I picture Junior owning DEI or at Childress. I don’t see him anywhere else. Too bad he can’t take the 8 number with him. :(

As you already know, I am but a peripheral fan.

What is/are the major difference/s between the Busch Series cars and Nextel Cup cars?

http://www.jayski.com/pages/diff.htm

Currently, the three top series — Nextel Cup, Busch and Craftsman Truck — run a 12:1 compression ratio. That rule went into effect during the 2001 season. They all use cast-iron, 5.7-liter V8 engines with aluminum cylinder heads, and each engine has a maximum displacement of 358 cubic inches.

But the main difference among the Cup, Busch and truck engines is the size of the carburetors — 830 cubic feet per minute (cfm) in Cup and 390 cfm for Busch and trucks — which allows a richer air-fuel mixture in Nextel Cup. According to the NASCAR media guide, the torque is 550 feet per pound at 7,500 RPM for Cup, 535 feet per pound at 6,500 RPM for Busch and 535 feet per pound at 6,500 RPM for trucks. That gives the engines the ability to produce horsepower in the range of 850 at 9,000 RPM for Cup, 750 at 8,400 RPM for Busch and 750 at 8,400 RPM for trucks.

Howdy EGS!

Thanks for stop’n by. An easy analogy would be Jr. Varsity Vs. Varsity. Older drivers with more Horsepower rides that for some still like ta mix it up with the young’ns fer various reasons. Big differences in prize money also.

In addition to the info NormsRevenge provided, I believe the wheelbase is shorter.

Thanks for the pic, he almost had it.

I’m liking his temporary CC!! :)

DEI is probably gonna give him the good stuff now so they will look like the good guys.

We have a challenge up now to all the prospective new bosses. We, the Earnhardt Nation want to interview all of them. LOL

I just don’t see Biffle in that car.

I don’t know what goes on behind the scenes at Roush but the ESM does not call the shots there I’m pretty sure.

Maybe Jr’s leaving has awakened TEI, only time will tell.

If TJ leaves because he’s been given only two weeks to tell them his intentions, his Dad may go too eliminating two more relatives. Pretty soon the E will have to come off the building. I have a suspicion that’s why they hired Kerry and Jeffery.

Biffle/Tryson could reunite at DEI? UPDATE: Pat Tryson doesn’t know where he’ll work next, but he hasn’t ruled out a reunion with driver #16-Greg Biffle. Fired as Biffle’s crew chief at Roush Fenway Racing this week, Tryson said on Thursday at Lowe’s Motor Speedway that he’s been contacted about a job from officials at Dale Earnhardt Inc. He also acknowledged that Biffle has had ongoing conversations with DEI even before Dale Earnhardt Jr. announced he was leaving the organization that his father built. “I know if they want to keep Greg Biffle, [Roush] better get some stuff together,’’ Tryson said during practice for Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600. “I don’t think Greg’s shopping himself. I also don’t believe he’s going to rush to sign.’’ Biffle’s contract with Roush Fenway runs through 2008 and he’s in the middle of negotiations on an extension. While he’s said that an extension is his first choice, he wouldn’t be the first person to get out of a Roush contract a year early. Kurt Busch left a year after the 2005 season to join Penske Racing.(ESPN.com)(5-24-2007)
UPDATE: Greg Biffle’s contract negotiation with Roush Fenway Racing is currently “in limbo,” the driver said Thursday at Lowe’s Motor Speedway. “Right now we’ve made a counter offer,” Biffle said. “A lot of it regarded appearances and the way the contract was written — and obviously money was one of the factors. So we’re waiting to see where they sit with everything.” Biffle explained the addition of Fenway Sports Group to the equation has diluted negotiations a bit.(ESPN.com)(5-25-2007)
