Pre-Talladega Linkage

This is one of my favorite weekends of the year. Gratuitous links, courtesy of someone too busy to write a real post today:

- A must-read on the legend of Talladega, it's old but for the old school fans of the sport it's always good to see someone that remembers the curse.

- Paul Menard takes his sideburns and dad's $$$ to Yates Racing for next season. The slide of DEI continues and Yates needs the cash. A win-win, in my eyes.

- Story about the struggles of open-wheel drivers in NASCAR this season. You mean those same ones ESPN called "The best rookie class in NASCAR history" back in February? Yeah, about that...

- Updating yesterday's story about Rusty's possible comeback, he shoots it down. I'm not convinced, not yet anyway.

- Nice little story about the process of UPS moving their dollars to David Ragan and Roush Fenway for 2009.

- Joey Logano will pull double duty in the ARCA Series as well as the Truck Series, where he'll drive the #59 that Ted Musgrave threw a hissy over and quit back at Vegas. Thankfully, he has been pulled out of the shitbox that is the DLP car.

- JTG Daugherty racing has formed an alliance with Michael Waltrip Racing for next season. This sounds more like the pretty new girlfriend moving into the guy's house after a tough divorce. Will they get married? We'll see, we'll see.

- The entry lists for the weekend. Bram delivers the pure stats.

Who's getting up at 7 AM to see the unveiling of Jeffy's new car?

Not me.
