PostSubject: Nissan's AERS Future In Doubt?    Sun Sep 25, 2011 1:04 pm

One of the most quickly spreading stories in the Amp Energy Racing Series garage is that Nissan may be looking to discontinue its presence in AARO.

The manufacturer currently supports but two teams, Firare Corsa and DDH Racing. The fact that their three cars (piloted by Daniel Micks, Siam Rossini, and Lorenzi Rossini) have combined for only three starts through eight races this year, as it turns out, may have called into question the ability of the Nissan Altima on the track altogether.

Allen Reeds, driver of the #19 Buick for team owner and friend Sam Davids, spoke of the situation in an ironic manner. "Funny thing is, I tested one of those for Sam back when he was still getting the team together towards the end of last year...and they didn't drive too good is all I remember. We had to adjust it all to heck just to get it close the proper lap time range...I showed him the numbers and he just said, 'Forget it. You're not driving one of those.' And I know we use a lot of stock sheet metal here [in AARO] so I don't know if maybe he meant for the road too. Even now I've never seen him more sure of anything."

"I think looking back, it was a sign. I don't know if Dave (Hetzel) and the Rossinis did as much work as we did that offseason, but frankly, the way they've run with that car I hardly even know their names."

There is no word yet on any confirmation of Nissan's departure, or if DDH and/or Firare have any backup plan, so to speak, should it be true.

All three Nissan drivers will race in the Verizon 300 at Salem this afternoon.
