DW had a nice article on foxsports and thinks so too.

DW noted his own team was a start up and he thought too much like a driver as opposed to an entreprenuer (which tony is).

he is already a successful owner of eldora racetrack and sprint car teams.
he's taking over an established team, with a nice new shop.
he will have support from hendrick.
chevy will throw a ton of cash at him.
he can pick the cream of the FA crop for a teammate.
