Dodge Says Teams are Interested; Questions About 2013

Post by Sparkz47 on Mon Mar 12, 2012 12:06 pm

Article from Jayski:

Dodge says teams are interested: Dodge Motorsports president Ralph Gilles said Dodge is moving forward and hopes to remain in NASCAR despite losing Penske Racing as its signature team. Gilles spoke Sunday morning at Las Vegas Motor Speedway after the unveiling of the 2013 Dodge Charger Sprint Cup car. Two weeks ago, Roger Penske announced his two-car Dodge team (Dodge's only major team) was switching to Ford in 2013. Gilles said he already has heard from several NASCAR teams who are interested in switching to Dodge next year. "With the way our phone is ringing, I'm not too concerned," Gilles said. "It's been a pretty positive thing. With every storm there's a sunny day later." But Gilles would not say for certain Dodge would remain in NASCAR in 2013. "Based on the momentum we've developed, we don't feel it's going that way," Gilles said about the possibility of leaving. "We would love to stay if we can, but we have to figure it out. We're actually investing in NASCAR more than ever. Some of this timing (of Penske's announcement) was unfortunate. Some things Roger didn't realize we were doing are coming to pass."

Looks like we're getting some mixed signals here. Personally, I really hope Dodge can stay with the sport in 2013, because the new Charger is probably my favorite of the 2013 cars. But if Dodge can't keep up the funding due to lack of support, I suppose it's understandable. This also raises a very important question: If Dodge has teams interested in partnership, why would they be pulling out in 2013? I guess time will tell.

Thoughts?

Right now, I wouldn't be surprised if Front Row switches over considering Roush doesn't really support them all that much.

Either them, or Richard Petty.
