Just wondering what your thoughts were on The Real Deal Don O'Neal driving for GVS this season, All the other drivers didnt do so hot with them and didnt hang around to long, So do you think he will be as good, and do you think he will stay with them?

I talked to Rex Richey about driving for GVS and he spoke well of them. His biggest problem was living up to their expectations. He said that put a lot of stress on him. I think GVS has a good program and just needs to get pointed in the right direction.Maybe Don will be the one to do that.

Maybe Don will run well with them.

Personally, I think this will be a good deal for both Don and Gulf Valve Service. Note that I did not say GVS Racing, as GVS Racing, as it was in the past no longer exists. The Deal with Don O'Neal seems to be a lot different, with the cars being stabled in Indiana, not Louisiana, and with Don making a lot of the decisions. Mr. Hedrick will still be involved, but more as an advisor, than a hands-on owner. I think this bodes well on both parts, as Don is an aggressive driver, and Hedrick seems to want to make sure the maintenance part of the deal is kept up.
Good luck to this new team, and may I get tired of seeing them in victory lane!
