Any truth to the rumor that Kasey Kahne will drive the number 43 car next year in place of Dale Jarrett?
Either that or the driver seeks permission from his current team owner to enter into talks with someone else. Most proven drivers are commited to mulit-year team contracts. Untill recently many drivers chose to remain with the same owner thru multiple contracts, due in part to a sense of loyality. Nascar fans are now witnessing a NEW transitional owner/driver period where the trend is for the driver to acquire a "sports agent aka leacherous* lawyer)" and seek the biggest monetary contract any owner will enable. Time will only tell....I suspect a result will be a future fan/driver loyality that becomes as weak as owner/driver loyality appears to be headed.Leftinbuilding said:I am a very casual NASCAR fan so there's a lot I don't know. How does a team go about getting a certain driver? Do they have to wait until a driver comes up as a "free agent"? ....
