As reported yesterday, AJ Allmendinger will replace Elliott Sadler in the No. 19 Gillett Evernham Motorsports machine starting next season.
Rumor has it that Gillett Evernham Motorsports is in talks with Petty Enterprises about a merger for 2009. A possible merger would mean that one of the PE cars, most likely the No. 45, would be dropped, as the No. 43 would join GEM’s Nos. 9, 10, and 19.
