That's my general reaction to news that Bobby Labonte will drive the newly-minted #96 Yates/HOF Ford Fusion.  The addition of as both primary sponsor and NASCAR official sponsor is welcome news.  The Yates team now has to be looked at as one of the most-improved, from left for dead 2 years ago to a full 4-car lineup for the time being, sponsorship for the #'s 28 and 38 pending, of course.  This move is also surprising because based on what I had heard, Target had approved Labonte being their driver, and promo work had already been done with Labonte.  Upon evaluation, I guess a ride with Ford's second team is better than one with Chevy's third, fourth, or fifth, in some opinions.
