10:41 AM ET 10.01 | Germain Racing [#13 GEICO Toyota & #60 Big Red Toyota] majority owner Bob Germain told Sirius XM NASCAR Radio's Sirius Speedway with Dave Moody that his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team may not return to the Toyota camp in 2012. "There is a possibility that we might not be a Toyota team next year," said Germain. JGR's trio of Camrys driven by Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano accounts for three sets and Michael Waltrip Racing's Martin Truex, Jr. and David Reutimann account for two more.

Germain explained that TRD will have the capacity to build six sets of Sprint Cup Series engines next season. JGR's trio of Camrys driven by Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano accounts for three sets and Michael Waltrip Racing???s Martin Truex, Jr. and David Reutimann account for two more. That leaves one engine set to be allotted, without accounting for MWR???s expected third 2012 entry driven by Clint Bowyer, or JTG Daugherty Racing and driver Bobby Labonte.

Almost sounds like Toyota doesn't want him.

The handwriting was on the wall whenever Toy-yo-da decided to go with "works" motors for the top teams ... somebody got stuck with the crappy end of the stick ...

Strange thing is on Jayski .... it list Germain as using, Triad Racing Technologies engines in the cars. ... unless he was planning on Moving Up to TRD. ...

so this year ... TRD is in MWR #00, #56, JTG #47, Red Bull #4, #83, and now the Gibbs #11 ...

so next year ... TRD in MWR #00, #56,#.Bowyer, all of Gibbs #11, #18, #20,

From the looks of his qualifier and practice, Jooonya is going to have to gain some spots on pit stops.
