Richard Petty And Jamie McMurray News

The big news today is that Richard Petty along with a couple investment groups have wound up and bought Richard Petty Motorsports.  Richard will now oversee the day-to-day operations of the company.

Over the Thanksgiving holiday Jamie McMurray wound up becoming a father as his wife Christy gave birth to Carter Scott McMurray.

My quick thoughts on the big news:

Although I like Richard Petty getting back control of the company the only real thing that is going to help Richard Petty Motorsports to grow is money.  Sure 2010 was a good year for Richard Petty as A.J. Allmendinger and Paul Menard pulled off a whole bunch of solid finishes, but the lost of Budweiser and Menards as sponsor for the company will hurt them.  With money they will be able to hire the right people to get them back into victory lane.
