You F'n sellout!!!!!!!!

Time to pick a new driver...I've been quite impressed with Brad Keslowski these last few years. I still like Greg Biffle and think he's got a good chance to be the "Man" at Roush.

Now for Matt's sake, I do think he has a good chance to do well at JGR and will have a good set of drivers as teammates in Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin.

This wasn't Logano's choice, so how is that a sell-out? Kenseth didn't get the respect at Roush and they wanted to put Stenhouse in a Cup car and open a slot for Trevor Bayne in Nationwide.

makes sense. Kennseth fits into JGR. He seems to be the kind of guy Gibbs likes. Kyle was young and brash but Gibbs knew he could tame him. I think everyone at JGR got tired of dealing with Joeys dad

Well, at least he didn't go to a bowtie team. I would've liked to see him go to Penske like TexRaider, but after the comments from the Ford Racing president I didn't expect him back in a Ford. I think he'll still contend for the title, but sometimes things aren't the same when you switch rides...Jamie McMurry joined Roush for a few years and never panned out, returned to Ganasi and won the Daytona 500.

Kenseth won't get that respect at JGR either with Hamlin and Busch as top tier drivers over there. That's why I figured he'd go to Penske where he could be "The Guy" and get the respect he deserves despite the fact that Keslowski is a star on the rise, but still, I envisioned Kenseth and Keslowski as a dominant force for Penske.

You may be right, but I hope he does well at JGR. He's a class act.
