Kansas "News" and Notes

--Remember that this weekend's race is a SATURDAY NIGHT race.  So not only would you realize "Oh man, I missed the race" around 1pm Sunday, but you'd realize "Oh man, I forgot about Mother's Day" around 1:05pm Sunday.

--Ryan Blaney makes his Cup debut this weekend in the #12 SKF car for Team Penske.  He'll have to go through the usual rookie orientation which, contrary to popular belief, does NOT include a lecture on how to avoid a spinning Danica Patrick.

--Speaking of spinning, John Wes Townley is increasing his Nationwide Series schedule, thus allowing the viewing public to cement the relationship between fast-food chicken and a legacy kid with a DUI on his record.

--Speaking of Nationwide, that series is off this week while the Camping World Truck Series runs on Friday Night.  For those of you keeping track at home, we're more than two months into the regular season, and we've only run THREE Truck races.  What is this--IndyCar?

--Joe Nemechek is back in the #66 car this week.  Last week Michael Waltrip got to relive his younger days by running at the back of the pack for the entire race.
