Oz, Post a good link for the Aussie series.  I'm a bit curious.



http://www.v8supercars.com.au/

http://www.speedcafe.com.au/news/v8-supercars/

http://www.speedtv.com/programs/australian-v8-supercars/

So the series formula is rear wheel drive, 5 litre V8s. For 15 years it has been a duopoly for Ford and Holden (GM's Australian marque) as these were the only cars (Falcon and Commodore respectively) that fit that criteria. This year 2013, the "Car of the Future" will be introduced which is the standardised chassis and rules changed so that any manufacturer that produces a 4-door sedan for the Australian market can enter, regardless of engine size, and driveline configuration.
As a result, Nissan and Mercedes-Benz have entered cars with likely more to come.
The races are all held either on temporary street circuits or permanent road courses, no ovals. Generally 2 or 3 seperate races on a weekend comprise a single round of the championship, with the exceptions being the 2 traditional endurance races.

Bear with me.  I'm trying to see what I can catch if I set a trap with some bait!

Should we start hiding the goats now?  ;)


Went out last night and got really wasted. 
I woke up in the middle of the night next to some chick who was snoring and farting, so I knew I made it home OK.

There's one thing I didn't miss com being here as compared to there grin1
Kevin Harvick on his last year with RCR hopefully will be able to do something after just making the Chase. Last year was somewhat of a disappointment compared to the year before.

 welcome Jedi!

Anytime you feel like serving something you have free reign!   Sorry, but, the place came with A&W on tap.  You'll have to drink a few before I can change the barrel. 

Order up!

Interesting Stewart/Haas team news and tidbits via jayski.com  I forgot they were changing the top 35 rule.  Should make qualifying a heck of a lot more interesting!

Hard to believe that even Tony has troubles finding sponsorship for even his car much less Ryan's.  Danica has only 3 races non-sponsored?!  Wonder if that holds true for next year if she does poorly or gets little TV time.

Quote
#10-Danica Patrick will not be using #14-Tony Stewart's owners points to start the year. Stewart said, "I worked hard for my points" and believes Patrick will be fine. The #10 team finished the 2012 season 33rd in owners points but been told those owners points will be used for Tommy Baldwin's #7 team with driver Dave Blaney. Baldwin will use the #36 owners points for his 2nd team, car #36 [unknwon driver/plans]. So the #10 car goes into the season with no owners points and Partick will have to make the races via speed. There is no top-35 or guaranteed spots in 2013, but owners points will used for 6 cars each race for provisional starting spots 37th thru 42nd and poosibly the 43rd spot.

Patrick has not finalized a deal to run any Nationwide Series races in 2013 but is hoping to do a 10 race deal with Turner Scott Motorsports.

As for Stewart running the 2013 Indy 500 for Penske Racing, he has open invitation for Indy 500 from Roger Penske, but has no plans to do so in 2013.

On the sponsor front for SHR the #14 has nine races open without a primary, the #39 of Ryan Newman has 8-9 races open for a primary sponsor and #10-Patrick has three racesopen for a primary sponsor.

Figures Tony would bring in Danica, then throw her to the wolves. Blaney doesn't need the points he usually qualifies.

You are absolutely dead on about Dave being a qualifying machine.  Seems like every year his team needs him to get into the 500 at the start of the season and he always does.

Poor guy has noooo luck during the race though.
