Can't wait to see what Kyle Larson can do in a ring.
KL has Piquet's crew from last year, including Trent Owens.

UPDATE 1 - arrest warrants issued: Stolen vehicles siezed from Harmon's garage
Arrest warrants have been issued for a NASCAR driver, and his business associate, after investigators say they stole at least seven vehicles from a competitor. According to the Rowan County Sheriff's Office, warrants were issued for driver Mike Harmon and business associate David Novak. Each man is wanted on breaking and entering and larceny after breaking and entering. WBTV was there as deputies recovered two cars and five trucks from Harmon's two garages in late May. Deputies say Harmon stole the cars from racer Jennifer Jo Cobb at the end of last year. The vehicles were seized from Harmon's shop in Mooresville, and from a storage facility in Catawba County, officials told WBTV. Harmon was arrested in mid-May in a separate incident, also involving Cobb. Authorities say Harmon broke into Cobb's Mooresville headquarters, and stole her hauler to transport cars and trucks. Harmon and Novak had not been arrested as of Monday afternoon. At last check, Cobb's hauler was still missing.(WBTV)(6-17-2013)

UPDATE 2: Mike Harmon turned himself in to Cleveland County authorities Monday around 5 p.m. He then posted a $10,000 bond, for both charges combined. Novak had not been arrested as of Monday afternoon.(WBTV)(6-17-2013)

That's quite a mythology. :confused:

Kurt Busch raced for Phoenix Racing - lead Sonoma - and managed to reborn his career from the ashes.

Let's see if JV can do it too.  ;)

I'm not really a fan. I just like seeing him punch stuff and generally lose his shit.
Maybe we can get him in the booth...

What are the odds of Tasmanians winning at both Sonoma and Road America?

If Owen Kelly has a decnt car I think he is in with a chance of victory.
Marcos isn't having a stellar season, but usually turns it on for road courses. Though he hasn't been as successful at Sonoma as he has at Watkins Glen.

At Talladega and a Brickyard race, I believe.

Edit: Apparently, he started a Phoenix race and DNQ for the 2008 Daytona 500 as well.

His Dega race was sublime..
Great qualy, dropped to the back out of 'Respeck' then staved off all the Big Ones to get a top 12 finish.
Bumper and I watched it in the VIP room at the Three Kings in West Kensington!!!
Those were the days boy...

Having trouble deciding between a NASCAR race on a Road Course with ringers, vs another Indy oval race.

Boys? Do we need to evaluate greenman's membership here?

I'm torn as to what I set the DVR for. Seeing JV racing on a road course is always fun. But IRL is fun too.

Not sure, but I heard something about these cars still carrying a lot of stuff from the Gen5.
And on a road course I think the issue will be more on the balance side so they may carry over something from last year...

Confirmed.
I will be cheering him on, despite the fact he's a Canadian named Andrew. Hope he finishes well.
