I agree, but don't think it will happen either.
Let's give Butch Hylton a chance and see how he does.

Now I can watch Nascar again and enjoy it. We need drivers like Ricky on the race track, this past season was not the same without him. Lets hope he can bring RYR back to the forefront of Nascar very soon.

This is oil and water. If you trace the beginning of the decline of RYR it goes back to the final months with Fatback and Ricky. And the demise of Bobby Labonte in the 18 came with Fatback at Crew Chief. I agree, leave Fatback out and give Hylton a chance. The 88 was improving with him. The Ricky-Yates pairing will be fragile enough without FB.

You couldnt be more wrong my friend! As soon as Yates started jerking Rudd & Fatback around with his contract and his team is when it all went to crap. I think Rudd & Fatback together proved to be the back bone and driving force in that organization.

Welcome back Ricky! I can't wait until Daytona. It would be great to see both Yates cars on the front row. I wonder what DW would say then.

I think RYR cars are better than Dale Jarrett led us to believe. Maybe he's over the hill, he sure looked like it. Sadler was usually competitive when he could keep the car straight all day. Rudd has won with nearly every team he has driven for(exception being his 1st yr and the Wood's). Most top driver's wins have been with the same team. Talented RACERS can win anywhere with decent equipment. Most thought the 99 was junk too until Carl Edwards got into it. Rudd will do great!!!
