NASCAR.com Says Merger Talks....

with Petty Enterprises and Gillett Evernham Motorsports are in final negotiations with full news expected some time next week.  A team name change is going to occur as well, but that is not known at this time.

The article does say that Reed Sorenson is now in the #43 car now with the US Air Force as sponsorship, but so far GEM had only a four race deal with them.  He was slated at first to be in the #10 car.  Both of those cars though do not even have full sponsorship.

The #10 car is now without a driver as well.

The link says that this is going to be a four car team in 2009.

The 44 car at this point is like gone at this point.  Where this leaves Chad McCumbee, Elliott Sadler, and Bobby Labonte is not know at this point of time.
