Last Minute Pre-Season RantnRaving

Green flag! The 2006 Budweiser Shoot Out is less than 2 hrs away, weather permitting. Here are a few preseason questions and comments before it begins.
What I Like:
ARCA's Bobby Venturini is fully recovered from his injuries suffered in a very scary wreck a year ago at Daytona. His sister, Speed's Wendy Venturini got the honors of welcoming him back to racing on live TV.
Carl Edwards is always happy.
Ken Schrader looks good in any driver's suit.
Ken Schrader loods great in the #21 Wood Brothers Ford.
Mark Martin is still racing.
Tony Stewart is still Tony Stewart.
They showed the drawing for the Shootout starting line up on TV. I don't remember them doing that before. I'll probably say the same thing next year.
Jeff Gordon has a good car and is whining about it. Welcome back to the same ol' Jeff.
Dale Earnhardt, Jr. has a good car and will be a contender for another win at Daytona.
It will be a breakout season for Casey Mears.
It will be a breakout season for Jamie McMurray.
It will be a comeback season for Petty Racing.
Richard Petty's grin which outshines the sun (as long as the sun is behind the clouds)
Kyle Petty's grin which outshines his father's.
And I like this article I found on
Jamie McMurray makes his Roush Racing debut in Saturday night's Bud Shootout, a non-points all-star race that launches the season. The car has a new number -- 26 instead of 97 -- at least in part because team owner Jack Roush wants to distance himself from Kurt Busch, a driver he considered a headache. -- Tampa Tribune
What Seems Strange to Me:
Matt Kenseth in a white car.
Bobby Labonte in a yellow driver's suit.
Carl Edwards is always happy.

Finally, A Few Questions:
Will Happy Harvick ever really be happy?
When will people realize that more Toyotas are made in America by American workers than are Fords?
Why is Carl Edwards always so happy?

We'll tune in and see anwers to these and many other questions. Right now, it's time to go racing!!!

I'm so glad Kenseth was only in the white car for the Shootout. Back to the DeWalt car for the 500 and most races this season, if he can keep his tires inflated!!

Good list of likes!!
