No 'Official Announcement' but no denials from Logano - He moves to Penske
If the Observer says it's so, it's so.
Matt Kenseth has been quiet since announcing that he was leaving Rousch Racing, simply saying he would not announce where he was going until everything could be announced. Well, that will happen on Tuesday, according to Utter.
This weekend, Office Depot announced that they would be leaving Stewart-Haas Racing in 2013. Although Tony Stewart is the defending Sprint Cup Champion, he has not had the season expected, and he has been his usual outspoken self, even resorting to throwing his helmet at Matt Kenseth last weekend.
It is expected that Tuesday's announcements will include the news that Matt is taking over the No. 20 ride, sponsored by Home Depot and Dollar General, while Joey Logano moves to the 22 to take over the Shell Penzoil ride. Joey will be the fourth driver in that seat in the past year. Kurt Busch was fired last year and AJ Allmendinger took over the seat. However, his suspension for drug use has Sam Hornish Jr in the car. Although Sam is doing a decent job in the car, Penske is used to winning. He wants a driver who can win, and it seems he thinks Joey can win for him.
Time will tell, as Joey has failed to make the Chase in all of his years with Gibbs, and can only make the Chase this year with a win at Richmond. While that isn't as farfetched as it might seem,. it seems unlikely.
So what say you all. Will these moves help Penske and Gibbs? And what of Rousch, who has two drivers in the top ten this year, but can't seem to put a decent set of wheels under Carl Edwards.
Good moves? Or bad ones?
