NASCAR drivers are no different than the athletes in other major sports and who can blame them. Go for the most money you can make because you don't know how long your career is going to last.

No such thing as team loyalty in Baseball, Football, Basketball.In NASCAR there is no such thing as brand loyalty among drivers. Brand loyalty belong to the fans just like team loyalty belongs to the fans of stick and ball sports.

I will be an Edwards supporter as long as he drives for Ford but when he moves on so will I to the next guy who occupies the seat Edwards left.

NASCAR has always been a sport where brand loyalty among fans has been paramount and if and when Carl leaves Ford so will a lot of his fans.

I see this happening. Home Depot is looking for a stronger spokesman for the money it's paying Gibbs and is tired of the beating it has been taking for the last five years by Lowes and the 48.

Not sure how Edwards and Kyle Busch will mesh though.
