J.R. Fitzpatrick started his rookie campaign with TRG Motorsports, for the 2009 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series schedule.
Back in April, TRG cut back Fitzpatrick schedule, they have replaced him in the last two races and apparently they must have released.
Since I did see his name listed in a article announcing that Cale Gale would be running the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series.
Which is sad to see, since he ran such a great race at Daytona, nearly won had his teams pit strategy work. Unfortunately seems they became impatient with his learning curve as a rookie.
Sometimes out of bad things, something good happens hence my headline and it's exciting news.
According to TheStar.com, it appears that Fitzpatrick has come to a agreement with Kevin Harvick Inc. to race this season.
An official announcement will be made this week, which will disclose what the deal is, which series and how many races.
It's believed to involve a unknown number of truck races and include a few Nationwide Series races. It may involve being a part-time teammate to Cale Gale in the NCTS.
I was able to see Fitzpatrick race at the Daytona truck race, he's a tremendously talented driver, and to quote myself.
Give him time to develop, I said after the Daytona race, he has the potential down the road to take TRG to Sprint Cup.
Hm, it makes me wonder KHI has Cale Gale, now J.R. Fitzpatrick, they maybe working on something with Kelly Bires all three are young talents, could they be polishing up these gems and getting them ready in two or three years for Sprint Cup.
Could down the road, NASCAR see a new powerhouse team emerge being KHI, with a lineup of Happy, Gale, Fitzpatrick and Bires and affiliated with RCR.
I will be posting a follow up to this story, with all the details on the deal involving Fitzpatrick and KHI.
