    Byron is almost a guaranteed winner next year. He has been too close and led too many laps and it's pretty obvious Chevy is going to have a better car to start with next year for Chad to work with.

    Definitely Byron, especially if Chevy fixes their nose.

    Matty D in Penske equipment?.. uhh yeah gotta go with him 10/10 times.

    I honestly think hes one of the greater talents we've seen in a long time. I'd put him above Larson let alone William Byron or those other guys

    Honestly, it could be anyone. Got to remember Daytona and Dega are things. I mean this last season, we was close to Justin Haley being the first, first time winner of the year. If Bowman didn't grab it a week before he would've been. But, I got to go with Matt Dibenedetto.

    The Daytona 500 means any driver can get his first win. Rain has given a few their first wins. Just stay out after 2 heat and it rains hard.

    Remember when we all thought Trevor Bayne was the next big thing?

    If he drives as well as he self promotes himself, we're looking at another 7 time in the near future. I think the question of how good he is will be solved real quick next year.

    He didn't get his next top 5 until 2016

    Not really, being with a new team can slow progress. Did he get to keep his old CC?

    that's funny. Moving from Leavine to the Wood brothers and that is a problem. No bud, the way I look at it, if he can't succeed at the Wood brothers he can't succeed anywhere.

    How much of his Leavine ride was JGR. I think the CC makes a huge difference in your ride.

    I believe you also said something about moving to a new team can slow progress. I'll say hide n watch. The crew chief in this case doesn't mean squat IMO.

    The crew chief always means something. Just ask Joey Logano.

    That's what they said with the first Camaro. Pretty cool that there is a parts freeze to reduce spending, and Chevy gets a new car. Hmmmmmm......

    Probably should ask Denny Hamlin. That was his old crew chief DiBenedetto had and comparing seasons past to what Hamlin did this year with a different crew chief, I would say it doesn't mean squat in this case.

    I know you continue to keep carping about that, but the freeze is on specific parts.

    Oh like the ****** body wouldn't be one of them? I'm good with it. If Chevy craps the bed with this gift, Jim Campbell should be fired. We are probably looking at Chevy dominance ala Ford 2018. No prob, MY TRD powered Toyotas will get the jump just like they always do on the Next Gen....and we will start this all over again.

    I think Reddick is gonna be the first new winner, unless McDowell wins the Daytona 500.

    I'm surprised you think MTJ will get a win without Cole Pearn. :unsure: :eek:
