Is it true they are going to be using all the #95 cars from this season, for next year?
Great way for JGR to sell off the junk. Wonder who will be Bubba's coach.?
The 95 team renumbered without a charter.

Yes, Jordan isnt coming in to run second hand cars and neither is Wallace. He could stay at Petty for that.
So your just stating your opinion? I would think at best Bubba would get Denny's car from this year and Denny would get some new cars. Especially if he wins the championship this year.

This is huge for Bubba & also, the sport in general. Jordan has the ressources to make this succesul. Congrats to Bubba for landing this ride. I think he'll contend for wins next season.

I'm not sure about this. Even with a JGR/Toyota alliance and a blank check this team is gonna take a while to get going. In my humblest of opinions I don't think Bubba is a great driver. Aric Almirola was doing better than Bubba in the 43 and I don't think Almirola is a great driver either.

What was rumored is fact, so congrats to this group. Any new team will take time to develop and gel, no matter the resources. Without track practice prior to races that makes it even harder. Bubba is improving as a driver but needs to demo his ability to compete without being a hot head.

Excellent news. This group will add eyes to TV ratings and will sell tickets in the future.

Adds value for NASCAR and the other teams.

No he wasn't. Bubba has equaled or outperformed him in that car.

Top 10s by year for the 43

Almirola-
2012- 4
2013- 6
2014- 7
2015-6
2016- 1
2017-6 (in only 29 races due to injury)

Wallace-
2018- 3
2019- 1
2020- 5

They're close to each other in talent. IMO, Aric drove the 43 better. Not by a landslide I will admit. Unless Bubba can rack up 3 top tens these final few races it's gonna be pretty undisputable...

Not much reason to compare stats. His skills aren't the main reason he is getting the this opportunity.

And Almirola went to drive for one of the top teams in the sport and he isn't setting the world on fire. That isn't happening with Wallace. Of course if they do the same thing they did with Barney when they needed him, they could be competitive. Neither Hambone or Jordan are businessmen, but they should be familiar with the saying, they own the stick, the ball and the ballpark and they don't. Yeah it should be interesting.

Aric already had quite a bit of Cup experience prior to going full-time with RPM. Bubba stepped in with less experience - in Cup and overall - and here he is still pretty much at least matching Aric's numbers. Another factor being overlooked is the manufacturer change that came along around the time that Bubba hopped in the RPM scene.
