Does this mean Home Depot could b Matt's next sponsor or could Gibbs b starting a 4th team??   I wonder if game stop could support a Sprint Cup car for the year  they would b a great fit for Joey and I am sure Home Depot would much rather have Kenseth....

I think Gibbs to but i wouldn't be surprised if he went to Penske
they're switching to Fords next year. Possibly a 3rd team. they say they're committed to A.J. but he hasn't been to impressive this year.

My favorite part of the article was where Kenseth said "I have nothing to announce for 2013".  Not that he hadn't made a decision about 2013, or he didn't know where he was going to drive in 2013, but that he didn't have an announcement.  Pretty sure we will hear very soon who's in and who's out.  Logano is the obvious guy that should get booted due to him being a disappointment.  Plus Kenseth is plain, not exciting, and always near the top of his industry...kind of like Home Depot.

I don't buy that Penske isn't committed to AJ.  He's only been there 1/2 a season.  They stuck with the disaster known as Hornish for a while before they cut ties.

I'm not a Logano fan (as many of you know), but I gotta say...as soon as we find out if Logano is out, he's going to be driving pretty mad and motivated.  Maybe us bettors get some pretty good lines with him moving forward...

Not real surprised he's leaving. Just not enough room for Stenhouse Jr. I'm sure they look at Horsehead as their #1 and after they ponied up for him last year you knew either Biff or Matt were getting the boot sooner or later.

What is Shocking to me is the Horrible timing of this announcement. I can't believe they didn't wait til the end of the season to pull the trigger. He's leading the damn points! Lol....

I'll lay 2-1 he ends up at JGR.
They'll be starting team #4 IMO.

Well Stats you seem to know a bunch about Stewart Haas as well. Any idea who is driving there in 2014?

I don't think that Matty and Horsehead see eye to eye and to some extent the same with Biffle. Matty is one of my top 5 favourite drivers and I'm glad he is getting out and will be starting fresh.

I agree with Tree what a horrible time to come out with it....

Well, you guys are right, Kenseth with HD over at JGR.  Going to be in a 4th car so Alan you will be able continue to bang and bet against Joey

Gamestop stepping up big time for Joey as well as DG ponying up.  The only details left are a associate sponsors and car number for Kenseth.  Plan is to keep Joey with the 20, Kenseth hoping to be able to bring the 17 number over though we all know how the Rat in the Hat works!!!!

This is a huge win through and through.  JGR gets one of the best in the business, Kenseth gets the long coveted sponsor with big time dollars, HD gets a better fit for them, Joey gets the perfect sponsor and one that is based better for a 22 year old, JGR gets the long awaited 4th car and you can't ask for a better teammate for Joey, Kyle and Denny.  HMS better watch out!!

The only possible change is Kyle getting DG and M&M's going to Joey along Gamestop

And what I mean by that change is Kyle could have DG some races and Joey have Snickers for a few races, not a big move.  New associate now on horizon which is holding deal from being announced along with number announcement
