NASCAR should be a much different series next year. Names like Montoya and Toyota are sure to shake things up and the good old boys are gonna whine about them furrin guys takin’ all the wins. There have been some other names trolling the paddock for a ride too. Paul Tracy hasn’t been able to get into a seat, and Jacques Villeneuve was said to be in talks with Roush Racing to put a ride together. While PT is fooling around with brewskis and golf carts, the scruffy Jacques has been busy putting together a team.
Villeneuve and former manager Craig Pollack are said to be sinking up to 100 million dollars of JV’s money into building their own NASCAR team, which will be assembled by the Roush Racing folks. Talk about a heck of an arrive and drive program! There has been no word if it will be a one or two car team, or who the second driver might be if there is one. One can assume that JV will take time out of his singing career to tackle roundy rounds.
