Just past the halfway point, and the silly season is starting to get into full swing. Martin Truex Jr. made official the worst kept secret of the 2009 season on Tuesday, announcing his move to Michael Waltrip Racing in 2010. Truex joins MWR after four full seasons with Dale Earnhardt Inc. and its successor organization Earnhardt Ganassi Racing. The rumor mill is now getting geared up for the next prospect in line, Brad Keselowski. Keselowski, whose contract is up with JR Motorsports at the end of the season is looking to go Cup racing full time in 2010. And finally NASCAR appealed to the Fourth Circuit this week to lift the temporary injunction placed on driver Jeremy Mayfield’s suspension prior to Daytona. This is the NASCAR week that was July 5 to 11, 2009.
