Oh I don't worry bout Rocky, Wallbanger, and Jeff. They are known for lying(well, not so much Rocky but Jeff & Wallbanger are known to be the biggest liars on the board) I am thinking Rocky just misunderstood what I said, or didn't read my post correcting myself.

Besides, nothing I can do will scare Rocky off here. He loves us. We miss him when he doesn't post. He's ALOT smarter than Wallbanger ever will be. I actually respect Rocky, which is why I didn't lay into him like I would Wallbanger.

Has anyone considered that Jack Roach has a BIG hand in what's going on at Yates? I mean he did make them move over beside his shops, they have been building and "trading" engines, cars, and technology! I figure Roach probly already owns a huge piece of Yates Racing! He may have invested in it to fail? I wonder what Yates could have had(engines & another way to keep all his teams) that he could've wanted?

Exactly Dirtfan. Old school NASCAR raced on dirt too. Did you know that in Daytona, they raced half on the road and half on the beach before France built Daytona Speedway? The whole point of this racing in the begining was so bootleggers could get away from cops by any means possible. That included dirt racing.

Wouldn't surprise me none G. Roach is just that, a Roach. I wouldn't be surprised if he's just itching for Yates to go out of business.

No way, Roach has wanted more than 5 teams, how else could he control more than allowed if not to invest in another company. When you want all the cookies, thats what you want. Power, control, clout, money, etc.
