This will be the last "Budweiser" shootout.

The Budweiser Shootout is a 70 lap, 175 mile all star NASCAR Nextel Cup (formerly Winston Cup) non points race held at Daytona, one week before the Daytona 500. The event is held on Saturday night, under the lights. Also new this year is the race will be broken up into 2 segments. The first segment is 20 laps. The teams get a 10 minute break and line up in the same order as at the end of the segment. The second segment must end with a green, white, checkered finish. All caution laps count toward the total of each segment. All restarts are double file (like the start of the race). Drivers qualify, not teams. If a driver leaves a team, the new team will be in the race. To qualify:

Each driver/team must participate in Budweiser's promotion of pole qualifying (a decal). The driver/team must qualify on the pole (or be the fastest program qualifier if the pole winner does not participate) of a Nextel Cup points event in the previous year. Past winners from previous "Budweiser Shootout", "Bud Shootout", and "Busch Clash" events are eligible. Drivers must finish in the top 50 in points the previous year. The field starting positions are chosen by random draw.

Fire em up and let's go racing boys!!!

Toyotas continue to show strength
Monday, Feb 4, 2008
http://sports.yahoo.com/nascar/rumors;_ylt=AjvHw3O9XY5gM7fnfPPYvR3ov7YF

If you’re looking for a falloff in the performance of the Toyotas during preseason testing, you won’t find it at California. Denny Hamlin posted the top two speeds at the two-mile track Thursday morning in two different Joe Gibbs racing Camrys — the Nos. 11B (182.523 mph) and 11A (181.800 mph).

Ryan Newman was third at 181.511 mph in the No. 12A Penske Racing Dodge. DEI’s Mark Martin had the fastest Chevrolet (fifth overall at 181.456 mph). Defending Cup champion Jimmie Johnson struggled early, posting the 38th-best speed (177.940 mph) in the No. 48A Hendrick Chevy.

We had clear blue skies today so that is good for the country...

The nice weather will end tomorrow so that is bad for the country...

We normally have a two week period of False Spring in Feb so that is good for country...

It won’t happen this year so that is bad for the country...

I consider myself, and I think those who partake of the Nascar threads would agree, that I am Jr’s number 1 fan!!

I also LOVE the fact that he is part of the Hendrick team now. First and foemost for his personal happiness. He needed a team owner like Rick who will be a mentor, a cheerleader and a father figure for him. Someone who WILL be there for him!

Secondly, for his competitive nature and drive to win, this move will give him the equipment to do that. With the backing of the total package from a team who does everything in it’s power to give their drivers a car that is capable of winning races and if it’s not they will figure it out and not make the same mistake again. This is completely the opposite of DEI’s way of approaching racing.

Well, I’ve been a Gordon fan since Ernie Irvan retired from NASCAR(before Gordon’s first win).

I’m really excited to have Junior join our team, and wish him all the success possible. I believe he will be successful, and will help the Hendricks team blossom into the race team they need to be!

Welcome Aboard!

Torn, torn I tell ya. I want Junior to go out and win Daytona, but I am a Gordon fan so that would mean that he wouldn’t win. But I am not sure how much of the “Junior has to win one soon” talk I can take from the commentators!

Johnson and Earnhardt already seem to have a natural bond on the track. In overlaying telemetry from test sessions, Hendrick engineers found nearly identical brake and throttle data, suggesting the pair's driving styles are similar.

The early signs of camaraderie have been a relief to Hendrick, who said he’s far less concerned about how egos and dissension might scuttle performance than with how outsiders (Earnhardt’s massive fan base, for example) perceive the team’s working dynamic.

A really long good article about the Hendrick organization, the teams, the drivers etc.

Yep, yep, and yep. Most definitely. The thread looks great, WCG! I can't wait...off season is sooooo long. My hubby is in the hospital right now and if he's not out soon I'm going to kidnap him. We can't watch the shootout on a 6" screen. :-)
