Seems the Penske/Newman revival wasn't as far-fetched as I thought...
I just had to add this... Does anyone else besides me really dislike the new NASCAR website? Ugh, I didn't care for the layout of the old one, but this new one is a disaster as far as I'm concerned... Jayski will be my 1st pick for news from now on...
