Default More NASCAR talk

Well, as we all knew, Kyle Busch is officially off to Gibbs.

I heard there was also talk of Gibbs to Toyota, as mentioned in my previous thread, but does anyone know if this is certain? I didn't see yesterday'* press conference. I was told that it was announced by Gibbs, but then I also read that it was just discussed as a possibility.

Apparently NASCAR is not fining Harvick for his on air comments, as we discussed, not to mention the "dance" with him and Montoya ( I still say fine Juan Pablo for something, just cuase I don't like him )

And, remember that guy that ran on the track to get Kenseth'* autograph during the red flag?

Just read this this morning

Quote:
Autograph Seeker Faces Jail
A man from the Niagara Falls area could wind up in jail for one year,
all because he really wanted NASCAR racer Matt Kenseth'* autograph.
Brett Hilbert, of Kenmore, NY., jumped over a barrier surrounding the
track
at Watkins Glen International Sunday during a red flag, approached
Kenseth'* car, and asked for an autograph. Kenseth told his crew
Hilbert
asked him for an autograph, and responded, "I'm a little busy right
now." Hilbert was arrested soon after he jumped back over the fence. A
Schuyler County prosecutor says Hilbert'* desire for an autograph
could
lead to a jail sentence, probation, or a fine.

Nothing is final between Gibbs/GM/Toyota. GM is still in the mix. I'm sure Toyota is offereing a very fat check though.

Thanks, I knew you'd have a good answer.
I am quite certain Toyota is waiving plen of $ in his face. They desperately need a team that can win.
Having a the 20 car wouldn't hurt either.

Toyota is waving at least 100 Million big ones in the face of JGR they thought they had a chance with MWR but thats not going to happen for at least 2 years... The 20 car and mark my words will be a Camry next year. and with Kyle Bush in the 18 hmmmm
