Cali Homecoming

Today AJ, along with Kyle Petty and fellow rookie David Ragan, participated in a Press Luncheon arranged by our friends over at Infineon Raceway. McCormick and Kuleto's Restaurant in Ghirardelli Square hosted the event. It was a great place for the presser because it came complete with view of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz. Not a bad way to spend a beautiful afternoon in San Francisco! Not surprisingly, most of the media's attention was focused on AJ - on topics such as qualifying this weekend, his road racing background, and his California roots (AJ hails from Los Gatos, CA). And of course one person did ask manage to ask him how he planned to "bring sexy back" to NASCAR, as AJ is fond of telling people. His response? "My oozing good looks of course." Typical AJ!

Tune in to Trackside LIVE on the SPEED Channel Friday at 6:00 pm EST (3:00 pm PAC) to see AJ discuss these topics and more with the Trackside gang. Football great Jerry Rice, formerly of the San Francisco 49ers, is also scheduled as a guest.

Then, after Trackside, AJ and Brian will take on Infineon's 11 turns for Cup qualifying, airing on SPEED at 7:00 pm EST (4:00 pm PAC).

Wow! NASCAR just parked Jeff Gordon and JJ for the day. They failed qualifying inspection. Will start 41st and 42nd for the race on Sunday.

Good luck TRB! We are all cheering for you.

I loved the interview Rut did with AJ. No doubt about it, AJ is bringing sexyback.

I can't wait for Trackside tonight. It's gonna be wild and crazy, I can feel it.

Good luck in Qualifying TRB.

this sucks...I really hope they can make this race...and i find it unfair how other teams are getting different drivers, it shows how much confidence they have...

The ringers are not going to make the difference today. TRD has 2 very compitent road course drivers so they don not need a ringer.
