Wow. just when I thought I might start liking the little douch now that he's going to be back with Ford :shock:
The whole thing with Petty-Yates-Gellett is one big CF anywho. Budweiser will leave with him I'm sure since Petty doesn't want beer sponsorships. Maybe he can go drive for Stewart-Haas Posted via Mobile Device
I scanned the article. Seems like typical "driver's contract expiring" talk. Would I blame him? no. I agree with Semi, it's a big CF over there, it seems like since Evernham left the scene, it has gone down. Whatever the case, I'm not expecting much from that team next year.
I would say if Kevin had a sponsor to bring to SHR, he probably would head over there. Maybe he could bring Shell/Pennzoil or Hershey, but I doubt it. Long-term, Harvick wants to build KHI to a cup-level program - but not for himself. He needs the big paycheck from a top-tier cup ride to pay for KHI's growth, and RCR can provide that better than anywhere else he might end up.
If Kahne is to go to SHR in '11, then something concrete needs to be in place by next summer if a third team will be on the grid for the 2011 Daytona 500. I would say by the 600 there will be open courtship. Tony likes announcing things at Indy, so the goal is to get the deal done by then.
