Oh, Geez. Bristol is one of my favorite tracks. The only one I've been to is Indy.

I got to see a radiator break followed by shooting flames.

What a sweet track though.

Kind of glad to see Jack "Cat-In-The-Hat"Roush finally win a WC Championship(even though Bobby Labonte/Joe Gibbs Racing is my fav[a lot more so though when he raced Grand Prix'*]),....now maybe he'll stop crying that he always is getting screwed by NASCAR out of one(couple of times real close with Martin.....but no cigar).Martin is most likely satisfied because HE hand-picked Kennseth to drive for Jack several years ago,and is co--owner of the 17 car.

Actually, Mark owns none of the 17 car. It'* just listed with him as owner, cuz Rousch is fielding more cars than Nascar allows. Martin doesn't have a penny in it. Same with Jeff Gordon being listed as the owner of Jimmie Johnson'* car. He doesn't have a penny invested in it. It'* just an easy way around the rule.

Didn't know that NASCAR has a limit on the number of cars an owner can field ?,..must be two cars??,.....that being the case,there should be a clamp down on the way owners can 'designate' who tecnically owns a particular car[what'* wrong with this picture!],....Big-buck conglomerates like Roush and Hendricks shouldn't have that kind of an advantage.
Next Season should be interesting when NASCAR re-vamps the points system to give the race winners more points,and the cars that finish below the upper mid-pack no points,......like all of the other racing leagues,CART,F1,IRL.

The limit per owner is 3 cars. Rousch has 4, Hendricks....5?

The points were already adjusted this year....slightly, and aren't scheduled to be adjusted again for next year. No rule changes are planned yet, either.
