I remember hearing something about that awhile back, but never heard of another team using the clauseFound this on Jayski:Although Hendrick currently fields four full-time cars, the maximum for one organization as allowed by NASCAR, rules do permit teams to run an additional vehicle on a limited slate for prospective rookie drivers.(NASCAR.com)(8-7-2014)
Spikes a team can run a 5th team with a rookie only. This is nothing new, Rick did it with Danica I believe and I think Roush did it with Baine it's been done a couple of other times. So no new rule, but can only be done with a rookie.
Rogers, Kyle Busch Have Meeting After Race: #18-Kyle Busch came into the weekend with hopes of adding to his 16 career Bristol win total and perhaps sweeping the three-race weekend. But he left Saturday night with serious questions about the cohesiveness of the #18 Sprint Cup team. Busch was involved in an early accident and also endured a pit road speeding penalty to erase any hopes of winning the main event. But things went from bad to worse for Busch, who angrily left his car on pit road when he exited the race with a handful of laps remaining despite crew chief Dave Rogers instructing him to do otherwise. "Park it behind the truck and take your whiny little ass to the bus," Rogers said over the team radio. Busch's frustration is understandable given the circumstances that came his way, but the behavior should raise more than a few concerns about the team's ability to compete for a title. Simply said, Busch and Rogers need to find a way to harness the emotional outbursts before they can be seriously considered championship material.(in part from Motor Racing Network)(8-24-2014)
#11 Dave Rogers#18 Adam Stevens#19 Darian Grubb#20 Jason Ratliff JGR Crew Chiefs for 2015
Seems reasonable. I think that Ratliff will stay with Kenseth. I think they have some good communication as to what the car needs, if they aren't totally out of whack when they get to the track they usually make the car better as the race weekend progresses.
Rumor I heard a couple weeks ago was the team was looking at Sam Hornish or David Ragan to fill the seat.
