    There are so many sponsors now, that I have no clue who is a driver sponsor or a team sponsor. When a car has 5 different sponsors for a year, I have no clue. Though I can see where you get that they are a Harvick sponsor as they have been aligned with him for a few years now. If you look at the their website, they are actually a Stewart-Haas and JR Motorsports sponsor. The interesting thing is, Hunt Bros. actually got their feet wet in NASCAR with Haas-CNC Racing in 2009. I hope my original question didn't come off as snarky, I was just curious as to why you were pointing it out. :)

    2008, but yeah HBP was with Haas before Harvick (or even Stewart) got there. They've dabbled on and off with the team since. Harvick has always had a relationship with HBP since well before he drove for Haas. Now JRM has an Xfinity relationship with them, though I'm not sure they'll be a primary.

    Actually, didn't Sadler run in a few races with HBP for a few races at some point either in Cup or Xfinity (maybe both) prior to him joining JRM? I could've sworn he has....

    He started falling off the map after his crash at Pocono during the sprint cup race

    Nope. Yates was on the decline by 2006 and Elliott jumped ship to Evernham, where he never had as much success as he did in the #38. Then Evernham went under too and he became a complete non-factor with RPM. Finally, he moved over to the Nationwide Series in 2011 so he could still have a chance at winning races. It had absolutely nothing to do with the Pocono crash.

    I never really followed him much, I only liked him because he was teammates with Kasey Kahne. I just remember seeing the Pocono crash and didn't see him race in the cup the next year, so I assumed that's why he didn't race that year

    Those RPM years were the worst. It seemed like he would be able to make something happen and then it would just go south. It is nice to see though that they haven't really progressed much as a team since then.

    Obviously, you didn't read my post where I said Hunt Brothers Pizza Racing website says it's a sponsor of Stewart-Haas and JR Motorsports.

    Looks better on the #41. But I'm also partial to SHR.
