He was part owner of a team at one time, I'm not sure a what level. But if you wiki nascar owners you will see his name.

He is from Lousiana, so it was probably a swamp buggy!

from Wiki article about Dale Jarrett:

"He also retired from the Busch Series to become a part-time owner, partnering with NFL quarterback Brett Favre to field the #11 Rayovac Ford for his son Jason, Yates teammate Kenny Irwin, Jr., and Steve Grissom."

Too bad DJ is retiring this year as well, I'm going to have to go buy all new gear this year. My wife will not be happy, but what can I do.

Carl Edwards gear would be a good thing to look at, IMHO.

No, I am doing no wagon jumping, 24 and 48 are still square in my wheelhouse. 88 is making inroads and 20 is on the way out.

Okay, thanks for correcting me. This makes it more likely to be a souped up horse and buggy, not a swamp buggy.

From Wikipedia:

In 2001, Bradshaw entered the world of NASCAR by joining with HighLine Performance Group racing team to form FitzBradshaw Racing. He also is the spokesman for Jani-King international, Inc.

At the NASCAR 2001 Speedweeks, Bradshaw did a variety of on air trackside spoofs for FOX who was covering the Speedweeks and that year's first race, the Daytona 500. On the night of February 17, 2001, the night before the race, Bradshaw and Dale Earnhardt Sr. did a spoof for FOX in which Earnhardt raced around Daytona International Speedway in a pace car with Bradshaw as a passenger, going at max 150 mph, scaring Bradshaw in a laughing matter. The spoof finished with Earnhardt doing burnouts on pit road, and the two jumping on top of the car, as if they had won. Little did either know that it would be Earnhardt's last night, as the next day on February 18, 2001, Dale Earnhardt Sr. would be killed in a last lap crash of the Daytona 500.

Too bad Bradshaw did not get to ride along during the race!

Oops, my blue and silver blood is showing through.

oh man, I just beginning to like you and then to find out your Gorden/Johnson fan, too bad. I do like Casey Mears and hope he has a good showing this year. I got see him at his hauler when he was with Chip Ganassi. So not all Hendrick drivers are bad, in fact they are just too Damn good.

You could forgo watching NASCAR for the sheer adrenaline rush of watching CD's spin as they play.
