    I still think the only way it gets a Cup date is if Bruton moves one of New Hampshire's dates there.

    Sweet Christ. Just reading "next month's Daytona 500" makes me want to puke. NASCAR: GET AN OFFSEASON!

    They have an offseason.

    Well, they do this year anyway.

    ESPN.com's David Newton has learned that Elliott Sadler is probably going to drive the 19 Dodge this season, which fact he promptly hid inside the story on the Petty-Gillett Evernham merger.

    From a Yahoo! cuts thread on the journalism board:

    Yikes.

    With all of these mergers, and the rising costs it takes to be competitive, is there going to be a point soon where Sprint Cup and Nationwide races can't gather the traditional 43 starters for every event?

    The start-and-park money in Sprint Cup is enough that there should usually be field-fillers to get to 43. Nationwide, maybe not. I think we'll find out right away -- Daytona will have plenty of cars, but will everyone head for California the next week?

    Rephrasing to be kinder: I think it's completely unfair how those two are classified. Margolis is a big loss. One of the best guys in the garage.
