HOUSTON—Noting that the group has been constantly interrupted by cars slowly driving through searching for open spots, onlookers confirmed Saturday that several Texas A&M tailgaters outside NRG Stadium are playing a pathetic little game of pickup football in the parking lot.
FRANKLIN, WI2005 NASCAR Truck Series points champion Ted Musgrave said Monday that driving a Dodge Ram pickup truck also plays an important role in his life off the racetrack. "A lot of guys, they finish the series and they don't want to even look at a truck until next February," Musgrave said. "Not me, though. Just because I make a pretty good living nine months a year driving a truck doesn't mean I lose my passion for driving trucks for stretches of 150 to 250 milessometimes much shortercome the end of the season." Musgrave added that he puts the same amount of effort and intensity into a January trip to his in-laws' house in Milwaukee as he does the Paramount Health Insurance 200 at the Texas Motor Speedway each June.
