I hope this race goes the distance. Carl has a long way to go.

I'll have to listen to the end on the radio. Sucks working out of town. :x

It's ridiculous that sponsorship basically forced this to happen.

Yet, watch out for Joe Gibbs!

That sucks. :(

Oh well, my interest has been declining ever since that brand came in anyway.

But you gotta wonder ... how uninteresting/marketable does a guy have to be if a NSCS championship and 2 Daytona 500 wins can't help him hold on to a sponsor?

Which is even odder b/c supposedly Kenseth is one of most popular guys in the garage. Just, apparently, no personality at all in front of a camera.... :?

Well, would you really want that guy trying to make a commercial for you, pitching a product? Let's face it, Kenseth needs to drive the Sominex 17.

I doubt he moves much merchandise but Little E still probably has more sales than all other drivers combined so I doubt that's too much of a factor.

To your first point; exactly.

As for the second... I don't have exact numbers, but I'm sure they're out there. One gauge I glance at from time to time though is the top of the NASCAR.com store.

The numbers shift in order of top sellers. Obviously, the 88 rarely moves (I think there was about 2 days after Homestead where 14 was in front), but the next 3 are 48, 14, and 24. Kenseth doesn't show up until 11. Not a great metric really, but I think it makes a point.

Hell, Dewalt is still in NASCAR... they just opted for sponsoring an Australian road course specialist. #-o

Looks like fuel mileage may determine the outcome!

Kyle bumped the wall and broke something and the 48 pit crew sucks! (they got lucky to win the all-star challenge)
