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.  

 

NASCAR should come up with a long term solution to be able to field 40 teams on television money alone and not so much on sponsorship.

Folks ain't watching like they were 15 years ago.

 

NASCARsponsorship dollars are stagnant if not dwindling. They didn't get the money from Monster which they really desired since TV ratings are down. It's hard to bring Dodge back in since FCA can't move cars as it is.

They already have their TV deal. That money is guaranteed whether 100 million people watch or 100 people watch. And it's waaaaaaayyyyy more money than the sponsorship rights.

Matt Dibenedetto will move from BK Racing to the #32 of Go Fas Racing for 2017.

 

Furthermore, Go Fas has leased its charter to the #21 of Ryan Blaney and the Wood Brothers. In turn, Go FAS will lease a charter from Richard Petty Motorsports, which once belonged to the #44 car of Brian Scott.

 

With the departure of Chris Buescher, Landon Cassill moves from the 38 to the 34 while David Ragan rejoins Front Row Motorsports and will pilot the #38. 

 

This now leaves BK Racing without any drivers for next season at the moment.

The wording confuses me. Go FAS is leasing its charter to the 21. Who is leasing the 44 charter?

Whoops! Guess I wasn't fully awake yet :P Allow me to break it down:

 

Wood Brothers is getting a charter from FAS Lane.

 

FAS Lane, in turn, will get their charter from Petty's 44 car.

 

Petty now has only one charter in the 43 car.

 

Hope that helped! :)

I wonder if they did that because Monster Energy did not pay as much for that sponsorship as much as they were getting from Sprint. 

Probably not.  There's already a Monster Energy Cup for motocross.....probably done to avoid confusion.
