Just c/p what Mikey has on his FB status..... I think even if we do know about it, it is still big news if Mikey is going to step aside and put the 55 in the hands of Truex...

I can't count on being in the car at that time, but will watch TWIN tonight and see if Mikey is there and if he lets anything slip. I doubt he would.

I wish Gibbs had gotten Truex. I'm a little surprised he's going to MWR. But I hope he kicks butt next year.

In a completely surprising announcement today, Michael Waltrip will be running a part time schedule in 2010 and Martin Truex will be moving to MWR next season. Who saw this one coming? :scratch: :rolleyes: I can't believe that they were able to keep this such a secret!

I know how you feel. When I first heard him say this I was like, WOW, are you kidding me?

Seriously though, best of luck to Truex and I'll be miss Mikey on the track. I've been watching him race for a long, long time.

I hope him and Ruetimann kick tail on the track. I've been disappointed by Vickers this year.

Glad to see toyota having some good drivers on board.

I have some Truex stuff going in the garbage when I get home. First come first serve. Fricken Benedict Arnold he is.

Go Chevrolet!!!!

I knew it was coming. But he could have done a switcheroo (and did the right thing) by going to SHR. It wasn't official yet.

It might have been the right thing but maybe SHR doesn't want him..... Honestly I don't think much is going to change for Truex anyways, it's not like he is out there winning races or doing so well anyways..

Believe me, had I been Truex, my first choice would have been Hendrick stuff. It wins...and nascar usually leaves it alone. :p

What makes anyone here think that he had an option to go to Hendrick? I heard the speculation that he could go to SHR. I've also heard that about Brad K., Dale Eanrhardt Jr., & Mark Martin.

Just saying that would have been my first choice. (praying for it to happen)
