With Nascar hitting one of its two road course stops on the Sprint Cup circuit this week, a number of teams are employing a number of road course specialists. While virtually none of these teams have much of a shot at winning, a little pit strategy, timely passes, and luck could have them fighting for a top-30 finish. Here's quick rundown of this weekend's road course ringers.
Justin Marks--Tommy Baldwin Racing #7 (Sany): Justin co-owns a karting facility in North Carolina with Michael McDowell, called "Two Guys Who Got Screwed When The Nascar Economy Collapsed".
Alex Kennedy--Humphrey-Smith Racing #19 (MediaMaster): Hmm, that's odd…I had no idea that start and park teams controlled the media.

Boris Said--FAS Lane Racing #32 (HendrickCars.com): When reached for comment, Boris replied, "BORIS MAD! BORIS GET REVENGE ON BIFF! BORIS HAVE LOW APR ON NEW BMW 3-SERIES!"
Ron Fellows--Circle Sport Racing #33 (Canadian Tire): Though this team typically start and parks whenever a non-Dillon is in the drivers seat, Ron brings solid sponsorship to the team--so you KNOW they'll be on their Eh-Game.
Victor Gonzales Jr.--Tommy Baldwin Racing #36 (currently unsponsored): Its good to know that Victor isn't self-conscious about running a stark-naked car on national TV.
Jacques Villeneuve--Phoenix Racing #51 (Tag Heuer Eyewear): Well, if you're planning to shut down your race team, you might as well wreck all the remaining inventory first.
Paulie Harraka--BKM #52 (HASA Pool Products): Lets see--born in Northern New Jersey, goes to Duke, vacations in Northern California? Yep, sounds about right to me.
Tomy Drissi--NEMCO Motorsports #87 (Wolverine): No word on if Tomy will be equipped with the "Instant Excitement--Just Add Oil" apparatus last used by the 87 car at Watkins Glen.
