I am looking forward to the PC tommrow. The things i exspect to hear about is
1) Christan and the ABC deal with HotWheels
2) Kyles Sponcer Harley Davidson/Coke
3) Bobby hamilton to drive 44
4) Kyles Retirement at the end of 2003 may run more racesbeyond
I hope #4 does not ahppen but that what i think unless kyle thinks that one of the other two cars will be empty after next year.
PettyBenson, I like your take on the situation, but one question. Why would Coke decide to sponsor one driver when they have been very successful with the CocaCola Family of Drivers format? I don't see that happening, but I absolutely could be wrong.
But on another note, I would be happy to see Kyle go out on a better note than he has the past few years. It is really heartwarming to hear how much the other drivers support his and Patty's salute to Adam and the Victory Junction Camp. He is truly a good soul!
It would pretty much have to be a fourth team. I cant believe that they would ditch Nadue, or that team. And I really doubt that they would not only rid of Nadue but then cut that team down to 15 races a year. 4th team looks good to me.
Ye si think they will have a 4th car for those 15 races but when he moves up he might take the 45 ride.
and about Coke i think that they along with HD will sponcer a car and maybe not Coca-cola will be on it but maybe one of the other brands Coke has. COke has a ton of money and they still could spend as much as they do already forthe Coke Family and still more to be a 2nd sponcer on Kyles car.
Christan signed a 3 year deal and will run 10-15 Buch-and 10-15 Cup races and most Speedway Arca races just like Ryan Newman. The way it sounds to me is that they will run 2003 with the limited schedual and possiblt full time or again part time in 2004,
I think PE will run 4 cars when he does those 15 races but when he moves up full time it will stay a 3 car team with him driving the 45 in 2004 or 2005
Just glad that NASCAR got this overrated do nothing driver; two CART wins in seven years; yea he's Mr. Excitment. Petty can't find talent, Grissom?? Kyle and Chirstian have one thing in common -- living off of their last names.
