Cup Downhill Event In Colorado
KEEP ON TRUCKIN’: Former F1 champion Jacques Villeneuve has signed a deal with Roush Racing, dependent on Villeneuve securing $18M in sponsorships. Villeneuve will start the ’07 NASCAR season in the Craftsman Truck Series, with entries in the Busch Series later in the year. Villeneuve earned around $100M during his five years with British American Racing from ’99-’03 (Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 12/2).
MILLER TIME AGAIN: While the USSA recently adopted a rule prohibiting team members from consuming alcohol “in the presence of the team’s staff,” World Cup of skiing organizers handed U.S. skier Bode Miller a bottle of champagne after he won the downhill event Friday in Beaver Creek, Colorado. Miller “sprayed photographers with the Champagne and raised the bottle to within a few inches of his lips before looking toward his coaches.” Miller then “rolled his eyes before taking a long sip and passing the bottle around” (N.Y. TIMES, 12/2).
