What a joke. Great equipment at Haas. Sign a guy who can't make it with Ray's cars. Put Jeff or Sauter in that stuff and they would have better finishes than monkey boy Riggs.

Riggs just sealed his doom in the Cup series. A year or two in the HAAS CNC junk and he'll be off to the truck series. It's a shame too. I've seen the man do some great racing.

i heard on speed 3 times that haas might go to 3 teams instead of letting go green or sauter, but that's not their first choice.

Its about time they got rid of Sauter, he has only won 1 race in a Haas car. He can't drive a car on a track over 3/4's of a mile long, Nascar has only 3 tracks under that, so he's worthless as far as I can see.

PS. It was a Busch win, he can't compete with the cup drivers, so I'm glad to see Riggs in the Yellow car for 08.

No thank you riggs and mayfield are done. Mayfield has drove for hendrick and everham. Riggs with everham if they couldnt hang there i dont see them winning anything at haas cnc. But getting rid of sauter i believe was the worst choice they made. He is young and Driving well to be in 3rd rate equipment. but that is just my opinion.

I agree on Mayfield but Riggs is easily the best driver of the three. Sauter had no track championships in late model stocks, Riggs did. Sauter no wins in Hooters cup, Riggs did. Sauter had no wins in Craftsman Truck, Riggs had 5. Sauter had 2 Busch wins, Riggs has 4. Sauter is out of his league in Cup and Busch and probably Craftsman truck.

well what are your predictions on riggs finishes in 08. And 2nd question, do you think that riggs and or mayfield will stay in the top 35 next season. to me i dont like that set up because example sauter stayed in the top 35 because of his hard work. Riggs gets a free ride next season also does mayfield because sauter and jeff greeen faught hard to keep their 3rd class euipment in the top 35 in points. And as of now i believe sauter and green both still do not have a ride for next season bt well see what happens . THANKS FOR YOUR COMMENTS<KEEP THEM COMMIN NASCAR TALK IS MY THING>

The biggest mistake Riggs made was going to evernham! Rays cars were junk this year! In my opinion Riggs kinda got the shaft at evernham.

I think Sadler made a mistake also...hope I'm wrong.
