  1. Oh boy Danica Patrick, that should be a popular choice.
    They may not be racing at Stafford but the SRX prototype is turning laps with none other then Kenny Schrader driving and Ray Evernham overseeing the test.
    Was hoping they had a transponder on it that would show up on Race Monitor but no such luck.
    The pressure on Evernham to make this thing work must be stratospheric. Imagine literally everything new about this event and he succeeds of fails in prime time.

    Be careful what you wish for. Danica Patrick will be way better in the booth than Lindsay Czarniak has ever dreamed of being. Soon you will be wishing for more Danica and less Lindsay.

  3. I can not wait to see Tony race!!!!
    And all the guys!!!
    See you at the races
    BIG FAN!!!

  4. I can’t wait, this should be fun.
