Travis Patrana full time in NASCAR 2013!

Postby Toneman » January 8th, 2013, 8:46 pm

And, in a REALLY good car, too! This will be in the Nationwide series, which is to NASCAR what the "Supersport", "Moto2" or whatever is to moto racing - it's the minor league, if you will.

The interesting thing is that he's had under a dozen starts in what was arguably a mid-pack car. And, he's done decent work with it. Mostly mid-pack, but a 9th and a 12th here and there. Beat Danica once! :D

I understand that he's giving up the whole Nitro Circus thing to concentrate on this. That's a huge pay cut, so I think he's serious.

We'll see! Roush Racing has a history of hiring drivers like him that have their own sponsorship. Then, they can the driver but are able to keep the sponsor. Wonder if that's going to happen here.

It's a 'tard thang
