Good for him, glad to see it, don't let the garage door hit you in the.....oh loosen up! I'm just kidding.

I feel he's making a good choice, not the best choice, but he most be getting a heck of a monetary deal along with a multiple year contract .

Remember where you heard this, he will not have better equipment than the Childress engine he has in the Bass-Pro car.

Time will tell the story, but I’m afraid the problem with the number 55 car is more then just the driver, it could also be the car,

I just don’t think Mr. Truex jr. will make that much of a difference in the seat of that car.

I still feel Truex jr should of just concentrated on this year and work with this team, they may end up with Joe Gibbs in 2010 with a Hendrick, Steward-Hass type of deal.

He may regret this move later on. Maybe not.

I understand the “official announcement” will be this Tuesday.

I hope it will be effective immediately, so they can put Aric in that car, I know that is not going to happen due to sponsorship commitments with Bass- Pro, but I can hope.

Juan Pablo Montoya in the chase! How about that!

Where can I comment?
