We've moved the home of Bench Racing with Steve and Charlie to the new OnPitRow.com site. We'll continue to post over here for awhile, but please check out the new site and change your bookmarks. Thanks.
NASCAR sometimer Scott Pruett again teamed with Cup sophomore Juan Pablo Montoya to win the Rolex 24 hours at Daytona.
What is significant is that after doing that last year they went to Mexico City and put on one of the most entertaining Busch races of the year. Pruett was steamed at Montoya for running into him at the conclusion of the race and did everything but question JPM's ancestry. But it did show us what we could expect from the former F1 star all season long. Montoya is a racer and he isn't going to back down to anyone--not even arguably the best North American road racer there is.
Lets hope 2008 has as many or more of this type of fireworks.
This week the Fast Lap asks:
1) Chip Ganassi Racing's three-peat at the 24 hours is unprecedented. Why isn't he as successful in Cup as he is in sports cars or open wheel?
2) What is more impressive -- sharing a forth of the driving duties of the Rolex 24 or doing 4 hours of restrictor plate racing solo?
3) There is quite a seasoned group of rookies along with some young hot shoes running in Cup in 2008. Who will win the ROTY?
4) DJ or Rusty in the booth?
