    Agreed. Grant is 34 and he hasn't said anything about leaving the Truck Series.

    I don't think that conclusion can be drawn without him getting a chance. That 60 car was crap. Put him in a competent car, with a competent team surrounding him, and some damn consistency in his life, and I think he would be fighting for wins

    I would be happy to see Chastain get the #10 car and have a full time Xfinity ride. As long as he keeps winning races.

    As much as I hate to take about him. Lol. Kyle Busch is not happy with Gilliland in the #4. I don't think he would be wanting to take a step backwards and put Deegan in that truck.

    Whoa! Wasn't expecting to see Paul Menard retire. But if this means Matt DiBenedetto gets a good ride, i don't mind.

    Time for Matt D. to show us what he's really worth now being in a good ride next year. No excuses for him to do terribly.

    That should be good, but I have a few questions: It said Paul Menard will retire from Full Time racing. Does that mean he will race part time? If he leaves, will Menard's stay with both the 12 and the 21, or will it leave one or both teams also?

    So excited for Matty D. I am curious as to where the Menards Money goes though...

    This is what I tweeted Bob Pockrass. Occasionally he responds to me. Menards sponsors a ton of random teams (Penske/WBR, JGR-Brandon Jones,ThorSport-Crafton) and they came to WBR because of Paul Menard. I wonder if they stay.

    Looking at the wood brothers twitter, it's implied that Menards would stay

    Menards does have the strong ties to Penske with Cup, Xfinity, and Indycar. I imagine they will stay around with Penske in their current capacity but may scale back at the Wood Bros. since Paul won't be driving but I think they will stay just for less races.

    This is great for Matt very excited he EARNED a really good ride for next season. I hope he has the chance to show what he can do.

    Sounds like Paul has plans to race maybe he will run more Xfinity races for Penske on a part-time basis.

    Pockrass says that Menards is planned to be on the 21.

    Also, for reference, Menards on the NXS 19 and NGOTS 88 are B2Bs. Brandon Jones has connections to Rheem, who typically foots the bill for the 19, and the Thorson’s own SealMaster, which has products sold at Menards, hence the SealMaster logo on Crafton’s QP.

    Didn't know that about Sealmaster/Thorson. Nice info. What is the connection with Jones/Rheem? Doesn't C. Bell have a bigger connection with Rheem?

    When the rumor of Ty retiring from racing came up I wondered how long Paul would keep racing with family ties and not having great results, this answers that
    I really didn't see Paul retiring or Matt going to the 21 but good for them!

    I’m pretty sure his father is a higher up in the company, or maybe just a large investor, but I might be wrong. They basically fund both JGR cars.
