Posted By Michael J Smith On January 9, 2009 @ 1:39 pm In Cup | 2 Comments

Following the recent reports that AJ Allmendinger would be replacing Elliott Sadler in the No. 19 Dodge [1], Jayski [2] is now reporting that several sources have confirmed that Sadler will return to the No. 19 car next season.

This news comes as Gillett Evernham Motorsports and Petty Holdings officially announced that the two teams have reached a deal to merge [3].

To clarify the situation, Allmendinger is not under contract with GEM. Allmendinger’s agent, Tara Ragan, said that there were never negotiations to kick Sadler out of the no. 19 car. She added that Allmendinger would never think to do something like that to Sadler considering that he went through a similar experience not too long ago.
