Marty Smith of ESPN just tweeted that they will merge starting next year and will be in fords..lineup is:

9- Kasey Kahne
19- Sadler
44 Allmendinger
98 Menard

I am guessing at the numbers but the drivers are correct.

Canada Eh!
Sadler? really? Isn't his contract done this year so he can't sue his way back in the car for 2010?
It's not like he's been running well.

Yates Racing are flakier than a bowl of Corn Flakes :worried:

Remember they were going to merge with...

DEI?
Robby Goron?
Lanagan-Newman-Haas?

All fell through.

Fords? If I'm an owner I would only go with Toyota...or Chevy if I've got a deal with Hendrick. Well, actually I probably wouldn't go Chevy either considering the swindle that's been done to the american taxpayers.

Yeah, Benjamin and Myers were practically speechless coming back from break at 2:55 Eastern time. And that would be a huge vacuum sucking air from the east coast.

2 Penske

Menard brings something Sorenson doesn't, MONEY

Seriously, I almost expect Penske to make a manufacture switch before the end of the year now. Could he switch to Ford and add a 4th team (the 26)?

You're EXACTLY right about Menard, without hid daddy's money he doesn't sniff NASCAR from a 100 feet. Lets be honest, as far as Penske to Ford i would say highly unlikely i don't think he has Ford connections but he definitely has Toyota connections i think if Penske goes anywhere it will be Toyota. Just my 2cents.

Penske has connections and dealership stakes in every major manufacturer. And remember what Penske was from 1994-2002.

True i had forgotten about that, i just figured with the Indy Car former connection to Toyota that would of been the logical choice but forgot all about the fact that Penske was with Ford when he first came to NASCAR. My Bad

Anybody else listening to Moody? Hear the rumor of Kurt Busch's crew chief leaving?

Didn't Penske buy Saturn? I thought they were talking to Nascar about eventually racing Saturns.
