No secret is safe in NASCAR. All that's left is for Mears to come out and say he's driving the 95

Or to throw us a hail mary and say he's actually driving the 16 for Roush (it makes no sense, I know)

Bowyer's season was a lame-duck season; can't blame him for being upset at not being paid.

 

His season was garbage because everyone and their grandmother knew he was heading to Stewart-Haas; and HScott probably didn't want to give him good equipment. Or in this case; pay him.

 

It also doesn't help Clint HScott's pretty much all but done as a Cup series team.

Roush Fenway Racing cuts from three teams to two teams. Presumably #6 (Bayne) and #17 (Stenhouse Jr).

 

Chris Buescher moves to JTG Daugherty Racing

I don't expect Buescher to be with JTG-Daughtery for more then this coming season. He'll be back with Roush (most likely) in 2018.

 

But, this gives AJ's team a chance to kick the tires on fielding a second team; see if they can actually do it. Buescher's number and sponsor(s) are yet to be determined.

 

There's a rumor going around that Kroger will possibly sponsor Buescher and not AJ; but we will see.

Sergio Marchionne, who is the CEO of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, said he spoke with NASCAR vice-chairman Jim France and International Speedway Inc. CEO Lesa France Kennedy about the return of Dodge to the stock-car series.

Asked about the return to NASCAR, Marchionne said, “Yes,” then explained it.

“I talked to Jim France about this (Saturday) night,” he said. “I was the one who made the decision to pull out of NASCAR. I am the guilty party at the table. In 2009, we came out bankruptcy and tried to race NASCAR (but) with the big bills and make payroll was a stretch.

“We are in a different place now. I think it is possible we can come back to NASCAR. I think we need to find the right way to come back in, but I agreed with both Jim and Lesa we would come back to the issue.”

 

I really hope this happens, I would love to see Dodge come back.

We need another manufacturer; try to balance out the sport and teeter the power balance away from Toyota.

FCA is still a financial mess.

 

They cannot sell Magneti Matelli to Samsung yet, or anyone else for that matter, and receive $3B from the sale. And their US sales numbers are under investigation.

HScott Motorsports officially announces they will not compete in 2017.

 

That's not surprising; the team was pretty much dead in the water anyway.

 

Even if they did want to compete; they'd have no driver, with Clint headed to SHR and Annett went to Xfinity.

I think they could have gotten Casey Mears if they tried.

 

Speaking of Mears, what's the news on him after being pushed out of the #13?

According to Jayski, Casey is still deciding on what to do for 2017. No word yet on his next move.

Gibbs is a Toyota factory team.  TRD makes the engines, and well, TRD is Toyota Racing Development.   Want to move the needle, outlaw F1-like factory teams.

More importantly, Annett took Pilot to JR Motorsports.
