    He may not be retired, but heíll never be consistently competitive again.

    And the saga continues. If the rumor about him and mark richards putting something together is true I wouldn't count him out yet. Coming soon has been thrown out there and it surprises me it has been kept under the radar as long as it has.

    If those 2 would have got together 20 years ago they would have dominated the sport. Scott is one of the few who is very good being there at the end of a race and not tearing up his race car. I'm sure Mark would love a driver who didn't tear up the car and still have it on kill mode.

    Probably not. They'd both be late to the track.

    I think itís largely a waiting game, to see how well he does or does not heal up from back surgery. Either way, his best days on the race track are behind him.

    There where many times over the last 20 years when they have dominated the sport.

    I was talking about together as a team. Not with separate teams.

    Id rather see Shane McDowell and Scott collaborate, revive the chassis business, and make the 17M the house car with all their sponsors getting behind 1 car......and kick some @$$

    This makes more sense than the Mark Richards theory, which in my view would never have worked. I don't see how Scott needs Mark or Rocket, his cars are still top notch and he knows how to make them go fast. IMHO all he needs is a dependable crew to prep the cars and do the leg work. Lots of businesses have been struggling to get get fully staffed since 20'. He's had a lot of issues come together at once, some external, some self inflicted. The mistake was continuing to try and compete without being fully prepared and just middling. The streak he and Madden got on before the wheels fell off shows the potential of his cars, but he needs to get himself right and i know thats hard in your 50's(me too). In conclusion if Scott can get back 75% health and put together a little funding for next year or the end of 23' and rebuild the team, then I don't see why he cant run the events he wants to and focus on the cars for retirement. Its doable, if he still wants it. Who doesnt love a comeback? JMO

    Henry is spot on with his post IMOÖ..Iím not even sure how both Scott and Marks head would even fit in the same room together.

    And Iím a fan of one of em, but just donít see those two egos playing nice.
    Where is the move over flag when you need it?????

    Exactly my point, Barbeque. Most won't remember this but in 00' or 01' Bloomquist and GVS paired up and didnt make it thru speedweeks. He's always been independently minded, I think Barry Wright was the last one he got along with for any time, heck even his time at Warrior was... special and kinda partitioned off from everyone else, even those "Black Magic" cars weren't 100% what he was actually running. That and since Mark copied his frontend and sold it to the public, I just don't see a workable partnership there, from either side. Now Rocket has the "New Deal" anyway, so... IMHO.
