A very interesting draw for this year's competition, with two English teams being drawn in the same group (holders Liverpool and Chelsea in group G).
Elsewhere, Arsenal shouldn't be too troubled in their group with Ajax the only potential banana peel there. Manchester United should walk their group, and it looks like another season of European despair for Glasgow Rangers.
It is still a possibility Dale joins Hedrick racing. Dale has already taken one of his cars for a couple of laps at Texas. Can you imagine the team of Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and Jimmie Johnson as teammates? Take that Talladega!
