Are You Ready...

...for some "slam-drafting?!"

Welcome to the 2006 NASCAR Nextel Cup season.

Gibbs boys looked good today-obviously...

I would say this could possibly be the most wide open "chase" for the Cup in a long time.

Some other quick observations from qualifying and the Bud Shootout today:

*Childress racing has benefited from their partnership with Cosworth...1 pole and 1 top 10.

Has the greatest name in Cup racing history finally begun to put the pieces together to field a competitive Petty, Loomis, Labonte?

*Not sure what to hthink about DEI, Jr. like they were just happy to be in the middle of the pack.

*The Big Boys...Hendrick, Roush...looked good and bad...see above.

*Carl Edwards got SCREWED by Nascar decision makers today...are these people dumber than the NCAA rule-makers? Looks close.

*Could Kyle Bush be a bigger douche-bag than his brother? Judging from todays on-track performance and off-track comments...I would respond with a resounding...YES!

*Can Ray Everenham finally put it all together this year? With the current driver stable and Charger nose, I say no...although "Krash Kahne" remains somewhat of an enigma.

Any more...?
