Dare I say it? Kurt Busch to RPM? Hmm...that might light a fire under the 43.
Kurt had a good relationship with the Ford guys when he was at Roush. They might like to have him back....he is not cheap though. However, you have PC provisionals should you need it. That can be worth a lot at Daytona alone.

I am hoping the Wood Brothers can put something together to get him......may be too close to Jack to work out though.

Look at Dover versus Sears Point:

I love watching Sears Point on TV. Between the tire walls coming down the hill and other cars taking the line, not many cars have fenders at the checker. It's a pretty small place for those big cars. I watched my Nephew test his "west" car one day, which is basically a Busch car. I can't imagine a full grid. There's just no room!

But yeah, I always wanted NHMS to build a real road course and have one of their Cup races there. I'd even go...maybe.

Hmmm, sounds like AJ jumped because he got wind that RPM was talking to Busch. Not to mention the sponsor bailing out.

I think AJ has potential and so does Penske, they'll make a run at the championship in '12.


I think I'm gonna go to see the race at Sears Point next year, it's close by and I've never gone. I think a buddy can even get me tickets for free!! My FIL went a few years back and rode the shuttle bus from Sacramento, said it made it totally painless for traffic.

Sears Point was a pretty good place back in the day. I raced a few MX there in the 70's/80's. They set up the MX course in the hills above the road course. They have kart track too and last year I got to try a 125cc shifter kart there. That was the most violent thing I've ever tried to pilot!

These days it's a little run down, but what a great location! I imagine on Cup day, it's a spectacular take. All the crowds and color...

So Dinger went to Penske? He seems a great talent. Hope it works for him.

I've seen top fuel and funny car over there, I don't even remember what the venue looks like after that.

Yeah, AJ has the 22. I'd think that Ambrose will move into the 43 if they don't have other plans for the number.

I wonder what that guy from Dawsonville is doing next year? He or Ward Burton in the 43 would be cool as heck. Too bad Mark Martin signed already, he'd be perfect in the 43.

Just can't imagine the King allowing a Busch in one of his cars, he has pretty high standards.

Ambrose is that Aussie with the super road racing skill, righ?

Speaking of dicks, How about Kevin Harv Dick. The way he talks to his crews. They need to take him out behind the wood shed And have a do major pee pee slap to get him in proper alignment.

Ward Burton? what the hell has he been doing the last few years?

Running his conservation foundation.

Mark Martin would have been the guy for that car. Being a Ford dealer and all.

Economic's have required the King do several things he would normally resist. Kyle still wears the black stripe.

I think the only way Busch does get that ride is if Ford forces it. And they may. It could be good for them both.

Elliott is busy getting his son's career up and going, he has not been interested in a full schedule because of that. Or so he has said.

I think Jeremy Mayfield is uncommitted at the moment.

He are, and a well liked young lad in the garage and media center. He will say he is Tasmanian though. I am not fully aware of those politics, but I know he thinks it important. "Tasmanian Devil" is his nickname.

Kurt Busch made his deal with Finch. He will be in the 51 car. Most likely a good fit as Finch is a rough and tumble guy who will have no problem dealing with Kurt.

Out of all of the backmarkers I can't ever seem to figure out how Jeff Burton gets to drive anything. I bet Ward makes fun of him for getting pushed around by Jeff Gordon.

Saw that earlier at work...howsaboutthat? Never thought I'd see a Busch back in a Hendrick car.

He is a really nice guy. Used to live here on the GC and yes, Tasmanians are very proud of being Tasmanian.
