Hornish coming back ?? Penske said recently he'd like to have Sam back some day. We'll see what shakes out I guess. Maybe Reed Sorenson??

Re: Kurt Busch FIRED By Penske Racing

Well that could be a bad business decision considering the time of year, but I will tell you this. Penske has risen up on sticking to your morals barometer. Good job Roger.

Re: Kurt Busch FIRED By Penske Racing

i can see slammin sammy back in cup, he needs to stay in the NW series, something that should have been done when he first started, he improved a tad and actually won, so let him stay there and get confidence, dont bring him back up, just because that week, he ran a top ten.

Re: Kurt Busch FIRED By Penske Racing

I'm not sure if I'm shocked with the fact Penske got rid of Kurt Busch. This guy is in his 30's so what goes? This has been quite a year for this dude as his marriage fell apart, he's rubbed more people the wrong way and embarressed Dr. Punch which which wasn't necessary. Some people have to learn the hard way and maybe Kurt doesn't have a clue. I doubt he'll ever have a plum ride like he had at Rousch and Penske. Wonder if bumper cars would suit him.....

Re: Kurt Busch FIRED By Penske Racing

I have to wonder if Kurt was trying to keep his job by announcing he was seeing a sport psychologist. I also wonder how much came from sponsor pressure. Shell has not been able to use him like they did Harvick because of fall out from kissing gf in victory lane when no one knew he was separated from his wife(well a few of us knew but most didn't) and his weekly foul mouthed radio tirades.

Re: Kurt Busch FIRED By Penske Racing

Guessing it will be Trevor Bayne and hopefully a certain crew chief.

Re: Kurt Busch FIRED By Penske Racing

Sounds like Penske is trying to walk things back a bit regarding the firing of Busch in this article
http://wap.gotvnetworks.com/nascar_arti ... sIds=19929

guess we will all have to wait until tomorrow afternoon to hear what Penske has to say on the matter.

Re: Kurt Busch FIRED By Penske Racing

They're saying it's not official yet so it may be just a tactic that Penske is using to wake up Kurt. We'll know soon after their meeting.

Also, I heard they're considering Dave Ragan (YAY!!) as his replacement?

Re: Kurt Busch FIRED By Penske Racing

i have read in 3 stories it will be David ragan, which will be cool, he improved a bunch since last year, and if it is him, he wont get lost in the shuffle like he did at rfr, i think lizard raised a good point about maybe kurt trying to save his job, have to see how that plays out, makes sense tho. one thing i took from last week in vegas is that KYLE can be a very likable person, more so than KURT. KYLE just needs to get out of his head about dumping someone, he can still be a bad boy without doing that, but if he showed more of what i seen last week, i could be a fan.

Re: Kurt Busch FIRED By Penske Racing

Kind of like what Matt said about his choice of drivers of who he would pick to take out on the last lap in a race...not Vickers...why, he would not be up front. :lol:

So it is now official Kurt is out at Penske, I love how they tried to make it sound mutual. Anyone who believes that also believed Vickers when he said that running Kenseth over was not payback.

So now Kurt is looking for a fresh start :shock: , am wondering where he thinks that will come from. He also said he needs to find a way to put the fun back into racing, maybe that sports psychologist can help with that or maybe he will go over to NHRA for the year since he's got his license.

Re: Kurt Busch FIRED By Penske Racing

This doesn't surrpise me. Kurt is a fine driver and a champion but he just screws himself over and over. Yes he is 33 years old so he is still kind of young, but he is in his 30s at the same time! He should have matured by now and not have to see a sports pyschcologist.

He will get a decent ride. His chocies are to beg Jack to hire him back, to try to get a sponsor and go to Childress, and to try and get investors and to to Red Bull. I could see him back at Roush after Ricky Rudd came back to PYR in 2007.

And it lookas like Ragan will have a one off with Penske next year kind of like Stremme I guess. I wish they would just hire Allgaier back and just put him in the 22.
