So, I saw that Sage's fruit market is going with TSR next season. In addition KKR seems to be losing some of its sponsors due to Kasey Kahne's cup rides changing. Now browsing the classifieds I see that KKR has what appear to be three new GF1 frames for sale. Is it possible that KKR is going out of business so to speak? I hope not, but it is definitely a concern it seems.

As far as the chassis for sale, I believe KKR has switched to former GF1 employee Russ Mitten's new RPM chassis out of Newville, Pa. They were running the new RPM's the last few weeks. That being said, I was also surprised that Sage Fruit switched from Kasey's team, expecially since both are from the state of Washington and they have supported Kasey from for a long time.

I'm guessing they are not sponsoring KKR are anymore but the article read said nothing of them pulling away from KKR.

it is apparent that these "older guys" are going by the wayside due to the lack of WINS.  sponsors need and want their brand in the winners circle, Donny and Smoke fit that bill and will continue to do so for years to come.  Kasey has a lot going for him, zillions in the bank, a great shock business that will continue to fund his sprinters into the future...life is good!


Ascot was the greatest of all time..

West Capital wasn't half bad either..

Life is good...

I thought Pittman was running CS9 chassis the last I saw?  He seemed to be running better in them.

The only thing I can tell you is to check out the new RPM website www.rpmchassis.net  There is is picture of Pittman on the front page running an RPM.

Zillions in the bank, Now that's funny, so he shouldn't need sponsorship ? KKR does have a shock business, not sure the letters used, but many are running his product. I must say it did surprise me that SAGE is back ing TSR. they have been with Kasey for a long time. We don't know the rest of that story. I'm sure Kasey has and will continue to run his team as he has in the past. Maybe his sponsorship obligations will be less than the demanding schedule of Hendrick and will have a hand in the sprint car program. As it stands now i believe it's his brother and sister running the whole show.

I think Kasey owns Factory Kahne shocks. I am thinking Willie runs it out of California....

You know, you don't have to keep proving to all of us what an immense dipshit you are. 

We're all on board already.

My brother and I picked up a new RPM chassis for them two weeks ago.  I think the reason they have a few for sale is because they are trying different lengths.  Other than that, everything seems to be running pretty normal over there.

End of every season teams sell of some of their parts, nothing new.  Every year at this time KKR ususally puts a few cars online.  Typically good for the racers who are attending the world finals and can pick up the shop in Mooresville.
