If they get the "new" car problems worked out this year and they had sponsorship for everyone, then adding a 4th car next year would be the no brainer. There is an article on Nascar.com about Ryan and he says he just got the call from Tony this past Wednesday that he would not be coming back. He says he has not even talked to other teams. If he didn't know til this past Wed for sure, how could any of us?
Well they are talking 100% knew. I am sure they all knew before hand. Tony called out of respect making it official. Even if they had the sponsors. It was the moving around of personnel they said helped to hurt SHR as a whole. The new Gen 6 car didn't help I agree, but SHR is behind on certain parts of their personnel anyways. Then moving them all around only made it worse. No one should have expected a 4th team next year. I am not mad at SHR not going to a 4th team. Like I said I think that was the smart move.
I will be a little anxious while I don't know where Ryan is going, but after that is figured out is when I will either be happy he isn't on the 39 team anymore, or freaked out if he goes to some rag tag team. Time will tell what my demeanor becomes.
