Okay you guys have been going on long enough about this deal so I am forced to put in my 2cents of issues, and I don't want a huge comeback on what I say because it really makes no sense to argue over facts, then gossip.
1. Mansill is the best racer of all time... I can say that because he is related to me through my Mother and I can call him Uncle. Regardless I consider him to be one of the best !!
2. F1 is a series that was formed to prove who was the best in Europe...not here, and anyone from here that has gone to F1 has never had enough to repeat.
3. I worked for Gilles as a mechanic in the Atlantic days and we won everything under the sun and I can say he was way ahead of talent... just flat out great.
4. Gilles went to the F1 with an invite from McClaren and after 2 tests and 2 races... quit because the cars were not up to his driving talent.
5. Gilles drove for Ferrari as a test driver and was signed overnight to take over a seat in F1 which turned out to be a huge leap forward for everyone.
6. We loose Gilles, and the entire racing community suffers as everyone around the world has just seen the rise and fall of one of the very best of all time.
7. Jacques his son comes along and takes over where Dad left off, and walks through Victory's Lanes like a fish swims through water. Winning is as simple as walking when you have that much talent.
8. Indy 500- no problem... F1 Championship... No problem
9. Takes a ride in a underfunded, but state of the art race team and wins, but the team slowly looses control of staying on top and JV finds himself in a very bad situation.
10. JV is no longer regarded as the dream, but criticized by the media as he no longer has the lust to win. Truth is JV was on his way to becoming an individual on his own and as all teenage kids do, started to wear funky clothes, dying his hair, talking back.... this was the demise of JV as F1 does not, at that time, allow that image.
11. JV quits racing because he is tired of the BS that goes along with racing.
12. JV learns in between cutting Albums of which he sings on, that there is a whole nother world our there that seems to be very much down to earth.
13. Nascar says welcome JV. If you can do this you will get a ride....JV tests....JV is very,very good....JV is in.
14. JV, just like any other driver will find his nitch along the way and learns about courting Sponsors... and here we are......If the guy can make it happen, and has the talent, them let him dance and shut up until you can do better, but for God's sake, enough is enough.
LET THE KID RACE AND ENJOY IT.... LIFE COMES TO FAST TO LOOSE OUT ON DREAMS  !!!

JV was getting interviewed on Speed last night and seemed pretty cool. The announcers (Larry Mac and crew)were funny because they seemed like they didnt want to offend him or something. Asked him if he was bother by all the complaints about him racing Cup, and that he could take out a Chase guy because he was inexperienced, and he said he understood and probably would have felt the same way. Although Lil E said he would rather have JV behind him, because he knos the other guys would spin him. He said the may difference between F1 and Nascar is there are cars too pass.LOL. And he has too learn how to race in a pack of cars. I hate to admit but he looked lot more intelligent then alot of drivers the interview. And one other thing was strange that didnt dawn on me till now. He didnt have a shirt or hat with a logo or anything showing. He needs a better PR guy.

Here's the latest on the original topic:

Latest on Bill Davis Team Sale: Jacques Villeneuve has apparently completed a buy-in of Bill Davis’ High Point-based Toyota operation, according to sources close to the team, and Villeneuve will have at least a majority interest in the operation, perhaps even full ownership. Last Sunday, when asked about the report of a planned Villeneuve buy-in, Davis said he wasn’t in a position to give a specific answer but did say he was considering a number of options. It is unclear what a purchase price might be. It is also unclear why Villeneuve, who lives in Montreal, would want to buy a NASCAR team, or if Villeneuve might move the team from High Point, where Davis has operated for more than 15 years.(Winston Salem Journal)(10-27-2007)

I am excited about Jacques coming into nascar and hope he can enjoy some success, however, should he end up with my man Blaney's owner points I would be very perturbed, to say the least and not get booted.
 The way Dave's luck has gone though I don't have any doubts that is what will happen should they end up majority owners. >:(

Me too JoeChance.
 I am pretty confident that Dave could qualify in for them. He is a good qualifier and he and Baldwin seem to be clicking, but something like the broken swaybar yesterday is all it takes to miss one.
 I'm also not sure what CAT would think of that after just signing a multi year deal. I can't see them supporting it.

Thats not lack of a PR guy, I'll bet thats just Jacques trying to live up to his "rebel" or "against the grain" image.

Did you get mad when Jeff Gordon bought into Hendrick so that Jimmie Johnson could have a ride?

i think jv will get(not should) the 22 owner points due to the fact that blaney can out qualify the rest of the have nots for the first five races, fair, not at all smart for a busniss side yes, dont agree with it though. just a thought this would not be the fault of jv,lay the blame where it belongs at the feet of brian france and mike helton the creators of the top 35 lock in.
