MWR to two teams?
MWR to two teams?

to lose UPS? Toyota is expected to pair down Michael Waltrip racing from a three-car effort to a two-car squad, shifting some of that support to JGR's three-car team of Kyle Busch, Tony Stewart and Denny Hamlin. Dale Jarrett is said to be seriously considering retirement, trading in his helmet for a microphone as a television analyst, which would leave MWR with Michael Waltrip and David Reutimann. There has been talk that UPS, unhappy with the lack of exposure the company has received this year from Jarrett's struggles to make races, is looking at other teams for 2008 sponsorship with Roush Fenway Racing a target, possibly for Greg Biffle's #16 entry.(RacingOne)(8-8-2007)

I hope this is just a rumor.  I know he planned to retire at the end of 2008.  I would be sade to see him go

Good day gone bad.

Jarrett and his team felt good about their chances in Sunday's Pennsylvania 500. The #44 UPS team brought a car that had seen limited track time, but one that they felt would be a strong contender if they could get through qualifying. Jarrett did get through qualifying and showed the strength of his car by running as high as 3rd at one point in the race. He was running 26th when the car's fuel pump malfunctioned midway through the 200-lap race and relegated him back into a disappointing 42nd-place finish.

The #44 UPS Toyota Camry

Sunday's race began extremely well for Dale Jarrett. He took the green flag on the outside of row 20 in the 40th position. Immediately Jarrett showed the strength of his #44 UPS Toyota Camry. As lap after lap ticked away, he continued to run down more and more competitors to work his way up near the top-20 by lap 64 when the caution flag waved. Up to that point Jarrett felt the car was strong but just a little tight on the exit of each corner.  Rest of the story over at UPS Racing

I was impressed with how we did in the race, the fuel pump really upset me.  aaaahahahhahahhahahahahhahahahahha

Nothing But Good News.

I am so excited that this might be happening.  I figured this year they would be ship jumpers. 

First, Roger Penske announced he was planning to build a NASCAR test track near his shops in Mooresville. Now, fellow car owner Bobby Ginn says he plans to build a NASCAR test track, probably a 11/2-miler, somewhere in South Carolina.

And the new owners of Virginia International Raceway (VIR), the road course near Danville, are considering adding a flat track specifically for NASCAR’s Nextel Cup testing.

It’s all in reaction to NASCAR’s testing rules, which limit the places at which stock-car teams can test as well as the tires they can test on, specifically, no 2007-model Goodyears.

Toyota: Gibbs? Penske merge with Waltrip? Yates?Collapse )

Tony Stewart would finally be eligible to become my favorite driver when DJ retires in little less than 18 months.  JGR let's move forward.

Changes Announced at Michael Waltrip Racing

ORNELIUS, N.C., (May 2, 2007) ----- Michael Waltrip announced today the addition of Jason Burdett to Michael Waltrip Racing (MWR). Effective immediately, Burdett joins MWR to serve as crew chief for the No. 44 UPS Team.

Jason Burdett

MWR hired Burdett to add more depth to the organization as well as to bring new ideas and organization to the No. 44 UPS Team. The New York-native joins MWR from Robert Yates Racing (RYR) where he started working in 1999. He spent the 2000 to 2002 seasons at Hendrick Motorsports where he worked with both the No. 24 and No. 48 teams before returning to RYR in 2003 to work with the No. 88 team - first as a car chief and most recently as the assistant crew chief.  Read Full StoryCollapse )

It is intresting to see how this turns out, Dale can't get any worse.  I am surprised that, becasue DJ was excited to work with him and everything.

Do what you need to do

DJ will be 37th in points and has no championship provisionals. Left.  Well all need to do what we need to do to see DJ race.  It would be a shame for him not to race next week.  Sad to see DR blow an engine with so littile time left.  Those Toyotas could have doen something with nothing.  Here's to you DJ, even though you are having a rough time.

Running

DJ was 43rd in practice, picked up to 38th for the race.  This guarntees that DJ will be in the show until Phoenix.  Let's keep Talladaga in the back of our minds, while watching Good's Cool Orange 500, the Samsung 500, and teh Subway Fresh Fit 500.

#16 too low
#16-Greg Biffle's team faces penalties after his car failed post-race inspection following a fifth-place finish. Robin Pemberton, NASCAR's vice president for competition, said the car was too low. Pemberton would not speculate on the penalty, which could include a fine and points deduction, saying inspectors wanted to go over the car completely at the R&D Center in Concord, N.C., before a ruling is made. Biffle's car, as well as the #5 of winner Kyle Busch, were taken to Concord as a part of what will be a routine process as NASCAR implements the Car of Tomorrow this season. Pemberton said Busch would have the car back in time for Martinsville. That was good news to crew chief Alan Gustafson, who plans to use the car as a backup next week.(ESPN.com)(3-25-2007)

Taking cars that fail inspection to R&D sounds like a good deal, I was hoping for a points penalty. I want DJ to be in the top 35, but I don't think this one will help GO #44

you wanna sign....
That commerical with DJ and the guy playing the video game is awesome.  You know I drive fro UPS, you wanna sign for this butt whippen.  He also dropped the f-bomb after #17 wrecked him.  He meant be 36 coming into next week.  Let's hope for some speed like this week, or some point deduction.

DJ got the run I think he needed!!!  He got in the show on speed, he picked up 1.781 MPH from practice.  Also gained on the leader.  Which is all good.
