So its starting to look more like Revell is going to be getting back into NASCAR, its being said that licensing is one of the things that is holding up the return, lets hope that issue gets resolved, I know Dave Van can add more if he reads this

I have no inside info on this one.......I know they are looking at it.....but they are looking at lots of things!!! I'm working on the next Model King Revell kit now....but not sure if it's been announced yet so I'll wait for someone to do that!
I'd like to see new NASCAR kits....but money may get in the way IMHO.

Thanks Dave for posting, so its really coming down to a money issue with the licensing correct?, reading the thread on Randys is making it seem like its on the table, I hope I didnt jump the gun, just a little excited I guess :lol:

Dodge will be back in 2014. Maybe sooner if they win the championship next Sunday.

You know something that we haven't heard Dave? I am a hugh Dodge fan. Of the 5 vehicles I have owned 3 of them have been Dodges. Would love to be able to continue pulled for my manufacturer. On a side note I am very pleased to see that Allen Johnson won the NHRA Pro Stock Championship this year driving a Dodge Avenger. As well as Jack Beckman winning the NHRA Funny Car Championship behind the wheel on a Dodge Charger.

The Dodge folks themselves said the left only because no teams of the level they needed were open. They also admitted that the response they got when they said they were leaving 'made it apparent the impact we had was greater than thought'. And a Cup Championship Sunday will add to that.

They don't consider Penske a top team? Hendrick-Roush-Gibbs are the top tier, everyone else is fighting for recognition. I would love to see Dodge stay in it, would be tough to throw away the gains they've made to date. Maybe it was Penske that wanted the change?

And yeah, if they win a championship next Sunday that will be tough to overlook as well.

Almost forgot, a new kit of anything NASCAR would be awesome!

Bruce, Dodge could not find a top team to switch to , Penske is going to Ford in 2013, so thats what they meant by not finding a top team, yes Dodge counts Penske as a top team

Dave is right, Dodge said that they wanted to take a year away from NASCAR and evaluative their program, and then look at coming back in 2014, now this was all said in the first part of the year, now that Brad K is on his way to bringing a championship home in a Dodge, that just might speed that process up of Dodge returning

Slim pickins' I'm afraid. Stewart won't be leaving the Chevy fold, MWR is solidly Toyota. That leaves Ganassi? Petty? From what I've read a top-flight engine shop is the biggest stumbling block. If Dodge comes back they'll have to start from square one again.

You are 100% correct , that is why the left, they want a top level team to replace Penske

I saw that also on the Southern Motorsports site. Looks like a straight re-issue of the Torino. I have one in the stash I haven't built, but I know the PL Charger was a bear of a kit.

Penske was not happy with Dodge flip flop on it's commitment to NASCAR. Roger is a business man and felt the need to go to Ford, Ford wanted more good cars....so the switch was on. Look to Ganassi to bail. Chip does not like being Chevy team #4.....and was Dodge when he entered NASCAR and won with Dodge. Chip follows the money and Dodge may go there......that's why a ONE year deal with HMS for motors.......and not a multi year deal.

I can see Chip going back to Dodge, you are right, he is team #4, and it shows

As far as Chip goes how much pull does the Earnhardt side have? Earnhardt was a big component for Chevy.

Kinda....in a way.......
Polar lights was owned by Tom Lowe and was part of his Johnny Lighting group. RC2 bought JL/PL and ran it under RC2......until Tom Lowe Leased AMT/MPC/PL/JL from RC2 and from what I understand he has now bought the assets from RC2 owner Tomy. The circle of life hobby version!
