Go Scotty!! Penske Gone!! (X3)

I Know this isnt a Australian Touring Cars post but from a Holden/Motorsport Fan, good luck to Scotty heading to USA, I dont expect to see him back in a DJR Penske car any time in the foreseeable future.

As much as he has the ability and did extremely well earlier in the year, i think the more races he would have done this year would have lined up a 2021 Indy tilt.

You could hear in his voice that he's ready to go, but this weekend will determine if it will be the case.

Either way, the boy has good head between those shoulders, so good luck to him, whatever happens. Can't keep a talent like that tied down.... Good SMcL!!

Auto Action spit on with this story

Speedcafe announced that McLaughlin will be driving full time in 2021 INDYCAR series.

Let the musical chairs start.

Except that it is now official. I think if Ryan Story is left to run the finances the team should be ok, it's had the boost it needed, just has to stay there now.

Who knows? Maybe a former driver a driver has bought a share in the team??

Penske obviously can't see a future ROI in staying and that says a lot without saying much.

As you say, nothing we all were not expecting tbh. Reading the news confirmation was no surprise.
TBH Some of Scotty's statements of late were very much a giveaway.... you dont thank the team for the opportunities etc etc mid stint, and so the expectation of his move was as expected as the end of the Penske / DJR alliance was.

Unfortunately I suspect so. As much as Dr Story saved the team, it only enabled it to limp to where it could become DJRTP.

I suspect the team will be fine next year, but where does the money come from to develop the Gen3 car?

How many of the stickers on the side will stay long term without being part of the Penske world? Can they still find $10m+ revenue to stay at the front, or do we see a shuffling of the pecking order?

Shell stays with them and backing from Ford Australia is still in place. That's at least something ppsitive. But at the same time, I can imagine 888 will be again unbeatable...
