Rick wants sponsor money and the sponsors were leaving KK. It is as simple as that, nothing to do with a test car. Rick is not going to send 20 million dollars out the door to run a test car.Because 3 years of getting the testing car at Hendrick, and because Hendrick wanted the 20 year old. And as we can see from their performance this year was not about him but rather declining cars.
KK had everything he wanted when he came to HMS and they even hired Francis to keep him happy. The poor showing is all on KK, he has only himself to blame for his current status.
After this season he may leave Nascar because he won't have Rick paying his salary.
