    There were some shouts around the office on Saturday night that the whole thing was rigged for Junior to win, but I don't think anyone was taking themselves too seriously when they said it.

    I always thought the 2001 Pepsi 400 was rigged.

    Thanks for stopping by, Matt.

    (Always wanted to say that.)

    What does Bob (Spark Plug) Holly think of this? He's the guy I'd go to.

    What the hell does Amy Winehouse have to do with NASCAR's competitive balance?

    With her performance at the Grammy's last night, it's a timely analogy.

    That might be the first time balance and Amy Winehouse have been used in the same sentence. ;)

    Considering the fact that NASCAR drivers Juan Pablo Montoya and Reed Sorenson were slated to participate in a match to be shown on Total Nonstop Action Wrestling's Impact show, which is based in Orlando and shown on Spike TV every Thursday, NASCAR definitely does have a pro wrestling connection.

    Apparently what will happen is that Sorenson will manage pro wrestler Chris Sabin, while Montoya will manage pro wrestler Homicide, in a three-way with another pro wrestler Jimmy Rave. NASCAR's Hermie Sadler and Jimmy Spencer will commentate.

    No surprise to see Jimmy Spencer's name in this thread.

    Spencer is one of those who has said racing, especially the aforementioned Pepsi 400, may be fixed.

    "I knew going in the No. 8 car was going to win this race. Something was fictitious."
    -- Mr. Excitement, after the Pepsi 400, July 8, 2001.

    "Mr. Excitement" also used Kurt Busch's face as a punching bag and was suspended for a week by NASCAR.

    Hmm, if what they say is true about Friday night in the NASCAR trailer, should Tony Stewart be worried?

    Different circumstances.

    By the way, in no way was I giving credence to Spencer's comments, just repeating them.
