While I see your point, neither Petty nor Labonte will likely have a job very far in the future if they don't at least avail themselves to the rules as they are - or at least before the loopholes get closed tight! As Petty Points out, he would not be the first to do so Mikey Waltrip has bought his way into a race before, and the Rolling Stones had a song called "Winning Ugly" - I guess "Qualifying Ugly" or "Top 35 - Ugly" is pretty close. Petty Ent. can afford to make this move at this point, if they do not ensure a reasonable start to the 2008 season, they might not be able to afford anything. Petty is synonymous with NASCAR, and Labonte is a pretty recognizable name too - I'd just like to see either one of the two win - ugly or otherwise!
