Good I'm hoping A.J. gets back in the car then if Skinner doesn't want to drive it full time anyways and is really just helping out. We will see.

I like a A.J. but it's good to see the racing world finally start understanding there is more to running a Cup car than just buckling up, holding it to the floor and turning left. A year or so ago, everyone was crying and wailing that it was the end of the sport. The open wheel drivers were going to take over. It was the end of life as we know it. Well, guess what? Those boys are having to learn how to race a stockcar just like anybody else. In another year, some of them will be back in open wheel.

Maybe this one. But Hornish, Frachitti, PC will stay. They're doing ok for rookies with 5 races (sprint)!!!!!! AJ is a champ driver so it doesn't matter to me what happens to him really, I just feel bad. But Hornish and Dario are going no where fast. They can't go out and win them all, they're rookies remember? Last year it was JUan this that, but you can't expect them to go out and win them all. The bar has to come down some. Wont be back in open wheel though.
