Can someone change that to Joey Logano?

Yeah unfortunately Carl taking the 99 to another team is a lost cause. It sucks, I really like him being #99.
Yea, I'll tell you what though. Back in 2007 when Earnhardt Jr. was making his move, the vast majority of his fans wanted to see him keep the #8. People couldn't imagine him running a different number. I was one of them, too. I had the "Free the 8" shirt, decals, and all of that. And I certainly made some misguided/heat-of-the-moment comments about Teresa at the time.Yeah unfortunately Carl taking the 99 to another team is a lost cause. It sucks, I really like him being #99.
Yea, thats usually what I'm most curious to see when a driver changes teams. What is the number going to be, and what is it going to look like. And then whats the sponsor and the paint scheme. Because that becomes the new racing and brand identity.I remember that whole deal about everyone wanting Dale Jr to be able to take the number with him. I had forgotten that it was called "free the 8".
That is a nice way to look at it being a new chapter with a new team. I think the number thing is the one little detail I'm most curious about now, haha. The number and stylization of the number is so important for fans following their drivers. When you get use to seeing your drivers number styled a certain way for so long it takes on a whole identity that you connect with.
My money says Joe Gibbs Racing to acquire Kyle Busch Motorsports.JOE GIBBS RACING ANNOUNCEMENT SET FOR TUESDAY
August 14, 2014, Staff report, NASCAR.com
According to the team, "This unprecedented announcement will have impact across four NASCAR racing series." It will be streamed live on NASCAR.com.
It is a possibility though to consolidate the resources and all. But I don't see Kyle or Samantha wanting to let go of it right now.Really that won't happn since KBM is all ready apart with JGR with the devolving driver for trucks. It's going be about Carl Edwards and nationalwide.
Not hating on you or anything, but he's been around since 2006 and people still can't spell his name right? XDIt was reported a while back that Carl would be sponsored by Toyota Care and "a sponsor currently with another driver". I thought it was going to be 3M before the Gordon announcement. Any word on what tag sponsor is from another team? McDonalds? DeWalt? Charter?
And in the prediction above, NO WAY Elliott Sadler goes back to RPM. I don't think either Sadler or RPM wants to work together again. David Regan or Sam Hornish will be in the 9.
I know, Regan Smith throws me off. Sometimes I spell it Ragan Smith and David Regan. Which is weird because I have no problem spelling Allmendinger or Keselowski. I started a season one time with Marcus Ambrose. It's always the simple ones....Not hating on you or anything, but he's been around since 2006 and people still can't spell his name right? XD
Yup! Here's the whole article -According to Jim Utter of the Charlotte Observer, Carl Edwards will be driving the #19 Toyota Camry for Joe Gibbs Racing. Formal announcement is tomorrow at 10am.

Guess I'm not so crazy now.. LOL.Yeah, the fourth series would have to be the K&N Series. I believe Cody Coughlin will be moved into that series from ARCA.
EDIT: Anyone think maybe Carl will drive the No. 19 hence the announcement coming on the 19th? Just a craz thought.
