Air Gordons

Nike is name that you see almost everywhere and with the popularity of NASCAR you can be that they would like to be there as well. Dale Earnhardt has been trying for a while to land Nike as a sponsor but to this point has not been able to. Nike seems to be leaning toward someone like Jeff Gordon. The image that he has seems to suit Nike, young and successful. Nike has reportedly been looking into sponsoring a team and would be willing to pay upwards of 8 million to do so. The sponsorship for Dr. J is not being considered by Nike. Dr. J apparently had a sponsorship with converse throughout his carreer.

Bullet proof Bodies

NASCAR is looking at Kevlar backed fiberglass panels for NASCAR Winston Cup Bodies. This after the hood incident at Daytona. Some owners are in favor of the measure because of the cost benefits that it has, other favor it because it would elimate some advantages that larger teams have in the wind tunnel test. The main question raised is, "Can NASCAR Police this part?".

Silly Seaon Notes

Morgan Shephard could replace Bobby Hillin in the Jasper Engine Ford. All this is pending Robert Pressley not taking the job. If Shephard accepts then Pressley could go to the Shephard Car.

Robby Gordon skiing?

Source say that Robby Gordon has been skiing since his incident in the Indy 500. The burns he substained were supposed to have kept him out of Dover and Pocono. The rumor is that the injuries are not as extensive as expected and he will return to his Indy team for the Texas race and not return to Winston Cup. Rumored to replace him are Elliot Sadler (Busch) or Mike Bliss (Truck).
