Chevy courting Newman

The hottest news on the corporate front is that Chevrolet executives may be making a run at Ryan Newman and crew chief Matt Borland, according to NASCAR sources. Newman apparently has one more year left [2006] on his driving contract with Roger Penske but Borland's contract is reported to be up at the end of this season. Now comes word Chevrolet is offering to set up a team for Newman and Borland for 2006, reported to be with engines supplied by Hendrick Motorsports. Winston Salem Journal [Editor's Note: This may support the rumor that Rusty Wallace, who is being bought out by Penske South, will take over Penske's Dodge program with Penske South becoming a Toyota team. Ganassi is also being courted by Toyota. Might Penske and Ganassi become the two primary Toyota teams? Might Newman prefer to go with a tried and true Chevy program that wait years for Toyota to become consistent winners?]
