Well, yes, Villeneuve would get Car 27, which may be what got him interested this year in the first place. But again, if he wasn’t successful in 1999 (and that was with tobacco money behind now), what chance does he have now?
FWIW, the article bears no mention of Craig Pollock, who was JV’s manager and partner last time out. I guess he’s not interested? Either that, or he’s playing behind the scenes, which I doubt.
