Coming from a comment by oldtimer in the 'Who will replace Scotty' topic.
And now the Racing Insiders podcast (ep. 29) suggest that Penske have one foot out the door!

Their comments also suggested that Penske and Story are now the only share owners? Did DJ sell off?
Gives reason as to why Story wasn't given the flick after 'that' interview last year.

Holden gone, does the 'cap see no future here? If Penske pull the plug, I guess it means Ford would too? I highly doubt the blue oval would be here if Roger didn't say so...

I can't see any of the owners of DJRTP just throwing money away.
If there's no future then there's nothing to sell...

Hasn't Story been a share owner for some time now?

Wouldn't surprise me if Penske did pack up. The series shot it self in the foot focusing on one manufacturer and burning 3 others.

Ford fans be proud. History of Australian motor racing shows Ford has been and will always be superior. They have to slow them down when they get serious about racing. The Phase 4 scared the **** out of people, they banned it. Sierra gets called on a technicality, Falcon EF "...had its wings clipped to make Holden part of the show", AU not allowed to show it's potential, Falcon BF gets clipped. Mustang Is so good Supercars made up a rule and gets a bag of cement in the roof, and it still wins.

I believe DJ, Story and Steve Brabeck had a chunk of the 49% after the 51% majority went to Roger.
Has DJ folded his cards since though?

If Roger is up stumps, then the game is over.....they have made it clear, they would only stay if they had a serious opponent...

What do you consider an Aussie team?

The last all-Aussie team to win the series would be Seton in 1997

Roger came here to win and to sell more trucks.

Championships were won, the Bathurst 1000 was won (in disputed circumstances) and sales of MAN and Western Star trucks are up.

It's almost as if this racing thing was entirely a ruse to sell more trucks and Detroit engines.

The ships sinking and the Captains getting off! Not surprising given Supercars has nothing to fill Holdens gap and this COVID-19 economic downturn will eat up any sponsors spare cash!

New Commodore Hey! So you used your own money? Would you like to buy a used bridge?

One where all the important people - especially the drivers/team managers/owner live in Australia.

Also, not country specific, but Iím generally not a fan of teams being owned by someone who has other larger/more important things to do with their time...

If Roger Penske pulls out (or even steps back to be less involved) I believe that would be better for the team and better for the sport generally, as it would leave the team owned and run by people like Ryan Story who spend just about all day everyday focusing on the team.

Iím no nationalist. Iím just not a fan of owners like Roger Penske and Ryan Walkinshaw who own a team while living on the other side of the world. That clearly means they have other things they care about more than they do their team.
