    Thats fantastic


    He's also starting next to " My carreer is ruined " spokesperson Jacques Villeneueve

    FYI

    The Nationwide series is the minor leagues of Nascar

    Also, Patrick Capentier will start # 13


    I wouldn't count out the guy with the most road racing experience in the field

    Starting in Position # 5 is Ron Fellows

    Best Regards

    It was a greatly entertaining race!!!!!!!!

    Jacques Villeneuve led for most of the race, but got passed by two cars during the final lap. He was racing on fumes, and was fuming himself when he got passed by the eventual race winner. Villeneuve finished in the third position.

    Tag had actually passed him with less than 10 laps left to go, but Jacques hadn't appreciated the way Tag had passed him earlier, and knocked him out of the leaders by what i consider a bit of a cheap-shot move. However, this is NASCAR racing, after all.

    I'll be back next year for sure!!!!!! Much more entertaining than the F1 race!!!

    Quite an understatement ! Villeneuve simply pushed Tag out of the race coming out of the turn.

    Nascar or not, it was clearly intended and he (Villeneuve) clearly deserved to be pushed himself aside by Allgaier (Tag's teammate) in the end.

    Villeneuve has a reputation for pushing people out of races, he " pushed " Patrick out of a race in June also. And many before that.
