Saturday Oct 17th Ross Kenseth Wrap-up

Ross Kenseth was a good interview .. Here are a few tid-bits from the interveiw: We found out he does not have a plan for next years racing yet but he wants to race a Super Late Model .... He does not have a development contract with any NASCAR team... His number is 25 because his dad Matt is number 17 now and number 8 in the past, you add 17 + 8 = 25 and his birthday is on the 25th .... He is currently in High School basketball practice and hopes to be a starter this year, he is up to 6' 2" tall now. He would like to go to college someday.

We didn't connect with Dan Plan and Jordan Bianchi was sick with the flu but he gutted it out. NASCAR picks: Jason took Kasey Kahne, Dean chose Mark Martin and Jordan picked Jimmie Johnson.
