PostSubject: RPM considering Kurt Busch in #43 car?   Tue Dec 13, 2011 3:48 pm

From Jayski:

RPM considering Kurt Busch in #43 car? Sirius XM NASCAR Radio's Sirius Speedway with Dave Moody has learned that in an effort to retain sponsor Best Buy, Richard Petty Motorsports has proposed replacing AJ Allmendinger as driver of the legendary #43 Ford with Busch. RPM struggled to re-sign Best Buy a year ago, negotiating until early January before inking a one-year contract. The electronics retailer served as major sponsor of the #43 team in 26 events this season.
Richard Petty Motorsports Chief Operating Officer Robbie Loomis confirmed today that discussions have been held regarding Busch, saying, "Best Buy has been a great partner for a long time, and AJ Allmendinger has done a fantastic job for us. He's coming off his best season yet, but I can tell you there is a lot of interest on our part in having Kurt Busch in the fold. It makes sense to have Kurt with our team, if we can make it work.
"Our main focus is to continue building on what we finished the season with last year," said Loomis. "But right now, I feel like I'm running down two different sets of train tracks. From a personal standpoint, nothing has excited me more than when I heard Kurt had become available. I'm excited about the opportunity to add a driver like Kurt Busch to Richard Petty Motorsports. I would mortgage my house to make Kurt a part of this team. We value what he has done on the race track. He has won a (Sprint Cup) championship and worked for a first-class operation like Penske Racing. Guys like that don't come along every day."
Allmendinger finished 15th in 2011 Sprint Cup Series championship points, with one Top-5 and 10 Top-10 finishes. His best finish was a fifth in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway in late May. Busch won a pair of races this season at Infineon and Dover en route to 11th in points, tallying eight Top-5 and 16 Top-10 finishes. He parted company with Penske Racing earlier this month, in the aftermath of a much-publicized verbal confrontation with ESPN pit reporter Dr. Jerry Punch during the 2011 season finale at Homestead Miami Speedway (Sirius Speedway).
AND no word what Allmendinger would do IF this happens; and not too sure Jack Roush [who Busch drove for before Penske and had issues with], who team supplies cars and engines to RPM would allow this to happen.

Again, nooooooooooooooo please...

I really hope Kurt doesn't even come close to a ride with RPM. He really doesn't deserve a ride at all in the first place.

I completely agree with you. 1 championship and 20+ is no where NEAR deserving of that ride.

I want this to happen. I think the reason Penske hasn't officially signed Ragan is because he was waiting for something like this to happen. He probably knew some big(ish) name team would give up their driver for Busch.

Not so sure about that. There's talks that they could be going to a third car AND don't forget what car is still open.

It's not his championships or wins. It's his terrible attitude. If he had a better attitude, then I say give him a ride. But if he keeps acting the way he acts, then he won't get anywhere.

Still very deserving. Money is the reason he'll get this ride. Best Buy has been considering backing out and getting Kurt Busch would help keep them around.

Implying Kyle Busch totally doesn't get away with that **** and got kicked out of a ride. Don't even try to make that argument when Kyle is MUCH worse then Kurt.

Hoping this deal goes through as it gives Kurt a somewhat decent ride and it would guarantee Allmendinger to the #22 ride. It would be good to see Allmendinger in a quality ride.

I'm not necessarily upset over this, I just want A.J. to go to the #22. Could kinda care less what Busch does with his life anymore.

Considering the "second chance theory", that WAS his second chance and he blew it. I'd prefer if perhaps someone else drove the 22. Ragan perhaps, but I highly doubt it. BriKes? No. Would I? I suppose I would if I had the heart and soul to do it like them! Very Happy
