I think Jimmie has plenty left in the tank. He & Hendrick were probably not on the same page when it came to Indy car, so he retired to pursue his dream. That's just my assumption, I could be wrong. GMS has great equipment as shown by Erik Jones last year. Johnson will have some solid runs.

Was listening to Gordon on the late shift and before we set expectations too high let's not forget JJ has never driven this car and Todd has never crew chiefed anything with independent rear suspension. They're both very talented but saying they have a mountain to climb is an understatement

Gordon will have the notebook / data from the team’s race-winning car.

He’ll be fine.

Curious about not being able to drive it as sideways as in the older cars.

For a driver who seems to like the feel of using the over steer that comes with throttle input, I wonder what exactly he means.

Id like to see the 43 do a Ken Block tribute. By JJ. like say he wins and does a Block style burn out all around the track.
