The Color Purple

Last weekend in Richmond, AJ debuted his new Memorex Busch firesuit for Chip Ganassi Racing. The suit did not actually arrive at the track until Friday afternoon - just a few hours before the Busch race. Having not been able to wash (or fade) it yet, let's just say it was bright purple. His crew guys from the No. 42 had their fun with AJ saying he looked like a superhero, a power ranger, Barney, etc - he definately heard it all! As you can see from the photo, Brian made a point to come "admire" AJ's new suit first-hand during driver intros. AJ finished the Richmond Busch race in the 14th spot, having ran most of the race in the top 10 before being spun by the No. 03 at the very end. We think purple is starting to agree with you AJ!

I like the color - he looks good in the suit. Based on how he ran in the race I think purple agrees with him too!!

Any news on BV racing the #10 Bush car? The Blaney message board says that Dave will be in #10 at Dover and also at Kansas the following week. Beyond that it is still up in the air. Nothing against Dave, but I really hope they are wrong!

Purple looks good on you AJ!

I saw that suit in person. The only thing it lacks is a dimmer switch!

I'm lovin' the purple suit! It looks really good on AJ. Sorry Lynne, just had to throw that out there. Hopefully the boys learned a lot at Dega testing. This afternoon's session was cut short due to rain.

Brian is suppose to be in the car again at Lowe's Motor Speedway in October. Other than that, it's still up in the air. Hopefully that helps you with your question.

3 more days until we are at NHIS. Good luck boys! WE BELIEVE!

Aww, thanks for posting Lynne. I was hoping we'd see you back here soon. Glad I could get you out of lurking! It's always a delight when I see you on here.

I'm a pink girl, myself. September 12th is my birthday and my best friend got me a pink princess tiara.

Good luck at NHIS this weekend. Tell AJ we are cheering loud for him!
