In less than 12 hours, Rudd fans across the nation went from jubilee and even a 'traditional dance', to just another day in a rebuilding year thanks to Jayski. Rudd fan forums entered full meltdown mode for a few hours. An instant classic, was reborn.
Early Thursday morning good ole Jaski posted this little note:
"Fatback and Wood Bros part ways? hearing that Michael 'Fatback' McSwain, Race Director for the Wood Brothers/JTG Racing, has parted ways with the team.(5-3-2007)"
Of course within nanoseconds the call for Robert to hire Fatback as the 88 crew chief went out. Forget contracts, forget current employees commitments, forget their families involved. After all, this is a business right?
But like most Jayski hot rumors the denials were announced almost as quickly is the original rumor was spawned.
UPDATE: The rumor of Michael McSwain's departure from Wood Brothers/JTG Racing is untrue at this time.(Wood Brothers/JTG Racing)(5-3-2007)
Will such a bold move ever happen? Who knows. But the buzz today is a very good reason why Jayski 'sold out' earlier this year. He is laughing all the way to the bank. (and who says it is only the France family that profits from Nascar)
