So if Chip sells his team to Menard

I wonder if that is the beginning of the end of JPM in Cup as well? What a shake up that would be.
JPM leaves I would assume his son would leave RCR to race for his Dad (who sponsors him) Which would probably send Kurt to RCR. The dominoes would start flying if this rumor becomes true.

That would be a good day for NASCAR as far as I'm concerned? What the heck has he done to earn a solid sponsor in all this time?

For one, Jayski's had this story:

"Chip Ganassi selling to John Menard? One of the hottest stories in the garage Thursday was intense speculation that veteran team owner Chip Ganassi may be considering selling his two-team NASCAR operation to John Menard. Menard, who owns the Midwestern home improvement chain Menards, is a long-time racer, and he is currently sponsoring his son Paul's NASCAR team, part of the Richard Childress organization. Ganassi and Childress are both Chevy men. Childress supplied Ganassi's two teams (with #1-Jamie McMurray and #42-Juan Pablo Montoya) with engines until this season, when Ganassi switched to Hendrick motors. Of the sport's top eight team owners, Ganassi this season ranks seventh in finishes. Of particular disappointment is Montoya, who is averaging a 27th place finish; Montoya's last top-10 was at Michigan last June, and his last tour win was at Watkins Glen in the summer of 2010. McMurray's seventh at Martinsville last weekend was his best finish in over a year.(MikeMulhern.net)(4-12-2013)"

Re: So if Chip sells his team to Menard

Did any one say why Chip would want to sell his team to Menard ...what about Andretti? He wants to start a cup team. Didn't see this coming, hmmmmm..... :roll: That's probably why JPM has picked up his pace...........interesting, very interesting!
