According to Jennie Watson, "John Andretti is going to be behind the wheel of the Hendrick owned #50 during the Bud Shoot Out in place of Ricky Craven..Richard Petty gave him his permission to drive the #50. No word exactly why Ricky's not driviing...."

Bill S. suggests that the unknown #59 car testing at Daytona is Mark Gibson, from the ARCA ranks. Makes sense, since the ARCA cars run the same speedways as Cup does in most cases, and Mark has tried to get into some of the speedway Cup races in the past.
