murderous act that was committed at a school which should be a safe haven for young people to attend and learn.

God bless all of them!

You sure it’s a COT race?? I cant find the answer anywhere but was pretty sure that our 2nd race in November was the COT race and this wasn’t... Also just a heads up there is a Truck race this weekend, just not in Phoenix, Its at Kansas.

That says a lot about Dale!

JR Motorsports

PHOENIX, Ariz. — Shane Huffman will return to Phoenix International Raceway to drive the No. 88 Navy Accelerate Your Life Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS in the NASCAR Busch Series Bashas’ Supermarkets 200 on Friday, April 20.

Prior to racing at Phoenix, Huffman and JR Motorsports team owner Dale Earnhardt Jr. will spend Wednesday aboard the USS Cleveland LPD-7. The vessel is the fourth amphibious transport dock in the Austin class. Commissioned in April 1967, the USS Cleveland is home ported out of San Diego, Calif., as a member of the Pacific Fleet Amphibious Forces. At 569 feet in length, the USS Cleveland has divided her time between operations in the Eastern Pacific and extended deployments to the Western Pacific. It is normally assigned as part of an Expeditionary Strike Group and has performed a wide variety of missions.

Dale Earnhardt, Jr.’s Top Ten Thoughts While Driving the No. 5 at Texas
Kim DeHaven and Amy Henderson · Wednesday April 18, 2007

10. Damn! A wrecked Hendrick car still drives better than any car I raced in the beginning of 2005.

9. I wonder if I can borrow the setup book, too…

8. Not fair! Kyle’s car has a tiki bar in the back! That sure explains all those accidents his rookie year…

7. Why does Kyle have hedge clippers, a lawn edger, and a weed eater under the seat? Oh, yeah; he must need something to keep all that facial hair in check.

6. It’s cool seeing your name twice in a full field run down…unless you are 36th and 37th.

5. Team Communications can be highly entertaining: “Oh, Je-eeeeefff! Hi Jeff! I came to the dark side, Jeff! Am I annoying you yet, Jeff?! Jeff, can I have your autograph? Name the baby Dale, Jeff! Jeff, you’re my hero…”

4. Damn…Just because he has Cheez-Its ON the car doesn’t mean he has Cheez-Its IN the car.

3. Ha! I knew I could make my fans cheer for Hendrick!

2. I sure hope Teresa is watching…

1. Is this seat WET? The little ^%##&*$$#, no wonder he didn’t wanna get back in!

Listening to the driver introductions while on the way to our seats we heard Flash's name announced which was followed by big-time Boos.

So they give Jr a tour of the bridge of the carrier....Jr walks right up to the helmsman and says, "hey sailor, if you need to take a break I can drive this thing, can't be any worse than that HMS pos I drove the other day...."

Sorry........

I would have loved to been a fly on the wall for the Monday morning meeting at HMS.

I was really surprised at all the naysayer articles about why Jr should NOT have done that. What a load.

If someone were to ask Dale Jr, "How bad have you got it?"....what do you think he would say?

"Well, I'm having my go-cart track resurfaced, does that count?"

BTW, had to take my vehicle back to the dealer today - again. They said it was fixed. Same issue. What crap.

I'll give the service rep credit, when I called him this morning and said, "Who fixed this thing? Stevie Ray Wonder?" He laughed. I said, "Don't laugh, when I bring the vehicle back I might forget about the right turn into the service area and just continue driving right on into the show room area!"

Without hesitation he said, "no problem, I'll let the boss know we got a hot one coming in and we need more vehicles in front of the show room windows!"

That made me giggle.

To heck with the naysayers, his fans were 100% proud that he did that for a friend.

When asked how did it run? “Like a wrecked car” LOL

I would be almost willing to bet Shrub took off in a huff like he’s done before with his no comments to reporters etc.

The reporters don’t matter but his team did. Jr got him 3 points. lol

I hope you get the car back FIXED!! :)

Per ESPN Now.

Must have scooped Jayski on the MW CC news, he has nothing yet.

No deal with NE Patriots/Kraft for Yates.

They are looking for and NEED funding.

