Stewart to JGR Looking Like a GoWednesday, October 19, 2011 | 9:00 AM
Racer X has learned that the much-rumored James Stewart to Joe Gibbs Racing deal is imminent. While this has been discussed for over a month, we also know that Team Suzuki was making a push for Stewart and that nothing official would come until next week (we reported this in our Monster Energy Cup Notebook story yesterday).
Sources now indicate that a JGR/Stewart announcement is indeed coming early next week. Details are scarce. Will he be on a Yamaha? Outdoors too? Is there a potential NASCAR component? What about a teammate and sponsors?
We'll know more next week, but for now, our sources say James Stewart will be riding for Joe Gibbs Racing in 2012.
