Garage Talk: Kluever Out?

RacingOne is hearing that Todd Kluever could be released from Roush Racing sometime this year due in part to both his lackluster performance in the Busch Series this season and the proposed cap for NEXTEL Cup teams, which would force Jack Roush to eliminate one of his cars. Kluever had been named to take over the No. 6 NEXTEL Cup ride from the retiring Mark Martin next year, but if Roush is forced to eliminate one of his teams to fit under the cap of four, that team may be the one to go. The AAA sponsorship could then be shifted to Greg Biffle's No. 16, which will reportedly lose the National Guard sponsorship after this season.

Kluever, who is scheduled to make his Cup Series debut at Chicagoland, has only one top-10 finish in the Busch Series this season. He also sits 23rd in the points.

Update: Roush Racing has responded to Todd Kluever being released from Roush Racing. They said there has been no change in plans regarding his future at Roush. He will still be in the No. 6 AAA Ford Fusion in 2007.
