Anyone thought about THIS ??

I've heard Mark Martin's name mentioned as a possible investor in a sale of Red Bull Racing. What would happen if MM were to become part owner of the defunct RBR team? Would it be a long-shot to think that if he WERE to buy in, that he might talk the rest of the investment group into selling to SHR? That would give him a ride for next year as well as answer ALOT of questions as to where Danica is gonna get all her equipment. Would it be that hard to convert all the equipment in that shop to Chevy specs? All of a sudden, SHR has an engine/chassis department and can stand on its own without HMS' help. I mean it is newer machinery and would REALLY make it easy for SHR to be a 4 car team.......................anyone out here in left field with me ?? 8-) :shock: :lol:

Like where you're going with this MW,who says yah have to build Toyota engines with the machinery and aren't all the basic chassis dimensions and body templates near the same or being COT actually the same with differant engines and nameplates? The thought of this is great,or are we just dreamin the same dream? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Well......I don't know how much of this is "dream" or how much COULD actually have some merit. I've read in various publications that Jay Frey has been talking with MM about it. I've got a friend with his ears to all the walls and he's a pretty reliable fella. See, his daughter in law is a cousin to the guy that drives the Red Bull transport. I'll give him a call in the next couple of daze. Maybe something's gonna come of it after all.....we gotta have a little hope for diversity, huh ??

Thanks Doc.....I wouldn't go so far as to say that, but Thanx anyway. I have a funny feeling that something is gonna happen that is VERY unexpected...cross your fingers that its something like this ;)

I wasn't talkin' about goin' outside the team to get cars. If MM can talk the investors into selling to SHR, they'd have their OWN SET-UP and wouldn't need anything from anyone. That's what I was talkin' about.

I think Mark would make a good owner.
Haven't heard or checked anything out about that though, haven't had time to surf around really. Keep us posted if you find out anything.

Re: Anyone thought about THIS ??

...two BIG issues... 1) Would Tony and Gene want to buy in...BIG expense. 2) That would leave you with ANOTHER car that needs sponsorship, which = 1 and 2 halves(1/2 Ryan, 1/2 Danica and full on the 4th.) needing sponsorship...not a good economic climate for sponsorship $$$$.

That being said, I'd LUV to see them a fully independent team. :D :D

...is that a breadstick or are you just happy to see me?

We Oklahomans have had a lot of wide fires around here lately, so I'm going to throw a little water on this subject. I heard that Mark Martin wants nothing to do with ownership of a cup team.
