News Pt. 2

Let the party continue!

-- I'm pretty excited to see the Ford Mustang coming to NASCAR, even if it is just a nameplate. The Nationwide COT will be a better car than the Sprint Cup COT and you can take that to the bank.

-- Speaking of manufacturers, BMW is pulling out of Formula 1 at the end of this year. Can I be the first to speculate it's move to NASCAR?

-- Scott Lagasse Jr. will be out of the CJM Nationwide car after this week's race in Iowa. Replacing him will be Denny Hamlin for a few races, then possibly Kelly Bires. I guess Gibbs (which has an affiliation w/ CJM) wants to get Matt DiBenedetto a ride for 2010.

-- Ron Hornaday can't lose. Hornaday's racked up an impressive four consecutive wins in the Camping World Truck Series, and has raced out to a points lead that will be difficult to catch. People talk about Mark Martin and his year, but what Hornaday's doing is nearly as impressive.

-- Finally, a hearty Get Well Soon to Felipe Massa.
