Nascar Sprint Cup 2008 Driver Standings





Jacques Villeneuve, Nascar Sprint 2009

Barry was quick to call RDS and clarify what JV's plans for 2009 were.

For full article, please follow link here below,

Go Jacques Go... To Nascar. Personally, I'm hoping full sponsorshipand Team announcement before Nationwide race. And, I'm hoping Jacques will not begin his long career in Nascar with any type of ownership just yet.

This is Nascar baby and I believe Mr. G and Villeneuve will do what's best this time around. :-)

Barry G corrects what RDS had published about JV's Nascar future

Jacques Villeneuve coming back strong to Nascar

20 fevrier 2008

Short and sweet?

La conference de presse aujourd'hui que Jacques Villeneuve a donne avec Barry Green au Newtown c'tait court et simple.

Du moins c'est le spin qu'on donne et j'admet que c'est bien reussit.

La grande nouvelle ce matin...

REWIND :-)

Jacques ne participera pas dans la Serie Sprint Cup 2008 pour BDR.

Jacques avec sa nouvelle equipe et son nouveau agent et ami Barry G, vont travailler fort en 2008 pour faire une bonne preparation pour sa participation en 2009.

Pour cette annee, les JVistes le verrons au Mans en Juin, cette ete a Montreal dans la course Nationwide(fort probable mais pas signe 100%), et quelques courses en Arca.

Remplacera t'il Ranger qui c'est blesse dernierement?

Quoi qu'il en soit... une nouvelle association avec une nouvelle equipe Nascar.

Heuresement le JVisme demande des fans patient et loyale.

Jacques Villeneuve ce prepare pour Sprint et une longue longue carriere en Nascar. Je rewind a l'an passe,,,

He will be a Nascar Champ and one day be an owner-driver. :-)

On te suit JV! All the way!



19 fevrier 2008

C'est demain matin au Newtown a 10:30 que Jacques Villeneuve donnera une conference de presse.

Bien sur qu'il confirmera Le Mans 2008 mais ca c'est du non-news.

J'espere qu'il confimera aussi son retour en Nascar pour faire sasaison rookie. Il manque quelques courses mais ca n'en prends que 17 participations pour le titre Rookie de l'annee. SVP JV, just do it!

Oncle Jacques(sr.), j'espere que tu recuperes vite et deja tu planifies ton retour. Pouvez vous parler au neveu et lui faire souvenir que les Villeneuves, sa lache pas jamais.






le 16 fevrier 2008 et je mange mes mots... :-(

Malgre le chaos, j'attends la perfection. Je laches pas et desire et espere toujours de voir Jacques Villeneuve regler ces affaires Nascar.

J'avais hate a l'annonce de sa prochaine participation Le Mans mais je ne voulais pas que ce soit en 2008.

Cette annee, j'aurais aime plutot que JV focus sur la Series Sprint. Qu'il accepte les choses qui ne peut changer, c'est du Nascar.

Mais, qu'il change ce qu'il peut changer, son orgeuille et humilite... Sorry bossman and I still love you just the way you are. lol

Alors les JVistes, c'est Daytona!

Bonne chance a Carl, Jeff, Montoya, Biffle, Nemecheck et Waltrip!

Bravo a Todd Bodine pour sa victoire hier dans la Series Truck. Super! Finallement! :-)


14 fevrier - St. Valentin 2008

Arghhh. Je m'attends jamais a grand choses et personellement, son amour pour moi devrait etre celebre 365 jours par annee. lol

T'aimes, t'aimes quand meme Jaco.

10 fevrier 2008

SVP, soyez pas inquiets les JVistes... On fait les qualifs a Daytona sans annoncer le sponsor. On aura ces nouvelles entre le 15 au 19. Mon intuition. :-)

Amusez vous et bonne journee de Qualifs Daytona 500!



6 fevrier 2008 AM

Il y a beaucoup d'inquietude de la part des JVistes au sujet des sponsors pour la #27 a Jacques.

JV semble vraiement pas inquiet. Il a la tete au course et c'est exactement ce qu'il doit faire. Plusieurs voitures non pas encoure de sponsors.

Aujourd'hui, a Nascar.com, il y a un article sur plusieurs voitures dans la meme situation. Depuis les annees que je regarde ces courses, c'est pas du nouveau. Sauf, cette annee on parle plutot de recession qui fait peur aux sponsors. Moi je m'inquiete pas.

