Welcome, Stanley

It's getting closer and closer to the start of the 2008 Nascar season. Testing has already begun at Daytona and drivers are getting used to their cars of tomorrow (COT) which they will run the whole season this year.

Tony Stewart is also getting acquainted with his new car--a Toyota. He has so many fans it will be interesting to see if he experiences any backlash going from a Chevy (very American) to a Toyota (very much perceived as non-American). Michael Waltrip and Dale Jarrett took a lot of heat for that last year so maybe they softened the blow a little for Smoke.

In Elliott Sadler news, Stanley Tools has recently announced that they will be sponsoring the #19 Best Buy Dodge for 12 races in 2008. One of those races is the Texas race in the fall. So I guess I'll get to see Elliott drive with the Stanley Tools paint scheme in November. It still breaks my heart that I never got to see him drive that M&M car. Mmmmm....M&M's. Gotta go.

Countdown to Daytona: 4 weeks.

Stumble Upon Toolbar


  1. Doesn't everyone love Tony Stewart? I can't imagine him getting any backlash at all. Sadler is still #19? Look how nice I'm being on Nascar Monday.

  2. Stewart is a smart-aleck. He's got a lot of fans but I'm sure their are just as many that don't like him. Just not to the extent that people don't like Gordon. Sadler is still #19 and Best Buy is his primary sponsor.

  3. I should proofread before I post. I mean 'there' not 'their'.
