OK, who brought the Ethanol? Let's fire up these Hondas!

    Is it just me, or does Darren Manning look like Dana Carvey?

    Wouldn't be prudent, at this juncture, to comment on Manning. Between the hair & the shoes that Manning has going it almost makes me ignore that Scott Sharp looks like a bottle of Brut cologne.

    Where to begin...

    First, this looks like the "No Marty Roth's" Fan Club since he's not in the shot. I'm going to guess he was stuffed in a trash can by the Vision boys before the shot.

    Second, nice job by the Team Penske guys to cross their arms - right across where it used to read "Marlboro" or "Marlboro Team Penske" on their firesuits. I'm going to guess that was intentional.

    And, finally, some not important things, like how'd Marco get stuck between the two female drivers?

    Well, if we’re going to comment on the Class of 2007 photo...

    • Is that Quattro and Mr. Judd on the left or Sawyer and Jack from “Lost”?

    • The hat, shades and unmarked make me think Buddy Rice is a mole for Champ Car.

    • RLR driver Jeff Simmons or David Schwimmer?

    • Well Done clearly has the same hairstylist as David Beckham.

    • Kanaan looks like Vin Diesel...kneeling.

    • Sheckter is posing for Nomex Illustrated, as well he should since his suit has a definitive slimming effect.

    • I’m worried that Danica is actually shrinking.

    • Two words: Officer Sharp

    • Vitor looks like he’s protecting against a penalty shot, and I can’t help but wonder if Delphi didn’t just hand him Officer Sharp’s old firesuit from the last few years.

    • Do you think Kosuke is more troubled that Mutoh has looked so good or that he has the most ridiculous looking outfit of everyone?

    • And lastly, it appears Dana Carvey has a shoe contract with Puma. What’s with those white things?

    I think it's a part of Danica's Motorola deal - she's actually going to morph into a RAZR by the end of the deal.

    They'll have some funny ads her last season where Tony uses her as "theft deterrent" against Dario. It'll be huge.

    When Danica goes out at night, she may fear owls. I think she is actually shrinking. Officer Sharp. LOL. Only need the mirror shades to complete the look. I initially thought Rice was Marty Roth. Looks like a guy going into a porn shop who is afraid he might meet someone from his church.
