    It's Zest for me when I go shopping this weekend.........I am so glad for everyone at Roush-Fenway for getting a NEW primary sponsor. Way to go. If I had a pickup truck. I'd spray the bed too.....

    Great show today everyone. You make us proud. And while everyone else is writing fluff stories and Busch Brothers stories, you bring us real worthwhile news.

    Way to go Moody and Angie, I bet you are both SO HAPPY to be back at the track.
