Bad Brad. He's not conservative at all. I've seen driver's over the years trying to play it safe and fail.
I look for Kenseth or Biffle for the win. No reason, just a feeling.

Keleselowski, has it wrapped up & you know the Captain is making sure nothing goes wrong. It'll give Dodge the win going out. Bummer someone doesn't pick up the Chargers. As I'm sure the captain would love to build motors for other teams, like RPM doesn't build their own motors.

Dodge is taking away all involvement in NASCAR. It's not Penske's decision. It's too bad because Penske's finally made them a front runner. Plus, it's putting 60 people from the engine shop out of work. At least they'll go out on top. I really don't want to see any ads bragging about the championship either.

Thats true. Only adds are the Dart & Ram guts, glory.

Oh, is that right? ^^^^^^^^^^ I thought that was the Captains decision. I thought Ford gangled a bigger carrot in front of him than Dodge. RPM or others don't build their own motors, so I figured if someone like RPM picks up the Dodge banner, They'd need Penske motors.

You're right. Penske did announce back in March that he was switching to Ford. Dodge had no other top team to sign, so they announced their withdrawal. They were looking at Furniture Row as a second to Penske, but that went away with the Penske switch.
