Major team gets awful news, finds out sponsor has ended agreement under strange circumstances


Here we go again.

In a time in which sponsorship is hard to come by, Joe Gibbs racing found out today that it's losing Subway as a sponsor, according to ESPN

Subway sponsored Daniel Suarez, who drives the No. 19 Toyota Camry. Subway, in a fairly cryptic statement,  said, "Due to circumstances beyond our control, Subway had to terminate its sponsorship of Daniel Suarez." A Joe Gibbs spokesman wouldn't talk about the exact reason Subway dropped its sponsorship, but said it has nothing to do with a violation of a morals clause.

In different times, losing Subway might not be that big of a deal. Subway only sponsored Suarez for four races.


But in these times this is a big deal. Teams are scrambling for sponsorship dollars, with drivers such as Kurt Busch, Matt Kenseth and Danica Patrick all scrambling for dollars.

The loss of any dollar hurts.
