Richard Petty Motorsports announced it will partner with Braun Racing to compete in five Nationwide Series races in 2009. The Petty team competed full-time in the series until this season when it chose to run a fourth Sprint Cup team. Team officials said the agreement with Braun Racing makes a successful return to the series more likely. Elliott Sadler will drive the Auto Value Bumper to Bumper car in the June 27 race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on ABC television while Kasey Kahne will race in the remaining four races. Kahne's schedule and paint schemes include:#9 McDonald's McCafe car in the July 3 Daytona race,#9 McDonald's car in the Aug. 21 Bristol race,#9 Fritos car in the Sept. 5 Atlanta race, and #43 Auto Value Bumper to Bumper car in the Oct. 16 Charlotte race.(PRM PR)(6-9-2009)

I found out today that Braun Racing runs Toyotas! Could this be a hint that RPM is looking to change to Toyota and this is just an audition to show how they might run in those cars?

SADler will lose his ride from RPM by the time they make the switch to Toyota and this move with Braun is simply farming out work, nothing more nothing less.

For a sponsorship dream boy, Elliott sure gets the snub from the NW sponsors and rides.

Unlike AJ & Reed? I mean the team picks who drives NW cars and why wouldn't you pick KK, he is a bigger name, has a bigger sponsor and I am sure has a larger target market.
