Just two races to go in the 2009 season and after a wild one last week at Texas, the championship chase has once again tightened up. After a couple of weeks of speculation and conversations Earnhardt Ganassi Racing decided to return with Chevrolet for the 2010 season. The organization reportedly had conversations with Toyota. Sponsorship news also made headlines this week as Stewart-Haas announced a continuation of their relationship with US Army and a new relationship with Tornados foods and TRG announced a continuation of their relationship with Taxslayer and the addition of Bobby Labonte for 2010. Finally, Michael Waltrip announced the formation of Diamond-Waltrip Racing with former team owner Gary Bechtel. Trevor Bayne has signed a multi-year contract to drive for the team.
