After listening to Nelson Piquet it sounds like RG may be able to switch over to an ownership role in Nascar and possibly bring in a driver with their own sponsorships.
Nelson stated on XM today that his goal is to bring other Brazilian drivers to the U.S. and help them get into American Motorsports. Seems like with RG being more of an International team that the infrastructure is there for Nascar as well as all the other things going on at RGM. If he can find a "development" driver that can pay their way and use some of the stuff in the shop so it isn't collecting dust, it would be a win-win situation. There are already a couple Nationwide cars in the garage... right??? Probably a handful of cup cars, so find someone that wants to "Pay To Play".
RG could always run the Nascar races that are fun for him like Michael Waltrip continues to do.
Just a thought.
Hell, I try to read it but if f**ks with my mind and then I forget, wait what was I going to say. shit.
Home Depot wants someone capable of competing with 5-time. Joey demoted to 4th wheel.
Ahh...stirring the pot is fun! Kenseth is a better fit for the depot (at least he can carry a hammer w/o getting a hernia),and I'm sure the depot would like a shot at the Lowes 48!! Don't think that doesn't burn there ass watching win after win, championship after championship! Robby leaving NASCAR is my fault...every time I pick a team (Picked the Jets & Mets in 1970 to be my team), look what happens! Dale Jr should hunt me down like a wild dog because my 1st race I said to my wife "for a change, let's pick a winner to watch...This Dale guy looks good!"...yeh, that worked out...If the SST gets TV play, I'm in and can't wait! I just miss seeing him on the track week after week....Ok, so when RGM get's the word, you read it here first;)...on my first shot of the day...still is fired up and the nectar is flowing....care to taste?....
Jayski: M. Andetti has purchased Penske Engine Program & will field 1 full time Dodge in 2013. Pitpass.net
Too bad Robby and Michael do not have a amicable relationship. I wonder if they can bury the hatchet and share technology.
By the way, Kenseth going to Dodge is no surprise. Once he was tabbed to leave the 17 car and Ford said their good-byes, it was apparent that there is a behind the scenes transation taking place that involves Dodge and Matt. If they are going to survive in NASCAR, they need a big name that is bigger than Marcos Ambrose and Aric Amerola (sp?) IMO, good move by Dodge securing a past champion (didn't they do this 10 years ago?). Matt is no longer the #1 Ford driver or the face of Ford (not sure if he ever was), but he is a proven winner.
Would be nice to see RGM getting support from Petty-Andretti Racing (WOW, legends collide!) I'll bet this announcement isn't made until Indy. Let the Indy 500 talks continue.
This is all still in the different stages of rumors at this point. I wish more people were quoted than just pitpass.net Some offical PR announcements would be nice.
I see pitpass.net has reworded their article now.
Tweet from Tim Cindric "2 b clear, @penskeracing hasn't sold the ending shop to @michaelandretti, or any 1 else. Still evaluating options 4 2013".
PitPass.net writer sits on toilet, does his business, then looks down and summarizes what he just did.
Shit his pants?
Jack Roush: "He (Kenseth) will from my point of view be moving to the Dark Side"
Apparently Matt will not be in a Ford.
