    That's kind of a reach isn't It? Two completely different outfits.

    I'm just saying there's a lot of people that would be led to think the race name and Ally 48 are the same

    I wish this race was at a short track, pick any one I don’t give a damn. Just not another 1.5 miler.

    I'm actually looking forward to the Kansas Night race, no Kyle in Trucks either. Seems like it's a better show under the lights than in the daytime.

    Commencements weren’t much of a conflict in May in South Carolina. :D

    Should have combined the graduations with a discount. Show up in your cap and gown and get 15% or something.

    Martin Truex Jr: Kansas could be one of the ‘coolest races of the year’

    “It’s really come into being an awesome race track,” Truex said in a media release. “It’s gotten back to where you can run all over. The top lane against the wall comes in – the bottom is still good. You name it and you can run it.”
    “I think the cool part about going there is that it’s a great race track and it’s weathered over the years since that repave (in 2012). … I think that will play into making the package we’re taking there even better than it’s been at some other places. I think it has the potential to be one of the coolest races of the year honestly. It’s going to be fun.”

    Me too. Less since their pick up and move to LA.

    I don't mind the former greats of rivals though. Even the Donkies aka The Broncos.

    The Nigerian Nightmare gotta love it.

    Not surprised Harvick on the pole. He's been fast since they rolled off the truck.

    19th on the 5-lap chart, 14th on the 10-lap. Nothing anyone else would celebrate but hopefully a sign of a solid weekend.

    The sad part is... Matt Crafton's truck pole winning speed was faster than all the cup cars except the SHR Fords plus Chase Elliott and Truex. Think about that for the premier series...:oops:

    yeah I am crying real crocodile tears. Hopefully it will be as good as that race was or better.

    Bubba Wallace team claps as they make it through inspection. They were supposed to start 12th but now will start either seventh or eighth.
