I wouldn't be at all surprised if the 'replace Scotty' timeline has altered greatly with this virus - could be 12 month, could be longer so the speculation for his replacement would continue for much longer.

ok how about something left field, Austin Cindric, he has made it know that he wants to drive a supercar, clearly has the strongest possible connection to team penske and if i remember correctly he tried to get a wildcard entry to bathurst last year of the ground like rossi did with walkenshaw but clearly that was knocked on the head.

How about a little left field pure speculation, to go with all the other speculation herein.

As far as I can find out, FORD have only committed, through their Penske NASCAR connection, to the current Mustang Supercar.

It seems likely that the current cars will continue in 2021.

They could keep Scotty in Australia for another year with races overseas pending his possible move in 2022.

If FORD do not commit to, and fund, a Gen3 Mustang replacement or changes, then there is a possibility that Roger will pull the pin on his DJR/TP involvement, in Supercars.

Roger has done so in many series over the years. He jumps in, has a go, then after succeeding, most times, he up stumps and moves on to another series. His current focus is on Indycar and the Indianapolis Raceway.

I am not assuming that they will need a Scotty replacement because there is no confirmation that the drive will even be available.

That has been eluded too elsewhere, considering the main aim of an Australian Penske team was to kick arse and sell more trucks.

Those boxes have been ticked.

Depends how much $$$ Penske is putting in. If Shell is fronting the bills there's no reason to close a good business case.

That business case works fine IF they continue with the same cars.

I would be surprised if Shell is paying all the bills.
