Green flag 2008

Almost forgot about it, but the 2008 racing season kicks off (within minutes) with the start of the Rolex 24 of Daytona. Pretty stacked field of sports car regulars and racers from other disciplines this year, and I'll probably be pulling for the Alex Job Racing Porsche Crawford with Patrick Long, Andy Wallace and Bill Auberlen among the drivers. Be cool of my IRL guy, Dan Wheldon, could win in the second Ganassi Lexus Riley car with Scott Dixon too. Man, the SAMAX Pontiac Riley has some big time drivers with former Porsche regulars Mike Rockenfeller and Lucas Luhr, now driving for Audi, as well as Audi's Allan McNish. Good to see the Brumos Porsches both running the classic colors. Would be cool to see them in the mix too, and since they're now running Riley chassis, they could be.

Should be a good race.
