Torco's CompetitionPlus.com has
learned from reliable sources that Don Schumacher Racing has parted ways with
Matco Tools as a major sponsor for 2007. The company will likely remain with DSR
as an associate sponsor but that is not final.
Don Schumacher confirmed that he was unable to reach an agreement
that would keep the Whit Bazemore Funny Car running. With that said, the writing
may be on the way for Bazemore's employment at DSR.
Expect the official announcement to come some time today.
