Who's Where in NASCAR

Rick Hendrick: HMS fans set your Tivo. Team owner Rick Hendrick will appear on The Oprah Winfrey Show tomorrow for an episode entitled "Heroes in Hard Times". Check out the preview here (click on Tuesday).

Carl Edwards: Cousin Carl is rarin' and ready to follow the likes of Michael Waltrip into the world of prime-time television. He'll be a guest star on The Bill Engvall Show, on TBS this summer. In an episode entitled "The Way We Were," Edwards will portray "the smug, hip manager of a 20-something nightclub." Something tells me the always glib Edwards won't have any trouble delivering his lines.

Chad Knaus: He's hanging out at the top. The very top, that is. Knaus was just named Sports Illustrated's #1 NASCAR crew chief. He was voted king of the heap by the folks at S.I. and his NASCAR peers. Quoth Darrell Waltrip, "I think Chad Knaus is like Vince Lombardi or Bear Bryant. They don't care who the quarterback is. They think as long as they do their system, they're going to win."

Ryan Newman: Ryan "The Rocket Man" Newman visited Fort Jackson, an Army Base in Columbia, SC, today to hang out with fans and sign some autographs. Check out the video, courtesy of The State newspaper.

Dale Earnhardt Jr: Ol' Junebug will motor on up to Detriot and show his support for beleaguered GM automarkers on Thursday, May 28. He'll be visiting General Motors employees and members of the Michigan National Guard at the Motor City Casino. More details here.
