    In an exercise of throwing enough mud at the wall to see what sticks;
    -Supercheap Auto to go wherever Chaz goes, Chaz' team stating he won't be at Tickford next year
    -The Blanchard Cooldrive/Petronas effort sees a more natural brand alignment with Mustang than with Commodore
    -The Kelly's hunting for a Ford engine supply to run Mustangs
    -A large brand name waiting in the wings to sponsor the Kelly's should they race Mustangs
    -Whincup off contract and publically sparring with Roland Dane
    -T8 in the renewal phase with their Holden Deal, Holden starting already to spread support further than the house of Dane
    -Dane himself doing some very un Dane-like things and also selling equipment and collection pieces to seemingly liquidate high dollar assets held by the business while also selling shares to select people
    -Team 18 and MSR not realising the potential of their (costly) T8 alliances
    -2 seats likely required to be filled at WAU.
    -Conflicting reports at to McLaughlins future in Aus. Some say 3 championships and Bathurst is the stated goal, others point out alleged homesickness of the wife to be creating friction, and others claim a deal is already all but announced for a NASCAR adventure to begin next year

    It's hard not to link Chaz to T8, with Holden likely to reduce their spend and the Red Bull Deal ticking down, a double play to secure a driver and a sponsor wouldn't be a bad move.

    It's also hard not to link the Kelly's Mustang prospects and the Blanchard sponsorship purse together, and given Ford Performances' interest in making it easier for team's to run Mustangs it's hard to see the Kelly's heading in any other direction.

    Further efforts to cut costs and reduce aero before the beginning of the 2020 season too.

    Could be a very different series come Adelaide next year
