TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) - Some compare it to trying to land a date for the prom. Really, it's just two parties haggling over a potentially lucrative business deal.
Only in this case, the negotiations are taking place at nearly 200 mph.
Drivers who usually only talk to their crew chiefs, spotters and perhaps a teammate will be chatting it up with a bunch of guys they're trying to beat during Sunday's restrictor-plate race at Talladega Superspeedway. They'll all looking for someone to go along with a you-lead, I'll-push, then-we'll-switch arrangement.
Clint Bowyer says to expect ``a lot of pleading, a lot of begging'' as drivers take to the airwaves, hoping to land a partner for the tandem style of racing that's become the norm at Talladega and Daytona.
