here are a few tidbits from nascar land to chew over as we get ready for the countdown to the new season

Inside Dish: Chief engineer leaves DEI

By Lee Spencer - SportingNews


Chief engineer Chad Walters is the latest to defect from Dale Earnhardt Inc. Walters, who worked with former Hendrick Motorsports crew chief Gary DeHart on Terry Labonte's No. 5, will bring his expertise back to Hendrick and the No. 5, which will be driven by Kyle Busch. ...

Teams aren't thrilled with the new 4-and-10 rule for testing. The four refers to the driver, crew chief, car chief and owner, and 10 is the number of additional workers allowed to attend a test. In the past, teams took a variety of specialists, such as the lead engineer, engine builder or technical director, to gather data at tests. NASCAR has told teams that the change will allow them to save money, but there are other considerations. Some organizations had used tests to reward sponsors and court potential sponsors, but that won't be possible now. ...

NASCAR is close to completing plans for the 2005 provisional system. Eliminating provisionals is likely; the top 35 teams in points will compete for the top 35 spots, and the final eight spots will be decided by qualifying times. ...


Ed Young, who was the shop foreman for Matt Kenseth's No. 17 team, has left Roush Racing for Joe Gibbs Racing. Justin Nottestad, who also is Kenseth's front tire changer, will take over Young's duties. ...

Former Hutchens supporters Rusty Wallace and Tony Stewart must switch to the HANS head and neck restraint device -- the only apparatus approved for 2005. After an 18-month evaluation with a panel of safety experts from the automotive industry, NASCAR decided the Hutchens device fell short of its safety requirements. NASCAR also now will require all drivers to wear full-face rather than open-face helmets.

ProudAmerican i guess as he won it last time. But i got a sneaky feeling for Aegis Fang. From stuff i have read on here he seems to know Nascar.

I would have said Toejam but from reading the previous Fantasy Nascar thread, he seems to have bad luck and has a dreaded curse hanging over him. I thinks its called the Curse of the Toejammer!

I'd have to say Aegis Fang. Remember this n00b to the boards is a NASCAR fan.

it is looking to be a great fantay season....the game has not been posted but i am checking and will get a league going as soon as it is up and running....

the curse of toejam involves many different factors, they include cars running out of gas, hitting the wall while leading, tire changers dropping lug nuts....any one of these or a combination of the above events will add to the lore of the "curse of toejam"

Ah the dreaded curse, well maybe you might have dropped it for the upcomming season Tj.

It did start to rub off on me as we spent so much time in that thread last season.

i think i had the curse of the Toejam for a couple weeks last year. i think it was 5 weeks in a row all my drivers crashed, ran out of gas, didn't start the race, or i forgot to change them and i was over my limit of uses. but none of that this year, i want the dang trophy. isn't fantasy baseball coming up in a couple months too? i think pitchers and catchers report sometime in mid February. so many fantasy leagues + so much research = zero sleep for team Aegisfang. but it's so much fun.
