We’ll have a house full of crazy race fans. This is just something to watch ‘til our dirt track (http//www.victoryspeedway.net) thaws out.

I’m rooting for David Reutimann ‘cause his Dad is a LEGEND at our local track.

I’m also rooting for Tony Stewart, Dale Jarrett, Michael Waltrip, Kenny Schrader, Jr., and...

I can't believe the Wood Brothers don't have a car in the field.

It's unfortunate that Ford is really letting their program go down the drain. Hell, there are more Toyotas than Fords in the field (although I guess there maybe more Toyotas mde in the US than Fords, so maybe that's somehow ironic), and the Ford teams are having problems qualifying or finding sponsors.

Is Ford dropping out or something?

As a Tony Stewart fan, I was worried when the Gibbs team switched to Toyotas. After this past week however, my worries are no more. They are hot!

I like all those guys, really glad to see Krazy Kenny - the Herminator - get in, too.

I don't understand what you mean by, "...waiting for the track to thaw out...."

Yuck you had to go and spoil my thread...

Hey, he's a good driver...Tony Stewart better look out as I see he's in the back of the back and out for some #20 paint swapin'. I like NAS(ty)CAR driving dirt-dealers and, if it weren't Kurt it would have to be Joo-Wann Pab-low Man-toyota (I know he's from Spain but he's real dirty and represents the illegal alien crowd everyone accuses me here of supporting because I back McCain).
