RYR to merge with Newman-Haas: Robert Yates Racing and Newman-Haas Racing will reveal on Friday its plans to merge, a source close to the situation confirmed to ESPN.com. A formal news conference has been set for that afternoon at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Actor Paul Newman, an avid racer and long-time team owner in open-wheel racing, and partner Carl Haas own the team currently leading the Champ Car series with driver Sebastien Bourdais, a three-time champion in the series. Yates last month at New Hampshire International said he had personally abandoned pursuit of a business partner, saying he had no debts and didn't need to get into a more pressure-packed situation answering to a partner's business demands. He did, however, say he would allow a head-hunting firm continue to look in that area. Like Robert Yates Racing, Newman-Haas has had deep ties with Ford.(ESPN.com)(7-25-2007)

Well they did annonuce it today, so we now have to call it Yates Newman Hass Lannigan Racing :p

So any chances we'll see a certain Frenchman in NASCAR :rofl:
I don't know from what been hearing Carl Hass has been itching to get back into NASCAR for quite a while now. While Paul Newman doesn't seem to want anything to do with the team, he said at the press confrence today that his role "is like one in silent film". As for a new openwheeler in NASCAR don't worry Bourdias is in talks with the Torro Rosso team in F1 and will likely take one of the seats as for other drivers in Champcar, I don't know anyone with remote interest except for Paul Tracy.
