JTG Daugherty Racing to Toyota? JTG Daugherty Racing hasn't named a manufacturer for next season when it moves full time to the Sprint Cup Series from the Nationwide Series but the team was working out of a Michael Waltrip Racing hauler on Saturday at Kansas Speedway. JTG Daugherty, which qualified on speed for Sunday's Cup race with driver #47-Marcos Ambrose, had a hauler fire in June that destroyed one of its transporters. The team got some help from Richard Childress Racing when it qualified for the Allstate 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in late July. But could the team working out of a MWR hauler at Kansas be a sign of a potential affiliation and a move to Toyota? JTG Daugherty currently fields Fords. "Obviously we have a really good relationship with Michael Waltrip Racing," Geschickter said. "At this point, we're not ready to announce anything. But we know them better than most in the fact that we were able to go straight over there and borrow some equipment."(SceneDaily.com)(9-28-2008)

UPDATE 2: JTG Daugherty Racing has signed what team co-owner Brad Daugherty called a "technical alliance" with Michael Waltrip Racing, and thus will field Toyota Camrys full-time in the Sprint Cup Series beginning in 2009. The deal will be announced formally Wednesday afternoon. Under the agreement, JTG/Daugherty receives the same chassis, engines and technological information-sharing that Waltrip gets through Toyota Racing Development. "This way we don't come out of the box already behind," said Daugherty, reached by phone Wednesday. "Actually, this puts us about two years ahead of where we would have been otherwise." Daugherty, an ESPN NASCAR analyst, said the alliance includes the #47 team being housed under the MWR roof. Daugherty stressed there was still independence from MWR, however, saying it is not a merger and that the #47 is not a fourth Waltrip team. "We'll work with Toyota Racing Development out of Costa Mesa [Calif.], and all their parts and pieces already flow through MWR," Daugherty said. "It just makes sense for us to be in-house over [at MWR]." Marcos Ambrose will drive the #47 Toyota, with sponsorship from Little Debbie Snack Cakes and Clorox.(ESPN.com)(10-1-2008)

This sucks. I really don't know why would they want to use Toyotas since they suck right now, even those from Gibbs.

Bad move for them.

Michael Waltrip Racing is one of NASCAR's worst teams.

I get the e-mails from Marcos race team and I dont know if they actually accept e-mails back but I sent them a letter stating how dissapointed I was that they were switching to Toyota and I cannot root for him while he drives that POS!

Am I wrong? I really like Marcos but it was like Bill Elliott, my favorite driver of all time and when he switched to Dodge, crushed wasn't even close to what I was feeling. I guess I'm just a complete Ford guy but he was one of the reasons I fell for Fords...1987 I bought my first brand new car which I still have 87 GT Vert..Man I dont know..

I felt the same way about Mark Martin. I was a big Martin fan, but then he decided to leave Ford after 19 years and drive for Chevy. He mentioned how he wanted to drive just a part time, but he'll be driving full time next season at Hendrick. I still have a lot of respect for him, but I just can cheer for him when he's driving a Chevy the same way I cheered when he was driving that #6 Ford. It just doesn't feel right cheering for a non-Ford, no matter who drives it.

get over it...I can understand not keeping the Ambrose fanship...but Martin and Elliott? I followed Elloitt to Dodge becuase we is one hell of a racer, and a standup American. Same thing with mark. I started liking them becuase they drove fords, but thats no reason stop rooting for them to do well.

....Would I hater Tiger Woods if he starting playing Titleist instead of Nike?

....Would I hate Micheal Phelps if he stopped wearing Speedo googgles?

I can understand your posistions...but they are just making career discisions....If I remember right...Bill and Mark both still drive mustangs.

I still don't understand why Martin left. He complained how he wanted to drive just a part time schedule and that's why he left Roush after 19 years. And yet he'll be driving a full season next year at Hendrick ...

Marcus drove his first race for Waltrip yesterday.

Did pretty good considering he drove for one of NASCAR's worst teams. He finished 29th.

Air Force leaving Wood Brothers? hearing that the Air Force sponsorship will leave the #21 Wood Brothers Ford and could be headed to either one of the Roush Racing teams [#'s 6,16,17,26,99] or Yates Racing [#28, #38].(11-6-2008)
Doesn't Roush already have sponsor for all 5 cars for next season?