Longtemps j'ai travaille dans le milieu publicite/sponsorship et les compagnies on toujours un budget pour ces projects. Cette exposition mediatique est tres importante et lucrative. Il n'y a pas de manque de compagnie/corporation qui veulent etre sponsors.

Just mon opinion mais faites la votre... manquez pas cette article. Au moins c'est consolant de savoir que ce n'est pas juste notre Jacques.

Laissons le ce concentrer sur Daytona.

Great day for my boy Carl Edwards. :-) And way to go Juan Paul!

I'm feeling much better now. Jacques Villeneuve had the 45th best time this morning in Vegas. In theory... he's good to go! :-)

It's going to be a very busy week for JV. Nascar is hard work and except for the Christmas break, there's always something for a driver to do on and off the track.

Okay, show them what you've got! :-)

Jour 2 a Vegas et je me sens beaucoup mieux. Jacques Villeneuve a le 45ieme meilleur temps ce matin a Vegas. C'est beau Jacques et BDR!

C'est une grosse semaine pour JV. On travail fort en Nascar et a part du conge des fetes, il y a toujours quelque chose a faire sur piste et hors piste.

Okay, show them what you've got! :-)



Jan. 27, 2008

Jacques will be back on track tomorrow in Vegas. It's round 2 of preseason testing and JV is ready to blow us away. :-)

Be sure to watch Nascar's preseason Thunder on Speed TV tomorrow, 7 and 11PM.

I can't help but think it must have been a rollercoaster ride for Villeneuve this past week or so... Busy with family before the Nascar season begins, a quick trip to Europe, Mamie V and Uncle J were on his mind, and of course waking up yesterday to all kinds of silly gossip about his friend Craig going back home to Europe.

His job is DONE folks. It's as simple as that. Not sure what some JV fans were expecting from Mr. Pollock but it just seemed like a given. There just isn't any room for super-agents and managers in Nascar. This spin machine has been rolling for decades and they run their own stable thank you very much!

Let's not forget, Nascar drivers don't sign salary contracts. They race for purse or in other words, their money is made with race winnings and if they are good enough, through marketing for sponsor and teams but you have to be good. Very good.

Were we expecing Craig to prepare JV's race attire? Perhaps run out to get some coffee? Setup the advertising shoot's snack table with things Jacques really loves? Come on, get real! There's not much more for CP to do now.

The dynamic of the Nascar business machine simply doesn't have a job for Craig nor did Craig expect a job in Nascar.

Nascar bent the rules in 2007 to allow Jacques to drive in last of the Chase races and believe me, it wasn't JV sitting with Mr. France. Craig pulled off what many others could not.

Thank you Craig for everything, absolutely everything.

And, Go JV Go! to Vegas Baby!

Jacques Villeneuve, Nascar Sprint 2008 Preseason First Round Testing Complete...

Jan. 16, 5PM

Had to find something JV to right about. JVisme is a way of life. lol

Last week, after first round testing, Jacques Villeneuve was 3rdin cumulative single-speed. Yes!!

Yesterday, when testing was complete, JV remains 11th overall single-speed.

And, patience is a virtue and if Jacques is doing his best to not spill the beans, I'll try my best too... lol

Had been hoping to have news at end of testing today. However, I believe, out of respect to Nascar, BDR and the companies vying for sponsorship on the #27... the news is good but it won't be announced until month's end.

Unless there's a leak, a big drop of something from someone...

Tune in, we're on a mission here. :-)

And, thanks for your support of this Web site. Now, go! Some quality offline time is important too and JV has been offline. lol

Off to Vegas Baby!

Well day 2 of second round of preseason testing at Daytona went very well and so far, Jacques Villeneuve is 11th!!

Fantastic cummulative speed for JV and his Team mate Blaney. BDRis looking good but mostly, way to go Toyota! :-)

First Round Preseason Testing Done and JV is 11th!

Montreal Auto Show Toyota/Camry News Jacques Villeneuve News Feed

*Big Yawwwwwwnnnnn*

Good Morning JV! Welcome home and enjoy the family time.

Jan 10, 2008

With first round of Preseason testing at Daytona over, I'm already so satisfied with JV's performance this week. Impressive.

