This is legitimately shocking. I can't believe that:

1) A 3 time (and defending) series champion needs to scramble for a sponsor in September.

2) That companies like Office Depot, and if you believe the rumors DuPont, no longer see NASCAR as a viable investment.

3) That of the 3 (?) SHR cars that will be on the track in 2013, only Danica Patrick has a full season sponsorship.

On a personal note, NOT looking forward to replacing all the Office Depot #14 stuff I have. I also wonder that had Home Depot known about this before reportedly signing Matt Kenseth that they'd have gone back to Tony where they belong.

Kenseth signing with JGR is a done deal apparently (according to rumours) but whether he's taking over the #20 or a new number should JGR start a new team...that has yet to be seen. Same with Logano possbly signing with Penske.

SHR may want to hold off on Danica joining Sprint Cup for a couple of years, I think.



...on a roll!

There goes Logano to Penske. Still holding out hope Dollar General is the primary for the #20 instead of Home Depot.

Next PPV from them is October 11th, in Las Vegas and has Fedor vs Arlovski as the main event. This is great news, as it will spur UFC to put on more great bouts, and will hopefully make all the MMA PPVs more exciting.
