Kyle Busch Led NASCAR Drivers in Securing TV Expo

Some facts for all the haters and lovers as well from Jayski:

Kyle Busch Led NASCAR Drivers in Securing TV Exposure for Sponsors:
#18-Kyle Busch's memorable 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series campaign led to $68 million of television exposure for his sponsors, a figure higher than any other driver managed to generate this past season, and nearly $1.7 million more than Series Champion Tony Stewart. According to research conducted by Joyce Julius & Associates, Inc. — which has monitored every NASCAR race telecast over the last 27 seasons — Busch's sponsors as a group appeared for 27 hours, 23 minutes, 10 seconds (27:23:10) during live and replayed telecasts of the season's 36 points races. When also factoring in verbal mentions (292) of Busch's sponsors, the 12th-place driver amassed more than $68.3 million of in-broadcast exposure value for his backing brands.

Alan Guftafson Caught Cheating on the #24 Car?

WOW - did this really happen, was Alan Gustafson caught cheating by NASCAR before the #24 driven by Jeff Gordon went to qualify?

After Jeff Gordon did so well in both practices on Friday at Dover and fell on his face in qualifying I texted a NASCAR official to find out what happened. Here is the breif conversation: AZMO "What the heck happened to Jeff Gordon in Qualifying?" Official " They had to make the car legal" "the offset was wrong so they had to fix it" AZMO "Dude that's funny, why would he even practice in that set up then? Man that's brain dead." Official "I don't know what Alan was thinking"

Who would be that stupid to try and sneak something by NASCAR when the #24 was fifth in points 23 back? If I'm Jeff Gordon, I don't want Alan anywhere near my race car.
