NAPA has a meeting with MWR this Thursday, I see them going no where, I hope Office Depot tells Old Roach where to get off! That sponsor would look good on the 00, for $15-$18 mil a year for 3 years! Any sane person has to ask themselves WHY would UPS want to pay RCR or RFR 23mil when I'm sure they are paying less to MWR, and have to whoever DJ drove for, for years! MWR has a 3 car operation, They will have sponsors on the hoods, Mikey can get sponsor's missing races, When other teams that were in couldn't! Remember The sponsor's poll? Who is most marketable? Jr. was No.1 of course! Mikey was No.3!!! Not bad for a guy not winning races!

Yes I believe that Michael will have sponsors no matter what. It doesn't take much brainpower to realize that Mikey can market for almost anyone effectively.

Mike's a big personality! He can pitch about anything. I don't think there is a sponsor out there that wouldn't consider Mike. Think about it, when you see a NAPA store who do you think of? Or Aaron's? Even the Best Western commercial's are great.
No, I don't think Mike has anything to worry about when it comes to sponsors.

I agree I like that commercial where they bring the broken car to sign that was good and it sticks with you in your head.

Yep! JJ-48 was 2nd, Jeff Gordon was 4th, Dale Sr. was still in the top 10! The busted car is a good commercial, My favorite to date is the white Cockatiel, "55 is the number of your car Michael not the speed limit!"

First you have to sign up with Topix and get an account, then in your profile you can browse the pics you have stored and upload one to your profile.

Clayton...I can't even make my own profile anymore. I made an "error" last year and this year, I tried to re-do it through Topix, but they sent me an E-mail saying there was already someone with the name Dillinger. I wrote and told them that was me! I still have not signed up properly!

Oh yea, that is another good commercial. The look on Mikey's face when the bird says that is priceless.