Biffle may explore his options before signing contract extension with Roush for beyond 2008. That team has had a lot of inquiries for sponsorship to replace Ameriquest who bailed out.

Wow.

You know something has / had to change.

Did they find the culprit?

I've been keeping an eye open for news about DJ and Matt Borland - meshing, Y/N?, etc., not much to be found.

Nothing but questions.

Ya do know that Dale Sr. and Flash were actually good friends, like mentor-mentee and had several business interests together...?

WHAT on earth will #8 fans do IF IF IF Jr. goes to HENDRICK? because DEI and Evil Stepmom won’t let him have the company?

Thanks for the compliment on the thread, it took me hours to do that yesterday.

Now as for this.........

Re: Jr to Hendrick -"You are most likely very correct in that...but, you know $$$$ makes people do strange things!"

That would be most people but not Jr Earnhardt. I just don't see him being number car # 3 behind JG AND JJ. Casey Mears is finding out why Vickers found greener pastures. Large teams cannot have every car a top car, even Rousch.

Now as for Childress, that's different because he would have his OWN identity there setting him aside from Happy and Nawthurn. I agree with NYT.

My tagline is looming........he will be able to talk to other teams after that date. I am willing to bet he could go anywhere he wants. As I've said before, Budweiser will go, most of the DEI crew will go. The only thing is the #8 will never be released by TE and THAT is a BIG problem for him.

If she won't budge on the 51%, he could take a one year extension with the understanding he gets the #8 after that if she still won't agree to the terms.

Per Jayski:

The Dale [Earnhardt] Jr. / DEI contract negotiations continue and the influence of ace negotiator Max Siegel may be bearing success. One contact told me [MaxChevy's Glen Grissom] on the down-low that the 51% (or majority ownership) that Dale Jr. requires to stay with DEI has essentially been negotiated – agreed to by Teresa Earnhardt. But that she, in turn, is requesting that an independent, impartial review board be set up within DEI that would take into consideration and review any major operational changes that Dale Jr. would want to take place – acting like a board of directors it seems to me [MaxChevy's Glen Grissom], with Dale Jr. basically reporting to it. So far, this has been balked at – but stranger management structures have survived in the business world. All parties say they want to have the contract resolved by May, so with April half-over, it’s crunch time.(MaxChevy.com)(4-19-2007)

NO ON THE REVIEW BOARD!!

Dale Jr’s Blog

Hangin’ Out on the Steamin’ Cleve

Published by DaleJr April 19th, 2007

What’s up everyone. Dale Jr. here, coming to you from the motorcoach lot of Phoenix International Raceway. It’s been a busy couple of weeks, so busy that I haven’t had much time to blog. My buddy Matt Good was kind enough to post a guest blog last week, and I appreciated it! He was with us during a weird Texas weekend, which included having to bunker down in the TMS Infield Care Center with a bunch of other drivers and families while tornados dropped and storms passed. We were fortunate that nothing happened at the speedway, but after seeing the damage caused by the storms in other areas of Fort Worth and Dallas, I’m glad we didn’t take any chances. We were lucky.

So here we are in Phoenix after a short time at home. We shot a new commercial for Wrangler all day Tuesday at my old Busch shop. That was actually a lot of fun, because the director and the cast of actors were really cool. Then I woke up at 5 a.m. Wednesday morning and boarded a plane for San Diego, where Shane and I visited a Navy base and toured the USS Cleveland, the oldest amphibious assault ship in the Navy’s Pacific Fleet. (One of the sailors called it “The Steamin’ Cleve”… I thought that was funny!) The early wake-up call was well worth it. I can’t even begin to describe how impressive it is to be on a big ship like that and see the hundreds of sailors at work. It makes me appreciate our partnership with the U.S. Navy, because the people on board these ships — most of them just out of high school — are true heroes. We were brought to the Cleveland on MH-60S helicopters assigned by the Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron 85 “High Rollers”. That was a crazy ride! I’m going to post some pictures on my IP, so check ‘em out!

We’ve got practice soon, so I’m going to get rolling. Have a great weekend, and thanks for being a part of Infield Parking. I’m noticing more and more members every time I log in, and that’s great! Continue to spread the word so we can make this the coolest online community on the web!
Junior
