Rudd deserves a break after silver streak
|Speed Mail Larry|
Fatback's futureMikey from Gurnee, Ill.: With Ricky Rudd taking a break from racing, what do you think crew chief Michael "Fatback" McSwain will do? Larry McReynolds: Even if Ken Schrader drives the No. 21 car in 2006, the future of that ride is probably in Jon Wood's hands. If I were Fatback, I would be excited about the future. Or maybe Fatback feels like he's in the top end of his career, and he doesn't want to go through some growing years. But Wood sure shows a lot of potential and someone like Michael McSwain could be exactly what Jon Wood needs.
