Kyle and Martin leave JGR and drive for BAM Racing with Dodge.
Honestly I'm not sure there's a new manufacturer coming. But IF one does, I understand Roush's history with Ford but regardless Brad is the guy I could see taking that leap to try to grow RFK.

You really think they'd give up roush-yates engines?

Was listening to one of the shows on Sirius and they brought up a good point. Do you think Kyle has as many fans and sells as much merchandise if he's not in the M&M's car? I think the reality is that a pay cut is coming no matter who he's driving for next season.

Purely anecdotal evidence, but a vast majority of KyBu gear I see at the track is younger fans (kids) with M&M's gear. The rest are, by and large, trolls amd frontrunners who pull for him because he wins a lot and it pisses off fans of other drivers, especially Elliott and the like. Again, PURELY ANECDOTAL on my part. I have no evidence whatsoever other than my (admittedly biased) observations.
