"So did anyone listen to Buddy Baker and Chocolate Meyers on XM this week? They seem to think that this is a "see you later" and not a goodby to NASCAR. They stated that all the development that went into the new car and that the new design…"
"A new body isn't a new chassis.Not really a big deal, IMO. If Rg wants to hang a 2013 body of either ford,chevy or toyota on his current cars, he can send them to a shop that hangs bodies for a living. Any other changes on the table ( weight…"
"It's true that he does like to build his own cars. But, as time has gone on his NASCAR program has fallen farther and farther behind. Now next season he needs new body panels and a different engine program. I just don't think there will be…"

"When GM pulled the plug on Pontiac and it left NASCAR, the brand could still run in the Cup races for 2yrs(?). So I think that RG may be able to use what he has next year, if he wants to. Sometimes the old is better then the new."
"Dodge couldn't find anyone that wanted to work with them that could run up front. Rather than go with a 2nd or 3rd rate team they pulled the plug. Makes sense to me.
The reason none of the upper teams wanted to dance with them probably had a…"
