Since Truex is my 2nd favorite racer, any move that makes him more successful is great.

how can truex replace newman if DEI picks up his contract option at the end of the season?

It's a mutual option I think. Both sides have to agree.

He won't Treasa will give him money and Truex will stay at DEI till later on in his career where it sounds that him and Dale Jr will meet up again.

Mears goes to penske, has said he wants to run the Indy 500 and he'll get that shot later on in his career when he switches to run IRL for a year(possibly more) with Penske.

I think Truex's career would take a huge hit staying at DEI.

how? he made the chase last year, won his first race, and will definately be in the running to make the chase again this year.

Because DEI is tanking. Penske and RCR are much better situations for Truex.

I think Stremme is going to take over the 12. My feeling. He has had the oportunity to drive this year for other teams yet he doesn't, instead he runs test cars for Penske.

Next season is gonna be just crazy with the number of drivers that will be running different cars. That being said, I don't see Truex leaving DEI. He is basically the big named (no. 1) driver there, and Theresa will shell out the cash to keep him there.
