    Been fairly impressed with how the Truck Series has remained steady of decent teams, new entries, etc. 34 trucks at Iowa & 33 at Texas for the Triple Truck events.

    It's almost like that's what happens when you have a series with a decent aero package that doesn't change all the time, and a chassis/engine that remains consistent. I wish NASCAR would run more things like they do in the Truck Series.

    I'm still recovering from learning that Circuit City still exists.

    That's pretty much nonsense if you have been following all of the changes they made with the spec? engine and teams building their own to out run it last year, and the last minute upping the HP on the spec engine to defeat the big money teams efforts right in the middle of the playoffs. Now if you can ignore all of that, yeah it has remained steady. :D:rolleyes:

    The best thing about the truck series is that "the experts" on what is good racing don't follow the series very closely and pick apart every little thing. ;)

    I was talking more about the bodies and chassis, but okay :cheers:

    Only the name still exists. Shortly after the stores closed for good, another company bought the name and sell products online. I don't think they have any stores.

    Tyler Ankrum will reportedly S&P the NEMCO 87 to keep his playoff waiver.

    32 of Daniel Sassnet has withdrawn. 33 trucks for 32 spots now.

    Yes even though it’s just online and no Brick/Mortar stores, they are sponsoring a race and a car. Which is so crazy to me! Now they just need to find Hut Stricklin and have him make a cameo this weekend.

    Chandler Smith 2 tenths over the field in his first practice in a truck and with KBM. Hot seat for Burton and Gilliland now smoldering

    If Smith wins this week, two thirds of my bold prediction would be fulfilled within eight days.

    I like how Ross looks this weekend, he’s my pick for the win

    Yeah, 7/10ths on the 10-lap looks promising.

    Severe thunderstorm watch until 9PM CT in the area. Not good for drawing a crowd tonight to lure Cup but not much you can do.

    Double header on Sunday sounds like a plan to me.

    Joe Graf Jr sucks, change my mind

    I hope they get it in late, I heard the radar looks decent

    Tonight’s Truck Series race at Iowa Speedway has been postponed due to rain. NASCAR has rescheduled the race for noon ET on Sunday. FS1 will broadcast the race live.

    Yeah, I've never known the Iowan events to be of much trouble myself.

    It's a damn shame politics, casinos, and half assed manufacturers races at Michigan is blocking a Cup race from Iowa Speedway most likely..

    Big blow to Niece Motorsports. Can't imagine this is good momentum for this team to fail inspection.

    Figures they take a win away from a small team. Joey’s magical setup last weekend had no issues of course. I will be shocked if they ever do it for the money makers but mid pack teams ye be warned
