Source: M&Ms Will Remain With Busch In 2015

As always, there are at least two sides to every story.

Just 24 hours ago, reports surfaced that Carl Edwards will leave Roush Fenway Racing to drive an M&Ms-sponsored Toyota Camry for Joe Gibbs Racing beginning in 2015, with Kyle Busch driving a JGR Camry backed by Monster Energy Drink.

Now, however, reliable sources say the M&Ms sponsorship will absolutely remain with Busch next season, and beyond.

Speaking on the condition of anonymity, a JGR insider said there is no truth to yesterday's rumor that M&Ms will back Edwards next season, rather than Busch.
“Kyle is M&Ms guy,” said the source, “and it is going to stay that way.”

Edwards’ remains characteristically tight-lipped about his ongoing contract negotiations, and no one at either Joe Gibbs Racing or Roush Fenway Racing have commented on reports of his impending move. If he does jump to JGR, however, it appears that it will not be with the support of M&Ms.


  1. Well , Let's see the person that broke that story yesterday needs to be barred from any Nascar track or function for one year.Fined $50,000.00 for actions detrimental to stock car racing.

    From yesterday;

    "Unless the Mars family is going back on their commitment to Kyle, which I don't believe they will, this is just posturing on Edwards part."

    I hope JGR doesn't even entertain Edwards coming over there. You said yourself on XM 90 he was past his prime. 4th car should be for a in house driver like Sam Hornish Jr.,Bubba Wallace Jr., or Erik Jones. Take a chance on your drivers Coach. Kenseth brought stability for Kyle and Denny,Edwards will mess that all up.

  4. The M&Ms deal may take a back seat to the report that Home Depot is leaving.
