Well, some of lead to think that with the signing of Ryan Truex may lead to the signing of Martin Jr away from DEI to MWR to replace Mikey in the 55 Napa car. I dont see it happening as first off Bass Pro has a great relationship with Truex and i believe would follow him wherever he decided to go, whether DEI contract is still there or not, and i think Truex has a great relationship with Chevy, however, i could see another manufacturer getting him.
Bottom line is i dont think how MWR is running is going to be enough to lead him away from DEI although there are better teams that i think could and will such as Gibbs or RCR. I still could see Gibbs hire him to replace Logano or for a fourth car, or RCR could hire him to replace Mears or maybe Harvick depending on how Harvick does as he hasnt won a race in over two years.
If Mikey is lucky enough to keep Napa, he'll end up teaming Reutimann up with Napa, as he's improved and Aarons is a one year deal, as they didnt even want to run the whole season with David, but i still predict that Napa can and will find a better deal with a better team, maybe on Gibbs future fourth team, or maybe even replace Jack Daniels on 07 car, as i believe this is their last season and RCR tried to replace them last season with UPS. Ive predicted that Mears will drive the #32 Napa Chevy for RCR next season.
