DEI/Ganassi enter merger talks....

Both ESPN and Fox Sports are reporting on a possible DEI/Chip Gannasi merger.  DEI though runs Chevrolet cars while Chip Gannasi runs Dodge cars.

My thoughts: I say this merger helps out DEI the most getting Chip Gannasi, but I do not think that is going to help DEI much.  The merger could work for Chip if he was to get out of his Dodge Contract.  It would certainly solve sponsorship problems for both teams. A three car DEI team of Martin Truex Jr., Aric Almirola, and Juan Pablo Montoya looks good, but will they even fill a fourth DEI car?  I am not a blow out fan of this merger.

In other news A.J. Allmendinger is going to attempt to qualify the #9 Nationwide Series GEM car at Phoenix this weekend.
