it appears as if this merger is in name only. GEM was already going to field three cars and that is all it appears that GEM-Petty will field as well. so essentially, the cup series has lost two more full-time race cars. the field is quickly shrinking.

it will be very interesting to see how many cars show at daytona and make plans to run full time in the cup season. in my pre-season blog posts, i came up with thirty-seven teams that look as if they will run full-time. i would be very surprised to see more than forty-five cars at daytona.

Were all of those 37 teams sponsored? Are there some folks still looking for sponsorship?
