  • AA says TK is free to look for another ride?

    Watching Speed Report right now and that's what streamed on the ticker.

    I guess that means that 7/11 isn't coming back?!

          Or they may have resigned, but at a lesser $$$ money to where Andretti can't afford to pay TK multi-millions.

              From Cavin's Q&A on Monday:
              Question: Any further word on Andretti’s efforts to keep 7-11 as a sponsor? You have long mentioned that not just sponsorship, but sponsor activation is a key, and I think they do a good job of it. Would love to see them stay on TK’s sidepod. (Mike, Chicago)
              Answer: Michael says they’re good. That’s the word Kanaan has received, too.

                I would guess that if TK is free to go, TK signs with Penske and Briscoe is moved to the Penkse B team. If TK is on the market, Penske would be a fool not to pick him up. He, Helio and Power would really put the fight to Ganassi next year. If Penske doesn't sign him, Ganassi will and Dario will be the one pulling the strings on that deal seeing how Dario and Tk are best of friends.

                  I doubt Briscoe gets bumped for TK. I could possibly see TK going to deFerran/Dragon though. That would be beneficial to that team not only by getting a veteran driver who could provide feedback on car set-up but also help Matos.

                    Yeah, I don't really see TK being able to move to either Penske or Ganassi. The money just won't be there to fund the ride. Very surprised though to hear that he may consider leaving AA after he passed on Ganassi a couple years ago.

                      Yep, that would be my guess too.

                      Interesting to see what AA would do next if Kanaan doesn't come back though?

                        Why? He looks beyond frustrated with the situation and probably wants a fresh start rather than finding himself spending more energy fueding with others within the team. Shoot, even Danica mentioned that in her post-race press conference last night about it being one of those years where things weren't "buddy buddy".

                            Miller says 7/11 is gone and TK is a free agent.

                              They're gonna have to find a leader-type number 1 driver or get one of the other three to step up.
