Wow this paid off big time for Stremme! I hope he can get out there and show them what he's made of!

I like Stremme. I'm glad to see he got a decent ride as I feel he kind of got the raw end of the deal last year.

I thought Alltel was bought out by Verizon (or another cell company) and wouldn't be back on the can next year. Interesting.

Happy to see Stremme get a ride. Hope Roger can give him some decent car's to drive. His cars this year after the Daytona race have not done much.

That's what I thought. I guess they are going to keep the Alltel name then? I know AT&T has to pull out since they don't use the Cingular name anymore.

I am glad he doesn't have to drive for Rusty anymore.. I think he has been a dirty driver in the Nationwide series.. I like him, but I think he's been coached by Rusty and has been doing some dirty driving..
has anyone heard what happened to JJ?

Doesn't say much for Penske's effort to be one of the elite owners. I look for Kurt to leave when his contract is up.

ohhhhh I just figured something out.. David is the only guy they could get that would be teamates with Kurt.. he said "what the heck, I've been teamates with Stephen this past year, I think Kurt will be a step up from that,,"
and JJ had been the driver for the 96 car and he was removed abrusptly, no mention other than that he had been released.. I think that is kind of rude... I hope he is oK.

He's a nice guy but... Ok driver? I don't know, look what he did to the 18 team last year compared to this year. The 96 team was in the top 35 last year and the beginning of this year then he got into the car and they dropped out of the top 35. Very, very nice guy though.

Well Debi the guy they gave his ride to seems to be removed also.
I guess Sliced Bread will be driving the 96 to
get ready for the 20 car next year.

I know I agree, you know one thing is Roger doesn't give up and he's loaded so sooner or later I look for them to be competitive. Also Roger is a good guy and I think Stremme will fit in well there.
