The Pit Stop


July 7, 2009 10:10 PM

Michael Waltrip Racing has made it official...

today in signing Martin Truex Jr. to drive the #56 car next year.  Michael Waltrip will be doing part time duties in 2010 which includes the Daytona 500.

Michael Waltrip Racing is a big winner here.  This helps them move just one step closer to winning a championship.  David Reutimann is 14th place in the points and could make the chase. Marcos Ambrose is 18th place in the points.

This will now leave the #1 car for 2010 without a driver and possibly without a full year sponsor as well.  Aric Almirola would be a good choice for car, and could get into #8 car this for Earnhardt Ganassi Racing if sponsorship bucks were found.

Brad Keselowski would also be a great fit for the ride and Earnhardt Ganassi Racing will take a good look for him, I see him going to Stewart HAAS racing.

Jamie McMurray will also get looked at,  but I see him going to Yates Racing for 2010 if he gets dumped from Roush Fenway Racing.
