It would be a great move for Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing to get a young, promising, and very likable Brad Keselowski.

Bass Pro Shops would be happy with this all-American kid; squeaky clean, well spoken, sort of reminds you of the neighbor kid—you know the good one.

He is only 24 years old, hungry for a ride, and a Cup winner. What else could Chip Ganassi ask for?

You may be asking, what about Aric Almirola? Well, let me tell you, it has been reported EGR still wants him in the No. 8 car with a sponsor.

Apparently they've got that in the works.

Juan Pablo Montoya, Brad Keselowski, and Aric Almirola would make a very good team.

The improvements that have been made week after week by EGR on this new chassis and Childress engines are just amazing.

Montoya will even make the chase.

Let's be honest here: EGR has really become a one-car team. I don't expect much help from a lame duck driver.

If you had a choice to help an old team or the new one who gave you a multi-year contract, what would you do? I'll be honest: I'm going with the one who butters my bread. Agree?

EGR needs to work something out with Martin Truex Jr. and Bass Pro to facilitate his exit as soon as possible.

EGR has a car in the Chase and they need to get him some help.

Brad Keselowski? well that is just wishful thinking on my part. I'm sure he has too many commitments in 2009 to come to EGR.

Great record in cup, six starts with one win, and three top tens. It don't get much better than that, does it?

I'm sure most fans wish Truex great successes. Good luck to him, he seemed like a great guy. Goodbye and good luck.

Now, Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing can move on to the business of getting Juan Pablo Montoya in the Chase.
