Highly doubt that.
Me either.  Almirola was running right about par with Patrick.  Kenseth and Kahne had both said the 10 was not in play for either of them.  That would make sense since Busch's whole  play on his return has been more money.  I'm betting on Custer since his Dad is listed as an owner.

So the #34 has an open seat for 2018.

Kenseth sold his house or I would think maybe they are going after him but I can't really see Matt taking an uncompetitive ride. 

I am really hoping Wallace gets a shot next year with someone.  Would have enjoyed him in the 21 car. Menard not so much.

My thinking is this is where McDowell ends up.  Wallace is rumored going to the 43.

FRM appears to be staying with Ford and getting a Tier 1 engine program.  As well as restrictor palte and road course cars from Roush.  Ragan and McDowell look like the drivers.

Roush has 3 charters and apparently Ford wants to keep her driving for them.  IDK maybe Ford sponsors her.  Everyone knows Roush runs one of the tightest budgets of all the upper teams and always has.

Don't get why Ford would want to keep her, it's not like you even know she's in the race. riding around in the back.

Kinda like Dale Jr. these last few years.  But, his name is marketable.  So is Danica.  She may never see victory lane, but she's done better in the sport than any woman ever has.

Ford says it draws women to their brand.  As much as they spend advertising sponsoring her with an endorsement contract through a race team might be worth it.  If Ford says we can fund 15 million to sponsor the car but in return you have to be a spokeswoman it is a win for both Ford and Danica.  Not that she will ever see victory lane but outside of JR who else gets to ride around all day doing nothing and get shown on the screen repeatedly.

I think Almirola gets the 10 IF he brings Smithfield with him.

Perhaps I was full of beer when I read last week that Smithfield had worked things out with Petty. Can someone give me an update so I don't have to go searching thru articles ?

Smithfield is moving on but they settles with RPM and will provide some sponsorship to the 43 as well as the 10 next year.

Interesting. I can't believe Kenseth and Busch still don't have rides. Would be bad for the sport to lose so many big name drivers in a matter of three years.

Busch has a ride in the 41.  He and Kenseth could both sign deals like weeks ago.  THe issue is both are looking for more money.

Not true, Evernham's current wife was in top notch equip.  There simply has not been another female with better skills than Danica in CUp to date.  If a dirt tracker ever does, might see it.  THe open wheel folks seem to mightly struggle outside of road courses.

Damn. His comments are very telling about how far NASCAR has fallen. He says he feels like he should have been allowed to go out on his own terms but the decision was made for him. NASCAR needs to go back to its roots of short track racing and dump most of the mile and a halfs. Viewership and sponsorship ain't coming back until boring races are no longer the norm

Won't help. I live 45 mins away from Texas Motor Speedway. Only way I would go is if the weather was very mild and I had to wear at least a windbreaker. Nope ! Gonna be upper 80's so for the first time in at least 9 yrs I'm missing a local NASCAR race. Not gonna sweat and be bored.

Kurt Busch still not signed.  Must be a big pay cut. Guess he as 3 choices. Drive for what they offer. Take a ride in the back of the field like Bowyer was in 2 years ago.  Go sit next to Matt in the unemployment line.

Busch's only positive is Haas backs him.  So he has Haas as sponsor and Monster.  Expecting more money is unrealistic to me without better results.

Petty to Chevy and RCR.  Not sure how that was any better than what they had. That is their 3rd switch in the last 8 years or so..
