Luckily you are not a team owner. Why would a top tier team want Biffle, who is 46 years old to take over on the 10 car? I agree with dumping Danica (although she does bring in $$$ for sponsorship)...she will be lucky to win a rain delay race.

But there are several top talent young drivers that will win quickly in a top tier team, such as Alex Bowman.

Face it, the Biff is done. It's possible to see him squeak out a race somewhere, but he won't be competitive with today's drivers and certainly will never make the the final four of the Chase. Youth is where it's at.

Yes Bowman would be a better choice but no way is Hendrick going to allow another Chevy driver to move over to Ford especially Stewart Haas.

Next year SH will be racing Hendrick chassis design with Ford power and sheet metal.

He's in the Paul Menard class of drivers. Average driver with no charisma, but lots of money.


In other news, Bowyer is suing HScott Motorsports for 2.223 million because of missed payments. An HScott representative called the lawsuit "frivolous" lol.

Yeah, Dillon has money to drive, so yeah, meh. If Bowyer didn't see that coming he hasn't been paying attention.

Wha?! Wow, didn't see that one coming. Interesting. Though there's no way they can continue sponsoring an individual or car/team. So...the Monster Cup?

Certainly going to give a new meaning and look of the trophy girls.

Gone will be the look of the HS cheerleaders in driving suits.

In will be the look of the stripper bar babes in hot pants and plenty of cleavage.

Not saying there is anything wrong with the new look, just sayin.

They're continuing to Sponsor Kurt Busch next year, at least.

There's exclusivity similar to what Nextel got.. Existing sponsors are grandfathered, but they can't move teams or change names. Like how Alltel was allowed to stay, but when they were bought by Verizon had to leave or keep the Alltel name on the car.

I think NOS might be an associate with Kyle in Cup.. Shouldn't affect the Xfinity sponsorship at all. 5 hour Energy is questionable as to how they would be classified.. I imagine Monster gets to make that call and will say they can't change teams, which could throw a wrinkle into the plans for Jones.

I'm guessing it'll just be known as the Monster Energy Series.
