Ouch is the sponsor going elsewhere or just getting out of the racing business?

Sears got out of sponsoring the Truck Series with Craftsman. My guess is that in this economy, with less contruction, also comes lower tool sales profits.

Less profit, less incentive to advertise in such a grand manner than Ten million a year (at least) in Sprint Cup.

Man, this is like seeing STP coming off the side of the 43. I realize Matt has occassionally had other sponsors on the car but it's automatic to say Dewalt when someone asks who sponsors the the 17. From having been in business for myself I can tell you that your ability to sponsor events, employee incentives, bonus's, customer christmas gifts and a heck of a lot of other things ebb and flow with the economy.
