Sadler Leaves Yates Racing

Things haven't been going so well for Robert Yates Racing this year. The wins haven't been coming, Dale Jarrett and UPS are leaving next year for Michael Waltrip's new team, and now the driver I root for, Elliott Sadler, is checking out. Sadler is expected to go to Evernham Motorsports.

Now I have a big decision to make. Do I follow the driver...or the M&M's?! My oldest son's all-time favorite driver, Ward Burton, who is a tremendous guy currently in "involuntary retirement," is rumored to be a possible new driver for Yates. Possible problem: M&Ms wants a younger driver in its car.

Speaking of coming out of retirement, Fox analyst Darrell Waltrip will be "borrowing" his brother Michael's car and competing in Saturday's Busch Series race, at age 59.
