I'm going with Jr. although Kenseth has impressed me in the cup races he has
ran. None of that rice brewed Bud for me, I drink real beer, Sam Adams!!!

Junior's the most advanced driver, but likely to have the poorest
equipment unless the Bud money brings top-line people in who gel fast.

If Roush puts real effort into the #17, Kenseth will have the best
equipment.

Blaney could compete if Davis is deep enough for two cars.

Gonna be very interesting. My bet's on the #17.

They said that, but that isn't the whole story.

A BGN team is much smaller than a WC team, plus the bodies and engines
(Fords, not Chevy like in BGN) will be coming from a different source.
Thus there will be many, many new folks involved, many in the most
crucial areas.

Just what do you think Steve Park is running?
Do you also think they are going to throw away the new chassis
they built for the races junebug ran already in cup?
You think DEI doesn't have the people already?

It's all in place now............

Oh, of course they'll use people from Park's team and their research
and development, as I suspect they have with the #8 already. But
Roush's stuff is *potentially*, as long as the #17 gets the top of the
line stuff and not the garbage that certain other Roush teams have
gotten, lots better than the #1 has shown mechanically.

That said.... who knows? And Junior is, as I said above, in my mind at
a higher level of driving ability than Kenseth, though both are darned
good.
