Now let see 1+1+1/2= 2 1/2 . That is true, so my question is where did all the four team talk come from? What do they know now that they did't know a month ago?
Each team only had one full season sponsor with Ganassi having an extra half.
This whats going to happen:
Martin Truex Jr.: #1 Chevy, sponsor by Bass pro.
Juan Pablo Montoya: #42 Chevy, with Target as a main sponsor and Wrigley as an associate sponsor.
Aric Almirola: #8, part time with some of Wrigley sponsorship.
This two car team won't be very helpful to either party.
According to some experts the data needed to compete fairly against the big boys has to be more substantial than what a two car team can provide. You must have four teams to get the data you need to gain an edge over the competition.
You will notice all the four cars teams will be on top in the first 10 races this year.
I have high hopes for Juan in 2009, and I hope I'm wrong, but with only two full time cars running I only Truex Jr. improving, because he has no real changes, he drives the same car, and etc.
As for Motoya this is like starting all over again a new car, new engine, and I'm sure this Chevy handles different than the Dodge's.
Again, I hope I'm wrong about Juan. I wish him the best of luck.
