    Visssr just gave up. I think it really is that simple. They built their own chassis and hung their own bodies, and the engines come from TRD. Not JGR. Gibbs doesn’t even have an engine program anymore. The alliance was exchanging of information. If Gibbs did increase the price, he’d be increasing the price FRR had to pay to give away their own information to another team. That is grounds to bail, but not shut down.

    They have the smartest team in the sport. Easily the greatest group of people of this decade. Look at what they did with their RCR alliance, which included RCR engines. It’s amazing how bright that team was. They didn’t even need JGR’s information. They would’ve had their own built up by now, and most definitely had the personnel to continue to develop new and much improved setups. Visser just gave up on the team and the sport. That’s my unprofessional opinion. Maybe his health pulled him away.

    Think about this too. How much money did he make with the sponsors he had, the charter, a championship, and almost earning a second title? Money wasn’t a problem.

    Silly Season just keeps on giving and giving. It'll be very interesting to see whether he lands somewhere or just hangs it up. Just wondering what led a major team to boot such a good driver.

    Well... That's rather unexpected news to see.
    I wonder why they decided to part ways?

    On SiriusXM Speedway, Johnny Sauter just announced they let him go for purely financial reasons -- and Moffitt should be his replacement. WOW.

    More like because he's old. Successful 40-year old vs successful 25-year old if Moffitt ends up getting signed to replace him.

    As excited as I'd be for BM, I'm still scared that he won't find sponsorship. Maurice has enough money to keep shelling out for Allegiant / ISM sponsorship but the same thing might happen down the road. We'll have to see. Hopefully they can find something.

    WOW! I am not a fan of Sauter. But talk about coming out of left field.

    That spoiler by itself is almost as tall as Suarez...

    /sarcasm because of how ridiculously huge said spoiler is.

    .... When the car is sitting on jackstands, which it most likely is.
