    Frank.......... Nancy was excited when I got home from turkey hunting saying Waltrip had commented on Studebaker at Nascar. Glad you caught it. and as above "as long as they are talking". Think how many people Googled "Studebaker" yesterday after that single comment.

    Like the late Dale Earnhardt said "I don't care if they talk good or bad about me as long as they're talking"

    Darrell Waltrip is a joker and I took what he said with a grain of salt. He may have said Studebaker because it's more likely that folks would recognize the name. Many young people would not recognize Hudson or Nash, etc. Edsel would get a reaction, but people don't really know why the reaction.

    DW could have just as easily said Packard or Edsel or Desoto...he was referencing a car that would in 2015 be old and therefore normally slow. I'll take it: as they say, "Any publicity is good publicity!"

    I caught the Stude reference too , and then later he mentioned how well the Jimmy Means entry did in the
    Saturday Xfinity race.
    Many have probably already forgotten about Jimmy . Time passes on .

    Studebaker mention at today's NASCAR race

    A few minutes ago commentator Darrell Waltrip was explaining how a driver will try to get to the front of the pack at Talladega. He said a driver will use anybody that can help push him to the front of the pack even if the guy is driving a Studebaker. Not exactly a positive Studebaker comment I would say, even though it was done tongue in cheek.
