Deep Pockets

It's no surprise that Bobby Ginn has decided to downsize Ginn Racing, but it is a bit of a surprise that he got in as deep as he did from day one of taking over MB2 Motorsports. He literally dumped truckloads of cash and doubled the workforce to get Ginn Racing off the ground. With his hotel and resort success you'd think he'd a known better. Here we sit about half way through his first season and he has lost major sponsorships on two of his cars, 13 & 14, and now two veteran racers are out the door. It's like when I want a piece of chocolate cream pie and I cut a piece big enough for 4 people only later to get a belly ache. Too much too soon. Mikey has done the same thing. So does Ginn actually think putting a young rookie behind the wheel will make any difference? Perhaps in the long run Regan Smith will produce as he has shown some improvement, but his ace in the hole will be Aric Almirola... that kid can drive! So the gray beard's move on... Joe's mom must be heartbroken.

Sucks to be old in a sport where youth counts more than experience. Hope Joe gets a ride quickly.

And now we know why he was so interested in Junior...all those sponsors following Junior no matter where he went.

There is more to this than meets the eye..Marlin was on Sirius Nascar channel and stated there are problems at Ginn that need to be adressed and the drivers weren't part of it...Young Eric could be making a mistake ..Ginn has the look of a quagmire in the making....

My cousin thinks that a one car team can't make it. But the way I see it is you got to start small to get bigger.

This whole thing has the look of a plan only half executed. I think more is yet to come.
