Oh please. Robby's been building the teams going on four years now. Remember he is also driving for RGM West and has been quite successful in that league. He's just saving the pennies by being the driver for Nascar and working towards finding the employees that can handle "his way". He has five cars in the stable now and really has stayed out of the big wrecks this year. Give him two more years and he will fly even better than he does now.

Robby has.....that's the point I'm making. Better to try than not try in life. He's a champion - one of the best. USA has so many racers, yet he's in cup and look at all he has acheived in his life. He would be a dream to work for in my opinion - all or nothing. Love the win win situation, and he's got it. One of the best road rally racers there are out there. Go and Get It Robby!

Tony is already a successful owner in other series and they want him to drive for them and he will bring a lot to the organization just by being Tony, they are getting the employees and the other driver that they never could have attracted otherwise. It was smart, like JGR going to Toyota rather than getting an investor, Haas got Tony rather than a publishing company, or a baseball team, or a razor company...
