#71 team not returning in 2012?

Post by Guest on Wed Jan 04, 2012 3:43 pm

#71 team not returning in 2012?: Sirius XM NASCAR Radio's Sirius Speedway with Dave Moody has learned that the #71 TRG Motorsports NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team will not return in 2012. Sources close to the team say TRG will announce later this week that it has shuttered its NASCAR operation and will compete only on the Grand Am Rolex Sports Car Series in 2012. TRG finished 36th in Sprint Cup owner points last season, and would not have been a guaranteed starter for the season-opening Daytona 500. TRG Motorsports made a total of 106 starts since joining the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in 2009, with a pair of Top-10 finishes to its credit. Bobby Labonte claimed a 10th-place finish for the team at Talladega in the fall of 2009, while Mike Bliss finished ninth in the 2010 Coke Zero 400 at Daytona. Team owner Kevin Buckler did not immediately return a call seeking comment today.(Sirius Speedway)(1-4-2012)

From Jayski. What's Regan gon' do now?

I liked TRG, but honestly, they were a waste of space the last couple of seasons.

They have been around since 2008. 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 4 seasons. A couple is 2. 4=2?

They ran part time in 2008. Like, right before the chase until the end of the season, I think they debuted at like Bristol.

They fielding a Busch car in 2007 for a race, they fielded two trucks in 2008, then starting in Cup in 2009. So technically Mother of Invention is correct, but they've been racing in NASCAR since basically 2007. Should have been more specific.

Always felt TRG was wasting its time in Cup so I glad for this move.

It looks like David Ragan's only cup option now is Sinica Motorsports. Laughing
