Title: Help! I need backup!
Post by: Desmond on December 28, 2005, 02:23:44 AM
Last night, I missed Roush Racing Driver X for the first time.

If anyone watched this program, please give me a summary of what happened.  

I understand the show dealt with mock commercials and driver appearances.  Among the 12 finalists, who looked the most at ease, and who couldn't wait for it to be over?

Sorry, Des

I was out of town and didn't know it was on so missed it also.  Would love to hear how it went.  Will it be on next Monday?

Darn!  It was a very interesting show.  Well worth watching.  I don't know if if I can think of all their names to do a proper recap.  When I get home tonight, I'll check the Tivo guide to see if Discovery is repeating it anytime and let ya'll know.  If not, I know they repeat them in a few weeks on Discovery HD Theatre (which we get).  If it's not on elsewhere, I might be able to make a tape or DVD from that broadcast for you guys.  Perhaps I could send it to Desmond and he could forward it on to Vivian.

I heard from Sharon Bundy, an Internet columnist, that Danny O'Quinn did a great job in the mock sessions.  In fact, she picked O'Quinn to win the competition.

Desmond, I'm asking that you PLEASE do not refer to the results (or anything about them) in the future.  Okay?  The results were released publically last fall, but those of us wanting to enjoy the show in it's entirety would prefer not to have anything about then mentioned here.  Thanks!   :D   Hopefully, Discovery will air the final episodes of the show before Daytona since "driver X" will probably be in a Roush truck there.   ;)

If you'd like to discuss the results privately in email, please write me directly and I'd be happy to discuss the show and what I know about the drivers.

I missed this show too. I'll bet it is re run sometime this winter.
