As summer turns to fall, NASCAR's Silly Season is a little bit like a department store going out of business. All merchandise needs to be cleared out at bargain basement prices; and by the time you get to its final days, there's next to nothing left to shop for.
Sitting in the Bill Davis Racing transporter Saturday afternoon, two hours before driving in NASCAR's Craftsman Truck Series race at Las Vegas, Scott Speed reiterated that he's in no rush to get into Sprint Cup.
Bounced out of his seat with Toro Rosso in Formula 1 at the end of July, Scott Speed will attempt to resume his career back home in the USA. Speed, who was pushed out after a run-in with team management at the European Grand Prix last month, will begin his comeback effort this weekend at Michigan, where he and agent Glen Hinshaw will meet with several NASCAR teams.
