Cpt. Moose should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
#28

I was a big Davey Allison fan. When he died, I kinda stuck with the ole #28 Texaco/Havoline car. Partially as a tribute to him, and partially becuase I liked the way the Yates team operated. Then all of the sudden this year happned. Chevron Bought Tex and decided that they didn't want to pay as much for sponsorship as they were (about Half of what UPS pays for DJ's car). yates decided he wasn't going to put up with a sponsor going soft so he let them go. And when Rudd and Yates decided to part ways, stuff got really nasty. Thats where I lost track of everything.

Here's what I know:
Rudd will drive for the Wood Bros. in the Motorcraft Car.
Elliot Sadler will take Rudd's place, but the Car will now be the #38 M&Ms car.
Chip ganassi picked up Chev/Tex (all I can figure is someone at Chevron likes Dodge, becuase it otherwise makes no sense).

My Question is: will the #28 be snatched up along with the Chev/Tex sponsor? Or will yates hold on to it for when he helps his son start up his team in 04 or 05? Personally, I don't think the Number should leave Yates, both due to the history and to the fact that yates, not the Sponsor, should control it.

I thought I had heard that the #28 number was going to the Rudd's Wood Brothers ride but this would require negotiation and payment to Robert Yates.

Well, I'd rather it be vacant than be snatched up by Ganassi or some second-rank team.

Probably wrong though.

Whats interesting is that Haas-Carter couldnt pick up Texaco especially with their long term association on the CART side.

12ish mil would do that team very nicely and based on the projected Discover exposure numbers of the partial season they ran, had they done the entire season they'd have drawn even with Havoline in the value stakes. But I heard there was a conflict of interest with the son-in-law of one of the Haas guys working at Ganassi, so Haas-Carter/Pegasus Promotions decided not to go after it.

Well, at least the #28 isn't going to Chip. I can hold out hope that Yates will try to field a #28 car in the future. As to Chevaco and Ginassi, they can have each other

last time I checked, Yates didn't sign over the car. He just gave the driver and sponsor their walking papers and then started a new #38 car. New driver, new chief, new sponsor, new cars. But just becuase Ginassi's in bed with Chevaco now doesn't mean he gets the #28. Thats not how it works. So sit your Minardi butt down and watch Jamie run a car with Chevaco, but it ain't gonna have the #28 on the side.
