    That is a VERY GOOD race car!I saw Nokie Fornoro drive the wheels off that thing in 2005 at Cayuga.He finished top 3 at Delaware in 2006.I guess Nokie's decided to throttle it back,as it were.Soule's cars are always top notch and Santos is a very good young driver.

    Thanks to Tony,he's another one that'll probably get away.

      From the post, above: "Thanks to Tony,he's another one that'll probably get away."

      I would not put ALL the blame on Tony. The owners had a lot to say about that. How about this, which I found in the "Nostalgia" section of why Jeff Gordon went south:

      "Short story long, just before Cleveland CART race, we asked Jeff if he wanted to tag along with us to the race. We were staying at a friend’s house in Cleveland Heights. Jeff was dressed in his best polo shirt and chinos. He had prepared a one page bio. I took him around and introduced him to all of the team owners in CART and INDY Lights. Those that would give him a minute of their time, only wanted to know how much money he could bring. John Andretti was driving the Pennzoil car for Jim Hall. I remember John trying to get Jim to take a minute to talk to Jeff, but he could have cared less. Don't think Carl Hass even said Hello to him. Foyt was the only one that spent any amount of time talking with him. Remember the drive home from Cleveland. It was just Jeff, David and I. Jeff was pretty dejected. Thought teams might actually want to hire him because he had talent. Said Foyt told him" get the hell away from these a**holes and go NASCAR racing. They actually want a driver not a check."

      I imagine this still is true, today?

              A truly sad state of affairs when someone as talented as Bobby Santos III can't get a ride because of the almighty dollar.

                It killed formula/indycar and it will kill NASCAR, eventually.
                Thankfully I'll be dead and buried by then but those of you remaining have my permission to conduct a 'told ya so' wake in my honor at the time it happens

                      From what I understand, it's the same reason Tim McCreadie is on the outside looking in at the RCR no. 21.

                        That is correct.

                            Speaking of a sad state of affairs, I had this in my column, today:

                            "Scary: Looking at the entry list, I find that there are eleven drivers all with the same sponsor – TBA.

                            They are: # 4 Robert Richardson, # 21 Stephen Leicht, # 28 Brian Keselowski, # 36 Kenny Wallace (to another car?), # 37 Brad Baker, # 52 Derrike Cope, # 55 Brad Teague, # 61 Kevin Lepage, # 90 Johnny Chapman, # 91 Larry Gunzelman and # 95 Willie Allen.

                            James Finch is listed as the car owner for the # 4. Richard Childress is listed as the # 21 car owner. Mimi Fitz is listed as the owner for the # 36 (rumors they’re all done?). Jimmy Means is listed as the car owner for # 51 & # 55. These names are somewhat familiar, and we have to wonder, how long can they, and/or the other teams be able, financially, to continue on in the Nationwide Series – especially when there is the invasion from Cup drivers?"
