Labonte, Petty could swap cars in next few weeks
“I just do what I'm told, I guess. We'll have to wait and see how that turns out.”
Bobby Labonte could find himself in the No. 45 instead of the 43 at Petty Enterprises should Kyle Petty fall out of the top 35 in Nextel Cup owners' points over the next five weeks. via ESPN

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!
