Just the same as Dale Jr. switching to the number 88, Kyle Busch switching to 18, and seeing a new name attached to the number 8 car, it will all take some getting used to but I am not quite sure if that is the real reasoning for chosing that number. That is nearly one of few numbers left out there to chose from, but maybe once it has been officially announced, the reasoning will come with it.

That's smart marketing and branding. He spent years building a Rep for that #14. he would be a fool to just let it go.

Matt, Steve actually predicted this a few weeks ago, and included it in our first Monday Morning Crew Chief video, with Mindy. I don't know if he saw it somewhere else or not, but I have to give him some props. AJ has always been one of Stewarts heroes, so it makes sense, given his reverence for racing tradition.
