Chip Ganasis probably thinking he made a big mistake right abut now.... In private ofcourse.

I doubt it. Chip has alot of money, but I don't think he has the money to run a car out of pocket for a year.

Ganassi was backed into a corner. He had no choice in the matter. If you want someone who should be having some regrets over the situation.. Look to Ford Motor Company. If what Tony Stewart said is true, that they blocked him from bringing Larson in. That's who should have some regrets.

Cranking out his third win of 2020, Larson won Sunday‘s NASCAR Cup Series race at Sonoma Raceway. He held off teammate, reigning champion and road-course ace Chase Elliott in overtime, taking the checkered flag by .614 seconds.

Elliott took second, which marked Hendrick Motorsports‘ fourth 1-2 finish in a row — tying a NASCAR record set by Carl Kiekhafer Racing in 1956.

I really want to see how the HMS team performs on the mile and half tracks. Five of the Chase tracks are those types.

Agree, you got to believe Chase has got a few more wins coming. Looks like he and Larson are going to be battling it out down the line.

There is too much talent without a ride to let Larson back in.
Well this is kind of fun to go back a year later....

Yep, I was definitely wrong about that. Winning trumps all.

I'm still curious as to why Ford said no and Chevy said yes. Maybe it was Rick pulling in favors.

Or the fact that Ford is known to trip all over itself to prove its "wokeness"... evidently GM not so much. Or maybe it's just good old fashioned decency and common sense prevailed.

That and $$$. For instance, Dale Jr. was not a better driver than Kyle Busch. But Jr. brought marketing dollars, merchandise sales, etc... to HMS. Kellogg was leaving Kyle at the end of season, so he lost his sponsor which made it easier for Rick to make the switch, since Jr had Budweiser. Rick took a chance that money would trump winning. (Although Jr did win, just not as much as Kyle of course).

If anyone thinks that professional sports is anything other than winning and money, then they are not following very closely.

Jr didn't bring Bud to HMS.


Bud went from DEI to Kasey Kahne at Evernham and then to Harvick where they basically remain now under the Busch banner.


In fact, Junior TOOK Bud FROM Hendrick.. Remember, they sponsored the 25 (50 in 1998) up through 1999 before moving to be Junior's primary.


Honestly, seems like there was another stop i'm forgetting in there.
