Very interesting move. Accordng to NASCAR.com , Sorenson is the odd man out. Looks like team will be KK, ES, Menard and I'madinger You'readinger.

They will drive Fords and use RouschYates engines.

Makes you say "HUMMMMM ... "

Thats not what Bret Griffin has been saying over this time. He says that the equipment is all the same, its just what each team does with it on race day that is different.

Kasey understands and prefers driving a car like the COT that has a loose off tendency, Elliott can't for what ever reason.

How interesting 2010 will be with Kasey who brought a lawsuit against FORD a few years back and Elliott who used a "contract loophole" to leave RYR for EMS!!!

I had on the ESPN NASCAR show (can't think of the name - NASCAR Today? NASCAR Now?) and they asked someone the KK v. Ford question and whoever they were interviewing (I think a Ford guy) said there would not be retribution for the lawsuit.

Sometimes payback is a b*^ch ...

It does seem that the drivers who can drive a really loose car do better. I still think that Kasey gets the better stuff but JMO.

I think Kasey gets better stuff than Elliott, AJ & Reed. Elliott is given quite a bit of "try it out" for the #9 team stuff during practice, etc. While they (RPM/Brett) can deny this all day long I have heard KK say it in interviews as well as Richard Petty.
wow

I'll be the first to call bull shit on this excuse.

Best Buy and Stanley would be throwing fits if any of this was even close to being true.

It will be interesting. Let's not forget about ES bringing a lawsuit against RPM. Mmmmmmm..........

If the only way these guys can keep their jobs (and sponsors) is to file lawsuits and look for loopholes - it's amazing there is even a NASCAR left. JMO.

pathetic tonight

So does WallDinger get better equipment too?

Have not heard one mention of the Dinger getting the new dodge engine or the lighter cars once this season.

Agree with you WOW! This was sad for the sponsors of ES car. Does anyone know what happened for him to be so far back right from the start? I am ready to give up on him. I just don't think he has the heart for it anymore and why didn't we see Amanda during the pre-show interviews? Her name was mentioned and I think she was standing right next to Elliott but moved away.THis whole situation is really weird. Can't believe that he will be with the new merger.

I'm with you Carole. They kept mentioning his name when they talked about the merger but I have my doubts (JUST my opinion of course).

I was also surprised they didn't show her during pre-race.

I guess we can only speculate re: who gets what equipment. I still don't know where I stand in the does the driver make the equipment or does the equipment make the driver argument.

As one of my friends says "You can't be a has been if you never were ..."

After final practice ES said he was having 'brake problems' but that they would be working on it and have them ready by race time...?..This is not a race where brakes are an afterthought! WHY didn't the 'team' workout the problems EARLY? Or was it simply the latest excuse? At Richmond, weak-bad-or no brakes = disaster (and it was for ES)

I hope your right. Elliott is way past his prime and it is time to move on and give a young who gives a sh*t about racing a chance at a cup ride.

Just another rumor but I saw where FOX sports writer Lee Montgomery said that McMurray may be the one to stay in new merger as the crew liked him better than ES. Something could still happen to ES for 2010 especially after the dismal showing in Richmond---his home state too!!!!!
