In another stretch for Habs Inside/Out, but it is hockey-related: Montreal native and New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur is at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve for this afternoon’s NASCAR Busch Series NAPA Auto Parts 200 race. He’ll be working the pits of driver Greg Biffle, an association with Biffle’s Cub Cadet Ford team raising funds for one of Brodeur’s favourite charities: the Quebec Breakfast Club, which provides meals to needy Quebec children.
Brodeur will be working the sign board in Biffle’s pit, waving a huge likeness of his own mask to guide Biffle in for servicing. We got Marty to talk about this, his summer, and, of course, hockey, in English and French.
(He might want to watch out in the pits for the No. 9 Dodge of Boris Said; that car carries Canadiens logos, because Habs owner George Gillett is going to buy into the Evernham Motorsports team any day now.)
