    Any chance he has a personal services contract? ie: He (but not the team) gets paid to promote Dominos?

    Maybe the deal with Petty, Coke, and Dominos a couple weeks ago might be a “tell” for something to come.

    Bubba running a legends car and look at the sponsor. Baby steps I guess.

    Truex_rox 19 looks better than ever.

    I hope that encourages them to pursue further opportunities. :)

    Wow about time Domino's did something.

    With how much he promotes them for free & decent personal sponsorship with Coke, you'd think they should step up on the 43 for a race or 2... lol

    What happened to the 43 team? I thought this World Wide Technology / Victory Junction partnership was supposed to help them?

    I don't understand why they're getting beat by Front Row Motorsports. No, this isn't a top level team, but they should be 24th-25th in points right with Hemric & Ty Dillon.

    How many years has it been since Richard Petty associates put a top 25 car on the track with any driver? Even when Richard owned the team he never did and he had a champion (Lebonte) at the wheel.

    Uh, Bobby Labonte finished top 25 in points multiple times, as did Aric Almirola.

    Almirola had a real sponsor who brought money for cars.

    That was a great run and a well-deserved finish. According to David Smith in The Athletic, Bubba had the 13th fastest car on Sunday in Central Speed Ranking over the full race, and the 4th fastest in the final quarter.

    In my opinion, a big 4th quarter improvement like that would imply (a) they worked on the car to make it better during the race, (b) Bubba was up on the wheel making it happen, and (c) some fast cars didn't make it to the 4th quarter. A really impressive result.

    Charlie Spencer Short tracks and road courses rule.

    I hope the team can keep it up.

    People legitimately expected Labonte to win races and he never really even was a factor. This team hasn't been good since John Andretti drove for them.

    That was a great run and I'm happy to see bubba put together a good run.

    It's sad to say but when a team comes from the mid 20's to run top 5 my first thought is "man I hope that car makes it through tech". Pretty rare that happens and they still stay within the rules.

    With all that said I hope they can put together some consistent top 15 finishes the remainder of the season. He's driven hard all year

    Yea for Bubba and the team.
    Please don't tell me it is common place to refer to the race as four quarters. Was halftime at the end of the second stage when they rode around under caution for no apparent reason?

    They glossed over what an accomplishment and story it was, instead covering the huge drama filled racing for the last spot in the chase (cough cough) They never backed off even after Johnson wrecked out and Boyer was safely in.
