    Purely unsubstantiated rumor... but I heard a car salesperson from Hawaii bought it to replace the Toyota TT he sold earlier this year.

    Aloha

    I believe Travis is going to race the ex-Corona TT and Marty will drive his truck?

    The rumor is TRUE. We heard it straight from the horses mouth. The truck was built by Danny Porter from Porter Racing in Riverside CA.. They are planning on running both trucks next season. Not sure weather Travis is going to drive one and get a new co-driver and Marty is going to drive the other one and get a new co-driver as well. Im sure if you keep checking Coyne's web site the announcement will come soon enough.

    Stop the rumor mill. The deal is Marty Coyne and I have reached an agreement on a sale of the Corona TT. The truck will be repaired by Paul who runs Marty's program. As far as Coyne Motorsports plans for the future you need to ask them. I will continue to support Brian Ickler's with his class 1 effort and I'm really looking forward to running the Baja 500 with him. All good things come to an end and it was time for our TT effort to end. I wish Marty the best of luck and would like to thank all the people out there that rooted for old # 6 and all the great sponsors that help us.

    There you go. You heard it from the man himself. I was told Marty was buying the Corona TT for Travis to drive and Paul was going to fix it. I also heard that, (and I don't know true it is) Jery Whelchel was going to co-drive with Marty. I don't know who will ride with Travis.
