Too cool... Just wondering if he may end up being a 3rd car for SHR in 2010. Maybe run a few races in 2009 after Smoke & RN get everything settled. Just my thoughts.

I thought he's taking the 5 car. Mark has it for one year. Then he's out.

MM has it for 2 year. 1 full-time and 1 part-time. I'm not sure they would have talked BK out of taking a full time Penski ride if he would have to wait 2 full years before being offer a full time ride... I'm thinking LC will share the 5 with MM the 2nd year. These are only my thoughts. I am in no way of being in the know.

Would you wait 2 year for a HMS car or on year for a Penski car?
Myshelf,I'd wait.
But, Alot can happen in two years.

Who knows by then Jr may have a sprint cup team. This stuff is to hard to attempt to figure out.

Personally, I think that Brad is going to get the 5 car after Mark retires. Since he is Junior's guy, I would think that Junior would want him on the same team, even though SHR is somewhat a Hendrick satelite team. On the other hand, who knows how much longer Jeff will be driving. Maybe Brad is the heir apparent. Anyway, I can't wait for his debut!

Ok, so this is just me thinking out loud (ok, typing out loud). Jr said that if the NW series goes to a COT type car than he may have to think about moving JMS to Cup due to the costs. Well, it looks like they will be doing this in probably 2010. With Smoke having 2 cars at SHM and if they have a pretty successful year (which I think they will) and Jr has 2 NW cars then Jr buys out the Haas portion of SHM and it becomes Stewart/Earnhardt Jr Motorsports with a 4 car operation. BK becomes a full time driver and they pick up another driver maybe Truex since he only signed a 1 year extension. Then Landon Cassel shares the 5 car with MM.

Like I said this is just me thinking out loud.

I sure do like your thinking.....Junie
don't want the media bugging him about moving to sprint car racing. He said he would talk about that when he was ready and to leave that alone....
