Have you heard the rumor? You know which one. The one what Greg Zipadelli will be the crew chief for Tony Stewart.
Yep. I have heard it. I heard it yesterday. I heard it this off season. I heard it last year. I have heard it since Tony Stewart left Joe Gibbs Racing.
This rumor will continue. And there are plenty of reasons for it to continue. Greg Zipadelli no longer needs to leave the confines of JGR. He is already signed with Stewart Hass Racing (SHR) and is the part time crew chief of Danica Patrick, a role he will not return to in 2013. Instead Zipadeli will continue to serve as the competition director of SHR? Hmm.
Together Stewart and Zipadelli won two Sprint Cup titles. Last season Stewart fired Darian Grubb and that was while the pairing was on their way to running the Sprint Cup Series title and five of the last ten races. Hmm.
This is a case of a rumor that will not go away until it happens. It may never happen but it will never go away.
There is just too much history bet...
