Kevin Harvick touched on one of the most tickling questions in journalism last week when he took the media to task for using an anonymous source in a story about a reputed team rift.

Talladega, Ala. – NASCAR’s undoing of some of its newer rules seemed to be just the cure as Sunday’s Aaron’s 499 at Talladega Superspeedway turned out to be the kind of race NASCAR fans had come to expect at the giant Alabama track.

Let’s see if I’ve got this straight:
If Kasey Kahne has to choose between driving for Richard Petty Motorsports or nobody next season, he’ll choose nobody?
That’s what Kasey said when he announced plans to leave RPM at the end of this season: he doesn’t know where he’ll be next season.
