    Who Gets the 48?

    I suspect that HMS will make a play for a top tier talent ie. Harvick, Larson, Kes, etc...in the hopes of keeping the 48 car a flagship team. If and when those efforts are fruitless, they will move to plan b and secure a very promising up and coming talent. I believe HMS correctly identified...

    Chicago RACE thread

    Alex Bowman is a NASCAR Cup series winner...and not @ a plate track.

    SILLY SEASON 2019

    Don’t know why people keep penciling Custer into the 41. If you read between the lines and listen to what Gene has said over the past couple years, it sounds like he has no intention of doing that. SHR’s current model doesn’t really involve developing drivers anyways. Much like HMS did for...

    SILLY SEASON 2019

    Also, there should be no doubt about MTJ. He is a champion...in both series...he is a premier driver and top 10 driver without question. Likely a future HOF driver IMO. Some of us have been watching him since his DEI days. Some of us also witnessed that brief moment in time when MWR had really...

    78 FRR is done

    Anyone bashing JGR clearly doesn’t understand modern day economics...FRR was a main source of competition within their industry. So they made the decision to raise the price. Essentially, it works out to be a buyout. They’ve now absorbed a main competitor and assumed their costs without taking...

    SILLY SEASON 2019

    Here I was, a naive fool for thinking that FRR had just demonstrated a solid blueprint for any new small time owners on how to get into NASCAR and build their brands and create equity. I guess once you’ve climbed the mountain, it doesn’t make sense to do it again. Perhaps there’s nothing left...

    SILLY SEASON 2019

    Thanks for the insight @Allenbaba...still the #1 insider on here, we all appreciate the candour

    SILLY SEASON 2019

    What I’m really curious about is the Furniture Row Racing situation and perhaps @Allenbaba can provide some much appreciated insight. For years, Barney Visser was very willing to run that team out of his own pocket. In fact, it was discussed how previously he didn’t want piece meal sponsorship...

    SILLY SEASON 2019

    Just a curious question for the NASCAR history buffs... If Truex does end up in the 41 with Bass Pro, has a driver ever raced for 3 different organizations with the same primary sponsor?

    Kasey Kahne done racing full time in Cup after this year

    Good driver, decent career...will leave the sport with his head up but left the fans wanting more.

    Is The 4 Car Cheating?

    Clearly SHR has got the balance of their chassis figured out better than any other organization. Couple that with Rousch-Yates engines, which I believe are the best in the sport right now and that’s a recipe for success. I’m surprised more people aren’t talking about Rex Stump and the decision...

    Kurt to leave SHR 2019

    Kurt has always been a premier driver. In the past he has had the tendency to overdrive his car and that has led to more wrecks. His talent and ability however, should not ever be in question even in this twilight phase of his career. The dichotomy between him and his brother is this...Kurt is...

    Kurt to leave SHR 2019

    Is this report legit? Anyone able to comment on their past reliability?

    SILLY SEASON 2019

    Or more simply when the car is fast, you can overcome those mistakes. When the car is slow those mistakes can ruin your race and become magnified, like in that instance.

    Ford Performance

    My understanding is that the new laser tech inspection better enforces areas that perhaps the Toyota’s were previously taking more advantage of. It’s not that it has helped the older Ford’s but just leveled off any extra gains being made there by the other manufacturers. Although, I still...

    Ford Performance

    Agree, just think that Michigan is a really good track to gauge HP. The way Ford performed across all teams was extremely impressive. Paul Menard had a top 5 in a Ford, say no more...

    Ford Performance

    After watching Michigan I’m pretty sure Roush-Yates engines are the best in the sport right now.

    NASCAR all-time...not Cup. Impressive stats to say the least

    Jack has his answer

    Matt Kenseth is the 12th all-time winningest driver in NASCAR history. He is not over hyped, nor is there a debate about him vs. Bayne. History speaks for itself.

    Jack has his answer

    You’re disregarding a very important dynamic of the sport. The business side of it, with contracts and comittments signed and in place far in advance. Also consider financial compensation for an older asset vs. less dollars for a younger one. Furthermore, consider the issues surrounding breaking...
