He's released from Nationwide but running a cup car instead. He wins.

Coleman's departure from Baker Curb had nothing to do with "BRAND LOYALTY" and nothing "COST" him his ride. He signed with both Hall of Fame and Baker Curb last Fall and both teams were obviously aware of the manufacturer conflict at that time.

With his crew chief resigning in the middle of the race on national TV last week, recent team layoffs, and not to mention an opportunity to drive Cup -- it was the perfect time and logical choice for Coleman to make the switch... Who wouldn't?

I am confused as to why the writer of this article chose to put a negative slant on the situation.

Brad comes across as a class act and I wish him great success in the Cup Series.

I wish! No gas prices have made me a homebody. At least I got to go to the Texas race missed Kentucky as well this year. I think we're going to Dismores new castle track for the go kart championship races. That should be fun. My little cousin runs in the series, lol. How are you?

Doing good here. I worked in New Castle during the summers when I was in high school. There was always something going on there it seemed.
Should be a good race today. Can't wait.

Take care

Why is Ken schrader driving the 96 car? I thought Coleman left the nationwide races to take J.J'S RIDE IN THE 96 CAR. SEEMS AS IF THAT WAS SHORT LIVED...
