    Trucks have had good entry lists so I'm surprised at only 28 on the initial entry list.

    I know the JJC Racing 0 truck will enter.

    #87 Timmy Hill has been added to the entry list.
    #7 and #30 have withdrawn. That's the second week in a row we lose full-time trucks.

    37 trucks on the entry list for Charlotte
    Forrister, Roper, Little, Finley, Rohrbaugh, Hill and Poole are back.
    KDB's last truck race of 2019.
    Trey Hutchens attempts his first race of the seasonwith a family team.
    Camden Murphy (parked some races for Cobb last year) drives NEMCO's #8 truck, Front Row Joe will do an S&P in the 87.
    Stefan Parsons returns to the truck series in Ray Ciccarelli's truck.
    Peters returns to Ricky Benton's team.

    Wonder what happened to Henderson Motorsports. They originally intended to run Dover and Charlotte with Kligerman, but didn't enter both races.

    At last. Too bad he's racing in this one.

    pulling for the 97 Jessie Little, underfunded east coasters on a limited schedule who usually show up with a well prepared truck, surprisingly fast sometimes. Chastain coming back off of a win..could be good.
    Murphy? is driving for Nemechek, might be interesting.

    I would love to see Chastain take out kybu for the win. He's got nothing to lose. :D

    Always amuses me they have 37 or 38 trucks on the initial entry list and 27/28 the week before. I guess being that close to Charlotte minimizes the DNQ risk?

    I like Camden Murphy, he made his first starts a few years back at Martinsville and had a solid day, been stuck starting and parking since though. Fun fact about him is he drives in Monster Jam.

    Peters, Hutchens, Bilicki and Cobb miss the show.
    If the starting field was set by the fastest 32, Boyd, Ruch, Reaume and Cobb would've missed it.
    Man, I hate that rule.

    I don't Cobb, was over 25 MPH slower than the leader. That rule was made for a reason. They will be passing lappers every 15 laps.

    I was talking about the owner points provisonals. The fastest 32 should always be the ones who make the show.

    Kyle just put KBM on blast again. Will have to dig up Pockrass tweets.

    I'm sorry, what does it mean to put something 'on blast'?

    Kyle gives the KBM program a 2 out of 10 grade and says the 2 drivers ain't doing sh!t.

    He's not wrong tho lol.

    But of course the owner doesn't bear any responsibility.

    Toyota is hedging their bets with Gilliland's DGR-Crosley in case he twists off.

    Yeah it's his fault for putting inexperienced rookies for sure. But Harrison hasn't exactly been lighting up the ARCA races either so.

    That's part of the reason Greg Biffle is in the 51.

    Kyle wins pretty easily when he races his trucks, so obviously the equipment is not the problem. I'm not sure what else he can do

    Just before the drop of the green flag in his next truck race make him swap trucks with one of the others. I'll betcha that It'll be a different story.

    Sorry, I didn't make myself clear. I think part of the problem is with his expectations. Regardless of their (in)experience, they're not currently and likely never will be Kyle Busch. If he expects anyone he puts in there to be the next Shrub, he's going to be posting unhappy Tweets for quite a while.

    Noah Gragson, William Byron, Christopher Bell, Erik Jones, Bubba Wallace, Brian Scott have all won races at KBM yet they aren't Kyle. I think these guys absolutely deserve flack for not at least winning one IMO.

    Of course you can say Todd should have at Mosport, but he's been in the series for a good minute and hasn't shown top 3-5 speed very often.
