Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing | Could changes be coming soon?

FOXSports.com's Lee Spencer reports there is a buzz around NASCAR that Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing could shut down the No. 8 Chevrolet driven by Aric Almirola after this weekend if they aren't able to find a sponsor. If that happens, it would affect the contract of driver Martin Truex Jr., as his contract states his team must give him two teammates or he can leave. It also affects the contract with Bass Pro Shops, as they have a performance clause in their deal and Truex is 28th in points so the team is in a precarious situation. Finally, a deal with Chevrolet could also be impacted. Chevrolet would have the ability to alter their support for Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing if three teams are not covered.
