More from the racing offseason

The last time Juan Pablo Montoya and Scott Pruett were teammates for Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates, Montoya bumped Pruett out of the way on his way to winning a NASCAR Busch Series race in Mexico City.

That won't happen at the 2008 Rolex 24 at Daytona because Montoya and Pruett will be sharing the same car along with Dario Franchitti and Memo Rojas in America's premiere endurance event.

Montoya, Pruett, Franchitti and Rojas will drive the No. 01 Ganassi-owned car in the race on Jan. 26-27.

Scott Dixon and Dan Wheldon, who drive for Ganassi in the IndyCar Series, will drive the No. 02 Daytona prototype along with Salvador Duran and Alex Lloyd as the team looks to make history with a third-straight overall title in the race.

Montoya, Pruett and Doran won the overall title in 2007. Dixon, Wheldon and Casey Mears were the overall winners in 2006.

Mike Wallace will still drive the No. 7 car sponsored by Geico insurance in 2008, but he'll be driving Toyotas for Germain Racing.

"We are very proud to have GEICO and Mike Wallace join our race team," said Mike Hillman Sr., general manager of Germain Racing.

Wallace is just back from Los Angeles, where he was working on more commercials featuring his nephew, aspiring racer Lauren Wallace.

Mitchell Stimpson, who drove street stock cars at Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, was shot and killed in his home in Yadkin County last week.

Stimpson's daughter, Lauren, discovered her father's body after the shooting. Her mother died of cancer recently as well, leaving the 13-year-old without both parents.

Members of the racing community have started a trust fund at Wachovia bank branches to help Lauren Stimpson. Donations can be made to the Lauren M. Stimpson trust at Wachovia branches.

Bobby Hamilton Racing and Arrington Manufacturing have formed a partnership that will lead to the relocation of the team from Mount Juliet, Tenn., to North Carolina. The team was formerly owned by Hamilton, who passed away in January.

BHR will continue to be run daily by Lori Hamilton with AMI management group. It will also continue to field the No. 4 and the No. 18 Dodges in the Craftsman Truck Series.

"This partnership allows us to grow for the future," Lori Hamilton said. "In the past few months, we realized how vital it is to our future success to be located closer to NASCAR and its community. Joey Arrington has always been a team player for our organization. Bobby always valued his knowledge and experience in the sport. It is a natural fit for our organizations to work together and take this team to another level."

Let's hope Joey Arrington can get Hamilton's team back to winning races.
