Kenseth unofficially confirmed, Logano unofficially unemployed

Post by conrail1990 on Mon Jul 30, 2012 7:30 pm

Unless sponsors come along

From Jayski

Matt Kenseth will drive for Joe Gibbs Racing in 2013, but according to multiple sources, the Sprint Cup points leader can't talk about it until mid- to late-August at the earliest due to a stipulation in his current contract with Roush Fenway Racing. Roush announced last month that the 2003 Sprint Cup champion was leaving after the 2012 season and would be replaced by reigning Nationwide Series champion Ricky Stenhouse Jr. Kenseth confirmed at the time he has a deal for 2013, but declined to discuss details. RFR officials declined to comment on any portion of Kenseth's contract. Joe Gibbs Racing president J.D. Gibbs declined on Sunday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway to comment on Kenseth's situation. But Gibbs said the goal was to have four teams in 2013, and that every effort was being made to re-sign Joey Logano, whose contract expires after this season, if sponsorship can be found. "We want him to retire at JGR," Gibbs said. "We're trying to figure out how to make all of that work." Sources said Kenseth would take over the Home Depot and likely Dollar General sponsors currently on Logano's #20 Toyota. They left open the possibility of Kenseth running the #20 or another number. Sources said JGR has looked at several options for Logano, from running a full-time Nationwide schedule and part-time Cup schedule to running a full-time Cup schedule with a part-time or full-time Nationwide slate. "We've talked a number of different potentials, but obviously we'd like him to be in Cup full-time," Gibbs said. Logano also has been shopping for other options in 2013. The #22 car at Penske Racing could become one spot with driver AJ Allmendinger indefinitely suspended for violating NASCAR's drug policy. Kenseth isn't talking to anybody, at least not about his future after Roush. "No," he recently said when asked if he could shed light on his 2013 plans. "I hoped to do it a couple of weeks ago. I don' t know when it's gonna happen. You guys will know the same time I do, I guess."(ESPN)(7-30-2012)

Calling it right now: Joey's pretty much out of a Cup ride and this is coming from a fan of his. I'm pretty sure though he's gonna be in the Nationwide car full time though.

GOOD CHAMPIONSHIP KENSETH LOL.

Happy to see this though... glad to be Logano out of the 20 car finally. Kenseth will do wonders with this car.

He'll stay at Gibbs, just in Nationwide full-time, which is where he should of been all along.

I doubt he'll go back to Nationwide. Gamestop, Dollar General, and someone else will probably share sponsorship on a fourth Gibbs car.

As long as he's a Nationwide only driver I'm fine with it.

This is good for Logano, he's better suited in the Nationwide Series where he can actually race for points next year.

I agree, he needs to go back to Nationwide for a year or two, perhaps team him up with Darrell Wallace, Jr. and have both of them run full-time. It can help both of their careers out, it could help Logano regain confidence and credibility, and it could also help Wallace because Logano would be a good benchmark for him to compete against.

By the way, Is Darrell Wallace related to Rusty / Mike / Kenny Wallace?

If you took one good look at him, you'd immediately relize he isn't the slightest bit related to them Laughing
