This appears much stronger and more formidable than the union that surfaced, albeit shortly, in the late 60's.  I think it also shows there is dissatisfaction with little france.

IF, Carl Edwards leaves Roush I could see him going to Penske with Ford's blessing.  He is a good spokesperson for Ford and I am sure Ford would want to keep him driving a blue oval.  If Penske is winning he will be able to afford and attract a sponsor for a third car.  If Roush continues losing he may not be able to keep the sponsors.  And Edwards could probably take his sponsors with him.

The New Hampshire win is Ford's fourth straight, marking the first time Ford has won four consecutive Cup Series races since 2001.

I don't know if Carl, BK and Joey would be a great team.  BK and Joey are already close and Carl would have to apologize for intentionally flipping BK at 190 mph at Atlanta a few years ago.

I think BK and Carl are well past that issue, however I'd rather not see Carl go to Penske either.  Two's company....

So, there were four races at Indy this weekend...and Chevy won them all.  Something fishy about GM and Indy.  When you go there, all the track cars and pace cars have been Chevy only for years.  Only Chevy is allowed to have a "manufacturers area" inside the track.  I decided last year that I would not go this year because of this.  Glad I didn't pay all the money and spend all the time to see the four wins.  I didn't watch any of the races either, as I knew this would happen.

 

Edit - oh yeah, bye bye Edwards...don't let the door....

Somthin smells in the hen house!  I agree.  GM owns Indy .All those damn Camaro pace cars AHAHAH!  As long as BOYOTA stays out I will deal with it.   Good for Gordon.  5 wins is impressive.  I still don't understand why he never got in a open wheel car and gave the Indy 500 a shot.  If Kurt B. can do it, so can he.  Hendrick just has to throw some cash on the table and build a team just for this race. There is no one quicker on getting around that track.

Hey, if your Jeff Gordon, overloaded with fame and fortune, plus you have a bad back - why bother w/ IndyCar? Too much risk for too little relative reward.

Having said that, I do wish we had more drivers like Montoya who race in IndyCar, NASCAR and IMSA and they could more freely choose one or the other when they want to.
