Too bad things didn't work out. If I was Hendrick I would look at signing Newman.

Looking more and more like MM & BK will share the ride. Guess silly season is offically underway.

I feel bad for Casey, he's been committed to HMS but he just hasn't cut it, so probably MM and BK will share the 5 car next year.

If Newman leaves Penske where he nor anyone else will ever win a championship he will go to Hendrick, Rousch, or Gibbs. The rest are no better than Penske.

Not surprised Casey got cut. I wish him well, though. He is a nice guy.

I don't know that Hendrick would go with MM and BK. He's in it for championships, and part timers can't provide that. I could see Smoke signing with Hendrick and Jr maybe starting his cup team with MM and BK sharing the ride to get him started. I wouldn't mind to see Smoke at Hendrick ;) My two favorite drivers on the same team? What's not to love about that idea?

I just really feel it will be Tony Stewart to Hendrick in the 5 next year. What a winning group of drivers! Now if we can just get all of them to start hitting that finish line in front of everyone...hint..hint...Jeff!
