This guy has been passed around more than the last bottle of moonshine at a NASCAR infield party. (Or maybe my old girlfriend...oh loosen-up, I'm just kidding)
Has this driver finally found a place to hang his helmet? Is it really a done deal? Is it written in stone and tied down to the floor?
I hope so! Now what? Who drives the No. 41 car at Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing?
Well, let's see who is still unemployed (That I would like to see in this team):
1) Dave Blaney
2) A.J. Allmendinger
3) Kyle Petty
All those drivers would be on the half-season sponsor car.
Petty has an ally in the Earnhardt-Ganassi team. Felix Sabates wants him to have the ride, and has made it public in the past. (Check out my article Kyle Petty in the No. 41 car-Not a Bad Choice.)
"Kyle will win races. I am convinced of that 150 percent. Chip doesn't believe it, so there's nothing I can do about it." That was a Sabates quote at a media event last year.
The war of wills might be at play here, maybe Sabates can win one and Petty get a chance to race.
