When Steve Park finally was dropped by Dale Earnhardt Inc. (and inexplicably picked up by Richard Childress), he surrendered his "driver most likely to be fired" status. Who takes Park's place on the hot seat? It would have been Jeff Green, but he was released (the end result of his temper tantrum at Richmond) by Childress the day before Park got his pink slip from DEI.

So, will the in-season driver movement end with Park and Green? Not likely. If previous years are any indication, the first shakeup usually leads to more. Some changes might not take place until the end of the season, but the speculation has already started to pick up steam.
