  1. I think Bruno is driving the 84...I thought I saw that on the tracker either on SPEED or VS.

    Either way, its a good thing Bruno is at the 500. Buddy Rice driving for Panther is also a good thing, should be full-time to help out JR.

    SSM running or involved in four cars is pretty interesting. He came into 2011 running Townsend and now he owns Tagliani's team and is running the Howard and Tung cars. Big expansion, just in time for a new car.

  2. i think that tony stewart will race in the indy 500 because he is the car owner of his nascar cup team so he can put his foot down when it comes to the 500 this year. he did say that he has the bug again for this place.

  3. I think Rob Jones and Mike Senica are going to make attempts as well. This should be a good 500!
