No 'Out' Clause For Bass Pro Shops, EGR President Says

Despite the rumor [1] that Martin Truex Jr’s poor performance could lead to Earnhardt Ganassi Racing’s No. 1 team to lose its Bass Pro Shops sponsorship, EGR President Steve Lauletta told Hermie Sadler on SpeedTV that that sponsor is signed through 2010, and that there is no performance clause in the contract, allowing the sponsor to leave the team if its performance drops.

Lauletta also said that the EGR will meet this week to discuss whether or not the team will close down the No 8. If that happens, there’s a rumor that Truex Jr could leave the team.
