Briefly...

A few brief notes to talk about today:

- Wal-Mart leading Busch Series sponsorship derby

The leader to replace Busch as the title sponsor of the aptly named Busch Series is none other than Wal-Mart.  It was reported earlier that Wal-Mart was among the top 3, but they're the leader in the clubhouse as of right now.  Obviously, though, things could change.  Any form of NASCAR, Wal-Mart, and Series just seems weird right now.

- NASCAR open to change in many areas

The sanctioning body of NASCAR is all about change right now.  The Chase system, the points given to a winner, and now even the qualifying system could be overhauled, possibly even this season.  A proposed system has including having multiple cars on the track at the same time.  Keep yours eyes open for more on this in the coming months.

- Benny Parsons in worse condition than most are letting on

In some more sad news, Benny Parsons' condition has been worse than press releases would have you believe.  In a move that was kept quiet to almost everyone, he may not in fact be under contract to TNT to announce their 6 races in the summer.
