What news? The fastest cars do not necessarily make the race. You have Hornish locked into the race with the points Busch earned last year and past champions provisionals on top the top 35 from last year. The 4th fastest car could possibly not make the race.
That is the only real story other than are tubby little local making a redneck fool of himself again.

If you're not ready to run with the big dogs, stay on the porch. That's one of our redneck sayings for things such as this. It's truely sad to see historic figures such as the Woods brothers fade from the sport but the only true constant is that all things change. In every aspect of life, only the smartest and most adaptable survive. The ways things are done changes and you either make the change successfully or fall by the wayside. Yates Racing, the Woods Bro., Furniture Row, Robby Gordon, Petty Enterprises, all standing on a banana peel, careful how you step!

True to a point. How come the 21 car was the forth fastest in Duel practise on Wed? The Woods and Awesome Bill may not be washed up.

the wood brothers need to team up with someone with deep pockets. i think only then will they be up there with rausch, etc. the same could be said for petty and maybe yates. things do change. bill is not 28 anymore but as proved with evernham, he can still race some with a decent car and he has privisionals. thats why the 21 team wanted him and though old , is better than ken shraeder or jon wood. i just hate to see him ride around.
