The general manager of Red Bull Racing said Tuesday he's optimistic he can find investors to keep the team going after the energy drink maker leaves NASCAR at the end of the season.
The owner of energy drink Red Bull plans to leave NASCAR at the end of this season, The Associated Press has learned.
Kasey Kahne will finish this season driving for Red Bull Racing, a move made possible when Richard Petty Motorsports granted him an early release, presumably to dump the remainder of his contract.
Frye said Red Bull could remain involved in some capacity, but "it's still unclear" how.
If no long-term investors are found quickly, Frye said he could try to cobble together enough funding to get the team through the 2012 season while working on a longer plan.
