Bud Shootout Starting Line-Up Set


Well after much owner point trading and buying over the last few days (there's a story in there for sure - maybe later) the final starting field for the Budweiser Shootout at Daytona is finally set.

Here is your starting line up:

1. Paul Menard, No. 98 Yates Racing Ford
2. Elliott Sadler, No. 19 Richard Petty Motorsports Dodge
3. Reed Sorenson, No. 43 Richard Petty Motorsports Dodge
4. Scott Speed, No. 82 Red Bull Racing Toyota
5. Denny Hamlin, No. 11 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota
6. Tony Stewart, No. 14 Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolet
7. Brian Vickers, No. 83 Red Bull Racing Toyota
8. Bobby Labonte, No. 96 Hall of Fame Racing Ford
9. Dale Earnhardt Jr., No. 88 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet
10. Kyle Busch, No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota
11. Carl Edwards, No. 99 Roush Fenway Racing Ford
12. Kurt Busch, No. 2 Penske Racing Dodge
13. Robby Gordon, No. 7 Robby Gordon Motorsports Dodge
14. Kasey Kahne, No. 9 Richard Petty Motorsports Dodge
15. Jamie McMurray, No. 26 Roush Fenway Racing Ford
16. David Ragan, No. 6 Roush Fenway Racing Ford
17. Michael Waltrip, No. 55 Michael Waltrip Racing Toyota
18. AJ Allmendinger, No. 44 Richard Petty Motorsports Dodge
19. Joey Logano, No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota
20. David Stremme, No. 12 Penske Racing Dodge
21. Jimmie Johnson, No. 48 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet
22. David Reutimann, No. 00 Michael Waltrip Racing Toyota
23. Jeff Burton, No. 31 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet
24. Casey Mears, No. 07 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet
25. Matt Kenseth, No. 17 Roush Fenway Racing Ford
26. Greg Biffle, No. 16 Roush Fenway Racing Ford
27. Kevin Harvick, No. 29 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet
28. Jeff Gordon, No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet

A few notables here that should be considered:

1) Robby Gordon is driving a Dodge even though he is switching to Toyota this year.

and

2) Even though Penske Racing’s Sam Hornish Jr. is now one of the top six Dodges in the owners points because he got them from Bill Davis' 22 car he won't be in the shootout because the new ownership paperwork wasn't filed on time.
You know after all of this, maybe I'll write that story about the buying and selling of owner points tomorrow afterall.
