nice trivia questions, I only knew a few. It was on our news about the 400,000 people driving on Interstate 74 to get to the race. (the cops will be out they said) Lets hope Brian can be in front a lot more this race and be in Victory Lane! It's time for the BULLS to take the race by the horns!
Good Luck to Brian and AJ this weekend! :)

We're all kind of been wondering how did the third round of the hptour go for BV because the hptour website hasn't given any updates from the Chicago outing yet. Just Curious to know. Thanks

The #83 should be the darkhorse this weekend. They're capable of pulling of a win. I recall the #83 being invited to the Goodyear tire test at Indy a few months ago. Hopefully that's gives the Red Bull cars an edge on all the others.

I was expecting the first half of the year review video yesterday, not the pitcrew video but oh well, they're late as usual, lol.

Champions win at Indy. Go back and look at the list of winners here. Winning here would be HUGE. Good luck both teams this weekend.

Doesn't mean it's not possible. BV is a champion and hopefully this weekend he can remind everyone of that.

Not saying anything like what you read. I said champions win at Indy- no reason AJ or BV can't do the same. Adding your name to that list would be huge. No Michael Waltrip's on that list!

I think BV finished 3rd here in 2005.

Nascar with yet another BS ruling! If you can't run with the big dogs-stay on the porch! Tough one for the Nationwide Toy teams.

I agree. It's a shame that NASCAR needs to take away power from Toyota so the other manufacturers don't need to invest more money for their engine program to catch up. Pathetic, just pathetic.

That Nationwide ruling is a load of crap. Toyota came in to NASCAR playing by THEIR rules, building a push-rod engine for the first time since 1995 (the last production Toyota to have that kind of engine in it was the '95 Land Cruiser and you still won't find it in ANY Toyota) just so WE could play by THEIR rules and now they pull that crap. GIVE ME A BREAK!!! Oh, by the way, NASCAR did this to Toyota in the trucks last year, too, making them get rid of a engine part that was within the rules, but just made the trucks go faster! I'm glad I found out about this after my dad went out of town - I would never hear the end of it from him about how much crap that is. (My dad works for Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A. in an office, not a dealership, so this kinda hits a very big nerve.)
