Carl Edwards won Sunday’s race at Sonoma Raceway and while the drivers status for 2015 has been the subject of ongoing rumors one potential suitor told Fox Sports that they would delay any announcement about ¬†fourth car until September.

JGR President J.D. Gibbs said that the team would wait until at-least September to make any announcements.

Gibbs did say that rumors of M&M’s leaving Kyle Busch for a fourth car driven by Edwards are untrue.

“They are,” Gibbs said when asked if M&M’s are signed to the No. 18 with Busch next year.

If this scenario seems familiar that is because it happened in 2012. Roush Fenway Racing announced in June of 2012 that Matt Kenseth would not return but JGR did not hold a press conference until September.
