Aaron's in ARCA?

As I mentioned in a prior post, I was at Road America for the Trans-Am, ARCA and Cup-Lite races, last week-end. Wow, what a beautiful facility they have up in Elkhart Lake WI for a road course, btw!
You know Ol' Wall is a big ARCA-fan and has attended races at both Toledo Speedway and Road America, and if the weather holds, he will be over at Winchester on Sunday, watching the great racing on that half-mile high bank track.
I am wondering what is happening with Aaron's Rent to Own, in ARCA. With an open pit at Road America, I spent time over there digging the Roush Fenway operation (Their Ford won, btw, with Chris Buescher!). One of the most impressive "operations" I found there besides Roush-Fenway-Roulo Bros. was the Aaron's #9 Team, with driver Chase Elliott. This "mega" outfit, is owned, of course by Pop-Pop and just reeks of big-$$$$$$$(not YEN!)
I could not believe my old-eyes, that Aaron's and Ken Butler would put their $$$$$ in something not connected with POS Racing/Motormouth Motorsports and the JAPS!
Of course, this got Ol' Wall to thinking about when "Mummy" Martin retires out of that #55, if we will see Aaron's Rent To Own heading out of POS Racing/Motormouth Motorsports and over to "Pop-Pop's" Chebbie's for next season.
Ol' Wall can sometimes get a feeling of how the "next" season goes, by watching the "ads". Remember when "Dork" was driving that UPS #44 after Ol' Fat Wallet/10 Million Dollar Man retired from driving and moved to ESPN 2, and, there never seemed to be any new ad-material, when "Dork" started driving. Next thing you know, UPS goes over to Roush-Fenway and David Ragan.
All I am seeing are the tired, old Aaron's ads from the 2012 season, Banger-Buds. See anything new from Aaron's with POS, Mummy and Vickers this season? Where is Macey when we really need her?
Will this be the last season where Ken Butler dumps his $$$$$$(I mean YEN!) onto that #55 (Wet) Dream Machine?
Will "Pop-Pop" be getting a big sponsor and some big, new $$$$$$ for one of the "grand-babies" for 2014, after he dumps Burton's ass?
What do you think?
I do see that KBIII is running at KY, this weekend in the Cup-Lite #24 sponsored by 5-Star. It ran at Road America, also. With Butler driving it, I hope that team has some great sheet metal guys, back at the shop, as, they will need them, come Monday morning when the wreck get back to the shop in NC! LMAO!

They just finished shooting a couple more "odd couple" commercials. One shows how confused Waltrip is that Martin can stay married to one person for life, and how weird it is that he has only one baby momma. The second is how weird Waltrip thinks it is that Martin can leave a bottle of gray goose unopened, never get drunk and drive into telephone poles, run over motorcyclists, wallow around in his own vomit and urine and cry about his bff Dale.
They're hilarious. They will make a ton of people with no credit, no job and no money run out and pay 4x as much as fair market to rent a 72" flat screen television set.

Did you see that #9 running in the ARCA-race at Pocono, on Friday? I believe Chase Elliott finished at P-9 in that Aaron's (Wet) Dream Machine.
I still do not understand how Rick Hendrick was ever able to get some of those Aaron's Rent To Own sponsorship $$$$$ away from POS Racing/Motormouth Motorsports? Anybody have any ideas, for Ol' Wall to ponder-over?
You would think ol' Ken Butler would be dumping his money into the grand-kids........KBIII (Ken Butler) or Brett Butler. After all, he spent thousands of $$$$(I mean YEN!) which was given to POS to train those two Butler's, to drive just like POS does. LMFAO!
I wonder if POS took those Butler-boys for a trip down Dog Leg Road, to see if they could get the..........POLE (telephone, that is!) just like their teacher did, a few years ago. Anybody but Ol' Wall still remember that.........."Tipsy-Sock -Walk"....back to the "Compound"? LMFAO!
