It's too bad Carl Edwards is having a great season. Honestly, if he doesn't move teams, there's not going to be much heat from the stove.

I think it's obvious Red Bull want an all-new driver pairing. Mark Martin and Cole Whitt? Not sure where it would leave Brian Vickers, with everything likely open being so low-profile, and he's not the caliber of driver JGR would start a fourth team for or anything. Does Nationwide beckon?

Vickers and Logano are the two drivers most in question for me? After a rather poor year, will Gibbs give him the same patience as Roush with Ragan? The latter is starting to pay off. Vickers, he's gonna be a big question mark for next year. Also heard that Montoya is in a contract year, though I doubt he will leave EGR.

I would be surprised if Logano and Montoya leave their current team.

I doubt Montoya leaves, too. Been really quiet there and while I still think he has some wins in him, 2009 was his career year and I don't know if he'll ever pull that kind of season together again. I'm sure a lot of the teams are familiar with his antics now, and as much as I like the guy, I can't see anyone other than Chip putting up with it.

Logano, well, I want to see him in another ride, if only to see what he can do. I have to believe he needs a change of scenery because he's not this bad, and he's been more than capable of a good run in Cup from time-to-time. He was rushed up too soon and JGR might not have been the best environment for him to learn the big cars. Logano and Martin at Red Bull, giving Whitt another year to develop? Never going to happen, but I like the idea, personally.

Not driver related, but anyway, Watkins Glen Int'l President Michael Printup plans to lobby NASCAR to change to the longer layout at WGI that includes the Boot. If NASCAR was to even consider it I reckon it'll happen in 2012 although I suppose there is a microscopic chance it might happen to this years' race already - at least that's what Tony Stewart want to see, after the McLaren car swap he recently did with Lewis Hamilton (during which they drove on the longer WGI layout).

Personally I'd love to see NASCAR swap to the longer layout.

News!

Gibbs wants Carl Edwards. Trying to put him in the #20, with Logano moving to a 4th team car, IF this ever happens.

"Gibbs courting Edwards? am hearing that Carl Edwards, currently the driver of the #99 Roush Fenway Racing Ford, is being courted by Joe Gibbs Racing to take over the #20 Home Depot Toyota ride. Where would that leave current #20 driver, Joey Logano, to the long rumored 4th Joe Gibbs car, no word on who would be the sponsor, if it happens.(6-17-2011)"

May as well get this news over with:

Andretti Autosport going to NASCAR? SPEED.com open wheel reporter Robin Miller joined Steve Byrnes on NASCAR Race Hub on SPEED Thursday evening to discuss Danica Patrick and Andretti Autosport among other things. Following is the transcript in part from the interview;
On any traction to the rumors of Andretti Autosport going to NASCAR:
Miller: "John Lopes (CFO of Andretti Autosport), who puts all their sponsorships together, said last week & I said, 'Hey, is there anything to this rumor that you guys might be going stock car racing?' He said, 'We're exploring. We're definitely looking into it.' So, we've heard that they might be connected to Roush, that they might be doing something with Ford Motor Company, but that kind of makes me wonder that Michael (Andretti) is probably not going to go with General Motors when the new engines come along next year, but everybody is assuming if Andretti goes to NASCAR, he'll just keep Danica. I don't think that's going to happen. I don't think that's going to happen at all. They're looking at opportunities to replace this GoDaddy money with some NASCAR money and I tell you what that's a huge deficit to make up when you lose somebody like GoDaddy because it's probably the second or third biggest sponsorship in IndyCar racing and that's going to be tough to replace."(SPEED)(6-17-2011)

More on Danica to NASCAR? SPEED.com open wheel reporter Robin Miller joined Steve Byrnes on NASCAR Race Hub on SPEED Thursday evening to discuss Danica Patrick and Andretti Autosport among other things. Following is the transcript in part from the interview;
On whether rumors are true that Danica Patrick is headed to NASCAR fulltime:
Miller: "We've been saying for six months that she's gone. I don't think anyone in IndyCar thinks that she's going to be around. I think everyone is resigned to the fact that IMG is going to take her to NASCAR. Where she lands in NASCAR, I think that's what is going to be interesting. Tony Stewart lately has been saying, 'I'd really like to see her come here. She's got a lot of potential.' I think that potential might be assigned to that GoDaddy paycheck, which is pretty big."(SPEED)(6-17-2011)

IMS (Brickyard) Hosting NNS race next year?

"Indianpolis Motor Speedway considering taking Nationwide race: An Indianapolis Motor Speedway spokesman Tuesday confirmed talks to bring a sports car race to the facility's road course in 2012 during NASCAR's Brickyard 400 weekend, but he said no agreement is in place. The biggest obstacle: converting the facility from a road course configuration, which would be used for a Friday endurance race of Grand-Am's Rolex Series, to an oval for NASCAR on Saturday and Sunday. NASCAR owns Grand-Am, which would bring a title sponsor to cover the sanctioning fee estimated at $200,000. Also being discussed is a move of the weekend's Nationwide Series race, which comes with a guaranteed check of about $700,000 due to the television contract, from Lucas Oil Raceway to IMS. IMS officials have been looking for ways to bolster the Brickyard weekend amid declining attendance.(Indianapolis Star)(6-15-2011)"

Red Bull leaving NASCAR? Multiple people familiar with the decision say Red Bull plans to leave NASCAR at the end of this season. Those familiar with the decision also say a team official traveled to Michigan Speedway last weekend to inform industry leaders of Red Bull's decision. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because an official announcement has not been made to team employees. Red Bull is both the owner and sponsor of the two-car NASCAR team. The team has struggled since its 2007 entry into NASCAR. Red Bull also owns a pair of two-car Formula One teams. Current points leader Sebastian Vettel is the reigning world champion and has won five of seven Grand Prix races this season.(Associated Press)(6-20-2011)

Would the ROI not be much better if they sponsor a Hendrick, Gibs or Roush driver instead of an own team?

I think they realize the Nascar demographic is not the Red Bull demographic.
