    Actually I just hope she finishes.. She is supposed to race in 24 races this year. But she doesn't have a sponsor. Hope she gets one....Dan

    She is a great racer, but after running out of gas (not necessarily her fault, the blame goes to the person figuring out fuel utilization), it is going to be a little harder to find a sponsor. If she had finished the race (top 20), she probably would have no problems finding a sponsor. She is going to be getting alot of press (because she is a minority in the sport), so hopefully the extra attention will Lure sponsors.

    I was a little upset when I heard some of the guys around here talking about her and sponsors because they said she probably wouldn't have problems getting Tampax, Avon, etc. to sponsor her, I just thought that was uncalled for, she can drive circles (no pun intended) around these clowns all day long, and they ridicule her. Oh well we will see, it should be a great season.

    P.S. I felt bad for Dale Jr. After loosing his father last year, and coming back after two tires going down, and sheet metal repairs, it seemed like he was going to do well, and then his luck went South. Maybe Rockingham will be nicer to him this year than last.

    #3 will always be in the hearts of NASCAR fans.
