The article presents information on several recent developments related to automobile racing. Racer Casey Mears is likely to have a breakthrough season in 2006. With racer Jamie McMurray gone, Mears is the senior driver at Ganassi Racing, and he and crew chief Jimmy Elledge will lead by example. Racer Jimmie Johnson seems to be the heir apparent to racer Mark Martin's bridesmaid role. For three consecutive years, Johnson has been in a prime spot to win it all, but his end game falls short under pressure.
