I hope they can get the sponsorship to run 4 cars. PC has such an amazing personality and his driving is getting better too :)

The man knows how make a qualifying lap like no other!! Sure hope it works out for him.

I'm telling you he qualifies great! Maybe he can get a Nationwide ride if nothing else and move back up! That stinks for him big time.

Sadler should be out the door. Reed S is not an improvement over Carpentier. Give Carpentier another year and watch out!

From what I'm hearing if GEM can get a full sponsorship for RS then they will run 4 cars even if the 4th car isn't fully funded. I'm also hearing that the Army will be on RS car and if that's the case than maybe they will have all 4 cars up and running. I hope so because I really like PC, he's one of the good guys.

Of course if the Army goes to GEM where does that leave DEI and the 8? Right now DEI doesn't have a sponsor for the 01 and if the Army leaves than DEI will have 2 cars without sponsorship.

I also heard that RCR might be trying to work out a deal to buy the 01 for the owner points so he can use them on the 33. That would leave DEI down to 3 cars and only 2 of them fully sponsored.

Of course these are only things that I have heard and I am nowhere near in the "know".

Did he? I though he qualified 5. I didn't notice he went to the back.
