Don't know if this has been posted yet, truck test at Eldora. Nice wet, heavy track, but wait until the race in July, it's going to be a dust bowl.

From Lee Spencer's article, "Feud watch is on for Martinsville."
http://msn.foxsports.com/nascar/stor...-040213#!dfkEQ

Danica Patrick vs. Jeff BurtonPatrick forgave Burton for dumping her at Phoenix last year. If she can catch him at Martinsville, it could get interesting. Perhaps a better opponent for Patrick might be Landon Cassill, since he’ll likely be riding in the back with her on Sunday.

---------------------------
It isn't a dead horse. It is alive and active as shown in the article above.

She is consistently riding with the Start and Park group, not the front runners.

Shes been out of the headlines lately what with Logano and Hamlins antics.NASCAR will try to drum up some interest in her less than stellar performance by hyping a"feud" between her and washed up why does he still have a ride Jeff Burton.It aint happenin!

I see that lots of dirt regulars have said they'll be there,Tracey Hines,Schrader,Scott Bloomquist to name a few.Could be one of the most interesting NASCAR sanctioned"events" in a long time.

Because Burton was pretty smart and signed with RCR early in 2011 for far less money before the shit hit the fan at RCR.

Childress did not play his cards very well in 2011, Burton did. RCR's worth as a team has really fallen and if Childress's grandsons aren't players in cup it could get far worse with Harvick leaving.

Interesting side note on how things are at RCR, Earnhardt Ganassi Racing is not using Earnhardt Childress Racing (ECR) engines this year. That joint venture is only 5 years old.

You are right. The new hype is that she is the first woman to race at Martinsville at the Cup level.

Nascar should be able to get her back in front of the cameras with that. And with some carefully placed caution flags for hot dog wrappers on the track, I would bet they can keep her from going down more than 10 -12 laps if she can stay out of the fence.

Should be another epic example of her talent. Even her crew chief has said Martinsville is not a track the team thinks she will do well on. Ya think

I wonder how long his contract is for? I have never understood why RCR has kept that guy at all, I would have cut him loose at least 10 years ago.

Will a Dillon take Harvick's ride? Or how about Kurt Busch?

Jeff Burton hasn't been with RCR for 10 years. He left Roush in 2004 and was replaced by Carl Edwards around the middle of that year.

RCR has a lot invested in the the Dillon kids. That could backfire in a big way if they don't perform as they hope. Havick's gone after this year and that leaves Paul Menard, who isn't bad, but he isn't great either.

I think Richard has just been keeping the team running for the grand-kids. I read several stories that said he seriously considered ending operations when Dale, Sr. died. As long as the sponsors pay the bills, I guess he keeps the lights on, but something tells me his heart isn't really in it anymore.

Menard brings big $$ sponsorship, that is the only reason he has a ride.

Yes, but he's the highest RCR driver in the standings, right now. I don't think that'll last, but he's doing alright.

Mike Dillion, Richard's son in-law is really doing all the day to day at RCR.

I'll reserve comment about any of his management skills as Richard probably oversees all the major decisions, but I spent a day with Dillion and he is a blast to be around.
