UPDATED: JGR Confirms Ford Release. Grubb To Replace?
Hendrick Motorsports owner Rick Hendrick confirmed recently that Grubb has a standing invitation to return to that organization in 2012, and Grubb said he has other offers from other operations, as well.
After winning eight races and challenging for the series championship a year ago, Hamlin and Ford managed just one victory in 2011. While they qualified for the Chase this season, they were never a contender for the title en route to a ninth place finish in points.
There has been no official confirmation by any of the involved parties.
