I just don't see Kasey Kahne being the 'new bud image'. Not without help from Dale anyway.

They need to film 2 or 3 commercials with Dale and Kasey together to make it work.

Yeah, I don't get eth whole Kasey Kahne / Bud thing either.

Obviously, they know what they're doing though. Doesn't matter to me, I don't care much for Bud anyways.

The pepsi BRAND is staying with the #24.

Dale fits the image that Mt. Dew tries to portray.

Right, figured the Pepsi BRAND would stay with Gordon, was just saying that Pepsi Co is the parent company or whatever of Mt. Dew and Amp.
I guess we all agree that it will be Mt Dew/Amp and National Guard and probably the 81. We just need to wait til Wed to confirm.

Which explains the road courses NASCAR runs, and all the F1 drivers that are defecting?

One this year (Montoya), and THREE more next year.

Yeah, I know, they go where the money is..

I have yet to see a nascar run on a road course, so I'll look out for one. I'm actually quite interested to see how the car of tomorrow performs handling-wise (not just turning left, lmao)
