Rookies Are Earning Their DarlingtonStripes

With the Darlington race this weekend there have been quite a few rookies earning their 'stripes' early in practice.

Those who have earned their stripe include; JJ Yeley (who really isn't a rookie, but oh well), Patrick Carpentier, and Sam Hornish.

"I was lost," Carpentier said. "I've never been on an oval in my life where you turn twice in the same corner.

Say 'Hello' to the Lady in Black Patrick, she's going to get you and your little dog too.

My choices for this weekend? Anyone who's last name begins in a 'B'. I think they all stand a good chance in winning. One other selection would be Dale Jr, just because he seems to run well during night races - has anyone else noticed that too?

I still think someone with a last name starting in "B" is the better choice, but Earnhardt will be in the top 5 for sure.

A couple of updates for you:

I made a new post at my 1957 Chevy Black Widow Site - it's a good read.

For some reason Blogger has not been sending me emails when you leave comments so if I miss some I apologize now.
