Bobby Labonte has a full time ride for 2010. Good for him--he is one of the very good guys in NASCAR. And, as a former Champion, he brings a lot of perks to a team without much status. Bobby will be driving the #71 TRG Motorsports Chevrolet for team owner Kevin Buckler. Hopefully the team will be competitive. Bobby will surely get everything he can out of the car. Here is a link to the short story in USA Today:
Carl Edwards won the Nationwide race in Phoenix. With only one race left in the season, Kyle Busch will be the champion if he can start the final race next week in Homestead, Florida. Nice win for Carl, but he couldn't perform his signature back flip due to the broken foot he suffered earlier in the season. Carl did a lame somersault instead. Hopefully he will be doing a lot of back flips next year.
Denny Hamlin and Brad Keselowski continued their season long on track feud. Should be interesting next year when Brad drives full time on the NEXTEL Sprint Cup circuit. Seems like a lot of guys want a piece of him. Here is a summary of yesterday's race from USA Today:
Next to last Sprint Cup race today in Phoenix. My guess is Jimmy Johnson will finish well, maybe even win, and lock up the Cup going into the last race of the season.
