Monster energy drink to replace Red Bull in cup?

There happens to be a two-car Sprint Cup team owned and sponsored by a certain energy drink (Red Bull) looking for investors or a graceful exit from NASCAR next season. There's a Nationwide series driver (Ricky Carmichael) sponsored by rival Monster still making his way in NASCAR after one of the most successful motocross careers in the sport's history.

Carmichael doesn't think Monster will swoop in to replace its nemesis, but he candidly admitted Red Bull's possible exit is good for him and his sponsor.

"[Monster is] a great brand, No. 1 in the energy drink business domestically, probably going to be No. 1 worldwide," he said. "As far as supporting me, they like where I'm at and have been willing to follow me wherever I go. As far as the other energy drink pulling out, I don't think they really care."
