Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing ????? ???????????? ????? ?????????

Martin Truex jr.DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — When Dale Earnhardt Inc. merged with Chip Ganassi Racing last year, the plan was to run four cars in NASCAR’s top series.

It could be down to two.

Driver Martin Truex Jr. said Friday night that Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing is planning to field just three cars for next month’s Daytona 500 — with him, Juan Pablo Montoya and Aric Almirola behind the wheels. And Almirola said he has no guarantee to drive beyond the season-opening race because of sponsorship woes.

«As far as I can tell, I believe three,» Truex Jr. said at NASCAR’s preseason tour at Daytona International Speedway. «I’m pretty sure that’s what’s going on. … I believe that’s it. That’s about all I’ve got there. Montoya, me and Aric.»

Labonte to #8? Target to #42?

jayskisThere have been numerous Bobby Labonte sightings at Earnhardt Ganassi Racing, but the latest twist places the 2000 Cup champion in the #8 Chevy where he would be reunited with his former Petty crew chief Doug Randolph. Randolph moved to DEI last year to become crew chief for Paul Menard. Labonte worked with Jeff Meendering on the #43 Petty Dodge in 2007. Meendering has since left to be the car chief for Tony Stewart. It’s also been rumored that the Target sponsorship will move to the #42 Dodge and Juan Pablo Montoya. (Fox Sports)
