From Jayski and Fox Sports:
__________
MWR to run three cars in 2014: Despite NAPAs decision not to return to MWR in 2014, and driver Martin Truex Jr. and crew chief Chad Johnston opting to move on, team owner Rob Kauffman told FOXSports.com that three teams will operate out of the shop next year. "Well have two full-time cars and a third car that will run part-time, Kauffman said.Its really kind of as simple as that. Its not going to run for the championship  so it will have the flexibility to try stuff  but the same as everybody else has to pass tech each week and make sure everythings correct. But it is a third car. It will help us keep the core of the team a little bit more substantial by keeping the engineering staff full, the pit crews are still able to keep in practice and keep going through the motions, so if in 15 we can scale back up to a third car, the infrastructure would still be in place.Its kind of a little bit of a diet, then maybe you can get back to a playing weight by 15. When asked who the driver would be for the third car, Kauffman said coyly,There is one. Pressed whether that driver was Jeff Burton, he replied,There is a list.(FoxSports)(11-10-2013)

What is with this.........."team owner".......comments? Does POS still have a piece-of-the-action, over at the converted bowling alley/cinema or not? Ol' Wall and some of the Banger-Buds always felt that "Cough-man" probably owned most of MWR and just kept POS around for the utilization of his........"BIG MOUTH" and his superior driving skills! LMFAO!

Since POS isn't needed to make those "goofy" CRAPA commercials any longer, I guess his role at POS-Racing/Motormouth Motorsports has been diminished by "Cough......man", especially since POS's plan to "fix" the Chase had been foiled by JAPCAR.

10-4?

This is just a sad, shameless, feeble attempt to put out the message that the third MWR car is available for hire.

The hope is that there is some sponsor out there as stupid, morally bankrupt and heartless as 5 hour and rent to own.

The genius who invented POS racing once said testing is a colossal waste of time. Either someone else is calling the shots over at the scumbag's shop or Lurch has had a change of heart.

banger BUDS!!!

This just across my desk - vintage capital, a private equity firm,(you phuque-tards know what that is don't you; if not just twitt Coughy and ask him) has made a public bid for what is left of Aaron's rent to own that it does not already hold. They currently are a minority shareholder in the company (you phuque-tards know what this is don't you; if not just twitt Lurch and ask him).

Apparently this vintage has on several occasions made private offers to rent to own management to buy the business but on every occasion were "summarily refused".

Also apparently rent to own's stock and earnings are a bit depressed and the time for a public buyout is ripe. The kicker here is that Aaron's management's excuse for the lackluster performance is the "difficult economic environment for our low to middle income customers".

LMFFAO at this excuse for inept management. It was not too long ago that rent to own was raking in it, citing the poor economic environment for driving what was hoped to be a ever increasing and never ending stream of unemployed, underemployed, creditless people to their showrooms to buy 72" flatscreen TV's which was the last thing they needed at 3X fair market price.

So the economic environment is more difficult for their customers because because there are fewer of them. A little better pay, a few more hours per week and all of a sudden you can buy a flatscreen at WalMart or Amazon and you don't have to worry about some crack head child molester coming by some afternoon to take it away from you when you violate the rent contract.

Yes the economy is better, how much better is certainly debatable, but my measure is simple - do I still get a pay check every other week (yes) and what kind of return is my 401k bringing (+40% last year). Here I am digressing again.

If vintage want's rent to own's business and can buy a majority share of voting stock (and the market seems to reflect some confidence that they can) then there is a new sheriff in town. Vintage obviously sees an opportunity here, a poorly managed company and brand, that they believe they can extract some value from.

I wonder if they will appreciate the value of sponsoring a perpetually underachieving, cheating race team and the lying scum bag spokesmodel racer wannabe that comes along with it.

Napa is gone (just bought a reman power steering pump there last week), 5 hour and Clintorous are up for renewal and a pending management shakeup at rent to own.

Anyone worried?
Has this year's kook-aid started shipping??
Bueler???

Interesting news. I see VC already own 9.5 percent of Aaron's. VC also owns the 3rd largest RTO--Buddy's in the southern states. I googled to see what they sponsored--not much.
