nope. HD is married to gibbs, not stewart.

JGR is expected to replace the 37-year-old Stewart, one of NASCAR's most celebrated drivers, with 18-year-old phenom Joey Logano with Home Depot staying on board as the sponsor.

it looks like haas and hendrick have a connection other than auto racing-

Gene Haas, owner of the two-car team, began serving a two-year prison sentence for tax evasion in January.
stewart and newman would make a hell of a 2 car team.

Stewart is expected to gut the organization and bring in his own people, including a second driver. Fellow Indiana native Ryan Newman is among those rumored to be in line to join Stewart's team next season.
i hate to see team penske go down the shitter though. other than newman, their talent scouting sucks.

gaughan, kvapil, hornish jr.

maybe their jasper/penske engines have just become nascar dinosaurs.
