Patrick Carpentier in Sonoma for the Sprint Cup Race June 21, 2009

Although I've never been a Patrick Carpentier #1 race fan, I do like the guy alot.

Love his spirit, his heart, his humour, and his work ethics. Hmmm, maybe JV can hang around with Pat a weekend or 2. Then again, Jacques seems distracted by temptations. As mentioned earlier on another page(lol), never tempt a desperate man.

Back to Nascar and Pat's participation...

Go Pat Go! Have a great race and please give us something to watch. Sonoma should be easier for you than the last race, or at least that is my wish.

It's Sonoma Baby. That's Nascar!

Best of luck to my man Juan Paul. :-)

Have a good one JVistes!


Earlier this week, Nascar Press Release:

Go Canadians!

Fellows, Carpentier, Said Are Looking For Chance To Shine On Infineon Road Circuit

Ron Fellows came closest of the road course “specialists” to win a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race in recent years, taking back-to-back second-place finishes at Watkins Glen International in 1999 and 2004. He also qualified on the outside of the front row for the 1998 race at The Glen, in addition to winning four races in the NASCAR Nationwide Series (three at Watkins Glen and one at Montreal) and two in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at the New York circuit.

This weekend, Fellows will drive Phoenix Racing’s No. 09 Miccosukee Indian Gaming and Resorts Chevrolet for the first of two races this season.

“It’s going to be interesting,” Fellows said. “We’ve got a Hendrick (Motorsports) Motor, and we’ll find out about the chassis. I like Infineon, I had one of my best chances for my first Cup win there back when I drove for DEI (Dale Earnhardt, Inc.).”

Canadian veteran Patrick Carpentier will return to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, replacing Michael Waltrip this weekend in the No. 55 NAPA Auto Parts Toyota.

Sports car veteran Boris Said hopes to make his first start of the season in the No. 08 Carter/Simo Racing Ford. Said attempted to make the 2009 Daytona 500. The Carlsbad, Calif. driver has 33 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series starts, with his best finish fifth at Watkins Glen in 2005.

Following Sunday’s checkered flag, race fans are invited to participate in the fourth annual Track Walk at Infineon Raceway. An added bonus is a massive scavenger hunt for blue-and-gold specially-marked lug nuts that will be hidden on the road course. The people who find those lug nuts will be treated to great prizes, including a big-screen TV, Save Mart Supermarkets gift certificate and 2010 Toyota/Save Mart 350 race tickets.

Fans are also encouraged to make a voluntary contribution to Speedway Children's Charities, the charitable arm of Infineon Raceway. The charity benefits youth groups in Sonoma County and has distributed more than $3 million since 2002.

Ken Stabler, legendary quarterback of the Oakland Raiders, will be the Grand Marshal for the Toyota/Save Mart 350. Stabler guided the Raiders to their first Super Bowl victory in 1977.

Infineon Raceway will honor four officers from the Oakland Police Department who were killed in the line of duty prior to Sunday’s race. Four motorcycles from the department will lead the 43-car field around the circuit prior to the start of the race. Davina Kelly from the department will sing the national anthem.
