Sorry, GEM gave him his walking papers this afternoon. Seems he and a team engineer got into a confrontation over qualifying for Talledaga and GEM sent him packing. Shame of it is, even though he didn't qualify for Talledaga on time his time was better than Kasey's or Elliott's.

Man, I hope A.J. drives that dodge like he stole it in those last 5 races. I hope he finishes in the top 5 every week and leads a ton of laps and sits on a pole or two. That would just be great. Make Red Bull suck eggs!

Man, I'm PISSED about this. You let his crew chief PUBLICLY bash him (for something HE had no control over...everyone knows that @'Dega!) and then give HIM the walking papers? Uh, uh. I don't think so. I figured it was coming though, especially after that blow-up.

I hope someone gives him a chance next year. I don't even care what series, just as long as I can see him every week. I hope he takes the offer of the Nationwide ride, if he can't get a Cup ride.

I am glad that AJ is the one taking over for him though. At least it's someone I like...my heart won't hurt as much. While I want AJ to show Red Bull what they're missing, at the same time I don't want him showing GEM what they've been missing either!

**to clarify, series meaning Cup, Nationwide, or Trucks. Not back to open wheel or anything. I want him staying in NASCAR!

Man, it's kind of bitter-sweet. I really like Patrick and I don't want to see him leave earlier than what was already planned. But AJ, in my opinion, is pretty awesome. I think he just might show Red Bull what they've let go. By the way, does AJ have a ride for next year? Or could he possibly be the 4th car for GEM, if they do get one?

I have nothing against AJ but I hope he fails tp quailfy for all his races in the 10. GEM racing has made a mistake by letting Carpentier go. I feel giving the same amount of seat time as Kahne or Sadler this guy would dominate. Go luck next year with Reed, GEM will need it.

He definitely got screwed in this whole deal.

Yeah Nicole, I'm in the same position as you! It's definitely bittersweet.
