    The season has started with Dale Earnhardt Jr announcing leaving DEI and signing with Hendrick Motorsports in 2008. Now Hendrick Motorsports is trying to buy the #8 for Jr. to race in.

    This leaves Kyle Busch looking for a ride in '08.

    Joe Gibbs Racing is currently talking with Toyota and possibly switching in '08.

    Robbie Gordon has announced starting a 2nd team in '08 out of his shop.

    Not sure what DEI and Robert Yates Racing is up to yet.

    the only thing silly i can see is michael isn't in the point race or cup race for a championship.... i think nascar outta do away with owner points and provisionals and base the racing on time once again. its sad when u are the 18th fastest like earlier this year and don't qualify....rollo

    Hey Walter, your not keep with silly season. How many years do you think it will be befor they will just have 10 owners in Cashcar. the teams with one or two cars is gone.The sport is growing to fast and anything else its going to be the guys with the deep pockets that will be on top. I thinnk I will start to watch outlaw races.

    I believe it will be only about 3-4 years when we see all the single car teams gone. World of Outlaws are great to watch. Both the late models and sprint cars on dirt is fun to watch. Actually at the beginning of the month at Eldora, Stewart hosted the "Prelude to the Dream" race for Victory Junction Gang. Wow, Carl Edwards won with Kyle Busch and Jeff Gordon 2nd and 3rd. Other Cup drivers driving Late Model dirt cars were Kevin, Harvick, Tony Stewart, Ryan Newman, Denny Hamlin, J.P. Montoya, J.J. Yeley, Ken Schrader, Bill Elliott, Kenny Wallace and several others that raced on dirt there.

    Well lets remember where most the drivers running at Eldora made their racing starts, on local short tracks. You want good clean excitement go watch a good local dirt or even(cringe) asphault short track race.
    So remember you want real racing to survive support your local short track.

    Smokey,
    If you hadn't noticed that's the way it's been in Nascar since it began,the guys with the most money are on top,with a few exceptions. You get right down to it,isn't that the way it is in life in general,the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.
