Love your writing, Dorothy, you are so much fun to read, I sometimes need tear-offs for my moniter.
I had the same problem with Danica that you have with Ward's security, and then after I had to accept that I was turned down, she went and married a guy who is almost my age. At least maybe I had some influence on her!

Sorry hon. Fan based teams have already been done. Fan 1st ran two teams last season. Dave blaneys #10 and Jason lefflers #38. But hey, if I could, I would :) I could run Tonys team!

That pretty much sums it up. There are the haves and have nots. It is sad but it is also reality. What she said about a team being owned ny the fans is interesting. The Green Bay Packers are owned by their fans. The fans that hold shares actually own them and it works there so it is not an impossibility but highly unlikely. So the future does not look too good for Ward. There are so many young guns and developmental drivers with the big teams it is hard as hell to get a ride. I wish him the best but this late in the game it does not look too good for Ward.

This is not a critique, as I am probably the world's worst writer. I understand that a NASCAR related article should sound like a Jeff Foxworthy commentary but what the heck does "BTW" mean???

By the way, I agree with your your opinion on Burton's driving skills.

That's a great article, big thumbs up!!
I've got a guy at our forum @ that belongs to Wards foundation and is friends with Ward and Stacey Compton, he's read this and you can bet your bippy he's forwarded it to Tabitha. My guess is it/you might just brighten their day a little bit.

You guys are the best! JetSet -- I'm so not up to speed with much these days, but I work with 20-somethings so I have picked up a few text message stuff. BTW means By The Way. It took me a year to figure out what LOL meant -- I thought it meant Look Out Lowes, so that shows ya what I know! And Eaglesoars, if I could do anything in the world right now, it would be to make my buddy Ward's day brigher. I just love the guy! Hugs to you all -- DOT

Count me in!!! I'll have bake sales, garage sales, wash cars, do whatever it takes to get Ward in a good car. Please keep putting his name out there to show that we are still thinking of him.
