What I'm curious about beyond the main announcement is, if Andretti does come to NASCAR, who would drive for him?

I hope it'd be John, but I don't think so.

Hey, if you can do decently well in IndyCar, then with the right people, you can do great in NASCAR.

My first thought was that he could get Kurt Busch to drive for him, since he's all but confirmed to be leaving the 51 at the end of 2012. But then again, I don't know what the advantage would be in leaving one small team for another.

Small team with no room for improvement, vs. start-up with deep pockets. If I were Kurt, I'd jump for it in a heartbeat. Would they actually want him, though?

maybe they could hire someone from the Nationwide Series, but that's just my suggestion.

Well, he may have some character issues, but there's no denying he's got talent. If you want to start up a team and NASCAR and you've got a guy like Busch, who's been around for a few years and has proven his worth as driver, wanting on board I don't know why you wouldn't want him.

everyone else is either taken by a big team,

or mediocre

Possibly those two, but that's all to be determined though.

Seeing as Scott (assuming this is Brian you're reffering to) drives for Gibbs, isn't he already taken by a big team?

imo, Scott isn't really going anywhere with Gibbs,

maybe if he had better luck he could be something imo

Of course he isn't going anywhere with them, all he ever does is wreck.

A startup team needs the Champion's Provisional...Kurt Busch it is.
