Actually, it should be more along the line of Penske going back to Ford. Remember they were with Ford until after the '02 season.

Overall, it doesn't surprise me. Dodge hasn't had much success in the last couple of years in NASCAR.

Look for RPM or another mid-tier team to switch to Dodge. Would not surprise me. Maybe BK Racing can get a Dodge deal Laughing

I'll be very surprised if any of them do. Kurt Busch and Brad Keseloski are the only reason Dodge had any wins last year. I honestly don't believe Dodge even has the pockets the other three do to make it work anymore.

Not as far as I've been able to work. They've been pretty much silent on their car (Assuming they have one).

Anyone else see the irony in this considering our spy shots of the '13 Dodge came from Penske themselves?

Teleconference with Roger Penske about the move. For those wondering why he didn't go with Chevy since it they are together in Indycar:

“We thought it was time to evaluate other options. With Chevrolet, we’d have a hard time getting in that line with the teams already associated with Chevrolet.”

This most strikingly answers the question on the decision to switch:

“This wasn’t about money, I want to make that clear. The multiple-car teams have been the strength in NASCAR. We’ve been operating for the last 10 years with some support but alone. We needed to have a benchmark, and it will be good to have that additional technical information flow through the process."

I say that in sarcastic tone just to exaggerate the silence on their new car.

From Jayski:

Where does Dodge go in 2013? A new manufacturer in Cup?
Dodge will unveil its 2013 Sprint Cup car on March 11 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. However, the bigger question now is who will be driving Dodges next year? Robby Gordon Motorsports would be the lone team at this point after Penske Racing announced Thursday that it was moving to manufacturer Ford in 2013. But Dodge has also reached out to other teams, including Richard Petty Motorsports, according to owner Andy Murstein. "We received calls from several manufacturers today asking if they could meet with us," Murstein said. "It seems that while sponsorship is down, car manufacturer support is strong. That is probably due to the fact that the car companies are all doing significantly better these days than a few years ago. Thus Petty has been approached by several manufacturers recently. What's interesting is that while there are the usual suspects there is one new manufacturer that is trying to break into the sport. RPM's contract with Ford is up at the end of the season. Petty ran Dodges from 1972 to 1978. Petty Enterprises aligned with Dodge again when the manufacturer returned to NASCAR competition in 2001 through most of the 2009 season, then under the RPM banner. Earnhardt Ganassi Racing president Steve Lauletta said the company had not yet been approached by Dodge.(Fox Sports)

Have fun guessing on who'll be the next manufacturer joining NASCAR. Laughing

Kia? Laughing Don't think that'll happen. Volkswagen has shown an interest and has been putting in the research. I see them trying to enter the fold. Possibly Honda, but most likely Volkswagen.

There was a rumor in like 2006 or something that Kia might be interested in NASCAR. Absolutely nothing happened though. Just felt like throwing Kia's name in there for that reason. (And the lol's)

I think the most likely candidates are either Buick, Honda, or Kia. But considering how silly season went, I wouldn't be too surprised if NASCAR threw us a serious curveball.

EDIT: Now that I think about it, I'd probably put VW in the place of Buick, consider Buick hasn't been active in motorsports since the early 90's, and VW has already expressed interest.

oh gosh who else then? All that Dodge can do is hope that they can get in touch with another Sprint Cup team and ask if they can be their manufacturer for 2013.
