    For me, it might be Martin Truex Jr but I am going to wait until after the 2020 season to make my decision final. It could change. What about you guys and girls?

    I would love to see Larson in a Chevy at HMS after JJ retires. But If she keeps on improving I wouldn't mind seeing Deegan get the shot. I'm already starting to like her racing skills more and more.

    10 years later and I'm still in mourning from my driver retiring. The sport just isn't the same when the guy you rooted for over decades is no longer racing

    Truex_rox 19 looks better than ever.

    You and me both, although Kurt will be the other driver I root for after JJ moves on.

    I'm gonna be keeping an eye on the relatively less hyped younger Hendrick drivers too.

    JJ was my driver after Sr died ,took me awhile to switch to him but it was a good choice for me. Might take awhile to find another one.

    Nobody really speaks to my soul like ol JJ does. The dude is an absolute legend of a racecar driver and human being and will never be replicated again in the sport.

    Wow. You've witnessed 14 cup championships as a fan. Incredible.

    Harvick will retire from a Ford whilst that 48 suffers many years of mediocrity and no more victories. I hope Jimmie enjoys retirement because his best cup days are behind him already. Hahahaha

    Drivers come and they go. You have to have a couple lesser favorites to move up. Jimmie has been my #2 driver for his entire run. Byron and Bowman will be taking Jimmie's place in my fandom world.
