I remember reading Gene Haas saying something to the affect that he had no interest in putting another sponsor on Kurt's car until that car was in the winner's circle at least once. He wants some of that money for himself.

That's what I remember hearing him say, too. He wants a car in victory lane with Haas Automation on the hood - nobody else.

You apparently don't know Gene Haas very well, he is about as greedy as they come...remember this is same the miserable S.O.B. that signed Kurt without Tony's knowledge and didn't tell him until after the fact. He also did it while Tony was in the hospital. Talk about dirty, underhanded, and low. This is not a business partner I would want to have, one who goes around making deals behind his partners back without his knowledge.

in all fairness haas tried the year before to get him, so im sure tony even knew then what was about to happen

As much as Tony, Kurt, and Kevin don't get along...I see a lot of inner team rivalry going on where Kurt is wrecking them or they are wrecking Kurt. I also see a lot of team meetings over the winter to smooth things over before February.

I also don't remember Haas going after Kurt in 2012, not saying it didn't happen, just saying I don't remember it. So much stuff goes on during a year that it is hard to keep track of it all.

I can't remember which reporter for NASCAR out of Charlotte said that Napa would probably not sponsor anything in 2014 and would revaluate sponsorship for 2015.... If I can find the article I will post it.

I would have no idea about numbers, financial logistics, or anything really to speak of on the matter that is pertinent in terms of sponsoring a series in the money realm, and I don't even know if NAPA would have the capacity to do so....but I still think NAPA would be a great title sponsor for the (now) Nationwide Series. They've already shown that they have integrity by separating themselves from what is (or may be just perceived as) a bad situation. If they were to go ahead and put their name in front of the "up and comers" in NASCAR, I just think it would bode very well for them. Of course it would cost a tremendous amount more to do so, but I think the payoff would be worth it.
Just my opinion, and it may not even be feasible.
