I hope and pray they make it especially JV. Now I think they should have went to Busch or Nationwide first but Nascar didn't make that rule. So the only track time they can get will be racing, sadly!

I should say Patrick Carpentier got into the car and drove it very well until that tyre went down in the qualifying race, Dario Franchitti and Scott Speed were involved in some accident in a completely innocent position. Only JV seemed to have to many troubles getting used to these cars, I mean, this is not likely his first or second time having some sort of troubles of getting the car turning right on a restrictor plate track ever since his first race at Talladega last autumn.

Not fooling anyone, but I'll answer this Jacques touched Andretti when he moved up the track which got him spinning.
