A Little (very little) More Insight

Fri Jun 29, 2012 7:08 pm

Ok, they were talking in the booth during qualifying (yes, when aren't they yapping?) and they said that Matt went to Jack and told him he was leaving and that Jack was surprised. I would hope they wouldn't say that unless it was true being as they had a few thousand people watching. I don't know that it matters, but I'm glad Matt took control over his own destiny and didn't get booted in favor of Ricky (who I do like, by the way). 8-)

This is from the NASCAR website. Looks to me like Matt is going to JGR... I don't think Jack would consider Dodge "the dark side"... Oh please say it's so :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Kudos to Kenseth. I do indeed think he saw some handwriting on the wall OR was approached by a Gibbs who gave him something to think about. I think Jack was somewhat blind sided. His comments to Moody suggested so on Speedway this afternoon.

Let's not forget the Ross factor too. JGR has one heckuva development program and Matt may be looking to help his son get into a good ride too

Well wherever Matt ends up I hope he will be happy. Now he does not have to worry about being attacked by a so-called team mate or being dropped without any notice because Jack wanted Ricky in Cup.

I didn't think about the "Ross" factor, but that makes a lot of sense.

I wonder if he does go to JGR, if they'll have an iron-on head shot of Matt that I can put on my old 20 car t-shirts? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Tony sponsored Ross Kenseth in the very beginning of his racing career. At first I thought that might be one reason Matt might come to SHR. I still HOPE that he does. But more and more I think this Andretti deal is Matt's. If it is....... I think this is such a great opportunity for Matt.... for now and in his future. Good guys do finish first!
Jack seemed very sad today. :( He is hard to read. I think he saw his big fish just swim away. I almost .....almost felt sorry for him for a minute.

...consensus OPINION is JGR...had a compelling podcast on Rowdy about it, still a guess...but, they made a lot of sense.

well it never dawned on me but when matt said it was a new team, he couldnt have meant JGR and the 4th team, and them keeping joey, it would be nice, just one a driver or a owner was a blabber mouth, and spilled all the beans by accident....
