Jayski is reporting via ESPN Insider that JR Motorsports may move to cup in 2010, with Nationwide Series driver Brad Keselowski behind the wheel.
In order for that to happen, Rick Hendrick would have to sell his ownership stake in the team, due to NASCAR’s car ownership limit, but that would be a formality.
Keselowski is negotiating exclusively with Hendrick Motorsports. HMS does not have an opening for a driver next year, which could lead to JRM moving to Cup.
Team owner Dale Earnhardt Jr has said previously that it may be more economical to move to Cup, which is sure to fuel a lot of the rumors.
Another option mentioned would be putting Keselowski in a third Stewart Haas Racing car, which is powered by HMS engines and chassis.
The report speculates that Keselowski in a SHR Chevy would kill rumors than Martin Truex Jr will leave Earnhardt Ganassi Racing for SHR next year.
That may not be the case, however, because SHR could always expand to found cars.
