    Looks Like Daniel Suarez just got a opening to move up to Cup racing...

    That is interesting timing. Gibbs just let Erik Jones go to Furniture Row. Bet they would have appreciated hearing this a little sooner. I'm very curious to hear the reasoning for this decision.

    Carls contract was up at the end of 2017, so is Matts, Joe Gibbs already said Eric Jones would race for him in 2018, and most likely Daniel would be ready for cup too... With only one seat open at Furniture Row, that leaves one guy looking for a job..... Most in house contracts are close to being done for 2018 by now if they are going to happen .... My guess is Carl was the odd man out, he told them to get started now, and that is why he cannot race in 2017..... Or he was offered a TV deal that he could not refuse..... Heard rumors he is not happy with the new cup sponsor choice, but cant see that as a reason.....

    He is married to a doctor I believe. He is an enlightened cat, smart guy. Wish him the best and hope his reasons aren't due to some type of health or family problems. He is probably just tired of being teammates with Kyle Busch.

    Truly one of the good guys. I would have liked to see him win a championship or two, though!
