That is great. There are some good things happening to get me excited about next year.
I hope they keep this to deserving drivers only and don't fill the field out any more than 12 cars.
Maybe 2021, this next one coming up sadly has the like 100 ways of getting in. I want it going back to pole sitters only. No matter if it's a small field or not, it's how it suppose to be.
Pole winners, former Busch Clash winners should be 12-16 cars.
Teams get to see how their car stacks up in speed, races on long runs, and how it races in the pack. Good advantage over non entries. The more the merrier as far as teams are concerned.
Perfect seeing how I still call it the Bush Clash.
heck I still say winston cup sometimes...
I don't know in may age range I still think of it as the Bud Shootout.
2019 Pole Winners (and have a 2020 ride)
1. William Byron
2. Aric Almirola
3. Kevin Harvick
4. Ryan Blaney
5. Austin Dillon
6. Joey Logano
7. Jimmie Johnson
8. Chase Elliott
9. Kyle Larson
10. Brad Keselowski
11. Denny Hamlin
12. Clint Bowyer
13. Kyle Busch
Former Busch Clash winners (not otherwise eligible)
14. Kurt Busch
Daniel Hemric and Daniel Suarez would give us 16 if they could get rides.
- Alex Bowman is the only Hendrick driver to miss the cut. Since Hemric is with JR Motorsports, it's likely that Hendrick gives him a one race deal in the #88 so they can get that car some on-track time.
- Only two JGR cars make it, Jones and MTJ are watching from the pits.
- Penske and CGR have all of their cars in the show. SHR would be in the same boat if they hadn't fired Suarez.
I guess you could also include former Daytona 500 winners, but doubtful that it adds more than 1-2 cars at most.
"The exclusive field is limited to 2019 Busch Pole Award winners; past Busch Clash champions who competed full-time in 2019; former DAYTONA 500 champions who competed full-time in 2019; former DAYTONA 500 pole winners who competed full-time in 2019 and 2019 NASCAR Cup Series Playoff drivers."
Newman, Jones, Bowman, Truex. @The Nature Boy, your 'Notable things' need revisiting.
Should just do pole winners on the road course
It was just a hypothetical to my post. We know NASCAR wants a big field.
