Frontstretch Top Ten · Jeff Meyer · Tuesday May 8, 2007


10. RYR and DEI become RYDER.

9. Rumor leaks out that the only reason for the merger is to ensure that the No.‘s 38 and 88 won't be pelted with beer cans, just in case one of them win in the future.

8. Due to “crossover advertising,” the Peanut M&M guys on the No. 38 are now shown enjoying a Bud.

7. In his rush to taste the sweet nectar of team ownership, Dale Jr doesn’t have Kelley read the contract to him and ends up selling his share for fifty-one cents.

6. No. 24 now gets pelted with beer AND candy.

5. Red M&M’s make a HUGE comeback.

4. Robert Yates ends up in court fighting Teresa for controlling interest of the RY side of the name.

3. Speculation arises that Roger Penske may join the merger to form Penske-RYDER.

2. Shop workers accidentally switch the Ford and Chevy decals on the race cars. Luckily, no one can tell the difference.

1. Even the newly created "Chord" still beats the Toyotas.

Well, I have to agree with 1 thing you said, unfortunately you could swap the decals and no one would notice. Heh, how about putting an “EDSEL” decal on it! Let’s get some more brands out on the track.
