  • It looks as though David Stremme is one of the drivers being looked at to replace Ryan Newman in the #12 Dodge next season. It was announced earlier today that Newman, whose contract runs out at the end of the 2008 season, would not be re-signed by Penske Racing. -- SOURCE: David Poole of the Charlotte Observer

  • A contract between Newman and Stewart-Haas Racing “is nearly completed, just some ‘i’-dotting and ‘t’-crossing left” an industry source told Stock Car Talk earlier this morning.

  • One report has labeled the deal between Newman and SHR as “done”, and that the announcement of said deal will most likely happen next weekend at Indianapolis. – SOURCE: David Moody of Sirius Radio and the Motorsports Soapbox

  • There is a quiet rumbling off in the distance that Juan Pablo Montoya could be headed to Joe Gibbs Racing, either as the replacement for Tony Stewart in the #20 car or as the driver of a yet-be-created fourth team at JGR. It’s believed Montoya has an owner-controlled option in his contract for the 2009 season, and it’s highly unlikely that Ganassi Racing would not exercise that option.
