Dodge didn't plan on leaving NASCAR they were hoping to expand with the
new car and maybe another team, they got screwed by Roger Penske when
he decided to switch to the blue oval camp. Penske is the only builder of
Dodge Sprint Cup engines right now and even if Dodge secured another team
you can't have your competition building your engines. Dodge thought about
building the engines themslelf and selling them to the teams like what Toyota does with Gibbs and Michael Waltrip Racing but the start up cost would be astronomical.

I know there are probably a lot of stories floating around about what happened with Penske and Dodge, but I believe this to be true - Penske asked for a 5 year contract which is normal for the teams, and Dodge would not give it to him - he called Ford and they were glad to give him a lucrative deal - not sure about length of the deal.


I think it is Dodge's fault that Penske left. (My opinion based on this article)

I heard somewhere that Dodge only offered Penske a three year deal.
