    I'm mean seriously your gonna keep Danica over Newman? Yes i get it, it's business & she brings in the sponsorship that Ryan can't, but shouldn't performance count for anything?

    Let's face it, other than restrictor plate races she is not capable of winning races, in fact she can't even run in the top 20 & while Newman isn't exactly lighting the world on fire, he is capable of winning any given race & getting into the chase but i guess none of that matters.

    Well i guess it is what it is but i think it's a bunch of crap when the money is more of a factor than your performance, so i would say i lost a little bit of respect for tony & the decision he has made.
    I agree but their whole team has run like crap this year. I think Newman will get the better deal getting out of there and going to someone else where the focus isn't on the boss's car

      They probably had to promise her a lot when they signed her. Fire the most popular driver in NASCAR? Unthinkable. Sponsorship money probably has the most to do with it, though.

      Just a side note. Patrick's old ride in IndyCar has won three races this year. Different number (27 instead of 7), but it's the same car, sponsor and team.

        A "new" ride for Newman will ultimately be best for him ala Matt Kenseth.
        Too much pressure from NASCAR on SHR to showcase Danica.

        Newman has been the best over all performer on that team so far this year.
        He has been flirting in the top 10, getting wrecked a lot like last week.
        (btw, anyone else grin when Danica took out Ricky last week ?)

        Newman will land on his feet and do well, I wish him the best, sadly, it's just business.

          You all make some really good points there & i guess i never thought about what type of contract Danica was given, so when you think of all that i guess she wouldn't be going anywhere "yet" but i have to believe if her performance doesn't improve from this year to next then you start thinking about letting her go when her deal is done.

          As for Newman, i wish him well also but i'm just not sure he will have as good of an oppurtunity as Kenseth did, Matt went to an established championship caliber team & organization. There doesn't seem to be many openings this year unlike in years past when all kind of rides would open up, seems like not much movement taking place this year.

          • Correct me if I'm wrong but Harvick is taking newmans ride correct? He's going to do well with that team I think.

              Yes.

              Agree about the Chase. But like all things in life, I've gotten used to it. I tell hubby, "Just let me complain".

              I think it's going to take a lot for them to let her go. As long as she's showing "improvement", they'll tolerate it. Now, it wouldn't surprise me if she made the change to another team. Blame-shifting, you know? "It's not me, it's the equipment/CC/whatever".

              I hope Newman finds a great ride. Kenseth is so much happier with JGR. Gibbs.....Roush. I can see why.

                I've heard Roush wants to get back to four cars, Newman +Sponsorship might be a good combination, especially if he can bring Matt Bourland with him

                • So who's ready to see the truck race tom.night racing on the dirt at Eldora Speedway? Should be very intersting to see how this race goes, i could see alot of cautions & alot of spins.

                  Should be some good entertainment & who knows if it goes well maybe they could someday get the cup cars out there, i know Tony is all for it & i think alot of the drivers would be down with trying it.

                        Can't wait to see it, a lot of these guys are out of their element. Can't wait to see if a guy like Scott Bloomquist can steal one. I also laughed when they said John Wes Townley hit the wall, I was like, he does this on pavement, are they really surprised?

                              Tony looked so happy. I thought it was cool that he went down the line, talking to all the drivers right before they went on the track.

                              I was thinking about Cup on dirt. It seems like it would have to be bigger than half a mile. It would be fun/entertaining.

                                I think a half mile could work. Bristol and Martinsville are that size. Eldora and Knoxville are plenty wide for the cup cars, I think it would be great. Tonight's race was truly a treat to watch and just plain exciting. Norm Benning drove the wheels off his truck to get in, then flips the bird to Greenfield was priceless lol
