    Truex_rox 19 looks better than ever.

    Crazy that Jimmie Johnson is not even on there.

    HMS has removed SunEnergy1 from their site as a partner, I guess they decided not to re-up.

    Who likes winning anyways!

    Seriously though that sucks, loved their paint schemes.

    That was last night, it was a great show. Had a full house of Gordon, Brad, Joey, Knaus, Jamie Mac, Larry, etc.

    Andy Petree flat out admitted that the Chevy teams do not share info and that Chevy does not push for them to. This was speculated about here last year when they were struggling and you compared them to the Toyota and Ford teams, but it was interesting to finally hear one of them come out and say it. Knaus said it's hard enough sharing information in-house with 4 teams under 1 roof, let alone all of the manufacturer teams.

    Logano also said he expects Chase to more or less excel in this rules package since it features aspects of speedway racing which Chase has quickly become one of the better ones in the field at, and also because the feel of the cars is similar to the 2014/15 Xfinity cars in which he won his title and finished 2nd.

    yeah I saw that..I thought that whole conversation was B.S. about other teams working together and poor Chevy not doing so. In house is about as good as it is going to get unless the OEM is spearheading the meetings, and frankly the only one who has their nose in everybody's business is Toyota and that hasn't proved to be an advantage or disadvantage.

    This appears to be one expensive journey to re-creating an Xfinity Car...

    Just set $10 million "budget" and run Jimmie Johnson's dream 25 Race Season (and knock off about 3 bedrooms/2 baths from the mansions these drivers live in).

    Revman might be right, NASCAR-IROC may be the future -- they can get started by rolling out OEM-friendly bolt on body panels (RFID implants), with spec engine built and tuned for you (until the electric motor and chassis/battery are ready).

    Perhaps NASCAR will give each team an approved wrench set to play with the suspension.

    Probably because he doesn't live in the lower series long after he has worn out his welcome?

    So it's okay for Chase to run a handful of races in NXS every year but not Kyle?

    Why don't you count the number? and compare it to the driver fans complain about? There is your sign

    Not from me he doesn't, and I might be his biggest fan here. Chase, stay where you belong and lets somebody who needs a shot in a quality car have a chance to prove themselves.

    Spencer Gallagher was originally supposed to be in the car this weekend. I wonder what happened?


    Chase has been a replacement driver for JRM, so its the next best bet. IMHO I would rather see Byron get more seat-time. Sponsors come first though.

    lmao what a weak argument. Listen I'm as big of a kyle busch fan as anyone but it was ridiculous when he was racing 20 times a year in the minors. No cup champion with 50 wins should be doing that. And u guys compare that to chase elliot doing one race when he only has like 2 career cup wins lmfaooooo who cares, its not the same

    No, not the same. but the easiest way to draw the line is at zero.

    If he was still partying like its 1999, they would have suspended him for a looooong time.

    Chase has run 14 Xfinity races in three years since going full-time Cup.

    Kyle has twelve seasons of 14+ Xfinity appearances since going full-time Cup.

    Toyota's deal is so different. You only have JGR (and LFR kind of). TRD is more heavily involved in support than the other manufacturers (Ford is catching up). Why would they not be at the table when the information is shared?

    Yes. It is okay. He's Chasing history.

    The #8 car is one of those cars that run occasionally to help support the team as a whole.
    I am sure other Xfinity teams would like to be able to do it. I am not condoning Cup Teams like JGR, Penske or SHR do this. These are low budget Xfinity teams attempting to add to the small sponsor monies and purses being paid.

    Spenser Gallagher was supposed to be in the 8 car in the first place for Daytona. o_O

    So how many races a year can a driver run before it's not okay to run XFINITY?

    Y'all want Cuppers banned from XFINITY, but Chase running is cool? So is it a "Chase Elliott can run" or "Kyle Busch can't run" - which is it?

    While you weren't paying attention, Cuppers have a reduced schedule even more so this year in the lower series while you are beating a dead horse.

    So there won't be any bitching if/when Kyle Busch wins an Xfinity Series or Truck Series race this year, right?

    I think people got tired of a select number of drivers running a vast number of races at the level, hence the restrictions. I don't think many people will have a problem with either running a handful this year.

    Nobody gives a sh!t if Kyle Busch (or anyone else) runs a few Xfin/Truck races. We complain when he's doing it 20 times a year, just like we would if Harvick or Logano was doing it too. This isn't a difficult concept to understand

    They will be even more of a non issue this year, both of the lower series have blocks of racing contests that Cuppers are banned from, I believe they are banned for all of the chase type races also and any all star cars with a non cup drivers are banned from homestead this year I believe. They have taken the reason for having all star cars that race for the owners championship money only out of the loop
