Yeah, if they are looking for a Canadian audience, JV would be the ticket. Perhaps PT would do well there also. But the TRuck series is not really the “big show” that NASCAR Nextel Cup is.

As for why trucks – well Bill Davis doesn’t have the cash to just run another car and the trucks are just the cars with truck bodies on them instead of car bodies on them. So they aren’t quite as far removed from the big show as it seems. My guess is they want to give JV a test and Busch is so over run with nascar drivers that it doesn’t really work as a feeder/ test… Read more »

The honor is all ours, Podium. You even won Post of the Week. That’s not easy around here. ;)

Just ask John Stone who’s been trying to get it back for about three weeks now.
