More Sox for New England sports fans

The Boston Red Sox are everywhere, and even a NASCAR excursion won't deprive fans of that.

During a press conference at Fenway Park in Boston on Thursday morning, Roush Fenway Racing announced that Carl Edwards' No. 99 Ford will cary the Red Sox logo on it in Sunday's Lenox Industrial Tools 300 at New Hampshire International Speedway. The sponsorship comes in conjunction with Red Sox sponsors Lumber Liquidators and Gillette.

In addition to Roush's ownership ties to Sox owner John Henry, Edwards is a member of the Gillette Young Guns program, a NASCAR sponsorship.

The Red Sox are already slated to host Roush Fenway Racing Day at the ballpark on Friday, when they return home from a 9-game road trip to host the Texas Rangers.

Be sure to check out Scootah's Sox Talk today. I gave you a plug and dissed the Sox for all this NASCAR crap they keep shoving down my throat.

Thanks for the compliment brother. Despite my dissing of the Sox and NASCAR, I've become a faithful reader of Green-White-Checker. I should have made it clear, I'm not dissing NASCAR, I'm dissing the Sox for crowding their Sox coverage on their TV station with auto racing. I have other places to go for NASCAR (Green-White-Checker for example).
