    I see they haven't gone back to what made the Trucks great, short tracks like Colorado National and the like. These guys still put on a good show, hope it continues.

    IN the 2018 season The Trucks were the best Racing of all three divisions, IMHO. :booya:

    With all these "upgrades" SMI and ISC can do for some of their tracks, they can't put in a few extra grandstands and SAFER barriers for a race at the LVMS Bullring & Texas Dirt Track?

    I thought so also. They were fun to watch for sure.

    I saw where Natalie Decker may be getting Bret Moffitt's ride for 2019. She's a midpack driver in ARCA, at best. And the owner wants to put her in a top truck ride only because she has a sponsor. Sad to see.

    I will argue that you cannot have the best racing unless you have the best drivers. Enough said. I am tired of this narrative. Let's go to a AAA baseball game because the one with Aaron Judge isn't as good. That. Makes. No. Sense.

    But they were the best drivers in that series.

    The best football players are in the NFL, but a lot of people prefer the college game. It makes plenty of sense.

    Sports and racing are apples and oranges anyway

    Charlie Spencer Short tracks and road courses rule.

    You can put the best drivers in inferior vehicles running backwards on a Figure-8 track and it's not going to result in the best racing.

    Good article about the little team that did. Beating all of the multi truck OEM teams is doing something

    Shigeaki Hattori makes history with NASCAR Truck Series title
    Shigeaki Hattori and Hattori Racing Enterprises beat the odds, found the sponsorship and prevailed against the best the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series has to offer.

    Creed above was last years ARCA champion in the heavily Toyota sponsored MDM motorsports camp. He is driving a Chevy for GMS. MDM ran a Chevy truck? MDM isn't going to this year and is scaling back from four cars to two Toyotas in ARCA. Weasel Joe hired away from MBM a crew chief. Toyota doesn't have any places for these guys to go that they have developed and yet they let a cup champion team go? It looks like after years of spending money like drunkin sailors, they are scaling back a bit. They are keeping the truck series pretty full, DGR Crosley are a couple of full time Toyota trucks new from last year in addition to KBM's 4. I would guess they are trying to build up truck sales.
