Stewart To JR Motorsports In Cup?
Jayski features a posting about the possiblity of Tony Stewart partnering with Dale Earnhardt Jr., with Stewart becomming a possible driver for JR Motorsports if/when the team moves to Sprint Cup.
Now, as much as I love Jayski, I fail to see this connection. A couple of days ago, when Jr. first addressed these questions, he mentioned Stewart.
Between then and now, nothing has changed. The quotes are still the same. The information is still the same. The ony difference is that ESPN said Stewart could reportedly be a partner.
I think this is highly unlikely. Stewart is believed to be looking for ownership, which I don’t think JR Motorsports can offer. I doubt Jr. would offer part ownership to someone else, considering he’s already got a partner in Rick Hendrick.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see Stewart start his own team, or become part owner of Haas CNC. But, I doubt Jr. and Stewart will be owning a team together, no matter how badly the fans want it.
