Yeah, you can’t count KFB out of any potential win unless he’s in the garage. They had a good car today.
It's been years since we could say that about KB, imo.

"turbo like the NASCAR game x button"

Steve LeTarte ladies and gentlemen, referencing a feature that never existed in any NASCAR game.

IMO, if you're in an RWR car on old tires you should consider volunatrily dropping to the back for the restart. JJ had to know he was way off.
If this were the championship race in Phoenix then yes, but otherwise no, they have every right to try their hand at strategy just like anybody else

Who’s your driver this year?
Doesn’t the 9 car have 9 races this year out of the top 10?
Bobby, Chase leads the series in wins and points this season.

You have a plethora of performance advantage - based comebacks at your disposal, I don't think referencing this season is one of them XD

KDB is definitely hitting a rough patch on luck. Do I believe in luck in racing? Not really, and certainly less regarding good luck. I’ve seen more bad luck over the years. Kyle has a bucket full of that right now.

Yes, this hasn’t been a great season for the 18. Seems the Toyos were behind with this new car.
Also, Kyle hasn’t been as successful with Beshore.
He’s still arguably the best driver in the garage and he’s definitely leading everyone in Cup wins.
I think they’ll get back on track.
I think Kevin will also get back on the winning side soon.

Your point? Chase is out performing Kyle this season, Chase is out performing everyone this season. Regular season points leader, most wins as well. So I don’t see the point you’re making here…
It would be easier to say "talk to me when Chase hits 60 wins and 2 titles" lol there's no point in arguing the season

“This season.” I’ll give you that.

Kevin is done, imo.

KB isn't done, but I don't think he's got more than 10 wins left in him.

Hamlin is a bonehead but I disagree with his take that he's not a top 100 talent in the sport.

Hamlin is still almost as good as anyone.

A short track somewhere
Has NBC benched Rutledge? I swear I haven’t seen him on a broadcast since Atlanta

I thought he did a few segments at New Hampshire.

NBC got a lot of backlash, rightfully, over the Chase Elliott Show at the Dawsonville Pool Room 400 at Chase Elliott Superspeedway on the Chase Elliott Network.

Head to head (as in when Chase and Kyle actually have raced together. ) Chase isn’t to far behind in wins. Both have the same amount of championship(again head to head) and avg finish is pretty close. At the rate Kyle has been, Chase probably will be out doing him soon enough. Again, that’s head to head. Kyle has been racing a lot longer than Chase. Of all time, right now Kyle is the better of the two. Last few seasons, not so much.

Chase needs to keep an eye on that Ty Gibbs kid 🤭
