Grubb would be a good move. Not sure if he would be a good match for Smoke. But he certainly would be a great match for Newman.

A guy like Robbie Reiser would be a better match for Smoke.

I read an article once that Darian said he'd work for Rick Hendrick as long as they'd have him, didn't matter what job it was. He left Petty Enterprise because he said he wanted to work for the best. Money can change even the best of people's minds.

I LOOOOOOOVE Darian, any racer (IMO) would be lucky to have him-he's all about supporting his driver. And the engineering degree doesn't hurt either. I think he got the shaft more than anyone when Jr. came over, so it wouldn't suprise me if he did leave.

I heard that Tony may add a third car and Casey is on the short list of drivers to get that ride.

He's in talks with RCR. Just needs a sponsor.

Reports are that sponsorship is there, they just have to work out the details. He's supposedly going into Bowyers ride, then Bowyer will pilot the General Mills car.

The odds are more likely that Casey will be at Penske next year, from all I've read!

I read the Penske rumor only yesterday, it's not old news. Casey has not made his final decision as to which way to go, as if it mattered, lol!

Casey was forced to make a lateral move with the addition of Jr., from piloting the #25 to the #5, Darian was demoted from CC to engineer in order to make room for Eury, even after he'd proven his worth several times. But that's JMO. We both atleast agree to the fact that Darian does indeed rock.
