Odds & Ends, Part 2

A plethora of Roush Racing announcements today, setting up sponsorship for the 2007 Busch Series:

- Arby's will sponsor the #17 of Matt Kenseth in 13 races next season.  Arby's will also sponsor the car in the spring Bristol Cup race.

- Carl Edwards reunites with Scotts and World Financial Group on the #60 next season.  No word on if Henkel will be back.

- Discount Tire will be the full-time sponsor of David Ragan's #6 Busch car next season, moving over from Chip Ganassi's #41.

In other news:

- Doug Richert has been hired by Red Bull Racing to be the crew chief for Brian Vickers in the #83 next season.

- Kodak is back with Penske Racing in both the IRL and NASCAR as a major associate sponsor.

- Dennis Setzer has been hired to drive the #75 Spears Manufacturing Chevy in 2007.  The move ends a long run with Morgan-Dollar, and I personally think it had something to do with changing numbers this past season.

- Joey Clanton and Zaxby's are the latest combo deal to head to the Craftsman Truck Series as they will run part-time with Wood Brothers/JTG Racing.  I always thought Clanton had the talent and deserved a second year in his Busch career with Brewco.
