Blues Musician Jimmie Vaughan to perform National Anthem at MIS: Famous contemporary blues musician and classic car enthusiast Jimmie Vaughan steps to the stage as he mixes his two passions – music and cars – during the 3M Performance 400 Nextel Cup Series race weekend at Michigan International Speedway. Vaughan will perform during the 3M Car Care Auto Fair on Saturday, August 18 and perform the National Anthem prior to the 3M Performance 400 on Sunday, August 19. Vaughan’s distinct style as a musician, songwriter and bandleader has made him a living legend. In addition to his four solo albums since 1990, Vaughan has recorded and performed with Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Carlos Santana, B.B. King, Willie Nelson, Don Henley [his late great brother Stevie Ray Vaughan] and countless others. Vaughan is currently on tour opening for Bob Dylan. His upcoming album with Omar Kent Dykes, titled “On The Jimmy Reed Highway,” will be available in stores August 21.

If you'd like ON or Off the Nascar at FR racing threads&stuff Ping List, let me know via Private Reply. Thanks!

This is not a High Volume Ping List and is intended primarily to alert folks of the posting of the weekly Nascar qualifying and race threads.

Occasional sports or military or prayers Pings using the list may also be sent as situation or subject dictates.

Profanities, flame wars and belligerence in observing common sense rules and family decency standards on the thread may result in serious sanctions so be nice. :-)

That’s what I meant. I’d not be surprised if AT&T just walked away.

To: Roccus

I’m confused. I imagine they’ll take the fight as far as they can, having the funds and all. The 11the circus said they didn’t have standing, so AT&T will ask for an en banc hearing of the whole court, and failing that, appeal to the USSC. Best o ruck on that.

From the article I linked, I don’t understand just what Nascar has given them 5 days to do... should make for an interesting week. Here’s what I’d do if I were an AT&T marketing type... I’d redesign the Cingular splat logo to have the blue world swirls with a tiny ‘cingular’ name on the bottom, barely visible. There, cingular it is.

Sadly, Richard Childress and Burton seem to be bystanders in this corporate grab-a$$ game.

Did I mention I’m confused?
