Daytona without Robert Yates? It just doesn't seem the same. Yates, the renowned NASCAR engine whiz, has been here doing his thing since the 1960s, but somehow Yates and son Doug got off-track a few years ago.

Time seems to be running out for Yates to obtain two major sponsors for this year. You would think there is some company that would like to sponsor the famous 28 car. His other option would be to sell out part of of his company and bring in a second owner like Rousch did. I hope it works out for them.

Davey Allison drove it until he was killed in a helicopter crash at Talladega quite a few years ago. I have been good and how about you my friendly lady.

I hope they can find a few good sponsors. Yates belongs in NASCAR as much as the Petty's, Earnhardt's and Childress'. They did a cool little commercial on Pre-Season Thunder the other day... I got a kick out of it. Hope so of the big companies saw it and give them a call.

Bill Davis Racing is having problems with sponsors too. JV may only race the 1st 5 races because of it.

No one "belongs" in nascar. Eventually new school pushes out the old school. To bad old fogies.

Do you think age is a factor being that Robert Yates turned the business over to his son and he has two young drivers? Bet you didn't even know that did ya? Old Fogies? That's funny!

That would suck if they couldn't race anymore. How about we get rid of the back marker teams like BAM, Front Row, the Woods Bros(since they haven't done shit in years). That would be 3 sponsors right there that could get on better teams.

Hell, I think the highlight of the last 15 years for Yates was Mikey winning the Winston for them

Dammit, I meant the Woods Brothers, not Yates. Michael won the Winston for the Woods Brothers.

What the hell is Yaters Rocky, what drugs are you on, or have you been drinking? You obviously didn't read my second post correcting myself because I said Yates in the first post but realized what I had said after I clicked on post comment. So I corrected that.

So Rocky, since you are the "all knowing" King of NASCAR info, how could you not have known that Michael never drove for Yates?

Have a great time Rocky---let us know if you see Buffy down there with Wall-banger.

BTW, don't get too close to those retaining walls----don't forget, Wall-Banger might just wall-bang with that CRAPA #55 Toy-let!

Give us all some Banger-scanner-traffic, when you get back! I wonder if he will be saying the same stuff as last season----"This thing drives just like the shit I got from Bill Davis"! I about rolled-off my chair when he let that out, last season, during one of the races!

I'll try to keep Renee in "tactful-mode" while you are gone; so, we don't scare-off any more posters, OK?
