Just is not the same to even think of the Petty name in a Toyota. Even if a Petty is not driving you might as well slap some beer logos on the Petty car as well.
The more I say it is not so the more scared I become that it is just around the corner.
If he is going to a Japanese company might as well go all the way and bring in a new brand. Honda? Nissan? Subaru? Do not become 3rd , 4th fiddle or worse for Toyota. The Petty name deserves better than that and should be at least the number 1 of something new.
Better yet stick around with Dodge and when Fiat comes in drive the first Ferrari on the circuit.
