Бобби Лабонте возможно станет партнером Монтойи

Sirius Speedway has learned that DEI-Ganassi Racing is making a serious push to add another sponsor to its lineup, in an effort to avoid the possible loss of driver Martin Truex, Jr., and sponsor, Bass Pro Shops. Language in the contracts of both Truex and Bass Pro Shops reportedly requires DEI to field at least two fulltime teammates for Truex next season, and with only Aric Almirola’s unsponsored #8 car likely to return, sources say DEI had little choice but to merge with Ganassi, in an effort to retain their only funded driver. The merged DEI-Ganassi stable now includes Truex’s Bass Pro Shops-sponsored #1, Juan Pablo Montoya’s #42 with partial sponsorship from Wrigley’s, the #41 car with Target sponsorship, and Almirola’s unsponsored #8. Sources say the team made a major push recently to upgrade Fastenal’s NASCAR Nationwide Series sponsorship to a Sprint Cup deal, but were left high and dry when Fastenal declined the offer in order to begin discussions with another major NASCAR team.

При переходе на Chevrolet Монтойя останется без Bud Shootout

HOMESTEAD, Fla. – Chip Ganassi Racing’s Juan Pablo Montoya will not be allowed to use one of Dodge’s spots in the 2009 Budweiser Shootout if the new Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing team switches to Chevrolet.
According to the new rules, the top six teams from each manufacturer from the previous year qualify for the Shootout. When the new rules were announced in August, NASCAR officials said the issue of teams switching manufacturers in the offseason still needed to be worked out. While Earnhardt-Ganassi officials say they have not finalized a manufacturer, NASCAR Vice President of Operations Steve O’Donnell said Saturday morning that the teams will use their points from the previous year but their manufacturer of the current year to determine berths in the preseason event that comes eight days prior to the Daytona 500.

Richard Petty: «Мы не договорились с Ganassi»

Richard Petty говорит, что обсуждения о возможном слиянии Petty Enterprises и Chip Ganassi Racing не увенчались успехом, потому что стороны не смогли договориться о разграничении участия в потенциальном сотрудничестве.
Семикратный чемпиона Sprint Cup говорит, что он не участвовал в переговорах с Ganassi, но замечает, что помехой объединению стали фундаментальные разногласия между двумя командами о том, что каждая из них внесет в будущий союз. "Я не вел переговоры, и деталей не знаю" - сказал Petty в интерьвю autosport.com. "Личности - вот что не сошлось. У него (Ганасси) было свое видение того, как следует работать, у нас свое, и эти мнения не сошлись."
