The mysterious clear gel

So..... Does anyone have any idea what it might have been that NASCAR found in Michael Waltrip's intake? I originally heard it was some sort of jet fuel but NASCAR has confirmed it wasn't and said nothing else that I have heard...

If the experiment was succesful, it would give new meaning to the word "hybrid".

I believe it was an old samurai initiation for Waltrip, involved saki, sushi, and his wife Suzy. .

Maybe Barry Bonds gave it to them, wasn't he using something from Balco called "Clear" and was a gel?

Read this morning they nailed 24 as well...seems to have been a height problem during the qualifying race. He'll start next to the end of the line.
