Here's an interesting "Steel Chariots" observance from Kevin Smith:

The Hardee's car is a Ford. Did you notice that the driver, D.J. Tucker was driving around in a Chevy Z 71? I bet you wouldn't see that anywhere else but the movies!

Thanks, Kevin. ========== Word in Charlotte is that Fox has decided NOT to pursue production of the first 13 episodes of Steel Chariots. (Chaz Hinkle) ========== Per Source: CHAMP (Charles Head's American Motorsports Program; nationally syndicated radio show) and Jim Carson

Patty Moise will be driving the full Busch Grand National schedule in 1998. She will be in a Ford sponsored by Rhodes Furniture and owned by Michael Waltrip.

Michael Waltrip will still run a few BGN races just like this year. ========== Lake Speed and the #9 Melling Ford will supposedly have the Cartoon Network on the car for Phoenix and Atlanta (Jayski) ========== Brett Bodine had purple colors during qualifying but did not have any sponsor on the car (Jayski) ========== RPM2Nite reports that Mark Martin and crew chief Jimmy Fennig would move from his Liberty NC shop to the Roush Shop in Mooresville, NC where Jeff Burton is housed after the season. QUOTE."Leaving #26 Cheerio's Sponsored Ford of Johnny Benson to team up with Ted Musgrave for the 98 season" (Jayski) ========== Jayski also hears that Darrell Waltrip has the #26 for his second team in 1998, still looking for sponsorship ==========
