Attention, Kurt Busch: SpeedTV says Uncle Sam wants you (or at least your 2007 points).
With Sam Hornish having trouble qualifying for Cup races - he has missed all six he has attempted this year - Penske Racing may consider making a points swap to get Hornish into races in 2008.By the sound of this the options are exclusively related to the N-Word, no matter how long this embarrassing DNQ festival lingers. In the meantime I would humbly suggest that instead of “06” Sam’s car number be “0-4-6”. Just throwing that out there.
With Kurt Busch having won the 2004 Nextel Cup championship, Penske could transfer the points earned by Busch's No. 2 team to Hornish, which would lock him into the top 35 for the first five races of next season. Busch would get into those races as the most recent past champion if he failed to qualify on speed.
NASCAR officials confirmed that a move would be allowed.
"There are all sorts of discussions, and I see guys buying teams and different things," team owner Roger Penske said. "We're right now trying to focus on getting him in a race. We'll look at our options once we get closer to the end of the season."
Meanwhile Sam has already qualified for one event later this year – as Grand Marshall of the Toledo Downtown Holiday Parade. So congratulations to Sam on leading a parade, where his increased road racing skills can be put to proper use.
