This season is over, like it or not Jimmie Johnson won the cup and Carl Edwards who made a mad dash at the end finished second.
But now comes the insanity of the new season, with driver changes and new cars and numbers, switching around you will really need a program to follow the first few races this year, it will be kind of hard the first couple races til your eyes get adjusted to the new colors.
Some of the things we have to look forward to this coming year………
gets a new team mate in the 10 car, Reed a Georgia boy who has been with the team the past few years, the past 3 years have seen a couple different drivers in the 10 car, Scott Riggs, he made a few really good shows but usually faded at the end, or got caught up in someone mess. Last season seen Patrick , an open wheeler who made a very good show at Montreal Busch race last year (07) got him self one pole this year and had a couple good shows but couldn’t keep his mouth shut so he was out before the silly season of driver changes got started really good. And last but not least A.J. , who has impressed lots of people with his showings in the last few races of the 08 season, leaving people wondering if he would be able to find a ride for 09, G.E.M. has already said if they could find sponsorship for him they would be willing to run a 4th car for him.
We have the new team from RCR with Clint Boyer taking a new car number of 33, Caseywho spent last season following the rest of the superstars at H.M.S. will be coming to join Jeff Burton and Kevin driving for .
And one of the most looked at new teams of Stewart/Haas Racing, with new part owner Tony Stewart, who will be bringing aof a few seasons and last years 500 winner Ryan Newman to the new team. Fans of Stewart are praying for this to be the godsend of returning Tony to the spotlight under a Chevy banner instead of Toyota.
I know there will a few more surprises during the off season as teams lay off crew and some find new homes and some go back to what ever they were doing before they came to NASCAR.
Where will the superstars of the crews land? We will just have to wait and see…
I hope thatdriver ones well and everyone has a safe ad happy thanksgiving….
