This Week's Racing News Driver's Bid Start t~ Pro Racing Postseason Edition When Bobby Labonte needed a fresh start, he chose Petty Enterprises even though the sto- ned organizafion had fallen far beyond NASCAR's elite teems. The former NASCAR champi- on never wavered in his commitment to help bring the famed No. 43 back to victory lane despite obvious on-track struggles. After Boston Ventures took over controlling interest in June, Labonte agreed to a four-year contract extension, indicating he thought the private-equity firm had the financial resources to push Petty back to the top. However, now that the economic cn- sis has hit and with no sponsorship in sight for 2009, the 44-year-old Labonte was released last Thursday from his contract at Petty Enterprises. Pnvate equity firm Boston Ventures has had two rounds of layoffs, letting go at least 70 employees since last month's season finale. Petty Enterpnses said it was engaged in exclusive negotiations with Gillett Evemham M0tomports in connection with a possible transaction. If the deal isn't completed, Petty Enterprises will field the No. 43 as a single-car team in '09 alter operating as a multicar team for the past decade.
