A good sponsor! A new beginning?


 There will be a familiar name to road course racing next weekend as Jacques Villeneuve takes over the #51 TAG Heuer Eyewear Chevy for Phoenix Racing at Sonoma Raceway. The 42-year-old native of Montreal, Quebec, CAN isn't a stranger to NASCAR competition making three previous Sprint Cup Series, nine Nationwide and seven Camping World Truck Series starts. His best results were in the Nationwide Series where he earned four top-fives and six top-10 finishes; all on road courses. Villeneuve has also competed in F1, CART, and USAC races. He was most successful in F1 winning 11 times and CART where he won five times and was the series champion in 1995. "We wanted to put a driver in our #51 Chevy who would give us the best chance to win at Sonoma Raceway," said James Finch, team owner. "When the opportunity came up to have someone like Jacques Villeneuve in our car, we were very happy to make that happen. It's a long way out there to not be competitive. He gives us the chance to not only do really well, but to actually win the race. We led laps there last year and almost did win it; we plan on getting the trophy this time." Sponsorship from TAG Heuer Eyewear isn't a new thing for Villeneuve as the two were partnered up during his F1 competition days. "We are very happy to have Jacques Villeneuve representing our eyewear in the race at Sonoma Raceway," said Robert Cooper, Racing Director for TAG Heuer Eyewear. "He was an excellent ambassador for us during his F1 days and we're glad to be part of his return to NASCAR racing. We'd like to thank James Finch and Phoenix Racing for making this possible. We know Jacques is going to be looking good in our TAG Heuer Eyewear, and on the track in the #51 Chevrolet."

I will not get my hopes up for a permanent return to Nascar and just enjoy the race. Might be the last time we see him in a Sprint Cup car so I hope he'll make it a race to remember!

A Jacques Villeneuve Win at Sonoma This Weekend Would Be Great for NASCAR
The Controversial Road-course Ringer Has Created Many Enemies Due to His Past Aggression, but the Sport Benefits from Personalities like Villeneuve




Good Luck Jacques!  Have Fun!

We had two people from our Calgary office that were evacuated. One is now back and all is OK at her place. The other one, unfortunately, lives downtown and it will be middle of next week or worse before she can go back and assess the damages...

All the best to you guys out there.

Phoenix CC Nick Harrison - Says crew chiefs are asking him how Jacques Villeneuve will restart today....
Phoenix Racing Crew Chief Nick Harrison told me that folks in the garage are worried about what his driver Jacques Villeneuve is going to do at the start of the race. "I've had a lot of crew chiefs come up and say, 'What is he going to do? Is he going to go is he going to try to out break people is he going to do this....(or that)?' We're going to race as hard as we can," Harrison told me. "That's what we're here to do and that's what James (Finch) pays us to do and that's why he's got Jacques in the car and if these guys out here don't think that's what they're here to do then I'm sorry for them." Harrison says he expects his driver to be aggressive today. I interviewed Villeneuve in the SiriusXM NASCAR pre race show and he says he will race hard, as you have to do in a race like this, but hopes for a good clean race. 





It's amazing how everyone believes the media crap about JV. Too bad he couldn't give them a show.
JV would be good for Nascar as the "Villain"
