    I will be there for all races this weekend. Looking forward to the K&N race at the dirt track mostly.

    Might try going to UFC if the traffic after the Xfinity race isn't bad, is traffic not too bad (besides maybe the Cup race) at LVMS anymore, anybody know??

    I’ll bet Mark doesn’t think about this as often as some people here do.

    I've been able to watch every bit of the West Coast Swing every year since 2014. Three different, dynamic race tracks that all produce some good racing. What's y'alls favorite track from the next three?

    Phoenix for me too. One of the more underrated tracks on the schedule IMO. Almost always one of the top two or three Chase/Playoff races.

    I like Phoenix even better now since the re-mod, and Auto Club..I say Auto Club because I think the new package is going to really work there. Going to be interesting at Phoenix also because they will be running the open package there.

    It is a similar deal like they had with Kurt in the 41 with Monster/Haas.

    '95, right? That may have been my first Cup race. My first race was the Busch race there in Nov. '94.
    Possible 'Bold Prediction'???

    RWR have one of the original RPM charters now I think. RPM leased the #9/#44 in 2017, and the #43 last year, so whichever RWR has now has to have been bought - but I think there is some sort of understanding or agreement between the two that basically says it's always to be controlled by RPM to some degree.

    Yup. Gene is lining up new customers in Mexico for his company now that all the cars will be made there. :sarcasm:

    that really isn't a joke, but think South America as a whole. Nissan was the last one I heard that started a plant there.

    I was at that race, it was so cold beers were freezing in the can after you opened it. Pit crews went to the local hardware stores and got 2x4's and sheet plastic to make tents to get out of the wind. terrible....
