• Rumors have circulated that Don Schumacher has sold off the Pro Stock portion of his multi-car team. Schumacher denied that he's sold off the team but did admit he's entertained the proposition of bringing in a partner. Torco's has learned this partner could likely have a Texas background. While on the subject of Schumacher, we have also learned from a reliable source that Carlson has not left the team and is officially retained to help in the engineering of DSR's Pro Stock cars.

Carlson will not be driving in either Brainerd or Memphis we are told. (8-5-2006)
