Well this week the NASCAR teams head out to the San Francisco Bay Area. Actually, a more refined description of the area is the “Wine Country” of Napa, Sonoma, and Mendecino valleys. This is the first of the two road courses that the drivers will converge on in the 2009 race season.
This is also the first opportunity for the “hired guns/road race ringers” to jump into these big race cars and try to provide their prospective car owners with a road race victory. The two most prevalent road racers ringers are, Canadian Ron Fellows and “Who Said? Boris Said”.
There are a handful for NASCAR regulars that are good road racers, in their own right. Tony Stewart, Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson, and Mark Martin can be extremely good at a road race venue . Don’t overlook JPM, Juan Pablo Montoya. JPM is a former Indy 500 winner, Formula 1 winner, and a previous winner at Infineon. The Infineon victory is JPM’s only Cup level victory so far in his career.
A highlight of the NASCAR Now program yesterday, Ricky Craven asked Boris how he was gonna approach the race at Infineon Raceway this weekend? Boris’ reply was quite Boris Said!! He replied that he was going to” drive like a Doberman with a hangrenade in his mouth”!!
Who is your choice at Infineon Raceway this weekend?
Memo #1 to me: Don’t try to feed Boris Said!
Memo #2 to me: Find out where I can get a SAIDHEAD wig.
UNTIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
