I know this will make Vivian happy.  Caisse has been running the Busch East Series this year in a team owned by veteran, Andy Santerre, and Vivian and I have spoken about his talent several times.

From bgnracing.com:

"Sean Caisse, second in the Busch East standings and last year's rookie of the year in that division, will drive the No. 33 Kevin Harvick Inc. Chevrolet in the Busch Series event next week at Dover International Speedway. (Scene Daily) AND: Harvick Inc. (KHI), announced today that 20-year-old NASCAR Busch East driver, Sean Caisse, will drive the No. 33 Outdoor Channel Chevrolet in the September 23, NASCAR Busch Series race at Dover (Del.)

Caisse will be pulling “double-duty” at Dover, Del.; competing in both the NASCAR Busch East race on Friday and the NASCAR Busch Series race on Saturday. (KHI PR) (09-18-06)"

Glad to see another Bush North/East driver getting a good ride.

OK, I'm gonna get busted for this but what's up with New England drivers and NASCAR?  If I'm not mistaken, Santere gave the Cup a shot without success.  Randy Lajoie ate up the Busch series but no Cup success.  The only successful Cup driver I can think of from New England was Pete Hamilton.  I know they say New Hampshire is Truex's home track....but I'd bet Dover is a lot closer to his home than New Hampshire.

Actually, Andy Santerre was running the Busch Series when he had a very serious leg break in an accident.  It took him a long time to recover and I think he just chose to go back to Busch North after that.

No, I think it was Craven, who drove the #41 car, which was then a Chevrolet owned by Larry Hedrick.  The sponsor was Kodiak smokeless tobacco.

That set Craven back quite some time, but he was able to join Hendrick Motorsports (#25 team) in around 1998.  That tenure lasted a little more than a year and was stormy by most accounts.
