    Villaneuve, Franchitti Keep Nextel Cup Going Global

    It started last year with Juan Pablo Montoya, the aggressive Columbian race car driver, Indy 500 winner and 1999 CART series champion, and leader of the 2007 class for Rookie-of-the-Year honors. Next up is Jacques Villaneuve, the Canadian driver who won the Indy 500 in Franchitti.jpg1995 and the Formula 1 championship in 1997, starting his first-ever NASCAR Nextel Cup race at Talledega on Sunday. Jeffy Gordon doesn't think JV is ready and feels NASCAR shouldn't allow anyone to enter the Nextel Cup series at Talledega due to the risk involved. Villaneuve has the sponsor (UNICEF) and the backing of the Bill Davis Racing team; he qualified 6th for the UAW Ford 500, so it's going to happen in spite of what Gordo thinks, which apparently is that the only cars ashley%20judd.jpgthat matter on the track are the ones eligible for the Chase. Also this week, Chip Gnassi Racing announced that this year's Indy 500 winner, Scottish driver Dario Franchitti, will be driving the #40 car in the Nextel Cup series with Juan Pablo as his teammate, replacing David Stremme in that car. The best part about that is now we get to see Ashley Judd at the race track, and she's got a great ass! Hey, I'm not the first to say it...credit Al Pacino in Heat for that one!
