Oh my oh my!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Holy cow, did not see that coming.

Just reading this from the Ford Racing email update. I think its good news. We're starting to see some of the real world effect of economics in NASCAR. Chevy not adding teams, Dodge contracting and Ford expanding. I'm glad to see this, it can only help.

good point!... Maybe Ford will start running SHO's next year??

Glad to hear that.

Good news. One of the few drivers I don't dislike. Just as long as he doesn't make anymore allstate dancing commercials :p

Zastava_101 9/11/09 07:36 PM

I'm glad A.J. Allmendinger will be driving Ford next season. He's one of my favorite drivers.

Zastava_101 9/11/09 07:43 PM

By the way, it's a shame that that no talent Paul Menard is still driving (because of his rich daddy) and great drivers are out of jobs (like Travis Kvapil).

The times are a changin'! Nice to see this!

I wouldn't call Travis "great."

I'm pretty sure he would end in Top 20 or 25 with Yates Ford. Which is much better than what Menard is doing now, he's barely staying in Top 35.

One thing doesn't make sense to me: I know Roush have to close #26 team, but why are they letting McMurray go? Why can't McMurray drive for #19 or #44 at Petty next season? Heck, he's better than both Sadler and Allmendinger.

Good Point.... Contracts????

Somehow, I can't see Petty Enterprises having anything to offer that will result in more wins by anyone driving a Ford:shame:.

STP dropped Petty Enterprises years ago, and now even Chrysler has dropped 'em. Do these sponsors/manufacturers know something Yates doesn't?:wonder: Evidently, they do...:dunno:

Wake me when a Yates/Petty vehicle wins a superspeedway event...:sleeping:

FR9 engine is coming Greg. I'm sure thats going to have some impact. I sure hope it is anyway.

Richard is smart...this is the second time he changed to Fords , because he got tired of being beat by Fords (first time was 1969)!!

Zastava_101 9/14/09 07:17 PM

He went to Ford back in 1969 because Chrysler wouldn't let him drive Dodge Daytona (Chrysler insisted Petty stays with Plymouth). When Plymouth built 1970 Superbird he went back to them.
