Cup guys in town

4:45 this morning I was headed to work and passed the Cup haulers for the #42 and # 1 cars going west on I-4 through Orlando. These weren’t show car haulers, they were the real deal. Anyone down south know where they were headed?

Disney World Speedway!

Yep, probably Disney… Several Nationwide/Truck teams were there a couple weeks ago and we all know WDW can use the money for track rental LOL…

Thanks, that one didn’t even occur to me…

RCR out at Disney and Brad K in #22

FYI Disney doesn’t get the track rental $$. Its up to Petty Exp whether they rent it or not.

Now that’s not chump change.

NASCAR’s 2011 season will be impossible to match, but it also will bring in a whole new group of FANS.

Some say Danica Patrick is going the WIN Most Popular Driver" for 2012 (remember she bring a lot of her FANS with her to NASCAR).


What’s your 2 cents worth???


How times change… The winner of the Daytona 500 this year gets a million-and-a-half dollars (of course that’s the total awarded to the team, but it’s still a lot of $$$)…
Ned Jarrett - two-time Cup champion, winner of 50 races, made just under $350,000 for his entire CAREER! No wonder he got into promotion and broadcasting LOL…
