Other cars with celebrity pedigrees being offered at the Collector Cars of Fort Lauderdale event include a 1933 Cadillac seen in the Academy Award-winning film Seabiscuit and a 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 owned by Formula One World Champion and Indianapolis 500 Winner Jacques Villeneuve.

Looking at the entry list for the Daytona NNS race I see that David Ragan in the Go Canada Ford is sponsored by Certainteed, a manufacturer of building matierials sold throughout USA and Canada.

Certainteed is owned by Saint-Goban, a huge multinational company based in France. You would think a company based in France might want to sponsor a guy named Villeneuve, not Ragan.

I don't even know that there is a link between Certainteed and Saint-Gobain !
(I don't know who's is Certainteed before)
http://www.saint-gobain.com/

You are right ZingBot

Semble t'il que JV est plus intéressé au Brésil qu'au Nascar...

In answer to the JdM article

I can see JV's point to a certain extent.

There's only one car. Is it any good? What if it crashes? (JV has already done the Bill Davis route)

Ranger is younger. Is JV willimg to take a ride away from him?

If JV has to use his own money, is there something better out there?

Speed had a good show on Kenny Wallace and his struggle to qualify for Daytona this year. Kenny's earlier career was more successful and then he took a bunch of junk rides that did his career no good. Last year, he was with RAB racing which was a good but poor organization. He drove for free. This year his goal was to qualify for Daytona. They were supposed to get a Daytona car from Red Bull but Red Bull backed out. He couldn't do pre testing because there was no car. He also mentioned what a struggle it was to get sponsorship. They managed to get American Ethanol and got a car.

I thought of JV when Kenny was at Daytona. In the end he didn't qualify. A huge disappointment.

He also mentioned that a cost for a licence went from $3000 to 8 or $10,000.

Maybe JV has decided its not worth it especially after being with Penske last year.

I think he should hire a sport psychologist. That's too much pressure for one man.

Two races a year and he has to win them both!

Hey all.

Im glad Penske and JV are reunited and he'll have as good a chance as ever to win both events. They had the pace to win both races last year. A deal for the Glen would be nice too.

I'm excited! Very Happy

Bing translate
from Yvan P
We learned this weekend that Jacques Villeneuve has made NASCAR tests last week... Several pilots of the Nationwide Series and the Sprint Cup drivers were in action, JV stood by recording the best time of the day in his 4th tour of runway.

According to a well-informed source, JV could participate in more races than 2 races planned, Road America and Montreal. There are even discussions for departures in Sprint Cup.
