Well it'* well into the millions..

likely enough to feed a small country for a few decades. But the total we will likely never know.

Probably right.
I just can't see leaving the most winningest team to go to the least.
Not a big Stewart fan, so it'* okay with me, just doesn't make sense.

Brian,

Makes huge sense... would you be happy remaining the #2 Chevrolet Team or would you want to be the #1 Toyota Team? and besides Toyota has done well this year wins in the busch series and running pretty good the second half of the cup season. They need a better team and they have bought that with JGR.

Yeah, big fish in small pond type of thing.
Still don't see them being as competitive for a few years.
Of course, I'll be the first to admit I could be wrong.
Be interesting to see what next year brings.

Cool. We'll have to see what the week brings.
Surprised no announcements over the weekend.
Still waiting to hear for sure about Jr'* new number too.
Heard a rumor of the 38, then heard no.

Jr'* number will likely be the 81.... But guess what DEI holds the rights the that one as well just like the 87. Im almost sure he will not be getting the 38 would be nice but I dont care to see a 3 on a hendricks car....

Yeah, my bro-in-law said he thinks it will be 81.
He also said Jr doesn't want a 3 on his car.
I did hear that the 38 was offered to Hendrick'* though.
I like the 38 idea myself, but we'll see.

Well, it'* official. Maybe Toyota will get a few wins next year. Still don't think it'* a good move myself, could be wrong. I think they have no chance at a championship for a couple of years, but we'll see.
