Back to Roushland- Fantasy Insight Kansas

Dennis Michelsen · Saturday October 8, 2005


Back to Roushland- Fantasy Insight Kansas

The Restrictor Plate blues bit Roush Racing worse than anyone else last
week! This week we return to the type of track that enabled Jack Roush
to get all five of his teams in the Chase for the Championship. Let
those horses whine without being strangled of oxygen and the best cars
will roar to the front. More often this season that has meant a charge
of the Roush cars to the lead. This week should be no exception!

Ok You sound like a Roush fan. What do you think of Jack’s idea of putting an unprven driver such as Todd Kluever in a car as famous as the number 6. yes i know Mark Martin was a no name at one time but he made the 6 car what it is today and it would be stupid to put a driver in that car not worthy of its greatness.

Is there really anyone worthy of its greatness? He is Mark Martin. If Roush were to search for someone who is perfect to fill the seat, the seat may remain vacant for many years or Mark would never get to retire. I personally think Todd Kluever has a lot of talent and what better to boost someone’s confidence than to put them in the No. 6.
