Kanaan a possibility for Kyle Busch truck ride

Released from Andretti Autosport last month, Tony Kanaan is rideless at the moment, but Kyle Busch said he has had discussions with the open-wheeler about possibly driving in the Truck Series next season.

Another IndyCar driver looking for work, Dan Wheldon , has also been linked to the ride.

Kanaan told Brant James that his preference is to remain in the IndyCar Series and that the talks with Busch have been very informal.

Miccosukee might pull sponsorship

From ThatsRacin.com:

Sponsorship from Miccosukee Indian Gaming in all three of NASCAR's national series - Sprint Cup, Nationwide and Camping World Trucks - could be terminated as a result of an early February vote by the Indian tribe, the Observer and ThatsRacin.com have learned. FULL STORY

CBSSports.com auto racing producer Brian De Los Santos

If the tribe does indeed pull sponsorship, which the report deems as likely, team owner James Finch will feel the pinch the most. He was all set to field the No. 09 car for Aric Almirola in the Cup Series as well as a full-time Nationwide ride for James Buescher .

Miccosukee was also set to sponsor the No. 18 truck for Kyle Busch Motorsports, which was hoping to run two trucks in its inaugural season. Reportedly they'll do so even if the tribe leaves, but it's a tough start for the first-year organization. As much as Busch may love to race, if he fails to land another sponsor, he may have second thoughts when it starts to hit him in the pocketbook.