And, having seen him and heard things, I know there are NO sponsorship worries. The delay in announcement has nothing to do with lack of interest or agreement. There's alot of business and loose ends but that's about it.

There will be news and it will be good.

I believe Jacques when he says he's in Nascar for a long time.

Having never been a big fan of the local French media, I just don't read the ignorant blah blah. Especially from some person who's never known much about Nascar until recently. Hey! Some have compared Carpentier's entry into Nascar just as big of news as JV's participation.

Don't get me wrong, I will support and be proud of any great Quebec/Canadian racer. A few flying frenchman in Nascar will help the young hopefuls working their way up. Stock is very big in Quebec and there are many great young drivers.

As I sip my Clearly Canadian strawberry beverage, I am patient and I'd rather talk about his racing performance right now because when the news is annnounced... It will be a Thunder heard around the world. lol

Be sure to visit Nascar.com and in Video area, select "Villeneuve on and off the tracks". Great video and proves Nascar is paying attention to him and the fans he brings. :-)

Bonne journee Jacques a Daytona!

5PM Jan 8, Day 2 Afternoon Session

JV IS 21st, backing off just a bit. Knowing him, there's just a little something that Slugger needs to tweak. That's the beauty of Jacques' driving talent, he knows how to drive and very importantly, he knows what the car should be doing and helpengineers and mechanics work it out.

A dying breed. mmmmmmmmm.... :-)

It's been an exciting 2 days. Can't imagine a whole year of this!

Nascar baby!

Today's the 9th and JV may be back home tonight, to relax, play with the children and of course his wife. ;-)

1PM Jan 8, Day 2 Morning Session

Jacques Villeneuve has second best time behind champ Jimmie Johnson. Way to go JV!

13h00 8 janvier, Jour 2 essaies

Jacques Villeneuve a le deuxieme meilleur temps ce matin. Il n'y a que le champ Jimmie Johnson qui a fait mieux.

A plus tard les JVistes!

6AM, Jan 8, 2008, Day 1 of preseason testing at Daytona goes very well for Jacques Villeneuve.

Bravo JV!

And, during his interviews, he seemed calm and fulfilled by a good hard days work. :-)

I'm so glad to see he's gained a few pounds. Nascar drivers need some fat on their bones at the beginning of the season if they want to make it through weeks of testing and qualifying. It really does take alot out of them, well maybe not Jacques. lol

His best time in the morning yesterday Jan. 7, was 4th with only 2 drivers with better times(J Johnson, C Mears).

The afternoon session his best time was 6th. Very very well done JV!

Nascar is a long season and there's still so much work ahead but what a great start. The best is yet to come...




Jan. 6, 2008 His Thunder will be heard around the World...

Have a great time this week Jacques Villeneuve, litterally. lol

I have a good feeling and a fly on the wall told me, JV was still relaxing at home yesterday.

That's impressive and very reassuring for JVistes. If he's in such a 'good place', he'll be at the top of his game this week. I don't think any of us fans will need to work on our patience or frustration with JV in Nascar.

He's got the maturity, personal life fulfillment, good business sense and most of all, he's the best race car driver in the World.

Time to Sprint Baby!

6 janvier, 2008 Le Tonnerre qu'on entendra a travers le Monde...

Du bon temps pour toi Jacques Villeneuve, literalement. :-)

J'ai un bon feeling et un petit doigt m'a dit que JV semblait tres calme et relaxe hier, encore chez lui a Westmount.

C'est impressionant et tres rassurant pour les JVistes. Il semble etre dans une bonne place et il sera a son mieux. Je ne crois pas que nous les fans auront besoin de travailler sur notre patience ou frustration avec JV en Nascar.

Il est mature, comble, a un bon sense d'affaires et surtout, il est le meilleur courseur automobile due Monde.

C'est le temps de courir!




January 1, 2008 and already there is confirmation that Jacques Villeneuve Sprint 2008 rookie season officially start Jan 7.

He'll be among the first group of drivers pre-testing Jan 7-9. Along with his pal JPM, the Busch brothers, and other rookies and veterans. It will give him a chance to dominate and...

When Jimmie, Jeff, Carl get their turn later, Jacques will be in the best seat of the house, watching how the champs do it, just one last time. :-)

So, if you don't have Cable Speed TV yet, you still have time. Speed TV starts televising Nascar Jan. 7.

Can you believe it!
