I really, really liked Hank (especially on the short-lived Busch version of IWCR).  I had no idea he had a sponsor bail on him for a Roush ride.  Good to hear he is happy, but he makes the point that I have about young drivers not getting a fair chance these days:

I have always admired Parker for his allegiance to faith and family.  No doubt this has helped him through the tough times, especially when he thought he had a ride and he didn't.

I wish Boo Parker well in his future career as a football star! laugh

By the way, Roush did sign another sponsor, OdoBan, and another driver, Stanton Barrett, for 2003 in the #60 car, which I'm assuming was meant for Parker.  That deal lasted only a third of the season before the money ran out.  The #60 car returned in 2004 with Charter and Greg Biffle.  It's been on the track every week ever since (now with Carl Edwards, of course).
