T. Labonte to drive No. 55 in road course races

Jun 12, 2007 Full story: Charlotte.com 22

“I look forward to watching ... and learning more about all the Michael Waltrip Racing cars from a different perspective, exclusively as an owner.”

Terry Labonte will drive the No. 55 Toyotas in place of Michael Waltrip for the NASCAR Nextel Cup road course races at Infineon Raceway and Watkins Glen, the team announced Tuesday morning.

'It's not an easy decision for me to remove myself from the car, but I know it is for the betterment of our whole program,' said Waltrip, who has failed to qualify for all but two of this season's Cup races. 'I know Terry's experience and road race savvy will breathe a breath of fresh air into my young team.' Read more

I don't know Mike, nobody mentioned on the radio how he got a lap down at all. It SUCKED listening to him on the radio. I nearly fell asleep if the tv hadn't kept me awake. Terry & Buddy(the crew chief) couldn't get on the same page, to where Michael had to butt in and tell them what to do. ARRRGGHHH.
Dillinger, no Reut wasn't racing. PJ Jones was in the 00 car and finished 12th. Terry and DJ were up in the top 20 for a while there and PJ was always in the back. DJ spun during the race too.
I felt sorry for Matt. He just is NOT a road course man obviously, and shame on him for making Kyle Petty drop the F bomb right after they had prayed. LOL. Stuff happens.

You are so right. I have a pal from Sadler Nation who sometimes loves to pick on me for liking Matt (she would probably freak if she knew I love Mikey!). Anyway, she writes on Myspace how Matt just wrecked or spun out and took about 8 guys with him...sheeez...So, I wrote her back and said, yep, that's my boy, just has to share, cannot leave anybody out." Yeah, roadracing is not Matt's thing, no way.

I start at the hospital doing transcription for the Neurophysiology department tomorrow!!
