Because the Petty's do not have controlling interest anymore is how they can team up with them! I mean after all, the guy running Petty Enterprises use to work for Playboy! The Petty's are done in the sport, if this merger is true and Chad McCumbee's Cup career, if you call what he had one, is finished! Kyle Petty ran Petty Enterprises in the ground! As much as i respect for what they've done for Victory Junction Camp it has come at the cost of the future of Petty Enterprises. I lost alot of respect for Kyle when he said he only races to keep attention for the Charity, and that's not why to race! You do it to be competitive and to do it because you love it, not for the goodness of a charity! That seat should've been given up to a young guy like Carl Edwards or Jimmie Johnson which they could've gotten around the time Adam died, but they didnt get on the young guy train and instead jumped off when Adam died. Whether Adam had it or not i dont know, but i'd love to have seen it, but they should've kept the racing business alive and competitive and should've put as much focus on it as they have for their charity and have hired those two guys instead of getting these idiots such as John Andretti and Jeff Green to drive the famed 43 car! I have no sympathy for the Petty's for they done this to themselves! They gave up the racing business for a charity, plan and simple and im sure ill get critized for these comments but that's the way i feel. I have the same to say about DEI and same deal with Earnhardt Sr and Adam Petty and Kyle Petty and Teresa Earnhardt are the characters too!
